when folk didn't report, but just dealt with it on the thread..........and it was all just OK and folk got the spirit of MN.

I yearn for it. It used to be all green fields around here....

TheLadyinTheRadiator bit my head off, Trills was TrillianAstra, LaQueen was LeQueen, UsualSuspect3 was UsualSuspect, BOF was ABitOfFun and ExPatInScotland spoke sense to all and sundry. Plus on the odd occasion Cod would tell you your were a nob.

<sigh, sob, sigh> <I have been here too long>

people only report if you say something really rude to them. I am all for people disagreeing with me that's fine but resorting to personal attacks then what do you expect?

Oh I agree with you <goes all misty eyed>

That was my first deleted post...

I never had an 'A', but apart from that, yeah, it was all groovy grin.

soz about that BOF. I have to say though it rather suits you, tops of the whole thing like a particularly jaunty hat.

All you soooo are part of the family now, you also need to strive to have a whole thread deleted, get a warning and finally a ban and you will truly have arrived

Don't you find though that the people who are quick to complain about being insulted are the ones who have been insulting on a regular basis, not just on here but in real life too?

If people can't take the crap then they really shouldn't be dishing it out themselves cos eventually people snap.

Nah, I prefer it now. I've been here on & off since MN was very teeny indeed way back in 2000. I used to "know" in the virtual sense almost everyone who posted. Then it got all cliquey & there were those who tended to wade in as the voice of reason, which was all well & good, but it tended to close down discussion.
Now, MN is huge & less personal. I think the MN team have a fairly good idea of reported stuff that should come off & when it shouldn't. They're not perfect all the time - but then neither are we! grin

All the webchat today with MNHQ was interesting and gave some pointers as to what was and what wasn't OK insult wise!
