Quite a difficult thing to write this so please bear with me -

Over the last 24 hours i have had to remove a couple of threads from the forum, this is something i dont like to do as ultimately i like to promote free speech but sometimes it comes to a point where action has to be taken.

Without being to cryptic i am referring to the release of a new album and a north american tour being undertaken by a former member of Hawkwind.

Without feeling the need to go into too greater detail most of you will be aware of various unsavoury incidents that have happened over the years and it's to that end that i feel i am justified in removing the threads in question.

Both Hawkwind and myself try our best to keep a dignified silence on matters concerning this individual where possible, we like to concentrate on what is happening with the band in the here and now and not concern ourselves with what he and others are doing. As long as it has no detrimental effect on the band what former members do is up to them.

However after much soul searching i do think we are fully justified in removing these threads even though i am sure some of you will dis-agree, something you are perfectly entitled to do.

So in conclusion i am asking in the nicest way that no further threads are started in relation to this topic, i fully understand that the individuals who made these posts will have almost certainly done them in innocence and for that reason no further action will be forthcoming.

That said any further threads that are started will not only be removed at the earliest oppurtunity but the person who authored it will be liable to lose their membership to the forum either permanently or for a set period, this will be at the descretion of the forum administrators.

As well as this section i also intend placing it in most other appropriate areas of the forum for maximum visability.

Thanks for taking the time to read and also for your understanding i what i realise is a sensitive issue for some of you but at the same time also try and see it from our side of things.
