Band Not Splitting (again)
James (the webmaster of the official site) has posted a message stating that the band will not be splitting and if they ever did it would be announced via the messageboard! He was forced to do this after this posting turned up on the official web site claiming that the lads were going to disband after the December tour.
Yet again this is another example of the problems caused by the messageboard system being used on the official site - there's no way for official messages to be told apart from unofficial posts. There have also been a number of spam and ridiculous racist postings appearing over the last few months...hopefully this will encourage the powers that be to investigate the purchase of a more fully featured message system (for example ubb, vbulletin or one of the numerous open source systems)
Anyway, enough of my rant - here's the full text of James' posting:
And this is the original "spoof" message:
As James said it wouldn't be posted in this manner, but it's also unlikely that Mark would put a PS with the wrong song title in it! :)
