Discussion forum censorship on The Daily Mail?

422 comments  Add a comment

I'm getting a little fed up with the Daily Mail website.  This is something that happens to me quite a lot and I believe it also happens on other discussion forums out there.  When I see an article that is of interest to me I'll often want to add a comment, but on some of the stories they are censored even though what I'm saying is a valid point.  Why does this happen?

One story appeared recently saying that there is research out saying chest x-rays are not always successful in diagnosing early stage lung cancer and that some patients may need to go back for further x-rays.

Did my comment on the forum get published?

Someone commented that this is yet more evidence that the NHS was a complete failure.  As an x-ray student I thought I'd reply and put the message straight.

I said that this is a piece of research which is pointing out that our current methods of diagnosing lung cancer are not always successful and should be taken on board so we can improve best practice.  Did my comment on the forum get published?  No, of course it didn't!

Normal Xray of chest. Heart in the centre. Personally, I feel that there is far too much censorship today and that otherwise valid, sensible and relevant points of view are being ignored.

I read a while back on The Daily Mail says that 'education standards are falling.'  Well, if they are going to encourage incorrect viewpoints on their website and not publish anything from anyone who looks like they know what they're talking about, I'm not surprised that people are lacking in the grey cells department!

Daily Mail Uk is censoring my comments ie.opinions for no apparent reason. What method do they use when "moderating" is it an algorithm or some liberal leftie person. Does any know?

DM isn't moderating comments they're straight up censoring middle of the road conservative opinion. I made a harmless remark about black crime statistics (FBI published) and can no longer post.

It happens to me all the time. Either comments don't appear at all or you post something and someone replies and then you aren't able to reply. Sometimes comments appear hours later. It could at least appear with a flag saying awaiting moderation. I don't know whether their website technology is really poor or whether they are censoring. Perhaps a combination of both.

It happens to me all the time. I'm what the DM calls a "Climate Change Denier" (in reality I just think most of what's happening is natural and weather isn't getting more extreme). Many comments listing evidence end up in the DM's Room 101.

There's something odd about the Mails story about Katie Price being assaulted in her home at 1.30 a.m watching television. They report a 35 year old male has been arrested. Wouldn't that be her boyfriend then or did someone break in and hit her. Anyway, the Mail is not allowing any comments on this story or on the story about her appearance on Masterchef. Strange. I reckon the real reason she's in hospital is because her latest plastic surgery has gone wrong and they've just made this attack up to spare her blushes.

The Daily Chicken is at it again. They have a story about Taliban fighters going door to door forcing young girls to marry them and to be sex slaves. Posted a reasonable comment and, you guessed it, disallowed. All they ever do is protect the wrong doers. Any story about BAME criminals is moderated.

I'm sure the Mail has it in for me. I would say almost 75% of my comments are not published and I've seen worse than mine get through the moderators. Even stories that say comments not moderated don't get published. Nothing I say is offensive, just common sense truth, but it seems if you don't agree with their narrative that day you're not allowed a comment.

I am commenting at the moment about how the gov seems to be intent on destroying the airline industry disguising it as trying to prevent covid but in fact it is to suit their green agenda. My comments don't get published.

Comments on Daily Mail are not moderated they are censored. Boycott the limey bastards that were thrown out of here two hundred years ago, but they are back since 1913, through the illegal Federal Reserve System, which through fiat currency controls the entire world nation with the exceptions of Syria, Iran, and North Korea.

Notice the Daily Mail didn't run the story about XR dumping manure outside their offices.

Banned twice now for an unknown comment. Pretty much all of my comments just highlights establishment corruption and the erosion of rights & freedoms... yet this isn't allowed, apparently?

Story in the Mail talking about Turkey leaving the Istanbul convention on violence against women. Lots of commentors were basically critizing and insulting Turkey for this without researching or looking into the reasons behind it. I attempted to post a comment stating that many countries in the EU, including the UK, have not signed up to this convention or ratified it. Turkey was bringing in it's own new strict legislation to fight violence against women. Did the Mail post my comment? Not a chance! It would've shone a light on their massive hypocrisy and racist agenda
