Another stupid law? You are not allowed to comment for legal reasons

I talked about some of the top 10 stupid laws in Britain. I feel, there are more such laws – the following quote from a UK newspaper website might be the result of such a law:

Sorry we are unable to accept comments for legal reasons.

The article was about the 19 year-old hermit ‘hacker’ who was arrested in the UK. The article reveals his mother’s statement about his suicide threats if she took away his computer, his childhood photos and other personal details of Cleary.

If the Daily Mail newspaper can legally publish an article, why can’t the readers comment on it? I am wondering, what legal problem might it arise if one talks about the news?

May be it is another stupid law to curb the freedom of voice!
