Surely it's adult choice to post in and any abusive posts can just be deleted?

Hi wanttoknowmore,

Thanks so much for flagging this - more than happy to take a look for you.

Not too sure what threads you're referring to, but if the threads were spammy/touting for business or joining to advertise a business, then that's usually a reason why we'd zap.

If you'd like to know more about why specific threads were deleted, do let us know what the thread titles are and we'll have a dig for you.

Psychic threads prey on the gullible and vulnerable.

Ah yes, we zapped it as it was spam.

When people join to post like this, rather than Mumsnetting in the usual fashion, then it isn't really on. It's like a company coming along and sharing a free trial. Even though it looks like a bargain, it's advertising, which is against our talk guidelines.

Hope you can see where we're coming from and we're always happy to expand on deletions, should you ever need a bit more info. Just give us a shout!
