and/or use textspeak/hun/lil' man/b**tch etc and no paragraphs and no discernible grammar?


am I a terrible old curmudgeon and change is inevitable and in the end the huns will take over the asylum?

sorry hun

I just can't see it happening tbh

Especially not with the reactions if anyone does dare do any of the above! I think in order for it to happen we'd have to be invaded by more hunners than there are MNers.

it's a bad habit I have got into x

sorry x

NB it is a 'x' I am not committing genocide x

I think it is annoying.

I wanted to go on that thread and say 'you are allowed to say BITCH ffs, we are all adults around here'

I agree with you minty. Text speak and hunning and 'would of' get right on my tits.

Its an informal chat forum, does it really matter if all the I's are dotted and T's crossed?

Mate I do forget and do a x at the end sometimes.

I shall NEVER get over visceral hate of txtspk, lil man, bockle etc, yeuch.

Grammar, well I try to ignore, cos not everyone is edumacated like me.

Fairylea Sun 04-Nov-12 18:36:51

I agree.

B1ueberryJam Sun 04-Nov-12 18:37:54

I don't care. hth


HecatePhosphorus Sun 04-Nov-12 18:38:57

You are being unreasonable to start threads when you owe me an update.

And I'm going to stalk you round mumsnet going like this

I would hate it if Mumsnet became one of those forums where everyone has a huge signature at the bottom of every post they make that has a counter for how old each of their children is/how far along they are in pregnancy.

I really don't care that your 'little angel number 1' is 4 years, three months, 2 days and 1 hour old.

Pagwatch Sun 04-Nov-12 18:41:24

I think

You are being a being a cunt hun. Lol x

FrothyOM Sun 04-Nov-12 18:41:26

I think a bit of variety is fine. If you are not that kind of poster then don't post like that. smile xxx

SarryB Sun 04-Nov-12 18:41:48

Sorry forgot.


BadgersBottom Sun 04-Nov-12 18:43:13

Mintyy Sun 04-Nov-12 18:45:43

TheBigJessie Sun 04-Nov-12 18:46:08

I agree with pagwatch


BitBewildered Sun 04-Nov-12 18:46:50

I saw someone write 'fupping' on a thread yesterday. They had capitalised it and were using it in place of the word 'fucking'.

I had to hide the thread. It made me feel sick.

FrothyOM Sun 04-Nov-12 18:48:09

Pagwatch it's c**nt ya naughty hun x

Viviennemary Sun 04-Nov-12 18:48:22

Don't like this Hun business. But I'm really guilty of not using paragraphs. It saves space. grin

IceNoSlice Sun 04-Nov-12 18:48:45

Pagwatch grin

Grin - "bockle"? Really? People really say that? How horrendous <boak>

GetOrfAKAMrsUsainBolt Sun 04-Nov-12 18:51:02

I think we need to make a stand.

Next time I see a thread where someone says b1tch or something I am going to pile on and say 'you can swear on mumsnet, you pious motherfucker' or similar.
