To wonder why people keep posting about the same things

Kids not being invited to weddings

People who don't like mothers breastfeeding in public

Pensioners parking in P&T spaces

They've all been done a million times so why do posters start yet another thread on the same bloody topic.

Also AIBU to keep posting on these threads no matter how repetitive because I enjoy the old familiar ding dong? grin.

We seem to have a bit of a (dare I say it?) invasion at the moment. I am hiding all BF/wedding/ASD/ADHD/benefits threads. My active list is lovely <strokes list>

Because the same things keep happening to different people perhaps? There may be 100 threads already about kids at weddings, but it still matters to someone when they get the invite, and they want to talk about it. They don't want to know that other people have talked about this before and there is a range of opinion. They want to talk about their situation now.

But I do wish people would look for a current thread a bit more on some topics - there are several now about weaning, and were several about the Eastenders storyline. It would be nice if people joined in an existing discussion instead of assuming they were the first one today to notice a news story etc.
