It is split: This part wasn't about "what's on" but about where to find cheese.
Not sure what "extra non-conforming PN advertising" means, but there are a lot of folks who feel Pont Noir is a place to get themselves free advertising and who otherwise play no part in the community so sometimes threads are deleted or split and sometimes posts are edited to remove self advertising. Pont Noir has a moderated forum which is a different experience to many of the forums on France. That will tend to upset those who don't follow the rules and have posts that are edited or deleted. The internet is a big place and there is room for everything; just not here. Here we want pleasant and informative, not angry opinion and advert ridden. That way you have a choice.
