I'd call her a tramp if it weren't for the fact that every guy she's dated has either been underaged or gay.
I've already penned 2 new ditties from the experience: "Sigh, Gagme Styles" and "It's so Harry". Hope you like it.
She fucked Taylor Lautner who has a big cock. She fucked John Mayer who has a big cock. That Kennedy kid looks like he has horsemeat between his legs.
Her hole is stretched, no?
I thought Taylor Swift was a virgin?
We never had sex.
Anything that gets her out of the music industry is good....yeah shes a nasty anti-vigin. God will be angry if you buy her music --- stop now and save your soul!!!!
(What ever gets Taylor Swifts music off the radio can only be a good thing)
Give her some credit. Operating a strap-on for 7 hours straight can't be easy.
[quote]She fucked Taylor Lautner who has a big cock.
Are you serious, R3? You really believe that?
She did the KISS 102.7 Jingle Ball last Saturday in LA. It was terrible! Imagine all the white screaming teenage girls living in LA, in one room at the same time.
Music is DEAD!!! in the USA.
As if. Surely the PR teams can come up something remotely plausible.
The lengths publicists and marketers will go to to make something happen is outrageous and hilarious. They made sure the "couple" were photographed going into HER hotel at 4 A.M. Harry conspicuously carried and overnight kit and a clean t-shirt.(Maybe he doesn't wear underwear or maybe he doesn't change them.)
This morning they are photographed as both conspicuously left, separately, to make sure everyone knew they spent the night together. Under the same roof, if not in the same bed. I'd bet Harry's boyfriend was already lubed up and waiting for him.
The fangurls and the fanbois are lapping it up. Mostly his fans are calling her a slut. So poor Taylor has made a grand bargain with the Devil: She gets to have a new, public "boyfriend" to help promote her album, and Harry gets the additional publicity and expanded markets her fans open up to him.
The onyl thing is Harry is considered aplayer, and a "stud" (don't laugh) and Taylor has promoted a goody goody image which is now at risk. I guess we are the only ones who realize Harry is gay.
The powers that be must have figured the Selen and Justin thing might be getting ready to explode and the Robsten Twilight is finally over or definitely in it's deaththroes. So Taylor and Harry are the new IT couple. Except they aren't.
[quote]She fucked Taylor Lautner who has a big cock.
Dating Taylor Swift automatically makes you a punchline.
R11, that was probably written by Taylor Lautner's PR team. No way is that boy straight.
DL is not even able to keep up with this girl's actions. Now that's saying something.
Maybe at 42 I'm too old to appreciate it, but I remember being 18 very well, so I can see Harry being attractive to another young guy. I can. But he's too young for me.
I can't even picture them kissing. Kissing Taylor would have to be like kissing a 12 year old who is imitating "sexy." Harry looks like one of those demons who used to try to get the 15 yr old virgins to give it up, while he secretly lusted for the captain of the football team. There is no way these two are getting it on.
And what about the whole Taylor Lautner thing, R15? What was that about? Are we really supposed to believe Taylor Lautner had sex with a female?
That 'insidery' creature (with a too-invested whilst not being close enough-sounding story) that appeared on the Nick Grimshaw thread about a month ago dropping hints on some unnamed girl would have been laughed out of town had they named Swift there and then.
Shady piece anyway, because there's no way Nick Grimshaw has invested all that time and effort for the past year+ to act as gooseberry so Harry Styles can use him to 'talk to' Taylor Swift. What planet these PR people are on I've no idea.
There's some talk that Harry has no say in this and is being forced to do it but who knows. Maybe he's taking the heat off someone else. I do know the things being said about he and Grimshaw in particular lately would have been worrysome for his brand-hungry backers and reps.
But, still, hooking up with Taylor Swift is akin to donning a giant rainbow flag. What better place to start, I guess?
It is obvious the park stroll and hotel pictures were ready-to-go camera ops though. Harry can disappear for days on end with discretion (so can Taylor) even around other big stars so it's no real stretch to assume he could visit Taylor Swift more discreetly than making it look like a sex call at the front door twice in a row.
Despite what it's being made to look like though, there's nothing to say they aren't friends. A guy can have a girl friend, though of course they will know the way it looks to the outside world. I'd expect some PDAS soon, to make it look extra ridiculous.
Only good thing of late was an interview with Louis wanking an indoor plant off in front of Harry. I still hope those two are knocking boots.

Seriously, I do wonder if Taylor Swift girl is gay?
No sarcasm. Just the modus is always the same. She took absolute howls of derision from the internet for 'dating' Jake Gyllenhaal. Literally, about 3 people bought it and their PR brought it to an abrupt end because people were just laughing. Not to mention the rest.
But then she bounces back to seemingly pick up (or that's how it's being played out) yet another strongly-rumoured fruity type. A real person would have more of a sense of self, no? But if you are gay, and desperate to cover for yourself too, then you'd go to those lengths time and again imo.
Also, her and Harry's backstory is ludicrous. You'd never trust this guy again if you buy that he dumped Taylor and went off with at least one other chick at around the same time.
The press' desperation to link her and Styles is also interesting. They're assured of stories and pics for months. She spent far more time with Ed Sheeran recently. The DM did hint at something there but it was never blown into epic proportions after 1 day like this.
