Had just clicked on it then got a message saying it didn't exist anymore!

It was a troll.

Rhinestone Sun 07-Aug-11 22:45:15

Oh. Still school holidays eh?

caughtinanet Sun 07-Aug-11 22:45:51

Was it a troll - I assumed it was a different take on the co sleeping debate.

troll or thread about a thread, it was very distasteful and alway going to end most unpleasantly.

ScrambledSmegs Sun 07-Aug-11 22:51:12

Shame, scottishmummy was making me giggle.

Can never take stuff like that thread seriously as it always screams bored 14 yr old to me!

caughtinanet Sun 07-Aug-11 22:55:44

I know everyone always blames the school holidays but how bored does a 14 year old need to be to decide to make up posts on a parenting forum? How many 14 year olds have even heard of parenting fora?

Portofino Sun 07-Aug-11 22:58:13

I don't believe most trolls on here are bored teenagers at all.

Portofino Sun 07-Aug-11 22:59:26

Most trolls seem to know exactly how to tick the "outrage" boxes. Your average 14 yo would just look silly.

Of course they're not kids...just regs abusing the name change function

caughtinanet Sun 07-Aug-11 23:02:06

I think you're right worra - in that case troll isn't really the right description, not sure what the best one would be.

rumpleteaser Sun 07-Aug-11 23:03:27

I was just thinking the same thing caughtinanet.

Whatmeworry Sun 07-Aug-11 23:04:13

So.....would you breastfeed someone else's baby then grin

Wet- nursing was very common once, don't know when it died out.

rumpleteaser Sun 07-Aug-11 23:17:11

I struggled to bf my own baby never mind anyone elses!

ScrambledSmegs Sun 07-Aug-11 23:19:12

Blimey, that's my wrists slapped then. OK, not bored teenagers, just posters who may be regulars out for a wind-up with the maturity of bored teenagers.

I have met a wet nurse (in another country) and as it was a completely regular thing there so it seemed normal to me too. It's all down to circumstances and culture, isn't it?

worraliberty Sun 07-Aug-11 23:20:23

Oh I think troll is still a fair description caughtinanet

I think most trolls are regs because as someone said, they normally know which buttons to push.

ScrambledSmegs Sun 07-Aug-11 23:20:41

PS No, I wouldn't, unless it were a completely unlikely matter of life or death of course.

simpson Sun 07-Aug-11 23:24:01

probably the same troll as last night about insisting on going private to deliver baby, NHS were crap etc etc etc

gallicgirl Sun 07-Aug-11 23:28:02

When people have been saying trolls are out because it's the school holidays, I thought you all meant it was the mothers misbehaving for kicks rather than the kids.

blush

Suppose mothers are too busy in holidays.......

I take school holiday trolls to be reg's staying up later & drinking more wine than normal & their little cliques posting obvious threads to cause chaos.

Hmm, a child & parenting parking thread may be next, Oh, Oh, how about a leaving my child asleep in the car whilst I unload shopping/pay for petrol thread.

<<passes fruit shoots & happy meals out>>

We deleted that thread because we had some serious doubts that it was genuine and didn't want to waste your precious posting time.

bringmesunshine2009 Mon 08-Aug-11 10:55:38

I thought it was SIL of the woman who posted about the co sleeping seeking vengence smile

Made a point I guess, if is so right on to co sleep with someone else's baby why not whip a boob out and BF it and all.
