I appreciate that your role is to moderate and that being so when someone states they are leaving it is 'easier/best' to lock their conversation.
Is it possible to have it unlocked? Can the decision be reviewed? I would like to post a response to the poster. Having someone express their hurt and decision to leave does not necessarily correspond with them actually leaving. A number of times I have seen that posters state they are leaving due to perceptions about posts. Most often it is a phase and the timely 'don't do that, we are all here for you' posts are what keeps them contributing.
Why decide at DC's post that he is never coming back, why not allow an outpour of support if that is what there is.
It just seems a bit premature a response to his post is all, allow the posters the opportunity to respond as would be the case in other situations.
Please, I implore you to reconsider for the sake of fairness.
