Last night I posted the info about AAL's gear getting stolen. This was at the behest of the band to share it in all of the places/forums we frequent. And there were no other posts about it on this forum. The first reply was that it was "covered in the music thread, bro." The thread was then locked. Since this is a community that I am new to, I'm curious why the mods behave as such. I have never been to the music thread, bro. I only come to this particular forum and I would assume there are many people who do the same. AAL's gear gets lifted and a notice about it gets locked because you covered it in some other forum that many of us do not frequent? Just because you spend your time there doesn't mean everyone does. Do you want the Strand, Regiuses and Toone to get home or not? Locking the thread prevented the info from getting as wide of an exposure as it could have and that does not help Tosin or Javier get back their gear.
