Like it says above.

I normally lurk

Cant believe how nasty some people are when you clearly feel embaressed enough and feel utterly stupid.

Should never have posted the truth, as it was used to tear strips off me and my big fat mistake.

Shame as there was some nice posters.

It happens to us all. You need to develop a thick skin and try not to take it personally - somehow confused

Don't go, this place is a treasure trove of help and advice when you need it or when someone needs you. You sometimes just need to think twice about what you are about to type smile

bigun1 Sun 21-Aug-11 20:05:23

ah love, which thread do you mean?

hug smile Do you need a brew

I have read that thread, and I am glad you found the ring, if only so that an innocent man going about his work is now in the clear.

I can't believe how quite you were to accuse the workman and report him. You have been flamed on the internet; that is nothing compared to what he would be going through having been falsely accused by you.

CarrieOakey Sun 21-Aug-11 20:06:41

Or maybe several wine smile?

Change your name if you want to stick around.

We've all been flamed - it is just one of those things.

Ineedacleaneriamalazyslattern Sun 21-Aug-11 20:07:55

Don't flounce, you did the right thing by going back on and admitting you were wrong. It took a lot to do that.
Some people did give you a hard time that you really didn't deserve.
You made a mistake and like someone said if you hadn't posted you might not have gone back and looked.

fedupofnamechanging Sun 21-Aug-11 20:08:07

Don't go. Everyone gets flamed at some point. Just tell them all to fuck off, because I'm sure at some point they've all done something wrong too.

If you desperately want to delete, then report your own post to MN and ask them to delete

booyhoo Sun 21-Aug-11 20:08:50

oh dont be such a drama queen. change your name and grow a thicker skin...or not. i'm not fussed.

peeriebear Sun 21-Aug-11 20:08:54

I don't think continuing to chastise on this thread is necessary belgo smile
OP, you were very brave to come back and finish the story and take the ensuing shitstorm. Namechange and stay smile

Ineedacleaneriamalazyslattern Sun 21-Aug-11 20:09:00

Oh but I do also agree that you were too quick to rush and report it. You need to take something away from this as well and not be so hasty in the future.

KenDoddsDadsDog Sun 21-Aug-11 20:09:44

Just ask for the thread to be removed. Lesson learnt.

bigun1 Sun 21-Aug-11 20:09:50

ah was it the ring thread, i didnt read it.

Its very very upsetting when you are flamed as some folk are vicious and very nasty. I dwell for a few days so i know what you mean.

Do what i do, change your name, lurk for a while then join threads that are friendly and nice. Ease yourself back in but dont go becuase for that one bad thread, you will have another 100 that are fun, will make you laugh and will offer you great tips & advice.

Its ok, honestly x

GypsyMoth Sun 21-Aug-11 20:09:52

Link?

Honeydragon Sun 21-Aug-11 20:12:18

You made a big mistake. You've admitted it. Sadly you cannot stop people being bitches. Perhaps one day they will post a thread on how they live their lives of mistake free wonderfulness, till then suck it up and keep posting they'll move on. And if they do make personal attacks report them.

CarrieOakey Sun 21-Aug-11 20:12:28

It's all about the wording namechange100 especially when you want to start a thread. Avoid accusations and try and ask questions might be a place to start.

<sucks teeth> Calm down. Seriously, you will look back on this and cringe. Take a break, and come back when you're feeling less sensitive.

belgo Sun 21-Aug-11 20:13:46

I totally agree with you the thread should be deleted, because the title is accusing an innocent man.

Honeydragon Sun 21-Aug-11 20:14:47

Bigun has good advice, and if you do nc pm me and I'll make sure I'm nice to you when I see you wink

<disclaimer: I am always nice, except for when people try and convince me that king kong is a good movie, then I get angry>

whomovedmychocolate Sun 21-Aug-11 20:15:45

Missed the thread but it's happened to us all. Repeat the mantra just words on a screen, words on a screen, words on a screen smile

ChippingIn Sun 21-Aug-11 20:18:07

Hey mate - don't be daft!! You have to stick around or all of the muppets win grin

Ignore the twats and stay and chat to the rest of us!!

Oh yes - if you name change PM me!! But you don't need to - it will be tomorrows fish & chip wrapper!

ginmakesitallok Sun 21-Aug-11 20:18:13

Don't leave because of one flaming - if we all did that there'd be noone on here!! this too shall pass

Honeydragon Sun 21-Aug-11 20:19:49

Yup, I can vouch for chippings loveliness too so contact her

MatthewWrightOffTheTelly Sun 21-Aug-11 20:22:31

Just read the thread. You weren't going to win there, some people were just piling in to join in the kicking. But you got some support too. smile Especially once you admitted you were indeed BU. Doesn't always happen!

I doubt the thread will be worrying MNHQ's legal team too much. You were hardly specific in your accusation now were you. And anyone involved with "the case" enough to recognise him would see how sorry you were. (I do think a gesture to him via his company is a great idea too).

Pull yourself together, namechange if necessary (maybe avoid namechange200!) and keep buggering on!

Hassled Sun 21-Aug-11 20:22:50

People forget, honestly. They really do. It must seem like a huge deal to you today (I lurked) but this time next week very few of us will match the name with the thread. Really - let a bit of time pass and then carry on regardless. Very few of us hold grudges/have memories.
