Can someone please tell those of us 'not in the know' what thread and why G.N. has deleted a thread please. Obviously some G.N. feel confident to enter thread, I have not a clue and feel we all should know.

Don't understand POGS

HQ deleted a thread that they felt, because of its title, was a deliberate attempt to start up a squabble. That's all.

Nanadogsbody Fri 24-Aug-12 08:13:41

Fascinating...what was it called or are you it allowed to say?

Nanadogsbody Fri 24-Aug-12 08:14:06

And how do you know this?

Bags Fri 24-Aug-12 08:18:55

I saw it, noticed HQ had posted on it, had a look and saw that they were going to delete it and why, thought 'silly twit' about the poster, and left it at that. I can't remember the title but it included words along the lines of bullying and sycophancy.

Because we read it before it was deleted.

Thanks for explaining bags and greatnan I'm really speculating! I've not been posting on GN for long but have already met some characters. Some people whose views I disagree with, some who make me laugh, lots of empathy and lots of fury. But isn't that what it's all about? hmm

I too read the OP and thought that it was a recipe for disruption and was pleased that HQ was on the ball that morning. If the title of the thread had been less explicit about its intentions, if it had been more bland, then it might have got past the 'censor'.

See, now I don't understand why it took Josi so long to delete it after she had said she was going to. Gave a lot of people time to have a look and wonder.

Can't they do it quicker?

Or maybe she really couldn't remember how to.

JO4 Fri 24-Aug-12 09:55:09

Should Josi have an 'e'?!

JO4 Fri 24-Aug-12 09:55:40

Josie Josi

No. Can't remember.

Greatnan Fri 24-Aug-12 09:57:23

It gave me a good laugh, so I was glad to have seen it.

Littlenellie Fri 24-Aug-12 10:09:51

And I am just plain nosy ,and miffed I missed it DOH...grin

jeni Fri 24-Aug-12 10:53:36

You didn't miss much nel

Littlenellie Fri 24-Aug-12 11:04:06

That's ok then grin

POGS Fri 24-Aug-12 18:00:47

O.K. I did not see it but I get the drift.

I would have liked to have seen it for myself though to know if I thought it was worth shutting it down. It did sound interesting and I am guessing it was recent.


jeni Fri 24-Aug-12 18:08:16

It was a repeat of what has been said before about bullying and v.iwuey but under an unknown name!

petallus Fri 24-Aug-12 18:48:13

I think the poster cropped up later in a different thread and made a similar comment, though watered down.

Greatnan Fri 24-Aug-12 18:53:29

People can use different names, but they can't change their style!

Anagram Fri 24-Aug-12 18:59:31

I'm sure they could if they were clever/crafty enough.

JO4 Fri 24-Aug-12 19:07:58

I was accused of being johanna last September. A poster said the style was the same. And both names started with 'j'. grin

(I'm not johanna)

JO4 Fri 24-Aug-12 19:09:09

Though I've got no way of proving that. Although I think we have been on the same thread at times.

Would that prove it? confused
