Show your support here. The other thread is still going. Not nice.

There are not lots of threads where a MN poster is called a cunt confused

Lots where a public figure or an anonymous ex or traffic warden is.

But not a poster.

It's horrible and I would be pretty perturbed if I saw that about me.

If anything this thread may reassure a newbie rather than exclude them.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:24:34

I completely agree MrsDeVere and I don't think there are many posters who would just brush off such a nasty thread tbh so this is a nice alternative smile

Can't see a problem with this thread, I am quite new and not found mn a closed circle. The problem is that the other thread should have been deleted much quicker than it was. And I think, despite the jokes about gin, that wasn't good enough on the part of mnhq. Nobody likes to be called a cunt.

Lovelygoldboots Thu 07-Feb-13 08:32:51

Not quicker than it was, deleted at the time (not woken up)

Cunt is used here so often that I don't think it has any meaning/value at all!

I personally don't like the ass licking that followed.

But I agree its not nice to be called one. Perhaps everyone should use it less eh?

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:36:54

Cunt is used by some people a lot on here, and for some it definitely holds its meaning.

I'm on Team Worra!

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:37:40

Tbh it wouldn't matter what word was used, it was a personal attack.

MonaLotte Thu 07-Feb-13 08:38:38

I really don't understand why the other thread is still there. Have hq commented yet?

wibblyjelly Thu 07-Feb-13 08:40:41

Not yet. I've just reported it again.

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:41:19

Actually the thing that irritates me is the allegations of kiss assing afterwards.

When someone posts a shit thread like that most normal people recoil because they recognise that if someone posted that about them it would upset them.

So the human response is comfort.whether it be through joking to change the subject or comforting the target through reassurance that no, the whole world doesn't think they are a cunt.

That is a nice thing. A generous instinct. Why it gets sneered at as sucking up or some such guff is baffling to me.
But then I live in a world when some piece of shit thinks that writing a whole thread about another poster is fair. So I am pretty baffled anyway.

Unnecessary and arse licky IMO

Tanith Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:35

I got the impression that Worra found it hilarious and wasn't taking it at all seriously. Not that I've waded all through it, I admit.

Still, if she needs hand-holding, mopping up, a shoulder to sob on, a hanky to borrow (like hell, she does grin), I'm there for her, too.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:43

Quite Pag!

Why is a nice thread 'arselicky'? confused

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:42:48

grin
Excellent x-post.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:43:39

Pag that wasn't to you btw just to this thread.
Worra probably could t give a toss and she's not flipping dying just some prat has said something stupid about her.

magimedi Thu 07-Feb-13 08:43:45

^^ Agree with Pagwatch.

I am pretty new here & don't think this makes MN seem cliquey or quichey!

threesypeesy Thu 07-Feb-13 08:44:44

i really like worra.... she always gives great advice to people, one of the posters you pay attention too

was rather shocked at the other thread such a personel attack on someone!

Greythorne Thu 07-Feb-13 08:46:04

But the only idiot is the OP from the other thread. So support for worra has been amply demonstrated. We'll be at 1000 posts by elevenses.

This thread makes it seem like some of the other posters were in agreement, hence the need for a "support" thread. But that's not the case. Is it? Must admit I have not read every single one of the 700+ posts.

Top marks to worra for being so chilled about it. I think she is extraordinary. I would be quivering in my slippers if someone started a thread about me and called me a silly billy, let alone a cunt.

valiumredhead Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:11

I'm pretty sure peope think they would brush off a thread calling them a cunt - and incidently it's still going on this morning on another thread -in reality I think there are very few people who are able to completely shrug off a personal attack, so I would always err on the side of caution personally.

amillionyears Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:18

I have never had a problem with her.

I expect Worra will be fine.

ledkr Thu 07-Feb-13 08:47:40

Original thread is supportive whilst being lighthearted.
This one is ott and pointless giving too much weight to what has actually happened.

Waits for someone to start a name calling thread about me.

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 08:49:53

Why is ledkr such a cunt? grin

Pagwatch Thu 07-Feb-13 08:51:00

There will be half a dozen threads in the next few hours grin

I was commenting on the whole situation Ledkr. I have only been on mn for a bit but have the royalty/ass kissing/sucking up thing several times on threads. It's sort of the way things like this go.
