Which means that MN's explanation was a big old fib
Ah well. I'm done. Onwards and upwards!
No it wasn't, TobyLerone. We're not in the business of fibbing about such stuff.
We had reports about that thread - but not from the woman whose photograph was posted up.
We deleted the thread because we thought posting a possibly identifiable picture of a random member of the public, and then inviting everyone to criticise her personal appearance, was not something Mumsnet is about.
