I'm definitely an outsider in this discussion, but in my opinion, so long as there is model discussion here, there will be fan talk unless the mod staff enacts a massive crackdown on fan talk with significant punishments; like no posting privileges in Supporting Cast for a certain amount of time; to force people to not do it to begin with. Such an idea is obviously ludicrous though and it would likely drive away many members as well as diminish the effectiveness of the model threads because it's the fans who maintain the model threads and if they aren't there, no one will keep the model threads up to date. Thus, I think that the only realistic option is just stiff moderation and deletion of argumentative posts and the "OMG Natasha!!!!!!!" posts; basically just continuing the current strategy I suppose.
I also would like to mention some things in relation to this statement:

Okay. That is all good and so forth, but to say that this place is ONLY for serious business is simply not realistic. This place is also for fashion and model fans too, whether management likes it or not. The two groups together are what makes this site work the way it does. If there was nothing but fan discussion, this place would be just another in the massive amount of fan forums out on the Net, and with nothing but serious business type stuff, this place would be a very small site with a very small user base, the archive facet of the site would be basically non-existent, and no one would even know the site exists. The two groups together are what make TFS the powerhouse site that it is and allow it to fulfill it's purpose. The fan aspect maintains the archive portion of the site and keeps the discussion flowing and lively, while the professional/
aspect of it keeps everything organized and useful and gives the site credibility. The two parts are interconnected and inseparable. The staff should understand this and try to make things work for both sides, because without one of either of the two parts, this place is essentially nothing.
Just say no to Terry Richardson.
