I've seen so many posts recently with kisses on, not just after a post but after every sentence. I hate it.

Also words such as bubba and hubby have been creeping in.

Does it bother anyone else or aibu to want to punch my computer every time I see it?

Yes. You're a miserable fucker.

WellErrr Thu 29-Dec-16 23:10:49

Bothers me too.

This again?

It's the way of the internet.

Join most FB groups and you'll see a whole host of people of different ages, doing exactly the same thing.

It's not going to change so you might as well get used to it.

And does it make your eyes itch to see such posts? I haven't noticed an influx but I don't take MN that seriously, so it doesn't really bother me how people type/talk.

WellErrr Thu 29-Dec-16 23:12:14

Cross post! grin

There's no crime in being polite, is there

WorraLiberty Thu 29-Dec-16 23:13:51

Tbh it used to irk me a little (and yes I realise that's entirely my problem)

But given how many trolls, goady fuckers and nasty bastards there are on the internet, I'd much rather see friendly posts even if they do contain 'xxx' at the end.

I've never had a problem with the use of hubby.

I wish the piss taking over what can be classed as being certain WC culture would stop, if it was any other group having the piss took, MN would be up in arms.

Posters of the NetMums ilk, East.

I think it's a bit shit to come on and slag off Netmums

This thread pops up about once a week at the moment. Yawn.

WellErrr Thu 29-Dec-16 23:16:41


And Birds everyone has the piss taken on here. You can't be WC or middle class enough to have a cleaner.

No one group is singled out. And text speak and tickers really isn't a class thing. It irritates me whoever does it.

EastMidsMummy Thu 29-Dec-16 23:16:45

Why "nethun"? What is it? How do you sa it? I don't get it??

PlaymobilPirate Thu 29-Dec-16 23:17:12

Who made you queen of what people can type on a public forum?

TheGruffaloMother Thu 29-Dec-16 23:17:16

It bothers me slightly (not nearly as much as trolling) but it bothers me everywhere, not just here. All it means is I get to be a grumpy bastard here too.

WellErrr Thu 29-Dec-16 23:17:27

Worra that is actually very true <humbled>

MilkTwoSugarsThanks Thu 29-Dec-16 23:18:43

It bothers me more that people post expecting 100% unwavering agreement hun xx, swear at anyone who doesn't agree then tell them to "fuck off my thread". Or starts a new one complaining that not everyone patted them on the head and said "there, there, of course you're right agreed.

WorraLiberty Thu 29-Dec-16 23:19:20

WellErrr, I know babes wink xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

HelenaWay Thu 29-Dec-16 23:21:34

Pirate, I'm not telling people what they can and can't type on a public forum, I'm just asking if the kissing bothers anyone else.

I can put up with it at the end of the post but some people put kisses after each sentence. I don't like it.

ItShouldHaveBeenJingleJess Thu 29-Dec-16 23:24:40

I couldn't give a shit. If a poster's intention is to be empathetic and supportive, why does their wording matter?

If I'm feeling low, a 'X' or 'hun' doesn't make me bristle - just makes me humbled someone took the time to respond to me. They didn't have to.
