Submission + - Primary school girl told to stop photographing and blogging school meals (

JamieKitson writes: "British primary (elementary I think to those of you in the US) school pupil Martha/"Veg" has been taking photographs of her school dinners and blogging about them at her blog Never Seconds since April. The blog has gained in popularity and Martha decided to do something with the popularity, namely raising money for an international school dinners charity. Unfortunately the local council, Argyll and Bute, having apparently not heard of the Streisand effect, didn't like the publicity that her blog was generating and have shut her down. There is a happy ending though, similarly to Matthew Inman found recently, donations have gone through the roof and she has already passed her target."
