Ive changed my name as im peeved off. I asked for a genuine bit of advice about dd2 school, and i got abuse. Everyone is so unfriendly and jump down ur throat. Its very clicky in here and they all stick togethet. At least on netmums u get a fair hearing and gd advice, its crap here.

People come on here for an ego trip and im sick of it. Have a bit if respect and decency for peoples feelings!!! Grrrrr wish it was properly monitored

Horses for courses. I like the brutal honesty and swearing. If it doesn't suit and NM does, use that. BTW I don't like NM but I don't go on there slagging them off. HTH.

scaevola Fri 11-Oct-13 22:12:28

Not everyone likes every site. This one doesn't sound right for you.

dimsum123 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:12:39

Horses for courses. If you prefer netmums just stick with that.

Pagwatch Fri 11-Oct-13 22:12:45

Yes. It's shit here. We are all wankers. Netmums is much better. I never post here.

chickydoo Fri 11-Oct-13 22:13:26

Bye then

notanyanymore Fri 11-Oct-13 22:13:31

You just have to argue back!

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Fri 11-Oct-13 22:13:48

Go back to NM confused

VerySmallSqueak Fri 11-Oct-13 22:13:49

Can't think why people wouldn't warm to you immediately op hmm

Not everyone likes up front opinions and honesty. You get banned on NetMums for anything except fluffiness. If you don't like it, leave.

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:04

Why did you change your name? Surely you could post "I started a thread here and got abuse" without namechanging. After all, you are anonymous, and if you want people to go onto your thread and be nice, you have to link to it.

nomorecrumbs Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:10

So? Everyone thought I was a poo troll but I got through it. And actually got useful advice in the end!

RandallPinkFloyd Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:12

Grrr indeed. angry

Spirulina Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:27

Ooh goady,goady....

Fair hearing?


Portofino Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:45

Its not like that at all of course. You have either been very unlucky or you are on the wind up.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 11-Oct-13 22:14:48

I wouldn't post in AIBU if you're not prepared for the bluntest end of MN.

Lilacroses Fri 11-Oct-13 22:15:22

Sorry you had a bad experience. In the few years I've been here I've seen some unhelpful, unkind comments but the vast majority are great. I didn't see your thread so can't comment on that but I hope things have improved for your son.

Dear hellogals

I am awfully sorry that you had a Rough Reception here

Lots of love

All of Mumnset x x x

there ya go folks, job done <dusts hands>

chosenone Fri 11-Oct-13 22:17:48

You're either one or the other tbh. Nethuns seems sickly sugary bollocks to me and people not as bright on a different level to here. Like breeds like and I like the honest, sometimes acervic adcuse ive had here.

chosenone Fri 11-Oct-13 22:18:19

Acerbic advice! !

moldingsunbeams Fri 11-Oct-13 22:18:20

Its an open forum, an open forum which consists of a variety of people and personalities in the same way the school playground, school gates and workplace has a variety of strong personalities.

I have had amazing advice and support both practical and emotional over the last eight years. I disagree with it being clicky. I have posted daily for the last eight years from everything from dds sen, whether I should leave now exh, marriage breakdown, emotional abuse, all kinds and always recieved amazing support yet because I name change very regularly I doubt most people know who I am.

MacaYoniandCheese Fri 11-Oct-13 22:18:42

Words on a screen.

Take a deep breath and have a few days off. We've all been flamed or lightly singed at one time or another. 'Tis one of the best bits of MN; people tell it like it is and the women that can be a nest of vipers on one thread can be incredibly helpful and supportive on others so don't write it off just yet flowers.

Awwwwww hun xxxxxx

hellogals Fri 11-Oct-13 22:18:46

Em no that was not my post mrs private investigator. This goes to show that this place has a school yard mentality. Its digusting, why do people make other people so unwelcome.
'Well ive been a member since 2008'

Who cares how long uv been a member everyone is entitled to be here!!!!
So get over it.

U should be ashamed making someone feel so bad.

I think the word is RAW not unfriendly and shit.

there will be loads of people on NM who don't agree with you and because of the atmosphere of the site the only people who respond are people who stroke you and make you feel better about your predicament.

Here... you get what people really think.. good and bad.
You like it - stay
You hate it - go.
No point at all in moaning about it.

Glendaanddennisarentinvited Fri 11-Oct-13 22:20:07

What's the purpose of this? To get thousands of people to change their ways? Apologise? Get the site changed... Or are you just ranting?

yeghoulsandlittledevils Fri 11-Oct-13 22:20:08

I've had a bit of a bad reception now and then, but when it's really mattered Mumsnet has been the best help I have had from anywhere. Netmums is good in some ways, but it's not for me.

BlingBang Fri 11-Oct-13 22:20:14

They'll all be over here soon anyway. Looks like Nm's is dying a slow death. Not that much traffic, not compared to here.

Donkeyok Fri 11-Oct-13 22:20:25

what's that buzzing noise

Tiredmumno1 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:20:41

Who is U?

Mumsnet is a great place for support, if you've been here that long you would know that.

Or have you never looked further than AIBU?

willyoulovemewhenyouknow Fri 11-Oct-13 22:24:48

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

All of us who are established posters understand the breadth of advice and probably post on here be ause of it.

I have a broader understanding of many topics since I joined.

"Who cares how long uv been a member everyone is entitled to be here!!!!

I think it's Masha Bell having a tizzy that more people won't use her exciting new spelling system.

"uv". FFS.

eleanorofacquitaine Fri 11-Oct-13 22:25:04

I imagine places like nethuns to be faux friendly with all the 'hunning' and oink glitter (I may be wrong). Never noticed any unfriendliness here.

eleanorofacquitaine Fri 11-Oct-13 22:25:21

pink, not oink blush

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:25:34

So where has everyone been bitchy?

I genuinely want to know.

Because if I ran into my local pub, gathered everyone around and said "you are a bunch of bullying bitches and I hate it here", I suspect one or two people might say "bugger off then".

