I have reported it 3 times today, 1 before 9am.
Heard nothing from them.

Sorry that it took us a while - inbox is on fire today

We most certainly do NOT only check reports a couple of times a day; we check them constantly. But how quickly we can deal with them depends on how big our inbox is - and it's been a bit humongous today

RowanMumsnet, are you saying you were at least 6 hours behind with your inbox today?

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 16:35:32

Amillion, sometimes that happens. Why can't you accept that like everyone else?

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:36:37

there are other amphibians in need out there.

Greensleeves Tue 13-Nov-12 16:39:26

amillionyears, just drop it fgs, you got what you wanted

I don't know why some posters continue to use mumsnet when everything about it pisses them off.

amillionyears Tue 13-Nov-12 16:45:36

6 hours is too long for racism.

amillionyears Tue 13-Nov-12 16:47:09

I realise there are some other posts that would take priority.

How far down the priority is racism?

Leave her alone!

<Puts arms around rowan>

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Tue 13-Nov-12 16:48:03

I want to look at the OP's inbox. Check her efficiency.

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Tue 13-Nov-12 16:48:14

ooh that sounded a tad rude.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 16:48:16

I would imagine that they get snowed under fairly quickly. Seriously, let it go.

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Tue 13-Nov-12 16:48:53

Have you not seen the twats on MN lately?

MN inbox must be full of people saying 'cor have you seen this wanker' etc.

BlameItOnTheCuervHoHoHo Tue 13-Nov-12 16:49:20

Amillion, why do you use mumsnet? It seems that all you do is whinge about it.

<Waits to be reported>

Greensleeves Tue 13-Nov-12 16:49:27

you can't just click your fingers and expect people to jump! 6 hours is a pretty short time to get a personal response to a query/complaint on a big website.

There are others, if you don't like this one....

That thread from the early hours of Sunday was there for fucking ages.

It was almost as if mnhq were quite literally asleep.

It was ace. I was on a shitstorm thread instead of hearing about it afterwards.

MotherfuckingMorrisMan Tue 13-Nov-12 16:50:43

Now I really, really want to report some random post so I can put in the comment box 'cor have you seen this wanker'.

I am so easily amused.

And yes I am one of those divs who laughs at her own jokes. <proud>

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:52:02

I am intrigued

amillion are you really this incensed about frogs?

We're a bit confused here, amillionyears. From what we can see, the posts you reported were personal attack - someone calling someone else "mad as a box of frogs".

Obviously, they merit deletion (for being personal attacks) but, given that the thread wasn't about French people but about the failings of Mumsnet and the person being attacked had made no mention of being French, we didn't see any racist intent in the posts.

BornSour Tue 13-Nov-12 16:54:10

If you don't like MN, why don't you hoppit?

Sorry, that was a bad croak.

Greensleeves Tue 13-Nov-12 16:54:28


so there wasn't any French connection at all?

loopier and loopiergrin

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:54:43

Did you type that with a straight face Helen?

Did you?

BornSour Tue 13-Nov-12 16:55:09

I love the phrase 'mad as a box of frogs'.

When I'm mad. I'm that kind of mad.

HullyEastergully Tue 13-Nov-12 16:55:46

I grow increasingly fond of amillion

what else are you cross about?
