I see we have been nannied again and a thread removed due to speculation
No wonder GN is so boring lately.

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Jun-21 12:56:02

Which was it?

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Jun-21 12:57:39

It wasn't Stork versus Butter, was it?!shockgrin

I don't kniw fir sure which thread was removed but apparently on R4 this morning was a very lively debate on transissues.
(Being GC is not a polite term for transphobic)

Transspokes person Benjamin Cohen fiercely battled with Simon Fanshaw and Gavin Esler.
You can listen to it on Catch up radio

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Jun-21 13:05:30

Oh, I heard that interview / exchange this morning!

GN has to be extremely careful as MN is being constantly monitored for so called 'transphobia'.
Transactivists screen shoot comments and stick them all over Twitter.
They are in a very difficult, if not impossible, situation with it

The accused policeman thread.

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Jun-21 13:06:43

I thought that Cohen was just being difficult and wasting valuable debating time.

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Jun-21 13:07:30

Oh, thank you sodapop

nanna8 Tue 08-Jun-21 13:10:04

Oh well, I never even found it so I don't care.

I thought it was the Stonewall/mother thread, so has another one gone? It's getting like the Queen song "Another one Bites the Dust' www.youtube.com/watch?v=rY0WxgSXdEE

This will be gone soon too, since it’s a TAT.

I believe it was the thread I started re Wayne Couzens, deleted for too much speculation! What is too much speculation? I see plenty of speculation everywhere on GN. If you deleted them all there wouldn’t be much left on here apart from games. So do we add to the rules “No Speculation “?

sodapop Tue 08-Jun-21 14:17:13

Seems like it 25Avalon best just stick to the Royal Family and games like good little old grannies.

25Avalon Tue 08-Jun-21 14:21:54

Soda pop even Royal Family isn’t safe. I got deleted for “attacking another woman” for some remark which I thought was not offensive about MM.

sodapop Tue 08-Jun-21 14:27:01

Pitiful isn't it

Ellianne Tue 08-Jun-21 14:57:29

I agree with 25Avalon. Speculation does actually suggest some kind of thought process and if you take that away from posters you are left with just niceties like recipes and games.

BlueBelle Tue 08-Jun-21 14:58:54

Another thread has gone and that’s the one about the American granny who ‘popped’ her grandson for not sitting properly on his chair I can’t remember the title now but that’s been deleted too

NanKate Tue 08-Jun-21 15:23:07

Big Brother is watching you. 🥸

read The Contempt of Court Act 1981, with special regard to the strict liability rule.
this forum ie GN and anyone who posts on it, are just as subject to the law as anyone else.
GN cannot ignore the law.
nor should they allow any posters to do so.

I once had a photo removed from Facebook of a cute little cat sitting under a Christmas tree, part of my yearly holiday advent Calendar I do each year to countdown to the 25th. The reason given for deletion - it might encourage suicide!

I didnt see the thread but if his speculation on an upcoming court case then of course they should delete if it would impact on a prosecution.

Galaxy Fri 18-Jun-21 15:17:13

As a site GN is very troll heavy at the moment, some deletion might be a good thing.

Severnsider Fri 18-Jun-21 15:24:23

I had a thread removed for criticizing Stonewall.

I was obviously stonewalled!
