I'm far too unmotivated to actually hate any mumsnetters. I can barely muster the energy to hate my MIL these days. I could go for a 'MNers who I find mildly irritating' thread. Not even as irritating as a papercut really. More a hole in your sock irritating.

oh lol @ you lot plotting that mn'er hate thread with such precision grin
(not sure why I am grinning, tbh...I owuld probably end up on it, lol...although...maybe I wouldn't tend to be quite invisible

wine is the answer, definitely!

no really i am anti-social i don't really like people very much

people want to talk and know things about me ask my opinions things like that, i really can't be arsed with it

it all gets a bit too much in both respects ID when rl gets too much i have mn when mn gets too much i have rl

plus i have wine that always helps grin

sunday lunchtime is the time for mn ers i hate threads. HQ will be off doing family stuff. lets have a good ruck and clear the air

differentID Wed 28-Jan-09 23:28:25

you are not anti-social btw, you have dc.

Dalmation, I was hoping for a more rounded loathing Desi

the thread sounds good and suitably offensive

planning is what we need

when are mumsnet hq incapacitated?

let's invite them to a large fake "do" and then run amok

{I might need some serious help}

differentID Wed 28-Jan-09 23:27:16

lol sparkles.
do you mean when mn gets too much or rl?

i'm too anti-social half the time to appear on lists.....

i wander out every now and then onto threads and then quickly disappear when it all gets too much

<<<snogs desi>>>

list or no list i loves ya too grin

Desiderata Wed 28-Jan-09 23:20:37

Yes, they're always swiftly deleted grin Oooh, but for just one unfettered night grin

Of course, I'd appear loads of times, but that's the appeal, really.

Ronald, you might make mine. I like your posts, by and large.

<inspects finger nails ...>

differentID Wed 28-Jan-09 23:13:40

Desi, I think someone did at th eheight of the troll fest last autumn. Was swiftly deleted iirc.

Ronaldinhio Wed 28-Jan-09 23:11:01

Nah, there are only a few in my list and I'd rather watch for their posts

might I make yours?

bad press being better than no press

Desiderata Wed 28-Jan-09 23:08:24

Ah, don't get too excited. You were just in a list.

Am I the only one that would fucking love to do a MN'ers you hate thread?

Ah, bad form .... <mutters peevishly>

lol...never noticed that disclaimer...it really is funny and UQD is right there should be something on all teh sections...

did you? i am honoured smile

<<<goes off to vainly seek out thread>>>

Desiderata Wed 28-Jan-09 23:02:45

He he he! I guess you're aware of my more recent faux pas grin

What can I say? You either get me or you don't.

Did you notice I put your miserable arse up on a 'Who's my favourite MNer thread?'

pmsl Desi......you wouldn't do something like that would you? shock

oh wait ..... you have already grin

Desiderata Wed 28-Jan-09 22:53:56

It makes me larf too!

One of my fave occupations on an AIBU topic, when everyone is cooing and saying, 'No, darling, you're not being unreasonable at all, is to wade in and tell them they're an unreasonable twathead.

It's funny how nasty they can get .. wink

UnquietDad Wed 28-Jan-09 22:51:28

margo - mainly with the woo-mongers....

MARGOsBeenPlayingWithMyNooNoo Wed 28-Jan-09 22:51:04

Oh UQD, I've missed posts like these from you. Where have you been hiding?

pmsl UQD grin

UnquietDad Wed 28-Jan-09 22:47:42

All the sections should have a disclaimer, shouldn't they?

TV: "Note: this section includes people discussing their favourite TV shows as if they are real. They know they are not. Please do not feel the need to point this out. Yes, John Barrowman is very good-looking. He is also gay, so forget it."

Dadsnet: "Note: this section includes blokes talking about sport and computers and their birds and stuff. If you don't like it, sod off."

Phil/Rel/Spir: "Note: this section, as you might guess, features people talking about god and woo and crystals and shit which cannot be supported with logical evidence. If you are a rational type, it may be best for your blood-pressure if you butt out for a bit."

Chicken Keepers: "Yes, it's about keeping chickens. You have a point?"

Legal/financial: "This section, by its nature, will have some posts from people moaning that, in the current economic climate, they are finding it very difficult to get by on Hubby's 100K a year and may have to let the gardener and cleaner go. Please be sympathetic if you have six kids and one can of beans to feed them on until your next Giro."

yes exactly DIFF - cyborgs

tis the only feasible explanation

differentID Wed 28-Jan-09 22:42:55

well thanks sparkles.

Korma, anyone who says they are non-hormonal must be cyborgs.
