I don't believe a word of it lately.

Yup, this again.

I KNOW It's because it's the holidays, mostly, but fuckeroo it's a pile of toss here lately.

Between the wank trolls and the drama llamas, the wannabe novelists and the nasty goading returned bannees, it's Not As Much Fun as usual.

I'm reprting threads (which then get deleted, ah the validation) left right and centre and it's getting a bit boring now.

If you're being a troll, just up your game, eh? You're not clever, you're not even funny, you;re not even really annoying. Just dull and repetitive and obvious.

Either do it better or bore the fuck off.

Ta very much.

Play with my kids? Oh god no. The horror. You obviously haven't met them.

I've been so bored today that I've not only done housework but I've done a whole college course.

Hmm. perhaps this is a GOOD thing?

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-Aug-13 19:18:14

Yes do it Reality people love those threads.

i can't say i've noticed any of the things you mention - have i just been reading the wrong threads?

And moaning about drip feeding is so irritating tbh - someone gives a broad stroke OP/certain amount of info, doesn't want to make the OP too boring long. Then responds to any relevant questions and people come along and say 'drip drip drip' like they are some internet police. If you were talking to someone in RL would you smugly say that if they answered a question shedding new light on a scenario? No you would accept it as the natural unfolding of a story.

I've been here nearly 5 years and the place is no different imo.

I've been that bored the last few days Reality, that at have dusted my ceilings, taken all my photos out of the frames and cleaned them, dusted behind the radiators and got DS1 to get all the lampshades down so I could Hoover them! hmm

I've been here six years, I think? Maybe seven? Cripes, perhaps I've just had my fill sad

LittleMissWise that is TOO MUCH cleaning, Sit down before you do yourself a mischief.

I might start a 'who's the cuntiest Mumsnetter'

That always goes down well.

Dackyduddles Tue 20-Aug-13 19:28:55

Well I'm here 52wks a year. Can't see much different tbh.....?

Reality Tue 20-Aug-13 19:29:44

grin Buffy.

There are a few notable 'new' names I am enjoying, I have to say <looks at KellyHOpter>. Namechanging discombobulates me and ruins my spreadsheet,

I think it should be a law that all namechangers pm to update me.

Go for it, Buffy - I'll be the scene shifter. grin

D'you notice that the same threads about the same people and exactly the same circumstances get rolled out every few months?

I saw a thread the other day from a poster about her wealthy friend and the chasm in their friendship and I swear I've seen the same thread from the same poster (different names used though) about 40 times now during my time on MNet. What's that all about?

Haven't a clue what you're talking about but you aren't half coming across as a bunch of snobs

Reality Tue 20-Aug-13 19:38:40

Snobs? Er, what?

I recommend crochet. Easy to learn. Keeps me off here sometimes.

Snobs? confused

littlemisswise Tue 20-Aug-13 19:41:14

Snobs! That's a new one on me!

littlemisswise Tue 20-Aug-13 19:42:32

jollyhappy DH is going away for 4 months in 4 weeks time, my mission when he is away is to learn to crochet. I've got my hooks and wool ready and waiting to go.

BulletProofVestyBunny Tue 20-Aug-13 19:42:55

I do like a good random snobs accusation thrown in, keeps it interesting like.

Sleepathon Tue 20-Aug-13 19:44:11

What exactly are you complaining about??
People posting about things you don't agree with? People posting things that are not to your taste? I don't understand?
It's like a playground all of a sudden.... Oooh I've been here for 5 years! It's just not like it used to be!!

You're all grown women FFS

Last time I checked it was a free forum. If you don't like what is being said then ignore it????!

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-Aug-13 19:44:32

I am dead snobby me. I had a fish finger sandwich for tea with a glass of Dr Pepper. grin

BulletProofVestyBunny Tue 20-Aug-13 19:44:43

I want to learn to crochet so I can make some of those baby octopuses (octopi?) like in John Lewis.

Sparklingbrook Tue 20-Aug-13 19:45:59

Calm down Sleepathon it's only the internet-you seem to be very wound up. If you don't like was is being said on this thread why didn't you ignore it?
