meant to post that on other thread sorry

No, I don't think they know what to say either.

Bluntly, MNHQ are a nice bunch but have never been internet savvy. They will have no idea if an invasion of MN is being planned, because they won't monitor for anything like that. And it's easier for them to ban a known factor - like a regular on MN - than it is to actually investigate a mysterious wave of goady fuckers who've appeared here after wide media coverage of Penis Beaker and the Telegraph's recent article about poor MN mummies being cross & horrified by the sex threads.

Moderating a site is hard (and I have the scars from it myself), but unfortunately I think there is now enough external unfriendly interest in MN that MNHQ needs to work out how to protect this community. Banning real community members is NOT a good approach.

Chants "why are we waiting, why are we waiting"
Come on HQ, people are mighty upset about this.

If AF has been a GF, abusive, a troll or a troll hunter or anything else against the rules, she should definitely be treated like any other poster irrespective of her legendary status.

But has she? Because as much as I wouldn't agree with special treatment for MNeratti she is really treasured round here and it isn't s

I was going to suggest Molotov cocktails, but my gin is too precious.

A riot?

What sort of clarification would you like?

They aren't going to tell you the whys, wherefores and whiches.

Especially not at nearly 9pm.

Community members are dispensable though aren't they? It's the advertising revenue that counts and how much of that is controlled by the MRA types? You can't upset them now can you?

Surely not?

Mellowandfruitful Wed 23-Oct-13 21:01:07

I doubt MNHQ will say very much about this, if anything.

AnyFuckerGotBunnywhacked Wed 23-Oct-13 21:11:15

I would like an explanation an apology and a reinstated AF it might not happen but I'm going to try you don't ask you don't get

Name changed in support.

EricLovesAnyFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 21:26:57

I dare say anyfucker did/does make some personal attacks. She's a very active and visible member and the abuse/rape apologists, mras and handmaidens hate her and attack her regularly. So I'm sure she responds in kind. But, look at the proportion of PAs next to the proportion of incredibly sensible, insightful and helpful posts she does - there's no contest. She's too valuable to us, to mumsnet. She's been goaded and provoked by trolls and posters with a strongly anti feminist and anti woman agenda, and she gets banned. Wtf.

BellEndTent Wed 23-Oct-13 21:27:37

Hear, hear Stainless.

LurkingNineToFive Wed 23-Oct-13 21:27:50

Tell us!!!

Isabeller Wed 23-Oct-13 21:31:28

What you say sounds very plausible Stainless. It is such a shame.

Pancakeflipper Wed 23-Oct-13 21:32:20

I bet the MNHQ staff member who flicked the 'banned' switch is currently sat under a desk surrounded by other MNHQ staff muttering "why did you do that? You realise that's nuclear and there will 146 threads demanding your explanation by 11.30pm. It better be a good reason...."

happyon Wed 23-Oct-13 21:33:33

Come on MNHQ. What's going on? You must know that you are wrong by this stage.

NotEnoughTime Wed 23-Oct-13 21:34:43

I really hope this is not true sad

Yes, AF was direct and didn't mince her words BUT she was one of the kindest, wisest and most compassionate posters on here.

I don't know what has gone on but I do know that if she has been banned we have lost a good, sage advisor who has helped many desperate (and no, I'm not exaggerating when I say desperate) women over the years.

BunnyHill Wed 23-Oct-13 21:37:51

I'd be happy to riot for this cause. It does feel like the beginning of the end... sad

I hope it's not true too sad

AnyFuckerknowswhatursayin Wed 23-Oct-13 21:39:12

REINSTATE PLS

AnyGnuFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 21:39:30

Pretty sure the cyber-riot is in full swing! It's going to take a lot of gin for HQ to calm the vipers nest tonight!

Bring back AF... I feel like we need a hashtag - #BBAF
