WorraLiberty Sat 13-Dec-14 11:51:02

KLAXON anyone?

Nomama Sat 13-Dec-14 11:53:41

Erm biscuit or fbiscuit perhaps

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 11:55:28

Oh you are probably right, people who have come on here to post a fricking biscuit.
Just I dislike the OP telling ys how we should respond to a post.

and who even says that in real life.

Fallingovercliffs Sat 13-Dec-14 11:57:45

Jeeze, I've seen some objectionable behaviour on MN but people posting 'lighthearted'. Really??

Is the Christmas stress getting to you?

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 11:58:26

i am not stressed about Christmas. At all. Its a day with a roast meal.

Nancy66 Sat 13-Dec-14 11:58:38

'triggering' is massively overused.

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 11:59:44

imagine you started a thread

" i hate my skirts " SAD THREAD

People would think you were nuts

RubberBulletKisses Sat 13-Dec-14 12:02:19

It's not really telling you how to respond to a post though. It's telling you how the poster intends their post to come across.

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 12:05:02

then they should post more skilfully?

HouseBaelish Sat 13-Dec-14 12:05:17

I think "Triggers" is really valid - better a bit of overuse, which affects no-one at all, than someone inadvertantly reading a post which causes them problems

Nomama Sat 13-Dec-14 12:05:39

I've never posted a biscuit before.... I have always thought they were a bit confused or should that be envy ?


Fallingovercliffs Sat 13-Dec-14 12:06:42

Maybe you should try being a little more light hearted OP?

I agree but then people should also not seek to take offence to everything.

But then it's an open Internet forum which tends towards the "worthy" so take it or leave it <<shrug>>

PrincessFudgeBonnet Sat 13-Dec-14 12:13:45

They have to do it or they get people like you raging at them. Can't win can they!

Everybody should chill the fuck out.

It's christmas.

ClashCityRocker Sat 13-Dec-14 12:27:46

I don't understand people who post threads moaning about idiosyncrasies of posters or the forum in general. Should we only post in a prescribed manner? People can post how they want.

HelloitsmeFell Sat 13-Dec-14 12:33:18


'Triggering' has become a new buzzword and it really gets on my tits.

As does 'lighthearted.' in brackets in a thread title.

It's as though we are not capable of spotting the humour or irony in a thread for ourselves.

And no, I am not suffering from Christmas related stress, just getting a bit weary of tedious cliches.

And while we are on the subject I also really dislike 'meltdown' and 'rapey.'

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 13-Dec-14 12:37:37

I don't think it really matters, I might read the thread or not <shrugs shoulders> but I don't get worked up about how another poster chooses to compose their thread.

Life is too short. fwink

ithoughtofitfirst Sat 13-Dec-14 12:43:49

Meltdown makes me think of that witch. From that film. Melting and shit.

NoelleHawthorne Sat 13-Dec-14 18:09:16
