Lovely stuff

Justine, great response. The more statements you put out, the stronger mumsnet's position looks - and it started off in a hugely strong position anyway (IMO of course).

TutterOtsky · 09/08/2006 08:02

great response - really hope it gets picked up again by the media

mummydear · 09/08/2006 08:04

Just looked at the repsonses from both sides. A bit of backtracking , perhpas didn't expect this kind of response from mothers who struggle to raise children without spending ££££ on guru books and have no common sense between them.

Well done Justine and Mumsnet .

Fab response Justine. The other statement is manifestly rubbish - the world and his wife have seen the letter in which she ordered the ISP to take down MN.

flashingnose · 09/08/2006 08:24

Oh I so hope MP's statement gets picked up by the papers

CountessPanina · 09/08/2006 08:25


I am so proud!

HRHQueenOfQuotes · 09/08/2006 08:29

just loling at the statement from FA - (not the football people LOL).

And "ITEM" a "PUBLICATION" - anyone would think MP published a huge thread on the subject

HRHQueenOfQuotes · 09/08/2006 08:30

BTW - fantastic response from MN

What have I missed

Update me
Freckle · 09/08/2006 08:39

And she still doesn't address the fact that she has a disclaimer on her own website absolving her from all liability for anything posted by users/members, yet seeks to hold MN liable for everything we post.

And her use of the word "campaign" shows perhaps a little paranoia.

HRHQueenOfQuotes · 09/08/2006 08:39

here MP

HRHQueenOfQuotes · 09/08/2006 08:40

indeed Freckle - we do have a thread title 'campaign updates' - but it's about the campaign to get the law changed not against anyone one individual

munz · 09/08/2006 08:41

but we have our own discalimed stating that MN isn't liable??

fairyjay · 09/08/2006 08:43

Superb professional response MNHQ. Not holding back either. So glad you used mp's apology. Well done Justine!

C4 and BBC1 did good jobs - they managed to package the issue of nobody's methods together with the issue of freedom of speech and mums giving each other advice. I can't believe the lawyer's response. Justine - fantastic job - the bit with you feeding your lo is fab! Interesting that no-one considers people who fire rockets at Lebanon terrorists. perhaps the govt of Israel might consider that defamatory....

Great stuff, well done.

MP - such a funny answer. How's it feel to be a bit of a celeb?

MrsBadger · 09/08/2006 09:00

Justine, you're fab!

(NB Morningpaper, you've been given a new alias by a blogger in the US called Daddytypes who's picked up on this... )

If I was no-one's lawyer, I'd go on holiday.

How can SWMNBN get away with suggesting that MN itself has been waging a campaign of "very serious and offensive libels about me"? I know that some individual posters have made comments to which she objected, which were deleted, but I don't see how anyone can say that those constitute a deliberate campaign by MN HQ. V v unfair.
