To suggest banning those cliquey type threads which don't belong in AIBU?

The ones where anybody new to MN doesn't have a clue what anybody is on about and which aren't really an AIBU but rather a pointless attempt to attract attention/be funny/demonstrate their matey-ness with the rest of the MN clique?
Not saying their isn't a place for such threads just saying shift them off AIBU to stop other users wasting precious seconds of their life clicking. N them.

The 'some people wouldn't recognise the truth' thread being a v obvious example.

Eh?

usualsuspect Wed 03-Apr-13 11:40:30

You do know you can hide threads on here

MissAnnersley Wed 03-Apr-13 11:41:50

Don't click on them then.

The 'some people wouldn't recognise the truth' is a thread by someone stalking a mner on which some people have posted because its odd.

I think stalky threads are not really approved of anyone.

Or is it the comments supporting the mner and joking to cheer her up that you object to?

As far as I can tell that thread is someone on here being trolled by someone in rl.

If the seconds of your life are so precious then why bother being on here at all, you don't know if any thread will be worth your time? confused

I was joking on that thread because I didn't know what the fuck it was about. Is that not allowed on MN now?

If you had spent a couple more seconds you could have figured out that it wasn't a cliquey thread at all. And now I have wasted seconds reading a thread about a cliquey thread that isn't actually a cliquey thread.

It's all a tragic waste of energy.

MissAnnersley Wed 03-Apr-13 11:47:03

It was such a strange thread. I was surprised to see it was still here this morning TBH.

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 03-Apr-13 11:47:31

Oh FFS.

Simontowers1 Wed 03-Apr-13 11:47:57

Well it looked cliquey. Why hasn't I been removed if it is a stalker? It's annoying.

Simontowers1 Wed 03-Apr-13 11:48:31

It

My [sadface] is even sadder than yours, Pag.

--> sad

MissAnnersley Wed 03-Apr-13 11:49:19

Annoying? In what way? Just don't click on it.

Can we ban threads moaning about threads?

usualsuspect Wed 03-Apr-13 11:51:01

I don't understand.<cries a bit>

Why not join in on some of the cliquey threads and get to "know" people.

Your suggestion is like walking into a pub and telling people that they shouldn't be sitting chatting to their friends, because you don't understand what they are talking about.

It is a very odd thing to say, don't you think?

PickledInAPearTree Wed 03-Apr-13 11:51:51

Want me to stroke your hair? Or knock you out? Might be less painful than trying to make sense of mumsnet today.

MsNobodyAgain Wed 03-Apr-13 11:52:29

I look at them then hide them. No big deal. I am sure a few people have hidden my threads in the past.

Did you know threads about threads are banned though op?

PickledInAPearTree Wed 03-Apr-13 11:52:40

It's not even a cliquey thread. I think 75% of the posters are the same person.

Suppose that's the ultimate clique though.

usualsuspect Wed 03-Apr-13 11:54:32

Are you connected to the goings on on that thread,OP? < narrows eyes>

Pagwatch Wed 03-Apr-13 11:56:15

It's all very odd.
