    Just found this in Monkey in The Guardian
    “Fur flies at Sky News
    The search is on at Sky News for the mystery staffer who started firing back retorts to some of the homophobic emails sent to the channel in reaction to the wedding of Elton John and David Furnish. Some of the emails were on the redneck side of narrow-minded – including one unfortunate reference to Gary Glitter. It’s good to know Sky News viewers are such a liberal, fair-minded bunch, eh? But channel deputy Simon Cole was outraged that viewers have been receiving fiery retorts from the email address “Sky News”. He sent a message to staff saying it was a “very serious matter” and ordered the culprit to own up immediately or he’d send the IT sniffer dogs out to hunt them down. A spokesman said the broadcaster had apologised to the viewer concerned. Monkey also hears that almost as many emails were sent in about Sky News presenter Kay Burley, who kept the chill at bay outside Elton’s Windsor bash by wearing what appeared to be a fur coat, a day after Sky News ran an expos? on the fur trade. A fur coat? The very thought!”
