Hi Julie,
There appear to be a lot of us unable to post from or laptops and computers. We are all getting the message

Sorry we are not accepting new threads right now.

Can you help us out?

I get that message if I try and post from my iPad but I can post from my iPod touch. Both use Safari.

I can only post via the app. And tbh that's a struggle as I'm a bit oissed. Or pissed even. And, AND I have not even been naughty today.

I can post from iphone but not ipad. On the ipad I get the 'not accepting new threads' message (even though it's not a new thread) and then the endlessly circling thing.

I can post from the mobile site on my iPod touch but can't post from the desktop site on my iPad.

We have suspended everyone's ability to post in order for us to clear the inflammatory threads which have popped up during the evening, and to prevent any more from starting whilst we do this. Jokey or otherwise, they have left a lot of mumsnetters deeply offended and this isn't what Mumsnet is about.

Things should be back to normal in the morning.

On laptop on mobile site (it doesn't look pretty) but I can post

I thought I'd broken it
