Can I suggest that PCA. start a Social Network forum so that posters can discuss their personal, social and medical problems and those who have no interest can ignore that forum.

"Now chit chat between members is construed as meaningless drivel from the hierarchy."

Really - where did you get that idea from? I invite you to point out where anyone from 'the heirarchy' has mentioned meaningless drivel.

"FE has head in sand and whistles to drown out the rumblings from the lower ranks"

Something else you've imagined. FE is here,responding to your inaccurate comments.

Surely there are plenty of Social Network Forum's already available, and most of them fail or become a success (part or otherwise) because they ponder on other subjects fitting their subscriber's daily requirements?.

The Lounge was closed, and the way things are going so will Speakers Corner, because in my view there was not much difference between the two, and then perhaps this forum can move solely to a PC Advisor only Forum.

I would then suspect that there would then be far less regular contributor's trying to keep this website alive, and perhaps even less advertiser's. So perhaps for consideration and survival a Social Network Forum might not be a bad idea, but personally I could never see a Social Network Forum being allowed or even wanted?.

Looks like I missed the additional comments from about 11.40pm, and hadn't bothered to check before posting my comments, so possible duplications of thoughts?.

I tried to think of an inoffensive way of asking what on earth this is all about, and I realised it probably couldn't be done. I'm sorry, but there are some things that seem to me to be pointless as far as discussion topics go, and this is one of them.

The threads and postings that have been removed if any kind of decent is shown. They are removed and therefore do not exist like shopgirl's posting.

morddwyd's first thread had 20 reply's,his 2nd thread had 24 replies.his 3rd thread had 40 replies.

Surely that tells you his thread was fairly popular.You just have to go to the helproom and see how many replies that some of the threads get.Most of them very little.

So when you get a thread that is popular with the Forum members and you don't like it it gets padlocked.There is no bad language,no arguments and basically no problems.

You get other threads that are short tempered and argumentative and they are left open.

Maybe you are padlocking the wrong ones.