I wouldn't then tell them they were childish and should be ashamed of themselves. Well, I might, but if I did I should really expect a bit more abuse.

ilovesooty Fri 11-Oct-13 22:25:38

I can't imagine why you feel so unwelcome... might be your attitude of course.

Still, don't let us keep you if you'd rather post elsewhere.

JakeBullet Fri 11-Oct-13 22:25:49

Welcome to mumsnet! it is huge and diverse here.

It can be off putting as well at times but there are wonderful aspects to it.

Check out the bereavement support threads, the blankets which are made for bereaved parents by MNers....lots of people knit or crochet squares which someone else puts together into a huge blanker made with love.

The Christmas thread....people donate freely to ensure others who might be having a crappy time have a lovely surprise at Xmas.

Lots of good here. Not seen your thread but sorry if it's been a horribleness response.

Stravy Fri 11-Oct-13 22:26:04

I don't like NM, so I don't go there.

Alisvolatpropiis Fri 11-Oct-13 22:26:09

grin at Pedlar

God, I'd taken the first few responses I had when I joined to heart I'd have fucked off and never come back again. As it is I rather like being told straight (I was being a fool) so accepted (not entirely graciously) and moved on.

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:26:32

I'm prepared to be nice too.

It's been very clicky indeed.
Esp. after that thread.

hellogals Fri 11-Oct-13 22:27:26

My post was last wk and i just read the rest of comments tonite. Feel abused to be honest. More traffic than netmums, yes thats because people pist things about penis dunking - so bloody mature

And dont be rude??? If u were treated this way ud feel the same!!

tillyo Fri 11-Oct-13 22:27:33

I haven't been on here long but found everyone helpful and friendly. Maybe people just didn't agree with your post. X

PedlarsSpanner Fri 11-Oct-13 22:27:49

ROAR at oink glitter pahahahahhaha Eleanor

HavantGuard Fri 11-Oct-13 22:28:23

Aw. Did you not get the advice you wanted about your daughter's imaginary school stress?


HeeHiles Fri 11-Oct-13 22:28:39

I've just had a flashback and remembered why I am here!!! I was banned from NetMums!! I can't remember what for though......

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:28:48


And, no I wouldn't be the same as you. I wouldn't come on and say "you are all bitches". If I had reason to say that some people were bitches, I would link to the thread and prove it.

Why not do that and we can all see for ourselves?

If there was a thread, that is.

<scatters oink glitter everywhere>

ScrambledSmegs Fri 11-Oct-13 22:29:29

oink glitter


Sorry OP, most people here are actually trying to be helpful. They just tend to operate by giving you the advice you need, not the advice you want though. I can imagine it can look harsh if you're used to a different style of posting.

Pagwatch Fri 11-Oct-13 22:29:45

You know the people posting on your thread might not be any of the people responding to you now.

What was your problem?

I thought Rough Reception was a hidden clue.

Glad I didn't bother advance searching. grin

I quite fancy some oink glitter though.

EarthMither Fri 11-Oct-13 22:30:42

For the love of god OP, please stop typing "u" / "ud" / "uv" and just type the bloody words in full - text-speak will not do anything to enhance your bid for sympathy and understanding here

ThePinkOcelot Fri 11-Oct-13 22:31:19

She said that wasn't the thread havant

I can't stand your text speak or whatever those bizarre abbreviations are so I can't be arsed to talk to you. Soz. <<< irony

puntasticusername Fri 11-Oct-13 22:32:30

I want oink glitter. WHY IS OINK GLITTER NOT A THING? Come on Peppa Pig merchandisers, I can't believe you missed such a trick...

They just tend to operate by giving you the advice you need, not the advice you want though.


LazyMonkeyButler Fri 11-Oct-13 22:32:46

Oh dear, I am sorry you feel this way. To be honest, there are some unnecessarily bitchy comments on MN sometimes - but there are also some amazingly helpful posters and many a member has received some much needed help and support here.

Maybe it's just a case of NM being more your "cup of tea". You can have a swish ticker there too grin.

Feel abused to be honest. Because some people disagreed with you online? Really? You don't have a thick enough skin for pretty much the whole internet MN.

It's OK, you can choose to just stay at NM and get hunning. That's fine. What's not fine is coming here and telling us we should change this place into that place.

MrsDeVere Fri 11-Oct-13 22:33:22

NM is not friendly and helpful.
It is a simmering mass of passive aggressive bile.

You try stepping out of line on NM and see just how friendly it really is.

Don't be gay, don't be on benefits, don't live in council flat, don't have left wing ideals, don't despise racism, don't object to the words P***, Re****, or M**g or Sp**.
Don't object to 12 year old girls being blamed for being gang raped, don't say you think pole dancing is not empowering or indeed good exercise for a nine year old...

Just don't do anything that doesn't involve agreeing with everyone and saying awwww huni a lot.

Other than that, you are spot on, NM really is friendly and helpful.

HavantGuard Fri 11-Oct-13 22:33:25

That her daughter was feeling pressure since she was predicted 13 As and a B for her GCSEs at her super special school that lets her take Latin, Greek and classics but doesn't suggest a modern language.

VerySmallSqueak Fri 11-Oct-13 22:33:45

I wouldn't be as rude as you have been hellogals.

Most of us haven't got the faintest clue what you are talking about.

CakeBotherer Fri 11-Oct-13 22:33:54


RevelsRoulette Fri 11-Oct-13 22:33:58


Everyone on the entire site is unfriendly? Every single member of this huge site?

I think that is unfair. Yes, you're pissed off, but please don't say everyone is this that or the other when that is clearly untrue.

hellogals Fri 11-Oct-13 22:34:27

Excuse me english teachers. Ill spell how i bloody want. Y do u need to pick pick pick earth. Has everyone got to write like u???

puds11isNAUGHTYnotNAICE Fri 11-Oct-13 22:35:14

It's just how words are written confused

lessonsintightropes Fri 11-Oct-13 22:35:36

I think your posts and last comment probably (and I might well be being a little mean here) demonstrate why you've been "picked on" here.

