There were quite a few people getting out of hand in that topic. As a result I have locked it and redirected it to an older Superman debate. Now, onto your issue.
Just because other people did it too and you're the only one that got a mild reprimand about it does not make it right. I don't care how many other people were telling that person to get a life, you shouldn't have done it to begin with. Should those other people have been reprimanded also? Yes, but it's a little late for that. I've locked the topic, so the issue is over with for now. In the future please don't post flame comments like that. Eric was right to tell you not to do that. We moderators are busy and can't always keep up with threads that are running away, but the best thing to do is to avoid getting into that kind of trouble to begin with. Next time someone comes up with a duplicate topic, or what amounts to a ludicrious idea in your veiw please point them in the right direction towards the original topic, or explain why their idea wouldn't work using logic and reasoning.
