It's an ad hominem, a direct insult I guess (although not a really awful one).

You can attack the message but not the (wo)man is the rule I live by.

In your defence I have seen far worse!

I am a self-avowed pompous ass.

Interested to hear what they say - I've just seen some poor OP called a "f***ing selfish b*tch" on a thread.

I'd quite like to lock posting horns with someone whose top insult is "pompus *" - I could call you a popinjay and slap you with a fan or something?

I was deleted for saying someone was a patronising arse. I guess it was because the person I said it to reported me. What a silly billy she was.

personal attack?

Were you starting a thread to call another MNer a pompous ass? Cos that'll get you deleted. <prays it wasn't me>

I'm surprised they haven't been in touch. I hear they normally email you a spanking!

Did the pompous ass in question pehaps report the thread?

HecateQueenOfWitches Wed 01-Dec-10 17:20:58

oh, sorry, it was posts on a thread, not starting a thread to call someone a pompous ass?

Yeah, it'll come under personal attack. Someone reported you.

Bloody hell though, pompous ass is really nothing compared to what I've seen people get called on here!

Someone is clearly very sensitive grin

was in the MW thing? (not midwife)

because if so, then i also note that the subject/thread the non-midwife person was referring to is also not up there in the topic of the day anymore either.

if i'm barking up completely the wrong tree, then

as you were

If you are reported, it shouldn't automatically follow that your post gets deleted. Surely MNHQ use their judgement to determine whether a complaint is reasonable. If someone is being a bit over sensitive, then MNHQ should allow the post to stand

Its annoying mary but I really wouldn't let it bother you. I don't think that op was authentic anyway. Its a contentious subject, always gets people going, I'm sure it was posted just to cause a ruck.

So you can call someone a







but not

pompous ass
