So I know how many people have looked at my very interesting dishwasher thread and not helped me with my dilemma grin

I'm sure Netmums has it grin wink

But how would that in any way be helpful? confused

YABVU, I am on several other forums (not parenting) where they have this and it is just sodding depressing. 242 people have looked at your thread, not one fucker has bothered to reply.

At least on here you can pretend everyone is just too busy to look grin

Can't link on app, it's in products, household goods.

Need a recommendation on a new dishwasher smile

It wouldn't be helpful you're right but Netmums has it wink

2stressed at least I would know that nobody wants to bloody help me instead of wondering 'shall I bump incase people haven't seen it?'

Go for Bosch or Miele. I've got a sleek black Bosch with an adjustable top basket and a timer button that delays the start.

This should be in Site Stuff.


PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 19:40:47

izzy what model is yours and how much was it if you font mind me asking?

Pinot but then you would miss the opportunity to tell me IABU wink

PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 19:43:20

Speaking of autocorrect look if you fancy a laugh

Just because netmums has it doesn't mean we should. As my mum would say 'If netmums jumped off a cliff would you follow?'

Of course that usually got a chorus of 'duh....yes!' in reply but the point stands... Right?

I'm sure that there is an official reason why we don't have this but I can tell you from personal experience of belonging to a different (non-parenting) forum shock that it is BEYOND depressing to have these.

You start what YOU think is a fab thread and then see that 78 people have opened it but not one bugger has posted. sad

Much better to think that's it's got lost somewhere on active, no?!

On the dishwasher thing, a Bosch won MN Best in our reviews

What Pinot said.

PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 19:50:47

Thank you Olivia think Bosch is a winner then, a few more months of saving for me then sad

For the record I don't think those 'x people have seen this thread' things are a good idea, but knew I'd get a few responses wink like you all say they are pretty depressing!

<Feels quite honoured that MNHQ replied to my thread, but wonders how many others in there 'read and ran' haha>

PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 19:52:08

Also for the record I don't actually know if Netmums has this, I was blinded last time someone linked to a thread over there grin

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 05-Sep-11 20:07:22

OP = it's all about a catchy thread title, n'est pas?!

PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 20:13:15

Should my original thread title have contained the words fruit shoot, netmums, greggs sausage rolls, hugz, lol and added the dishwasher part quietly?

PlantHasABabyBean Mon 05-Sep-11 20:16:47

Or something like 'AIBU to park in a mother and baby space so that I can fit my new dishwasher into my side door? By the way which dishwasher would you recommend?' grin

HowlingBitch Mon 05-Sep-11 20:30:08

I've never seen anyone blush in blue on MN before!
