Maybe I'm being oversensitive but I was accused of being a troll at the weekend (I wasn't) then my account was suspended temporarily whilst MNHQ looked into things.

Now I find certain posters piling in with PAs and hardly anything done if I report them. Yet if I'm reported I get the big guys of MNHQ coming onto me.

I do have a bit of free time due to gardening leave so maybe too much to spend on boards and yes gardening leave work situation was sudden and has depressed me...

But I'm wondering whether MN is for me anymore. Don't want to spend every fifth post wondering who will pile in. They had their reasons on this newest post. Tried to apologise to no avail.

Are you having any fun at all on MN?

If it's upsetting you maybe it's time to give it a break?

But so give it a good and proper flounce when you leave.

You can name change you know? confused

You don't need permission to stay. It's a bit of a passive aggressive goady thread this to be honest. I have fuck all clue who you are other than someone saying they might leave and insinuating others are picking on them.

The whole " I sharted on the bus thread" might have been ill advised.

Just name change or give it a good and proper flounce. I do so love a good flounce.

Don't go OP, fuck all the knob head keyboard warriors. Just name change smile

You have made (that I've seen) two particularly mega response inducing posts/posted on thread.
I felt like you didn't step away when it may have been best for you, you inferred that you were brought up better than another poster because her contribution - which was also that of the majority of posters, was different to your own opinion. But yes you got your arse handed to you on the woman at the door thread.
I'd name change as you will have poo affiliations smile but don't go. I like your posting style in the main. flowers

I haven't actually followed this thread...

There is no way I'm going to name change.

Feral I won't name change but I will lie low. I really did get my arse handed to me on the woman at the door thread, and the ones who did agree with me soon fled at the first sign of the others turning! Hey ho!

Youngpretender yes the farted on the bus wasn't my finest hour but I've seen worse here and the abuse I got was unreal. Really silly stuff. Keyboard warrior syndrome where they wouldn't dare name call in real life!

I've decided I'm going to stick to the fluffy threads I know best for now which are Telly Addicts, Litter Tray, S&B and Chat and then retry after a couple of months under this name. If the vipers chase me under it then I'll namechange!

Thanks all! smile

Super I'm not sure if you'll see this, but just to say I'm really sad on your behalf about the framers on your "problem on the bus" thread. I didn't see the other one.

Try not to let them grind you down, and please don't feel you have to name change, you really shouldn't be forced to by people who haven't got a clue and no sense of perspective

Sorry about the job situation, it will all work out fine

"these things too will pass"

About the flamers, that should say...

SuperFlyHigh Wed 30-Nov-16 21:44:28

daisy yes the job situation has worked out fine thanks!

The flamers on that thread were quite vile because it was PA and abuse but I reported them. And on other threads if I get similar abuse i just report. Why should I name change?!

I admit if you know me (ha, famous, don't think so here!) I'm quite marmite (love or hate) but that's me. And I'm not going to change any time soon!

Thanks for your support though, I do recognise your name!

daisychain01 Thu 01-Dec-16 07:52:07

Super - seeing as I love Marmite, you're OK smile

Take it easy, glad work situation is sorted. Hope to see you back posting soon, it's a big world out there, loads of people are nice!

I haven't seen any of your threads and don't recognise you.

I'm not sure why you are so opposed to name changing. Lots of MNers do it all the time, or use more than one name for different types of threads. <shrug>

Generally on MN I'd say that if a thread has actually upset you personally a break is in order. Either NC and lurk for a while you lick your wounds or take a break for a month.

I disagree with the general principle that MN is full of Vipers out to get anyone. Posters just have the ability to be searingly honest and blunt because they are mostly anonymous and it's not face to face. That means that MN isn't the right place for everyone as it can be fairly abrasive and bracing.
