The one about social services and 19 month old? I've tried to Google the thread, it normally comes up, but it doesn't. I know HQ commented and didn't say troll so just curious.

Here it is

Sorry to sound thick, but I don't quite get it. Are they saying she's a troll or not? I'm confused

What difference does it make. The thread's gone.

I hope it was a troll sad

I didn't read it. I clicked on it thinking it sounded awful and the poster would need help. It was gone, but I don't understand the message, it's not saying it's a troll it's saying the poster should ask for RL help.
Or have I got this wrong?
I never saw the post so I don't know what happened

Reading the last line about "seeking real life support" it sounds like suicide was threatened. MNHQ policy is to delete such threads.

I don't understand the deletion message at all
The thread was v upsetting

MermaidTears Fri 26-Aug-16 23:13:48

That is dry upsetting. My heart goes out to her and I hope she gets help she needs.
No idea what it was but it sounds distressing.

MermaidTears Fri 26-Aug-16 23:15:09

Very* not dry

I hope it was a troll too. Very unsettling

What was the thread about?

I think they were hedging their bets and the deletion message was giving OP some places she could get support if she was for real. If it is a first post it must be hard to know if a poster is trolling for kicks or just unwell.

Can anyone message me what had happened? If it's that bad I also hope troll then.

The thread needed to go because if she wasn't a troll she clearly had serious mental health issues. I suspect the deletion message was aimed at both possibilities.
