IMO you failed to realise the forums are anarchy based, and topics are not locked because they are a flamefest. The only topics I've locked that were not spam were topics that needed locking due to warez or other major infraction topics...
1. From now on only spammers, users posting illegal content, or huge jerks (example - CE) will be banned.
2. Zorotama; Baton101; Sicilian Hound; Dantesinferno are unbanned.
This is Vicious' and my decision.
