Gossip also a hit online

Facebook has reached a lot of kiwi households. It has also reached Oamaru. And it is in this Victorian town that they found a way to move from the water cooler to the web. Messages on the Oamaru Goss profile include comments on whores, prostitutes, people who deserved to be attacked with a tyre iron and stomped on the face. They love saying it as it is in Oamaru. The Timaru Herald talked about the profile and asked Netsafe operations manager Lee Chisholm to respond. Besides the Oamaru Goss there are also Oamaru Insults and Oamaru Mutdog-Skum. Even Dunedin has its own Dunedin Complaints page. She ends with warning the Herald not to give the page publicity. ‘It might be something you people are doing’. Ah, You mean the media? Meanwhile we turn the other cheek and continue to support the media who don’t let lame little pc-clubs dictate what they can write.
