What happened there?

  [DELETED] 14:35 01 Dec 2003

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.

Well, if it was closed, a posting saying why would be good.

  [DELETED] 17:29 01 Dec 2003

Yes, I agree with you but I didn't close it, so I can't say why it was closed.

Ah Big Brother is alive and well.

Yes, in the shape of FE. I would still like to know why though. Doesn't seem to be anything controversial on the original thread to me.

Fourth post down wandered off the track and could be construed as liable unless proved beyond doubt. j.

If it was construed as libellous, it would have been easier to delete that post without locking the thread.

Good point.Only FE can tell pj in the end as to why it was locked, but maybe because it was wandering off subject, only a guess. j.

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.

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