1. People generally use standard English here without reverting to text speak. Personally, I find it irritating that someone asking for advice can't be bothered to type properly.

2. The aggressive-aggressive (rather than passive-aggressive) approach: why ask a group of people why they are being so unpleasant? Either withdraw, lick wounds and walk away, or tackle specific individuals rather than spamming an entire forum with an opinion that we are all unpleasant.

It is, as others have said, horses for courses here, and it does seem you'd be a lot happier over at the other website. Personally I like the robust and humorous nature of debate here and will take the occasional, probably deserved, flaming. If you don't like the heat...

Fakebook Fri 11-Oct-13 22:35:51

I think your nickname doesn't suit your tone tbh. Lighten up.

Stravy Fri 11-Oct-13 22:35:51

NM is a bit shit if you're dyslexic. Just sayin'

(or at least it is for me, I shouldn't really speak for us as a group)

Ha ha ha.

Spelling is spelling. You don't get to choose it.

friday16 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:36:23

Havant, that was my hypothesis. But she claims not, and as this thread has progressed the styles have rather diverged.

Or, perhaps, hv rthr gone diffnt, hun.

RandallPinkFloyd Fri 11-Oct-13 22:36:46

So which one is your thread then OP?

Genuine question, because if you have been given an undeserved flaming then it's not what MN is about.

On the other hand, if the advice you were given is not what you wanted/expected or if you pissed people off by being needlessly confrontational then there's no harm in being told the truth.

Without being able to see the actual thread there's no way to know.

hellogals Fri 11-Oct-13 22:36:54

That was not my post. Actually my daughter was being bullied.

Why call them nethuns??
They dont speak bad of mumsnet

EarthMither Fri 11-Oct-13 22:37:01

Bear with me while I find a 13 year old to translate your last post into English for me

<sits picking earth>

ClaraOswald Fri 11-Oct-13 22:37:24

It helps others to understand what you are trying to convey if you use standard English. Makes it easier for people who may have dyslexia if they can actually guess what the hell you want to say.

Fuck it, Shakespeare spelled how he wanted, you go for it. It is not the done thing here. Do you understand that different sites are different? We have different rules and styles and attitudes. Among sites and among posters.

Badvoc Fri 11-Oct-13 22:37:36

Bye then.

ilovesooty Fri 11-Oct-13 22:37:40

Text speak simply doesn't give your opinions any credibility.
And you really are rude.

Tiredmumno1 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:37:49

Ahhh so it's a Fred about a Fred, just with a name change.

Good Luck then with that OP, if you start a goady thread like this, then surely you will know the response you are going to get.

Especially as you have just basically slagged every single member off in one hit.

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Fri 11-Oct-13 22:38:56

Because it is a representation of real life. If you have those experiences IRL then you are likely to have them on here, for various reasons.

Have some cake hun.

Come. Get it off your chest.

ClaraOswald Fri 11-Oct-13 22:39:24

Nethuns is a pun. You do understand what one of those is?

sonlypuppyfat Fri 11-Oct-13 22:39:39

Sometimes you get a right bunch, you only have one that doesn't properly read what you have written then they all follow suit

Trills Fri 11-Oct-13 22:40:01

When writing, always consider your audience.

You wouldn't expect to get a positive answer if you went onto a Liverpool football club forum saying "Why are Liverpool shit?"

I'm sure that if you go on NetMums and ask "why is mumsnet so unfriendly and s* compared to netmums?" you'll get a much more positive reception smile

(remember that you can't swear there though)

Rufus44 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:40:49

midwifeandmum Fri 11-Oct-13 22:42:32

Omg grow a set of balls and get on with it. I have had a few slanging matches on here, get over it. Its not airy fairy here.
Get over it Hello or piss off back to nm.
I had to admit i was wrong a few times and shook hands and get on with it, you should do the damn same.

Tiredmumno1 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:42:36

grin Maryz

Honestly, not everyone is unfriendly on here, hellogals. There's 2million registered users, and I know for usre there's 3 lovely people on here.

Including me.


we aren't all mean. I am lovely.

but you're right the rest of them are utter bitches.


MoominsYonisAreScary Fri 11-Oct-13 22:43:39

You dont have to post here if you dont like it, why did you though if netmums is so great? Surely you could have just posted there

Tiredmumno1 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:44:13

Chaos I swear I better be in that list grin

jollydiane Fri 11-Oct-13 22:45:19

I think it can be daunting especially if you are new, however I've found MN has helped me genuinely see other people's point of view and even changed the way I think about a particular issue. It's good to debate and argue and along the way have tears of laughter running down your cheeks.

CakeBotherer Fri 11-Oct-13 22:45:26

No to the cake then? Ah'ck well, more for everyone else then (it's a very good carrot cake btw)

Where you here when people gave up their time to go and help someone struggling to cope when their dp died at their house organising lifts or trains for others to help?
When people made blankets for families who had lost a loved one?
when someone stepped in to be a witness at someones wedding they did not know?
When people walked Miles for Maude?
When people have offered to pick victims of domestic violence up in their cars or paid for hotels to help them get out?
My child's godparent is a mumsnetter because I had no one
The countless times people have sent food, clothes, shoes and whatever they can when someone is really stuck.
The Christmas appeal when people nominate people they dont know who need a hand.

Thats why I love Mumsnet.

<resorts to yelling, hopefully>

DaffodilsandSnow Fri 11-Oct-13 22:51:02

I do have some sympathy with you and I don't necessarily agree that people are generally "one or the other" sites. Reading some threads on here some people do come across as living in a little stuck up bubble an example is the much quoted "fuck the fuck off" this really makes me cringe in much the same way (although for different reasons) as the tickers etc on the other site.

