hmm

Like that?

grin

AgentZigzag Mon 26-Sep-11 21:20:17

Does anyone know why they've chosen flowers over a catsbum mouth?

Apart from the fact that the biscuit looks a bit like a cats arse, but they could get over that by using a black cat with a white choc starfish?

SamsungAndDelilah Mon 26-Sep-11 21:20:24

yanbu. I thought the flower was a good way of telling someone to f off back to hunnyville.

I can see that happening.

SamsungAndDelilah Mon 26-Sep-11 21:21:26

the biscuit does not look like my cat's arse. Does your cat have jaundice and haemmeroids zigzag

AgentZigzag Mon 26-Sep-11 21:22:12

I'm a bit ashamed of flowers actually, the media will think MN is going soft.

And then where will we be?

Not on Matthew Wright that's for sure.

Actually, I like the way that the flowers clash with the angry face. perhaps I am being won over.

AuraofDora Mon 26-Sep-11 21:24:37

truly shit

Ok people, go to Active threads, then the first thread is about the new emoticon, it's about thanking some lovely mnetters especially those contributing to the blankets nut also a chance to thank anyone who has helped you personally and explain why, kind of a nomination thingy. smile

AgentZigzag Mon 26-Sep-11 21:25:03

My cat has asked me not to discuss her medical history on a public internet forum Samsung.

It can be used I suppose like the Bonsoir Anna passive aggressive smiley.

In that you post something very cutting but try and sweeten the blow with a smiley.

'perhaps you should consider a hobby, or perhaps a job' smile

Hassled Mon 26-Sep-11 21:27:18

And what are the flowers? I mean what type? Where's the botanical accuracy?
They really didn't think this through, did they? Tsk.

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:28:05

I felt very bad earlier - I posted somethinh along the lines of 'what is this SHIT NOW' and a very kind MNer came on and posted a link to the reasoning behind it.

I asked mnhq to delete the thread so I didn't look like a complete arsewipe.

I really don't like all the daft emoticons though.

Is that bastard bear still here?

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:29:34

hassled I wondered that.

They look like a load of busy lizzies. Or those cheap and nasty geraniums.

I mean, this is mumsnet. They could have drawn a nice lily, or orchid, or something.

The flowers look a bit netmumsy

SamsungAndDelilah Mon 26-Sep-11 21:29:42

hmm I just read the thank you thread. It's all nice and lovely and serious and I feel like a bit of a cow now.

I still think there's a bit of an emoticon imbalance. Given the proportion of mn comments taken up by dark humour/witicism/scathing criticism/catty comments, I think the list of available smileys doesn't really do the site justice.

LynnCSchreiber Mon 26-Sep-11 21:29:58

I would have preferred something less bright, more single rose than cheap garage flowers.

But the idea is nice.

Yes the bastard bear is still there grin

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:31:25

I get the point behind the sentiment, I really do.

I like the flowers and the feeling behind them.

But if we keep the flowers please PLEASE then can we get rid of that biscuit, bear and mug with the cannabis leaf on?

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:32:26

We do need a nastybastard emoticon as well I think.

I have been asking for a [twat] emoticon for years. I think we could put that to good use.

Yeah, someone suggested a foot in mouth emoticon earlier !

Or Getorfs twaticon suggestion was good too grin

AgentZigzag Mon 26-Sep-11 21:32:48

I like that GetOrf -

'If you're getting upset and thinking people are bullying you, it might be a good idea if you had some time away from the computer? thanks'

we need a [vomit]
But keeping the bear - I am fully prepared for a full scale fight to the MN-ban wih GOML over this issue

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:33:51

agent that is it EXACTLY.

I do love a good passive aggressive put down. grin

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:35:36

Just because you have got an emoticon which describes your name stealth.

I will shut up about the bastardbear™ when I get a getorfmoiland emoticon - which could be a farmer in a smock, with a scythe. grin

purplepidjinawoollytangle Mon 26-Sep-11 21:35:46

Because I'm working on the fifth, Lydiathetattooedlady is working on the sixth, IvySedai is working on the seventh and KnottyLocks is working on the eighth and ninth blankets to show support to bereaved MNers and/or their families.

A thanks is the least that can be done for the approximately 500 posters who have donated money, time and skills.

Please at least give it more than five hours before subverting it - there were at least two consultation threads running last month!!

