(e.g.)
Since I closed the thread with no warnings, I'll respond. Toejam had not been in trouble before and this was a pretty minor infraction. The thread was difficult to keep on topic anyway. Like the others said, better close it early than hand out warnings later.

AND...Many times I warn via PM. That way the problem usually gets fixed without a public whoopin'. SO while I didn't warn Toejam this time, I very well could have and you'd have never known it!