There does seem to be more people on this site who are very sure of themselves and of their opinions, and perhaps lacking in warmth on some of the more general threads.

However I do like the way that people seem perhaps a little more articulate on this site.

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:51:02

AthelstaneTheUnready Fri 11-Oct-13 22:52:00

Cross-posted with you - if you'd said 'my daughter's being bullied' you wouldn't have got abuse. So what did you say? <genuinely intrigued now>

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:52:09

Really, usual?

Mazza and Pazza?

Aren't they a little like Macca and Gazza?

AllThatGlistens Fri 11-Oct-13 22:52:12

Outraged from what I can decipher text speak from a NMer, this has been an 'enlightening' read.

Perhaps if you find the banter a little too harsh here you'd be best suited back over there?

People here are honest, often brutally so. If that upsets you I'd consider why you're bothering to rant at posters? After all, would you not consider that a very Mumsnetty thing to be doing? grin

PedlarsSpanner Fri 11-Oct-13 22:53:12

tut tut Mary, shouting at pore OP, her nerves are in tatters, TATTERS I tell ye

<open OFRS, dusts orf megaphone, hands to Mary>

Hellogals - might I suggest that you spend a bit more time here before rushing to judgement. Maybe go and look at the Bereavement boards or the Special Needs boards, or the Mental Health boards, and see some of the amazing support and help that is given on a daily basis on those boards.

I could tell you stories of the support that I myself have had, to help me in my fight with depression - a fight that has brought me close to suicide on many occasions - and in which I have been hugely helped by the friends I have made here, and the support I have had/

Or you could go and look at the mumsnet Woolly Hugs project - which started as a way to give comfort to a Mumsnetter and her family whose little boy died of a brain tumour - we all knitted squares which were made into a blanket to send them, as a physical symbol of the comfort we couldn't be there in person to offer. This grew and grew, and to date, some 15 blankets have been knitted for bereaved mumsnetters and/or their families. We also knit or crochet wee comfort blankets that are given to sick children in Yorkhill Childrens Hospital. And little white blankets used to wrap babies who are stillborn (so the hospital has something better than a towel to use). And blankets that are sent out to Africa, for sick children there.

Or look at how mumsnetters sat up all night praying/lighting candles/thinking positive thoughts for a desperately ill child - and then how some of them travelled the length of the country to attend her funeral.

Then come back and tell me how terrible and unfriendly we all are.

Rufus44 Fri 11-Oct-13 22:53:32

scaevola Fri 11-Oct-13 22:55:57

If posts contained abuse, then they should be reported because personal attacks will be deleted.

If it was a case of posters simply not agreeing with you, that's not necessarily abuse, not necessarily unhelpful.

But it should be dealt with on the thread. The shibboleth against TAAT exists for a reason. Especially when the thread in question isn't specified.

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 22:56:19

Actually, what is really shit, really shit I tell you, and lacking in respect and dignity, is this thread.

I mean, poor Olivia. There she is with her stomach the size of a small elephant nicely rounded, putting her feet up for one of her final evenings chatting with us lot, and suddenly she has to deal with this.

I have seen perfectly reasonable OP's ripped to shreads like a pack of dogs for nothing. there are alot of people in life who have nothing better to do than be vile to others which is easier when you are sitting on the other side of a screen with no regard for the feelings of the person reading those messages. Conversely, I have been enlightened, educated and advised well here.

LegoCaltrops Fri 11-Oct-13 23:22:28

Are you putting the user name in correctly?

I would also say that MN isn't going to suit everyone. For those it does suit, it is great, and luckily, for those it doesn't suit, there are plenty of other sites with different (not better or worse) ethos's (ethoses??).

In my opinion, websites are like restaurants - you and I might like different restaurants - you look at the menus and decide which one you like. And if I choose a different one, it isn't because it is better than the one you chose - just that it better suits me and my needs at that point in time.

This is why I find it so hard to understand why someone would spend ages telling any website's members why their site is so crap (especially when compared to another site). If I don't like a restaurant - I just don't go back there - simple. It would be madness for me to go back there, and sit at my table complaining about everything, and telling the staff and the other diners how dreadful the place is, and how much better Luigi's down the road is. I'd just go to Luigi's and enjoy my pizza!

gordyslovesheep Fri 11-Oct-13 23:28:44

I am almost too drunk for this shizzle ...almost <fetches the rum>

Because we are all different and if we all got along it'd be boring. What I don't understand is why you want to keep coming onto a site you dislike confused I don't go on netmums going "argh, you lot are so Hun-like and annoying, god you drive me insane with your bl00dy tickers and pink-ness!" because I realise that I can MN instead there are better things to do with my time and places I'd rather be!

simpson Fri 11-Oct-13 23:29:20

If everyone got on all the time, it would be no fun!

Much more interesting when we are deleted disagreeing with each other.

DearPrudence Fri 11-Oct-13 23:29:36

If your child has been bullied and you're having a hard time, I'm really sorry for you. That must be horrible. Directing your anger at an entire bunch of MNers isn't going to help though, is it?

No-one can comment on whether you were unfairly treated in your last thread, because you won't tell us where it is.

moldingsunbeams Fri 11-Oct-13 23:29:47

l cant even think of a thread it might be and I have been on here way too long today.

RandallPinkFloyd Fri 11-Oct-13 23:30:17

Erm, which thread are you talking about OP?

Seriously hellogalss - why do you want to stay here? What do you think this thread is going to achieve?

If you think you were badly treated on another thread, report the posts that you think were abusive - MNHQ are very good at dealing with such things.

