The MNHQ post and the thread don't address the points raised here.

When the Red i know EXACTLY what you mean about the Guardian comments board I got targeted on there in the summer of last year by a certain poster (i even remember his username) basically he was slut shaming me. There was a lovely poster on there who stuck up for me though. I remember her user name too. smile

She will be back Yougotbale (well if she chooses to come back). She has been suspended for a week.

paper I haven't seen the thread you are talking about, and this thread is really, really not about you.

I think Eldritch's reminder about it ultimately being a commercial site is an excellent one to have in mind (I often lose sight of it), and part of why I fear Debris may be right and that MN's brand of feminism may only be of the variety that doesn't scare the advertisers horses. It's a pity because I thought that the site was edging towards something really good by not tolerating the posting of rape myths etc.

The naming of the misogyny of the goady ones by MNHQ would be a truly radical act - but it's not a fight they signed up for. And judging by their treatment of the rad fems on here, it's not one they are likely to leap into wholeheartedly. I guess even if they only do the bare minimum they need to to control the trolls the site will still have value as a female dominated site - but I will be quite disappointed because I think this could be a real opportunity to make this a really woman positive general site, as opposed to one that is centred on feminist politics.

When you look at how the wider public perceives MN it is usually 'OMG mums talk about sex' or 'Oh yes that site wot is full of feminist harridans.' MNHQ might as well become full-on feminist harridans by clamping down on goaders because that is how they are largely perceived anyway, the site would be a nicer place for it, and it wouldn't drive away the majority of posters, if any.

No, you weren't. Unless you're outing yourself as Justine MN, you can't give AF right to reply.

This thread is not about you being sore that you got disagreed with. It's about AF. It's really unpleasant to derail it with a grudge.

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:49:54

No I was just giving both places the right of reply, and being open in my response

Not complaining that no one agreed with me in the slightest.

LRD tbh I have no idea whether you are correct and it wasn't about me or I am.

You were however discussing Mumsnet HQ's approach to troll hunting. not entirely sure how pointing out that troll hunting can genuinely upset a real poster is off topic regardless of the reason.

troll hunting is not pemitted. neither are personal attacks. as Lucio did you are welcome to report either (or both) me or my both if you feel either applies to what I said

Yougotbale Thu 24-Oct-13 20:46:26

Will anyfucker be back? She was always the funniest poster by far. I liked her style

Well, I may be a cynic - I just think it is extremely rude to simultaneously complain about threads-about-threads when you're incorrect, and to start a covert attack on someone who can't defend themselves.

EarthMither Thu 24-Oct-13 20:40:13

Indeed LRD - a cynical person might even say that hurt feefees are a tried and tested method of derailing.

DebrisSlide Thu 24-Oct-13 20:39:53

Brilliant post, FairPhyllis.

I do think MNHQ have decided on their brand of feminism, largely. And I understand, from a commercial pov, why it's more of a not scaring the horses and empowerfulising women ilk.

Erm ... if you didn't want to make a thread about a thread you should stop doing it!

I'm sorry you're upset but actually, I find it pretty upsetting you've decided to come on here, on a thread about a poster who cannot defend herself, to complain because no-one agreed with you.

I've not even see the thread but your attitude is pretty out of line.

LurcioLovesFrankie Thu 24-Oct-13 20:32:47

See my post on the porn thread - I did indeed jump (wrongly) to the conclusion that you were an MRA goader and report on that basis. I now accept that I was wrong in making that assumption. However, I don't apologise for a moment for thinking the views you have espoused on that thread are utterly indefensible.

EarthMither Thu 24-Oct-13 20:32:38

Paperlantern, with all due respect this thread is about a much bigger problem than one individual and their hurt feelings.

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:29:45

maybe your right. but it sure has taken the wind out of my sails and really upset me. really highlights why the troll hunting rules and don't about another thread about a thread are in place

Eh?

What porn thread, paper? There are loads of them.

I'm really sure no-one is talking about you.

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:24:42

SabrinaMulFUCKERJjones Wed 23-Oct-13 23:31:14

There's a live one on the porn thread....

Goady Fuckers. Down with that sort of thing.

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:21:41

I was the only one posting on the porn thread going against the tide at that time

BuffytheAnyAppleFucker Thu 24-Oct-13 20:20:54

Don't be upset paper, it really wasn't about you.

wordfactory Thu 24-Oct-13 20:19:14

paper what on earth makes you think anyone is discussing you?

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:18:47

Only person disagreeing with the majority on the porn thread. It's about as disingenuous as the poster make a shit joke about pearl neacklaces an denying it when it cauused offence.

Whether is was or wasn't about me. But the fact I could read that it was me and be upset by it underlines why tollhunting and posting on a thread about a thread isn't on

BuffytheAnyAppleFucker Thu 24-Oct-13 20:14:36

No paper, I think you have misunderstood. This thread wasn't about you. You fall into the camp of genuine poster who holds some views that many of us disagree with on one subject. The goaders and trolls are really different. I think, anyway. you're not, are you?

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:08:19

It is exactly why troll hunting shouldn't happen, report a troll fine. But actually you've upset areal person

paperlantern Thu 24-Oct-13 20:07:00

I've posted this on the porn thread because I am upset it appears you have been posting about someone, (me?) from the porn thread

sad sad sad sad sad
Sorry I feel totally devastated. I just read that thread from beginning to end. It doesn't name me specifically but it's pretty horrific.

A safe place for women to express an opinion you've got to be fucking kidding me. that's disgusting, I had no idea what you were saying because genuinely I was finding the debate on this thread interesting. I posted at night last night because I have kids during the day.

that's the kind of hypocrisy that gives feminism a bad name. I've reported, but because Mumsnet apparently only moderate at night the attacks on whoever the poor soul was will probably remain

MNHQ have been pants on this.
