I haven't had much to drink and am sure there was a thread about the new President of the USA.

I remember contributing and I don't recall anything dodgy that was said.

Usually these things arte simply locked.

I believe it was started by geronimo.

So what happened here?

.... in my view contained libellous statements. I'm not surprised its gone.

The opening post of the thread contained a libel, so I deleted it - I can't delete an opening post without the whole thread going with it.

That's what happened.

"I can't delete an opening post without the whole thread going with it."

I realised that a few seconds after I had started this thread, however I wasnt sure it was necessarily libellous. Pity the op didn't make it his own opinion rather than a statement of fact, because I am sure there are many people in the world who share that opinion.

There was me thinking it was because of the modesty of our esteemed editor!!!

"I wasnt sure it was necessarily libellous."

Large numbers of lawyers earn large amounts of money because people "aren't sure" if something is libellous.

The FE might not be a lawyer, but he might be a defendant!

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
