So ranting on here is a no no then MN?
We all vent our fury on here when we are having a shite day but why does someone's rant get deleted?

Is this about the bank thread? I went to skip to the next page and it was gone!

They said, it was because the title was beyond the pale.

It's the feckers who go running to report every post they don't like that annoys me.

Oh god.. I'll shush grin

What's the problem? They've given anyone who wants to take it up something else to rant about now wink They've done all ranters a favour. It's like they declared a ranting bank holiday!

This will be a ranting thread then
Rant away and drunk ranting is welcomed too

CharleneysWishWellingtons Fri 24-Jun-11 18:16:18

MN would be a very boring place without the rants!

Gooseberrybushes Fri 24-Jun-11 18:17:13

I was just getting into that thread! If it said "I'm off take out all the staff at my local HSBC with an AK47" then fine, pull it, but a venting post? It's fucking annoying when you have to speak to people who can't veer off a script. Better to get it out on here than implode through stress.

Ranting is good. Theraputic even.

Wishing death on people because you couldn't get your own way is neither. Comic exaggeration, fine. Hyperbole for effect, ok. Silly threats to show exasperation, can be funny. But the thread title missed those marks by miles.

I have nothing against the OP or her post - just the title - and I didn't report, but I do think there is a certain grace in admitting an error of judgement.
