MAIL ONLINE Boobs again by allowing comments on a BNP article.
The Newspaper (I use this term loosely) post what was clearly meant to be an anti-BNP article but again allowed comments.
Which turned out to lean heavily in BNP's favour.
Controversial BNP leader Nick Griffin took his seat in the European Parliament today but failed to find sufficient far-right allies to bolster the party's presence.
However, Mr Griffin and party colleague Andrew Brons were immediately met with controversy after Democratic Unionist Party MEP Diane Dodds refused to take her seat next to them.
The two BNP men were allocated seats 780 and 781 but Ms Dodds refused to take seat 782.
Mr Griffin also took a swipe at Baroness Kinnock, the Europe Minister, after she failed to invite the BNP pair to a reception for new MEPs.
British National Party (BNP) leader and member of the European Parliament Nick Griffin

Mr Griffin told The Times: 'I would not want to share a drink with Glenys Kinnock.
'She is a POLITICAL PROSTITUTE [My emphasise], simple as that. She and her husband started off their careers as anti-common market and now they are there not just with their noses in the trough, they are in the trough.'
MEPs took their places in the Strasbourg Chamber a month after the Euro elections delivered a drubbing to socialists across Europe and boosted the fortunes of the far right in a dozen countries.
The 13 UK Independence Party members have forged a new 30-strong alliance, but the two BNP MEPs have failed so far to find sufficient far right allies from other parts of Europe prepared to join them.
That means the BNP duo lack the necessary political numbers to be part of an officially-recognised political grouping - a status which brings generous European Parliament cash and administrative support as well as places on influential committees and speaking time.
New European Parliament President, Poland's Jerzy Buzek
Elected: New European Parliament President, Poland's Jerzy Buzek, is the first politician from the former communist bloc to chair the parliament
But the two were in the chamber today as the first session of the new five-year term began, and took part in voting to anoint former Polish prime minister Jerzy Buzuk as the parliament's new president.
Today was like the first day of a fresh school term as politicians new and old found their places and their new political allies in a parliament which operates in multinational groups of convenience.
For the first time in 30 years the British Conservative faction is not sitting with other mainstream centre right politicians, but as part of a new "anti-federalist" bloc of 55 MEPs dominated by the 26 UK Tories.
British Labour MEPs, whose numbers dwindled to just 13 in the Euro-poll, remain part of the Socialist group, the second largest faction in the new parliament after the centre-right European People's Party.
More top posts were due to be decided on the opening day of business, with the new parliament already at odds with EU governments for refusing to vote this week on the reappointment of Jose Manuel Barroso as European Commission president for another term.
