I know the first one got locked because it immediately turned personal, and I said so in the thread.

The second one seemed okay right up until a certain politician was named, which history indicates is the spot where the conservation immediately devolves into a flame war. I imagine it was locked as a precautionary measure.

So far, this one's stayed on topic without the requisite name-calling and blame laying. As long it stays that way, I can see them letting this one stay.

Looked back, there was nothing going awry in the topic I made. Doesn't matter though, we'll just discuss it here, i was just curious behind the "why" when nothing was derailing.

Btw no talks of cancelling the season

For now...

The other posts were locked because they were starting to move into politics and other areas, as well as they were in General Discussion which is for topics directly related to playing MLB The Show.

As long as this stays specifically on the topic of what will baseball do and stay away from political discussion, it should be fine.

Though we do have two threads on the same topic.

Thanks for the response. Are you going to get the guy for the big collection tomorrow?

I appreciate the response but at what point does Covid become political? Just curious cause if you're talking about Mozzarella cheese, you're bound to discuss meatball subs. So is it strictly when it leaves baseball and is discussed in a matter of opening schools? Or is Covid considered completely political now because people.

We're not allowed to talk baseball news and discuss amongst ourselves the direction baseball could be headed? The [censored] guys? Why lock two topics that had good conversations going?

Anyone who didn't know, Marlins v Orioles game was canceled due to an outbreak of Covid, they played in Philadelphia last night and Philadelphia is hosting the Yankees and that game was canceled for the same reason.

I was surprised they locked the topic up as well. Guess someone higher up had a say in it.

First off, thanks for the response. 2nd, Where do you draw the line for what can and can't be in General Discussion? I have posted MLB related stuff in GD, and it is left alone. The Coronavirusrelates to MLBTHESHOW. If the season gets cancelled, no more inside edge or roster updates. Why can't we talk about the current state of the world?

You can within reason. Covid is a very charged issue with radically different opinions, that largely start moving into politically charged debate. We are airing on the side of caution, as threads can quickly be derailed.

As far as general vs off-topic.
How does infections affect inside edge and thus in-game content, great topic for general.
Covid affecting baseball in general, best for off-topic.

It's honestly disappointing to me that Covid is politically based! Thanks for the response! Keep up the good work managing the streams and whatever else you do! The gameplay has been better as of recent!
