But it's not the same.

It used to be all green fields, don't you know?

That's right!

And it was powered by hamsters and you had to type with a chisel.

And mobile phones were the size of a brick, and just for talking; none of this texting rubbish!

Frankly I'm sick of people complaining about the people complaining that MN ain't what it used to be wink

I've only been here 5 months and it's always been the same for me grin

YANBU to use the word 'twatbags', although you could have squeezed a 'cock off' into it somewhere?

But we enjoy moaning, CoffeeDodger - that's the whole point!

I've been here since we discussed animal skins instead of Per Una and it's just as good as it ever was.

In a general way I agree. The essence remains the same and other bits just evolve over time. But at this very moment in time, it's bloody mad. Invasions, trollery, bored GCSE students, that's 3 of the horsemen. Chuck in barbie schlepping in on a shetland pony and the Apocalypse will be upon us.

David Cameron's already risen, it's only a matter of time...

I love MN. grin

Especially since I'm posting from the new iPhone app.

I do remember when it was all fields though.

I still don't like the sneering and snobbery that is MUCH MORE prevalent. <stubborn>.

AgentZigzag Thu 09-Jun-11 17:29:25

If the Apocalypse has a red leicester cheese toastie I'll forgive her anything SOH grin

I agree, Hully. Thankfully I'm so busy with work at the moment hmm I think I've missed an awful lot of it.

(Although I have been stirring up trouble on Gransnet)

FriedaLivery Thu 09-Jun-11 17:30:39

ive missed it all BUT at least we can be reassured mn has been "going down hill for a good few years"

FriedaLivery Thu 09-Jun-11 17:30:59

( agreeing with mutt) its a continual theme

Itsjustafleshwound Thu 09-Jun-11 17:31:12

It is just the bad spelling, knee-jerk reactions and bigotry and downright ignorance that is getting to me at the moment!! Mumsnet is really missing the 'surreal' element ... sorry ....

So many postings should just be answered with a SWF/SIGTFY/Calm down dear sneer...

<contemplates a shift to Gransnet> Are there more manners amongst our silvery brethren?
