To think that it is childish to use this forum to have a dig/obvious bitch at another poster you have disagreed with elsewhere?

Or am I misreading things and this is a place to draw a line under things and make friends? Doesn't seem that way?

Looking at the bunfight thread, it just seems to me that people are trying to drag up 'fights' in an area where their friends are and so will back them up?

Maybe I am just too new to understand this place yet? wink

YANBU if that's true. Some people have a LOT of time on their hands despite DC's wink

I thought it was meant to be a joke. Has it degenerated them? Ah well....

<checks bunfight thread in case I'm missing something good>

Seems to still be all in good sweary fun.

It started as a joke but seemed to get a bit more personal towards the end! Off too see if I can figure out how to do a link on this board!!!

That said - if I do a link maybe I am contributing to said behaviour. Huummmmmmm, interesting!!!

Bunfight thread is supposed to be a piss-take!

The one I am on wasn't started by you ApocalypseCheese (I dont think) - off too look.....

booyhoo Wed 10-Nov-10 21:18:39

aibu to think it's bad form to start a thread about other posters rather than a) have it out with them on the thread or b) ignore?

catinboots Wed 10-Nov-10 21:20:15

Link. Please.

toddlerwrangler Wed 10-Nov-10 21:20:29

The one I am looking at was started by Loonies (apologys accepted, ApocolypseChese!) - and before anyone jumps on the flame bandwagon, it was obviously a joke!!

My AIBU question relates to the way people tend to bring up other 'scraps' in the forum, seemingly to have a dig? But like I say, I am quite new and think I may be missing the jist of the place!!

surely that's up to other posters if they want to rehash their scraps? if you don't like it hide the thread. we don't have thread police here.

grin @ MadameDeathstare!

toddlerwrangler Wed 10-Nov-10 21:30:41

MadamDeathstare - thanks for explaining the 'groundrules' to me (without swearing!).

Well, it seems my question has been answered. I don't want to do a link to the content of the bunfight thread I am looking at as I actually agree with booyhoo that that is basically doing the very thing I am complaing about!!!!!!!!

I am sorted on this one so shall vacate this paticular forum- lets see if the thread dies or not!!

ApocalypseCheese Wed 10-Nov-10 21:31:10

I'm not apologising, and it's bad form to be a l'il miss stirry knickers on an open forum, don'tcha know ?

ginodacampoismydh Wed 10-Nov-10 21:33:02
