I will just say to MNHQ I do hope you consider my last reports and don't just say it's good I educated in the thread. Or I will cry. Well be despondent. In case it's lost at end of last thread.

Samcro Sun 26-Jun-16 10:45:51

fanjo what happened?

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Sun 26-Jun-16 10:47:47

Just the usual. I objected to someone with ASD being called selfish. Was then told I only see one side and "I guess the needs of the people without ASD don't count" etc etc. The usual

Same old story again and again.

Samcro Sun 26-Jun-16 10:48:48

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Sun 26-Jun-16 10:48:52

Just to let you know - with all the extra Brexit threads we still have a huge inbox, so sorry if we don't get back as quickly as we'd like.
We do have lots of us about this morning though.

DawnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 26-Jun-16 11:26:35

Was about to say the same thing, PresidentO, smile

Also wanted to give a quick progress report to say we've mailed a number of posters whose comments on the LTB thread had been reported for being disablist (intentionally or unintentionally).

We've also received a couple of mails already in response to our post on that thread from people who've reconsidered their comments and realised that they may have come across the wrong way.

It's small progress, but a step in the right direction and we're going to try to keep posting on threads, keep sending mails out, and keep trying to hammer the message home that we won't tolerate disablist posts on Mumsnet.

Thanks for bearing with us. flowers

Samcro Sun 26-Jun-16 11:27:42

that is good

Jasonandyawegunorts Sun 26-Jun-16 11:29:16

THank you both, for the action you've taken and for keeping us informed.

MrsHathaway Sun 26-Jun-16 11:34:28

Marking place.

I want it noted that posters without disabilities (their own or their children's) are also on board. This isn't just a matter for those who live it every day.

MrsHathaway Sun 26-Jun-16 11:36:51

Clumsy use of "disabilities", sorry. I do want to use the right terminology but I'm ignorant of the technical differences between SEN, LDs, disabilities and other?

Samcro Sun 26-Jun-16 11:41:09

its ok, I get confused

WhoKnowsWhereTheTimeG0es Sun 26-Jun-16 11:48:00

I didn't post on the last thread but have been following it, such an important issue.

BeyondTellingEveryoneRealFacts Sun 26-Jun-16 12:00:20

I would say that "disabilities" is a reasonable catch all term for various areas of umm, disablement?
