a) been following the McCann story
b) don't speak German
and if you have been following the McCann story on-line you cannot help but have noticed what was going on over at the Daily Mirror forums. The Mirror site included a series of threads on the McCanns which morphed into a seething of hotbed of paranoia and theorising which frequently threw up some genuine nuggets of subversive information about how the mainstream media are managed and the many curious connections between politicians and professonal media-manipulators
The fact that a mainstream newspaper allowed these threads to continue was itself a cause for a whole clutch of theories - many of which focused on the possibility that some harvesting of the personal details of the participants was taking place
Conspiraloons and shills slugged it out on those threads for month after month, until a few days ago when the Mirror finally memory-holed the McCann threads.
As this happened shortly after Clarence Mitchell identified Frank Zappa as a possible abduction suspect and contributors to the threads had started making personal connections between the person who claims to have seen Zappa and the McCanns it is possible that there is some causal relationship
Anyway, attempts to resurrect the insane magic that was the Mirror McCann forum are underway here and here - the second seems to be the more successful so far (thx to C. for the links)
