Hi! New here so bare with! Netmums has got really anal so I've come to test the waters here. I'm fed up of being called a bully or uneducated ( I'm not) for having an opinion that other precious posters don't agree with. The am I pregnant threads. No your fucking not! The will he ever take me back after I've shagged 4 of his mates? No he won't! The mods who delete threads or ban peeps for telling the truth. The majority of posters banned , I shit you not, we're Brexit voters! So here I am. Think it may take a couple of goes to figure everything out. I've looked and there's some pretty interesting threads on here. Nice to meet you all.

Welcome. Hun.

Hi there,

I made the same jump earlier in the week. Should I do xxx against all medical advice? Of course you should, Mummy knows best!!

Crunchymum Thu 25-Aug-16 20:09:09

Hold on, hold on. The majority of posters banned from NetMums were pro-Brexit?

Unless you're 12, YABU for using the word 'peeps'.

There's plenty of 'am I pregnant' posts here, kind of goes hand in hand with parenting IMO.

I've just come over and started a thread like this. Looks like loads of people are making the jump over to mumsnet now haha!

Netmums has got ridiculous, but heard good things about mumsnet. Good luck and hiya X

pottersbabe Thu 25-Aug-16 20:22:05

Yes crunchymum, Brexit voters. We had a few threads going as no doubt you did here. Lots of opinions flying about. We were bad mums for voting to leave, uneducated, blah blah. A few that shouted the loudest so to speak were banned. The posters who banged on about we are taking your jobs. Still there. Vile .

pottersbabe Thu 25-Aug-16 20:23:19

Hiya queenc , thanks for the welcome

OhNoNotMyBaby Thu 25-Aug-16 20:23:48

I will get flamed for this, but IMHO you do need some lessons in grammar. I'm not saying you're (take note) uneducated but you don't know the English language very well. .

You say 'bare with'... bare = take off all your clothes. 'bear with' = stick with me on this one.

You also say " No your fucking not...". 'Your' is possessive, ie it's (it is) either mine or it is yours. 'Your' in this case should be 'you're'... the apostrophe denotes a missing letter, ie ' you are = you're'.

I know you will hate me for this, I expect my post will be deleted. I mean you no disrespect, but as an English language teacher I do feel you should be a bit more informed about what you post.

I think you might be disappointed if you think it's a hugely pro-Brexit site. There are plenty of people from each side, like anywhere else.

RebelRogue Thu 25-Aug-16 20:28:58

Ohno when I joined I was warned against correcting people's grammar. I thought I just have to put up with it. Now I just let my eye twitch at will and ignore gringrin

Hissy Thu 25-Aug-16 20:29:22

It's not too late to go back to nethuns, you won't like it here either.

OhNoNotMyBaby Thu 25-Aug-16 20:34:08

Rebel and OP
ignore me. I'm just in a shit mood.

But when your career is based upon English language and when you get paid for helping people to communicate more effectively, it makes me FUCKING MAD when people belittle you for your knowledge and expertise.

OhNoNotMyBaby Thu 25-Aug-16 20:35:53

Not that anyone on here has belittled me... I'm just expecting it. sad angry

HuckleberryQuinn Thu 25-Aug-16 20:36:55

I wonder what the posters who were banned, actually wrote?

The massively OTT moderation of NMs, which often seems bizarre, is rather annoying , but I really can't see that posters are being banned purely for voting for Brexit.

If anything I found that certain posters who were obsessed with leaving the EU (and were forever bleating how wondrous UKIP were) very rarely got posts deleted, even when their views were rather vile.

First time posting and you decide to introduce yourself in AIBU? You must have some sort of death wish or a skin like a rhino. Was there absolutely nowhere else on MN which made you think "Ooh I could join in there, they seem nice".

I'd go for a quick name change and cautiously sticking your tow into a nice calm thread in Chat - possibly one about biscuits or cake.

PerspicaciaTick Thu 25-Aug-16 20:43:13

Arghhh - bloody autocorrect. TOE. TOE. TOE.

queenc81 Thu 25-Aug-16 20:47:16

I don't think the op knows what AIBU is.
I'm new and so is she and I don't have a clue what it means?

pottersbabe Thu 25-Aug-16 20:47:17

Yep thick skinned, yep crap at gramma and spelling. Like I said don't know how to use this site so here I am.
Don't really do any baking so biscuits and cakes don't interest me , but thanks for the tip. Not into knitting either.

PerspicaciaTick Thu 25-Aug-16 20:49:09

But...AIBU is a bear pit. Please, please look at the rest of MN if you want to see our best bits.

RebelRogue Thu 25-Aug-16 20:52:42

Ohno on the other side of the coin I volunteer at a school and corrected the teacher's spelling,in a very tactful way I hope. I'm still not sure who was more mortified, me or her.

pottersbabe Thu 25-Aug-16 20:53:17

Where should I go that has nothing to do with baking smile

PerspicaciaTick Thu 25-Aug-16 20:54:03

AIBU means Am I Being Unreasonable. And the answer will almost always be a very loud YABU (You Are Being Unreasonable) - some people have to work quite hard to find a reason why YABU, but they will put the effort in.
