""The first thread was closed after a number of offensive comments. The latter threads were closed as they were follow-ups. There's no point us closing a thread if you're just going to make a new one to continue the discussion. Posters can't seem to control themselves in those threads.

Really this is getting ridiculous now. So you can only discuss someone you have heard about in the last few days?

I'm not even that bothered, I only chip in now and again but it's frustrating and annoying - at least be honest DS and tell people what they are allowed to discuss. Offensive comments should, of course be alerted and deleted but there is no clue as to which comments were deemed offensive, multiple threads were locked after completely innocuous comments - most posters were baffled and there is no platform for explanation.

Is there really a need to lock every single thread ?- just delete the offensive posts. I am not a fan of KP or PA. But I would like to retain the right to comment on anybody in showbiz. (within community guidelines obv...!)

The Pete's "suffering" thread is fine though
Even the name of the thread is wrong, and the evil sarky posts on it, it was so bad I stopped posting on it.

Actually I think it was much better to have one thread dedicated to each - saves having numerous threads about them cluttering up the showbiz forum

Well I dont go on that thread as I havent ever watched his show or listened to his music - I find him as dull as ditch water so dont have anything to say. And I am bored to tears with the he is/she is worserer... My point is there seemed to be nothing at all libellous, or against the community guidelines, offensive or anything to warrant the shutting down of 4+ threads.

Well, it would seem FM's are not allowed even one dedicated to Ms Price.

Funny thing is everyone on the Pete thread finds him dull and boring too but they have plenty to say
They don't watch his shows or read anything about him either!!!

Anything that was posted in the KP threads was truth and links to whatever she had said herself. If there was anything offensive said, the removal of the post should cover it. But I think there was too much "alerting" going on, the mods were probably pee'd off

I've popped in the PA thread a couple of times to grumble about the overplayed trailers for his show on ITV2, but I agree with you. I can't quite wrap my head around the fuss PA and KP cause on here and how posters get so personal and vitriolic with each over them to the point bannings occour. And it seems like this has been going on on the forum for YEARS, too.

I'm no fan of either, but come on people!

I am not discussing PA thread as I know nothing about it.

4 KP threads have been locked for no good reason.

There were no vitriolic posts & I'm not making any fuss - just trying to have a discussion.

I think we should all respect the publicity-shy Mrs Hayler's wishes and stop talking about her completely.

You're right. I think old motor-mouth is getting herself in enough hot water and the only voice that should be heard is those of the simpering critic's...

I'm expecting the entire showbiz thread to vanish at any minute considering DS see 'little point in having an open thread discussing' anything in retrospect or if it's not today's news.....oh wait

I found that part of their statement quite bizarre.

Most of what is posted in the pa and kp threads is opinion, not fact. There is nothing wrong with that, this is an opinion board.

Alerting works both ways, we all know of months where both threads were being locked, and in Pa's case, many were deleted, too.

Knowing The Pwicy as we do, it will not be long before she does something worthy of pointing and laughing...and therefore, a thread should be allowed.

Either way, it is very frustrating to see the padlock all over the forum.

For me it's not the two people in question it's the principle. Nothing was said - that I can understand as being wrong but the threads were locked with no explanation. Eventually a general referring back to the rules. I filled in the form to ask what had been done that shouldn't have been (as a relative newbie I find it all very confusing) and the reply I have received only refers me back to the response about 'rules' being broken. Dosn't say which ones, why or how though so I am non the wiser.
The reason people mention the PA thread is because - again I speak personally only - it seems to be different rules being applied or not applied. The responder mentioned there being no control and yet it seems a free for all in the PA thread?!
I definitely don't understand the - nothing is happening today so no point in having a thread - comment. Something could have happened 10 minutes later so would that warrant constantly opening new threads - I thought that was discouraged?
I'm baffled.

But that's the point...she has and they haven't.

If people don't understand why the person got rid of the topic then maybe they should have put themselves forward for the job when it was advertised not too long back

DS gave an explanation for why the first thread was locked, the explanation being the offensive posts being posted on there. As the discussion was mainly about Harvey.s disabilities their explanation for the closure of that thread could be considered reasonable..but there is no reasonable explanation for the closure of the other two IMO.

All that was being discussed in the thread Janna started was KP's tweet about Danny Cipriani and Kelly Brook...and it was closed?? Bizarre.

She's becoming as lockable around here as she who must not be named or MM.

It is strange,maybe a new mod has started,and he/she is a big fan of kate,hope that doesn't sound too offensive If they are going to lock every KP thread,in fairness,they should lock the PA threads as well,some of the things written on there make me go as well,can't have different rules,they have to be fair.

None of what those two get is anywhere near what Helen Flanagan is getting at the moment, but that topic stays open

There can't be different rules for each celebrity, if topics about one person are being locked then all nasty topics should be locked or it's a farce

Agreed - they are all talentless, orange vacuums, and should be treated with the disdain they deserve.

If there is a legal issues, perhaps sharing that with us will prevent us from continuing to make the same mistake?

I do know that she is Jewish. Other than that I know nothing about her except she has a pretty face.
