to be shocked to read one of my old mumsnet posts in the Times?

It's literally just stopped me in my tracks. Reading the extract from the mumsnet rules book in the review section and one of my posts (from a previous posting name) appears.
I thoght that I would have least got an email from the team here if they planned to use it in the book.
I'm a bit upset to be honest as the post was made when i was in the middle of a bout of depression and reads as though I hate being with my kids.
Am I being unreasonable to have expected mumsnet to contact me and / or be upset considering it's an anonymous id and not even the one that I use now?

I can understand you being upset but IMO yabu as this is a public forum and I'm assuming you aren't identified by your real i.d. Had they used your real name I would agree they should have contacted you. Try not to let it get to you, you must have made a good point relevant to many mums for them to include you :)

ok - i'm a idiot to think that I might get an email. Guess i'll just chalk it up to experience.
Have just looked up the full post and they've cropped it so that the second bit that I wrote about how things have improved isn't posted. It's been edited to make a point that's not in the true spirit of the original post.

There's a warning on the front page:

It happens alot. The Beckham's were apparently considering sending their boys ot Haberdashes Askes (spelling?) school on their return home from the USA. There was an uproar about how they're too common to send their DC's there. MNetter CrazygracieUK was quoted in the newspaper for saying exactly that. It happens all the time.
