Why the chuffing hell do people need to be so flaming aggressive in some of their posts?!
Everybody has different experiences/opinions. Whatever. There's no need at all to call someone an 'idiot' (or anything else for that matter) simply because they have a different view to yourself.
It's bullying. Surely. Makes me wonder whether they'd be so forthcoming with their assaults if they weren't hiding behind a computer screen.
Sorry, whinge over angry

I think you must be the angel sent to help me define 'irony' to struggling students.

MrSunshine Fri 28-Sep-12 17:11:41

It is not bullying. Find yourself a dictionary.

Also, find yourself another topic since you aren't asking an aibu.

LostItYearsAgo Fri 28-Sep-12 17:15:42

Am I being unreasonable to think it? That good enough for you smart arse?!

MrSunshine Fri 28-Sep-12 17:16:44

No. AIBU to think what? That people are as rude as you?
YABU.

Pagwatch Fri 28-Sep-12 17:16:58

In fairness, I do have quite a smart arse.

That's not bullying!

If you ask a bunch of strangers what they think, they will tell you.

'That good enough for you smart arse'

erm....OP? Pot. Kettle. Black.

You just called someone smart arse! Or was that meant to be ironic?

pictish Fri 28-Sep-12 17:22:23

You whine about the word idiot, then pedal out smartarse when someone disagrees with you?

Have you any idea how daft you look?

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 28-Sep-12 17:22:26

LRD - like manna from heaven, isn't it! grin

LostItYearsAgo Fri 28-Sep-12 17:23:30

Irony! Thank the lord for people with a sense of humour.
I give up <off to RL I go>

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 28-Sep-12 17:23:58

Never was a username more apt. Off you trot.

NameChangeGalore Fri 28-Sep-12 17:24:53

Where where where? How how how? When when when?

puds11 Fri 28-Sep-12 17:25:25

LRD was op being aggresive on another thread?

Op you've made yourself look a tit.

puds11 Fri 28-Sep-12 17:26:10

Have i missed something???

YABU for having confused me so!

LRDtheFeministDragon Fri 28-Sep-12 17:26:42

ali - for a pedant such as myself, yes! grin

puds - not so far as I know? confused I do feel it's fair enough to reply on the basis of this thread since it's this thread we're answering ...

Was this supposed to be a joke?

If so....epic fail as my dd would say

HTH

pictish Fri 28-Sep-12 17:28:14

Thank God for people with a sense of humour? What??

MamaMumrOrangeTheGolden Fri 28-Sep-12 17:30:09

Initially I had a paranoid moment, because I called someone a fucking idiot today, the I remembered this is aibu so the op could be referring to anyone!

travellingwilbury Fri 28-Sep-12 17:32:29

I am probably more of a smart arse in rl , actually quite nice on here .

phantomhairpuller Fri 28-Sep-12 17:34:38

biscuit anyone?!

LRDtheFeministDragon Fri 28-Sep-12 17:35:00

Oh. That was a joke? confused

Ok then.

thornrose Fri 28-Sep-12 17:37:33

Taxi for LostIt!

Hopeforever Fri 28-Sep-12 17:39:15

Having just recovered from reading the first page of another thread, I agree that mners say things far more harshly on MN as they are anonymous. Well I hope they are not so rude in RL
