........ you find a completely mad thread on here during your lunch break and look forward to seeing how it's developed when you get home, only to find it gone! I'm talking about the one from a manager who gave a member of staff compassionate leave in case her child was kidnapped. I was loving it.

Yep! Always happens

No I don't think it was a trolled - MNHQ deleted it because it kinda lost the plot grin

I'm dying to know

I missed the end too! Did the OP agree with others that her colleague was making it up to get time off? (Or something like that?)

The op never came back and we was having loads of fun playing with gifs

This is why I'd prefer threads to be locked not deleted. I always want to know what happened between my lunch time and home time moochings

The gifs were bloody hilarious!

I am choosing to believe the OP rampaged round there with Liam Neeson and a pitchfork to post thin crust pizza under their door. Yup. Pretty sure that's what happened.

Oh FGS, I came on to find out and wondered where it had gone! 😤

Does anyone know what we would have to do to convince MNHQ to consider freezing instead of deletion? It drives me mad and I cannot see any harm in us at least being able to read the rest after we put in time and effort to reply to the op in the first place. hmm

While I agree it can be v frustrating, I really can't see it working any other way. what about racists/discriminatory posts that upsets lots of people? or threads that protect someone (even a childs) identity? Your curiosity could get someone very hurt...

I'm currently really annoyed that there was apparently a 'my mother isn't actually my mother!' thread on here earlier on that got zapped. I actually DID have that happen to me (the classic 'SURPRISE! YOUR SISTER IS ACTUALLY YOUR MUM!' scenario) and really want to know what happened although I would probably have got all sucked in and felt like a total dick because I've never met anyone else that has had the same experience irl! I wish they'd just freeze them too, not get rid of them though. Pah.
