Has Tech buggered up my membership and inadvertently dropped me into a MNHQ admin group, or did I go on holiday and things have changed around here?

AitchTwoOh Mon 10-Aug-09 21:22:18

it's the new regime <bans MP>

Abuse your power (but not on me)

poorbuthappy Mon 10-Aug-09 21:22:47

Its because you buggered off and we haven't had a round up for ages...they are going to tease you and then cut you out of the loop just as you are getting used to your new found power...grin

shit...don't ban me!

right I will see if I can delete this

StinkyFart Mon 10-Aug-09 21:23:13

ooooh <scurries off to have play with my mumsnet>

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:23:59

Hmm I pressed the delete button but my screen filled with code

I expect that Tech will appear in my room dressed in a cape in a puff of smoke ANY MINUTE

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:24:30

I better not ban myself, what would I do all day?

StinkyFart Mon 10-Aug-09 21:25:22

heh steady with that delete finger MP

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:26:15

Actually I'm too scared to press anything in case I delete the Mumsnet server or something

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:27:31

I thought I'd gone away and you'd all agreed to that "Ban this user" thingy so you could ban people and delete posts that you found offensive

I'm glad that's NOT the case

SpawnChorus Mon 10-Aug-09 21:27:46

You've got to ban ALL of MNHQ (starting with Tech) and become an eccentric despot.

Do it.

I tried to delete my own message and then got an auto-reply from MNHQ saying that they'd received my message

they are onto me

any minute now my credit cards will all stop working and I will have to claim assylum at Netmums

"I expect that Tech will appear in my room dressed in a cape in a puff of smoke ANY MINUTE"

Sounding a bit hopeful there, MP.....

PortAndLemon Mon 10-Aug-09 21:31:22

Are you expecting him to be wearing anything else apart from the cape?

onepieceoflollipop Mon 10-Aug-09 21:32:20

No response from HQ on this yet?

Bet they're all in a meeting panicking like mad that's they've messed the site up. They are probably scoffing custard creams and washing them down with pinot grigio as we type. grin

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:33:14

I expect Tech is deciding which of his Capes to wear

Perhaps I should scrub up

DottyDot Mon 10-Aug-09 21:37:18


Do you think you have The Power to delete entire topics..?! grin

morningpaper Mon 10-Aug-09 21:39:29


Shall I just get rid of AIBU?

gigglewitch Mon 10-Aug-09 21:41:29

<posts tentatively>

who are you gonna ban, then? Is is revenge because you have missed two whole weeks of the Talk Roundup shock grin

MollieO Mon 10-Aug-09 21:42:09

You can't get rid of AIBU - we'd lose the 'we hate Lazytown' thread - I am a staunch defender of the lush Sportacus. grin

BitOfFun Mon 10-Aug-09 21:44:01

Can we send requests if we're nice to you?

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Aug-09 21:47:36

<wakes up from jetlag. from European holiday>
Oi MP we are indeed on to you.
Evil cackle

DottyDot Mon 10-Aug-09 21:47:40

I think that would be perfectly reasonable.

ooh - and can you change all the prices of stuff in the selling things topic?! grin

Ahem. blush
