Complainant Name:
Ms Natalie Lue

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Daily Mail

Complaint:

Ms Natalie Lue complained that an article in the Daily Mail inaccurately said that she had set up a blog in order to take revenge - or 'e-venge' - on a former partner. In fact, her blog (www.whenawomansfedup.co.uk) had been set up simply to document events in her life. She had indeed made references to ex-partners and to dates she had been on, but those references - occasional as they were - could hardly be classified as vengeful. Indeed, she had not named her exes on the blog - nor had she disclosed her own identity until 2006, two years after the blog was established.

Resolution:

The newspaper accepted that Ms Lue had not started blogging simply to take revenge on her ex-partner. It also accepted that revenge was not the central theme of the blog, even though there were instances of the complainant making critical remarks about her ex and about other individuals she had dated. It agreed to remove the article from its website and mark its cuttings archive for future reference. The complaint was resolved on that basis.

Report: 77
