To think that in banning AnyFucker Mumsnet are trying to become NetMums

She's been banned for attacking goady trolls.

I just think she's one of the people that makes this site what it is.

And I haven't been so cross about something purely internet related in a long time. So I'm braving AIBU [dons hard hat]

I actually don't think they are trying to become NM's; I think they are trying to become worse.

The key question is: who exactly are they scared of...?

Sparklyblue Wed 23-Oct-13 22:53:17

Oh no. How do you know she's been banned?

ILetHimKeep20Quid Wed 23-Oct-13 22:53:31

Go keep the spamming to one board at least. Those that give a shit know where to find the 30 other threads. Those that don't deserve a spam free zone.

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 22:58:15

Sparkly She has told someone, and they have posted on Chat.

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 22:59:53


Too late grin

ChippingInNeedsANYFUCKER Wed 23-Oct-13 23:09:20

sparkly - how have you missed all the threads? Please let us know because we'd hate others to miss what's happened too sad

AF has been banned for helping women, standing up for women and saving people from busive relationships... whilst the goady fuckers are rubbing their hands with glee.


jellyboatsandpirates Wed 23-Oct-13 23:09:55

FGS, how many threads on this subject?! confused It's like a form of spam on here tonight! Has no-one got anything else to talk about?! grin

AntlersInAllOfMyDecorating Wed 23-Oct-13 23:10:58

I didn't know! sad

CrispyHedgehogFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:11:02

I was thinking the same.. it'll be glittery tickers and huns and txtspk next.. wtaf is going on?

Twoandtwomakeschaos Wed 23-Oct-13 23:11:17

How? Why? When? Grrrrrr!!!

catgirl1976 Wed 23-Oct-13 23:11:20


AnyFucker has given me so much advice and support

I am shock

Spirulina Wed 23-Oct-13 23:12:31

She hasn't been banned for. 'Attacking goady trolls'....

So wrong on many levels sad

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:12:43

jellyboats I think there's lots of threads on this because AnyFucker is such a kind (and no nonsense) person that people are genuinely upset about it.

FlaseFuckerSpider Wed 23-Oct-13 23:13:55

She kept being warned apparently, and continued with the personal attacks due to Male activists. MNHQ are in discussions with her, she may come back after a slap on the wrists.

Twoandtwomakeschaos Wed 23-Oct-13 23:14:12

Spirulina for what, then?

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:16:16

Of course all the Fucker name changes probably don't help the hunnification of the place.

MissingAnyFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:16:51

jellyboats, it's a big deal to a lot of us.

I'm mostly a lurker but I've admired AF from a distance for a long time. She made such a difference here.

This will leave a hole in many of the threads I usually read. I often find myself waiting for her to show up and help. There aren't many like her left.

CoteDAzur Wed 23-Oct-13 23:17:02

Xenia and AF are banned??? shock

What have I missed? Short summary please.

Scarletohello Wed 23-Oct-13 23:17:41

Ok let's all go on hunger strike until AF is reinstated... Can't actually believe it. That woman is a star. What wd MN be without the likes of her....???

Spirulina Wed 23-Oct-13 23:17:59

Mnhq say she repeatedly broke the guidelines after many warnings...... Nothing about trolls!!

UncleT Wed 23-Oct-13 23:18:48

If she has been banned for 'attacking goady trolls' then you'll probably have noticed that this is expressly against the advisory notice prohibiting such behaviour at the top of every thread. On the other hand, there may well be other aspects to it.

CaseyAdams Wed 23-Oct-13 23:20:31

I'm New, but I found your comments Interesting lol... What threads???

Hope she comes back, she was an amazing support to me recently on Relationships

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:23:10

Sorry, not goady trolls. Men's Rights Activists.

ZingFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:23:46

I hope she doesn't get banned for that.
that'd be ridiculous

ZingAnyFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:26:56

thread after thread seems to get deleted about this. just not right

(NC again.this is better!)

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:28:25

AnyZingFucker? grin

ChippingInNeedsANYFUCKER Wed 23-Oct-13 23:29:53

... and yet this bile stands HERE


AnyZingFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:30:08

yep, that works too! grin

UncleT Wed 23-Oct-13 23:31:42

CaseyAdams - 'Thread' = discussion or topic; discussion thread,

To quote the warning I referred to:

"Note: Please bear in mind that whilst this topic does canvass opinions, it is not a fight club. You may disagree with other posters but we do ask you please to stick to our Talk Guidelines and to be civil. We don't allow personal attacks or troll-hunting. Do please report any. Thanks, MNHQ."

PS - I'm new too.

CosmicDespotFuckingFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:36:11

That's the one for AIBU UncleT. The messages change with the topics.

UncleT Wed 23-Oct-13 23:43:10

I see, Cosmic - apologies for that. As I say, I'm new here too. I'm surprised that the troll reference wouldn't appear in most in not all topics though.

CosmicDespotFuckingFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:47:31

Christ don't apologise! grin I was just being pedantic!

The Talk Guidelines are everywhere, I think.

Welcome to MN! wine

UncleT Wed 23-Oct-13 23:49:16

*if (not 'in')

And - hearty thanks for the welcome!

I disagree with the OP. I suspect many do. I have seen lots of unpleasantness.

I hope this is an end to it, though happy enough for the poster in question to return with improved behaviour.

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:50:21

Hello UncleT, welcome to mumsnet! smile

CosmicDespotFuckingFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:52:14

Has everyone seen Justine's post?

PiffalatoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 23:54:07

Justine has responded on the So-are-MNHQ-going-to-issue-a-statement-about-fuckergate thread on Chat.

Straitjacket Wed 23-Oct-13 23:58:22

I like Anyfucker, but I do think all this spamming of the boards isn't fair on other posters in need of support now. Other regulars have stated that they need support but aren't bothering/have been ignored due to it. Like everyone has said, Anyfucker was always there to give support to many women who needed it so do you really think she would want this? Especially when she is currently in talks with MNHQ and will no doubt be back soon after a slap on the wrists.

FreudiansSlipper Wed 23-Oct-13 23:59:23

yes i have

there are rules on here, there are thousands of posts on here everyday the rules apply to all they have to. warnings were given she ignored them she knows that so really what is the fuss about

mn are able to deal with the trolls, if not spotted report them

i;m on here all the time and i missed this shock
away to read statement

LittlePeaPod Thu 24-Oct-13 08:39:16

WTF? Why? confused

pixiepotter Thu 24-Oct-13 08:58:29

OP and you of course are not she, re registered from a different IP address and new email? ? hmm
