MP59 of the line 4 are the hottest trains in the network.

Is it because the MP 59s are such old trains?

I'm a bit confused about the process of installing the platform screen doors. The entire platform isn't fitted with the doors overnight - it's done in stages. Before the work is completed, what happens? Are the doors kept closed, preventing people from boarding particular carriages? Are they left open all day? Or do the doors that have been fitted operate as designed even when the entire platform hasn't been fitted with them yet?

This might seem like a bit of a naïve question but the Subway in my city, Glasgow, will have platform screen doors fitted in the next few years and I'm curious to know what to expect.

Doors are working, even if the entire platform hasn't been fitted with them.
To kept doors closed until the complete installation is not possible in a busy subway network like Paris and we can clearly see in the picture that doors are closed when there is not train.

I've recently discovered a funny satyre about the Paris metro.

For those not speaking French, here's the pitch:
Super line 1 and Super line 14 make everything they can to serve people in making them reach their office each morning. Unfortunately, the evil RER B wants to block everyone because he's just evil.

That's funny for locals because line 1 and 14 are known in Paris to be very efficient whereas the RER B is a mess (it's much better than RER D for me but whatever, I haven't made the movie).

I was reading on the Symbioz forums about the MP 05 (Line 1). If I read things correctly, is appears that a few trains have already been vandalized in the sense that there are scratchiti on windows, etc. Also passengers making a mess on the seats with food, etc.

That is correct, when I was in Paris last tuesday I noticed scratched windows on the MP05 trains. I didn't see people eating on them though.

It doesn't make any difference.
Bel-Air is a quite wealthy area.

Wow, not good. Especially for such new trains.

I can only hope they do not become the "new" MP 59s.

I would assume that these trains like almost all new public transport vehicles in area's where this kind of thing happens has replaceable film on the windows. So yep whilst it doesn't look good it is easily fixed once it gets too bad.

Actually, I think the elevated stretch of the line 6, in the south of Paris, is quite charming. I don't believe it depreciate the areas where it passes at all.
