It was, in literal terms, a personal attack IMO (although I think it was a brave thing to post and I agree with what you said).

Very knotty problem this - when a poster hasn't explicitly broken any rules, but a fairly clear pattern of behaviour is building up. Glad I'm not in charge... (who am I kidding, I'm ALWAYS glad I'm not in charge)

Reality - I agree with policywonk, but am very glad you posted. Just spent 5 minutes going through old posts and its unbelievable! Just hope lots of people read your post before it got deleted.

Bloody hell, The ONE time I decide to actually do the bloody sodding housework and something interesting happens.

Read the 'was DizzyMare a troll?' thread (the last 50 or so posts) and all will be revealed - but be quick 'cos that's probably next for the chop grin

Glad you flagged it up. Even if it was a personal attack it was justified. Especially as she's treating people as thickos saying she had to dry clothes off her sons body angry

We don't allow scamming or trolling so if you suspect scamming, trolling, or similar wrong-doing please report it and we'll investigate and ban if appropriate. But we'd rather you didn't post your suspicions about members on the boards - if those suspicions end up being unfounded then it can be incredibly hurtful/damaging.

The thing is, MNHQ, is every time you delete something like whatever this was (I didn't see it) it creates 1000 more posts about it.

Much better to just leave the thread and perhaps close it to new posts, if that is possible.

Good thinking Tee.

(I love MN and all the rules though especially as I just won a competition!)...

[hopes MNHQ likes the last bit]

can you all stop keeping MN HQ busy, then they might email me about a thread I reported

junglist1 Fri 09-Oct-09 15:29:44

only if you tell us what thread it was grin

shootfromthehip Fri 09-Oct-09 15:34:12

Yeah- go on smoking!!!

Tee2072 Fri 09-Oct-09 15:43:26

Its what every other message board I've been on does about trolls, Star.

And congrats on winning!!

I should be doing the ironing.
