How unspeakably rude you are. You do not own this place.

I see lots of posts with links to the Daily Mail, so there must be plenty of MNetters who choose to read it.

And it's as OK for them to post their opinions as it is for anyone else.

Yes, it's terrifying. Especially the flagrant, almost boastful racism and disability-hatred.

That's because there are a lot of DM readers on here who love to pretend they loathe it but are avid readers.

It's a good thing we haven't got the red arrow / green arrow system yet

You are not wrong. It is slowly turning into the Daily Mail.

I wonder if the DM commentators are a very specific subset of DM readers with certain views.

How do you know what Daily Mail comments are like if you don't read them? And if you read them, then you want to know what they are saying. So why pretend you object?

Last time I looked a pledge of disdain for the DM was not a requirement of MN membership hmm. I do not much care for the Mail but it is the absolute right of anyone to read what the fuck they like - or would you prefer some kind of dictatorial Kim Jong-Un running Mumsnet?

Last girl:
Indeed. Excellent point.

There are a lot of predictable posts on threads that include dogs, disabilities, smacking and parking.

All of which are coming up very regularly of the last couple of weeks

I blame the foreigners

If there's any foreigners on this thread, I don't mean you.

You're alright, it's the other I'm talking about.

More rudeness. Think you should learn some manners.

MN seems to be exactly like the DM comments section lately. Either that or people post the first thought that pops into their head with no thought or filter.

NeedACleverNN Fri 22-Jul-16 21:01:12

I'll blame the scroungers then Worra

Obviously not the ones on mn, the bad ones

sorenofthejnaii Fri 22-Jul-16 21:03:10

You should see the Independent comment's section. No moderation whatsoever.

Can you lend me 50 quid? I wouldn't ask, but my budgie has an STI.

It's a combination of the AIBU keyboard warriors and the hard of thinking, usual.
