No more discussions about Madeleine McCann in The Mirror forum

"Important notice to all users of mirror.co.uk forums"
"Sadly, due to persistent and serious abuses, we will no longer be hosting discussions regarding Madeleine McCann on this website. We do not take this action lightly, believing this website should be a place for free and frank discussion across the broadest possible range of subjects. But the level of debate on the Maddy forums has gone way beyond what we consider acceptable, with several recent incidents of extremely abusive postings, both against fellow users and the McCanns. We will not tolerate this kind of behaviour from a small handful of malign voices and have taken the unprecedented decision to block all further discussion on the McCanns. We remind all users of our guidelines for mirror.co.uk, which can be found here: http://www.mirror.co.uk/forums Any further abuse of the spirit of this decision will result in users being immediately banned from our website. Mirror.co.uk is a family website. We want to encourage debate, even argument, across our forums. We are confident this decision will be understood and welcomed by the vast majority of our right-minded users."

Cowards!

I think it is the time to call stile of governing in UK - a regime.

A small victory for the illegitimate astroturfing wreckers which is as nothing compared to the cataclysmic defeat of at least two vile, vile people losing their freedom for a very long and justly deserved time.

Shocking freedom of speech is dead in our country. The press are meant to guard these freedoms not control them.

From Holland. I never thought this could happen, in the free west. Oké, remove rubbisch post, but it's a shame tot put a whole topic on the Mirror-forum down for posters who are only looking for the truth. Is this New Labour? No, it's at least 50 years back in time! :( (sorry, my english is bad, I know)

Justice for Madeleine

Disappointed Paulo that you didn't publish my comment about the closure of The Mirror Forum. Seems like freedom of speech has been banned in Portugal as well. What do you think? Come on now, you've changed your mind before!
