I appear to have been stealth banned by the Daily Mail

Recommended Posts

I have been posting comments on the Daily Mail website for more years than I can remember.

About 3 or 4 weeks ago there was an article on the Daily Mail site about a female SOE operative in WW2 who parachuted into France, acted as an agent against the Nazis, was captured, tortured and ultimately murdered in a Nazi concentration camp.

One of the comments below the article was, IMPO, offensive / anti-semitic. I complained about the comment to the Daily Mail by flagging it up.

Since that time none of my comments have been posted.

I have deleted cookies on my browsers, logged in and out several times, deleted cookies again but no matter what comment I post none of them appear. I appear to have been stealth banned by the Daily Mail. I did a google and usually people receive an email from the Daily Mail saying that they have been banned. I have received no such email. The last email I received from them was that they were investigating my complaint about the above comment.

I have since emailed them asking me why my comments no longer appear but no reply.

I can only assume that the Daily Mail is now censoring commentators on its website whose comments they do not like - a sinister and silent stealth banning. It makes you wonder who at the Daily Mail is making these decisons. As my complaint was about a post which I felt was derogatory to a SOE heroine of WW2 it does make me wonder what on earth is going on at the Daily Mail.

My comment, in response to the derogatory comment about the SOE heroine stating that I found it offensive, has also been deleted. When I log into my profile I can see my posts of over 30 days ago for a moment and then they disappear.

I know that some will think that this is a storm in a teacup. But, to me, I find such things very sinister as, IMPO, free speech and free expression is quietly being censored, eroded and destroyed in the UK.

Anyhow, I thought it worth mentioning.

I get my comments removed almost every time by the Guardian.  I continue to post knowing that they have to employ someone to do that, which runs them that fraction more into the red.

lasted deletion was where I pointed out that the Guardian was supporting a cause that if it was white victims would have been seen as non supportable.  Deleted.

It was a week or so ago. I have not looked since.

There are 559 comments on there so I don't have the time to look for it just now.

It may help in knowing the reasoning. They may have just gone all hpc tos on you and are deleting rather than properly moderating. 

Otoh, they may be viewing you as the next tommy Robinson O.o

Yes, but, re what I posted, I was the one complaining and complaining about a post which I felt was insulting to the memory of a WW2 heroine. You would have to have, IMPO, a very perverse or anti-British mindset if you start banning someone who is effectively standing up to stop the memory of such a woman being abused. But maybe that is the new position of the Daily Mail in 2017?

Me too.  I got over moderated. 

I don't give a fig now. What used to be an excellent paper is now trashy.....too many SJW articles.

I don't read it. They're going bust.

Don't you feel guilty as a white colonial oppressor?o.O To me, it seems you have asked a logical question.

I remember asking a black lady about "the black community". Actually, as she was born in Surrey, the only thing about it she had known was her record collection. And I didn't oppress her. But who wants to read that?

Is there a little irony in a post lambasting the loss of free speech on the internet by being banned for using the censorship button?

Just what I thought! The biter bit?

Maybe they thought he was a Hasbara troll.

That's quite odd really, in that it's usually the other way around i.e. If you'd agreed with the anti-Semitism I would expect the media, at least any mainstream media,

to pull you up on it.

Maybe the Mail is actually unsympathetic to Jewish people?

Who knows in this fucked up world we live in?

I have often read the insightful Daily Mail comments from Swansea and will miss them.

I don't see any reason from the OP that TMT would have banned and I'm going to put this down at the door of commercialisation and cost cutting as we saw occur on ToP.

Comments are welcomed if they're bland Facebook chatter as they give the volume that brings in the advertising revenue without any need for moderation.  If posts become a bit challenging or confrontational then you either:

  • spend time ploughing through and reading the whole thread in order to decide who is in the right and who in the wrong and then delete or ban accordingly
  • or
  • delete the thread and ban the poster making waves

If you've got paid staff on this then the latter is by far the quickest and cheapest method so you do this.

      I can't tell you much about the incident, there is a news blackout, the French police have blocked virtually all information - forums, chat, images, videos. Videos? Yes four young men, of African origin decided to gang rape a 19 year old outside a Toulouse Discotheque. It is apparently pretty common and if a complaint is made (the victim was possibly drugged with Rohypnol, or drunk?) it gets the usual Gallic shrug from "Le Plod". According to local papers there is an epidemic of rape, and gang rape in Toulouse of both adults and under aged girls. Crimes are frequently committed at the end of the week. Of course the press and police are very cagey about the identity of the aggressors - well unless it is Mr Dupont, the catholic priest or Mr Gonthier the local car mechanic - then you get the full details of their lives. A case in point is a gang rape that occurred in October 2017, we learn that one of the aggressors was a security guard for the Carcassonne town hall ([probably another town to put on your "no visit" list) and it is only from round about sources we discover he is a M. Zouhair with 9 convictions against him for sexual assault. Wow, and the town hall took him on as a guard?
      So what of this latest incident? This time some spectators thought it was a good idea to film it and post the video online. So Le Plod has had to take action - to take down the video and images of the rapists.

      Interesting bit of investigative journalism from the beeb: 
      https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-45324622
      Over three decades in the late 20th century, there was a rise in serial homicides in North America. One historian asks whether the ravages of World War Two were a factor. 
      Peter Vronsky's fascination with serial killers began when, at 23, he bumped into one in a lift. 
      It was 1979, and the Canadian historian was in New York City for work. 
      He was impatiently waiting for the lift, which was stalled on the fourth floor of the seedy Travel Inn Motor Hotel, and shot a dirty look at the man who bumped his shoulder as he left the elevator that had finally arrived in the lobby. 
      "He kind of just saw through me," says Vronsky. "He looked like a guy in a daze. It's as if I wasn't there." 
      The next morning, Vronsky read about an horrific double murder and mutilationthat had taken place in the hotel the previous day. 
      It was a year later, seeing newspaper coverage on the arrest and trial of Richard Cottingham, that he finally realised that the "Butcher of Times Square" and the man in the lift were one and the same. 
      It made him wonder: "Where did these monsters come from? What are these things?"
