Targeted reporting of LGB social media accounts

These people have no shame.
Maybe we should start reporting accounts that only advocate for other issues? Dogs Trust because they don't help cats? Age concern because they don't care about children?

I saw that too. Might be a good idea to give these LGB groups forming across all parties some bipartisan support. There are no safe spaces for them anymore. I'm straight but this is so very wrong.

MrsSnippyPants Tue 18-Feb-20 19:14:18

They are saying these accounts were all set up by the same people at the same time, which I know is not true as I know the person behind one of the accounts.
This is quite simply the reaction of an abusive person; you have left me, so nobody else can have you.

@LGBConservatives has been suspended today after what is clearly targeted reporting.
Haven't checked the others yet.

Miranda's FB pages reports them all taken down.

I have no idea who set up the other accounts, but I know who set up the Conservative one and despite people on Twitter saying they were all set up by the same person this is NOT TRUE.
It is quite simply a pile on by TRAs who cannot bear the thought of LGB people advocating for themselves.
Thank goodness for LGB Alliance.

It must be great to find ironclad protection to continue bullying those you take against.

not2daysanta Wed 19-Feb-20 16:34:35

Well they were all setup by the same person on the same day, falsely claiming party affiliation.

It seems like a cut-and-dry case to me. Or is your position that even if that's the case, that it's perfectly acceptable behaviour?

not2daysanta Wed 19-Feb-20 16:45:07

@MrsSnippyPants, you say it's not true but the evidence speaks for itself.

The evidence isn’t conclusive. It might well be a member of each party who is affiliated with LGB Alliance.

Or it might be a troll.

Either way, typical super-reporting from the super-paranoid.

not2daysanta Wed 19-Feb-20 16:55:31

So you're saying that it's just a coincidence that all of the accounts were setup by lg**********@g*****.com on the same day @AnyOldSpartabix?

MrsSnippyPants Wed 19-Feb-20 17:01:26

I don't see any evidence there at all not2day and please don't @ me, I'm on the thread.

Do you want to try posting what you think is evidence again? This time with actual evidence?

I've led the horse to water. The rest is up to you chicken.

ANewCreation Wed 19-Feb-20 17:05:56

They are not the same as each has a slightly different number of asterisks before the @

AnyOldSpartabix Wed 19-Feb-20 17:06:06

Please don’t @ me either not2day.

And no, I didn’t suggest it was coincidence. I stated that it might be several separate people all connected with the LGB Alliance.

MrsSnippyPants Wed 19-Feb-20 17:10:24

No, you are the one not2day saying there is evidence but you have failed to provide it.

And don't fucking patronise me chicken

You're very hostile.

donquixotedelamancha Wed 19-Feb-20 17:16:17

Or it might be a troll.

If it's a troll, or even someone lying about being a party member, then obviously the accounts should be deleted. We should not accuse people without proof.

So you're saying that it's just a coincidence that all of the accounts were setup by lg**********g****.com on the same day*

Even on the thread you link it's been pointed out that the emails are different lengths.

Starting emails for LGB groups with LG and using the largest mail provider on the planet is hardly evidence is hardly evidence.

Do you have any proof that they were set up on the same day?

You're very hostile.

You accused her of lying about knowing one of these account holders.

not2daysanta Wed 19-Feb-20 17:17:28

You accused her of lying about knowing one of these account holders.

What?

donquixotedelamancha Wed 19-Feb-20 17:20:08

What?

OP knows the Tory account holder to be genuine. If your statements are true then she is lying.

What is the basis for you saying they have been set up on the same day please?

not2daysanta Wed 19-Feb-20 17:23:03

OP knows the Tory account holder to be genuine. If your statements are true then she is lying.

Your arms must be tired from reaching. That doesn't equate to a direct accusation that she's lying about knowing the person who created one of the accounts.

The conservative account was created a month before the others. You can check @AllianceLGB's Twitter feed for evidence of that.

It's entirely feasible that it wasn't removed from Twitter's platform until a month later when another half dozen accounts claiming party affiliation suddenly appeared.

You really are very hostile, MrsSnippyPants.

I don't see a reason to continue engaging with you, seeing as you're intent on accusations and fowl language.