But if what happened was you got robust views that differed from what you wanted to hear - well, I am afraid that is life - on MN, at least. You are going to get honest opinions from people - we say what we think, not what we think the OP wants to hear.

simpson Fri 11-Oct-13 23:30:52

MoominsYonisAreScary Fri 11-Oct-13 23:33:29

Sometimes people are mean, I think its unusual for everyone to be mean on a thread about a child being bullied though

Well, you have been unreasonable because you're tarring thousands of people with the same brush. You never answered my question though, What I don't understand is why you want to keep coming onto a site you dislike

HardFacedCareeristBitchNigel Fri 11-Oct-13 23:33:42

Not sure that you could really describe being banned as "pretty sick"

Child abuse is pretty sick, or is cutting someone and tipping bleach over the cuts or forcing them to eat cat food off thr floor. Being banned from a forum you apparently dont like ?

LegoCaltrops Fri 11-Oct-13 23:36:04

What do actually want from this thread?

Is it just a rant?
Do you want a (another) response to your previous question about your DD? If you feel that you got unfairly flamed, fine - do sometimes about it rather than complaining anonymously - how do you expect anyone to respond properly if we've not got a clue what the original problem was?
Something else?

No, not toying. I type slowly. grin

Sorry blush grin

hellogalss - did you use a different nickname for the other thread (about your dd) - because I have had done a search using hellogals and found only this thread, no other threads.

If you tell me the nickname you used, I will search for the thread and link it to this one for you, so people can see what you are talking about.

ilovesooty and breatheslowly - thank you - I have learned something today!

Tiredmumno1 Fri 11-Oct-13 23:39:47

Well actually you have been unreasonable!

By ignoring requests to see what it is that you are actually bloody talking about.

I conclude that you are not the OP, but another MNetter who is now too ashamed to admit it grin

Or it's all just made up goady bullshit.

Or you have decided not to act so mature now by not bloody linking the thread.

Or you actually flounced halfway through, until said MNetter above took over for you.

Phew did that cover all options?

Coffeeinbed - the OP namechanged because she couldn't log back in under her original nickname - we don't know if she was banned or if she is having log-in problems - so she created the new name.

reelingintheyears Fri 11-Oct-13 23:40:03

You might be having an elephant. I was expecting a baby and gave birth to a teeny tiny banshee instead.

Maybe Olivia will have two teeny tiny banshees. That sounds so cute, as a bystander.

OLIVIA have you got your names sorted yet?

I need to know so I can direct DiL in the right way.

Stravy Fri 11-Oct-13 23:42:23

You don't use text speak because you are dyslexic, you use text speak because you are too shit and unfriendly to give a fuck about people with dyslexia or impaired vision who are trying to read your shit. You can't just be lazy and call dyslexia. It's not a get out of jail free card and it's fucking RUDE to pretend it is.

I'm sure the thread has moved on, but I took my time to type.

It's just all a bit much when everyone is p*****g rainbows and s*****g glitter.

I like sparkly things too, ilovesooty - maybe we need our own sparkly clique quiche?

PinocchiosLeftNostril Fri 11-Oct-13 23:47:34

Some parents just want hugz and 'it's kool babes, it'll get better' when they need advice regarding their child being bullied.

Other parents actually want constructive advice and couldn't care less if it was sugar coated or not.

Therein lies the main difference between both sites.

On the rare occasions there used to be threads about things other than benefits or breastfeeding on Netmums, I used to post lengthy replies to the quieter ones needing serious advice. And without blowing my own horn (trumpet?), my advice was pretty good.

But most of it was deleted because i'd perhaps used the work 'dick' to describe an abusive partner, or my posts were completely ignored whereas the 'have some hugz chick' ones were met with tonnes of thankz.

Also, i was told by one lovely NM I should have stayed with an abusive partner rather than inflict 'single parentdom' onto my daughter.

And i was told - by the mods - that another member's post couldn't be deleted for calling my autistic daughter a R***rd because it wasn't being used offensively...

So... I'm really struggling to see why you think that heap of pink sickly gibberish is even remotely on par with this site.

Maryz Fri 11-Oct-13 23:48:13

It's Olivia. She's too big tired to chase us all over the site. So she started this so she could gather us all in one place. She is sitting, tea on bump, chocolate at hand, sniggering at us all.

I haven't read the whole thread but I do agree with the OP, particularly in recent years. Sometimes people will just be nasty on a thread where you're asking for advice for no reason at all and I've been on the receiving end of that so sympathise. But the nasty people are not everyone, the site is just bigger than it used to be with more trolls perhaps

OTOH mumsnet is much more cerebral than netmums, and that is why I've stuck with it for 10 years even though netmums is friendlier and I do post there too sometimes.

Maryz Sat 12-Oct-13 00:01:20

gordy, dd has a job starting at 8 am tomorrow.

Guess who has to drive her there? Fecking teenagers.

MrsDeVere was banned from Netmums, despite her wise and wonderful posting, because she had a row with someone about the use of the word "retard".

Acksherly I think she may have been banned more than once

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:01:38

Maybe Olivia was trying to get rid of all the newcomers, after the penis beaker saga. So they could save the servers grin

I am kidding btw, before I get banned too wink

Oink glitter, Superman? grin

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:08


Aw well Perception, I've only been here 2/3 years but I don't see that much bullying really... just honesty.

I tried Netmums and couldn't focus after 5 minutes. Dreadful place.

I tried Bounty and it was just utterly shit tbh and full of people worrying about their 4 year old struggling with War and Peace. hmm

I am a member of another, much smaller and more intimate parenting forum and have been there for 9 years or something daft like that.

But I do like it here.

Bettercallsaul1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:11

Sincere thanks for brightening up my night, OP - feel free to come and spread a little stardust at MN any time you like!

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:18

By bigging up NM, and sending everyone that way that is.

Maryz Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:24

You know Honey, you really will have to do something about Hully. All this royalty shit has gone to her head shock

Oooo, I want your puppy! Looks snuggly! going to bed now, honest

OinkGlitter Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:33

<shows off new name>
Yes, I know. I'll never win Halloween competitions like this.

reelingintheyears Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:39

Are we acksherly allowed to be on there and here?


HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:46

You been feeding them decomposed seal again SDTG?

