A friend on fcbk has told me a talkboard she belongs to has started a thread basically taking the piss out of Mumsnet. She hasnt given me a link but i thnk shes telling the truth.

Yabu. It's the internet. MN isn't "real"'s great and offers support and somewhere to come and waste time as well as a good laugh but tis' not to be taken too seriously. Historically people have always poked fun and things at MN.

Doesn't bother me.

Call the internet police!!

Couldn't care less. I love it here.

Grammaticus Wed 10-Apr-13 14:46:38

What. Some people we don't know on the internet are taking the piss out of us? Like we do out of nethuns? Outrageous!

Are you very easily upset, OP? shock

I really don't care what others say, don't let it upset you.

Why? confused

But why does it bother you so much? I just don't get this. Mumsnet is not the be all and end all of parenting websites. Sometimes Mumsnet is full of self indulgent shite and sometimes it's great. I on occasion show my husband a particularly wanky thread and laugh loudly.

We're right, they're wrong. It's ok, we don't care what they think of us anyway.

I found mumsnet after seeing a slagging off thread on nethuns. I came over to see this terrible place and never went back.

There's plenty to laugh about on here though. There are threads that make me laugh (for all the wrong reasons) every day.

Other talkboards do it all the time Op.
Mn seems to come into far more attention than any other.
Clearly we're doing something right.

ProtegeMoi Wed 10-Apr-13 14:58:11

We're smart, their dumb
We're big, their little
We're right, their wrong
And there's nothing they can do about it!

SoupDragon Wed 10-Apr-13 15:01:46

Why would you be upset, OP, what with this being your only post on MN...

arabesque Wed 10-Apr-13 15:03:23

Doesn't bother me. There are lovely, intelligent, witty and interesting people on Mumsnet. But there are also some awful eejits, nutters, aggressive cows and rude obnoxious twats (I belong to the former group if you're wondering).

But I used to post on Digital Spy and it was the same. Lots of nice posters and some absolute shits.

No forum is perfect.
