Which threads get you hooked?

Which threads do you rush to hide because you feel the rage when you read them?? grin

I love a good wedding thread and the 'joint finances' threads grin

I have to hide the threads about SAHP housework roles and also the BF/FF threads. I also hide a lot of the MIL threads too actually grin

I hate threads about weight/food.

HazelMcWitch Fri 25-Mar-16 08:14:38

If you love a good wedding thread, please come and have look at mine grin

Me, I like an embarrassing moment thread, a fart thread (there's a hilarious one on the go at the moment) and I also like a MIL thread (because I had a nightmare one). I also like ones where the OP is posting about an annoying person at work.

Can't be doing with FF/BF, finances or career type ones.

madmotherof2 Fri 25-Mar-16 08:16:55

I love household ones! How often do you wash your sheets grin

Can't say I'm too keen on the diet/weight ones

Mrsmorton Fri 25-Mar-16 08:17:34

Confusing juvenile Facebook he said she said type ones. boring

OneLove10 Fri 25-Mar-16 08:19:46

Hate the 'at what age did your lo sleep through the night' and similar type ones. You get hundreds of replies telling you what their kids did and seems such pointless information.

I love a good parking thread. Hate disabled/P&C parking though. Yawn.

Enjoy a bridezilla one but only when it is beyond ridiculous, like the one when the bride wanted her best friend to decorate the venue for free, but hadn't asked her to the wedding.

Don't like MIL ones as they give me the rage. Seems to me as if some MILs can't do right for doing wrong. i.e. WTF my MIL did my ironing and cleaned the house, how dare she!

BF versus FF exceedingly boring, do what you want.

I like quirky and different threads as I've been here 11 yrs and seen it all before.

Loved Elderly Korean Lady and mexican property hijacker and pirate sex, but threads like those are few and far between.

My favourite topic is What We're Reading. I get nearly all my book recommendations from it these days.

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 08:35:24

I love a wedding thread the loonier the better dont like diet threads some of the posters hardly eat a thing.

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 08:37:53

I like random im bored or what you up to threads

CoffeeAndOranges Fri 25-Mar-16 08:40:09

I love the Telly Addicts threads that go with my favourite programs. Can ' usual follow along in real time any more thanks to baby taking up evening and then me needing to get head down early before the night wake ups so have to watch the 9pm programs on catch up. But I like to see what everyone else made of the programs.

Love a good fart/embarrassing thread or 'favourite dirty food' type ones. Lighthearted ones mainly. Really can't be arsed with the lengthy relationship/friendship woes ones, school hate bitchiness. (hoping the mums are much nicer when I am doing the school run).

Often I'll click on a thread that has loads of posts just to see what all the fuss is about.

Savagebeauty Fri 25-Mar-16 08:40:25

I love anything where the OP is fuming, angry or seething
I avoid parking, feminist and babies

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 08:43:14

Oh yes Telly threads like those. Avoid trans threads like the plague

usual Fri 25-Mar-16 08:45:23

I like chatty threads.

Hate Mil threads
Parking threads
Wedding threads
Threads about farting.

Savagebeauty Fri 25-Mar-16 08:47:46

I like the Sex topic especially when people froth about the content.
Yes to trans threads MrsJayy

Queenbean Fri 25-Mar-16 08:48:03

I hate threads on AIBU where someone says "AIBU to ask you if I should donate money to charity" and everyone piles in and says YANBU.

I like AIBU threads where the poster is being vvvvvu!

Andrewofgg Fri 25-Mar-16 08:48:05

Parking threads are always a hit.

And new baby threads!

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 08:49:02

Yew chatty there is nothing on tv on saturday night theads are nice

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 08:52:16

Yes obviously

Roussette Fri 25-Mar-16 08:55:41

Love TV threads on dross I'm watching. Sometimes the humour is just classic and I can't watch the programme properly for laughing.

Trans threads I ignore. Or threads where someone has fixed opinions and won't even listen to anyone else. Or threads asking you to sign something. I ignore a lot of threads grin

VulcanWoman Fri 25-Mar-16 09:05:29

I like bodily function threads, films, philosophy, household, DIY, decorating, house renovation, relationships, baking, food, many more.
Not too keen on wedding, baby, general wittering and many more.

luckiestgirlintheworld Fri 25-Mar-16 09:21:25

I can't stand cleanliness/hygiene related threads. They give me the rage. Do people really wash their sheets every week and hair every day?! I have to stay away from those.
I like any threads in Parenting as I have two under two so it normally always relates to me.

Queenbean Fri 25-Mar-16 09:22:31

Actually the threads that annoy me the most are the ones with really long titles. there always seem to be loads of conception ones going with titles that span four lines. It upsets my layout!

Witchend Fri 25-Mar-16 09:27:54

Like: Threads where someone is worries/needs advice and gets good support and goes away reassured.
School appeals that win after help from mn.
Ongoing tales of craziness like parking types. Probably highly exaggerated, but entertaining.
Totally crazy OPs frothing at the mouth where everyone ignores them and goes off on a totally random tangent.

Hate/hide: 100% attendance award threads. Yes, some children will never get them. I'll never get an award for art or athletics either and some children will get the frequently because they're lucky enough to be born talented at that.
Pat me on the back and say well done threads. Fine you helped a little old lady across the road. You don't need to ask if it was unreasonable so everyone can say how brilliant you are. Don't wash your clean linen in public.
School gate cliques. They're friends. Not many people arrive somewhere and think "there's that group of friends over there that I've known for years and I really like. So I'll go and stand over there with people I don't really know in case they think I'm being cliquey".
Shall I take my children on holiday in term time threads. You know the situation either do it and don't moan that you got fined or don't. A foreign holiday is not a right, and I'll bet you spend more on the term tie holiday than we do renting a little cottage in Kent. I've never even had a passport. If the only holiday you could afford is a tent in May, some sympathy. But it never is. And it will effect the child. Ds had 2 weeks off at the start of this term due to illness. There's still things coming up which he missed and he's a bright little 8yo and I've done extra catch up with him, as has the teacher.

MrsJayy Fri 25-Mar-16 09:28:04

Tbf i think the long titles are in jokes. I dont like threads thst go round in circles usuallly feeding baby milk threads they go on for pages and say the same things.
