I seem to remember mnhq saying they would consider this, has any decision been made? I would love you all forever, even more than I do now smile

Me too. It would be nice to keep my bp on an even keel!

JUST got your name, Fives <slow>
I've found a way round it. I've hidden everything bar Christmas, Site Stuff (it slipped through) and Telly Addicts. They're the only topics without snarkiness that I've found (Baby names is a hell hole).
It makes MN very quiet, but much naicer.

smile
I don't want to hide bits of mn, you never know what you might miss!

I just got it too, Sue! ::sits next to Sue on slow bench::

Pleaseeeeee HQ? Pleeeeaaaassseeee? Can we have this?

CouthyMowEatingBraiiiiinz Fri 23-Nov-12 11:44:28

Still not got it.

<<Goes and sits on even slower bench>>

It would be handy, there are one or three in particular posters that make me ragey.

I've hidden aibu. Its lush.

But the aibu wankers are infiltrating chat. And that makes me sad

TeeHollyandTeeIvy Fri 23-Nov-12 11:46:36

Say it out loud, couthy.

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 11:49:48

But I like aibu. It's my spiritual home.

I only just got the Manatee name.

I mean I loved it anyway but I never realised it was a play on words, till I was in the car the other day.

and suddenly the world brightened for a moment and I knew.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Fri 23-Nov-12 11:52:20

If I could hide poster, I could unhide aibu

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 11:53:32

Exactly!
I volunteer to be a guinea pig, you can all hide me to make sure it works
you nest of vipers

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:07:54

OK, you already have sad

Please come and add your name to my current petition here.

Does the poster(s) you all want to hide only hang out in Am I being an arse??

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Fri 23-Nov-12 12:15:18

Eh? Who said that? wink

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:16:10

no idea really, I dont think so. Will sign petition smile

Mintyy Fri 23-Nov-12 12:19:10

I think hq are possibly coming round to the idea of a hide poster option. Possibly. It is requested so often, and by so many reasonable mumsnetters, that they surely can't dismiss it as a bonkers idea.

We've just got to wear them down wink.

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:21:11

they did say theyd think about it
then they'd just hide te lot of us and it'd make their jobs loads easier
Apart from poor tech who would be responsible for hiding new posters for all of MNHQ when they joined.

EdithWeston Fri 23-Nov-12 12:24:31

They need to make it "hide user name" though, not "hide poster", else it could be expose name changes. And that would be horrible for people who had NC'ed in order to post about something sensitive.

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:25:46

Yes, you're right, it would. So you would still be exposed to that person under any name changes. But TBH if they're still annoying you you'd hide them too.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Fri 23-Nov-12 12:27:34

They could pop a "why are you hiding this poster" q. And if someone is hidden by loads of mners for being a wanker mnhq will see that.

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:28:43

ooh no not sure I agree with that. If what they post breaks MN guidelines report. If you just can't stand them, hide. They have as much right to be here as anyone else.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Fri 23-Nov-12 12:34:28

But if they are trolling they can bugger off.

It would take a lot for me to hide someone.

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 12:42:01

I have people who just get on my nerves. Most people are fine with them, it is just me. Hiding would make me happy and not affect anyone else.

That is an oddly beautiful turn of phrase.
