So now Mumsnet deletes posts on the grounds that they're offensive to people with religious beliefs and MRA's

On the circumcision thread a post of mine was deleted and when I asked mumsnet why, this was the response:

"While it is true that posts we don't tend to delete posts on the grounds of being in poor taste because it would be really hard to draw the line; we do as in this case remove posts that, in our judgement, are simply beyond the pale.

Your post was reported to us and tbh we felt that * (an offensive acronym for MRA's) was beyond the pale tbh, especially when added to the rest of your post which was also incredibly offensive to anyone with religious beliefs."

So basically, we are not allowed to post things which offend people's religious beliefs in conjunction with offending MRA's.

Just thought I'd let you all know. I'm not even annoyed about this, after last week's targeting I think it's obvious that MN really don't want radical feminism represented here.

Impressive, running. grin

I'm not going to my graduation. I can't imagine anything worse. I'll change my MN name to Dr though.

Oh, you have to go graduation LRD - it won't seem real otherwise.

Will it be DrLRD...?

I haven't graduated from my master's yet. I still owe them my library fines. I think it will seem real enough.