All pretty atypical of the media and PR behaviour. I hear Modest! Management are absolute cunts as well. One Direction is their main, if only, cash cow.
R18, what do you think of the Taylor Lautner thing?
I would bet the farm that Swift is lesbian or bi, leaning strongly towards women. So, any of her "boyfriends" are immebiately suspect...
Taylor Swift IS a virgin. She only has anal sex!
I don't know anything about that, r19. I suspect Taylor Lautner is man-friendly given the numerous rumours and hints on it?
I saw a chart of men Taylor had been linked to yesterday. Many of those named had had gay rumours or were the type to be aspiring or looking for a career boost: Chace Crawford, Zac Efron, Lautner, Jake G, John Mayer (remember the 'kiss' with Perez that got buried?), among others.
Taylor possibly being gay herself was something that came to me over time, just watching the way her life gets played out. There was also a blind item awhile back with people guessing her. Speculative, and could be someone else, but if I can find it I'll link it.
Did Taylor Lautner & Taylor Swift beard for each other?
Totally planned out PR bullshit, her makeup and hair are perfect. If the sex was that great you would stay in bed as long as possible and throw on a hat and sunglasses.
Good point, r24. Her makeup alone looks like it took hours.
And we're all in for weeks of this crap.
God bring back Grimmy.
Look at the zits on his forehead with his hair pulled back and the obvious pancake makeup he has on while casually out with friends.
R24, Taylor Swift's next photocall with Harry will be stepping out with a dishevelled hairdo. They monitor us, but of course you know.
Those shades he wore the first hotel day look like the ones he said he once dropped down the toilet.
This is nothing compared to the Rob Kardashian/Rita Ora Twitter drama of today, unless they can find some way of writing Harry into that one too.
The only thing that throws the gay and beard theories off is her relationship with disgusting straight pig John Mayer.
[quote]Taylor Swift IS a virgin. She only has anal sex!
I remember that storm about Mayer tonguing Perez at a party, that Perez went on about at the time. The internet was like, John Mayer's gay! for weeks.
What an unholy combo.
Think I prefer he and Perez.
The Taylor Lautner connection is definitely a red flag.
I think you mean a red fag, r31.
"The Taylor Lautner connection is definitely a red flag."
Actually, I think you mean a PFLAG
"Taylor possibly being gay herself was something that came to me over time, just watching the way her life gets played out."
But wouldn't she be writing songs like: "She Looked My Way (The Girl In The Orange Depot Apron)" and "Angry Little Muffin Top"
[quote] Her makeup alone looks like it took hours.
This thread literally FEELS infested by the loons who've moved into the Prancing Pony Inn: London Branch on the (endless) threads re: One Direction and some BBC radio host.
[quote]They made sure the "couple" were photographed going into HER hotel at 4 A.M. Harry conspicuously carried and overnight kit and a clean t-shirt.(Maybe he doesn't wear underwear or maybe he doesn't change them.)
Actually, Taylor got home at 4am BY HERSELF and was photographed by all the paps staking out her hotel. Harry arrived an hour LATER, clearly hoping the paps had left, but unfortunately a few stragglers remained, enough to capture all of two seconds of video of him walking in. He was carrying a large bag, not a "kit," which had more than enough room for a full change of clothes and Dopp kit. Finally, the hotel in question is the Bowery Hotel in NYC and has no "back door" of any sort.
Do try to keep your fangurl facts straight, hon.
People actually believe these two are fucking?
Funny thread. This is like all the hot sex Ricky Martin used to have with nubile young female dancers and TV presenters. They broke records, you know.
Wrong, r37, it was the Greenwich Hotel.
R37 To be fair, you're talking about Tuesday night and the person you quoted was talking about Monday.
Gay or straight or something in between, this can't be real.
All of you sound like a bunch of nutcases on this thread.
In fact, you must be nutcases to write what you are writing on this thread.
Such delusions and hackneyed theories and just plain dumb.
[quote]People actually believe these two are fucking?
R37 (angry paid shill) does.
What's going on? Are we permanently banned from here now?!
LG I know! We just had a post from the original maker of the threads and he seemed amiable!
Maybe we need to create a forum at this rate!
what the fuck is going on?
can someone else buy a membership so we can continue? I really feel like we're not finished with discussing this pair!
Guys, I think they're just sick of all the threads ... this happened with the LotR lot didn't it? We may have outstayed our welcome.
R45, is that the person responsible for closing the threads?
Is someone literally monitoring every thread we touch and then closing it.
if so, why?
Yes, because I seriously don't know if I can post on this thread without laughing at the title each time!
Two nights running - I leave you alone for 5 minutes .....Any idea what we are doing wrong?
OR could someone just let us know why and if we have to leave?!
WTF is going on around here?! The title of this thread made me laugh again though. Weren't those fun times?!
Well, we can either make our own forum or move to livejournal or something.
oh dear. well I still would like discussion...is there another forum people want to meet up in that can talk about it?
153, that sounds technical? Do you have those skills?! (I certainly don't!!)
Well, we could try this thread for a while, it seems redundant and there is an advantage that the title is rather misleading...
tumblr? without tagging things I suppose..
Yeah LJ's usually a good option.
