Look, if I want someone to stop making jokes at me, I'll PM everyone and say my feelings were hurt so much that I need you to help me out. Until then, I don't need help. I'm perfectly capable of making my own jokes, or not crying myself to sleep because someone said something mean to me on the internet.
If someone shows up and PMs you and says "Please stop these terrible puns!", then tell me people want me to stop these terrible puns. Don't just pop in and say "I'm closing this because you didn't post enough jokes in the last one I split!", because then you seem like the kid who wasn't included in the fun having a fit over it.
This is pretty much exactly what the other thread was about - people showing up and locking threads for no real reason.
