Noobylola, please stop resurrecting zombie threads. Could you tell us what you have to say in a fresh thread of your very own please?

AIBU to ask this?

RudeElf Wed 17-Feb-16 16:05:53

Yes yabu. Just PM them. No need for this.

Ginslinger Wed 17-Feb-16 16:06:05

N0 you aren't - I've just lost 20 minutes on a zombie thread.

Cornettoninja Wed 17-Feb-16 16:07:07

I know its against MN rules but I think we should organise a care package of sweets and full sugar pop for noobyola.

Either for their kids or to distract them from trolling over half term.

Tell teacher on them, don't bring it out into the playground. Bad form OP.

BankWadger Wed 17-Feb-16 16:09:44

Hear hear

BankWadger Wed 17-Feb-16 16:10:39

(That was to OP not the po)

I don't get what the deal is with zombie threads? What's the problem? Not being goady I don't get it

RudeElf Wed 17-Feb-16 16:11:56

Ock will you run on with that po shite. What exactly is professionally offended about any of the responses here?

jamhot Wed 17-Feb-16 16:11:59

I have PMed them. I was hoping to get their attention a bit faster. Let's see if either methods work...

I would rather MN locked threads after a certain amount of time.

That way, people can read them and PM the OP if they want to.

Or start a sodding thread of their own.

Resurrecting threads (unless done by the original OP) is such a waste of time.

MrsTerryPratchett Wed 17-Feb-16 16:12:44

I agree with Lilac. There are ways to deal.

TotalConfucius Wed 17-Feb-16 16:13:28

Oh I've just done one too, I mean wasted 15 minutes on a zombie, not resurrected one.
I didn't twig it was zombie till I saw a certain poster referred to and thought 'now hold on here, that name is just NOT around now'.
On that one, the DD whose party it was will be starting secondary soon!

TotalConfucius Wed 17-Feb-16 16:14:20

I tend to just eye roll though, rather than pm people...

RudeElf Wed 17-Feb-16 16:14:39

Right so you PMed them and no response. What made you think they would see a thread that doesnt go straight to their inbox any easier? confused no response means they didnt see it or dont want to respond.

bibbitybobbityyhat Wed 17-Feb-16 16:16:26

Yanbu. And look at the po-faced replies on here! grin

LilacSpunkMonkey Wed 17-Feb-16 16:17:25

Anyone who is prancing round the site resurrecting old threads about a certain topic AND posting on them after reading just the OP without clocking the original date is very unlikely to even notice this thread tbh.

RudeElf Wed 17-Feb-16 16:17:31

You too bibbity, whats professionally offended about any of the replies here?

bibbitybobbityyhat Wed 17-Feb-16 16:17:41

"I know its against MN rules but I think we should organise a care package of sweets and full sugar pop for noobyola."

Ha haa!

Because this is obviously one of them there dreaded lighthearted threads, it is perfectly harmless. Go along with the joke or ignore it, why not?

TooOldForGlitter Wed 17-Feb-16 16:20:13

Am I PO?! Oh my god, that's the first time ever i've been called that. Oh please let that have been aimed at me, pretty please! <crosses fingers>

RudeElf Wed 17-Feb-16 16:20:15

Is it an in joke between nobbylola and Op? Otherwise i cant see where the joke is.

PrivatePike Wed 17-Feb-16 16:20:18

Someone did this with Sports Direct threads a wee while ago, didn't they? AIBU looked really odd for a bit.