Moderator's can also close threads, right? I didn't even know OPs could.
This is the best thread title ever. We should stay here just for the name.
does anyone have a membership or is willing to buy one?
somebody post somewhere to continue quickly before this one is closed too. DS appreciation maybe?
could you give a link as I have no clue where that is?
I could open one on digital Spy in the appreciation section, slightly nutty, but no nuttier than us?
Ughh not tumblr. Too many crazies over there.
I like LJ. Been a long while since I've been over there. But it's good for maintaining privacy.
DS is probably a better shout for a short term solution.
yes open one in digital spy and we can post here for now until we're kicked out...
Yeah, I think LJ would be good for sure, Links but I've never made a community, have you? It can be an anon one too, so not everyone has to make an account.
LJ is good for the non-techies too I think if anon comments are allowed. more private than DS too
Yes, R65, and please post the link and we can decide what to do long-term there.
What is LJ and is it easy to join / post in?
I'm afraid the webmaster must simply have become annoyed with these threads. All the other explanations are nonsensical.
Maybe they've come to see them as the heir to the notorious "Prancing Pony" threads of old (obsessive LOTR shippers), which were banned as well after a while. I'd consider this a very unfair comparison, because those threads were all over the forums, and had a very fanatic tone (at least that's what I've heard - I didn't visit DL much at the time), whereas the Nick/Harry discussion has always restricted itself to one thread at a time, and has (in spite of some "shipping" tendencies) kept a compratively objective tone (or at least not a batshit crazy one.)
But then DL has always been run somewhat arbitrarily. (Discussions of soap operas are banned as well for some reason.)
I was going to suggest continuing the discussion in the general 1D thread (and then in consecutive general threads), and tolerate non-Nick related contributions, because this might avoid giving off the "cultish" vibe the more specific threads seems to have given off.
But now this one has been closed don as well. Apparently the webmaster doesn't want the discussion to continue at all. Rather annoying.
Yes, but LJ comm will take longer to sort out so if we need somewhere everyone can organise that on now, it's best to use DS.
R65 good plan
LJ is livejournal LG and it is very easy to post comments, especially anonymously.
You can't post in DS unless you're a member? I tried to join and it didn't work.
Can we stick here until the LJ thing is sorted?
I just registered on DS as dlpost153, haha.
I say we migrate to LJ.
Well when the LJ is set up and if this thread is closed, will someone ensure they post a link to DS so that I can find it. I'm not ready to drop this discussion!?!
you are in 24 hour moderation if you make an account. I'm L94 once I get approved. is there age restriction? I remember there was a 17 year old regular poster
Thanks 153. Do you have to register or can you just jump on and post like you can here?
I propose someone keeps starting threads on here until it's set up? They haven't for time to track and delete them all, surely?
Created a ds account but it takes 24hrs to post, of course.
To LJ or not to LJ can be discussed in full over there, though, as it takes more logistics organising and linking for people. If R74 is right, we haven't got the time or posts to do that here.
We'd need to go into the appreciation subforum otherwise the ds crowd are nastier thanany on here. It's free to register with DS for most people.
I just wish someone would post and tell us what's going on! I'm glad most of the regular posters are still wanting to conntinue but upsetting we'll probably lose NW3 for good and other potential insiders if we migrate
I have registered at DS, but apparently there is up to 24 hours before the account is valid. Will be DLsmallc, for obvious reasons! Am a member of LJ already if we go there.
Joined DS but won't let me post. Have we actually broken some serious forum rule somewhere? Insane
Ah, okay, R82. That explains why I couldn't post either.
153 you are genius. lJ people - can you post a link and we can try both?
No, R88, you have to be approved. It takes 24hrs and then you can post.
Someone posted a link to the thread on DS on the previous page, for those asking where we're going.
You'll find everyone LG, I may have been highly annoyed by some of your posts in the passed, but you have definitely given the threads something to talk, even if most of us thought it illogical at times!
DS is easy to join, just a waiting period for verification. LJ can't be that hard.
Isis you and I have crossed paths on DS before. lol. I joined august 09 and you in September. I will say no more. Mortifiction.
r15 I think you're a loon. Attractive people don't stop being attractive once you're old. You're just trying to justify that you can't get anything that hot anymore.
Thank you, R98.
Thanks Isis. I think I'll find everyone. Just not so confident about my ability to join! (I failed last time I tried DS)
My involvement may be reduced to reading rather than posting (some may find that a blessing)
R100 that you are going to have to share! Am registered on DS but waiting for authentication. Am posting on LJ now. Shame we will lose so many outsiders - (the fuel to our fire)
Well I now have an LJ account too, I am isis2013, please link the thread over there so I can keep in the loop.
Can I set it up maybe, if nobody else in on the case.
Personally I'd prefer DS to LJ - I fear the latter might become too incestous.
LG and others, You are able to post anonymously on LJ (if it's turned on in the comm) if you guys don't want to register. That might make it more accessible to those who don't want to admit who they are. Haha.
Anywho, I'm pixieviolet over there.
R106 agreed - its either subject to DS torment or isolation
Sitting here a little pink, oh dear, will I ever grow up!
We aren't friend son FB too? I have a whole host of people I met in that group who ended up being friends with on FB friends too!
