on your wonderful thread deletion notices.

I am really enjoying them. They make my TIO so much more interesting grin.

I'm quite sad when they disappear off the bottom of the page.

*threads which the troll crashed into
Not original threads as that makes no sense

The messages are inspired. I shall have to pay more attention to TIO.

Has anyone else spotted the deliberate mistake in the worra thread deletion msg?

The fact that the thread title is still there which was pretty offensive in itself?!

PickledInAPearTree Thu 07-Feb-13 15:44:27

Hahah thats true. In fact the thread title was the ONLY offensive bit.

So we are left with

Worra is a 24/7 cunt
Terrys cock
The bat

And a typo

I have to add this one:

"Thread deleted

We're sure men can find their way round mumsnet as easily as women - we welcome parents (andnon-parents) Of all ages and genders - so we think giving them a special guide is a wee bit inflammatory patronising.

Damn! Missed it again. Bloody children wanting attention and dinner and stuff. <flounces>

It was an absolute corker of an OP as well, SiSS. On Dadsnet.

Maryz Mon 11-Feb-13 20:01:49

I'm just bumping my own thread to keep it up there so it gets more posts than Fentons!

Ouch, your thread bumped me, Maryz.

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Mon 11-Feb-13 20:13:47

Let me see if I can remember the gist of the OP without getting myself deleted...

The thread was called A Man's Guide to Mumsnet and it highlighted the four most popular areas on MN, mentioning and dismissing AIBU and Chat in a mere paragraph apiece, spending a little more type on Relationships but reserving most attention for...

<can you guess?>

Ooh, me me me!

Would it be Wimmin's ishoos?

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Mon 11-Feb-13 21:26:32

You win SiSS! wine

Maryz Mon 11-Feb-13 21:31:54

What on earth made you think that Scone?

By the way, I love your name, it reminds me that some people at least know the correct pronunciation of scone.

not bumping my thread at all, at all, oh no not me

Did exploding make your chest feel better, Olivia?

Zombie tried to post that on the other thread but it had exploded.

Maryz Mon 11-Feb-13 23:23:05

Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you.

What about a teeny-tiny suggestion - you could change the title of this thread to

<uses up Olivia's entire goodwill for the next year or so>

And MASSIVE apologies to Fenton for completely steam-rolling her thread in an unforgivably selfish way blush.

Maryz Mon 11-Feb-13 23:24:10

And now I've just seen Fenton's completely unnecessary apology on the other thread, and I now feel worse and about 2 inches tall

Doctrine do you think those are the 4 most popular areas? What if the most popular area was actually Camping or Crochet - half of us have it hidden but the people who do post there post loads?

TheDoctrineOfSciAndNatureClub Tue 12-Feb-13 08:32:55

Well MNHQ don't include FWR in their top 8. But I'm not sure that particular OP was bothered about facts could have got quite so outraged about Antenatal Clubs and their place in the Oppression of Men on Mumsnet.

MaryZ, quick come and stop Fenton..she is going to flounce sad not because of you but she is a good egg...
