I've had a post deleted on the above thread timestamped 17.10.03. Just wondering why? I swore yes, but I didn't swear at anyone in particular. I made a hugely general comment about my 'haterz' that tied to no one in particular! So why the deletion? I'm just a little perplexed about which part of the guidelines I've contravened and some clarity would be appreciated!

It's on that racism one in site stuff. Someone thinks that "mad as a box of frogs" is a racial slur against the French...

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 20:13:46

probably, since it was deleted.

mnhq probably have better things to do that hang around on one thread. esp since the op has been taken to task.

Yeah, but there have been a shit load of posts since that one and HQ were sitting on it earlier.

I still want to know if someone reported mine...

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 20:07:22

umm, Ive reported that post.

so, I suspect have others. posts dont go poof within seconds.

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 20:04:51

That whole thread will go, I reckon. To protect the OP from rightful derision. Not In The Spirit is my prediction.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 20:02:08

This is interesting. I got deleted for calling no one in particular a humourless cunt and another poster is naming others as racists and it's left to stand. How is mine a personal attack and that one isn't?

Oh fine line beardy fine line..... You name will be highlighted on list soon!

I love Rowan because she's never deleted me for being annoying unlike some other HQers I could mention...

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:35:55

Rowan is my bff

FancyPuffin Tue 13-Nov-12 16:34:10

I love Rowan ever since she was a jolly good egg when a bunch of us were pissing about.

AnyFucker Tue 13-Nov-12 16:30:58

That wouldn't be attention-seeking or goady enough though, BornSour. smile

BornSour Tue 13-Nov-12 16:29:51

I'm not getting why this couldn't have been done by email. HQ have always been happy to explain any deletions & stuff if you contact them. One deletion should not a thread make.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 16:10:47

I'm sure that all the HQ staff are lovely. If I was going to the meet up I'd buy them some gin. But I'm not, so I won't.

Helen is my keyworker. I am v proud of that.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:49:33

I love Helen, she always replies to my reports properly.

AnyFucker Tue 13-Nov-12 15:43:28

Rowan is a very nicely brought-up lady. She would never be rude.

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 15:42:52

I got deleted for homophobia recently. Hoh yes, big ol homophobe me. Even tho I pointed out ON THE THREAD that I was being satirical and why...

hth, Beardy

InSPsFanjoNoOneHearsYouScream Tue 13-Nov-12 15:38:51

No one would speak to me either. They would all be hiding SPsFanjo

FairiesWearPoppies Tue 13-Nov-12 15:37:23

We would beardy but only to find next sweary thread grin

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 15:36:34

BOF, god, I always hated the idea of hide poster. I have ranted about it and opposed it at every turn. lately, I have come round to the idea. now, I would fucking love to be able to hide certain posters. my life would be so much happier and less stressful.

it would be good for my health.

CaptainBarnaclesDaddyman Tue 13-Nov-12 15:35:31

No to the hide poster button! No one would ever read my posts again! shock

BOFingSanta Tue 13-Nov-12 15:34:06

Rowan is always super-polite, even to dickheads. It's kind of her trademark. MNHQ have special training sessions in grace under fire. I think they should roll them out across the whole site; either that, or give me the Hide Poster button grin.
