"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "

These things separate me life experience wise from my younger coworkers who are less educated and dependent…See More
