According to mumsnet the topic is exhausted. This thread will probably get deleted as well as they said no new threads on the topic should be opened hmm

RunMummyRun68 Sat 07-Apr-18 21:11:34

the insta mums will have complained to MNHQ.....this thread will also go

discussion closed down

because i guess theres nothing new to say.....yet!

I wondered if the instamums requested they be stopped at the meeting they had? Also there were two posters trying to derail the threads, rather successfully it seems now.

I wasn't trying to derail the threads, but you think what you like.

RunMummyRun68 Sat 07-Apr-18 21:22:00

what meeting buck

ABuckToothedGirlinLuxembourg Sat 07-Apr-18 21:25:25

It was mentioned on here by others, that some instamums were having a meeting with mumsnet. I don’t know anything other than that. But I think someone said it was last month? Not sure TBH

Does anyone remember the Pedlars threads from years back? Did Pedlars become a taboo topic on mumsnet?

RunMummyRun68 Sat 07-Apr-18 21:28:07

have been here ten years....not heard of pedlars

ABuckToothedGirlinLuxembourg Sat 07-Apr-18 21:28:54

I’ve bought from pedlars a few times! What was the issue?

miamimice Sat 07-Apr-18 21:31:50

There was a series of long threads about things Pedlars had for sale. They were pretty funny.

ABuckToothedGirlinLuxembourg Sat 07-Apr-18 21:32:53

I’ll have a look. smile

I said on the last thread, after MNHQ announced they were pulling it, that I wondered if they did it in part because of the meeting they were having with 'influencers' (to quote MOD when she mentioned the meeting on here). KateMumsnet said that it was actually the other way round ... that one of the things they wanted to discuss with the influencers were the repetitive discussion of them on here. Although the meeting had been arranged weeks ago, before the end of Instamums thread 2, i.e. well before threads no. 3, 4 & 5, so ....

KateMumsnet then said later that many of the Instamums are on here and are real people, her point being I think that personal attacks on them were therefore more pertinent. Except there hadn't been any personal attacks on the last thread, the one that got pulled. And the discussion wasn't fully repetitive, there were new points, including one I raised about gender stereotyping & feminism.

Really quite poor IMO that MN pulled the thread. And I still suspect it had a large part to do with the Instamums or their PRs not liking it, and/or MN worrying about having a negative image or it adversely affecting possible marketing collaborations with Instamums.

ssshhhh....keep the noise down. We aren't allowed to talk about those who can't be named.

Atalune Sat 07-Apr-18 22:15:53

Seriously. MN censorship?

Fuck sake.

MNHQ- what the actual fuck? The feminist board is consistently and repeatedly discussion the trans debate. And it goes on and on as it should. They don’t get shut down for go over old ground.

C’mon MNHQ, what the fuck?

PavlovaPrincess Sat 07-Apr-18 22:18:50

I agree with @FlyingBird and @Atalune

These threads were started partly because any kind of criticism towards the mums on IG, no matter how valid, was immediately shut down and the commenter most likely blocked.

Now it looks like it's started here on MN too...

HolyMountain Sat 07-Apr-18 22:21:01

I think all had been said that needed saying . The last thread was just repeating the same old things that had been said on the previous threads.

Progress has been made in getting IGer’s to state was they are being paid to promote and sell on their grid.

I don’t see what else is there to be discussed at the moment, we’re not the IG police .

FlyingBird Sat 07-Apr-18 22:27:45

@HolyMountain exactly, we're not the IG police. You think all had been said that needed saying, yet others were still enjoying the conversation. Who's policing who there?

Surely provided we don't make personal attacks, those of that want to should be able to chat on MN about a social phenomenon and well known instagrammers in the same way that other MNers talk about reality tv programmes or tweeters i.e. repetitively and incessantly

RunMummyRun68 Sat 07-Apr-18 22:28:20

maybe there are collaborations plans
mums net tried and tested.....maybe mums net product tests will be passed over to the instamums to test instead of us nobodies....can actually see that one happening actually

chicken2015 Sat 07-Apr-18 22:29:01

I think its more that converstaion should be allowed to go around in circles, it shouldnt be shut down. I personally think Its shocking that the thread was deleated.

chicken2015 Sat 07-Apr-18 22:30:18

I agree Flyingbird

miamimice Sat 07-Apr-18 22:32:59

I found the threads educational though and I find the whole Instagram dynamic fascinating in general. It was interesting to be able to talk to people who had a common interest in how it all worked. It's frustrating that there isn't a platform to have this conversation anywhere now.

FlyingBird Sat 07-Apr-18 22:34:33

@miamimice completely agree.

Atalune Sat 07-Apr-18 22:35:04

I think the threads should stand and if cady and Stella have been slipped some more dollar bills from gleam to dig in then so be it.

No personal attacks.

I’m still not clear on the issue of consent and children being used to sell. Is the money from all the gifted items placed in a trust??
