Part 1 and Part 2 have reached capacity but at least one poster - you know who you are bibbitybobbityhat - was wanting to continue chatting so we thought we'd start another thread so you can continue to tell us your thoughts on the matter.

It may be tomorrow though before we respond -some of us at MN towers a tad worn out after a hectic, but very enjoyable eve, watching Angelina Ballerina ballet in Holland Park with a few of the MNHQ dds - highly recommended (the ballet, that is, not the dds.... though actually they weren't too bad either).

Night all

In your last email on the 2nd thread you said "Leah emailed MNHQ a while back to say she had deregistered before the first column appeared and only posted sporadically before that, so not sure where the idea that she's re registered and is posting regularly under a different name came from - certainly not from us and certainly not based on any information we have."

On Thursday 13 Aug Justine posted "A few things to clarify. First there is certainly no ill-will between the journalist writing this item and MN - quite the contrary. Yes she was cross with us at one point a few years back for some deleting I did during quite a heated discussion and left quite publicly but she returned pretty swiftly with a new name and has been around a lot since. So there is no reason to believe she has anything but honourable intentions re the column. She has contributed immensely to MN over the years."

Now it appears that LH has deregged or "left" more than once, and that you are referring to her most recent deregging of only a few weeks ago. However I think that the exchange that you have quoted from, and were responding to, was confirming that LH had been posting on here within the last year or two (which Justine's earlier message seems to confirm). I guess one person's sporadic postings may equate to someone being around a lot?

as it's Part 4

I wan to reiterate that LH when she was posting here was very, very kind to me

really compassionate and thoughtful and supportive

one can't fake that, I think

part 3 blush sorry

ah well just like one person's posting a lot is another person's 'sporadic posting',

one person's kind and compassionate is another person's rude and unreasonable. i remember her repeatedly screaming 'vile and disgusting' to me much to my shock on one thread as she can and i had seen her being measured most other times with others.

some people are so contrary sometimes.

LadyMuck - thank you for going back to find that post from Justine. I knew I wasn't imagining it! She definitely said that LH has been posting regularly under a different name since she flounced a couple of years ago.

I have good reason for taking a particular interest in this issue and have read the threads carefully and I hate to be accused of lying or at least being misleading.

However, I am amazed I haven't spotted LH under her new posting name. She had a very distinctive style. Like everyone else I am dying to know who she was after the flouncing but I know that name is not going to appear on this thread!

I have lost track of when MNHQ are going to update us on what has been agreed with the DM re. the future of this so-called column. Anyone know?

LadyStColumb Wed 26-Aug-09 13:14:38

oh, I've just been deleted. shock.

MNHQ - if it helps you've deleted my post with the broken link. Next one has the correct one with the satirical link.
