The next time you send an email about a poster to that poster by mistake. Probably best not to refer to your users as 'these people'

Ooh er missus. I'm not craning my neck, not me <cranes neck>

Really? shock
Hope it was a trainee and not a regular MNHQer. That's not how you should refer to your community.

Is that really how Mumsnet staff discuss the posters here?

PilesOfSmiles Wed 23-Aug-17 17:39:21

Let's face it, this site is going down hill and the founders are middle class, so we are just 'these people'

GaryNumanIsOlderThanGaryOldman Wed 23-Aug-17 17:39:26

Hey if MNHQ view me as a person at all that's probably better than how my kids view me (trampoline/dishwasher/punchbag). wink
But seriously, something juicy and no screenshot? Tsk.
What did you DO hahaha?!

'Must we get into a dialogue with these people' There you go a nice quote for you all

Scrumptiousbears Wed 23-Aug-17 17:40:54

Probably need more context in order to judge.

Hahahahaha123 Wed 23-Aug-17 17:41:40

Not going to post the whole email. it outs an old username.

Rather worrying too that internal emails can be shared in error like that too.

2017SoFarSoGood Wed 23-Aug-17 17:42:46

Wait, are you saying the message came to you, about you, and referred to you (and us) as 'these people' - from MNHQ?

Are 'these people' not the reason there is such a thing as MNHQ? The need for that same person who messaged to have a job? Wow.

I hope this is dealt wtih. Perhaps a ban. A ban on receiving any more earnings created by 'these people'. I'd certainly fire anyone on my staff who made this kind of reference about (and directly to) my clients - otherwise known as 'these people' I suppose.

Sorry, haha - that stings.

shock ohhhhhhh shit. Well I am gonna get settled in here. Can we have a picture op?

Hahahahaha123 Wed 23-Aug-17 17:43:22

Well it doesn't matter what it said.. it's a bit bloody crap sending an email to me about me. Funny though

endehors Wed 23-Aug-17 17:43:53

I've seen the quote and can't say it surprises me. Though I'd like to see how they manage to explain themselves and that contemptuous attitude, if the thread isn't deleted first of course...

GaryNumanIsOlderThanGaryOldman Wed 23-Aug-17 17:44:29

A dialogue with the hoi poloi? grin so it was advising another poster or colleague not to engage with you? WHAT did you DO?!!!!

PilesOfSmiles Wed 23-Aug-17 17:44:33

The game now is, how long til deleted.

Disablist crap stays up for hours

2017SoFarSoGood Wed 23-Aug-17 17:44:37

dealt with

my typing goes all to hell when my blood pressure rises!

EnFlique Wed 23-Aug-17 17:44:39

That's really shitty.
I hope whoever sent it is feeling mortified right now.
