Often I pose a question that is really a talk thread. It opens me up to "opinions" (nasty ones) when I am really looking for a bit of back and forth.

Well go to chat then. hmm

Not "back and forth" - contact - isn't that what we are really after? A bit of company when the kids are in bed without having to have a huge debate. I don't know the answer by the way.

But I often come off Mumsnet feeling terrible about other peoples' opinions of me.

mmm - maybe 'chat'

Never seen chat - where is it?

I think you need to join one of the cliquey threads really. They seem to just chat on there. So, are you a fashionista, a feminista or a wanker?

PaperView Wed 15-Jun-11 21:12:49

Of course there is back and forth chat. WTF do you think most of us do all night?!

CLick this for _chat

Or scroll up and click on the bit that says ACTIVE. That's short for active conversation...you know...chit chat.

Salmotrutta Wed 15-Jun-11 21:12:52

Well just join in the non-controversial threads on Chat or whatever?

I'm sure no-one has terrible opinions about you - unless you yourself hold controversial or awful views on things?

Sounds like you've had your fingers burned?

Ah - found it - thank god for that!

basingstoke - of the 3 choices I would have to say I am a wanker.

whatever17 Wed 15-Jun-11 21:15:09

But not very often!

No need to be so snappy to newer people - AIBU has turned into a really busy area with people starting threads that do belong in chat, eg 'AIBU to ask you what you're having for dinner' or whatever, just because it gets more responses than any other section. Not that surprising that people can miss the existence of the chat area.

whatever17 Wed 15-Jun-11 21:20:46

Thank you - I'm off to chat! Thank you Tidey, I agree that people get stuck on AIBU because it is busy.