IamtheZombie Sat 12-Oct-13 00:02:56

YouTheCat, where did you get the impression that Zombie was veggie? She's partial to broccoli, mind, but only alongside a nice juicy bit of meat. grin

gordyslovesheep Sat 12-Oct-13 00:03:16

kidz iz vile -fact

right I am rummy and off to bed - but OP ask your self this night xxx

50shadesofknackered Sat 12-Oct-13 00:03:16

Oink glitter, mmmm

gordyslovesheep Sat 12-Oct-13 00:03:58

Oh I seriously have the love for youthecat and now I must sleep x

SupermansBigRedBottleOfSpirits Sat 12-Oct-13 00:04:50

Heheh yup oink glitter grin I imagine piggy shapes all sparkled and pirty blush

50shadesofknackered Sat 12-Oct-13 00:05:16

Now the op's ducked off and I'm none the wiser confused bugger, I've gotta go to bed

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:05:16

I don't know, Zombie. I'm on my third glass of wine

I probably think that Miley Cyrus is good or something, by this time of night. grin

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:05:32

Zombie shock I think that smoke has gone to your head grin

50shadesofknackered Sat 12-Oct-13 00:06:06

Oh dear, has she ducked off? Maybe she's fucked off too now who can't spell

There's been a bit of stress chez EvilWolef tonight, HoneyBooBooDragon, and it seems to have upset NeuroticHound's digestion. Massively. Everywhere.

She is NOT coming upstairs for a cuddle on our bed.

Dh is saying it is time to go to bed, but I am having fun here - OliviaMN - you are a wonderful, wonderful, twin-gestating human being, so please, please, please don't delete this thread before tomorrow? I will send you biscuits and hugzz and stuff!

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:06:11

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:06:26

Night, Gordy grin

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:07:46

Oh dear. I prescribe regular sips of gin for you and dh to stay mellow tomorrow. Purely for the dogs sake.

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 12-Oct-13 00:07:49

Is this a stealth thread about MN royalty and bullying? Joy. hmm

perceptionreality Sat 12-Oct-13 00:07:59

The nastiness is certainly mostly in the minority I think, even now that the site is so much bigger. There are some very intelligent and educated people here and I think the thing to do is avoid AIBU unless you're happy to get 'robust' replies.

IamtheZombie Sat 12-Oct-13 00:11:24

It isn't that sort of smoke, Tiredmum. Sadly...

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:11:43

I like the 'robustness' of AIBU.

I think it's a while since I started a thread anywhere though.

TheInquisitor Sat 12-Oct-13 00:11:55

Sorry, not read all the thread. I'm a regular user of both Mumsnet AND Netmums and have been for a few years now.
Yes, Netmums is more about the support, and a lot more fluffier in general, but that's not to say that Mumsnet isn't.
With Mumsnet, it's more blunt and straight forward. If you're talking shite, then you're more likely to be told that you are in a to the point way.
Netmums are more likely to sugar coat it.
Both sites are great, although you do need a lot thicker skin to post on here. Shrug it off and give back just as much as you get. grin

TheOnlyOliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 12-Oct-13 00:12:16


Prune yoghurt?

Oh good grief.


Double babies = double potential for piles innit


Uh oh Olivia did the hmm face.

I think that's our cue to get our arses to bed grin

You might think that I couldn't possibly comment.

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:12:25

Haha it could be a mixture zombie wink

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:13:21

Oh crap just ignore me zombie, I thought you said something else there.

Note to self - don't read so quick grin

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:13:53

It could be princessflirtyPants (I have only JUST got your name btw despite seeing it loads and now feel thick), I don't anyone has a bloody clue what it's about tbh though.

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:14:49

Also I can't help you out with any other smoke.

I can offer you a bottle of beer, their not really mine but hey ho.

CuttedUpPear Sat 12-Oct-13 00:15:13

Hello! Have I stumbled onto the Drunk Thread?

TheInquisitor Sat 12-Oct-13 00:15:56

talk about spelling and text speak,

Now this I actually love about Mumsnet. I tend to spend more time over here nowadays and whenever I venture back over to Netmums, I find the appalling lack of spelling and grammar completely off putting. It's all full of text speak! Drives me mad.
At least over here I'm around like minded spelling and grammar Police. grin

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:16:04

I'm sober, if that helps?

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:16:44

Olivia you haven't gotta worry about me as I am orf to bed, can you all hold off on the cheering until I am actually out the door. Thank you grin

Goodnight all smile

Boosterseattheballcleaner Sat 12-Oct-13 00:16:44

I hope others are pissed here, to be quite honest I'm on my way to being shit faced DS at sleepover so no early wake up

IamtheZombie Sat 12-Oct-13 00:17:08

By this time of night aren't all threads Drunk Threads, CuttedUpPear?

OinkGlitter Sat 12-Oct-13 00:17:28

Nethuns get tipsy. Or sloshed. Or sozzled. Not drunk. Fact.

(I imagine, never been...)

LegoCaltrops Sat 12-Oct-13 00:17:53

As am I. Sadly.

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 12-Oct-13 00:17:59

I was annoyed I missed the last one, I read the whole thing when it had reached 1008 posts and then couldn't post to clear up an accusation that I knew was untrue! Grr!!

No one has a clue about my name or this thread?

PrincessFlirtyPants Sat 12-Oct-13 00:18:43

Oops, sorry that was to HoneyBooBoo

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:18:54

Oh bloody hell! Is Olivia having twins?

Best of luck! grin

SupermansBigRedBottleOfSpirits Sat 12-Oct-13 00:18:56

I'm making my way to pissed in a rather fast manner grin I've feck all on tomorrow and dp will see to the 2 under 2s haha [grin

LegoCaltrops Sat 12-Oct-13 00:19:04

Sober, that is. And sleepy.

reelingintheyears Sat 12-Oct-13 00:20:09



Hellogals or OP or whatever it is you are now on here as...


