and will she be back?

I'm a lurker on these boards but I enjoyed reading Dittany's posts and wondered where she's gone.

I think that, understandably she was getting frustrated by being a focus for MRA posters' abuse. I hope she's not gone completly. Maybe just on holiday or namechanged?

i hope she comes back-i miss her.

She said she was having a break. I hope she will be back soon.

She was on here the other day under a namechange. She's having a break but had popped back for a bit of healthy debate. grin

Was going to post the same thing. I miss her too.

I am slightly back, under this (temporary) name.

I have got sick of all the MRA posters around here and the amount of disruption they are causing.

Plus the constant focus on women's behaviour and refusal to address harm men do to us, which is not the way we will ever change anything.

I miss Mumsnet too though!

Yay !!!

What's MRA?

hocuspontas Tue 16-Aug-11 10:47:41

I just commented on another thread about you. I'm glad you're back, albeit only slightly!

lisianthus Tue 16-Aug-11 10:53:15

Yay! Welcome back!

AbsDuCroissant Tue 16-Aug-11 10:54:00

Yay dittany!

Ignore them. They're morons who are too stupid/socially awkward and ugly to get laid, so they blame feminism.

CaptainNancy Tue 16-Aug-11 10:55:11

Excuse me! Please, please find another name sad
I've been using this one for 3 years now, and I'm rather attached to it...

sunshineandbooks Tue 16-Aug-11 10:55:58

Great to see you Nancy wink

Blu - MRA = Men's Rights Activist (this doesnt mean a man who defends men's rights BTW, it refers to a particular political movement that promotes men's superiority over women).

I think she got fed up with abuse on a certain thread.

exoticfruits Tue 16-Aug-11 11:01:49

Sorry-abuse of her.

CaptainNancy Tue 16-Aug-11 11:02:17

damn, I should have bagsied the blackett bit too <<kicks self for being a tame galoot>>

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Tue 16-Aug-11 11:03:03

We miss you too, dittany!

<inappropriate hug>
<straightens self out>
...Sorry about that. Come back "properly", soon? Please?

You wont know me but I lurk on the feminism board sometimes and was thinking about where Dittany had gone to. Someone linked to a truly pathetic FB group a few weeks ago (Mumsnet Sucks, I think) and I had a quick read of it. The tragic, angry little prick who runs it was crowing about how he was going to switch focus from Dittany to someone else, or words to that effect, so I assumed that he'd been harrassing you, Dittany. Sorry you have had to put up with that, it's amazing how angry this type of man can be towards a woman he doesnt know isnt it? I have seldom come across anyone so lacking in self awareness.

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Tue 16-Aug-11 11:04:02

*Sorry, CaptainNancy. So used to you being dittany though. wink

DontCallMeFrothyDragon Tue 16-Aug-11 11:06:23

Oh wait... now you two are wreaking havoc with my dyslexia and I'm all confuseeeed...

Three cheers!

Don't let them grind you down, Dittany, I love to hear your perspective on things and have huge respect for you.
