For no good reason that I can see. It never used to be this zealous, please explain. It's getting tedious and anything even slightly controversial and interesting to discuss is being deleted. I am concerned we are going to be left with a site full of the same few boring subjects.

I have been asked to bring this subject over to here.

Am I the only one who is dying to know who that PBP is?
Is it Mitmoo?

It's always Mitmoo... wink

I don't think it was the op that made the thread turn into a bunfight, but you could argue that the op knows their audience and knows who might rock up to make that happen. So yes, definitely manipulated.

ItsallisnowaFeegle Thu 16-May-13 18:54:30

LaQueen, I think it's doable, only because the OP's on those threads are obviously starting off with an agenda and the rest of us take each thread or at least the majority of as genuine.

It's bloody boring and creepy and I just think do they really, genuinely have nothing better to do with their time? trust me, if all else fails, a day of masturbating is wayyyy much more fun shock

Sorry, what's a PBP?

MooseBeTimeForSpring Thu 16-May-13 19:29:51

Duh, previously banned person/poster?

Helen any chance you'll get the pound sign working on the mobile site. It's been bonkers since you changed the emocions. You said you'd fix it. Months now!!!

Do you mean on the app, hollyisalovelyname?

LaQ - that sounds quite extremely, very, disturbingly ominous.

I can't imagine why anyone would be doing that but I'm probably just a dick ha!

There are lots of MN haters. There are other forums where they encourage people to post stuff and then laugh at all the responses. People get off on getting a reaction.

I have a very good memory and a mental spreadsheet. grin

There are an awful lot of twats on MN TBF.
But far less so than I see on other sites.
So I don't understand why they come on here to mock as this is still the most intelligent and funniest website available IMO.
The threads they start will get the frothers out, and sadly they usually believe what they're saying.

And the forum with the most 'draw' IYSWIM? I genuinely have a good time on here, much to my DP's amusement when I'm hooked on a thread.

I love a well informed spreadsheet.

I'm an immersive MNer. It's all good fun.

Portofino Thu 16-May-13 21:21:52

But LaQueen, for example, I have made comments about stuff you have posted, which I think to be excessive/rude/generalisations and generally you come back with talk of "usual suspects" so presumably you believe that I don't have my own opinions and rely on an underground network of spies. I for one, don't have any hidden agenda.

Portofino Thu 16-May-13 21:24:11

I think I know who towfoursix is though and she DOES have a spreadsheet wink

Is that not posters attracted to the same threads though? So you get the same people posting? I have posted on the Amanda Knox threads for example. Tends to be the same posters with a few newbies. Not a conspiracy.
