A couple of disclaimers: I've not read the thread, just the first page so I apologise if I make points made before. Also, I have never lived in Liverpool ( don't judge me, some of us choose the right path instead of being born on it! ) so this isn't as intensely personal to me as it will be to most of you.
Obviously, any decent person with a knowledge of what happened will be fully behind the boycott of that piece of sh*t publication. I think it should be acknowledged though, from a political standpoint, that other publications are its equal for manipulation and deceit. The Daily Mail might be worse because it aims slightly higher using the same propaganda tricks, so that people tend not to treat it immediately as a comic in the same way they do the tabloids. ( They're all tabloids now, you know what I mean.) There's very little to divide the tabloids morally, or in quality of journalism and they all have the same purpose: to divide the working class, and to distract us from organising on real issues that affect our daily lives. One time it was Liverpool they attacked, but the next ( and sustained over decades) it was black people, single mothers, recreational drug users, the unemployed, immigrants, gay people: any group of people who are made victims in the wider society, any group of people who can't fight back with a strong voice ( some of that now changing slightly) any group where a good portion of working people can be manipulated into hating other deprived groups instead of uniting against the real enemies of poverty and inequality.
See, I saw the filthy Murdoch assault not as an assault on LFC, but on the people of Liverpool who were the only ones in the country to give Thatcher a black eye, apart from the miners.
