    Mail Online – the most read online newspaper in the world

    WHAT??? Oh god we are truly doomed if that dirty rag full of hate, racism and just plain rubbish is actually the most read newspaper. I'm hoping that is just another lie from the Hatemail

      It's mostly Guardian readers trolling the comments

      I need some more statistics.

      I'd like to know how many of the hits are your typical daily mail readers vs people peering at the bile and knowing it's codshite vs people visiting to see what the screeching chimps are saying in the comments.

    For those missing there Daily Mail news fix, I'll sum it up for you:

    Everything causes cancer.

    People from Essex are publicity whores.

    Everything causes cancer.

    Carry on and keep buying things that cause cancer.

      That may be the newspaper (in fact, more likely the Daily Express which apes the Mail), but Mail Online is a very different beast... Half-naked celebs on every page, anyone?

        Everything causes cancer ....

        "Mail Online is a very different beast"

        Are you sure?

      You forgot:

      - Illegral immigrant asylum seeking benefit fraudsters (who all live in castles and palaces while driving around in Aston Martins) also cause cancer

      Don't forget

      Pictures of some slim, in favour bint and an article about how wonderful she looks having lost weight after the birth

      Pictures of some equally slim, out favour bint and an artilce about how awful she looks having piled on the pounds.

      Pictures of some skinny, out of favour bint and an article about her battle with anorexia (which she denies), and why do poor young girls feel the need to diet etc.

      Heavily photoshopped pictures to support the above.

      No irony or responsibility whatsoever.

      You missed two:

      Everything prevents cancer ( ).

      Doom, doom, doom and gloom.

      PS: Sorry, thought of another one: Misery.

      You forgot:

      Everything causing cancer will cause house prices to rise/fall

    no real loss

    As all the Mail seems to peddle is middle class angst about nothing.

  6. Smallbrainfield

    Perhaps someone at the Mail has finally seen themselves for what they are

    and through wracking sobs of self-loathing nuked the website for the good of humanity.

    Where will readers of the 'bigoted comic' go for today's dose of hate and fear?

    It being the Mail, maybe someone decided internal links give you cancer

    was it welfare scrounging illegal immigrants and asylum seekers who took down the site? or can we blame the evil eu? or both?

    did the outage cause cancer?

    what was the impact on house prices of the daily heil's web site failing?

    paris icon because there has to be a paris angle to this story.

    The ultimate Hate and Fear Apoplexy headline

    Peadophiles Cause Cancer!

    But the immortal rule remains, if the DM headline is a question, the answer is ALWAYS no.
