I mean, it's always been quite fighty. Now it's so angry, it's really quite a strange place to be.

Does anyone else think so?

MN is a strange place to be today in general.

MrsLouisTheroux Mon 21-Jan-13 19:22:25

I don't like the cryptic threads. Weird, don't make sense ones where the same people seem to pile onto (including MN moderators) talking in the same way. Not sure what they are about. grin hmm

You need to go on the cake thread. It'll help you to chill out and forget all those angry parking threads. Promise you'll feel much better after.

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Mon 21-Jan-13 19:24:53

The cake thread is a keeper!

CruCru Mon 21-Jan-13 19:25:26

Sounds good. I've just had a flick through some of the threads on here and they are so disproportionately angry it's given me a headache.

CruCru Mon 21-Jan-13 19:25:52

Please link to the cake thread?

MrsLouisTheroux Mon 21-Jan-13 19:26:35

Link to cake thread please! I need a grin

CruCru Mon 21-Jan-13 20:36:21

Oh for heaven's sake. This is what I mean by disproportionate.

DoItToJulia Mon 21-Jan-13 21:10:41

YANBU. See, I told you!

CaptainVonTrapp Mon 21-Jan-13 21:21:53

Disproportionate yes but angry no. Not of that agressive in-fighting and hate. Just one bizarre OP and a lot of laughs.

CruCru Mon 21-Jan-13 21:27:26

Ah yes, I see what you mean.

HoneyDragon Mon 21-Jan-13 21:28:33

Do you mean ones like

AIBU to park my car at the top of the driveway as its icy?

Fuck you op. Fuck your car. And fuck your counting driveway you fucker. [with no trace of tongue in cheek]

In terms of weird angriness?

HoneyDragon Mon 21-Jan-13 21:29:49

Cunting driveway.

A counting driveway would be handy if you couldn't remember who many cars you had though.

TheVermiciousKnid Mon 21-Jan-13 21:30:21

I've always wanted a counting driveway. It could count cars going past our house (not a lot) or maybe tractors (slightly more). Or maybe even snow flakes, if it's very good at counting.

I'm very sad that I don't have a counting driveway. sad

HoneyDragon Mon 21-Jan-13 21:33:47

Now I want a counting driveway, sad

Oooh and a singing doorstep

HearMyRoar Mon 21-Jan-13 21:35:36

I don't even have a driveway...or a door step. sad

TheVermiciousKnid Mon 21-Jan-13 21:37:03

How about a singing doorstep and a singing gate. They could sing a duet together while the counting driveway counts trolls.

WifeofPie Mon 21-Jan-13 21:37:44

It's January and there is a lot of snow which, I think, is really hard for many people. Haven't y'all seen the shining?

SecretNutellaFix Mon 21-Jan-13 21:38:11

How about a tap-dancing welcome mat?

That would be impressive.

LexiesGirl Mon 21-Jan-13 21:39:47

Yeah, it seems to be a bit harsher than usual recently. I sometimes get the impression that there are posters who are having a bad day generally and are taking their frustrations out online, which is kind of ok but some poor OPs get an absolute flaming for no reason.

And the cryptic ones make me a hmm. They can be a bit madly cliquey, especially if you look at posters names and see that it is regulars having an in-joke chat. But then you can just close the thread and not read it. Though I do worry (well, not 'worry', I mean I'm not up all night thinking about it) that newbies might get put off if they stumble across a few of those threads in quick succession.

Have I missed some corkers today then?

LexiesGirl Mon 21-Jan-13 21:41:07

Oh, and a tap-dancing welcome mat would win my vote.

HoneyDragon Mon 21-Jan-13 22:20:13

Heeeeeeere's Honey!

Ahem. You were saying?

FrustratedSycamoresRocks Mon 21-Jan-13 22:48:32

honeydragon I just misread your post and had visions of a tap dancing singing doormat shouting "here's horny!"

I'm not sure what my drive could count. Seagulls maybe. hmm

WifeofPie Mon 21-Jan-13 23:20:04

grin

DoodlesNoodles Mon 21-Jan-13 23:24:40

I do believe there is some trolley going on hmm

Its the very nearly believable ones that are the irritating ones.

And, if it's not trolls it's posters getting REALLY ANGRY.angry and mean sad

CruCru Tue 22-Jan-13 00:02:00

Yes, it's all the people who are Really Angry All the Time. It's damn exhausting.

CruCru Tue 22-Jan-13 00:04:49

And the cake one was made up. Humph.
