I miss reading her posts and I've just seen on another thread that she deregged. sad

I name change a lot and lurk more than I post on the feminist boards so buffy won't 'know' me but i miss her! (In a non-stalker way). If anyone speaks to her tell her to come back because some random on the internet said so!

I agree with blue

It's weird without her

blue? Maybe we should go on everythread and yell for her..she may still be looking even though she deregged

Does anyone know why ?

blueBooby Fri 12-Jun-15 15:51:30

I'm up for a bit of YELLING! (See?)
I'm not sure why Closer.

Oh dear. More of a lurker than a poster too, but she'll be much missed!

QueenStromba Fri 12-Jun-15 16:03:17

She got fed up with the trolly types following her around demanding answers. She seems happier without MN.

I really liked Buffy. Will miss her posts.

It's a shame when the trolls on MN drive away the decent posters.

TheseSoles Fri 12-Jun-15 16:12:29

Really? That's a shame sad (mostly lurker also)

EElisavetaOfBelsornia Fri 12-Jun-15 16:14:38

That's really sad! I mostly lurk but have always appreciated Buffy's posts and her patience and good sense. angry that trolls have done this.

RufusTheReindeer Fri 12-Jun-15 17:00:33

That's a shame

Trouble is she would be quite recognisable if she name changed

Much too clever and erudite smile

SunsetsAndStarlings Fri 12-Jun-15 17:18:09

That is a massive pity. She is so smart and explains everything in a way even thickos like me can follow and grasp. I have learned so much from Buffy. I am sick of stupid sexist men trying to silence women who are a hundred times more worthwhile than they will ever be.

iisme Fri 12-Jun-15 17:21:14

Me too - such a shame, but I can totally see why she would want to do that. She's a great loss.

purdiepie Fri 12-Jun-15 17:22:52

Yeah, much more worthwhile silencing Nobel Prize-winning scientists for speaking their mind.

Goodbye Buffy, thanks for all the discussions. Enjoy your troll free retirement!

What a stupendously irrelevant post, Purdie.

PuffinsAreFictitious Fri 12-Jun-15 18:02:40

A lot of the old regulars have stopped posting or pretty much stopped. Sick to death of being told what bastards we all are. And being trolled by regs from elsewhere on the site who then whine about FWR regs being mean. It's dull and life's too short.

PuffinsAreFictitious Fri 12-Jun-15 18:04:32

Sorry Purdy, are you insinuating that Buffy made the distractingly sexy Tim Hunt resign?

Ha. Ha. Hahahahaha. Ha. <sigh>

Gilrack Fri 12-Jun-15 18:09:32

I miss Buffy too.

AnyFucker Fri 12-Jun-15 18:10:48

oh, Purdie, every time you remind us of how silly you are

it must be an awful cross to bear <head tilt>

SabrinnaOfDystopia Fri 12-Jun-15 19:10:31

Buffy gone? Say it ain't so. sad

I feel very sad that so many MN feminists have been chased off here. V sad indeed. When I joined MN, there were some fantastic feminists, and so many have gone now. In fact the whole site had a really feminist ethos when I joined - now, not so much.

WoTmania Fri 12-Jun-15 19:18:46

Such a shame, I don't very often post on here anymore but I still enjoy coming on a reading and her posts are always excellent.
Come Back Buffy!!!

CollatalieSisters Fri 12-Jun-15 19:21:01

I wondered what had happened - was hoping she was just having a break. A sad loss for mn. She was so patient, and she came across as brilliantly clever, scrupulously honest and fair-minded, and kind-hearted on top. And she was so generous about and competent at explaining ideas and concepts for those of us who are less than well-read (and in my case less than brilliant).

I'm glad she seems happier away but selfishly hoping she comes back in disguise but fucking angry (with the trolls, that is) she has been hounded away.

StormyBrid Fri 12-Jun-15 19:23:58

I'm glad she seems happier too, but... Who am I going to have a massive intellectual crush on now? sad

CollatalieSisters Fri 12-Jun-15 19:28:38

Does she have a blog, if anyone knows?

SenecaFalls Fri 12-Jun-15 19:29:45

I understand that Buffy needed to do what is best for her, but it is a great lost to FWR. I hope that at some point she will come back.
