A new topic for people who don't like mumsnet, any of the posters on it, any of the topics, the way it is run and pretty much everything else in the entire world since the dawn of time

What do you think?

There is a "Flouncers' Corner"; shouldn't we have a "I hate it here but refuse to flounce and only want to complain about everything Corner" as well.

All threads moaning about mumnset could be put into the right topic, and then people who enjoy chatting here wouldn't derail them or not take them seriously and upset the already upset op's.

[getting excited by idea now...]

We could actually take it in turns to be Haterzed. We would take turns to be Mumsnet Most Hated.

Me first (naturally) followed by Hully and then Mary and the Worra ...and our Haterz could win little gold stars to put on their official badges, bit like they do in MacDonalds.

LaQueen Fri 05-Apr-13 19:52:11

Oooh, could I have my very own sub-forum, within ShiteStuff where all my Haterz, can froth and foam about me to their heart's content - you know, like a support group for each other?

Ideally, I'd like my forum's colours to be Dog's Breath and Soured Grape.

Yes, I agree with the 8 cyclical threads as outlined by Tortoise.

I think I shall stay on the "arse around and talk shite" thread.

navada, your last sentence is the reason I think aibu should be split to include a section called "I want a moan" grin

navada Thu 04-Apr-13 08:33:08

It would probably be one of the most read sections on Mumsnet - let's be honest, if I posted a thread saying ' I hate Mumsnet & everyone on it' it would get 200 hits within minutes, as opposed to me asking, 'does anyone have a quick & easy recipe for minestrone soup' - which would be largely ignored. That's just how people are, they like a bit of drama & gossip.

Plus, I hate my dh sometimes, but I'd never leave him. < side issue, but just needed to get that off my chest >

MavisGrind Thu 04-Apr-13 08:15:04

Exactly Tortoise. There are something like only 7 original story lines IIRC and in the same way there are only 8 sorts of thread.

Tortoiseontheeggshell Thu 04-Apr-13 07:04:11

lisad, no, there actually are only eight threads.

There's the one about Philpott/whatever the Monster Of The Day is, the one about breastfeeding, the one about AIBU to do all the housework and childcare forever and ever for no apparent reason oh but he's a lovely man really, the silly one started about soft furnishings that completely inexplicably turned into a bunfight, the Site Stuff one started to ask for clarification on why that one turned into a bunfight, the one started to complain that none of the above threads were appropriate because they were too sweary/not sweary enough/contained or did not contain discriminatory language, and also nobody has a sense of humour anymore but they should all stop poking fun at a very serious topic, the one about how it was better in the old days, and the one started as a safe space to talk about shite and escape from all of the above.

The Snidebar (of Shame)?

RedLentil Thu 04-Apr-13 00:02:33

Exactly, and it could be a cross between a siding-sniding and a shining-sniding.

OliviaMumsnet could arrive into an offending thread with a jolly 'Here's Olivia!! like so

TheDailyWail Thu 04-Apr-13 00:00:47

I love the idea of Shite Stuff. Make it so that only MNHQ and anyone with a membership number of less than 29k can view it.wink grin

K8Middleton Wed 03-Apr-13 23:50:55

Yes put the snide ones in <drum roll> <over sells massively>

The Sniding

Geddit? Possibly one for those overly acquainted with Thomas The Tank Engine.

hmm

snide - > snidey - > erm, sniding? possibly?

Mavis, switch to Google Chrome. They have a really easy menu thingy for changing how it looks and a spell-checker and ad-blocker

RedLentil Wed 03-Apr-13 23:16:01

Course, the answer is to ban all participles. That'd be goading, moaning, bitching, and patronising posts gone in one go...

<ponders what to do with snide posts>

thornrose Wed 03-Apr-13 23:07:31

Thanks for all the reports, we're moving this thread to Shite Stuff now

That would be the best! Please let it happen.

K8Middleton Wed 03-Apr-13 22:47:25

Steam cleaner? Humpf.







grin

MavisGrind Wed 03-Apr-13 22:37:54

Isnt' a K8-E a type of steam cleaner?

MavisGrind Wed 03-Apr-13 22:37:15

That's even worse Maryz my AC has gone all big (in places). I've tried that Ctrl 0 thing and everything. I've spent my evening covering up each eye in turn to find out which is the offender <doesn't get out much>

Maryz Wed 03-Apr-13 22:36:32

Funnys, where was that?

Most regular "regulars" don't name-change, even to pile in. But the anti-certain-regular threads in the last week have been odd from that point of view.

Name-changing just to pile in is the lowest of the low, really hmm.

Maryz Wed 03-Apr-13 22:33:18

It's ok Mavis <soothes> it is the type. It's gorn all small.

Shouldn't it be K8-E?

piprabbit Wed 03-Apr-13 22:30:49

This is the sanest thread I have read in days. I've been thinking that MN was suffering from an exceptionally well-plotted and over-manned site invasion.

MavisGrind Wed 03-Apr-13 22:29:09

I hate MN at the moment as Active Convos has gone all weird on me with text looking all odd and not quite right and I know it's not the site, it's my aged eyes and I'm going to have to get specs on Friday afterall and I dont' think I'll suit the DT Doctor Who ones I want. And I can't quite concentrate on the threads at the moment as I've got weird eyes.

And it's all MN fault.

FunnysInLaJardin Wed 03-Apr-13 22:24:39

tell you what I really really don't like is when regular posters nc to pile onto a thread and have a go at someone. I didn't think this actually happened. Mt eyes have been opened well and truly

Sparklingpeaceandlovebrook Wed 03-Apr-13 22:21:58

YY to a 'piss on your chips topic, and 'shite stuff'. Or a 'not this old shite again' topic.

I'm in smile

K8Middleton Wed 03-Apr-13 22:17:37

Maryz, you can still call me Katie smile

I contemplated K8i but it looks like an old Nokia hmm
