I'm just revisiting some old threads from earlier this year and a prolific poster that actively hated me has had all her posts deleted under various usernames. Does this mean she was a troll or just asked for her extensive history to be deleted?
Please help!?

Yes I often wonder about this too, can you request that if flouncing or something, like deactivating Facebook?

It means they asked for all their posts to be withdrawn, It doesn't mean they were a troll or even that they have left MN.

You can't ask it just because you want to, but I think some posters were outed or stalked and MNHQ deleted their entire past history (or in one case retrospectively name changed them). Some older threads look like Swiss cheese.

Lots of posters had their posts withdrawn after heartbleed and the hacker thing and something else, but I can't remember what that was. grin

Was just about to say same as usual - loads of posters who had their details leaked by Geoffrey had all their posts removed.

I have been stalked on here. Decided to keep all my posts as a big FY. I wrote nothing that i was ashamed of.

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:34:08

This is this year so before the hacker thing. I got to know her quite well and don't actually think she was a troll but she was offensive sometimes and very to the point--i really liked her but was.also scared shitless of her, just like a mum--

Maybe she was being stalked.

How can you be scared of someone on the internet?

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:41:05

Because she cut through a lot of my bullshit

AndNowItsSeven Sat 17-Sep-16 21:42:16

?

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:43:15

And really, you can't be scared of someone on the Internet? Um, yes you can and if doesn't make you a twat.

YellowShockedFace Sat 17-Sep-16 21:44:32

Hasn't the person you are talking about just had a name change (to a similar name)?

usual Sat 17-Sep-16 21:45:55

You can just turn the internet off or ignore people. If you are scared of people on the nternet maybe you should step away.

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:46:18

No idea. I've been off here a while and just revisited some old threads out of interest. And all her posts were gone

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:47:02

Are you trying to scare me wink

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:48:32

And I meant it in a fucking light Hearted way!!' I'm not having sleepless nights

usual Sat 17-Sep-16 21:50:23

If hate to think of you quaking in your boots whenever you saw her name grin

Sticking 2 fingers up at the screen works for me.

YoJesse Sat 17-Sep-16 21:52:08

No worries!! Anyone that sounds like my mum on here can give me the willies l! I just wanna know what her deal was.

Hi there YoJesse. If you have any concerns then do drop us a line at the usual address and hopefully we can put your mind at ease. In terms of these posts, we obviously are unable to give out any information on particular posters and our conversations with them, but there are many reasons why lots of posts by one poster may be deleted - most of them not at all sinister. Hope that puts your mind at rest.

Thanks Iona is that the contactus@mumsnet one or something else?

HenRah Wed 21-Sep-16 15:44:06

Usual is correct ... I'm probably not the poster but I had mine deleted after Geoffrey

MaddyHatter Thu 22-Sep-16 16:42:13

some had them withdrawn after geoffrey.

a number also had them taken down after the Samaritans purse thing.

YoJesse Thu 22-Sep-16 16:52:50

I don't actually know about either of those things. Was Geoffrey the hacker from 2013?
