I wouldn't expect many to recognise me but I just thought I'd say cheerio.

MN is not the place for me anymore.

Recent events have left me completely disillusioned and I just don't have the confidence to post anymore.

I didn't even make it a year! Shame that.

Wishing everyone all the best.

Bye.

I think that when someone posts in flouncers corner that is exactly what they are hoping you will do. Along with lots of posts begging them not to go.

If I left every time I got disillusioned or someone had a go at me I'd never be on here! If Mumsnet is not for you then it's not for you.

I hear Netmums is looking for new members...

aww velvet no!, don't go! I like to see you on a thread!

You've pissed yourself Hully? Again?
You really need to control your bladder woman.

I don't know this poster and I know she'll hate me for not being sympathetic as no doubt she's lurking and reading all these posts, but flouncing really is pants. It's just embarrassing when you come back and say "oh all right then, I'll stay!" The only real way to flounce is to de-register quietly. Then leave it 6 months and re-register under your old name with a number at the end because you can't have the original name. grin

She's a Good Egg, Rhubs.

Go and sort yer ducks out or summat.

GypsyMoth Wed 05-Oct-11 11:07:48

Has anyone found the thread that upset/disillusioned velvet?

Fo0ffyShmooffer Wed 05-Oct-11 11:08:07

Shame to see you go Velvet. Hope you change your mind anyway.

There's a few MNers I would willingly provide bus fare for if only they'd go but you definitely aren't one of them grin

MardyBra Wed 05-Oct-11 11:11:08

You could always come back under a name change and PM all the nice people on this thread with the details (no need to bother with Rhubarbo grin ).

Thingumy Wed 05-Oct-11 11:12:10

I'm sure VS has already namechanged people.

Drama over.

MardyBra Wed 05-Oct-11 11:15:10

Do you know something I don't thingumy?

GypsyMoth Wed 05-Oct-11 11:23:52

Who was velvet before?
And who is she now?

TheRhubarb Wed 05-Oct-11 11:27:08

Nah, I'm a nasty piece of work alright grin

I should hide flouncers corner, it gets on my tits.

rubyrubyruby Wed 05-Oct-11 11:29:47

<<looks around>>

Has she gone?

........ shame.

rubyrubyruby Wed 05-Oct-11 11:31:37

How about 'VelvetSn*0*w? for the comeback?

DreamsOfSteam Wed 05-Oct-11 11:41:04

I think it looks more like VelvetNoShow im afraid sad

JodieHarsh Wed 05-Oct-11 11:46:01

Gosh, what a shame sad

The worst thing is when someone does a really sweet dignified flounce, thus proving they are exactly the sort of person who should be on MN...

Pinot Wed 05-Oct-11 11:46:49

Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! Why?? Velvet don't go - you're one of my faves!

Pinot Wed 05-Oct-11 11:49:32

I'm going to message her on facebook. Then I can cyber-kick the cunts that have upset her.

I have only just discovered 'flouncers corner'. Why is there one? confused

TobyLeWolef Wed 05-Oct-11 11:52:45

sad I am sad about this. I never post in Flouncers' Corner, but this time I have been forced to. Forced, I say!

Pinot Wed 05-Oct-11 11:57:29

Ohhhhhhhhhh sad She's gawn off facebook too.

Who was it? Who upset her? <glares> Don't make me Advanced Search, I hate it.

LadyBeagleEyes Wed 05-Oct-11 11:58:34

Hi Velvet.
Just repeating what everyone is saying, you're one of the better posters.
I hope you change your mind.
What thread upset you?

crazynanna Wed 05-Oct-11 12:01:13

I don't know you ,Velvet,but from the sounds of it,you seem like a valued member (and I love your name)
Plus,if Pinot says you're alright,then you must be! wink
<removes tongue from Pinot's arse> grin

DreamsOfSteam Wed 05-Oct-11 12:01:35

I had a look to see if I could work out what this is about, but couldn't see anything sinister. Maybe its just the general confrontational tone that can sometimes be abit OTT on here.

come back Velvet
