It's on the thread am I definitely miscarrying, please report posts as it's not allowing me to do so, I'm in tears reading them as I've not long lost a baby and the replies would have sent me over the edge xx

If I remember rightly from my admin days certain providers (aol for example) cause ip problems too so by banning that one IP address it can block more users.

minouminou I don't think it is as easy as checking IP addresses. There was a very sick troll a while ago now who I had conversations with MNHQ about, as did another Mumsnetter. I think MNHQ said that by using a different device/location a different IP address is generated. I'm not familiar with this area, but I think the suggestion was that if someone logged on in Starbucks under one account and then logged on in a library under another account on the same device, a different IP address would be generated. I may have got that wrong though.

I dodge start a thread (well 3 actually because phone went rogue on me) in site stuff if anyone wants to talk to MNHQ about it.

Perhaps the flag could be linked to specific, sensitive boards, so that if a post is reported on Miscarriage, Bereavement, Mental Health etc then it shows up as needing urgent attention.

I didn't see the comments but I assume they were revolting and I am so sorry for the OP of that thread that they saw them. Going on the reaction here, they must have been awful and it must have been very hurtful.

re flagging posts, I agree that it is a good idea to have a few categories, some treated as more urgent than others. Certainly a link to a petition is generally of very low priority, for example. Hopefully, and if the categories are well defined, people would choose correctly. Racist, disablist etc are perhaps slightly easier to allocate but how do you effectively grade offensiveness and stop people pressing the grade 1 nuke it now button over something that, objectively, is trivial, leaving it only for something like this-a comment that has plainly sickened all those who saw it?

Reported twice. About 20 mins ago, can't believe hey were up for so long. Definitely the worst most horrible thing I've read on these forums.

RandyRudolf Thu 23-Jan-14 13:46:23

The comments must have been bad because I've never seen such a strong reaction from MN members. This lot are pretty tough and can take about anything thrown at them most of the time!

Well done to those who reported and got the trolls deleted.

ChippingInWadesIn Thu 23-Jan-14 13:44:16

Yes, there needs to be a third category when we are reporting - one that is URGENT to flag up ones that need to go immediately and don't require any 'looking into'.

RandyRudolf Thu 23-Jan-14 13:44:01

I have just quickly looked through the thread and can't see anything vile, I think they have managed to delete such comments.
I haven't been following the thread but my heart goes out to the OP and anyone who has said horrible comments ought to be ashamed of themselves.

minouminou Thu 23-Jan-14 13:40:07

When I looked at the thread I was expecting some tactless/sanctimonious rubbish. What I did see actually stopped my breath for a moment.

Thought the OP handled it with a lot of class.

HauntedNoddyCar Thu 23-Jan-14 13:39:35

OneStep I reported it between the first and second posts appearing so probably about the same time as you.

Armadale thanks for that bit of info. It lends weight to the case. I might put something in site stuff.

Armadale Thu 23-Jan-14 13:34:49

Hi, I'm very glad I missed the vial comments..however, to haunted, there was a thread a few months ago (might have been up to a year) that was absolutely vile vile vile and it took about 3 hours for it to be deleted. At the time I suggested to MNHQ that we should be able to triage reporting so that anything hideous gets looked at first...MNHQ said they would bear it in mind but I never heard anything more. Please suggest it again to them, maybe it is just repetition we need to get action on this..

OneStepCloser Thu 23-Jan-14 13:33:16

I reported those messages within minutes of them being there, I actually reported twice hoping it might flag up to HQ quicker, 40 minutes is really too long for things like that to stay up. I know noits saw them and said it was ok, for other ops it might not be. Perhaps an urgent button needed?

HauntedNoddyCar Thu 23-Jan-14 13:27:52

That was 40 minutes it took to get that off there.

I wonder if there ought to be a klaxon option when something like that happens for the report to be looked at quickly. When it's clearly some fuckwit getting their jollies and there's no need to prevaricate. Big red exclamation mark on the report so MNHQ read it.

PansOnFire Thu 23-Jan-14 13:27:37

Done. Vile.

Topaz25 Thu 23-Jan-14 13:25:17

I also reported, they've been deleted now. I hope the posters were banned. How could anyone do that? I remember when I had a miscarriage I was really upset that my GP was tactless. Comments like that would have devastated me.

minouminou Thu 23-Jan-14 13:24:11

Will these sickos be followed up? Their IP addresses looked up, I mean.

stickysausages Thu 23-Jan-14 13:23:55

Done, they're gone now. But seriously!? Some people shouldn't be allowed the internet!

pigletmania Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:06

Reported too big hugs op flowers

Northumberlandlass Thu 23-Jan-14 13:22:02

The comments have been deleted.

Hogwash Thu 23-Jan-14 13:21:54

I think all their messages have gone now.

MoominsYonisAreScary Thu 23-Jan-14 13:21:54
