After years of hearing about how influential and "middle class" MN is. I am I being unreasonable to think that I have found it (over past few months - so can't judge beyond this) a bit "meh2! A lot of the postings appear to be attention-seeking, middle-of-the-road and basically dull. Am I missing something?

Shock Horror! Something isn't like what the media says it is!!!!

So because ive said you are being slightly offensive by finding MN boring and choosing to start a thread about it, i am a cyber bully? Well shag me sideways with a stick, how have I not noticed. Clearly im not middle classed enough. Back t'ot mines with me.

What is it you want? Do you want tales of whether to buy that 3 bedroomed holiday home, whether to put twigs in vases or not? Whether or not toast should be done only on one side?

Is this a you are all bullies thread?

We haven't had one for, ooooh at least a week.

Tulisalover- YES, NO, GOD NO BOTH SIDES.

Did you want it to be middle class and influential then, and are disappointed?

TulisaLover Mon 12-Nov-12 22:29:25

Genuinely interested in a concrete example of what the problems you thought you would find are - that would help us understand immeasurably.

Ohh usual your bollocks are back grin

Not sure what you mean, are there too many common people on here?

Shall we have them removed?

Tweasels Mon 12-Nov-12 22:29:46

Oh no, not me. I am lovely to everyone in "cyber world" but I'm a bastard in the school yard.

usualsuspect3 Mon 12-Nov-12 22:29:48

There are some right common people on MN like me

I am middle-class and influential, in my spare time...

WorraLiberty Mon 12-Nov-12 22:30:31

Is "meh2" some sort of code?

OwedToAutumn Mon 12-Nov-12 22:30:46

It's all right, OP. You don't have to like MN. Lots of people don't. Liz Jones, Samantha Brick, Matthew Wright.......

StrawberriesTasteLikeLipsDo Mon 12-Nov-12 22:30:46

Are you
A. A daily fail reporter unhappy with the slimness of article fodder pickings?

Yes, I've never quite understood why Sting likes it done only on one side. Superb lyric though.

That was my intentional no comment...now obsolete due to this comment!

Apart from the occasional wander I actually haven't strayed far from AIBU either as don't have much time on my hands but if I do need advice or support I know that MNetters will be there to provide it.

For entertainment value though AIBU is where it's at grin
