Whenever someone makes a thread on OT I almost alwasy see someone telling the op to post it in there blog, or it would be better if they did so they don't get flamed, or something along those lines. Basically it just ruines and makes OT even more dull, because that leaves all the good and interesting threads in peoples Blogs. This is good for the mod's because they can basically lock any of your threads and tell you this could be better off posted in your Blog. I for one don't like to make or post in Blogs, and I shouldn't have to be forced to make a blog just because someone dosen't like my opinion on a certain issue, or what and who I encountered today, because thats what OT was made for.

It's a protest! *claps*. Now, a stainless steel lock, or a bronze one? Afterall, this would make a good blog.

What's there to discuss?

Unless it's a cool rant, it's not a good rant. Now please, blog this.

I actually update my blog, with interesting stuff (or at least... somewhat interesting stuff)... So, I guess, I keep **** in my blog.

If some people just thought about it, they could easily tell what is blog material and what is thread material.

Sometimes posters need to try to elaborate and make the thread better. Just posting in one saying "this belongs on your blog" really doesn't help much.

Some thing should be in a blog, but there are quite a few threads that really don't need to be in a blog.

 Quality post. It's people like you who ruin threads because instead of discussing it or just not replying. You post something like this, and when others do that aswell the thread gets locked because there is no discussion to be found and the thread starts to head in the wrong discussion.

No, the thread gets interesting. The mods usually poke around in these kinds of topics and wait for the right time to lock them.

The difference between blog posts and forum posts are the difference between what can be discussed by other people and what is important to the original poster.  So if it's about what you did or something you want to rant about it should go in your blog.  If you are a decent poster then your blog will get checked out by others.....so it will be read.

But I am adding to this discussion, seeing as you and me and anyone else participating are talking about something related to your original post.

I agree with you, i mean..what in this damn world CAN'T be discussed? Rants can be discussed, a day at the mall can be discussed, today at school can be discussed...so wtf? It doesn't make sense when people say "this belongs in your blog because it's not discussable".

The one time I can see where it's necessary to post in a blog is if it's something personal or some inside joke that you and only a few others will get. Threads that are serious & discussable should be posted on OT. So you can get tons of answeres and feedback from other ot members without having to worry about people telling you to Blog it.

 It's not adding anything useful, and when others post similar things, Mod's will look at it and lock it because it's not getting anywhere. The one time I see where this it's okay to do that is if it's some spam topic or a funny thread, but threads like these where people just tell the op to Blog it or complain because it's some other Religion thread end up ruining the creators thread.

If the thread has discussion value, it shouldn't't be locked, unless it directly violates the Terms of Use.

The ones that usually get locked are the ones that are nothing but a statement, with little or no discussion value.

"I had a ham sandwich for lunch"

discuss... That would be locked

We really don't need to get into the threads of someone posting on how drunk they were the night before and scored, or whatever. Like I said, sometimes the original post may seem vague, but if the resulting posts garner nothing but flame, troll, and spam responses, it gets locked...
