Thought it could be interesting to have a thread where people can request AMAs.

As often MNetters might not know their experiences would be interesting to anyone else!

If I was to request some AMA they would probably include things like:

I joined and then left an MLM - AMA

I was in a cult - AMA

I went viral - AMA (internet buzz not covid!)

I'd like someone who works for MI5 but I realise it's prob not possible

I'd like someone from the child maintenance to come on and tell us why it's hard for them to recover debt, outstanding payments from the supposedly paying parent.

I'm not being goady but maybe if we had some understanding about how they work and the difficulties they face in their everyday roles it might help those who are not getting what they need understand why.

Someone who calls people about the car accident they were in.

nancybotwinbloom Tue 15-Dec-20 19:33:03

Ooohhh @Justjoinedforthis that's a good one!

I think I'm blacklisted by these not to call me which is a shame as I live winding them up

That's a great shout - I feel like there was an AMA or another thread that turned into one ages ago from someone who worked with Universal Credit applicants and it seemed really useful to understand where their hands are tied and why certain processes are so clunky.

I'd love one on the csa.

My ex is self employed. Earns over £100k
, owes £10k of debt but it's just not looked into.

Hmrc say it's a CMS issue and CMS say it's a hmrc issue.

Meanwhile he's opening and closing businesses without putting in accounts and nothing ever happens with either of them.

I don't need the money but that's me. Other people do.

If a political party offered to change that they would have a 50% vote. And win.

But it doesn't happen and I dont know why. There should be harsher laws and punishments but there isn't.

I will get off my soap box now shock

Sorry op I didn't mean to go off on a tangent!

I'd like one by PigletJohn. It would be never ending though

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 15-Dec-20 21:24:22

I’d like someone who has worked for the Royal family but they’re probably not allowed.

I'd love to hear from a Crofter/small holder, I'd love to have the grit and skills to be pretty self sufficient but I'm the type of person who dances about sheep poo on a country walk because I don't want to get poo on my wellies 🙈
