To be angry not to have featured in the daily mail?

So I have name changed since writing on the thread but today the DM have written a story about the woman who received a request for more money from a couple whose wedding she attended. Admittedly I did question on the thread what the woman would think when she saw it in the daily mail but I feel like everyone else on here is getting their fifteen minute and the bastards at the DM are ignoring my hilarious and insightful posts. Every bloody time. Also hoping not to get in trouble as I suppose this is a taat sigh

Have you got a 'Daily Mail ignored my remarks about Daily Mail' Sad Face prepared in case they pick up this thread?

I Hope so.

Ha ha, I swing between relief that I haven't and rage that I haven't. YABNU

Me too, they even ignored Smurfgate sad

Is there any way you can blame immigrants, single mothers or council housing for your failure to be noticed?

So was there a story about that thread? Oh FFS.
I hope someone in the comments has suggested she stop the cheque.

I think the DM need to inform us of the criteria they use for:

1. Thread selection
2. Poster comment selection

After all as MN seem to provide a decent percentage of their journalistic output we should be included in the process.

Stopping the cheque was mentioned. I would link but I'm furious with them. My DM sad face is ready and I keep one cupboard permanently empty ready to leave open behind me should they ever want to pop round and photograph me. And yes, I will indeed blame people on benefits for my lack of fame, bloody scrounges nicking all my potential headlines angry

My new username might be scuppering my chances this time

SpuriouserAndSpuriouser Tue 10-May-16 18:27:02

No way, they actually wrote an article about that thread?!

I took the fall and looked it up: www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3582662/Bride-groom-email-guest-say-wedding-gift-wasn-t-generous-enough.html

I see the 'journalist' is called Unity Blott!! Please tell me that isn't a real name.

JeffFromTheDailyMail Tue 10-May-16 18:34:28

Maybe that's her mn name. surely there must be some kind of boss at the DM who looks at these articles and sends them back for not being real journalism? I could do a better job and hope to feature shortly

WriteforFun1 Tue 10-May-16 18:35:17

Unity Blott must be a pen name, surely? (I don't mean a manufactured pen, I mean a made up name to write under!!) grin

JeffFromTheDailyMail Tue 10-May-16 18:35:32

Hec I cannot believe they are so desperate they would do that, it's clear the poor woman was grieving and looking for anonymous support, it's disgusting

WriteforFun1 Tue 10-May-16 18:36:02

as for "real journalism" I doubt the DF care. Or most papers for that matter. They print anything that they can find. It's saved them money, just trawling online for a good story.

NewYearSameMe Tue 10-May-16 18:41:50

I need a new name, it's May already and I'm still using my New Year's name change. UnityBlott has a certain ring to it. wink

Cutecat78 Tue 10-May-16 18:42:22

UnityBlott has already been taken as a username here....

You need to make your comments more racist.

Cutecat78 Tue 10-May-16 18:44:30

Not posted though..

HermioneWeasley Tue 10-May-16 18:46:22

That reminds me - need to change my user name to "HermioneThinksTheMailAreCunts"

So any time someone posts on mn they risk it being reproduced in the Daily Fail shock leaving them open to being exposed in rl for asking advice hmm?
