i feel i absolutely have to hide the thread to keep things tidy.

its akin to making sure all the labels on the jars in the cupboard are in a line

so aibu?

Yep, you wierdo grin

CocoPopsAddict Sun 23-Oct-11 22:24:34

Time to hide your own thread then...

Practise what you preach.

Time to hide your own thread then...

and they're better than the ones that don't tell you what's 'inside'.

And Ones That Use Capitals On Each Word.

T'ain't right.

AuntiePickleBottom Sun 23-Oct-11 22:25:41

SirHumphreyAppleby Sun 23-Oct-11 22:27:24

Irony, anyone?

Sirzy Sun 23-Oct-11 22:27:37

Zigzagg. The daft usage of capital letters is the one that annoys me, never understood why anyone over the age of 8 finds capitals so hard they have to use it for every word

Yabvu. Especially for some who Puts Titles Like This. So Very Wrong On Many Levels.hmm

Kaekae Sun 23-Oct-11 22:29:41

Life is too short to worry about such trivial matters.

ScaredTEECat Sun 23-Oct-11 22:30:20

Because it's a thread title and as such should have all main words capitalised. That would be proper punctuation.

And, yes, OP, your title is on 2 lines.

Tortington Sun 23-Oct-11 22:30:51

darn it one word too many

now it looks untidy

Tortington Sun 23-Oct-11 22:31:35

have i proper punctualised then eh?> eh>?

loopylou6 Sun 23-Oct-11 22:31:59

You are also BU to hmm when people are answering your question in a way you clearly don't like.

Tortington Sun 23-Oct-11 22:33:37

i was hmming at myself.

(this is lighthearted thread btw)

ScaredTEECat Sun 23-Oct-11 22:34:51

I wound have capped Off but not at.


AgentZigzag Sun 23-Oct-11 22:35:01

Are you going to hide your own thread then?

Maybe you could stir up a flaming frenzy so you can treat us to a Sunday night dramatic flounce?

Tortington Sun 23-Oct-11 22:36:29

i havent flounced in about 7 years.....

i'd only come back

AgentZigzag Sun 23-Oct-11 22:36:38

You started the flaming while I was x-posting hmm



loopylou6 Sun 23-Oct-11 22:36:54

What Ziggy said.

Tortington Sun 23-Oct-11 22:37:21

oooh capped off not at - righto, will remember that.

<sticks tongue out to those calling my thread title>

<sticks middle finger up too>

AgentZigzag Sun 23-Oct-11 22:38:20

Dramatic flounce/attention seeking return would jazz up your MN spreadsheet...
