to feel let down by mumsnet

A friend has been raving about mumsnet and said that i should join as it is "like talking to friends who are supportive, friendly and who give sound advice." I have been lurking on mn and have been reading lots of threads and have been put off from starting a thread myself because i found some of the replies really quite un friendly (to say the least) and some sound quite rude. I realize that mn prides its self on being a 'no nonsense' type of forum and life isnt all flowers and fluffy clouds, and that sometimes the truth isnt always 'nice' but i was quite shocked at some of the 'un sisterly' comments.

I find that the trouble is that, alongside the 99 nice posts on every thread, there's always some bell-end who says something so pompous or sanctimonious you wonder how on earth they make it through the day without someone taking a rusty chainsaw to their head.

So I do see what you mean, but most people on here are sane.

MN changed me. I used to think I was a nice intelligent person.
MN taught me I'm also and ignorant bitch.

Someone on MN once told me I should be shot, on a relationships thread. There are some mean and bitter people on here. ( and some lovely ones too..!)
