I posted 2 threads when i just signed up and both disappeard. I wasn't even able to log on again or reset my password.

Were they blatant self-advertising? Or dubious requests for sexual revelations? Or libellous speculation about public figures? The list goes on and on.

Not wanting to make you sound dim, but are you sure they were deleted?

I can see a few of your posts..

I did an advanced search on your username and can see 3 posts by you on the relationships board.

Hi SuperBeeRecharged - we're sorry you're having trouble with your account.

Could we ask you to email us at with the details of your previous account (email address, username) and we'll take a look for you.

In particular your "lashes out at DH what next" thread is still up there.

Thank you all! This is a new account i created and posted a new thread in Relationships, but the other two seemed gone. Im new to this site so i might me having trouble finding my way around, but even if the other two threads i created still exist, i no longer have acess to that user name.

You could search for posts by your previous name using Advanced Search to find out what happened to them. Then if there's been any useful responses you could just post on the threads saying "this is me, the OP, I lost my password which is why I've got a new name"

But MNHQ can also sort you out of course.

Thank u! I did find it and it says it has been deletes, they are looking behind the sncenes. I found it odd, the threads were not that different from the others. Maybe someone reported me is that is possible.

What did you post about?

YonicScrewdriver Wed 15-Jul-15 19:35:07

Yes it's certainly possible, nay, likely, that you were reported.

MNHQ will answer best, though.

One post was about ipod and webside data. The other one was a little survey i was reying to do. I read a lot of threads in relationships and some talked a lot about porn. Lots of ppl, mainly men, think that all men watch porn. So i was just curious and decided to ask all the men on here few questions about whether they watch porn.

Oh that will be it. Surveys aren't really allowed unless officially sponsored (grey areas here and there where established MNers are satisfying their own curiosity, or the topic seems like interesting fun, but as a brand new member you'd get no discretion). Combine that with the porn angle (see "dubious requests for sexual revelations" above) and you're always likely to get deleted.

Ahhhh ok.i see. Thank you. Because im nrw do this site, im not familiar with the rules. Some ppl didn't seem very happy about that thread and some thought it was an interesting angle.
