This tool is meant to be used by moderation to put a thread on hold for a short period.

Is this a couchsurfing feature?

Conditions of use

It sometimes happen when a discussion is taking place between many people that two of them are at the computer at the same time for a long time. If they are challenging each other, it is very likely that the discussion will turn into a conversation between the two, leaving behind all other participants.

For the sake of the quality of the argument, the "freeze tool" allows a moderator that is witnessing this event to put the discussion on hold for a time, in order for other people to be able to log on and read it and reply.

It also can be used to defuse an discussion that is turning into an argument.
