That was out of order and mean!!!

Did they think it was advertising? I thought it was more information than an advert.

StarkAndWitchesWillFindYou Wed 17-Nov-10 15:52:02

How would I know what they thought? They didn't have the decency to investigate or even contact me to ask.

ShadeofViolet Wed 17-Nov-10 15:53:21

I was just wondering blush I thought it was pretty informative actually.

StarkAndWitchesWillFindYou Wed 17-Nov-10 15:55:33

LOL. I wasn't having ago at you. Just cross. Think they are out of order.

Waiting for my apology and reinstatement of my thread.

I took on the LA, the School, thought I'd try MN now! wink

StarkAndWitchesWillFindYou Wed 17-Nov-10 16:02:30

Dunno who did it do I?

They didn't email me so I don't know who it was.

click on report on your post.

StarkAndWitchesWillFindYou Wed 17-Nov-10 16:25:04

Okay. Right I reported my own post/thread.

Perhaps I'm just a bit bored now I have nothing immediate to get cross about, but it HAS made me cross!

Us lot have enough stacked against us without the flippin MN 'system' letting us down and interfering with us getting access to our rights as well!

Hi Stark,

The reason that your post was deleted was because we had a complaint that it was a 'Vote Here' thread. We have had an influx of these recently and cannot make any exceptions. We have to hold fast to our rule that our discussion forums are really just for parent-to-parent support and advice - and not for any kind of promotional activity, however wonderful and worthy.

However, I will copy the post in an email to you (minus the 'VOTE HERE' link) which you are more than welcome to re-post.

Apologies for the confusion, we would never intentionally remove important information.

MNHQ - what about letting the "vote here" be posted on the charities board? I can see why you would want to deter "vote for my baby to be Baked Beans beauty contest winner" type threads, but surely a charity could be cut more slack?

ghoulsforgodot Wed 17-Nov-10 18:59:19

oh whats this. I have obviously missed something.
Star?
Do tell...

StarkAndWitchesWillFindYou Thu 18-Nov-10 16:44:20

Thank you rebecca. I wasn't aware of any 'vote here' rules but the thread was nothing more than awareness raising of a service that people here would find useful.

Someone actually complained shock

Yes that's a good idea anotherbrickinthewall - we'll do that in future.
