There's a deeply unpleasant and potentially libellous thread in AIBU called "2 think this meme has a good point".

Please pull as soon as you can.

Thank you so much Nightwatchers.

Those were actual photographs of those young women from Facebook. Took me 30 seconds to find on social media. I feel MNHQ have a responsibility to make the people in question aware what happened on this site. I hope the women take legal action.

Sorry, the same OP has started another AIBU thread "why can girls lie about rape" .

I imagine it will go the same way as the deleted thread.

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:10:48

Thanks for the headsup, folks.

Awful thread sad

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:11:18

Eek, on it...

LouisevilleLlama Sun 16-Apr-17 04:13:11

Most of me says leave it but just a little part of me says hopefully somebody got a few screenshots to pass on to the poor girls if they want to ( possibly) take action ignorance is bliss though

Looks like another one has popped up.....

LouisevilleLlama Sun 16-Apr-17 04:13:57

Another one with a link to the girls FB

ScarlettFreestone Sun 16-Apr-17 04:15:03

There's now another one in AIBU with the girl's name as the thread title.

Can you wake someone up to ban this poster if you can't do it yourselves?

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:16:00

Thanks for flagging on NW - just reporting doesn't get thru to the nightwatch so it's good that this topic is being used smile

LouisevilleLlama Sun 16-Apr-17 04:16:10

The post has been removed with the link and video but her names still in active

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:16:31

Can't ban anyone...

ANightWatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:17:05

I've deleted the thread

LouisevilleLlama Sun 16-Apr-17 04:17:52

So she could be here for however long...tbh I don't think permanent bans but even like 15-30 minute mutes would do anything the trick to get rid of most trolls

ScarlettFreestone Sun 16-Apr-17 04:19:39

Thanks Nightwatcher I see you caught the last one.

I thought I'd remembered that you couldn't ban anyone. I'm sure I won't be the only one keeping an eye out.

ANightWatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:19:53

I've suggested that. Another forum I used to moderate allowed Mods to ban people for up to 12 hours which stopped them in their tracks and allowed the site owners to look into things

This scumbag was all over the forum this evening. Well done on zapping all their vile threads.

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:21:13

Hi fellow watcher of the night - that would be very handy

ANightWatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:22:18

Hello smile

I thought so too. Got no reply to my suggestion though

Nightwatcher Sun 16-Apr-17 04:23:44

Might not be possible on MN...
Anyhoo, back to duty smile
