Hello lovely MNHQers. Are we still allowed humour on the site? <lighthearted>

Sorry the title is somewhat tongue in cheek before I get deleted, but there is a concern that gently ironic threads are getting pulled very hastily at the moment.

I'm just posting in site stuff so it will come up on your radar.

It would be great to have an answer to this.

<lighthearted>

Ducking conts.

I'd be really really really interested to know how many posters reported it.

If it was in the vicinity of three, what about the reports made the thread deletion-worthy?

If it was in the vicinity of 300, does it not worry you that the site is attracting such arseholes?

Watching with interest

Pagwatch Tue 30-Dec-14 11:08:34

Yes. I am grimly aware of that.

I've been here a decade. I am always immensely supportive of mnhq but the tide of lowest common denominator has finally got to me.

Pagwatch Tue 30-Dec-14 11:13:02

I woulD also love one of the people who reported the thread to help me understand what the hell made them find it so dreadful that they needed it deleted.

People post threads saying 'what can I do about the SN child in my DDs class' and they get a reminder about 'this is my child' but a thread about calling your child the Magnificent and teaching them ninja is too beyond the pale to stand

I like Benjamin The Great and it reminded me of why I stayed here in the first place.

There's too much bolleaux on here since the great PB backwash.
I find the lowest common denominator theme is taking us dangerously close to hun territory and NOT what MN is about at all.

thornrose Tue 30-Dec-14 11:18:29

I'd like to hear MNHQ reasoning on this too.

ThomasLynn Tue 30-Dec-14 11:21:42

I'd like to know, too. I don't post often at all, but I enjoyed that thread.

If MN goes all 'hunny' on me I'll have to do something drastic.

Perhaps I'll turn out the pantry, I'll get that desperate.

BoreOfWhabylon Tue 30-Dec-14 11:24:15

I've reported the OP, in the hope of getting a response from MNHQ.

Samcro Tue 30-Dec-14 11:25:22

what was the thread about??

Hi all,

We've posted on Pag's thread to keep it all in one place.

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:22:21

OK. I won't post on this thread then.

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:22:36

Apart from just then.

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:23:12

And that one too. And now I come to think of it, this one as well.

MardyBra Tue 30-Dec-14 12:23:53

How long will this continue tiggy?

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:24:56

It won't. I've totally stopped now.

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:25:14

Shit! Apart from that one.

TiggyD Tue 30-Dec-14 12:25:46

And that one and this one. No more from now on!
