The article to which the thread linked had been discussed before and that thread was deleted by consensus as it was considered offensive. Now it has resurfaced and this time the thread deteriorated into adult humour. There were calls for another deletion and I acted on it, as we are trying to run a forum which is supportive of the band and also reasonably clean. There is always the Facebook group 'Andy Diamond's Church Street Choir' where anything goes.

I am also locking this thread.

Thanks for understanding.


Edit: Someone has since sent me a pm to say:

Quote :
I'm not being funny but the deletion of that thread is ridiculous, it seems as though if anything slightly off about the band is posted it gets swept under the carpet for fear of offending someone. Pathetic.

to which I replied:

When other members complain, then as Admins we need to make choices. Those choices take a lot of issues into account, incl. the feelings of and impact on other readers and this forum's informal relationship with the band and its management. I am sorry of you're not happy with the decision, but there it is.
