Why have a load of threads been deleted
« on: January 12, 2020, 06:57:17 AM »

Why have a load of threads been deleted? This is the kind of thing @u2 did that made it such a boring place. Deleting threads is not the ‘light touch’ this forum prides itself on

They haven't - they have just been moved to a brand new section of their own.

There is now a child board of General U2 talk called "u2 and other artists"

All the existing threads of that nature are in there.

Here is the link to that section:

Yes, a couple members sadly deleted their accounts today. We are disappointed as we've been accused of leaning left or right when we've allowed all talk from both sides. Otherwise, there are tons of threads we would have deleted if we were politically biased as we've been accused of.

Hopefully they will come back after a spell,  sometimes a break can be a good thing.

Agreed. Everyone is always welcome and I totally get needing a break sometimes.  :)

I pretty much avoid the political threads whenever possible. I do sometimes get suckered in by the Brexit thread. I do have quite strong opinions on politics, but mostly, i try and keep them to myself. Just so not to upset another forum member. I know all to well how heated Politics can get.
I was actually a leading figure against the Tory Govts "Bedroom Tax". I was a little bit famous for a while. I ran a protest group which had near 20 000 members. It got nasty in there at times....so much so, it made me ill and i needed to take a step back from it all.
In the garden I was playing the tart
I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

It wasn't.  Just JTNash arguing for censorship of political views she disagrees with and Big Willy making self-destructive posts.

I sometimes slip into Angry Middle-Aged White Dude mode and rant about SJW extremism, even though I'm mostly an SJW myself. I couldn't ride a motorbike for two months, and riding is my zen.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.
