Cod asked for it to be deleted, quite angrily, on a tweet to MN. It's no secret. Something about it still being around hours after she reported it despite it breaking forum rules as it directly insulted her.

I didn't see the thread.

I was on Twigs thread when she came back to inform us how unintelligent and uncouth we all were for not missing her. It was just a typical flouncers thread .. until Justine popped up and then the proverbial hit the fan for a couple of months and MN literally exploded. There were people taking sides and people flouncing all over the place. We lost a lot of good posters (Come back MrsBadger, S&B isn't the same!) But it felt a bit like a much needed mass cull where MN royalty had become top heavy and needed trimming, and as they left (and most of their daft etiquette rules went with them) new posters were able to blossom.

Although some of the old guard still rule (see first paragraph) ;)

The reason Cod was angry was nothing to do with the Moldies thread. It was another thread where she was outed in her current username. Which was all my fault.

The moldies drama was exciting at the time but 5 years on it's all a bit meh -
I agree with the poster up thread however, who said it was a timely reminder to not get too involved with people on the net, this is not real life.
Log in, have a chat, laugh, moan, rant, be supportive, then log off & forget it all. Keep your distance & anonyminity.

The two are not mutually exclusive - it's perfectly possible to meet people/make friends here (and elsewhere online), but we should all be careful and not automatically assume everyone is 'nice' or honest.

spookysal, thats a bit stirring isn't it? I saw Cod's tweet and AFAIK it wasn't anything to do with the Mouldie thread. What's with the 'old guard' comment?

LtEveDallas Thu 15-Nov-12 10:09:29

Ahh, hadn't refreshed. Sorry, BIWI has already explained (But I stand by my stirring comment). There really is No Need.

You only get three wishes though, Chip...

Perhaps you could fashion some class of a lean- to.

spookysal Thu 15-Nov-12 10:39:57


Only stirring (in your opinion) because I mentioned Cod probably. How dare I?

Same old, Same old ... Yawn.

SpringHeeledJack Thu 15-Nov-12 10:49:17

I saw tweet

nowt to do with being insulting...she didn't want to be outed, which was fair enough

LtEveDallas Thu 15-Nov-12 11:00:23

No spooky, stirring because you stated that the Mouldie thread had been deleted because of cod, because the thread insulted her (which it didn't) - which it hadn't.

I would say the same if you had said the thread had been deleted because BIWI wanted it, or MaryZ, or Hully or Helen01020304.

Stirring because that isn't what happened, but for some reason you want people to believe it was.