JJ, if we stay in the appreciation section it should stay relatively civil. It's the main forum which gets vicious. Fun sometimes but vicious.
DS tormentors can easily be dealt with!!!
R109 I don't think so as I had two separate fbs. I deleted one and kept a few people on the personal one. I have met up with a few people from there since. They are great craic especially the amazing Damanda.
We can stay in DS for now and keep lj as a back-up if people prefer that?
I personally don't mind either way.
Can we use LJ till people's authentication comes through?
Still have her as a FB friend, she is amazing, love BB! Shame it is not the same anymore:-(
The thing with DS is they can be quite strict about what you can post. If you post anything potentially libellous the thread would get locked. That's why their blind items thread is mostly in code. Just worth keeping in mind.
Yeah, I think lj will be easier in that sense, Pringle.
Have we been posting anything potentially libellous in our discussions?
Just a suggestion, but could we set up the other forum (so it's ready as a backup) but try and stay on here until we are forced off?
You never know, they might just be having an off day? No point moving until we have to. It's so easy to post and if someone opened a new thread with a more ambiguous title it might work?
If it doesn't we can migrate to the new forum at that point?
Equally though Pringle, their gay celebs thread is completely open and is on it's third part so I don't think it would be a major problem with what has been posted in these threads.
I agree LG I started the LJ account but have no idea how to make it work well and would prefer to stay on here if possible
wish we had someone tech saavy who could make a forum site for us, then we could avoid the time outs on this and not worry about being shut down (here and on DS). LJ is confusing.
No problem, LG.
I would appreciate the no lock-out with DS or LJ, but don't mind staying here it is is comfortable.
I think proboards are easy to run and use and people could be blocked by moderators. the forum could even be closed to new members if need be
If a site is also set up on DS, those of us who aren't already registered can set up accounts for both that and the LJ site.
then, at least, we will be set up to continue our conversation elsewhere if / when forced?
Oh LG, nightmare isn't it. I know have 3 DS thread and 1 LJ thread open on my phone - no idea what I'm doing in any of them and have utterly lost my insane train of thought from earlier.
I just wish someone would say what's wrong. Maybe if we just slow down on here (like maybe I should post less than 100 per day. :)
I love it here!
R127 I'm with you I'm refreshing like 5 tabs. LG did you find us on LJ?
Ideally love to stay here on dl too. I love all the varied opinions, and the anonymity is quite fun. It's been home for many months for me (and over a year for some it seems).
Sorry JJ at R127 - anyway I've got them all bookmarked so if this gets closed - there are options.
R125 I've had a proboard before. I would be willing to make one again if you want. Might take a while though.
You guys are Prancing Ponies v2.0 (or more, dunno). I don't know what you're doing on the DL.
Surely these two idiots have fansites or hate-them-sites where you can do nothing but discuss them all day, every day. What fun!
R128, I'm not sure what I'm looking for? Is there already a discussion going on over there now?
JJ, I don't even understand the tech language? What is a 'proboard' ?! I'm a complete technophobe (mobiles weren't even around in my childhood!)
R131 - Its kind of you to offer. it depends what everyone else thinks. we have DS and LJ as options atm.
R132 - aha believe it or not thanks for the info. Had no idea we'd reached that level. Many of us post elsewhere in DL I assume we have outstayed our welcome - honestly thought we might be in the right place as we mostly discuss UK and US media interpretation of rumoured closet dwellers in the mainstream. I don't think any of us meant to be a pain.
Looking at the General 1D thread which was closed (because we barely posted there before it was so it's somewhat quicker) only one of the previous queried subjects was mentioned by name, so it seems likely to be that one, although I suggest we avoid both to be sure. For those unsure check the last few posts over there. I can't think there can be any other reason after the vast number of threads we have gone through so far.
LG go to the link below and press "leave comment" you can do anon
Yeah, maybe a separate forum is a better idea, R131. I don't really like DS and lj will get confusing when it comes to following different conversations. It's good to have them as back-up though.
It would be lovely if you could set it up, if everyone else thinks it's a good idea too.
agree with 153, I can already see the problems with LJ
LJ is fine if u dont comment with rely and just leave a normal comment
Okay, I'll set it up I can always delete it if it doesn't work. Might take a while, but I'll be as quite as I can. I'm pretty sure I can set up anon posting LG so don't worry. I think we'd all miss you if you didn't come along.
I seriously don't get all this cloak and dagger angst-y shit. Why doesn't one of you just start a blog or a facebook page or whatever?
Why is this such a problem for you? They may be incredibly dull, stupid and fake but Harry Styles and Taylor Swift are both public figures. They are fair game for gossip, innuendo and general internet discussion.
The same holds true for whatever "closeted celebs" you have devoted yourselves to discussing.
R132 - Yes, that's why we are a little puzzled as why three threads have been closed on the subject today. If you have any ideas upon why they would be welcome
As to the cloak and dagger stuff, it is more general confusion than anything else!
C, are you talking about the jackets?
R137, thanks. Have just posted. Already hate it.
Can all agree on just the one place to post? (Although preferably as a back up for here only?)
LG - No! The other.
And no one ACTUALLY say it, please ...
