It's getting worse. It's over the whole board but they seem to be working their way through the alphabet. There are loads in Baby Names as well. I'm actually giving up now because it's hard to find an active topic that isn't spam.

(well, that and have to get up no anyway.)

I've emailed you (contactus) with a possible short-term fix for Tech smile

Even funnier that they've chosen AIBU to advertise it in. Ckearly haven't read the message at the top about it not being fight club.

It's quite funny really that they should be advertising 'fight night' on Mumsnet. Quite apt sometimes.

I've worn out my Reporting Finger. Off to bed and hope Tech has felt up to leaving her [gin] long enough to deal with the buggers by the morning.

come on MNHQ it's been an hour now since the first one sad

Some sites do have a special word/phrase to summon mods, it could work well here.

I blame all those Klaxon threads about pus. We've been crying Wolf for months but now we really need a KLAXON!!!!

If you go into customise, you can select to have a hide button next to the threads in active convos, which makes it a lot easier to deal with.

I can't take it anymore, I'm defecting to Netmums.

J/K, I'm off to bed though, so chuffing annoying. WAKE UP MNHQ!

DoubleLifeIsALifeHalved Sun 03-Mar-13 01:59:41

I've been reporting, but not liking it tonight, amid the bots and the vile trolls it doesn't feel a very friendly place to be

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 01:58:56

I'm just reporting them then hiding them

Cheddars Sun 03-Mar-13 01:58:14

What's the best thing to do? Ignore or report?

ClayDavis Sun 03-Mar-13 01:55:14

I think you've got a problem in AIBU. More of a problem than usual anyway.

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 01:45:36

MNHQ need a wallace and gromit style system to tip them out of their beds and to the deleting system

More spam grommit?

DeepRedBetty Sun 03-Mar-13 01:45:31

Missed last night - was it bad? - will go back to Report and then Hide....

Christ. Two nights in a row. This isno good for late night BF session! Tech - sort it out!!

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 03-Mar-13 01:44:03

Ooh, and they've ventured out of chat tonight.

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 01:41:58

God knows. we've been a real target the last few days. Fed up of it now especially at night when HQ are all asleep wink

How shit must those fights be, that they need to advertise by spamming Mumsnet, of all sites?

HazeltheMcWitch Sun 03-Mar-13 01:37:25

But they've chuffed up their links tonight!

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 01:37:01

lubeybooby Sun 03-Mar-13 01:36:43