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 21:35:46

I used the flowers to congratulate a MNer on her BFP rather than as a thanks, but when I saw what they stood for I thought of the blankets.

I still have the flowers that my DS (who is autistic) picked and gave to me on the day that Leo's family were saying goodbye to their beloved son.

Thinking about it now, although I can see how they might be used in a PA way, perhaps they shouldn't be. We have biscuits and pombears for that.

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:37:13

purplepidjinawoollytangle I totally agree - I think it is marvellous what is being done re the blankets, no offense meant.

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 21:38:30

You are right youwin - actually it would take the piss completely to use them in a PA way.

Sorry - bad taste. That's twice I have done that today.

Here you are, GetOrf - just for you:

bear

purplepidjinawoollytangle Mon 26-Sep-11 21:43:48

I'm not offended, just trying to point out that the "haters" are in the minority grin

There are hundreds more MNers posting advice, sharing experiences, giving Christmas hampers - it seems that the blanketty among us are the most <ahem> vocal about wanting an emoticon blush

I like the congratulations one, btw YouWin!

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 21:43:51

It didn't click immediately with me either GetOrf having seen none of the threads.

Don't feel bad, you're lovely.

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 21:44:41

Oh cheers purple - I just saw it and thought it might be an appropriate alternative use. Thanks for adding it smile

Thank KnottyLocks and RatherBeOnThePiste - they've been stomping all over the place about the [star] we were typing!!!

I'm just a little bit chuffed, actually and trying not to let DP see it's a bit pathetic really

I like them. I think the colours are vaguely Constance Spry and therefore very MN wink. Lilies and orchids are more NM, imho, ten a naffing penny.

I say lose the bear. My only worry is, how will they make the flowers Christmassy?

YouWinOrYouDie Mon 26-Sep-11 21:56:04

We need Poinsettias.

Definitely.

Rindercella Mon 26-Sep-11 22:16:40

Aw, all you fecking naysayers, here's a nice bunch of thanks for you. Calm down now smile

Is that passive aggressive enough for you? hmm

Saggyoldclothcatpuss Mon 26-Sep-11 22:26:23

I am really not sure about the flowers! Ive got a feeling its the top of a slippery slope down into moving emitocons! It will be tickers next! Before we know it, we will all be over on <<whispers>> the dark side!

I still want the [dragon] back, for scary things, or being brave, or just because it was cute and fierce

Good old Anna and her passive aggressive smileys. smile

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 22:39:49

grin anna's p/a smileys are one of the best things about mumsnet.

LynnCSchreiber Mon 26-Sep-11 22:41:00

Ooh. Shame. It is not on the app. Could you add it please, tech. thanks

I like to call her Anna even though her name doesn't say it.

I'm sometimes of the mind that she and LeQueen are made up my MNHQ to keep us all entertained.

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 22:46:20

Anna, LeQueen, Moondog, Cod, Xenia and Gabbylogon.

All Justine's alter egos.

Gabby is a computer program, learning from us in order to pass the Turing test and win the prize for MNHQ.

AgentZigzag Mon 26-Sep-11 22:53:20

Please don't say Gabz is GetOrf, I use him as a benchmark as to how I'm doing in RL, ie if he starts makes sense, I need help grin

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 23:09:33

I am really really laughing at this, and my daughter (go to fucking bed) asked what I am laughing at and I showed her.

She looked shock and asked me if this is what normally goes on on mumsnet. grin

GetOrfMo1Land Mon 26-Sep-11 23:10:39

WinterIsComing Mon 26-Sep-11 23:17:38

It could have been better phrased though.

But yes, it is quite bizarre discussing verbal etiquette regarding requests for the composition of the word, "cunt" in flowers and smileys.

Only on MN...

WinterIsComing Mon 26-Sep-11 23:20:00

No worries CS. It is late and who would have a cunt in them on a Monday night after all that hard work?

CauldronsTrulyReign Mon 26-Sep-11 23:29:20

ColdSancerre Tue 27-Sep-11 10:53:45

I've been thinking about cunt, and I'm not sure it would work as the fuck off were all 3 smilies wide by 5 smilies tall, whereas the N would need to be 5 by 5.

Unless it was done in lower caps?

fit2drop Tue 27-Sep-11 11:05:30

pmsl, only on MN could the statement "I've been thinking about cunt, and I'm not sure it would work as the fuck off were all 3 smilies wide " be read and the quandry be understood.

