That's all.

Why?

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 14:09:32

Because I'm in too deep. Time to step away.

Oh Loops Ive just posted to you on the Champix thread, I really think Me and Mrs Crump need you!

But, if you really have to step away (has someone upset you?) then take care and pop back x

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 14:15:58

Loops don't flounce!

I have a better idea. Come back to the Creative Writing topic and edit your NaNo novel with us. Far better way to spend time than arguing with strangers on the internet.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 14:20:37

if you are getting upset like this then its always good to take a break, I've found. but I always get sucked back in, then I lose all my cool names

good luck.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 14:26:38

I didn't think shiney warranted deletion!

Oh loops. Have a break but don't de-reg. A break is a good thing - I think most people do it.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 22-Jan-13 14:30:12

One person's 'twatty behaviour' is another one's good laugh.
And vice versa.
You'll never agree with everybody all of the time.
It's ridiculous to flounce because of one thread where a couple of people disagreed with you.

shine0ncrazydiamond Tue 22-Jan-13 14:31:29

What, calling someone an idiot and a bust up about a cake thread?

Bizarre stuff.

Chill out and take some time and then you can come back and call m a fool any time you want.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 14:32:43

Ooh LadyBE you're such a hardarse today! I likes it! <flutters eyelashes>

MoaneyMcmoanmoan Tue 22-Jan-13 14:34:43

Don't Loops.

You are a bully-buster and one of the good 'uns. grin

shine0ncrazydiamond Tue 22-Jan-13 14:38:51

I've been deleted on here too?

Oh dear.

For the record i didn't make a personal attack. Seems you can't even be brisk these days.

MrsWolowitz Tue 22-Jan-13 14:41:48

I've just come back from a short-lived break.

I was taking everything too personally. Maybe a break will do you good but hope to see you around again soon.

If Mumsnet has seen you through so much and obviously you have returned the favour by helping others, why flounce?
You cant expect to agree with every member all the time, if someone upsets you then ignore.

I find it difficult to believe someone who has had positive experiences until now is going to leave over one comment on one thread.

<waves to MrsWolowitz>

Not sure what the form is to welcome back someone on someone else's flounce thread, but hey ho!

AlienReflux Tue 22-Jan-13 14:49:26

Loops I've seen you be really helpful and caring on some threads, just switch off for today, and come back tomorrow, and yes call a twat a twat, it helps! grin

I'm sorry, but "in crowd"?

<Sigh> whatever.

I hope you feel better soon.

MoaneyMcmoanmoan Tue 22-Jan-13 15:02:07

Loops, again, you are a good sort and that thread is just...weird. You did the right thing.

I have to go out now, but I really really hope that thread doesn't spill over to this one.

Glares

loops I am sorry you feel like that. I guess we all take things differently, all see things differently.
I just think it is a shame.

MrsWolowitz Tue 22-Jan-13 15:19:23

<waves to Keema >

Sorry you feel so upset Loops

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:20:57

Loops ... my recent flounce is wearing off slightly. You will calm down and feel less angry about this. But when you do come back, I really don't think it is a good idea to report iffy posts if they aren't directed towards you. It does make you (one) come across as a bit prefect-ish, or even the infamous professionally offended, and that is very much disliked on Mumsnet as a general rule.

Someone reported a.n.other poster for being horrendously rude to me once and the post got deleted, but I was really furious. Had I wanted it deleted I would have reported it myself.

This is not to say that your motivations weren't sound, but you know we mainly are big girls on this site.

Pagwatch Tue 22-Jan-13 15:22:28

Don't go loops.
It's all a storm in a cupcake.

I respectfully disagree Mintyy.

There are no innocent bystanders - that's what we teach our kids, and we should model it ourselves.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 15:26:32

Mintyy, I disagree with respect.

RowanHQ said the complete opposite on the other thread, infact.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:27:36

However, having seen Rowan's post on the other thread about how much they LOVE all reports, do feel free to say "fuck that Mintyy" to my previous post grin.

