I've just read at least 4 different threads from people having a really hard time with serious illness and berevements.

Could we suspend viperocity for an evening please.

Peace and light.

StillIRiselikeAZombie Mon 29-Oct-12 19:49:50

And a [cwtch] ?

ClippedPhoenix Mon 29-Oct-12 19:51:09

Oh dear, what happened? Sometimes on line can be shit.

StillIRiselikeAZombie Mon 29-Oct-12 19:52:51

Just loads of sad threads all at the same time.

Were posters being nasty to those people with serious illness and bereavements?

Nobody is being nasty on the relevant threads...nothing but love and support.
It would be nice if the whole of MN was this supportive to everyone for tonight.

Were you on loads of threads where people didn't sort of agree with you, or are you worring about other's?

I was just thinking the same thing Still. I have just read two heartbreaking threads. Worra everyone is being kind and lovely on those threads but it puts all the other insignificant crap in perspective.

No nastiness at all. Lots of niceness.

I think the most wonderful thing about mumsnet that if a poster really needs help and support then they get it in a fantastic cuddle wave both here and in private messages.

Sure we all have an opinion on some posts that are lighthearted etc but when it's serious you can get fantastic help.

I have no idea which threads the OP means are they here in AIBU?

<< Confuddled >>

ClippedPhoenix Mon 29-Oct-12 20:02:07

Well then, I don't understand the OP grin

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Mon 29-Oct-12 20:04:10

I'll second that. I have been avoiding MN lately because I can't deal with it when actually I am having the worst time I have ever had in my entire, entire life at the moment. However it's made me turn to my RL friends which I suppose is healthy.

squeakytoy Mon 29-Oct-12 20:06:43

The threads Op is referring to are on Chat. This is AIBU.

YABU actually, and I am extremely sorry for all of those people that have started the threads which OP is on about, but it is a different section of the board, and there is no nastiness, bitching, or vipering on those threads.

WorraLiberty Mon 29-Oct-12 20:11:00

Someone's kindly messaged me regarding the threads the OP is talking about.

However, it is confusing OP...given that you're not in the same topic as the threads IYSWIM.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Mon 29-Oct-12 20:11:09

Doesn't stop her wishing it. And I think her wish goes beyond that actually. When you are in a terrible place, or hear about what terrible things people are going through, it does make you wonder how people can get so worked up about parking places, wedding invitations and how people pronounce things smile

i think it would be very pleasant if mumsnetters gave up being such vipers. however, i still wouldn't be able to agree with their points of view.

ScarahStratton Mon 29-Oct-12 20:14:28

What do you mean lovebunny?

ClippedPhoenix Mon 29-Oct-12 20:14:57

Sometimes as you say ariel you won't find the answer on the internet boards and you do actually have to reach out to people in real life, which you obviously have and thats a good thing. Chat is what it is and people sort of let their hair down rather than having to stick to topic.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Mon 29-Oct-12 20:16:55

Yes smile

Peace and live people. I'm off to Real Life for a bit. Half an hour or so anyway.
