Does Mumsnet delete user accounts without warning? A couple of weeks ago I couldn't' get into my account so set up a new one. Today I was logged out, my password doesn't work and none of the 8 (!!!!!) new password links I've requested have arrived to my account (for either account).

Does that mean my accounts have been deleted?

Sounds like you have been banned, What did you do?

IamIamtheOP Thu 05-May-16 20:41:28

I don't think I did anything!

We never ban bona fide posters without warning.
If you're new and you've come on to MN purely to be inflammatory then we will promptly show you the door
HTH

Vardyparty Thu 05-May-16 20:48:45

That's you told, OP.

Or have you been shown the door again grin

IamIamtheOP Thu 05-May-16 20:49:26

I had no warning on either account, and I don't think I was rude or inflammatory on either. I had had one account for a long time and the other was new just because I couldn't get in on the original account. confused

Ouch!

That was harsh.

I thought it was all peace & love in the Towers? grin

Goady fuckers don't get warnings.

And multiple account holders who are goady fuckers get kicked to the kerb quickly.

<waves to Olivia and offers [gin]>

IamIamtheOP Thu 05-May-16 20:57:15

I wasn't goady. And my accounts weren't linked as I used different email addresses (just in case the problem with not getting reset emails was with the email provider). I only set up a second account because the first one stopped letting me in.

HairySubject Thu 05-May-16 20:58:19

I had a second account once as I couldn't remember my password to name change.
HQ very nicely explained it wasn't on and asked which account I would like deleted.

DustyBustle Thu 05-May-16 20:58:26

Not the answer I was expecting to see, it's usually check your mail boxes sorry about that etc,

Lol, wonder what they've done
I saw one thread go poof really quickly today

<ponders>

Can you remember what your names were on the other two accounts OP?

PresidentOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 05-May-16 21:00:57

It absolutely is peace and love in the towers but at the same time, we try and keep this place as Troll Free as we can.
Do email us again, OP, if you think we can help, won't you?
Thanks

<resists asking if the op is a very attractive 40 year old>

DustyBustle Thu 05-May-16 21:04:45

grin that's the one I thought of too Maryz.

LilacSpunkMonkey Thu 05-May-16 21:05:28

No, no, Maryz that would make me the OP.

Well, 42.

And not very attractive.

Ok, not me then.

I have been banned twice without warning.

Weirdly, on both occasions, it was instantly reversed when I pointed out that I wasn't guilty of anything but having an unpopular view.

IMO, the towers do whatever will keep the majority happy. Theoretically, a true-blue poster is never going to be someone they ban, therefore they would (when it came down to it) never need to inform someone first.

Maryz Thu 05-May-16 21:56:34

I was banned recently too.

Ironically because they thought I was Jeffrey [baffled] so I didn't take it personally grin

Anyone who is banned who didn't deserve it can just email and explain and rejoin.

Dvallin Thu 05-May-16 21:59:26

They thought you were Jeffrey Maryz !?

It must have been like that TV ad, ' there's millions of Jeffreys, all under one roof..' grin

DonkeyOaty Thu 05-May-16 22:03:12

Oh LORDY thanks for that earworm Dvallin angry grin

Would our OP like to share their previous noms de plume? pokes snake with a pointy stick

Maryz Thu 05-May-16 22:04:18

Yep, apparently there was confusion with IP addresses, about which I know nothing.

I thought it was very funny, when I realised the site hadn't shut down, I just couldn't get onto it.

DonkeyOaty Thu 05-May-16 22:05:18

Yikes Maryz.

WineOrSleep Thu 05-May-16 22:31:48

Can anyone else almost see the head tilt from olivia?! grin

UnderTheGreenwoodTree Thu 05-May-16 22:37:58

Just dying to know what OP did to get that response from Olivia grin

Aramynta Fri 06-May-16 09:38:32

Olivia, I can feel the tension right there. The tiltiest head tilt of all head tilts grin
