To ask where the update went?

Sorry if this as been done to death. I read all 1000 posts and shamelessly watched the update. One 12 hour shift later and it's vanished leaving me desperately nosy and wanting answers curious.

has

Ooooh no YANBU.

OldLadyKnowsNothing Fri 18-Jan-13 00:18:52

LOL, is this the fourth thread asking? While it still stands, OP, it was a troll. And this thread will go poof too. grin

PickledApples Fri 18-Jan-13 00:20:58

Why is the original still there then btw confused
<hopes she's referring to same thread>

tethersend Fri 18-Jan-13 00:21:04

Can someone tell me what happened?

I miss everything.

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 18-Jan-13 00:22:51

Ooh, I've never had a poof thread! The excitement! I did assume that somebody must have asked before me and was most confused when I could not find an update update or even an update update update...

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 00:24:06

Are we talking (ahem) about MIL from hell? The one who blithely only responded to the vanishingly small number of posters who she could even vaguely interpret as agreeing with her demented views about her d-i-l and waving her new grandchild around like a shiny new toy?

PickledApples Fri 18-Jan-13 00:27:49

Before you go poof grumpy you said you watched the "update" ... So was there a second thread?! If so, what was on it please grin

trofeewife Fri 18-Jan-13 00:31:22

yes what happened on the update...

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 18-Jan-13 00:37:18

I had to leave for work about half 12 so at that point the alleged MIL from hell had invited over alleged DS1 (alleged sainted grand child's father) for a conflab "to make amends" but had also invited all alleged DS2 who disagreed with all of the alleged DILs behaviour because he likes holding babies, or something like that. There was no mention of whether the alleged wolf was still on the alleged rug. So I dutifully put the thread that I have become marginally obsessed with into my watch list and tootle off to work only to find it vanished on my return. Anyone who can describe the denouement will make my Xmas card list!

OldLadyKnowsNothing Fri 18-Jan-13 00:37:50

I know there was an update, I saw it on Active while I caught up with the original thread. By the time I finished reading, the Update had vanished, though the op had posted on it from about 10.30am. (Yes, the mil from hell thread).

And, as I said, I've seen at least three other freds about this fred vanish, so I press "post" with some trepidation.

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 00:38:08

She said she was going to have a meeting with DS and other DS to talk about stuff, but wasn't going to include DIL. Failed utterly to respond to queries such as 'why not include DIL' or 'what was meeting actually going to be about'. Just kept saying she'd taken advice from others (!) and 'was going to sort it all out'.

OldLadyKnowsNothing Fri 18-Jan-13 00:38:55

And x posted with OP.

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 00:39:44

Oh shame Grumpy looks like you saw more than I did - had to go offline at 11.10.

PickledApples Fri 18-Jan-13 00:41:32

But was that "update" deleted because it became a bun fight or for trollery?! (did it say the reason in your "threads Im on"?)

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 18-Jan-13 00:44:07

No because technically I wasn't on it, I was lurking all agog and nosy!

EmpressOfThePuddle Fri 18-Jan-13 00:45:19

I didn't see the message but apparently the OP was 'not all she seemed'.

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 00:46:45

Ooo I WAS on it! Off to check Threads I'm On.

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 00:48:13

Sorry all it says is Thread Deleted. In Big Scary Red Letters.

PickledApples Fri 18-Jan-13 00:49:23

shock scary indeed.

The original is definitely still there - if a work of fiction, surely that would be gone too?

GrumpyCrossPatch Fri 18-Jan-13 00:49:45

A conspiracy I tells ya grin

AngelWreakinHavoc Fri 18-Jan-13 00:51:12

The reason MNHQ gave was....
This thread has been deleted for hmm reasons..

PickledApples Fri 18-Jan-13 00:54:48

How weird that the first one is still there.

It was a strangely emotive subject and was really touching nerves / stirring demons / pissing people off!

But The French One posted 101 posts - a tenth of the total, quite the fabrication.

I don't understand it, but I think trying to understand it is futile!

DeepRedBetty Fri 18-Jan-13 01:03:30

I've just found another thread I was on has been deleted, and I cannot for the life of me remember what it was about! <feels really quite miffed>

I was on the one about a banned poster who'd persuaded another poster to say hi to her old mates. When that one got deleted at least they told us why - 'We think this thread has broken virtually every rule but particularly goading and troll-hunting.'
