I've had a post deleted on the above thread timestamped 17.10.03. Just wondering why? I swore yes, but I didn't swear at anyone in particular. I made a hugely general comment about my 'haterz' that tied to no one in particular! So why the deletion? I'm just a little perplexed about which part of the guidelines I've contravened and some clarity would be appreciated!


InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 12:31:43

No one likes you that's why. Classic case of bullying grin

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 12:32:54

I'd do a contact HQ thing direct. Enforcement issues on threads get a bit messy and misunderstood, ime.

Fenton Tue 13-Nov-12 12:33:35

shock SP!

poor Beardy, even bullied by MNHQ and SP now sad

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 12:34:11

and what Fanjo said but was too polite to.grin

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 12:42:56

Don't be surprised if MNHQ just delete this without answering you daddy grin

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 13:08:53

They should just kick you off! Would save having to fuck about delegating you. grin

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 13:09:12

Deleating ffs

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 13:09:32

Deleting omg!

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 13:15:45

I'm sure it's just a matter of time until I'm kicked off here. I know that there's a OTW list and it'd be a safe bet that my name appears on it!

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 13:30:18

Nooo! Don't get rid of Daddyman. He makes the rest of us look good!grin

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 13:49:33

Cheers pan
It's nice to know my efforts to make y'all look good aren't going unnoticed! grin

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 13-Nov-12 13:59:58


I'm afraid we did read your post as a clear attack on an identifiable group of posters - that's why it was zapped.

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 14:13:27

oh yes, one must be careful about some groups of posters. Other groups are fair game, mind.

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 14:20:10

There is some right dicks on that sweary thread!

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 14:47:01

An identifiable group? Like who?!? I've pissed off a lot of people!

Let me think...

There was the dolphin punching thing.
The atheist vs atheist thing.
The hulk strap on thing.
The sweary thread thing.
The generally being an arse thing.

Are you keeping tabs on all those users and collecting them into an easily offended quiche? That's more than I do! I can't even remember the user names of people who I pissed off!

Honestly! You make a joke about people having no sense of humour and people have no sense of humour about it...

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 14:49:16

And does this mean that the "PO" are a recognized faction within MN? Do they have a membership and a secret handshake? I thought they were just random people who see offence where none was intended!

Tee2072 Tue 13-Nov-12 14:50:45

Did you mention the "M" word, Daddyman?

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 14:51:30

Oh and I forgot, I was pissing off vegetarians too yesterday.

Was it them? The broccoli munching, butternut squash loving, lettuce eaters!

Fenton Tue 13-Nov-12 14:53:46

I've remembered I think, you mentioned pissing off F******ts, (not fascists btw) - perhaps MNHQ thought you meant you did this deliberately even though you meant it just happens?


WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 14:54:38

<sees a spreadsheet-updating activity going on..>

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 14:59:12

I mentioned that I had haterz and that they were a humourless bunch of cunts so I didn't care and fuck them

I didn't name any names or point to any threads. I didn't say that I deliberately antagonize people, because I don't. Some people just don't appreciate me and my unique view of life.

<waits for this post to go poof>

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 15:00:16

Why don't you just email HQ and discuss it? Trying to bash it out in site stuff seems a bit provocative really, if you want to keep off the OTW list, don't you think? A bit if discretion if there has been a misunderstanding can make it much easier to resolve: nobody has to start grandstanding or entrench themselves because it's being played out in public. It would also avoid drawing people into a guessing game of "Did you mean me? You did, didn't you?" etc.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:01:07

And Tee, I never mention the "M" word. She-who-must-not-be-named will remain unnamed by mine own sweet lips.

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 15:01:35

what's the OTW list please? And am I on it, yet?

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:03:26

BOF I don't know who these people are so how could I provoke them?!? I don't carry grudges across the boards and I only tend to remember the people I like chatting with or who amuse me!

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:04:26

Pan it's the one to watch list, and yeah you're probably keeping me company on it grin

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 15:05:34

It's the posters on repeated warnings and tickings-off, Pan. If you get deleted a lot, and HQ have to spend a lot of time on wrist-slapping emails, it's safe to say you're on the One To Watch list, and maybe need to modify how you post etc. if you don't want to find yourself myseriously logged out one day. But if that doesn't apply, then no, I wouldn't have thought you are.

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 15:06:01

Ta Daddyman - but that just feeds into my already-problematic exhibitionist fantasy! Such crosses we bear.

