I understand from the grandly renamed Digital Coordinator that posts don't now appear until they've been checked so those which don't toe the official garbage line won't see the light of day.

"Seeing comments today, I was reminded of this post by Cindy Murphy. Thank you to those who come here to be supportive and loving.
In an effort to keep the page positive and so others do not have to see negative comments, the page is now in full moderation. All posts will be moderated going forward. I apologise to those who do post positive comments, but it's the only way to keep the page published and not have to monitor 24/7.
Thank you for understanding and your continued support in the search for Madeleine.
~Official Find Madeleine Campaign, Digital Coordinator (formerly FM Webmaster)"

I googled "buy facebook followers" and top of the results page is this site:
https://www.socialviral.co.uk/shop/UK-Facebook-Page-Likes-c9958295

They charge £299.95 for 10,000 likes.

Perhaps the supporters vanished because OFM have stopped paying for them.

Yep, sounds about right.

It was pretty obvious from day dot that they used to buy up all these 'likes'.

Ridiculous load of nonsense. Sad gets.

Indeed it is....

Command around a 25k P/A on average. Is the fund paying for that....?

Or is Kate doing it for free.

I still think it could be Pammy - she certainly seems to have sod all to do except ward off McCann sceptics 24/7.

Statement from Kate and Gerry McCann on FindMadeleine.com

Post  Freedom on Mon 24 Apr 2017, 11:03 pm


24 April, 2017 - Ten Years

findmadeleine.com
Ten years- there's no easy way to say it, describe it, accept it. I remember when Madeleine first disappeared I couldn’t even begin to consider anything in terms of years. Shawn Hornbeck abducted and kept hidden for over four years, Natascha Kampusch for over eight years. I couldn't go there. And now here we are...Madeleine, our Madeleine- ten years.
Most days are similar to the rest - another day. May 3rd 2017 - another day. But ten years - a horrible marker of time, stolen time.
We are bracing ourselves for the next couple of weeks. It's likely to be stressful and painful and more so given the rehashing of old 'stories', misinformation, half-truths and downright lies which will be doing the rounds in the newspapers, social media and 'special edition' TV programmes.
Media appearances are draining and on occasion, unhelpful to the only thing we want, finding Madeleine. They need to have a purpose. We could spend all our time and energy trying to defend ourselves by correcting inaccuracies and lies, but then we would have no strength left to look for Madeleine, look after our other children and to live our life.
I truly hope that those reporting on the 'story' over the next couple of weeks will have a conscience. Even if little consideration for Gerry and me is shown, they will at least bear in mind the effect such unfounded and unwarranted negativity could have on our other children - and of course Madeleine.
Thankfully, there is an active police investigation to try and find Madeleine and bring her abductor to justice. There are no new appeals that the police wish to make at this moment in time and so we are keeping any media involvement marking this unwanted milestone to a minimum.
The two themes that seem most appropriate to me as we reach this ten year mark are perseverance and gratitude: We will go on, try our hardest, never give up and make the best of the life we have.
We consider ourselves immensely fortunate to have received the love, solidarity and support from so many kind and decent people over the last decade. There have been many challenges and low points along the way but the warmth, encouragement and positivity we have experienced from the ‘quiet majority’ has undoubtedly sustained us and maintained our faith in human goodness. And while that is there, there will always be hope.
Thank you so much from all of our family.
Kate and Gerry

"....in term of years"?

G.M "I have no doubt we will be able to sustain a high profile for Madeleines disappearance in the long term."

To me this sounds like they are not expecting positive stories over the anniversary.

I think they know that the police case is due to finish.

They also want to spin the lack of media interviews over the anniversary. I wonder whether the organisation that bought the exclusive is no longer interested? Either that, or was the interview organised by OG, which is closing early?

Order of priority Gerry, Kate then the twins. Madeleine is an afterthought who is no longer considered to be one of their children.

Post  What's_up_doc? on Tue 25 Apr 2017, 8:59 am

I'm wondering why she has put 'story' in inverted commas, presumably it's because she is anticipating a story other than her own being told? She repeats this with 'storys' and I'm hoping this means there might be a significant shift in the focus of the narrative from the one TM story to something a bit more open ended perhaps. 'Faith', 'hope', 'strength', 'perseverance ' lots of virtuous abstract nouns, not what I was expecting and not very TM which is all about action and being seen to be doing something, so I'm finding that puzzling...

To me sounds like they no longer have Carter Ruck and C Mitchell ready at the snap of a finger to do their bidding, and they are avoiding media appearances themselves because of a large change in public opinion? Just IMO.
