Wise words Monty.

Haven't got banned yet - must try harder.
The Policia Judiciaria said in a statement: "We regret the baseless intervention of the spokesman above all at a moment when significant moves were being made in the investigation."

Chin up - here's how to get yourself back on.

1) Go to http://www.freeproxy.ca/

2) Type http://forums.mirror.co.uk/ into the "browse anonymously" box

3) Double-click on one of the free proxy server sites listed below (proxicate.net is a good one)

4) You're in. Heck, get yourself a new hotmail account or similar and you can even re-register as a new user!


Brilliant :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: that has cheered me up :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I hate it when they win!!!!!! :twisted: :twisted: :!:

Anyway - this afternoon - I phoned the mirror....

I said I wanted to speak to someone above admin in the forums - and was eventually put onto the deputy [??]

He said that they are having 'problems' with the forums, and agreed that it is wrong to have a mod posting anonomously - and it is wrong to have political bullying and it is wrong to prevent discussion of the news... He also agreed that it is illegal that we can't view the public uk nespaper forums

I told him I would rather not cause trouble by contacting the Press Council and Internet watch org...

He told me to email him...
I said I am fed-up with emailing their staff....

He said when it is all written down in front of him he can and will sort it out...

I do not like to be humoured - at all!!!!

..and I thought that he could have been more helpful...

So - just so I know - I phoned the Internet watch thingy - but they only do child porn and racism...nothing else at all... they do not do 'justice' or 'fairness' or 'freedom of speech' - the internet is obviously not about these things to the authorities :(

Next - I phoned the Press Complaints Commission - who told me that they only cover the print and the on-line editions - they do not cover the forums - because the papers themselves are supposed to uphold the same standars in their own forums.... - so some weaseling with the rules there then...!!! :x

They also told me that The Press Complaints Commission is not a quango or a govt body of any sort - but is an industry funded watchdog - ie - the press all chips in to pay for the PCC's running costs!!! - so no impartiality there then..[when I said this - I was told that it was impartial because the press all chip into another group/fund who pass all of the loverly cash over to the PCC]...

This is what is called 'impartial funding' legally - stupid idiot me!!!! :roll: :roll: :roll: :x :cry: :!:

SO - the lady was as upset as me tbh at the injustice for normal people - and when I said it looks as if I am going to ask the Tories for help over this she agreed...

But as I said to her - this makes the whole thing doubly wrong - it is very wrong to allow any political party to gain out of our suppressions :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :!:

PS

Just to add that I will email first now....and hopefully it will be sorted out then....

not that I expect most people to be rushing back to a place that does not uphold it's own standars that it has been trusted to do :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :!:

It is the principle of how we have all been treated - it is too bad to let lie!!!!

I got my first and final warning for reposting Paul Torremans letter.
If nothing of interest lasts more than a few minutes I shall abandon the MF.
If they lose revenue thats all to the good but I do hope someone challenges them legally. Withdrawing peoples right to view as well as dictating the subject matter is incredible for a national newspaper. I wish Paul Foot was around.

Hello, I keep posting on the M.F only on threads related with either Madeleine or Editorial intelligence, or the low frequentation of the forum after the ban. I have just posted on an old thread about Editorial intelligence ( 54 someone... /blackwatch). Challenged by a new "pro" avatar called Mullar .My last answer war cautious but it was obvious he wanted an argument by saying that my post was ridiculous. Despite the fact I refused to argument further, he will probably carrying on, in the hope that this very interesting and successfull thread is deleted. Old tactic. In my opinion, I will be banned soon.

I can't resist : here is the answer of this Mr Mullard (thread 54yearolddad):
"The truth is you've equated the loss of a little girl ( and presumabbly the loss of a scurrilous forum) to corruption in the upper echelons of British government and the rich.
Stop being so b****y silly."

"Ludicrious, scurrilous..." : it's fantastic the number of new words I have learned on this forum !
For a foreigner, I assume it is not correct, according to Mr Mullard (hint), to criticize British governemnt ( the rich are international) .
1) The foreigners who want to criticize our ridiculous government are welcome .
2) My grand-children will be most probably scottish/French citizens, so I have to keep an eye to the country they will board on.

Mr Mullard will never have an answer from me.

Very surprising on the M.F today, wednesday: there is a thread critizising the McCann, with 2 pages( first posted at 11.45) ! Not deleted!: " Times journalists speak against..." It's about a Time's article (women.timesonline) where mums (Mumsnet) complain about the Madeleine adverts in cinemas and the use of "snatched" in this advert. Apparently successfullly, because, after complains, the advert was suppressed.

So the subject is not tabou anymore on the M.F or there are no Mods today?

a false sense of security methinks! Maybe the tactic after the MF got slated on the Internet per sa -it's licking those wounds and pretending "free speech" is back on the agenda.Personally the MF was an amateur forum this is far more superior in content and knowledge. "horses for courses" I suppose one could say. :blackeye:
