This thread was posted in feminism and was obviously reported very quickly but has been allowed to stand. Why? It just makes a mockery of We Believe You and is quite offensive.

There are loads of posters calling OP a troll and that would normally be enough to shut down a thread, even if the content wasn't so awful.

FrauHelgaMissMarpleandaChuckle Sun 16-Nov-14 09:17:58

Fairenuff - I agree. I've reported it twice (or maybe three times!) once before the message was put up last night and again this morning.

CatKisser Sun 16-Nov-14 09:20:03

Yes I was wondering the exact same thing!

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:21:14

HQ posted on page 1 so they obviously knew about it right from the off.

FrontForward Sun 16-Nov-14 09:26:20

It's horrendous on so many levels

CatKisser Sun 16-Nov-14 09:26:22

I know! And now it's 12 pages of rancid drivel.

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:28:25

I wonder how many people have reported it now? I didn't because it was obvious that others had.

I got an "apologies for the mass mail" response last night - so I assume loads of people had reported it?

HQ said they would be keeping a close eye on it and would ban if needed.

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

I reported it three times

FrontForward Sun 16-Nov-14 09:31:09

I have reported it. I'm generally a fan of MNHQ and think they do a great job but it sticks in my throat when they say report report report and then ignore threads like that one.

EmbarrassedPossessed Sun 16-Nov-14 09:31:32

I reported it 3 times as well, but haven't got an email response about it. I'm amazed it is still up.

FrontForward Sun 16-Nov-14 09:37:36

The whole subject of reporting and a lack of response has been raised fairly recently

(Another posters comment is quoted: MNHQ simply don't appear to have the number of bodies to cope with the number of reports or the right HQers in at peak times for useage )
The response: That's not how we see it tbh (though we wouldn't would we grin). Although we're busy, we very rarely overwhelmed - usually only when something ridiculous (like Heartbleed) happens. Most days/evenings we clear almost everything that's been reported to us, and the Night Watch deal with egregious trolling and spamming overnight.

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:41:15

Where were Night Watch last night then, was there something else going on that took precedence?

FrontForward Sun 16-Nov-14 09:41:57

So you have a 24yr old male accused of rape (describing a Ched Evans scenario of rape) and telling posters

I know what a douche bag is, sounds like you haven't douched for a long time, you must have a lot of sand in your vagina to make you this angry

That's aside of the fact the whole thread is goady

FrontForward Sun 16-Nov-14 09:43:04

Bet this thread gets deleted faster

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:43:33

And posters trying to lure HQ onto the thread by posting

Troll
Troll
Troll

Still nothing...

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:44:03

Ha FF I must admit I am partial to a bit of irony grin

Fairenuff Sun 16-Nov-14 09:48:08

Ah, there it is, finally a message from HQ on that thread...

Morning folks. We're going to be deleting this thread in a moment. Regardless of whether or not the OP was genuine, it seems to have become very unpleasant and isn't adding anything to the debate, to the site or to the world in general.

Bakeoffcakes Sun 16-Nov-14 09:48:41

MNHQ have just posted to say they are deleting it.

It should have gone last night though. Why didn't it I wonder?

FrauHelgaMissMarpleandaChuckle Sun 16-Nov-14 09:48:43

Iona just posted to say it's being deleted

I don't think that's a very helpful comment, tbh. Sorry Iona.

I wonder, was the OP genuine?

FrauHelgaMissMarpleandaChuckle Sun 16-Nov-14 09:53:57

One of the things I reported it for this morning was that there was a post on the thread that said the poster had recognised the situation as applying to someone they knew, who was from where the OP said he was from, and they were printing the thread out to take it to the person they knew and were going to try to find out who the OP was.

That worried me - quite apart from the rest of the thread - and I reported for that reason early this morning.
