to think MNHQ should not send you details (incl. email address) of the person who has reported your post

Have been dwelling on this for a week or so now. I had a post reported blush, following which I received an email from MNHQ which they asked me a question, and below the email was, what I assume is the system generated notification MNHQ receive when the red alert button is clicked.

Through this I was informed of the username and registered email address of the person who reported my post.

Is this what normally happens when posts are reported? Because it has put me off reporting posts if my information is given out.

I think giving out the username is bad enough - as this could cause retaliation through the boards. But personal email is definitely unacceptable - with this information you can find out the persons real name (i.e. by searching for them on Facebook via their email address).

Now I am not vindictive or even too nosy, so I did nothing with the information I received. But other people might.

AIBU to think it's not on for MNHQ to divulge such information?

Surely it was a mistake.

BettySwollux Fri 28-Aug-09 22:33:02

YANBU, this was prob a mistake but you should contact MNHQ and make sure they know about it.

Good job yer not a beeeatch.

I imagine it was a mistake. Can you email them or put it on site stuff? Don't know if they read AIBU!

Fiver Fri 28-Aug-09 22:33:33

Sounds like a mistake. Naughty mumsnet.

DorotheaPlenticlew Fri 28-Aug-09 22:33:48

I cannot inagine they would do it intentionally

BitOfFun Fri 28-Aug-09 22:37:17

Ooooh, at least you'll know who to pie in the face at the Christmas meet-up grin

PacificDogwood Fri 28-Aug-09 22:37:24

<<note to self to never report anything, ever>>

Doodlez Fri 28-Aug-09 22:37:24

I don't recall being told when any of my posts have been reported. Sounds like a genuine mistake.

TheEgoHasLanded Fri 28-Aug-09 22:37:51

i wouldn't have started this thread that's for sure, why not just take this up with MNHQ.?

TrillianAstra Fri 28-Aug-09 22:38:30

I dn't think I've ever been reported so woulnd't nko, but want to knwo what is supposed to happen here. Not that, I assume.

paisleyleaf Fri 28-Aug-09 22:39:34

FODM, see if it happens again with BALD reporting this post.

Pandoraneedsbugs Fri 28-Aug-09 22:39:55

i agree this isnt what MNHQ would do deliberately
Tis a genuine mistake

Someone will be along in a mo no doubt

FluffySaysTheDailyMailsShite Fri 28-Aug-09 22:40:25

I reported a post last week (it was a sales one, advertising a University in Latvia or somewhere), I was sent an email with thread on the bottom of it.

Pandoraneedsbugs Fri 28-Aug-09 22:40:56

Trillian - I have reported you loads of times

SlartyBartFast Fri 28-Aug-09 22:41:10

although this pandering to MNHQ isnt working - how about
MNHQ are Rubbish!

that might get them moving
