I demand my thread reopened. http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-935691/are-we-taught-hitler-was-bad-because-the-allies-won-the-war

It was civil and a good discussion, I still wanted to explain some points better also. Instead shinryou locked the thread, and he doesn't respond to PMs nor can I write him a comment. No rules were broken, he locked it because he thinks 'his' opinion is worth more than ours. You don't just come in, after a moderator or two already overlooked the thread, only for another mod to lock it because it might offend him.

Cheers.

shinryou is one of the customer support staff based in Germany, and I'm sure that it was also strong user opposition to your post (reflected both in moderator reports and a Feedback thread) in addition to his perspective and opinion that led him to review the post and take the action he did. Although his action differed from mine, I believe he did not behave inappropriately.

While your general premise was an interesting one and much of the discussion was good, you chose to include examples and a link to a site that I'm sure you were aware would be highly offensive to many, and in doing so you risked unnecessary conflict and outrage, and in effect encouraged others to also express the offensive views. If you have complaints I suggest you reach out to English-language customer support lead Anonymooo .

I've closed this because General Discussion is not the place to make demands.
