I’m not sure what forum you are on. Threads that end up locks overwhelmingly from memory are caused by people derailing them (all involved, not just one person).
To my memory (i may be wrong but i don’t think i am), no thread has been locked because of any of the reasons you mentioned except for perhaps necros. Theads get locked because people start arguing and become vile instead of either flagging, or trying to take the high road and calm the situation.
just fyi, I beleive your post was probably caught up when the offending posts were removed and @system removed the replies as well.

On public audit of moderator decisions, e.g. logs of deleted posts, etc. There’s a few issues here and a few things that might be possible.
The main issue with making this sort of thing public is the likely hood of making those people essentially outcasts. I’m not aware of anywhere that does this, probably for similar reasons.
Id be very wary about having a public list of who did what wrong.
As for giving a public list of number of flags, number of actions etc. high level stats is probably something that could be done but might need to be discussed, as its not something easily exportable, and not something we’d generally want to do.
As a quick example though as it seems to be something people arent sure of.
(numbers are approximate from a quick manual look)
Over the last 14 days, there have been:
- 11 deleted posts by moderators
- 8 of those posts were spam
- 3 of those posts violated a rule.
This does not include deleted posts by users of which there were a much larger number, and does not include a number of system deleted posts (aprox 7)
We have on occasion hid a couple of threads as we generally don’t delete them, but this is quite rare.
