Sorry for the new nickname; those who know me already would understand why. Doreen Lawrence has been nominated for an honour from The Queen; whatever you might think about it (an personally I think it's a great idea), have a look at what's being said on this:

So it's better to let them peddle their vile hatred and not even mention it to save you the possible later inconvenience of someone trolling then? So sorry I thought this was a forum where people could bring stuff to the table. Is it not?

MrsDeVere Wed 31-Jul-13 17:32:18

I think some posters are being harsh on the op.
Her reasons for posting seem feasible.
I don't think we should be avoiding mention or linking to a site for fer of trolls.
That way they win

quoteunquote Wed 31-Jul-13 17:32:54

Everyone knows that website is crass.

I had never heard of it,

But why bring this on to Mumsnet?

I imagine the OP want to share it.

Is there a list of what can be shared on MN? it would be useful to know.

Every time someone does this we get invaded by trolls

Really, and so what, if nasty little bullies want to appear, I dare say we can put them back in the box in which they belong.

So we should not discuss vile behaviour in case the vile people turn their attention on us, wouldn't that make us a bunch of cowards.

If my child was murdered by racist cowards, and I had to fight for justice for many years, then endure more vile abuse from more vile racist tiny penis thick turd like people, I would hope other parents such as the ones you find on popular parenting forums, would want to support me.

Most of the ArRSe thread is quoting and bashing comments on the Daily Mail website.

DespairSometimes Wed 31-Jul-13 17:45:31

Thank You MrsDeVere and quoteunquote. flowers I was actually shaking and not going to write any more until I read your kind words. I sent a message to meditrina to tell my usual name, i'm not ashamed of it like someone said, just being careful. Also not ashamed of my DH.

meditrina Wed 31-Jul-13 17:45:52

Sorry - I meant quoting comments and bashing the red arrows.

quoteunquote Wed 31-Jul-13 17:49:18

nice one op.....now when they get wind of this they will be over here trolling. well done!

Again, where is the list of acceptable and non acceptable things to talk about?

and for them to know that MNers are talking about their vile behaviour one of them at least would have to be a MNer,

I don't mind having a discussion with anyone about their bigot like behaviour.

claig Wed 31-Jul-13 17:49:53

From what I have read on there, it seems they are questioning if the Mail is not allowing negative comments.

mignonette Wed 31-Jul-13 17:52:27

Bring on the discussion. I have a boring night on a ferry to fill and tackling self imposed censorship because of 'fear' of trolls needs discussing too. Bit tired of Mners bossing others about re what 'can' and 'cannot' be posted here.

meditrina Wed 31-Jul-13 17:56:13

OP: PM received and reply sent. Looks like I was conflating two things that did not belong together.

Claig: they're saying that, but also criticising the hundreds (literally) of red arrows and not a single green arrow. And pointing out what that means about (various epithets not being copied over) Mail readers.

claig Wed 31-Jul-13 17:58:42

meditrina, I think you are reading that wrong. Reread the thread. they are asking how come so many arrows are red and so few arrows are green, and yet nearly all the comments are positive.

claig Wed 31-Jul-13 18:00:00

Someone even says something like has the Daily Mail become the Guardian.

Burmobasher Wed 31-Jul-13 18:02:12

Hey OP, don't let those posters upset you. I had never heard of this website either so thank you for bringing it to my attention although I won't click on the link.
Your opinion is as valid as anybody else's, some posters do seem to make it their business to tell others what is acceptable to post on MN but none of them are the boss here.

quoteunquote Wed 31-Jul-13 18:02:54

mignonette

No one want to share the list of what is OK and not OK,

It does make you realise why people can be attacked in public places and no one comes to help,

Clearly all these people who object to the OP pointing out that these hideous excuses of humans are being vile about Doreen Lawrence, have never and will never, want or need any support from anyone.

must be amazing to go through life knowing nothing bad will ever happen to you, unique in fact as I have never met a single person who has had a life like that.

and there are quite a few on this thread,

I do hope they share how to achieve this fortuitous feat of the perfect charmed life, I would love to know.

Pagwatch Wed 31-Jul-13 18:03:01

They will come over here and troll

I always wonder at 'look racist/sexist/wankers are on the Internet' threads tbh.

It's nice to know how much she pisses them off though

Pagwatch Wed 31-Jul-13 18:05:50

It's not about having a charmed life.
It's just about knowing that these creatures exist, nothing changes their mind and all ths does is bring them here - to have a go at anyone wh aprons to get in their path.
Those of us who have anyone fragile in our lives don't really welcome that tbh.

mignonette Wed 31-Jul-13 18:07:07

Exactly Quote. They can just walk on by to the naicer threads.

Pagwatch Wed 31-Jul-13 18:13:09

What bollocks.

I spend all my life deling with wankere shouting retard at my son.
Do I want to send weeks of my life deling ith the fall out because someone links a franke Boyle website here?
Er no.

Charmed life, my arse.

quoteunquote Wed 31-Jul-13 18:28:55

all ths does is bring them here

No that is not true,

several posters including myself have said they were unaware of the forum,

so it has been informative,

and as I said someone on MN must inform them of the thread, lurker or active MN if that is true.

It's just about knowing that these creatures exist, nothing changes their mind and all ths does is bring them here - to have a go at anyone wh aprons to get in their path

so we all stay quite and pretend that them attacking Doreen Lawrence isn't happening?

that quite a plan, how do you see that plan ending.

First they came.......

WorraLiberty Wed 31-Jul-13 18:32:54

Informative?

BREAKING NEWS...there's an internet forum where some people are being racist.

Who new?

DespairSometimes Wed 31-Jul-13 18:45:27

Thanks Burmobasher, it's nice to be reassured. Pagwatch I don't really know what to say cos its clearly not nice for you; I'm sorry. Maybe other threads might be less upsetting and more supportive?

As far as the thread goes it seems to have died down, with the last poster congratulating the participants on their restraint. ??

ubik Wed 31-Jul-13 18:47:31

You are flattering them with your attention. You make them feel that what they say is somehow important

It isn't.

Why does anyone need to know about that forum? Why visit it?

MariaLuna Wed 31-Jul-13 18:49:10

Thank God I didn't click on the link. I don't want that kind of filth on my computer.

I think it is brilliant that she got it, the House of Lords needs more people like her in it.

DespairSometimes Wed 31-Jul-13 18:53:27

I'm not aware of making them feel anything tbh. Nothing has been said to suggest I have other than by you. I already explained how I saw what was being said.

DespairSometimes Wed 31-Jul-13 18:54:30

Sorry that was reply to ubik.
