The site's been regularly linked to cyber-bullying in Ireland, and has been cited as a factor in the suicides of at least two young girls.
The father of a girl who took her own life after she was bullied on the website has described the company's decision to move its base here as a 'kick in the teeth' to the people of Ireland.
Jonathon Pugsley says he's disappointed that the company has done nothing to change its policy of allowing people to post comments anonymously.
