You never used to delete threads because the poster got arsey when things wasn't going their way!

Protect their privacy my back side. There was nothing to be protected

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Tue 06-Sep-16 22:07:03

There were no privacy issues there.
OP just didn't get the answers she wanted.

BerylStreep Tue 06-Sep-16 22:07:42

Agree - there was no privacy to be protected at all. OP asked for the thread to be deleted because everyone thought she was a dick.

Can you at least state on the threads 'OP didn't like the way the thread was going so we deleted it'?

Yeah I hadn't even got through reading the insults at my "girls will be girls and boys will be boys" comment. grin

I'm not raising my son to be an oppressor though... he just likes guns and tractors.

They never used to delete things at the posters request

When I first started and I called my son a knob out of sheer frustration (new baby, didn't sleep, I was exhausted) I got ripped to shreds. Really proper abuse.

I was in tears and requested to have it deleted. This was before I knew it wasn't the done thing

They replied and said whilst we sympathise with you and that it's clear it was distressing me, unless it was it against talk guidelines or breached a privacy issue, they don't delete threads

Can't believe HQ deleted a cake thread.

Soubriquet Tue 06-Sep-16 22:11:44

Yep the cake thread

Not the first I've seen either

Firsttimer82 Tue 06-Sep-16 22:12:25

Yup... Maybe her MIL didn't read it before we all did and it upset her... grin

YouAreMyRain Tue 06-Sep-16 22:13:14

My first post was on AIBU, I got ripped to shreds, boo-hoo, I got over it!

That poster was rude and vile, she did a "middle finger" gesture to everyone who posted, she deserved everything she got!

What was the cake thread about?

gamerchick Tue 06-Sep-16 22:13:41

Maybe they're fed up of people banging the same old tiresum bellend drum because I bloody am and I doubt I'm the only one.

SmallBee Tue 06-Sep-16 22:13:45

I really want some cake.

This is the third TAAT I've clicked on about this cake thing. I wish I'd read it now.

justdontevenfuckingstart Tue 06-Sep-16 22:13:58

Did anyone get cake?

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Tue 06-Sep-16 22:14:25

Sex, cake and MILs, Imperial.

ohidoliketobe Tue 06-Sep-16 22:14:43

Was it the 'gender reveal cake' thread?

Soubriquet Tue 06-Sep-16 22:15:00

This isn't just about cake thread

It's about all threads really

Why has their policy suddenly changed from not deleting to deleting on request?

YouAreMyRain Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:11

^^ especially when you can name change to get over the humiliation

UnderTheGreenwoodTree Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:13

I predict MN will soon merge with Nethuns - and we'll all have to "Your bubs, your rules, hun" soon. Or we'll be deleted.

So as not to make this a TAAT, HQ - you really did used to state that you wouldn't delete threads just because OP didn't like the answers - and this was blatantly the case.

PacificDogwod Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:27

Everything and everybody is getting more precious-y snowflake-y like. Sigh.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:38

Yep, I've noticed more and more deletions just because the OP's requested it.

MistressMerryWeather Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:49

Sex, cake and MILs

There's the title for MN's next advice book.

EmpressKnowsWhereHerTowelIs Tue 06-Sep-16 22:16:54

You can read the poem I wrote on the cake thread if you like. It went:

It may or may not be the truth
That Bumpa's baby has a foof.
It may have two veg and steak
We won't know 'til Bump cuts the cake.
