    I still wouldn't be surprised if it was spin though.

    It's all going to Refuge now, it seems. Previously it has been a partnership between them and Women's Aid, with the latter being lead partner. Who knows what the rationale for that choice was, tho there have been well publicised issues with WA's leadership lately. WA workers should have the right to a TUPE transfer to Refuge tho, I'd have thought.

    If it's not a performance issue such as targets nor being met, it's possible Refuge but in a bid that undercut the partnership, charity financing can get pretty cutthroat at that level.

    I really think the trans discussion should move back to the other thread by the way or it will end up dominating this one and important stuff like this will get sidelined. I'd appreciate it if anyone wants to reply to my last few posts if they'd do it there.

    And it is crap that such helplines are being delivered based on some type of market driven competition anyway, rather than being recognised as a public service.

    Unfortunately, I doubt that. It's a well established partnership, and a pretty tiny amount of money, for a Home Office grant. Reputation is more important than saving £1 an hour on staffing. No way would Refuge bid for the entire thing unless they were encouraged too (which, of course, they shouldn't be, but...). Something is going on for them to cut WA out, hard to tell what though.

    From what I can see / hear, Refuge run their bit primarily on volunteers, WA predominantly pay staff so Refuge were able to undercut on this basis.

    Hold on. She hasn't done that since you gave her a warning not to. You are now giving her last warnings, telling her not to do things that she hasn't done since you first warned her not to do. :confused:

    Really? It's against the rules to ask people what gender/sex they are?

    Really? What's wrong with asking that? Nobody is under any obligation to reply if they don't want to? And it's a question that's been asked (in different forms) by many posters on many occasions over the years, all over these boards.

    I was going through the reported posts, Apparently she had done it several times.

    You think it's appropriate for a new poster to tag a load of people - some of whom she hasn't interacted with - and start asking them to publicly post up their gender?

    I didn't give her a proper 'points' warning anyway. For the record, my heart sinks when I see a load of reported posts come up and sometimes the same, err, 'crime' can be reported by different people many days apart.

    They weren't random tags though and people don't have to answer if they don't want to. I've asked that question before as it sometimes has relevance to the discussion.

    Why ever not? Especially since they don't have to disclose if they'd rather not. Don't you ask people the same when they sign up here?

    I understand however it appeared you were dishing out a last/ final warning even though she did it before she was warned not to. :thumbs:

    I can't think of a more appropriate thread to ask on (if there is ever an inappropriate one :confused: ) than one on feminism, yes! :thumbs:

    Fair do's - can see how that can happen when you're not following the thread - especially if the *other* post where she used the name has been reported after you'd already issued the first request not to use it (although if that was the case I can only think that whoever subsequently reported the one you hadn't originally quoted was probably being a shit-stirring dickhead).

    I've checked the feedback forum and can't see any complaints.

    Moderating and running this site is a lot of work so if posters aren't happy the Feedback forum is the place to take this.

    Who are you talking to?

    I'm assuming that it's in relation to some of the posts following editor's request for any further stuff to be taken to that forum?
    Might have been helpful if you'd noted that the very last of those (mine) occurred six minutes after he'd posted that - and that everyone had shut up after they'd seen that, until you bumped it two and half hours later to make your point.

    Unless you're speaking to whichever poster it was that may have reported the *other* post in question, after it had already been dealt with, in which case you're quite right to highlight the fact that they would've just added an unnecessary modding job.

    I have written to the mods in the feedback forum. Thanks to those who pointed out I desisted with the silliness and also the right I have to ask genders on this thread if any.

    I decided to step away as I had such a lovely day last Sunday I didn't want to ruin it by coming back here and being abused. Thanks for all your comments regarding trans children. I hope the recent news also informs your thoughts if you try to be both objective and think about children's health and well-being.

    I have a lot of work on now until the school holidays and may not be posting much. This is not me running away, this is me putting my beloved family and my beloved work before arguing with people online.

    To those who have decided the "other" thread is where discussions on where trans womens wants buttress women's rights, I ask that you note you are posting on a thread that has the derogatory word "terf" along with "bigot" in the title. If there is a thread with a less bias and less disgusting title I would possibly be happy to move conversation there.

    Sending kind regards to all for now x
