Ending or moving a forum discussion that has degenerated too far

I started a discussion by posting a question back in 5/19.  The discussion in still going, and although it has wandered quite a bit, I have enjoyed reading the replies up until now.  Things have taken a bad turn, and now it is the usual pro and con systemd blather that I can read at a hundred other places.

As the originator of the discussion do I have any ability to close it or move it to Off-Topic?  I cannot find any such controls on the page.

I think the only power you have is to delete your own posts. Please don't.

Looks to me like the discussion is back on track, even if it's not the original track. And the last few posts have new information. It should be ok. Things usually have a way of settling themselves down.

Re: Ending or moving a forum discussion that has degenerated too far

@all: sorry about my disruptive behaviour, I've been having a difficult time of things recently and I tend to act out as a coping strategy.

I won't do it again.

For future reference, if you need to, just contact one of the moderators.

"triggered"

You're not sorry and you will do it again, it's in your SJW nature. Go have a cry in the corner for awhile and think about what you cant cope with.

This sounds like good advice, but I do not know who are the moderators. Is there a list somewhere I have missed?

There are no moderators on this forum but there are several admins of which I am one.

Free cynwulf from what?   That was nearly 10 years ago over at FDN.  He self-exiled himself from this forum where he is still an active member.

Enough is enough.  There is lack of self-control all the way around.  Please consider adulthood as an option.
