Due to threats of legal action directed at boards.ie, a not-for-profit website that hosts the largest online discussion forum in Ireland and has over 60,000 users, the administration of boards.ie have judged it safest to completely censor all references to MCD and [their concerts].
We appreciate that this is a lot of information and it will be difficult for all 60,000 of you to avoid making reference to any of the following in any way, shape or form. However, please see it from our point of view.
MCD have said they have no interest in censoring our discussion of anything they are involved in apart from discussions of the negative rumours regarding the ****** Festival.
Unfortunately, as the administrators of boards.ie, we cannot guarantee that discussions involving MCD in any way will not prompt a user to post something regarding the negative rumours. As our moderators are not full-time, paid staff members, we cannot guarantee that we can catch such references immediately to delete them.
Subsequently, we feel it is more sensible to veto all discussion of MCD and related bands, events, venues, dates, festivals, concert dates, ticket sales, competitions and promotions, lest MCD be defamed during these discussions.
