They are reporting the Jeffrey Swatting incidents.

They must have had that article on the stocks for some time.

SnottyHayfeverNose Mon 09-May-16 10:45:23

Are they saying that a group of Men used some teen boys?

That was years ago wasn't it?

It was last August.

Yes it was last year. I haven't read the article this was copied from. I wonder why the mumsnetter spoke about it all this time later?

I thought it was all covered by the press at the time but it sounds like they are talking about it now being in an article in The new Statesman.

She wrote a freelance article for The New Statesman. It makes sense in the context of that edition of that magazine, but the DM just looks like it's having a short news day.

Hopefully it won't get many clicks and they'll start writing about other forums instead...

The New Statesman website won't let me look at their site because of my adblocker.

The NS article seems to be more about doxxing than anything else.

"Are you aware that you are a headline article in the DM?"

So what's new? I read threads on here on a regular basis thinking 'I bet that'll be in the national press over the next few days'.

I started a thread about this earlier as I hadn't seen this!

NaffOffMartha Mon 09-May-16 16:03:42

Ditto Fru. Fairly often I don't comment on certain threads any more because it's obvious that they were either started by a journo, or are going to be screenshotted and published by one.

Quite, NaffOff!
