It seems we are not allowed to speak about anything negative elsewhere. Please do not speak badly of Tricky Dicky and co.

Did MN ever come back to say why they're deleting it?

Allice Sat 03-Jan-15 20:54:32

I need to know who tricky dicky is!

aermingers Sat 03-Jan-15 20:54:53

I would be interested to hear...

IAmOnMyBike Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:11

I can't tell you sadly, if someone sets up a fb page you can maybe join there and find out.

OhShittingHenry Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:28

Really surprised at that decision. Would have been easy enough to zap the offending posts and maybe alter the title - I don't think anyone sensible really wanted to belittle the parents or the baby but the rest of it definitely needs and warrants further comment and scepticism.

I am so annoyed! Was reading the last page of the new thread then my iPad battery died- came back and it's gone!

Rebecca2014 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:41

Someone set up a facebook page and post link here.

curiousgeorgie Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:47

I was hoping someone would start a thread. I can't believe no response from MNHQ.

Disgusting.

That page is scamming people.

DancingDays Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:54

MN just deleted, no logical explanation.

IDontDoIroning Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:58

Count me in

LilMissSunshine9 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:55:59

No they deleted it with no further response - censorship is rife nowhere can anything be debated or talked about without it being censored. No wonder that person starting posting on the actually fundraising page

IgnoreMeEveryOtherReindeerDoes Sat 03-Jan-15 20:56:25

Bollocks it got zapped just after I posted

AcrossthePond55 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:56:27

Wrapped because it wasn't 'in the spirit of MN'.

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 03-Jan-15 20:56:28

Don't do FB, who is Dicky?

LilMissSunshine9 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:03

I would love it then admin can delete tricky dickys posts and ban him from the page too

WannaBe Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:25

someone should. with screen shots. and someone should be on twitter etc urging people not to donate to something which appears not to be above board.

Remember how quickly mn'ers were able to spread the word re riven?

what mn hq seem to be forgetting is that when if this all blows up and the authorities etc become involved the media will also potentially be interested that people were trying to question the validity of this on their site and were prevented from doing so.

asmallandnoisymonkey Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:31

God I hope so. What a total farce - MN HQ have really dropped the ball with this. It's a bit like silencing the dissent. Considering the utter tripe, weirdness and specific nastiness on this site I thought that thread was mild. Looks like it's ok to snipe at Katie Hopkins though - just not a set of new parents with a dodgy friend scamming money off people?

*doesn't get it*

LilMissSunshine9 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:32

Wonder how he would like it being censored all the time

iamtheeggman Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:41

I think it's a shame that some people decided to make negative and personal comments about the people involved. This is why the thread Got deleted. It was a real and very important discussion going on about potentially fraudulent activity.The topic of crowdfunding is also very topical. I think this was a very bad call by mnhq and they should have cleansed the thread post by post.

AcrossthePond55 Sat 03-Jan-15 20:57:41

Now let's all play 'naice'!!

Whereisegg Sat 03-Jan-15 20:58:04

That deletion seemed weird tbh.
Really couldn't see the need.

IAmOnMyBike Sat 03-Jan-15 20:58:08

Maybe one of those blank face accounts Dicky blocked could set something up?

youngcynic Sat 03-Jan-15 20:58:29

I'll certainly join a facebook page.
