Without going into too much detail (I don't want to have to namechange again!) I once posted about a decision DH had made concerning Christmas and my ILs while I was in the throes of morning sickness. It was decided that I was not being unreasonable, and that I should leave the (usually very lovely and supportive) bastard. I felt bad at the amount of vitriol that had been levelled at poor unsuspecting DH so told him about the thread.
He laughed off the vitriol, but he did change his mind about the decision!
However, when the people on the thread found out that I had directed DH to the thread, many of them decided he was some kind of abusive monster who monitored my internet usage or something. It was all a bit strange...
or something like "Am worried about DPs symptoms but he says he is fine and wont go to the Dr, what do you think" - MN can be great for getting other opinions when they are not people around in real life
