I'm really struggling to understand why all the Daily Mail readers on this forum, keep complaining about the Daily Mail confused

There are many newspapers I don't like, so I quite simply don't read and help to fund them.

It does make me think twice about posting I must admit.
I think I am anonymous and do namechange fairly regularly but it is still a risk.

I was thinking that to Worra.

Exactly Samcro, it has always been the most popular paper for Mumsnetters to read, so I just don't get the angst.

If you don't like it, don't fund it.

Agree with worra actually I think the people posting about MN being in the Daily Mail are deliberately gaining clicks. I can't stand the daily mail therefore I don't read it, don't click on links relating to it, don't click on shares from it on FB, MN or anywhere else.

And anyone who thinks that MN is an anonymous forum is very naive.

If you're posting identifyable information about yourself on MN you are just as recogniseable here as in the Daily Mail. The fact said information is reproduced elsewhere does not make that more so.

And if you're posting under a username which doesn't link to the rest of your life on here then what's the problem?

I'm watching TWS now, as I do most mornings.

That's something else a lot of Mumsnetters claim to hate, whilst avidly watching it.

I really just don't get it.

Blimey, how long did sardine woman take to get to the point? grin

All she needed to say was, "I wanted my son to eat less bread so I made him a sardine salad and the other kids said it stinks, so he felt too embarrassed to eat it".

That would have made room for another 2 callers grin

I don't read the Daily Mail or watch the Wright Stuff. It still pisses me off that they steal stuff from here so regularly and don't ask permission (presumably) to use the material. And yes it's a public forum but I don't post on here expecting it to be featured in mainstream media. I agree it might stop people from seeking advice from others, especially when so many feel they have nobody to turn to in real life and view this as a 'safe place'. Not any more.

It's incredibly lazy for them to just magpie bits of a forum and present it as news.

I can't work out whether MN actively encourage this or not. It is after all great advertising for the site.

It does put me off posting though.

I don't read the Daily Mail or watch the Wright Stuff fwiw.