R132 - I know most of us are mystified by our own interest but currently the UK press is absolutely obsessed.. Real mix of posters gay/straight 20s - early forties
a few reasons 1) hiding from the evils of fan tumblr girls who insist on bombarding threads/chat with crap if we go near there
2) Brit boards are a bit more sensitive particularly around things like Dom/sub discussion, graphic chat and drug use (DS in particular)
3) wanted to keep the discussion open to anons whilst avoiding teen girls
As I said its probably one of the the best threads I've been involved with; witty, well researched; occasionally bitchy and I had hoped that while a bit single minded and in the gentler side of DL we fit right in. It appears I was misguided.
The only thing in our defence I would say is that we never invaded any other thread, only had one going at once and viciously defended DL against fangirlis.
C, oh I see! Well they have let this one remain open so maybe we can stay here now? (with a new thread?)
R141, thanks (apologies for being such a tech imbecile)
I think R32 has been kindly trying to explain the thread closure. Prancing Ponies is DL history referring to a group of posters obsessing and taking up residence (a good story actually). Anyway, I think we will probably be closed down altogether soon but suspect our new friend is giving us time to relocate.
I suggest the LJ becomes a permenant last resore backup as it is least likely to ever be closed.
From tomorrow or when we get shown the door from here, I'll be posting in the newly created DS thread as I think that's our best chance to continue the open nature of this discussion. If we get locked out elsewhere or anyone manages to conquer our own forum post on the live journal page and we can head there.
Absolutely gutted -
Goodbye and good riddance, crazy cat ladies.
You have to admit it's strange that the widespread rumours about one of the biggest pop stars in the world being in a long-term gay relationship should be one of the few topics banned from discussion on a gay gossip forum.
Yeah, I prefer the DS option - soon as I'm approved. Question - are we using the old NG and HS thread there, or creating a new one?
So are we:
- Staying here until pushed (gets my vote)
- going to DS and If so where?
- going to LJ (& is it one big thread? Multiple threads or what?)
- going to to the proboard thing? (How will we know when it's ready?)
And how are we going to tell everyone where we are going? I get the impression everyone is already somewhat dispersed?
R151 one of the best things about DL is its arbitrary nature and acerbic wit. If you look at their popular threads it's random, sometimes topical but mostly original. After 50+ threads about a predominantly Brit story based in London I imagine they got bored of us clogging the front page. They don't tend to do in depth detailed discussion in my experience. To understand better this may help.
LG - I think the general feeling at the moment is to wait and see how DS goes once everyone can log on. The link to the thread is a couple of pages back, I imagine the LJ will stay semi active as backup until a decision is made.
LG this is my plan
1. Go to bed - am freaking knackered
2. Post in DS at link below tomorrow and continue until pushed or a PROBoard (whatever that is) appears.
3. Keep LJ bookmarked - if we get pushed from DD or I lose everyone I'll head back there and post.
LG - pretty sure we have a stay of execution though happy to see what happens.
Oh, I've been on DL for many years and know it quite well, JJ - including the hundreds of threads examining every detail of Anderson Cooper's life (in his closet days), which I tended to skip because I'm more interested in the sex life of pretty and internationally famous people. Acerbic enough? ;)
LG, everyone seems to be on LJ at the moment. We'll see how DS goes tomorrow. Night all. Thanks for the links JJ
Thank you for the board! I have no idea what the plan is at the moment, but it's great to have but I will follow whatever the general consensus is.
R162 No problem, just made it quickly in case we ended up with nowhere to go.
R163 I feel like we're the shamed villagers being chased out of town with pitchforks...don't you worry though, we realize we've outstayed our welcome
R151 That is a very good point well made. And by the way if we are going to have to move I am leaving with a bang :) are you suggesting we stay and fight our corner?
LG - I should tell you in case you haven't looked R158 has given you your own section in the PROBoard link. You have been anointed in NH history - that's how much none of us want to lose you and your occasionally bats**t theories x
I've registered, R164 :).
I like the board!!!
Ha ha, thank you R166. I feel truly honoured!
I still think we should try and stay here though. We didn't do anything wrong and shouldn't be forced out. I personally couldn't care less want people in other threads thought of ours!
If a thread entitled "is there really cheese in a cheesecake?" is permitted, ours should be allowed!!
Thank you for explaining your presence here and your difficulties elsewhere.
Are you absolutely sure that your other threads have been closed? Is it possible that they reached 600 posts, which is the DL maximum? I have no interest in boybands so I never dipped into those threads but they seemed to be very busy and on the front page all the time.
If they have been shut down and this one has been left open - the Webmaster has apparently decided that this one is acceptable. It's not as if he/she can't see it. Perhaps he/she would prefer that you keep your discussion to just the one thread on the DL?
In the past, we have had some threads shut down because (allegedly) complaints have been made about them and/or cease and desist letters sent to the webhosting site (or something like that). In general, there are no taboo subjects on the DL. Certainly closeted gay celebrities are always up for comment.
The Prancing Ponies got shut down because they were obnoxious, vile, intrusive, overly frau-ish and somewhat psycho. Also, I believe there was an infestation of fangirls and lots of fighting. If you avoid all of those things, there is no reason why you cannot stay on the DL for years, discussing whatever/whomever you wish to discuss. I could be wrong - sometimes things happen randomly on the DL and there is no explanation.
