7days

Does anyone have any idea what happened to the 7days website (www.7days.ae), it seems to be outdated, and it appears as if a few articles with dozens of comments have disappeared.

Was there a paper edition of 7days today at all?

I didn't see the paper copy this morning at where I live, though sometimes it comes late; and it doesn't look like they have a current online copy. the date on top of their web home page is today's (Tuesday 23 January), but all the stories underneath are from yesterday or earlier. I also heard recently that they got their wings really clipped after the recent fiasco...

There was a paper edition today. A pretty gross leading story about laborer's cooking stray cats for food. Maybe that's why it's been taken off stands...

Yes, it seems the news online is at least a day old. Anybody read the comments about the letter complaining that there was no special observance for laborers killed in the recent bus crash? That guy really put his foot in his mouth, although he had some defenders.

For those who didn't see the article, the guy implied in his complaint that people are racist in observing a moment of silence for the death of the European/SA's killed in the recent Peugeot crash but not doing the same for the laborers. He pretty much deserved the criticism he got for making an assertion without any evidence (that people were not sympathetic toward the laborers' deaths) and for making these tragic incidents a racial issue.

I think they got into trouble for some of the replies on the site. Is 7days a post-moderated site?

Also, the guy who ran the site left I think

Sam, the awful tabloid rag was delivered to my building as usual yesterday & today. It has Lebanon and Shakira on the front page today and the site seems to be up-to-date.

7days is a post-moderated site and not free at all. I posted a reply and they didn't gave an explanation why they did not pubblished it, although I included name and surname...It regards a doctor who harassed a patient, but that's not good news for wonderful, peaceful and rich Dubai

I also wonder what happened to it. I tried uploading the online version on the 25th and 26th and it's still outdated. Wonder what happened.
