Just posting to warn everyone that on that on Thursday August 24th a rap concert will be taking place at Boardwalk Hall. I know a lot of you might be coming down early for the fight this weekend. Here is why the area need to be avoided. As some of you may have read there was a shooting on the Jersey Turnpike involving a rapper on Friday. Here are articles that prove my point. If you have to go down this weekend use extreme caution.

Why? I'm providing a public service. If you want the added risk, fine.

It's hard to make a case for non-bias, RossH. I think it would be fair to say that any such concerts do add an element of risk, but your failure to provide a similar service for any other events which also increase the risk, some of which are arguably higher, has cast a pall on this action. While I can see the service aspect of what you're providing, the fact that you only provide it for rap and hip-hop based ventures strikes as prejudicial, and was the reasoning behind BBB's previous lockage.

Per precedence, this too shall be locked.

(For those of you playing fantasy, this is my first lock)
