Maybe I am just too damn nosy...

AgentZigzag Sun 28-Aug-11 12:30:53

Are you talking about any in particular? <<nosey>>

Empusa Sun 28-Aug-11 12:33:08

I always wonder that, especially when it's a poster who is usually very reasonable!

mumwhatnothing Sun 28-Aug-11 12:46:43

Any and all messages. I hate not knowing what someone said to get up mumsnets nose. Also, the ones deleted by the poster themselves. I wish they would PM me before deleting so I can read them grin

Many seem to be posts that are accuse people of faking; as well as posts that the posters ask to be withdrawn because they suspect they may have posted on a thread started by a faker.

The rest tend to be in the 'Why dont you fuck off?' category.

the only one I've had deleted was when a joke I made about someone potentially being a troll didn't come across as hilariously as I'd hoped blush

I steer well clear of the subject now!

ppsst MAtt & Zonked, I think HQ like to capitalise themselves. Ahem.

mumwhatnothing Sun 28-Aug-11 13:06:28

lol. I know I am too nosey....everyone tells me so. I just feel I have missed out on something juicy. Are there really that many fakers/ trolls on here?

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

If you want to find out, you can always put the thread address into Google, and when the thread comes up in the results, click on the "Cached" version.

If the "cache" coincides with a time when the deleted comment is still visible (and has not been over-written), you will be able to read it.

Makes one think about writing things on MN, doesn't it?

P.S. Use Google's "advanced search" page; there's a box for searching within a certain site or domain.

The Google cache manoeuvre is how I know who Xenia is supposed to be.

Hoto Sun 28-Aug-11 13:23:56

ooh CSI Plu - v clever grin

crazynanna Sun 28-Aug-11 13:27:39

I have seen a thread 4 or 5 pages long where a one poster's (can't remember who) every single post was deleted by Mumsnet grin I would have loved to have read those!

plupervert Sun 28-Aug-11 13:34:13

grin at CSI. See, some forensic tools are available to all of us!

If they told you they'd have to shoot you! smile

PinotsWolefCubs Sun 28-Aug-11 14:03:07

I was deleted once.

REBEL.

Pinot grin

I must try harder as have never been deleted.

I love the cache search idea - although up until the op mentioned it I didn't care that much. grin

Normally when every post of a poster has been deleted it's because, the person is a troll, they have been banned for trolling or a poster has left for some reason and has specific and real need for all posting history to be deleted.

Pagwatch Sun 28-Aug-11 14:20:53

I have only been deleted a few times. But I am normally quite dull nice.

BecauseImWorthIt Sun 28-Aug-11 14:23:32

Being deleted for being nice seems a tad harsh, Pag.

Pagwatch Sun 28-Aug-11 14:24:44

I know!

Tee2072 Sun 28-Aug-11 14:37:26

I recently asked for MNHQ to delete something I had written because I realized I had no wish to speak to the poster I had replied to.

I wish I could hide the poster.
