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.

Never mind, I understand now. Didn't name change to complain about your pal; I name change just cos I feel like it. And no need to welcome me, been here years, ta very much smile

EuniceDumbsdown Thu 04-Apr-13 20:14:11

"then we can all give Eunicedumbsdown the welcome to mumsnet she needs. So kind of her to pop in"

What are you going on about babyjaguar?

LaQueen Wed 03-Apr-13 19:36:56

No, I don't see cliqies at all, I have no idea what they are...

I don't see cliques is what I meant.

LaQueen Wed 03-Apr-13 19:36:15

I must have something wrong with my eye-sight...because I simply don't see cliqies, and I never, ever have. Not on MN, nor IRL, to be honest.

What I see is groups of people, who obviously know each other (for whatever) reason. And, I think 'Oh, I like the look/sound of them, I shall try to get to know them...' (or not, if I don't like the look of them, obviously).

I never approach any new social situation, automatically thinking that I have a right to be immediately noticed, or included, and instantly made to feel like I belong.

After all, why the feck should anyone be that interested in me...they don't know me yet.

I believe that, essentially it's down to me, to put some effort in, and do the leg-work, and try my best to be friendly, amenable, approachable, whatever.

It's really not that hard.

<confused> confused
I rather like it grin

Pancakeflipper Wed 03-Apr-13 17:08:53

I hate going to work - I miss all the stalker threads.

HoneyDragon Wed 03-Apr-13 17:05:00

I am not, contrary to my households beliefs, a nagger or a control freak. As I often point out, I just like it when shit happens.

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:53:43

Oh yeah.

It was your fault after all for providing the sofa.


YouTheCat Wed 03-Apr-13 15:52:13

Yes, she did. Or it might have been an accusatory look. hmm

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:50:54

"as if to say"

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:49:28


Did she then stalk of after giving you a withering look to say"I meant to do that"?

YouTheCat Wed 03-Apr-13 15:47:40

Mine came off the windowsill. Looked at me for a bit. Licked herself and then misjudged and fell off the settee.

Altinkum Wed 03-Apr-13 15:46:29

This place is just simply going to the dogs! Stoopid post and stoopid threads!

whattodoo Wed 03-Apr-13 15:46:27

My head is hurting right now.

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:46:19

So... Back to cats.

Mine are glaring at me balefully.

Altinkum Wed 03-Apr-13 15:45:54

Is love to know who all these clique people are.

I've been on here years. What I have seen is people getig to know each other, get alone and shockingly at times disagree with one another also.

Just like RL THEN, I know hundreds of people, I suppose I'm all their posey then!!

Musta be so good being the top diggity dog, and being in my clique.

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:45:19


Simontowers1 Wed 03-Apr-13 15:39:57

To the poster further up - I didn't join just to support that stalker bloke. In any case I wasn't even supporting him. And how would I have even have known that thread was going on if I hadn't already joined in any case?

PickledInAPearTree Wed 03-Apr-13 15:21:23

She's annoyed you've taken away her high moral ground.

YouTheCat Wed 03-Apr-13 15:02:29

Mine is overheating on the windowsill. So I opened the window on the other more shady windowsill. But she sits there still, panting and looking at me malevolently.

Maryz Wed 03-Apr-13 15:01:04

AIBU to wonder why anyone in their right minds would have a cat?

<glares balefully at one cat asleep on clean washing and other one winding up dog>

PickledInAPearTree Wed 03-Apr-13 14:46:40

My cat comes in eats ONE biscuit and leaves again.

He really is a furry bastard.

You can't catsplain. They have heads full of toys.

GetOeuf Wed 03-Apr-13 14:43:14
