Very good grin

Hello again.

Ok, have had a bit of a delve and it looks as though we've made a bit of a cock-up, and deleted the thread in error.

We have amended the deletion message to reflect that (and in homage to Maryz).

Apols all.

I can't remember her name either grin

There wasn't a bunfight, the thread was quite funny.

Maryz Mon 29-Jul-13 14:23:35

Exactly usual.

Bloody typical. And I can't even remember her name to stalk her she if she is a twit elsewhere [sigh]

That's what I thought Horry confused. The op had barely been back, and the thread was rather good-natured and funny in patches.

Helen, I didn't see a bunfight - though I suspect there was potential for one grin

It had morphed into a congratulations to Olivia message when I left.

I was a bit hmm at that thread being deleted.

I assumed OP had spat her dummy out at not getting the responses she wanted and told MNHQ that it was a privacy issue.

Yeah right.

I queried that on the thread. It hadn't got bunfighty by AIBU standards and the OP hadn't posted anything identifying at all.

I'm afraid I'm not sure what happened with that particular thread <out of the loop> but I will find out.

It does sound as though we selected the wrong deletion message, though.

How was the "boys not allowed" thread a risk to the op's privacy.

I can see that it might have been a risk to her reputation and proof that some mumnset posters are ott and a tad precious, but privacy?

I'm confused. Shouldn't the deletion message say "thread deleted because the op has realised she was being a twit"?