MarcelineTheVampireQueen Tue 22-Jan-13 15:27:38

I disagree too Mintty, OP was dead right to report that post. And the subsequent mocking was not called for.

And since when is reporting a personal attak seen as "prefecty". And where are these general rules on MN? Ive been here many a year and a personal attack is a personal attack. Moany is right There are no innocent bystanders - that's what we teach our kids, and we should model it ourselves.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:28:02

Oh, I see you already did.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:28:37

Ha!

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 15:29:48

smile None of that 'respectfully disagreeing' for me!

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:32:13

But Loopy didn't you report a post directed at someone else, someone in particular. Surely she should have been the one to report it if she were offended by it?

StressDaily Tue 22-Jan-13 15:33:55

I wonder why personal attacks towards 'popular' posters is less abhorrent to you.

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 15:36:14

Why?

The post that offended me was one that indicated that most of MN thought bad things about her. Allowing people to post that sort of nasty bullying spite is horrible. Everyone should have reported it. And it affects us all, as she was accusing most of us of thinking that way along with her.

In the case of a playground, if your child was being picked on and their friends watched, did nothing because your child didn't tell the teacher for whatever reason, what would you think of those friends? It is the responsibility of all of us to stop that kind of behaviour. Everywhere.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 15:37:16

loopy, with all respect, people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones. there were plenty of PA's (and much nastier than idiot) coming from you on the other thread.

I am not in a clique.

I am not one of the cool kids.

yet you still continued to attack me, calling me a bully and so on, all for disagreeing with you wrt what constitues a PA and merits reporting.

and some of your posts on here have been a thinly veiled continuation.

I hope you enjoy your break and come back to mn refreshed.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 22-Jan-13 15:37:43

"Cliquey bitches" and "the cool kids behaving like dicks".
So you're quite happy to give it out yourself OP hmm

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 15:38:09

and please cease with the cries of bully. it minimizes real bullying.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 15:38:51

I think you're losing the moral highground a bit here Loops.

Loops ... my recent flounce is wearing off slightly. You will calm down and feel less angry about this. But when you do come back, I really don't think it is a good idea to report iffy posts if they aren't directed towards you.

This is not to say that your motivations weren't sound, but you know we mainly are big girls on this site.

Sorry but we flatly disagree with this here at MNHQ and to prove it I'm going to cross-post my irritating summary from the other thread:

Please report
We love reports
We love reports about posts that you think are attacking you
We love reports about posts that you think are attacking other posters
We love reports about spam
We love reports about trolls
We love reports about trolls who turn out to be regulars

We just really do love reports.

<runs through a sun-dappled field holding hands with a report>

We do not think reporters are prefects, or sexually frustrated, or PO, or bored. We think they're people who like Mumsnet and want to keep it running reasonably smoothly, and see reporting as a way they can contribute to that.

Just wanted to get that on the record, really.

So, you know, to summarise: please report.

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 15:45:28

I don't really care what you think LBE. Fact is, I called some people up on their bullying. They can clamp their hands over their ears all they like if they don't want to here it, I'm just not sticking around to be part of it.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 22-Jan-13 15:45:28

Oh I've RTFT now. My post was superfluous

it wasnt bullying.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:47:04

Sorry, I still disagree. I think hq deletes far too many posts. I think that the post you reported was uncalled for but why sweep it under the carpet? It may have been a joke, who knows.

Anyway, I can almost guarantee you will calm down about all this and miss certain aspects of the site and be unable to resist coming back.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 15:48:24

I agree with mintyy.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 15:48:39

<really going now> grin

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Tue 22-Jan-13 15:52:17

What thread was this? The cupcake thread? I'm a bit confused

I reported a couple of the posts on that thread - so shoot me.

And yea on the 22nd day of the New MN year, it did come to pass that one bun-fight begat another bun-fight which kickethed off another bun-fight, and yea it was so for ever and ever.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 15:59:07

What is a PA?

