    2.When it goes off topic and we start entertaining ourselves with goofyness.
    3.Whenever Slobake comments
    4. When the first "debate" starts
    5. When people start debating over who is right and seem to lose sight of the original post.
    6. When it comes down to two people sniping at each other

    9. When the thread becomes a discussion of what it's like to be a 59 year old playing in a cover band in Milwaukee.

    When people try to argue against someone's opinion by using their own opinion. If the topic is subjective, realize others will have a different opinion, and their opinion is no better or worse than your own.

    10. When a thread gains 12 pages of posts while you're at work/sleeping because you live on the other side of the world and you can't be bothered reading them to catch up.

    That or it gets locked :D

    I think you should respond to Mike. Maybe he will admit that you are right.
