The threads on this site recently have been about as interesting as watching paint dry on a summer's day.

Time and time again MNHQ take down any thread that is worth reading Any posting that engages in debate away from a centre left/ or further left learning is deleted. The only political postings that seem to be allowed to stay are anything calling Tories such as Scum Evil , disgusting.

This is deemed far game and points to the politically nature of this often out of touch one sided and increasingly boring and bland site !

Hey ho i have expect some poster to report me to MNHQ and get this thread removed.

If you want bland and meaningless debate go to NET MUMS.

Half expect someone to report me to MNHQ !

Usually because they are 99% trolls though.

I don't think MNHQ run amok deleting threads willy-nilly. A deletion only happens if there's strong suspicion of trolling or previously banned posters acting up.

I'm on lots of interesting threads at the minute. Lots of debate and controversial views and interesting discussions. MNHQ aren't really ones for deleting threads for no reason.

I disagree.

'Time and time again MNHQ take down any thread that is worth reading'

What a load of bollocks. Its usually because it s troll/Pbp. They tend to let most run unless they dissolve into slanging matches.

Absolutely ridiculous. But the OP knows that already.

MNHQ can do whatever they like. It's their site.

If you think it's bland and boring then start some interesting threads....

"Hi everyone, I've noticed that threads started by GF get taken down by MNHQ, so I'm going to be a GF and start a thread and just dare anyone to report me to MNHQ, so ner ner ner"

If I recall there were at least 14 IndyRef threads. There were so many Brexit threads they started a new section.

These were all political and represented all sides.

There are plenty of Tory MNers. It's nonsense to suggest they all get deleted.

If you haven't found any recent threads interesting start one yourself. Perhaps a bit less goady and more interesting than this one.

Good evening
Can we help with anything?
Rest assured "all the interesting threads" don't get pulled.
We delete very few threads lightly, as we appreciate the time folk put into posting.

ON the contrary we believe there are shed loads of interesting discussions - Depends on your interests, non?
