      Removed News Item

      Earlier on today we posted a news item on the basis that Digital Spy had allowed discussion on the subject.

      It would now appear that this was a cruel hoax and we have absolutely no idea if the story was true or not.

      We do have a screenshot of the text posted under the member's username that had had the bad news posted about today. However, that doesn't mean that it is true or not, or indeed if it is a hoax or not.

      Rather than keep everyone in the dark, we have removed the original thread and made this thread to attempt to explain what has happened to the original thread.

      One thing that has happened tonight, a person using that member's forum username and password has tonight logged onto SkyUser, with the IP resolving to pperso.free.fr

      Re: Removed News Item

      I have been following the events as they unfold (in true Sky Breraking News style) and it has been interesting to say the least.

      Most of what was posted on digispy has since been removed, I would be careful before judging.

      Whilst it certainly seems that the original report is not true, it is still unclear as to whether the forum members account was hacked. It is also unclear as to whether the member is ill or not.

      The forum member could very well have had their account hacked and could be seriously ill (as previous posts over recent months may have suggested).

      One thing for sure is that we cannot trust anything in relation to this at this stage (and we will probably never know what has actually gone on).

      I won't bother to post the chain of events and the 'proof' etc as it is all just opinion and not proven fact.

      last nights antics (particulary on digispy) reminded me of good old Chegwin Moutain

      I want to play at being a silly person

      There must be a few of us around who remember those days fondly.

      It's just a shame all the images were lost that we posted, it made it all the more funnier.

      It would appear that this was definitely a hoax, and thankfully, Keiran is in fact alive and well.