I've been reading and posting here for about a dozen years with no problems. It might be a good idea for some or more of you to become paying members. Since you have evidently experienced a lot of problems elsewhere on the internet, it may be worth the $18.00. Just a thought.
And to make my contribution to your thread - Harry Styles is, indeed, gay - I have it on very good authority. There's another member of the band who is also gay but I don't remember his name/which one. Taylor Swift is not gay. She is interested in publicity above all else, has no problem bearding and was pissed off that Styles did not hold up his end of their PR arrangement to her satisfaction. Oh, and she may or may not have had an abortion post-Mayer, who claimed to prefer fucking her in the ass. That whole thing was a clusterfuck anyway.
That is the sum total of my knowledge on this subject - I'm sure you already knew all of it.
I totally agree LG and had a good chuckle on your last part but I think they'll keep shutting us down. And at least we can post whenever in the forum.
R170 Thank you for your post, but the older threads had definitely not reached their limits.
Would you be able to explain further how you know Harry and the other member are gay? If not that is fine.
Thanks for the feedback old timer and the gossip!
I'm all for fighting it out and staying on here.
Are you a member and if so, fancy starting a new thread for us?!
R171, and it has 90 odd replies lol!
V possible that Mediapolis was sent cease and desist. If so, there's your proof that the rumors are not intended/damaging/even true.
Thank you, R170, both for your explanation and your information about Harry etc...
Very interesting, oldtimer. Thanks!
Tribeca, could you clarify your thoughts on what you think it means if a cease and desist letter was sent? Am I right in saying you think it means H/N is tosh?
The Freddie Smith thread was closed, too. I guess no more Will/Sonny stuff.
But they stayed mostly on topic about a soap's rather historic gay storyline. Few posts per day.
The H/N thread got hundreds of posts today alone. But, still, it's gay gossip...
TriBeCa, sorry, can you explain?
Sweet Jesus - this is extraordinary. DL legends offering a but of support - I feel honoured. Old timer, TriBeCa thanks for all of this. The John Meyer story I got told in a bar in LA and at the time I was pissed so thought I'd misheard.
We know we sometimes get followed by fangirlis and try to get them to f*** off back to tumblr.
Tribeca - the rumours aren't true if a cease and desist was issued?
r177, you are wrong in thinking that. If anything, I think it proves they are together.
LG - My thought is that if someone representing either N or H sent a cease and desist it is because there are (possibly) true and (possibly) damaging things being written.
I took Tribeca to mean they are 1) not intended, or 2) damaging, or 3)true , but maybe I misunderstood.
Your wording just confused a few people I think. Thanks Tribeca.
Who posted "bloody hell, get back over to DL" , firstly thank you. Secondly cue comic fumbling of phone, knocking over of bin and tripping over a shoe.
Cease and Desist would be sent by a lawyer to ask a company to shut a thread or activity I think . Given the piss poor PR management it seems unlikely HJ would be that quick to react but you never know.
I suspect more likely the poster from here that posted on LJ was on the right track. They thought we'd got a bit obsessive and fangirlish and decided to shut us down thinking we were a bunch of teen girls.
I suggest we buy a few subscriptions, call our threads something way more discrete (maybe London closet, what closet or similar ) and have the PROBoards as back up or for posting anything that could be fangirlish?
Thanks for clarifying TriBeCa. The positioning of your 'not' threw us!
On a separate note, my posts on LJ are now not showing up and I can't read other people's posts? Have they locked the forum? I'm not a member?!
Sorry about the wording. I was also trying to address the theory that the N+H rumors are intentional to cover some other relationship. Obviously, I don't believe this theory holds water.
AHAH sorry JJ that was me, may have been over dramatic.
LG, sorry will try and fix that
How many back up things have I signed up to?! The whole internet must have my email address by now! Can we make a decision and stick to it?! I'm practically having an attack over here.
Oh f this for tonight, I need sleep.
[quote]Who posted "bloody hell, get back over to DL", firstly thank you.
I agree JJ. It won't even let me post in LJ now. Feeling shut out.
There were people on here with subscriptions? Where did they go?
Lots you frickin legend - amazing conveyance of urgency.
Respect to the board creator - a cracking resource I reckon we will use
Respect to old timer and TriBeCa Hater for lettin us know
Respect to the masses who followed a crazy two hour dance across the Internet.
R187 (and possibly TriBeca hater?) I think the old "NH is a cove"r is my favourite crazy-ass theory I've heard. Obviously a 28 year old man screwing a teen popstar would be preferable to an older woman, I mean my Mum would just adore reading about that over her porridge.
Sorry LG I have no idea what went wrong with it, go to the forum! No one is posting on LJ right now
thanks R190 had a little chuckle :P
R189, totally agree. Everyone is everywhere now!
I vote we agree on one main point of posting and one back up?
I would suggest we stay here (with a new, vaguely worded thread) and have LJ as a back up (unlocked so we can all access it)
JJ I really do feel I will have to frame some of your posts...
LG, LJ is working fine for me. I logged out and posted an anon comment perfectly. Everyone is just asleep or at the forum.
