So, I got an email about a comment in which I said that I wanted to know why genderists keep comparing trans identified males to black women and lesbians being deleted. I think this is absolutely barmy, and have said so to HQ. I'm also baffled as to how this breaks any guidelines and thought perhaps it was time for us as a group to revisit the guidelines and explain once more to MNHQ why they're not working.

What's actually happening here is the the obsessive trans activists who monitor this site are attempting to pick off posters one by one. We lost Orchid last week, and she was just the most recent of many. I'm not sure in MNHQ realize that's happening and welcome it or if it's somehow escaped their notice, but it's a pretty messed up thing for them to be allowing to happen to their users, in my opinion. Are they going to allow this to continue until the only commenters left in this forum are the TRAs who want the entire site shut down?

I know the people who despise the women here would very much like this to all happen under the radar, and that's exactly why I'm not allowing it to play out that way.

My theory - they delete anything that's reported as long as the user being reported is a known Naughty Woman, ie a feminist.

I had one recently which didn’t mention trans but accused me of anti trans generalisation . I pointed this out and suggested the second part generalising about men could be altered to say some not all...I have tried twice and not replied to or reinstated, weird world.

Inebriati was banned this afternoon apparently.

For what? This really is getting ridiculous. Sort it out, MNHQ.

ImBrianSosMyWife Mon 02-Dec-19 21:11:07

She said she has no idea, no strikes and no emails.

TheProdigalKittensReturn Mon 02-Dec-19 21:14:25

What happened to that whole "we'll totally email you" thing?

LangCleg Mon 02-Dec-19 22:40:51

Inebriati? FFS.

@MNHQ? What is going on?

Inebriati Tue 03-Dec-19 17:00:45

I'm baaaack! Apparently its my IP address that the problem.

Thank you @HopeMumsnet flowers

Huh, that's weird. What was wrong with your IP address (so others know if they run into the same issue)?

Inebriati Tue 03-Dec-19 17:11:40

I use a VPN that's also used by Famous PBP.

Maybe Posie, since she's the subject of obsessive interest (again)?

*MNHQ why was stops thread deleted, it wasn't TAAT, the original thread was deleted a few weeks ago? Op started a new thread being very careful not to use the words she used in her first thread, the words used were the reason it was delayed in the first place. Sorry if it's not the right place for this.

Howe many more threads do we have to put up with demanding lesbians must take dick and the rest of us must STFU or be classed as bigots?

Because by that reckoning, no feminist should stand up for the rights of any group she is not a member of.
And those threads will disappear in a puff of smoke because logic.

Thank you thank you thank you THANK YOU!!! That is the reason for my Bunbury post today.

I was so very careful tying myself in knots trying to avoid going against guidelines or using language that could be misconstrued. To have it called a TAAT pisses me off as it wasn't at all - new verbiage and attention due to article posted at the thread lead.

Thank you again dear Once, your acknowledgement helps to take a little of the sting out.

I found it very hurtful for you, you did'nt do or say anything wrong and it seemed like you needed support to work through something and it struck a cord with me.
I'm sorry that you didn't get to hear what others here think and discuss and if it could have helped you flowers

Again thank you for your kind words. You are correct that I was looking for support and to call attention to the subject. Fortunately I did get some insight out of the thread which was helpful. I gain so much from talking to all of you.
