Is it worth perhaps pointing out to people that their entire posts might end up in the Daily Mail? grin

I was a tad taken aback to end up on TV and print, and while it made little difference to me, it may be quite distressing in different circumstances for someone.

I'd be interested to know whether there's any media embargo on copying eg from OTBT? It's not immediately obvious that there is but on that board in particular, people might expect privacy.

People should know that anything that is posted on MN could end up anywhere without needing to be warned, and exercise caution when they post if it matters that its on The Wright stuff or in the Daily Mail etc.

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:34:54

I agree Sparkling but the fact is many will not especially if posting when upset/stressed which many do.

Sparklingbrook Mon 25-Apr-16 19:38:37

I do think as adults everyone should be aware that the internet is not a safe place though. We warn our children about not putting stuff on the internet all the time.

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:40:43

Agreed, but I must admit I was still mildly surprised that I'd been screenshotted in the Mail! grin

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:42:32

And I don't think I've ever actually seen that before - a screen shot of a post, that is.

Mumsnet is quoted but that seems to be a new one.

I could be wrong of course.

Matthew Wright and The Daily Mail screenshot MN a lot. sad

People suggested we all have very sweary nicknames to combat that. grin

I'm intrigued as to what the "story" was now!
I've often wondered wether journos at least contact the members who's threads they pinch.

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:47:15

Not in my case - it was about disliking my friends child, still on AIBU (but PLEASE don't up it!)

VertigoNun Mon 25-Apr-16 19:48:38

I saw that in the DM. How did your friends react?

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:49:05

what? confused]

If you don't want it upped you can easily ask for it to be deleted to protect your privacy.

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 19:51:08

Bit late for that Fanjo! grin

No, I'm not concerned from a privacy POV, I just don't want the whole 'you terrible person, you' start over!

FranksBobot Mon 25-Apr-16 19:52:13

Ahh I know the one, didn't realise DM had picked it up angry

Hi all,
Thanks for raising this, we certainly hope it wasn't too upsetting to be quoted in the papers, and are now going to see what you wrote...
We can certainly raise the matter of a warning with our glorious leaders but we'd guess that it's really just a fact of modern life that anything we say can be screenshotted as news.
<feels paranoid at having said 'our glorious leaders'>

Aye be savvy not numpty

<strides around with placard>

(Not v catchy though is it?)

Sparklingbrook Mon 25-Apr-16 19:58:42

Have we not learned anything from Penis Beaker?

DonkeyOaty Mon 25-Apr-16 20:00:42

Naw. Nope. Nada. Nowt.

FanjofortheMammaries Mon 25-Apr-16 20:02:48

We could tag all our posts with #boycottthedailymail?

FanjofortheMammaries Mon 25-Apr-16 20:03:42

Or worse

Thebrowntrout Mon 25-Apr-16 20:06:30

Well, in fairness not all of us were around, or read, penis beaker.

Sparklingbrook Mon 25-Apr-16 20:07:34

I never read it. I opened it tutted and hid it. grin I am still not convinced it was even true but the DM seemed to like it.

LilacSpunkMonkey Mon 25-Apr-16 20:08:49

Can't see me being screenshotted or quoted with my name!

grin
