Why close the thread on Sheridan Smith?
You have to remember that though we are all brought here by a common goal, it is the diversity (and the fact we don't want to talk about bikes 24/7) that keep forums (and traffic through the site) thriving, in fact I bet the chat forum has double the posts of the bike forum?
If women don't want to read a thread they don't have too, equally I don't if women are discussing clothing/bikes/male strippers/Joe Swash etc.. It's all a matter of informed choice and not "closing/deleting" a thread because it might offend "someone".
Great mag but don't ruin it by acting like a mormon on the forums.
