to compile a list of pointless/annoying AIBU responses for MNHQ to outlaw?

Other than troll hunting and personal abuse etc.

eg: "don't you have anything better to worry about?"

Yes of course I fucking do. Just because I posted something doesn't mean it is the only cunting thing I care about!

All the "I lived at the bottom of a lake and had to eat sewage, you should be grateful to have anything" bollocks. Chaz is right, it's annoying and irrelevant. There is always someone who has it worse. However, the OP's issues are the OP's issues so be empathetic.

Or when you say "I am worried about X happening if I do Y"

and people are all "Well I did X and Y didn't happen"

Okay so assuming I am you and there is no random element then that's a great help....cheers.

paradise yeah I remember that...so very two faced MN can be at times...

Gawd, anything to do with grips, get one/buy one/put one on the bleeding shopping list.

Fuck Off!

You sound lovely.

"Wow. Just .... Wow."
Brings me out in a rash. I can imagine the person saying it and I want to throw custard pies in her pompous, sanctimonious face.

You sound like a journalist...

Pandemoniaa Wed 27-Mar-13 16:04:10

Could you expand this slightly to include OPs? Thus outlawing any thread in AIBU that starts: "I know I'm NOT BU..."

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:04:41

Any mention of grammar tbh.

Some poor sod is pouring out their heart and get "it's mildly interesting that this shit is happening to you but what really gets me going is your use of their instead of there"

Time and a place people...

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:05:26

oh yes we can cover banned OP's as well!

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:06:28

I am having big problems on this thread....because a tiny part of my forgets what it is about and takes each comment as an actual comment on my actual OP.

I very nearly just told you all that I'm not a journalist....

Paragraphs!

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:07:01

para another classic....and one I personally get a lot blush

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:08:27

yup MN should do an autoreplace of 'grips' for ....hm let me see...how about 'tigers'

"you seem to have misplaced your TIGER, let me get you a new one"

Yup that works.

KellyElly Wed 27-Mar-13 16:08:34

I feel sorry for your children and other such passive aggressive bollocks!

I don't like people just posting a 'score'.

Why? Is this troll hunting? Seems stupid.

ICBINEG Wed 27-Mar-13 16:10:57

yeah scores must be troll hunting....

Jalopeno Wed 27-Mar-13 16:11:09

Just read this to my DH and he says x/y/z (usually something inane)

Thank god you posted your DH's opinion. The thread couldn't have continued otherwise.

"Walk a mile in their shoes"

No, actually I won't because...

A) I have unusually small feet

B) I don't want to actually have to suffer the same problem as every OP in order to answer them.

C) I'm incredibly lazy and would rather catch the bus if I'm going to have to travel a mile.

D) What if the 'shoes' happen to be Crocs???

YouTheCat Wed 27-Mar-13 16:11:55

I've been wondering about the score thing. If you think someone is a troll, just report them. You don't have to tell the whole of MN in an 'ooooh I'm telling' way.

Nancy66 Wed 27-Mar-13 16:12:18

I've also seen

"haven't you posted this before?"

..like there's a limit to how many times a person is allowed to post about a problem.