I say we stay here for now and go to the board if they kick us out again. LJ seems a bit messy and unorganized.
My vote: post here and PROBoard as backup
Lots, it seems I can post. I just can't read them all? Can only see 63?!
Ok, I'll go with here first, proboard as backup (LJ no longer works for me?)
Do you have to sign up to post on proboard?
Yeah, that is a common lj problem, LG. When you're not logged in not all posts are visible for some reason.
LG, no you don't have to sign up
R200 No you don't, I've made it that guests can post. I'll talk you through it tomorrow.
Well - its been a day of extraordinary amounts of clothing analysis. a tumblr invasion, a discussion of those roles. A bizarre Flack theory. A mankini bet, an attempted ousting, the creation of 4 or more backup plans and a last minute reprieve.
This fricking closet is gonna be the death of us all.
I plan to stay here on DL. I have no desire to go to LJ or DS where the censorship is sure to be rigid and one-sided. I'm so sick of the "Nick and Harry ONLY" bullshit and I'm sure it would only be worse over there.
I have been saying for several threads now, why can't there just be a general 1D discussion where Nick can be discussed too in relation to Harry? It was much more fun back in the old AssofLouis threads, there were so many more points of view. Besides, you can't discuss Nick without discussing Harry, and you can't discuss Harry without discussing 1D. This has been proven over and over in all of the Nick threads. Can't help but wonder if Nick himself has been behind all of this somehow (adjusting tin hat as I type).
Anyways, I will be camping out here on DL. L Girl, I have pitched a tent and collected some firewood... would you mind getting the fire started? I will be in the woods setting traps and collecting berries for breakfast, be back soon...let me know if anyone else plans to camp out (stay on DL) too and I will collect extra.
Seriously, I have the $18 to join and start a new thread, LGirl/others let me know if you want me to start a new thread and I will do it tomorrow (Wednesday). And if so, lets decide on a "safe" title for the thread.
LG, you're such an idiot about gayness it's unbelievable. Why do you feel so entitled to post on this board? Typical lesbian-fearing lady who wants to coo over cute gay boys but can't give actual gay people the space to have a few places on the internet that aren't overrun by straight people.
Wait, let me explain... when I spoke of censorship I was not referring to DataLounge, I was referring to certain posters here who "censor" discussion of anyone else but N/H. Just wanted to make that clear.
MOC, I tried to get the general 1D thread going but no one was interested :(. But yeah I'd definitely love wider discussion. I'm just not sure how many others would be interested.
MOC, happy to get the fire started (if it means we can stay here!!)
If you could open a new thread tmw, many would appreciate it! (think of a boring name that won't attract too much attention though)
R206, I have no problem with gay people?! I have friends, colleagues and family members who are gay? It's a non issue.
I've been on DL for 10 years. Have followed all the Nick/Harry/Louis threads. Prefer to stay here. Haven't paid for a membership in years, but will be happy to so those who want to can stay here. I prefer a general 1D/Breakfast show thread as well. I'm a fan of all of them.
Sorry for the typos, posting quickly.
The thing with me is I have been here the whole time as a Nick fan, I dont give a crap about 1D, so if this is going to turn into a general I really dont want to be around for that.
LG think that's someone trying to make you decamp. Not sure how you can be lesbian fearing when I'm out on this board and we have had lots of interaction.
MOC - I really hope I haven't shut down any non NH chat. If I did it was entirely unintentional and due to overexcited debating analysis. I really hope if I do it again people would pull me up on it. I know I go a bit OTT.
Ive paid a sub and am happy to start a post tomorrow.
JJ the thing with me is I really dont want to talk about the other members of 1D and what im getting from all of this is a lot of people want that.. and I have been here since the first thread
JJ, oh that makes sense! I was a bit taken aback by their accusations!
R214 shed loads of people have joined the forum which is titled N and H so you aren't alone. I'm sure there is room for more than one discussion. Clearly we were all too much for 1 thread anyway :) we'll work it out, I'm sure.
RM, I know you did. The problem is that it is too hard to segment 1d/Harry/Nick because they have become so intertwined. As I said earlier, you can't discuss one without eventually discussing the other(s). So the various threads succeeded in going nowhere and likely pissed off the DL community/admin.
R210, I agree a 1d/nick/BreakfastShow thread would be great. Without restrictions on who/what is discussed. I will give it some time to hear other's input as to whether they would be interested in the thread and suggestions on title name.
I decided to scoot over to the new LJ board they created...lol they are already planning to do away with the anon option and locking the board so no new members can join without approval. LOL what is the fun in that???? I WANT TO GOSSIP ANONYMOUSLY AND UNCENSORED DAMMIT! :) My guess is they will all be back over here within a few days.
From the last few responses it seems there would be a place for a broader discussion thread and a Nick/Harry thread. I don't think people would be happy to have Nick chat in amongst 1D stuff and fair enough.
But I'm just wondering if two new threads would annoy the admins and be shut down again? I suppose we can only try.
Just saw your post MOC. I guess what I was thinking would go in a 1D thread was stuff I've mentioned before. How they're doing on tour, in interviews, their achievements, what they're doing in their spare time etc. That would have a bit of Nick in relation to Harry, but the focus for me would be 1D.
