'nuff said about it in this thread, me thinks.


Uhh...so then it's ok to discuss a murder of a President and the nutter who did it but not Manson...?
So if someone wanted to start a serial killer thread about the psychology and personalities involved that thread would be off limits also..?

It has nothing to do with it being 'okay' or not, don't be paranoid.   It simply seemed to run its course and a judgment call was made to close it.  

If you want to complain about it, post in a Site Discussion thread.

Paranoid...? Nope...just think it's silly to close threads that adults are discussing when there;s nothing particularly objectionable about the thread.

^Manson's very existence is objectionable but as far as the thread goes I agree.

A PM would have been better than discussing this in a completely unrelated thread methinks - unless there was a conspiracy

For the record, I closed the thread as there was no discussion about the interview itself, just a string of opinions (mine included) about the man himself. I took the view very few, if any, members would be interested in discussing an interview with him & it would merely descend into a hate-fest - if I'm wrong in that assertion, mea culpa.

Now - back to conspiracy theories

It was me alone! There's a grainy 8mm film to prove it.

It was the magic deletion...

LOL
 
I'm not convinced. I've seen the grainy film and it looks like there's a guy in the background holding a delete button.

Ah just what this thread needed, a burst of painfully British in-jokes.    I hear tell the English are almost as obsessed with the JFK case as we are.   Still true?

I wouldn't call Liam and Noel Gallagher a painfully British in-joke - remove the "in" and you're closer to the mark.


Obsessed is too strong a word, curiously interested would a better description. For many Brits the Kennedy era epitomised the America that we aspired to, that aspiration ended abruptly in 1963. I don't think many Brits give much credence to the multitude of conspiracy theories, as I implied in my post on Spencer Perceval (that everyone politely ignored), we have no need for alternative explanations.

Oh I didn't ignore it, it was just such a cordial, proper English slaying that there wasn't much to say.   Consider yourself lucky it was so clearcut.   The JFK case is mostly a torturous, dark infatuation that only gets more confused and bizarre.
