I just had a txt from a friend of mine saying that John Deacon has died. Does anyone know whether this is true?

Check this 'news' in General forum. It was posted there, but removed recently.

There was a guy called Flash00 who posted a fake "news" claiming that John Deacon just died of cancer. This "news" article even appeared on the QZ main page where notice board articles are randomly displayed. A quick net search proved that this was nothing but a sick joke and the guy was deleted - along with the other annoying user accounts he had: Sue Lurex and Sue Ann Taylor Mercury.

I apologise to everybody who felt rightfully offended by this idiot. Unfortunately, it's impossible to avoid such kind of abuse of membership privilege.

Edit: this thread is also displayed on the main page, probably giving more reason for false rumours. It would be cool if you could change the title of your thread, Rocky.


I do not want any google ads here.

Barb..if it's ok, let me offer some help to Rocky.

Rocky, please go back to your very first post in this thread. Go into ''edit''. When you are in edit, you can not only edit/change what say in the post...but you can also change/edit the TITLE.

Hope this helps you.

And very happy to hear Deaky is ok! :)

thank you for that. I went back and did just that so that should be sorted now. When I went back to the notice board, it still said the same title though.

No, that's okay. Just reload your page.

Fear not...

John is alive and well and this was all a outrageous internet prank.

Some people have a sick sense of humour me thinks.....
