Dear all,

We're pleased to say we have finally reached a settlement with Gina Ford (see here ). Just so you know, we are not at liberty to discuss the terms of settlement further so we won't be able to respond to any questions about that. We are confident, though, that we can all now draw a line under the affair and can move on.

We will continue to lobby hard for a review of the libel laws in this country with regard to websites, as we believe they haven't caught up with the way folks communicate on the net. We'll keep you posted on that.

Thank you everyone for your fabulous support in what's been an anxious time for us at MN Towers.

Best,
MNHQ

Fantastic new Mumsnet Towers and as you didn't get to enjoy your maternity leave-maybe you should have another baby!

I missed the whole problem/debate so I'm a bit in the dark but it looks like the powers that be at MN did a fantastic job of dealing with the situation and coming to an amicable solution. Thanks

Great news. Not too thrilled about legal costs (and assume you guys aren't either). I think there's got to be some legislation made to bring us into the 21st century.

WELL I thought MN was a far better place without her

CuriousSquid Wed 09-May-07 09:53:31

I was about to click on the red exclamation without reading and just noticed that it was justine starting the thread so it was ok lol

Hoorah!! and at paying her costs but its a good outcome.