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 15:06:42

I don't know what you've said, Beardy- but I'm sure HQ will explain if you email them.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:06:56


WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 15:08:26

thanks BOF - but yes, such threads as these just get HQ needlessly ticked off a bit prob.
Mail them and suggest this one is zapped as well? I see tears before bedtime.smile

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:09:46

ooops, sorry. wrong thread

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 15:10:54

Maybe not BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo ....

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:10:56

Late night cuevo? Go have a lie down.

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 15:13:17

Oh shit there's a otw list! No one told me. <grumpy> well I'm on there I guess sad

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:16:05

I don't intend to tick anyone off, I'm just curious! And I don't like trying to email on my phone, it's a [insert personal attack on phone here].

As far as I'm concerned this is a nice friendly chat between the lovely Rowan who always says hello nicely, and myself. And then you vultures come circling around to check for corpses! grin

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 15:21:54

I doubt I'm on the one to watch list.

I'm too good and well behaved to be on it.

<polishes MNHQ prefect badge>

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:23:42

I decline to respond to you sp on the grounds that my answer may be deleted...

AnyFucker Tue 13-Nov-12 15:24:13

If you don't want to attract vultures, don't leave a corpse in the middle of the road

If this helps, your goading post will have been removed for it's shit-stirring potential, as will this one.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:26:40

I never goad. I cha-cha, I samba, and I'll even tango, but I never goad!

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 15:28:31

What is it your trying to say daddy

I'm Helen and Olivias favourite. They even share their gin with me.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:32:27


BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 15:34:06

Rowan is always super-polite, even to dickheads. It's kind of her trademark. MNHQ have special training sessions in grace under fire. I think they should roll them out across the whole site; either that, or give me the Hide Poster button grin.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:35:31

No to the hide poster button! No one would ever read my posts again! shock

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:36:34

BOF, god, I always hated the idea of hide poster. I have ranted about it and opposed it at every turn. lately, I have come round to the idea. now, I would fucking love to be able to hide certain posters. my life would be so much happier and less stressful.

it would be good for my health.

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 15:37:23

We would beardy but only to find next sweary thread grin

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 15:38:51

No one would speak to me either. They would all be hiding SPsFanjo

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 15:42:52

I got deleted for homophobia recently. Hoh yes, big ol homophobe me. Even tho I pointed out ON THE THREAD that I was being satirical and why...

hth, Beardy

AnyFucker Tue 13-Nov-12 15:43:28

Rowan is a very nicely brought-up lady. She would never be rude.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:49:33

I love Helen, she always replies to my reports properly.

WrathdePan Tue 13-Nov-12 15:55:21

Helen is my keyworker. I am v proud of that.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 16:10:47

I'm sure that all the HQ staff are lovely. If I was going to the meet up I'd buy them some gin. But I'm not, so I won't.

BornSour Tue 13-Nov-12 16:29:51

I'm not getting why this couldn't have been done by email. HQ have always been happy to explain any deletions & stuff if you contact them. One deletion should not a thread make.

AnyFucker Tue 13-Nov-12 16:30:58

That wouldn't be attention-seeking or goady enough though, BornSour. smile

FancyPuffin Tue 13-Nov-12 16:34:10

I love Rowan ever since she was a jolly good egg when a bunch of us were pissing about.

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:35:55

Rowan is my bff

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 17:11:25

I love Rowan because she's never deleted me for being annoying unlike some other HQers I could mention...

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 17:32:19

Oh fine line beardy fine line..... You name will be highlighted on list soon!

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 20:02:08

This is interesting. I got deleted for calling no one in particular a humourless cunt and another poster is naming others as racists and it's left to stand. How is mine a personal attack and that one isn't?

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 20:04:51

That whole thread will go, I reckon. To protect the OP from rightful derision. Not In The Spirit is my prediction.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 20:07:22

umm, Ive reported that post.

so, I suspect have others. posts dont go poof within seconds.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 20:11:36

Yeah, but there have been a shit load of posts since that one and HQ were sitting on it earlier.

I still want to know if someone reported mine...

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 20:13:13


BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 20:13:46

probably, since it was deleted.

mnhq probably have better things to do that hang around on one thread. esp since the op has been taken to task.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 20:14:30

It's on that racism one in site stuff. Someone thinks that "mad as a box of frogs" is a racial slur against the French...
