Official Madeleine McCann website 'barraged with hate' by online trolls

THE official website set up to help find Madeleine McCann has been "barraged with hate".

By Jerry Lawton / Published 5th October 2017

The digital coordinator of the site – a close friend of the missing youngster's parents Kate and Gerry – has reported the abuse to US investigators probing "hate speech on Facebook".
The move comes after Brit police were granted an extra £154,000 by the Home Office to continue their search for Madeleine who vanished from her family's holiday apartment in Portugal in 2007 aged three.

The Metropolitan Police's Operation Grange inquiry has cost taxpayers £12million since it was launched six years ago.

The decision to continue the search for at least another six months sparked widespread cricitism on social media.

The Official Find Madeleine Campaign Facebook page now includes a link to an investigation by US news website ProPublica into trolling.

The McCanns' coordinator wrote: "We've been barraged with hate via Facebook and are sure others have too.

"Help ProPublica investigate hate speech on Facebook.''

Opinions on "leaving children alone" have already been banned from the site.

Madeleine vanished from the apartment while her parents dined with pals in a nearby tapas bar.

Visitors to the webpage were warned: "This is not a place for you to post your negative opinions about the McCann family.

"We are not a debate page nor a place to analyse the investigation.

"This is a support and information page for Madeleine’s family and the Official Find Madeleine Campaign (findmadeleine.com).'

The page urged visitors 'let’s keep the page positive', adding: "PLEASE do not feed trolls. Trolls feed on havoc and causing chaos.

"If we do not feed them, they will starve for attention and hopefully spread their hate someplace else.

"Do not ask questions about the investigation.''

Having never heard of this outfit, I googled "ProPublica" and find that it is an "independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism with moral force". It also claim to "shining a light on abuse of power".

It seems to me this outfit should be looking into the McCanns' behaviour, who consider trolls to be anyone who disagrees with their story of what happened to Madeleine.

Well interested, it is the modern way, any dissenting voice must be silenced. it is not only happening in this case but has become the norm with anything. Open your mouth and you are guilty of something. The thought police have taken over, it's George Orwell's 1984, only it has come 33 years later.

The thing is, if, as they say they "produce investigative journalism with moral force" as well as "shining a light on abuse of power", they should focus all that on investigating the "disappearance" of Madeleine McCann instead of concentrating on the dissenting voices who refuse to accept the McCanns' version of what happened to her.
