Like those where the OP writes hardly anything and expects others to entertain them.

Now you go.

When the op doesn't come back angry

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Wed 28-Dec-16 09:58:11

When the op types 'Discuss' at the end. It really annoys me.

Merrylegs Wed 28-Dec-16 09:58:11

Nicely done op grin
Except you should have said
Discuss.

Snap8TheCat Wed 28-Dec-16 10:00:33

Mine are the replies which don't actually answer the OP. Like 'How tall is your 11year old boy?'

'My 10 year old girl is 135cm'

'Yeah. Great.'

beepbeeprichie Wed 28-Dec-16 10:01:52

The am I pregnant ones. Just pee on a stick and be done with it woman!!

AntiQuitty Wed 28-Dec-16 10:02:03

Haha! Funny OP!

AntiQuitty Wed 28-Dec-16 10:03:08

Well, not like laughing funny, but sort of passing amusement.

SirChenjin Wed 28-Dec-16 10:03:57

The 'Discuss' ones really piss me off. Nope, I won't jump to your command and discuss.

The 'why do so many women not identify as feminists' ones annoy me (if annoy is the right word), with the first couple of pages explaining why people might not identify with what has become a political movement inhabited by women with pretty robust views, and the subsequent eleventy billion pages explaining why anyone who questions is Just Plain Wrong (as well as ill informed and/or ignorant).

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Wed 28-Dec-16 10:04:25

The long ones where the op does use paragraphs.

Bluntness100 Wed 28-Dec-16 10:05:07

Drip feeds....

WhenSheWasBadSheWasHorrid Wed 28-Dec-16 10:05:09

Damn it does should be doesn't

the ones where the op doesn't spell check before posting fblush

echt Wed 28-Dec-16 10:05:30

Questions where you could just Google the answer. Lazy fecking glipes.

echt Wed 28-Dec-16 10:06:48

And, Mumsnet is so bitchy these days.

JanisNedob Wed 28-Dec-16 10:06:49

The 'hilarious' ones written by the baby

pinkieandperkie Wed 28-Dec-16 10:07:00

Don't know why but I hate the what do you think of this name threads.

Middleoftheroad Wed 28-Dec-16 10:07:52

Anything with Brexit, trans, Trump or entitled in. Avoid.....it will end in tears.

witchofzog Wed 28-Dec-16 10:08:20

The "Guess what happenned today" thread with numerous guesses and a banal reply from the op 4 hours later which was NOT worth the hype. I haven't got time to play silly buggers. Just tell us now godammit 😂

iklboodolphRedNoseReindeer Wed 28-Dec-16 10:08:24

The ones where posters don't read the thread.

Ideas for emergency lunch please - DH's family just arrived. I have basics in. NOBODY can eat fish. All deadly allergic.

Next poster: How about a lovely piece of salmon or a fish pie?

lightcola Wed 28-Dec-16 10:08:39

"I'm a long time lurker, so I apologise if I haven't done this right..."

It's a forum; just post it. There is no right or wrong.

StillStayingClassySanDiego Wed 28-Dec-16 10:09:08

Grief threads where the OP is 'devastated' about a celeb dying and feels compelled to start a thread about their unparallelled (sp) non stop crying.

Sparklingbrook Wed 28-Dec-16 10:10:06

The ones started by posters with those 'user12345678' type names.

echt Wed 28-Dec-16 10:10:19

Whatever happened to....MNers of the past.

MN royalty fawnfest.

pictish Wed 28-Dec-16 10:10:40

The ones bitching about dhs prioritising their mothers on Mothers Day because, "I'm a mother too!"
Yes but not his mother. Stop it.

echt Wed 28-Dec-16 10:12:30

The ones moaning about the DH/DD, etc. shorthand used here.

If you can't be doing with it, go elsewhere or type it out in full.
