Well it would seem that the saying "if you don't have something to say, don't say anything at all" has come to pass

I read your comment and did not find it either abusive or threatening. Surely if as they suggested, they are standing by his "honestly-held opinion"; the article would have remained on the site and only the comments deemed unacceptable removed. This is all very strange.

I read your comment as well, i think it was the last one posted. There was nothing at all threatening or abusive about it...

It is very strange,,,

There had been no threatening posts towards the inept Mr Macbeth when I went to bed (rather late) last night; only the comments about his pathetic review plus the odd 1 or 2 from ali's trolls. What on earth did you do OL? Bad boy

Like Old Loonie said the whole article has now disappeared.Hardly sounds like a paper "standing by the honestly held opinion of our journalist" does it? They could have easily blocked all comments and edited out the "journalist's" name if they had wanted to do that.I think the editor or someone else high up has actually read the piece and came to the same conclusion as us.I think Mr MacBeth has probably received the journalistic version of the dreaded football club chairman's vote of confidence.

I agree Michele, I look at it late last night and the only comment I noticed that was a bit below the belt, was a derogatory comment about the restaurant mentioned in his article.

I might end up with an email as well

I've been to the Oxford O2 3 times. Walked past the Rice Box on all occasions, can hardly call it a restaurant though. Quite fancied a nosh up there but not now, the after effects aren't worth it!

Something's rotten in the state of Denmark, to quote a certain Mr Shakespeare see what I did there?