I am, quite genuinely, trying to help you here OP - that is what will now be called 'PLAN A' and will come first and it does pre-suppose you are actually genuine (which I am, as that is my nature, assuming you actually ARE & until proven otherwise - OLIVIA, PREGGERS OR OTHERWISE, CAN YOU AT LEAST ENLIGHTEN US IF OP IS GENUINE IN REFERRING TO A THREAD OF HERS VIS HER DD BEING BULLIED??? ) - and if I am wrong, then please avoid 'go' and go directly to jail 'PLAN B' further below.

So here is PLAN A in all it's MN glory for you - If you genuinely felt you were abused on here vis a subject as important/delicate as your DD being bullied, then I can only apologise for that (on account of being one of the 2-3million users here and, de facto, ALSO one of the ones you have slated collectively - albeit WHOLLY mistakenly since clearly it was NOT all of us... not least as we still don't know what thread you're referring to?).

STDG has it right, and I have both the battle scars of being dumb enough to post on AIBU to prove it; but also the TOTAL privilege of having been able to help a few people I could see were in genuine need - and then the even BIGGER 'gift' that some of the 'collective' (I.E. some of the group that is 'ALL' MN'ers) of the folks have given me. THAT help being AFTER I may have helped others, and also - very literally - being life-saving.

So, if you've had a rough ride; I'm sorry and would genuinely urge you to post again so that we - WE - CAN help.


*AND....here is PLAN B for IF the above does NOT apply.

If you are on a piss take, then please take the bus with destination 'F*ck You' on the front of it RIGHT back to any other site you wish to visit. Ditto, do NOT have the audacity to clump us all together (we are nearly 3 million people FFS???) in the way your OP did.

Please KNOW - to your very core - that I may well be dead right now and my DC without a Mother were it NOT for the precious people here who came to my aid and just as I did in turn prior to that with other people in need (although I DON'T think I saved anyone else's life as MY MN posse have pretty much saved mine

Lastly (IF Plan B applies) - it is not 'click/s' but 'cliques' to which I THINK you were referring. In Plan A - I would be doing ALL I could to (genuinely and with good intent) help you towards a literacy class. But if it IS Plan B - then please know that as well as being deeply offensive to ALL of us, you are as thick as shit.

Kindest regards,

reelingintheyears Sat 12-Oct-13 00:21:35

Meh, you get piles anyway Olivia.

Fact of life. angry

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:24:13

Oi oi, what's going on here, then? Have you narsty meanies been bjullying again? hmm

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:24:54

Stratters it's all Olivia's fault, honest.

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:25:07

My twins gave me the most horrific piles. It was a baptism of fire into parenthood, I can tell you.

Auto-rocking chair/thing is your friend - appease one twin while you deal with the other one.

Tiredmumno1 Sat 12-Oct-13 00:25:32

Crap I really am off now.

Really is there such a vile thing as prune yogurt?.


ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:31:57

Activia, actually it's rather nice blush

YouTheCat Sat 12-Oct-13 00:32:18

Rhubarb is nicer.

Night chaps. grin

YoureBeingADick Sat 12-Oct-13 00:34:12

funny how OP picked a Friday night to post this. almost as if she intended it to gain as much publicity as possible before the red button came back to work on Monday morning. hmmm.

CeliaLytton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:34:20

Someone say something disparaging about Olivia and get it deleted so I can go to bed

<coward emoticon>

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:34:38

I reckon everyone else here was clever enough to get your name first go. It's only me that's dim.

CatAmongThePigeons Sat 12-Oct-13 00:35:46

Prune yogurt?! Bleh, sounds horrid!

not place marking for deletion message as DS2 will not sleep

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:37:28

I think Awesometree's post has properly fucked over my brain.

You mustn't speak ill of the upduffed, Celia.


OinkGlitter Sat 12-Oct-13 00:40:04

Awesometree's post needs a flow chart.

I need more wine.

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:40:23


Did anyone ever work out which thread this babble is about?

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:41:26


Don't do that

I think someone did about 55 posts in.

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:41:44

Am got it wrong though.

It's not clicks.

It's not cliques.

It's quiches.

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:42:22

Weird. Reading 'yawn' actually makes you yawn.

Have you ever tried yawning at a dog?

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:45:01

Stop bloody writing it!!

My heads about to flip off if my mouth goes any wider.

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 00:45:29

No. But now I want to.

OinkGlitter Sat 12-Oct-13 00:45:55

what happens?

(so, no...)

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:47:22

They yawn back. It's pretty funny. LittleDog and I have yawning competitions, see who cracks first.

OinkGlitter Sat 12-Oct-13 00:50:12

This is why I need to upgrade the guinea pigs.

<checks furtively over shoulder for super furry animal people>

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Oct-13 00:51:06

I read the word yawn and immediately did so, what's that about?!

Alisvolatpropiis Sat 12-Oct-13 00:51:57

TinyDog doesn't yawn back. Is she broken?

ScarerStratton Sat 12-Oct-13 00:52:04

Right, well if OP isn't going to spill the beans, and Olivia's snoring over her empty yoghurt pot, I'm going to bed.

Night you damnable vipers

Sparklyboots Sat 12-Oct-13 00:54:31

Oh, ffs, just rtft just to say, it's CLIQUES and CLIQUEY but another one of the vipers got in there before me but not til page effing 20. I think quiches (and eggy) are also acceptable. <helpful>

AmandaHoldenmigroin Sat 12-Oct-13 01:07:20

Yes, mumsnet can be negative and the can be a lot of negative comments. But there are nice people too who don't bitch at people and genuinely want to help. Perhaps you should give some feedback to Hq as to why you are leaving.

supermidwifeandmammy Sat 12-Oct-13 01:10:38

Where has everybody went??? Im just in from work and wanted some banter with the OP x

Will gladly provide flowchartgrin Would also happily provide details of thread but that's be tricky as have lost the fucking plot of thread totally (sorry OP, I meant 'totes' - obvs;))

Valpolicella grin

ZingDollyChops Sat 12-Oct-13 01:39:45

late to the party so only read OP, but I don't think it's clicky here.

