Just browsing through my Facebook and This is what someone said during a argument with a group of people.

Well mumsnet folk say things as they are... A spade is a spade, with the occasional embellishment so a spade becomes a digger....

MissMarplesBloomers Thu 11-Dec-14 16:41:16

Clearly you are as vile as MN. You are here. grin

Hoppinggreen Thu 11-Dec-14 16:53:57

Vileness is what I come here for.

Could be worse, they could have called people hun!

Mumsnet is lovely, like a Hedgehog - cute when curled but nasty spikes if you upset it.

MissMarplesBloomers Thu 11-Dec-14 16:57:20

nannynick grin you nailed it!

Just my two cents: but I think that there is a class thing, and I do worry a bit that sometimes, with a poster who is obviously in a vulnerable place, the matter-of-fact, middle class, cynical/sarcastic tone goes too far. It's one thing telling someone they are being unreasonable about something minor like a lack of fettuccine in Waitrose- it's quite another bossing someone who's in a very difficult situation and clearly struggling. I think some of it is an entitlement and a lack of awareness how unusual that tone is outside of the selectively educated upper middle class. I have been a bit shocked at times by the matter-of-fact tone of responses to posters going through major things, like death and serious illness.

Like I said, though, that's just my perception and in matters like this, everyone has different experiences and ideas of what is appropriate.

A spade is not a spade, it's a fucking shovel.

Many of you are vile. There is some useful info here though. I've found it useful for getting some perspective in trying to understand my wife; though I now just realise that I just read the stuff on here in order to reassure myself that she actually is one of the reasonable ones.

I think it's pistonheads for me wink

I used to be a hun. Then MN happened. I have no friends. Dh left me. Children throw eggs at my house.

mytartanscarf Thu 11-Dec-14 17:04:48

Brilliant summary outofcontrol

formerbabe Thu 11-Dec-14 17:05:53

I used to be a hun

Me too....now I'm a right cow!

floatyflo Thu 11-Dec-14 17:06:03

Some days the sharpness of MN gets me down...

But I am still here aren't I? Sucker for punishment grin

Selinasupreme Thu 11-Dec-14 17:07:38

Mumsnet told me to leave my husband, go no contact with my sister and feed my son quinoa. Atleast I still have Mumsnet.

WrappedInABlankie Thu 11-Dec-14 17:08:04

grin

I was actually told I was a horrible person on Sunday and I'm going to be alone forever as I'm horrible.

The person who said this has just got divorced from her 2nd husband who took to living in a separate house for 8 years before leaving her because she was so vile to him so I can't be that horrible as I have a dp and I'm 12+4 with dc2 made me smile though and I though of MN

WeirdCatLady Thu 11-Dec-14 17:13:29

I find that MN can be a nest of vipers (bunch'o'cunts) but only on the places where it is expected to be open season (like AIBU). On the boards where people are asking for advice (like Relationships) the tone is completely different and lovely and supportive.

I used to be a NetHun but soon saw the light.

MN isn't vile. Some people on it are though.
