I think the FE blocked it as it was getting out of hand. I am all in favour of the FE controlling the threads and stopping, deleting or blocking them as he sees fit. It would just be nice to have a message from the FE to that effect though.
Not meant to be libellous, more a question, I haven't been to Sheffield for nearly twenty years and back then there was a pub of the same name that reputedly appealed to a certain clientele. I was just surprised to see that this appeared to still be the case. If it caused any offence let FE know, I have no objection to it being pulled. As has already been stated definitely a bit off topic.
