to think that AIBU threads which start "to ask you..." should be banned?

Yes. I'm still on my thread-policing high horse.

But if someone is "asking you", then they are just posting here for traffic.

Annoyingly, AIBU has just become an extended part of the Chat forum.

"Do you want people to agree with you on your thread,NynaevesSister ?

If you do, it's in the wrong place."

Usualsuspects - oh goodness no. Is why I posted in AIBU. It seems to be the sort of topic that people have strong views on. I am usually in Primary School forum so would have posted there if I wanted a different type of conversation.

Chaos - I think I have to ask MNHQ to do so. Can't actually do it myself. But they usually do so quickly if the OP asks.

I really can't see the problem. If you don't lime the thread title, ignore it or start your own message board where other pedants can congregate any instead and save the rest of us the tedious viligilante act.

AIBU to wonder if Nyn can hacherlly delete her own thread.

Sorry - parenting ( I was never good at it ) grin

patenting would be a bit of a dead one! grin

And scouts <shudder>>

Actually it's brownies that freak me out. I'm not sure why. It's some weird thing, like being scared of clowns except they travel in a sort of swarm.

Most of the stuff posted in chat could be posted in a specific topic - but people tend to chuck it all in chat & hope for the best. It doesn't bother me. Some of the AIBU threads are just silly ( AIBU to have beans on toast for tea ) but I'd never email HQ about it. Tbh, I think there's far too many topics on here, HQ could get rid of half them & no one would notice. Chat, AIBU, relationships, patenting, pregnancy, employment & health would more than suffice.

I couldnt care less where anything is posted. I look at them all anyway, and often I dont look at where they have been posted.

Surely it would only matter if you yourself spend a lot of time exclusively on AIBU?

Make sure that kindle is fully charged!

MardyBra Sat 14-Jun-14 13:22:05

And no 3G signal either probably. <shudders>

KarlWrenbury Sat 14-Jun-14 13:20:14

MardyBra Sat 14-Jun-14 13:19:12

KarlWrenbury Sat 14-Jun-14 13:16:41

Pagwatch Sat 14-Jun-14 13:15:41

It's good. I'm standing behind you, holding your coat.
You and me - team 'fuck off'
I'm just the cowardly one. You are magnificent.

<has probably over thought this>

'Aibu to ask you to recommend a washing up liquid?' Yes, yabvvvvvvvvvvvvvvu.

KarlWrenbury Sat 14-Jun-14 13:13:05

Theodorous Sat 14-Jun-14 13:10:49

Yawn yawn yawn.

MardyBra Sat 14-Jun-14 13:09:15

Hooray! Thanks Ellen. flowers back. Feeling less mardy now.

As you were everyone.

EllenMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 14-Jun-14 13:05:22

Apologies to Mardybra flowers, wasn't quite sure what was going on as at our end we were getting reports of silly threads kicking off in AIBU but hadn't quite joined up the dots... Anyhow we do know it is frustrating if things get posted in AIBU that should and could be posted in a specific topic. If you report any you find, we will try to deal with them swiftly.
Hope that's OK grin.

The eating food one is gone shock

Pagwatch Sat 14-Jun-14 12:49:04

I am going to reply with 'yes' and 'don't be silly' or 'fuck off' if Karl is here too.
