More from those charming Mail Online commenters

There's a horrible story on the Mail website right now, telling the tale of a British woman who was gang-raped while in Thailand.

As the anonymous Daily Mail Reporter (most likely some wire service or local paper the story has been nicked from) explains:

A British woman described how she was gang raped for two hours in a Thailand hotel by men who then phoned her mother to demand money.

The 23-year-old claims she was assaulted by a group of Swedes and Thais in a room near Patong Beach, in Phuket, after agreeing to go back for a party.In a sickening phone call, her attackers told her mother back in Britain that they would rape her again unless they received money.

A friend described how the men placed a hood over her head and then laughed as they phoned her mother.

"She had gone back to the room with a Swede," she added. "But inside there were five others, including three Thais. She was raped and then oneof them demanded her mother's phone number. There was laughter as one of the gang members told her mother that unless she sent money, her daughter would be raped again.

"Afterwards she went to find the Embassy official. I don't think she could even remember her attackers and I guess she was drunk."

The woman has now flown home after the authorities concluded that would be "hopeless" to try and prosecute anyone. Awful stuff. So what do the lovely comment-leavers of Mail-land have to say about it?

As I write this, the story has only been online for about 90 minutes. But already this comment has a net "green arrow" rating of almost 400 and is by some way the most green-arrowed

And that's not the only charming message getting the green arrow treatment. There's also this:
