Not exactly a new user but are threads just being deleted because they dont like what they are being told? One in question the tongue piercing of the 12yr old?? No identifiable features there but still deleted, makes a bit of a joke of the whole thing really.

Agree
It's almost a joke now
Pathetic

Glad im not the only one, deleting the piercing one has really pissed me off!

I couldn't believe it when that thread was deleted.

As this is a thread about a thread you can expect this to be deleted soon too btw.

Ha ha will make the whole thing even more of a joke then confused

That thread got deleted as the op talked a big game but went running off to mnhq when she got a kicking.

could be argued deleting is common for all sorts of stuff on here, some people ask for honest opinions, get upset with honest responses then report, i don't get the privacy bit, over 65 million people in the country ? wtf is the chance that you actually know xyz poster ?? ZAPPPPP....

Deleted to protect privacy. Thread in site stuff MN have commented.

The usual
"We don't usually delete threads confused posters privacy yadda yadda"
Bollocks
Op got her arse handed to her , was deeply unpleasant to other posters
And then said she was going to have her thread deleted
Jack shit to do with privacy

The deletion message was 'to protect the OP's privacy'.

There is another thread running on this subject and Helen from Mumsnet HQ explained that real deletion reason was 'turning into a nasty bunfight'. Helen claimed to have pressed the wrong deletion message by mistake as she is very busy tonight.

I'm not sure I believe any of the excuses, TBH.

I think MNHQ just said on another thread that they used the wrong deletion message by mistake. Thread in site stuff about it.

The celebrity gossip thread 2 was deleted was people were talking about a banned topic. So someone started another and everyone was very good and didn't talk about the banned topic. But then they banned it for being a TAAT anyway

Pissed me off that being deleted, absolutely ridiculous angry

CockacidalManiac Mon 07-Nov-16 21:38:34

Take as old as time.

AIBU?
Yes you are.
NO I'M NOT!
Flounce.

Mishegoss Mon 07-Nov-16 21:38:47

The only one I'm upset about is 'My Nanna'

CockacidalManiac Mon 07-Nov-16 21:39:45

Funny how none of the threads that the DM gets hold of are ever deleted.

gunting Mon 07-Nov-16 21:40:42

What happened to the nanna one?

This is the 3rd TAAT i have seen about this.

pipsqueak25 Mon 07-Nov-16 21:50:20

i thought we enjoyed a democratic society, what is all this no taat shite about anyway, and how does mnhq know unless someone reports it ???be very afraid... big sister is watching.... smile

Does it matter? It's an Internet forum. I don't understand why anyone cares!

YetAnotherHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 07-Nov-16 21:54:45

The Nanna one was a troll, and the message reflected that we think? Can we ask you to keep this to the one thread now as we can keep an eye on it more easily in one place? We confess we are a little taken aback at this response when by hobnobs' description it certainly sounds like a bunfight (not to mention the number of reports). www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/2775131-Deleted-to-protect-privacy-seriously?watched=1&msgid=64748654#64748654

Has the thread about the helpful girlfriend helping the OP's little daughter been deleted? I will be so annoyed if it has.

CockacidalManiac Mon 07-Nov-16 21:57:30

I quite like a bun fight.
