While I'm not personally bothered about the discussion one way or another, it seems wrong to ban talk on the subject. Yes, the threads go round and round in circles but some orgers seem to need to talk about it, so it seems unreasonable to disallow that discussion. It may well be their way of trying to cope with their grief.

We have a singular MJ thread, can't we just have one thread for Prince + drugs? The org will still need moderating for the subject because threads will likely still be created, so just closing them and pointing them to a sticky seems the most fair solution to me.

Agreed. I have asked for a clear cut, mature reason(s) why the "temporary suspension" has been given. If I don't see it in the next few days I think I'm just going to delete my account because like I said before it isn't right. It's an abuse of "power" on what is meant to be a community forum. A forum is meant for discussion and those discussions should be moderated yes but not dictated. There is no legality issue and discussion raises questions which raises intelligence.

Some people are agreeing with the "suspension" because they don't "like" the topic. Emotional decisions aren't in everyone's best interests. It should be a case of "if you don't like the topic of this thread, don't click on it". Me personally, I probably won't click on it, but I know that others do want to and they should be given that chance to.



The reason of "too much speculation and not enough facts" has been given which I find to be a most hypocritical response. The majority of threads are speculative. There is no suspension to talk about what happened to Prince's son or Prince's "hip surgery" but yet this topic is off limits.


And that how this should work. The people that run and moderate this site have the right to make these decisions and if it really bothers people they are free to leave.

I feel that the discussion should be allowed. I know much of it is speculation but I don't view it as harmful.

You are right. I asked for a mature and clear reason. None have been given. As I said before, I personally cannot be part of a community that behaves like this. I guess with Prince passing, so did all sense on this forum.

Deleting all of my posts as we speak and then will delete account. After 12+ years it's time to move on.

Prince was human and imperfect as we all are. I loved him, you loved him we loved him and more important Our God Jehovah loved him. We deeply miss him, but his music and memories last..."forever".

If people choose to leave because of this then that's their loss. There was no new information to discuss. It seems some people are just obsessed with talking about drugs or conspiracy theories. confused

If mass amounts of people leave the board there will be a board with no content. The content is provided by people who join.

Who are these 'mass' leavers? I'm not going anywhere and I get the sense most in this thread won't be leaving either.

A few orgers I have corresponded with have said they are leaving. Some of them actually contributed post to the board.

You think they're leaving because they can't discuss Prince and drugs?
