Green Infidel just sent us this depressing but predictable incident involving the comments section of the Grauniad:
Earlier today I was surfing on The Guardian’s website. I thought you might be interested in some aspects of how the newspaper operates — namely its moderators… Seems a simple 2-word comment — “Mohammed did” — is now too much for them to accept.
I caught the comments below this morning. Fortunately, because a few minutes later they were gone… Unfortunately in my rush, I forgot to do a print-screen, however I copied the text, to store a record of what is “not acceptable” on The Guardian website.

I’ve reported this. I hope it gets moderated.
The result? Both comments nowhere to be seen… Saying “Mohammed did” — in reference to his appetite for sex with children (presumably Aisha) — is now out-of-bounds at The Guardian.
Green Infidel has made a short blog post about this: “Mohammed did” — 2 words too much for the Guardian.