So sorry Nethuns, but whenever I see your name it makes me think of Nether Regions.

As in Holland, etc.

ColdSancerre Tue 27-Sep-11 12:59:59

nethuns they were merely another floral tribute to another possibly ex mumsnetter and they were so beautiful that you would have wept. MNHQ didn't want weepy mners so they deleted them.

PLEASE do it again.

Darn it, Rebecca, we've told you quite a few times already that using the flowers emoticon in a sweary way doesn't work in an email... <norty>

ColdSancerre Wed 28-Sep-11 10:41:28

Tut Helen you thread killer being mean to the lovely Rebecca who we all love ;)

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 28-Sep-11 11:30:40

AdamTech is most impressed with your sweary efforts.

How long did that take?

ColdSancerre Wed 28-Sep-11 21:59:16

Not long. The, erm, cow related one was hardest but it only takes ten mins if you concentrate.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 28-Sep-11 22:10:02

I think we're better when we're smilier and less passive aggressive myself:

<<standing ovulation>>

Olivia you have way too much free time.

<<emails Justine>>

CauldronsTrulyReign Wed 28-Sep-11 22:17:10

Oh.

Excellent crossage with Rebecca.

grin

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 28-Sep-11 22:19:27

What's all this? [cracks whip]

CauldronsTrulyReign Wed 28-Sep-11 22:21:06

Quick, Olivia, run, she hasn't spotted your slackering arse yet.

AgentZigzag Wed 28-Sep-11 22:21:56

Oh.

I saw OliviaMN had posted, and thought that with Rebecca and Helen on the thread too (and the PA teas being thrown at each other earlier), there was going to be a bit of a MNHQ public brawl going on.

Now that would be a thread to go into classics wouldn't it? grin

And by looking at how 'cunt' was used, we'd be able to work out which trolls post from MNHQ grin

stitchthis Wed 28-Sep-11 22:25:37

Either I'm colour blind or I can't read this on my phone. Wah!

Btw there's a reason it's called cross stitch

ColdSancerre Wed 28-Sep-11 22:31:21

Olivia fabulous!!!

CauldronsTrulyReign Wed 28-Sep-11 22:34:00

I asked for it to go in Classics last night AgentZ.

It needs to go in front of the Classic Upgrade Nomination Team apparently.

wink

stitchthis Wed 28-Sep-11 22:36:10

No there's a job

stitchthis Wed 28-Sep-11 22:36:39

no now , doh

LynnCSchreiber Wed 28-Sep-11 22:38:42

Now, if someone could do a big

DELETED BY MNHQ

then MNHQ could post that when a poster is nasty.

Wouldn't that distract everyone and stop bun fights in their tracks?

ColdSancerre Wed 28-Sep-11 22:43:59

I think the fuck off would work just as well for that Mme.

AgentZigzag Wed 28-Sep-11 22:50:20

If passing flowers around didn't work for the tree hugging hippies in the 60's Mme, I don't fancy it's chances with a bunch of cunts fiesty women nowadays.

They'd be ripped to shreds and stamped into the mud before you could hit refresh grin

If I could work out how to do a W I'd do TWAT as I'm a tad bored at work this afternoon.

They look like garage flowers as well which no MN'er would ever buy. I think its a bit cringe for MN not in its spirit at all.

heggertyhaggerty Fri 30-Sep-11 13:31:49

Oh no they're anemones/ well possibly lego flowers, but IRL they would be anemones.

Would this be the right moment to raise the issue of the Reverse Biscuit again?

Thumbwitch Wed 02-Nov-11 13:25:45

If we can't have a [boak] emoticon, then we're not having a [pus] one either - I don't mind the pic of someone vomiting, because I am not an emetophobe - but I would probably [boak] if I saw a giant pus emoticon all the time! (Or any of the time, tbh)

Thumbwitch Fri 04-Nov-11 00:32:12

I have asked for the Chat thread to be moved out of chat so it can be saved for posterity - hope the lovely MNHQ listen and agree! (Stranded, it is a spanking spunking cock, excellent! grin)

Thumbwitch Sun 06-Nov-11 12:21:16

YAY! Thank you Rebecca and MNHQ - the other thread is now saved for posterity in Other Subjects. All your hard work has not been In Vain - it is Safe. grin
