to Keith Jordan

Post by sulis »

In one of the threads I have written that DG does not seem a fan of healthy lifestyle and you have locked the thread because you stated we should not be bashing him for his weight. Well I think it not fair, we should be free to write whatever we want if it is not insulting and writing that he has aged a little too fast because of his indulging in you know what is rather an expression of being sorry for him; okay, okay that's the musicianship that really counts I agree, but he's a rare case of a man with superb looks lost in just a few years, it was not only a question of beauty, his face had something poetic about it, something dreamy that well matched the mellowness of some of the Floyd songs that went way over the idea of being beautiful and sexy.
Having said that I also think that what you have done it's not fair because I've read much worse threads than this, I refer the "bulge" thread complete with pictures of the poor chaps' crotches which was way vulgar, a true Floydian would never waste his time with that also out of respect for the band.

I am sorry you feel that way. Threads like the one discussing Gilmour's weight, from my past experience of running this forum for nearly 10 years, tells me that thread would degenerate very quickly indeed. That is my reason for locking it. It was not because of its current content, but for what would eventually happen to it.

I put a lot of time and effort into running this site and I do not want to see it degenerate.

I hope you understand my perspective, position and action. :)

:lol:
If I had said something like "There's a PM function on the forum for things such as this to prevent the creation of needless threads etc etc" He would think I was telling him off. I'll leave that to you though :lol: :lol:

"Neptunepinkfloyd.co.uk is the 257237th most visited website of internet."
http://www.ant.com/site/neptunepinkfloyd.co.uk/
Not bad considering that includes porn.



Edit:Then again, it think it is the 15th most visited site. Maybe it only counts people who have the toolbar. In which case there would be massive skewing towards You Tube.

Keith, I am the author of the thread you recently locked. I just want you to know that I didn't start it to cause any trouble. I only wanted to know what people thought of the entries. I strongly respect both Gilmour and Waters and would never say/do anything to insult them. I feel as though I've insulted them now. :( ](*,)

Yes I do understand your purpose and effort but to be coherent with the aforementioned you should have locked the thread about "the bulge" too.
By the way I do know the PM function but I did intend to discuss this issue with anybody who wanted to say something about it.

I thought a 'viel' was something a car had 5 or 6 of. What doesn't the man eat!

well some people do find it rude to talk about a persons weight. David looks happy now with his wife and kids. It should not matter if a person is overweight as long as they are a good person.