I don't think its cliquey either.

I think OP you need to think about the Monty Hall problem before she can decide if she is happy with a goat or not.

and also best if you a Hamwidge

ZingDollyChops Sat 12-Oct-13 01:42:07

that is a beautiful sentiment.

This thread had to be a wind up. Started off with "the sites crap we're all bitches to, well its not that bad"
Dont post on public forums if you cant handle people disagreeing with you. Iv been ripped to shreds before but i didnt cry about it. Thats whT happens when you post on the internet, not everyone is going to agree with you.

Would like to know if op was banned though.
Mind you olivia did tell her to check her emails so maybe she did just lock herself out

Zing I raise you

My real life cunt bunting

You would think I would be used to CreepyAsFuckDog, but no.

He terrifies me more with his every appearance.

MNHQ should employ him.

crimsonwitch Sat 12-Oct-13 02:15:01

I've not been posting here very long, but just yesterday I got some frank advice in response to my poste. It was very much "wake up and smell the coffee crimson!" which was exactly what I needed. I just think MNers call it like they see it. Also as for the dyslexia, I have dyslexia but can still type mostly coherently by using spellchecker, a genius invention. Or I cud jst do it da lzy way n speek lyk dis.

Arf @ cunt bunting grin so easily amused during twat o'clock feeds wink

MyBaby1day Sat 12-Oct-13 06:45:01

YADNBU, I have posted a few times and found the same!!!. Couldn't agree more!.

Thumbwitch Sat 12-Oct-13 07:02:09

Pinocchio - that is really awful behaviour you were on the receiving end of. Far more genuine grounds for complaint than the OP of this thread, I'd say. shock

Stay here, we're far more useful.

OP, really, no one has a clue why people like you bother posting these threads - wind up or what, it makes no odds - you won't change the style of MN. Too many of us like it. If you don't, then don't stay. And if you do stay, for the love of GOD learn to write properly instead of like some half-educated teen.

Although I'm intrigued by your use of "sick" in your post about being "banned" - surely that makes it a good thing in your txtspk world? Or are you not "dahn wiv da kidz" in any other way than using their illiterate form of language?

Doingakatereddy Sat 12-Oct-13 07:02:34

vapollicella and zingdollychops - amazing work!

In response to OP's post, I adore mumsnet - it assures me that when I became a mum I wasn't expected to become a pleasant, fluffy, 'Hun' overnight & could get on been the abrasive, on occasion bitchy woman I had always been

pippitysqueakity Sat 12-Oct-13 07:25:03

MyBaby ?

Howsuper Sat 12-Oct-13 07:53:03

Mumsnet is the most intelligent, funny, thought-provoking, sometimes outrageous, supportive, news-making, liberal site on t'interweb by far (I'm an ancient Mumsnetter with a new nickname btw) - and I LOVES IT.

See - this is why I didn't want to go to bed last night - I knew I was going to miss more good stuff - real cuntbunting, CreepyAsFeckDog, and AmGrowingAnAwesomeTree's awesome post. I think I have a little bit of a crush on AmGrowing, after that!!

<<flutters eyelashes>>

Scarer - I did a search using the OP's first nickname on this thread, but this thread is the only one that comes up - but that isn't surprising as she said in the OP she had namechanged for this thread. So I offered to do the search for her, if she gave me her other nickname, and link it to this thread - to save her the trouble - but she didn't respond.

She's also mentioned getting a pasting on another thread, a couple of years ago (thus proving she has been here for years) but hasn't told us that nickname or linked to that thread either.

I am up way earlier than I wanted to be, because ddog2 is still poorly. She has been a tiny bit sick in the night, but has utterly refused her breakfast (and she is half labrador - so to me that says that the labrador half, at least, is pretty ill), and has been out in the garden but hasn't done her business - so we are going to ring the vet as soon as they open, and take her over. Am a bit worried, tbh.

gordyslovesheep Sat 12-Oct-13 08:21:11

my head hurts x

GuybrushThreepwoodMP Sat 12-Oct-13 08:21:39

It's hard being the only sane person in a works of lunatics isn't it?
Or maybe you only like to be told what you want to hear.
YABU to start this thread rather than just leaving and popping off to Netmums for a cuddle though.
And YABU to write in text speak constantly. It really takes away credibility from what you write and make you seem like an aggressive inarticulate fool.

everlong Sat 12-Oct-13 08:22:50

WHY would you stay on a forum that you thought was unfriendly and shit?


I don't agree with you at all btw.

But I do suggest you stay over on NM and close your account here.

Theodorakiss Sat 12-Oct-13 08:30:27

Both are useful in themselves, MN definitely has the edge. Although this thread has become a bit arselicky which is unusual.

You want unfriendly? Go to the DFF (defensive formula feeders) pages on that shitty alpha thing. I read a blog on there saying that a woman who had undergone a bilateral mastectomy shouldn't have had a child as she wasn't able to feed it in the "only non poisonous" way possible. I hate them.

Formula feeding is poisonous, according to them, is it, Theodora? Blimey - I must tell all three of my dses to drop dead on the spot. I can only assume that it is a miracle they have survived this long. I wonder what explains their academic achievements, though......?

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sat 12-Oct-13 08:47:13

A non eating Labrador is definitely worth the vets. If you can get in, most pet shops sell good pro biotics that help inflamed poorly tummies and bum tube bits.

AuntieStella Sat 12-Oct-13 08:50:27

There's also a poster (possibly more than one, but I 'see' one as the style is so similar) who starts an AIBU, gets disagreed with (robustly, but not abusively), then a TAAT complaining about how nasty we are.

This is very like that, but with unspecified earlier thread.
