that deletions were going to be a bit more reasonable.

I have just seen 2 deletions on a thread that totally weren;t against Talk Guidelines.

What the heck is going no?

I happen to still have a window opem, and can quote them.

It's really annoying and actually unacceptable, as it makes sane poaters look like Vipers when they're not. I thought this was going to be eradicated.

I am really saddened.

HQ?

Deformation Act? Sounds like something that regulates my muffintop at PMT time. Defamation might be the way to go for getting the fear at being sued for being saucy.

I expect Sally Bercow can't spell it either.

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:37:10

Depends on how much port Sally Bercow has consumed. grin

SuePurblybiltbyElves Sat 17-Nov-12 22:39:49

Wouldn't it be interesting to know who shares the threads to FB? <muses>

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:41:11

It would. It's rather sad though, don't you think?

Trills Sat 17-Nov-12 22:42:18

It's their website and they can delete what they want to.

This doesn't scan quite as well.

I might sing it anyway.

ExitPursuedByABrrrrrrr Sat 17-Nov-12 22:42:55

I have never been deleted.

Helen - you are delusional.

<waits>

(I heard someone on R4 yesterday praising some youngsters as they were very articulated. Oh how I laughed)

<pompous>

SuePurblybiltbyElves Sat 17-Nov-12 22:43:01

Shurrup Trills. You would cry too, if it happened to you.

SuePurblybiltbyElves Sat 17-Nov-12 22:44:15

I do think I should have said deluded not delusional. It sounds more grammatically correct.
So perhaps I deserved it.

MmeLindor Sat 17-Nov-12 22:44:36

I was deleted for telling someone to fuck off.

But they deserved it.

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:45:12

grin I'm sure they did, MmeLindor.

Trills Sat 17-Nov-12 22:45:32

If deletions start happening for "not sounding quite grammatically correct" they'll need to hire more MNHQers

Portofino Sat 17-Nov-12 22:47:26

I have met HelenMumnet - She is Gawjess. Sadly I had drunk too much Pinot Grigio and failed to interrogate her about the inner workings of MNHQ/ingratiate myself sufficiently.

MmeLindor Sat 17-Nov-12 22:47:53

I don't think saying someone is delusional is a personal attack.

It is all v box of froggish really.

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:48:02

grin They need to place an advert in the pedant section.

KnottyLocks Sat 17-Nov-12 22:49:15

Tis all a bit confused here tonight.

edam Sat 17-Nov-12 22:49:42

ooh, that'd be a great job opportunity for pedants. grin

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:50:36

It's OK, Knotty. Here, have some wine

KnottyLocks Sat 17-Nov-12 22:51:18

Cheers , lovely grin

MmeLindor Sat 17-Nov-12 22:51:38

LadyM
shhhh, you will have the Pedants' Corner in an uproar with that rumour.

Helen
Could you have a quick peek at the Shopkeeper thread in AIBU - I reported it earlier cause someone was speculating on the identity of one of the delusional posters.

ethelb Sat 17-Nov-12 22:52:02

I got a threads deleted once as I asked for some personal attacks aimed at me.

I'm quite proud of that.

KnottyLocks Sat 17-Nov-12 22:52:36

Tbh I am creeping ever closer to deletions . <necks more wine

SuePurblybiltbyElves Sat 17-Nov-12 22:52:38

<mass exit to the Shopkeeper thread> grin

KnottyLocks Sat 17-Nov-12 22:53:14

Oh Gawd yes, the shopkeeper thread confused

LadyMaryChristmas Sat 17-Nov-12 22:53:25

blush It's not a rumour, just a suggestion.

I keep forgetting to post your wool, knotty. I'm so very sorry. Please kick me on Monday.

MmeLindor Sat 17-Nov-12 22:54:51

It is well nutty, that Shopkeeper thread. There are a lot of odd threads tonight, actually.
