Number daily mail.

Sorry if this has been done before but I've just noticed another story from the daily mail comes from a mumsnet. It's a relationship one and very sad and heartbreaking for the people involved. I assume they posted on mumsnet because they wanted a relatively anonymous place to express their sadness.
Almost every day a post seems to become a article on the mail online and I think it's appalling.

Not number daily mail mumsnet bloody autocorrect.

IRegretNothing Wed 04-Jan-17 14:32:43

Fuck sake dailymail!

Hillbilly71 Wed 04-Jan-17 14:33:26

Thought the same. Can't mumsnet claim some sort of copyright or anything??

Another Daily Mail reader complaining about the Daily Mail? confused

This is ridiculous.

If you think it's appalling, stop reading it.

Or is that a little too sensible?

Sorry if this has been done before

It has, about every ten seconds.


NEVER buy the DM.

if EVERYONE on MN did this instead of posting pointless moaning threads, it would stop

What a great idea. Oh wait...

Pencilplant Wed 04-Jan-17 14:38:52

Goodness been ages since I've posted on here I'd forgotten.
Obviously having read it I will now beat myself with a wet copy of Womans own!

I was making the point about the stealing of posts.

Pencilplant Wed 04-Jan-17 14:39:19

And sorry if this has been done before.

It isn't stealing. They do it because people read them. MN doesn't stop it.

TantrumsAndBalloons Wed 04-Jan-17 14:42:58

How is it stealing?

Ok it's lazy journalism but this is an open forum on the internet.

Anyone who thinks it's a "safe space" and no one will ever see it apart from us is delusional.
And no, there's no copyright on words typed on a chat forum confused

PigletWasPoohsFriend Wed 04-Jan-17 14:43:47

It's not stealing. MN is a public forum on the internet.

Fallonjamie Wed 04-Jan-17 14:45:06

I think one day we'll need a 'complaining about the DM lifting MN threads' topic as these threads are so frequent.

Pencilplant Wed 04-Jan-17 14:48:29

Oh well I guess the answer is never post just in case.

QueenLaBeefah Wed 04-Jan-17 14:51:35

MN has copyright so technically they could put a stop to it.

I would never post anything at all private now.

Sparklingbrook Wed 04-Jan-17 14:52:40

There is a thread about this probably once a week now.
MN is not a private place. It is the Samsung as posting anywhere else on the internet.
Dont want to be quoted in the DM then don't post it.

Sparklingbrook Wed 04-Jan-17 14:53:07

*same not Samsung grin

ClopySow Wed 04-Jan-17 14:54:53

It probably suits mumsnet to bring lots more new members to the site.

But yeah, it is really lazy journalism. Although i'm not sure i'd class daily mail staff as journalists.

WorraLiberty Wed 04-Jan-17 14:59:31

And I was making the point that as you're a Daily Mail reader, perhaps you should change your choice of newspaper, if you find it so appalling.

19lottie82 Wed 04-Jan-17 15:01:09

People need to understand that once you've posted something on the internet it is public property to be shared. It is NOT private.

loinnir Wed 04-Jan-17 15:01:21

This one? I think the thread has been pulled. I have noticed that relationship threads are often a lot less personal now and posters are rightly reluctant to provide the sort of detail they used to in the past

FarAwayHills Wed 04-Jan-17 15:03:29

This is awful, not only is the poor woman in the throes of a relationship breakdown she is now dealing with her personal business being in a national newspaper. The story is easily identifiable to all concerned and could make things a whole lot worse in a situation like this.

I get that it's a public forum but the whole point is that people post anonymously sometimes as a last resort or in desperate need of advice and they shouldn't be subjected to national exposure like this. No one knows how low or desperate a person is feeling and I seriously hope one day the DM and Mumsnet don't regret allowing this to continue.

mummydawn07 Wed 04-Jan-17 15:04:55

don't read the daily mail so can't say I've ever come across any threads that are on here, don't really read any papers for that matter lol

TaliZorahVasNormandy Wed 04-Jan-17 15:08:23

Not good for the poster if her hubby reads that paper and can identify himself. He could get nasty after that.

dingdongthewitchishere Wed 04-Jan-17 15:08:51

Just make sure you change your user name before posting something really private (or do not post at all). Stories being picked up are nothing new, people just seem to be slightly more aware of it.

I read the Daily Mail online, it's as entertaining as this forum. I've never felt ashamed about it. Most people around me read it too it seems, start discussing a story at work, and most people will confirm they have already read it.