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 16:00:10

<Sigh> it wasn't a lie. I quoted you (something that was deleted as a pa) I shant repeat it again because that's why I was deleted. Stop trying to paint me as some wicked lying bully. hmm

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:00:13

At the end of the day, people can report whatever they want and whenever they want. A report doesn't equal a deletion, not automatically. HQ have sole decision on deleting or leaving standing so all this wrestling with the minutae is a bit pointless.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:00:36

minutae? minutaie?

FFS

details

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 22-Jan-13 16:03:21

But I only made one PA on that thread
So your'e flouncing for doing exactly the same thing as you claim others did.
You see, I'm just not getting your argument, sorry.

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 22-Jan-13 16:04:01

Oh stop being so reasonable Pinot grin

StressDaily Tue 22-Jan-13 16:04:53

Delicious irony all over this thread. Yum.

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 16:05:22

I'm incredibly pissed off with the way the op is trying to paint me as a lying bully. I have been here almost 7 years and supported as well as having been supported.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:05:38

heh heh grin

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 16:05:46

LBE, the one post which could have been construed as a PA was there to highlight why the 'most of MN think that you are' made that poster's attack far worse than the simple insult.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:06:08

MINUTIAE!

<phew>

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:06:55

sorry trampy, that was to naughty LadyBE not you. <<dark looks at LadyBE>> ;)

LoopsInHoops Tue 22-Jan-13 16:07:28

anyway, that's me done. smile

TrampyPants Tue 22-Jan-13 16:08:10

I know, pinot, lovey grin

Bye op.

Big, complicated word Pinot.

<impressed>

Catchingmockingbirds Tue 22-Jan-13 16:11:34

I'll miss you smile

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:11:34

I know! Exhausted myself. Sheesh.

I clearly do not fit in properly on MN, as I have never reported anyone, never been deleted, and never felt the need to report a thread.

I may of course have been reported many times, but as I am rarely if ever offensive I doubt it.

Or I am just bloody boring?

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:15:07

Dearest Exit
Must try harder, darling
Bestest,
Pinot

Fuck off

blush

<sorry>

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:18:44

atta girl!

next week : passive aggressive smileys smile

DoItToJulia Tue 22-Jan-13 16:21:41

How do you report a whole thread? I don't see a report thread option. Not going to do it, just curious btw.

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:23:28

Just report the opening post, DoIt

usualsuspect Tue 22-Jan-13 16:23:55

Just report the first post.

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 16:26:16

I guess you report the op and say "Heads up HQ, this one's a wrong un".

But I have never done it. I hardly ever report anything except the obvious trolls and spammers. I assume that if anyone feels hurt or bullied by an individual post that they will report it themselves.

See all you serial reporters know what to do....
smile <- PA?

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 16:27:02

Erm ... hello Usual grin.

BIWI Tue 22-Jan-13 16:28:34

PA = personal attack

FlouncingMintyy Tue 22-Jan-13 16:30:54

Ah, thank you. I had it all confused with our favourite Antipodean orange-hued doting dad and the PO.

Eh, Loops, come back soon. x

usualsuspect Tue 22-Jan-13 16:32:16

Hello, Minntyy.

Your flounce lasted about as long as mine grin

I though it was Passive Aggressive?

confused

Pagwatch Tue 22-Jan-13 16:37:33

Did you get the mambo joke yet Exit?

Pinot Tue 22-Jan-13 16:38:31

PA is personal attack or passive aggressive. Depends on context.

HTH smile

I loved the Mambo joke.

The rest, not so much smile

DoItToJulia Tue 22-Jan-13 17:08:40

Oh, ok. I thought I had a defective version! <paranoid!>

Nope. Still not got the Mambo joke.

Keep singing 'Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano' which is not going down well Chez Exit.

In fact, Moody Mare tried to kick me [ouch]

Defective version of what Julia?
