AIBU to think MN not what I thought it would be

After years of hearing about how influential and "middle class" MN is. I am I being unreasonable to think that I have found it (over past few months - so can't judge beyond this) a bit "meh2! A lot of the postings appear to be attention-seeking, middle-of-the-road and basically dull. Am I missing something?

Hello Sid

The thing is, whatever your intentions, you're calling us middle of the road, attention seeking and dull. I know you're not naming names or claiming that everyone's like that, but you appear to be talking about most of us. Could you honestly have expected a good reaction to that comment? Anywhere?

All of human life is on MN. It's simply not possible to say 'most' of us are anything really, but if you want to get a sense of us at our best, go look at the Classics topic.

<narrows eyes>*SPsFanjo*.... Where exactly are you leasing us space for the Puddle?

I have an opening for a dildo

Why does that sound wrong? blush

SantasStrapOn Tue 13-Nov-12 00:52:23


I could be a dodo. That's the closest you get.

I'm noice not naice. Automatically excluded I guess sad

WorraLiberty Tue 13-Nov-12 00:53:51

A dead dodo dildo?

But what would Santa say? shock

Thumbwitch Tue 13-Nov-12 00:58:13

Arf at "opening for a dildo" - you know exACTly why that sounds wrong, young lady! grin

SantasStrapOn Tue 13-Nov-12 00:59:19

WorraLiberty Tue 13-Nov-12 01:05:32

Oh I've just been called young grin

<< Preens shamelessly >>

WorraLiberty Tue 13-Nov-12 01:06:57

Dido would've made a good dead dodo dildo

But sadly Eminem had other ideas

Thumbwitch Tue 13-Nov-12 01:07:50

Before joining, I thought: lots of broody, fluffy, blinky chickens cosily swapping cake recipes.

Did not expect the startling, sometimes brilliant, sometimes surreal wit, wisdom and aggression that actually makes MN.

Granted it's not all like that, but enough to keep me coming back even though I should be doing the bins right now.

Every day I'm amazed at how wonderfully articulate, funny and - for the most part - empathetic MNetters are. The whole landscape is entirely different to any other forum type thing laden with weird tickers and shite. YABU. Of course it's not wholly middle class but it's certainly not 'meh'.

differentnameforthis Tue 13-Nov-12 21:51:34

Is meh2 an advance on meh?

Mylittlepuds Tue 13-Nov-12 22:03:48

Ha to Meh2

PickledFanjoCat Tue 13-Nov-12 22:04:25

Ha2 to your meh2

GrimAndHumourless Tue 13-Nov-12 22:09:13

oo er OP's a feisty one

<attention-seeks like billy-o>

Woof to you lady!

Jesus, you should report your post. Then HQ can take 'the startling, sometimes brilliant, sometimes surreal wit, wisdom and aggression that actually makes MN' as their new slogan. It's perfect.

GrimAndHumourless Tue 13-Nov-12 22:22:49

God I remember the Woof To You Too Lady poster, in fact I had it as my NN for a bit grin
