    The BBC have stated, as far as they can at the moment, that Ouch is very unlikely to close. That is *much* more than they’ve done for the majority of their websites. See the comments below this blog post (which is basically a list of all their websites – see comment 11 for specific reply about Ouch):

    Hi all,
    Just to say that although the BBC did cut the Ouch message board we have risen from the ashes (actually we never let the flames die out) and after a flase start with a message board that was just too small (!) we now have another thriving message board.

    Named Ouchtoo it has all the old favourite boards from BBC Ouch, but we also have some new and exciting boards for campaigning, and a private area for members only.
    All the old stuffy rules have been abandoned, there is private messaging and no dealy thre minute delay.

    Contrary to the suggestions by the BBC these measures have not resulted in the end of the world !

    And yes, the new board has a huge number of the old posters, and the dark humour and cynicism are still there, but also the good natured, polite and deeply caring ethos is overwhelmingly present.

    If you want a supportive and safe environment, then please come and visit, and say hi to some of the old faces.
