She only got to Page 35 before mentioning Greggs sausage rolls.

Come on out yourself.

I remember her being here [gimmer].

She wrote a fantastic feature for the Times about how fab MN was and mentioned the names of a few posters. And that meant, of course, that there was an almighty row about it.

And I don't think she ever came back.

That thread makes me sad for the old days.

I bet she was a Moldie. There is no way the arselicky bastards would have left her out.

I don't know why I felt the need to call them that. I wasn't even here then and I have no idea who they were, nor do I care. confused

that's fine. so long as I know who she was I don't really care about anyone else. grin]

I have often wondered who certain posters might be - I have often thought one or two sound a bit like various commics -

Victoria wood, Dawn French and Frankie Boyle.

Jesus H Christ i was on MN in 2007 and never knew. grin

Yes lots of lovely names on there, boco and morningpaper.

I am not one for 'awww MN in the old days was so much better' but christ it is a bag of shite on here lately. Too many thickos.

I have been on here 6 years.

I swear to god if someone else says 'gonna' or 'ur' instead of your I am going to KICK SOME ASS.

2007. Wow. Twitter hadn't even been invented.

Dawn French doesn't even own a computer. She wrote her book longhand. Can you imagine? shock

It's shame she's not here. she would be a blast. I reckon Catherine Tate has been here. Some of her characters are MN through and through. This is a goldmine for comedy writers. All writers, let's face it.

I can't stand her.
I'm sure she thinks highly of me as well. hmm
I read her book a few years ago. Didn't like it.
I follow her in twitter, dunno why, she annoys me!

And I don't know why I don't like her. blush

I'd put money on Lauren Laverne lurking on here at the very least. <starts thread about new Flaming Lips album>

Arf at Po and sepia-tinted memories.

In those days you didn't have to put an enormous LIGHT-HEARTED siren in a thread title.

Was it Boco who posted "I ama size 22 and I have £100 to spend on treating myself, what should I buy?" and someone posted "A handbag?".

Oh I think I vaguely remember that (God, the hours I spent on here, interested in the minutiae of strangers' lives).

I have no strong feelings either way on Lucy Mangan.

MarmaladeTwatkins Thu 07-Feb-13 14:13:14

I reckon she lurks here but doesn't post.

I've gone off her a bit and I was a proper fangirl. She bums India Knight too much to be a genuine, bona fide Good Person.

Yes, here I go again, on about IK but that is my opinion thangeweverymuch.
