To suggest banning those cliquey type threads which don't belong in AIBU?

The ones where anybody new to MN doesn't have a clue what anybody is on about and which aren't really an AIBU but rather a pointless attempt to attract attention/be funny/demonstrate their matey-ness with the rest of the MN clique?
Not saying their isn't a place for such threads just saying shift them off AIBU to stop other users wasting precious seconds of their life clicking. N them.

My cat comes in eats ONE biscuit and leaves again.

He really is a furry bastard.

You can't catsplain. They have heads full of toys.

AIBU to wonder why anyone in their right minds would have a cat?

<glares balefully at one cat asleep on clean washing and other one winding up dog>

Mine is overheating on the windowsill. So I opened the window on the other more shady windowsill. But she sits there still, panting and looking at me malevolently.

She's annoyed you've taken away her high moral ground.

To the poster further up - I didn't join just to support that stalker bloke. In any case I wasn't even supporting him. And how would I have even have known that thread was going on if I hadn't already joined in any case?

Mine came off the windowsill. Looked at me for a bit. Licked herself and then misjudged and fell off the settee.

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:49:28


Did she then stalk of after giving you a withering look to say"I meant to do that"?

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:50:54

"as if to say"

YouTheCat Wed 03-Apr-13 15:52:13

Yes, she did. Or it might have been an accusatory look. hmm

Salmotrutta Wed 03-Apr-13 15:53:43

Oh yeah.

It was your fault after all for providing the sofa.

I am not, contrary to my households beliefs, a nagger or a control freak. As I often point out, I just like it when shit happens.

Pancakeflipper Wed 03-Apr-13 17:08:53

I hate going to work - I miss all the stalker threads.
