    Thanks to @Jburns43 and @gavreilly
    Another online forum that I drop into from time to time was discussing the Sunday World story, but it was then pulled.

    I guess NAMA will foreclose and we will have loads of highly lucrative court cases. Double gins all around

    Another few headlines:

    in the st this week: a plan to sell airports and how PR chief has claimed Van Morrison lied to him


    also: Brian Hayes says stalled decentralisation should be scrapped and Phil Hogan to issue tender for destruction of evoting machines

    <Edit CF - Story inaccurate>

    Sindo: Noonan says Nyberg report has found herd mentality led to bank disaster. Talk of a dangerous consensus. Only a snippet of report.

    Now, would that be the herd mentality that blew up the bubble, or the herd mentality that collapsed it again, or both??

    Both would be accurate. If they're just targeting the bust with that comment, we're back to Bertie's "you might as well go and commit suicide" comment.

    Am curious why would online sites not discuss something that's being openly discussed on twitter anyway? I'm referring to the Sunday World front page in tomorrows edition.

    Two reasons: one is ongoing investigation and possible legal proceedings into very serious alleged offences, the other is the fear of libel suits if the rumours circulating on the web and journalist circles happen to be off the mark.
    "It is we the workers who built these palaces and cities here in Spain and in America and everywhere. We, the workers, can build others to take their place. And better ones! We are not in the least afraid of ruins. We are going to inherit the earth; there is not the slightest doubt about that. The bourgeoisie might blast and ruin its own world before it leaves the stage of history. We carry a new world here, in our hearts."

    All kinds of stuff is discussed on twitter. The Sunday World wants to sell papers at all costs and is taking a chance. The girl concerned has a right to privacy under the law.

    How come the Sunday World are prepared to put the story up on their front page?

    Have they enough financial muscle behind them to take a potential hit perhaps?

    Personally, I would have nothing to do with a site that carries discussions of such a nature.
