I don’t wish to provoke an argument but I thought that the whole point of this type of forum is to exchange views.
We will all disagree from time to time.
If as Johnnie says, “We’ve been through this so many time. NO MORE.” then could the same not be said for threads in support of our favourite news channel?
I remember that earlier this year in a thread entitled, ” Greater Powers For Home Invasion Victims” there was one poster who said he would murder a burgular.
If I remember rightly he said he would chase the burgular out of his house and accross fields etc then kill him.
Perhaps he was being a bit Walter Mitty or deliberately trying to provoke a response but if he did actually do that to a burgular then his post in this forum amounts to his criminal statement of pre meditation.
Yet that thread did not seem to be cut short.
What I and my fellow posters said in the threads that have been closed is hardly in the same league as what was said in the “Greater Powers For Home Invasion Victims” thread.
Funny thing democracy isn’t it?
Funny thing free speech isn’t it? :angry:
I have been coming to these forums for ages to get news on Sky News. Yes there are things I find daft such as “who has the best hairdo” type of threads, but I ignore those. Just as I am sure Kay or Emma’s supporters would ignore unfavourable comments.
Am I allowed to criticise?

We know many don’t like Emma or Kay, but many do, Its a topic that has been covered here many times. I’m sure we don’t need to go on and on about it.
The Rules where changed a few months ago, after the last Emma bashing thread. Personal insults on Sky Staff and Forum Members are not allowed here anymore.
If you still have a problem, PM me.
Unless we meet, or have contact with presenters how do we know what they are like. People are different in a work environment, and Kay and Emma must be nice away from the cameras or they would not have a job.
I am also amazed at people thinking that their rants will mean anything at all. Afterall the presenters, reporters and most importantly the bosses at SKY don’t really care what we think.
There are many members of these forums who have been about for a while who just get fed up with the same old tripe repeated every couple of weeks. It is all there to read if you wish, including the old forum.
The issue about actually ‘abusing’ presenters is a no-brainer! It shouldn’t happen there is no excuse……BUT a critical post on their presentation style, appearance on screen etc etc is fine and should NEVER be deleted.
As some of the regular posters on her should know….as a presenter I find Kay the most annoying and patronising of all of the sky crew…but i would still love to have a dinner date with her
Zoe Cummings is a presenter that when she comes on, I either have to mute the screen or turn over until her slot is over, I just can’t listen to her…BUT that never excuses any personal attack on somebody that I know absolutely nothing about.
What these presenters are actually like off screen is probably nothing like the ‘image’ they portray on screen.
So, to some up……I believe very strongly that……NO thread should ever be deleted if there has been no actual personal insult…a critical review/opinion of style etc is not a reason to delete….threads can be ignored!!!!
But any new threads re. thistopic should be closed – but with a pointer as last artivle pointing to the original single open thread – re-directing posts to go there if still about this topic.
That way it is contained to the one thread for posetrity and will not fill-up the forums.
