Look at the last 39 threads and ask yourself is this normal or are people a bit silly?

Maybe I have a different active convos to you. All the threads drawing my attention this evening are rather serious - rape myths and divorce and sexual abuse.

mrsjay Sat 26-Jan-13 21:14:44

I have just been on Active convos I am not seeing the bizarre tbh

But it is like the thinking out loud for the plain stupid or uneducated.

Like how do I lose a stone

Or how do I save money

How do i get a mortgage

What car is cheap to run

All looks normal for MN. I left this went to look was enthralled in random thread, of course people are a bit silly, did you just realise this?

habbibu Sat 26-Jan-13 21:18:42

Are the plain stupid or uneducated not allowed to post?

Sparklingbrook Sat 26-Jan-13 21:18:51

Maybe it's not the forum for you then OP. Perhaps you need to go in another direction. What do you want to talk about.

BumpingFuglies Sat 26-Jan-13 21:19:28

OP, people like to talk. Otherwise they would Google. What's your problem?

AgentZigzag Sat 26-Jan-13 21:19:49

Maybe people just want to chat, OP? shock

What was it that made you take the time to post this thread?

You're doing exactly the same thing, it's hardly a pressing dilemma you've got and need advice/support you can't get anywhere else.

Of course MN is bizarre, if it wasn't it'd be NM.

mrsjay Sat 26-Jan-13 21:20:30

are we not allowed to be a bit daft it is after all social networking where people just well chat confused

hf128219 Sat 26-Jan-13 21:20:49

I have been around for 5 years! It's just beginning to concern me. Really worried about other people and their down right lack of common sense and knowledge.

Are people really that daft?

well it's not going to be the same as real life is it - It's a board full of anonymous usernames who are free to type whatever they want to with no fear of any judgement or consequence. Naturally it will attract a different kind of content to conversation around the school gates or in the office.

mrsjay Sat 26-Jan-13 21:22:10

first thread in active i read was somebody was was small in height talking about wedding dresses I fail to see what is daft about that

DoingTheSwanThing Sat 26-Jan-13 21:22:10

Apparently so.

Chubfuddler Sat 26-Jan-13 21:22:19

Have you met many people?

Some of them are deeply stupid.

Although I don't think any of your examples are particularly stupid.

I believe we were discussing socialism, constructivionism, patriarchal constructs and determinism -

that is where the party is at grin

itsallinmyhead Sat 26-Jan-13 21:27:10

Bizarre, silly, whatever. I love MN. I'm not a particularly well known member but always find great support or a good laugh, dependant on what I'm looking for.

I'd say, if it doesn't 'float yer boat' don't log in.

habbibu Sat 26-Jan-13 21:28:43

Why isn't it ok to ask which car is cheap to run? People's experience can be v useful. That isn't a common sense issue.
