Firstly, a BIG Thank You to all the kind comments I have received over the past couple of days, I really have been quite taken back with them ;-) I will respond more formally in the few days but for now.....other matters !!
It is with deepest regret......especially as the Forum is about to close, that I find myself having to intervene and delete a Topic/Thread (Here's A Theory + Others) due to some negative comments directed to members of the group. Previously I have myself come under scrutiny for such interventions. Whilst I try to keep these to a minimum, equally I have to balance the views of others as well as my own reputation and that of the group. I also value the personal friendship I have built up over the years with Mike, Cheryl & Jay and will therefore intervene when I believe it necessary to do so to protect their name and/or to show my loyalty and support.
I have just read through the 'Here's a Theory' thread and decided (as I did yesterday) that if I delete certain entries, it looses the plot and makes no sense, which ultimately raises more questions and stirs up the comments yet again. Therefore, history has taught me to delete the topic in it's entirety in an attempt to close the matter down.
As I have said may times before, Yes you are entitled to your own views however, when comments may be deemed by others or me to be upsetting, rude or unsuitable, I reserve the right to delete them. I am not directing this at anyone in particular as to be honest, I wasn't looking at who posted what, just the comments themselves, some of which I felt were un-necessary.
Lets keep the remaining few days of this forum positive and embrace the fact that our childhood heros continue to care about the legacy of Bucks Fizz. I certainly still can't believe that they remain a big, if not bigger, part of my life over 30 years later.