As much as I love following the H/N stuff, I'd like to talk about the others independent of Harry/Nick on occasion.
But you're right that that stuff would probably lead back to H/N as it's so interlinked (plus H/N is juicy gossip wise), so perhaps there's no point in trying to seperate them. Your idea of a 1D/breakfast show thread is good.
Have followed all the Nick/Harry/Louis threads. Prefer to stay here. Haven't paid for a membership in years,
Exactly. These theads were attracting tons of non-DLers to the site. The H/N posters were posting constantly, many of them not DL regulars, with no intention of paying.
The footballers in love threads may be the next to
go but they do discuss homosexuality in football.
I think any Prancing Ponies (as the Harry threads came to.be viewed) or soaps threads are going to be shut down. Sad, as--I pointed out earlier--it is gay gossip.
Sadder still, as the Days thrrads were discussing a real plot on a broadcast network daytime soap, an open attempt to have a gay "supercouple," which had never happened.
"Exactly. These theads were attracting tons of non-DLers to the site. The H/N posters were posting constantly, many of them not DL regulars, with no intention of paying."
I agree, that is what is probably behind the closure of the grimmy/1d threads. And really, I don't blame DL at all. I also enjoy many other threads here and have been planning to join for awhile but never got around to it... until tonight. I think if more of the regular 1d/grimmy posters fork over the measly $18 then maybe the threads would stay open. But even if they don't, I will still be here for the many other threads so whatever.
LGirl, what "interesting post" over here were you referring to on LJ?
Those threads started sucking when everyone was being so bossy about who could be talked about and who couldn't. Who cares.
If anyone is interested I'd like to talk about how badly Louis fucked up his knee the other day, and how it will affect the tour because he's currently hobbling around.
Harry's new? publicist that may or may not work only for him, and now issues denials. Part of a new strategy since Taylor and Villain of the Year Award?
Nick's new show, and if we think it will be successful, also will he be stretched too thin.
And, Tina Daheley, the news reader on the Breakfast show, she and Nick have a great banter. Anyone know anything about her?
She has absolutely terrible taste in men...she and Katy Perry must have very similar DNA in that regard.
I thought she didn't like his uncut cock?
IMHO, the silly fighting between the Larry and Grimmy folks ruined it for everyone.
I don't think the WM was worried about a name being mentioned. Most of the posters seem to be passing allong UK rumors.
This is a US site and most of the gossip alluded to here is still surrounding H & L. No one knows Nick.
One of the funniest things I read recently was how Harry got hit in the cock by a flying shoe and Louis couldn't wait to kiss his boo-boo.
MOC, the post R170.
Has the thread on DS vanished too, it was there last night.
Agree about bossy people dictating what could be talked about, it ruined the whole thing.
Well it looks like many have migrated to the freeforum board. I will just be hanging around here on DL. If anyone wants to discuss here I will be glad to start a thread. But I think it should be a general thread to include harry/1d/nick/brkfst show and keep it to one thread so that we don't upset other DL'ers with numerous scattered threads. As I said before, it's hard to separate them anyways as the discussion topics overlap and you can't discuss one without eventually bringing up the others. Here's my suggestion for a thread if we decide we want one:
Or, we can just take a break from posting on those topics on DL for awhile if that's what people want.
Moc - someone has made one already.
R235 Where? I dont see it. Link please.
Oh jesus, L girl, you really are clueless. It's nice that you have gay friends, now get out of gay space because you're not gay.
R237 could you kindly f*** off hassling L Girl. she's done nawt to you, except maybe float her admittedly crazy shit (but no crazier shit than elsewhere on DL)
No one is hogging anything . Fangirlis and keenos have gone to a forum, 4 regulars have joined and paid. What f***in more do you want, my constantly rotting ovum plucked directly through my stomach wall.
Seriously pissed London lesbian looking to put someone to rights. I have straight friends because I am capable of more than one dimension to my life, you twat. And I'd like somewhere to discuss gay chat with more than one fricking type of person.
Thanks and best regards
Jesus Christ R237. You sound like a bigot from the 1950s. Catch yourself on you complete fuckwit.
Oldtimer 132, come back! I've heard the Taylor Swift/Mayer gossip, too. I have a hard timing believing Harry is 100% gay, I think he hooks up with women, too.
I know there's a Louis insider here who thinks he's straight, but my money is on him for the other gay.
I'd like to know who Nick is shagging, because I don't think it is Harry.
The management team is really pushing the 5 Seconds of Summer boys as the new One Direction. They are opening for them on this current tour.
Thanks JJ and R239. You wouldn't beleive it's 2013?!
MOC, look for his 'show'
Wow, this is still open.
Mayne the secret to keeping a Harry thread safe is to reference an imaginary het romance in the title.
don't believe it - no way was H and TS any more than a PR stunt, that's what TS does, and thats' what H needs , to keep interest from young fanbase going,- thank goodness this thread isn't bossin every one around saying who can and can't post on here, that was just so aggressive and don't want people like that on any forum
I want to have hard sex
I want to have hard sex with her.
Taylor Swift hasn't had sex!! Who's stupid enough to believe that?!?! I'm a big swiftie and she hasn't had sex!! Don't believe that she's had sex, don't be that stupid!!!!
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
