There's a rumour that anyfucker has been banned. Can you clarify before there is a riot please?

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.

This. Definitely this. It is the posters like AF who make MN what it is,and without the regulars like her,it will lose its character - the reason why so many of us are here.

As I have just said in another thread:
Regardless of what you think of her, she was always fucking right.as sure as eggs are eggs, in a day, a month, a year, the OP would come back and say AF you were right. Why didn't I listen to you?

"If she has they won't say."

Why not? They did when DBF was banned in November 2011.

SamBonoFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 21:41:35

What can MNHQ possibly say?

There is no good reason to ban her.

girliefriend Wed 23-Oct-13 21:42:30

Why would they have banned her? confused

AnyFuckerknowswhatursayin Wed 23-Oct-13 21:44:43

If mumsnet disagrees with AF and feminist outlook then it's not the mumsnet I thought it was and may as well be nethuns afaic

LeBearPolar Wed 23-Oct-13 21:46:18

I don't think they're going to explain. But unless they do, and it turns out that she has indeed done something that she should be banned for, MNetters are going to feel betrayed and let down.

AF epitomises the forthright, ballsy MNetter that the site used to be proud of, but I suspect that it's easier to ban her than it is to make a determined effort to tackle the MRAs, the rape apologists and the trolls that have infiltrated the site now.

^this. 100% this.

But sadly she just doesn't fit with the "sell more ad space aren't we lovely mummies" route MN seems to be taking these days sad

Sad day if it's true.

I wouldn't expect a proper answer from them though. They'll be trying to ignore the fuss as much as possible until we've all decided to be reasonable probably.

Another one wanting to know if it's true and hoping it isn't

Hasn't Olivia gone on maternity leave now? Bet whoever is covering is wishing they hadn't.

AnyFuckezLaVache Wed 23-Oct-13 21:50:18

Let's all change our bastard names in protest. She is fucking superb, we need her back NOW!!

AnyFuckerGotBunnywhacked Wed 23-Oct-13 21:53:28

theres been a standard acknowledgment on the other thread

Thanks for all the reports - we're not ignoring you, honest! We work in shifts and are waiting for other members of MNHQ to see the thread.

We will say that we never ban anyone lightly. There's a lot of consideration, and often multiple emails, that go on before we even get to that stage.

All of your posts and concerns have been noted.

TeaAndSconesTwiceFucker Wed 23-Oct-13 21:54:40

Yes I would like to know WHY, shocking behaviour MNHQ

StainlessSteelBegonia Wed 23-Oct-13 21:57:17

Peeps, MNHQ have actually just deleted the Support Attack thread because it's "not in the spirit of the site."

This IS the site. It's speaking back right now. That's the point.

AnyFuckerGotBunnywhacked Wed 23-Oct-13 22:00:30

Message from MNHQ: Ummmm, full of PA's / not in the spirit of the site
deletion pretty sure it wasn't passive

TrinityRhino Wed 23-Oct-13 22:00:31

so deleted our support thread but not answered us??

AnyFuckerGotBunnywhacked Wed 23-Oct-13 22:01:07

ignore me pa in this case being personal attack not passive aggressive

Thurlow Wed 23-Oct-13 22:01:45

Poor show, HQ - don't delete the support thread before responding to people's concerns.

I can appreciate there were one or two comments which did need to be removed. But that was it. Not the whole thread.

AnyFuckerForAScone Wed 23-Oct-13 22:03:07

Well my spirit is well and truly fucked off.

AF, TSC, Xenia, Scottish mummy.

MsIngaFewFUCKERS Wed 23-Oct-13 22:04:46

Bring back AnyFucker, we need her for Christmas. It won't be Christmas on MN without seeing AnyFuckerForamincepie sad

Cat98 Wed 23-Oct-13 22:40:49

Noooo! She is so helpful and stands up for people who really need it. And she doesn't take any crap. I hope she does come back.

NomDeClavier Wed 23-Oct-13 22:41:18

Asking her to time it down, sure. Making it crystal bloody clear that AF is, indeed, any fucker and not a representative of MNHQ, being it on. Banning her because....why exactly? I don't see what changed except maybe MNHQ's attitude! Or did AF cross some kind of invisible 'we have had precisely ten squillion reports concerning you now, so that last one has just made you go pfft! Nine squillion odd was fine but we set an arbitrary limit so byeeeeee' line?

I don't get it.

TSC and Xenia have both been banned too?
