To think some people just come on here to argue?

I swear some people just come on here to argue and make other parents feel like utter shit! Almost every post on here someone comes onto and finds a way of giving the OP some abuse.

I thought this site was to help each other and give advice. You know a support network.

I could literally write something like 'saw a cute kitty today' or 'had a banging cuppa' I bet someone would cause an argument! I wish some people would just get a grip! Bet it makes them feel really big hiding behind a keyboard!

No, that isn't true.

mymilisbatshit Mon 20-Feb-17 20:19:14

What's not true grumpy? That mumsnet is a support network? Yeh I know!

OnHold Mon 20-Feb-17 20:19:16

No they don't.

Your username is ironic, right ? hmm

WaitrosePigeon Mon 20-Feb-17 20:19:57

Some do, yes.

SumThucker Mon 20-Feb-17 20:20:42

No, I don't agree.

Seems that way to me

Support is here, but AIBU has always been good for a fight....

Part of 'support network' may involve pointing out someone's deludedness or ill-informedness, when they've come on a public forum to ask advice. It's not some hive mind of unthinking kindness. What Mn has traditionally done best is astringent advice.

Oh no they don't!

In all seriousness, there are many threads created here simply through boredom.

WorraLiberty Mon 20-Feb-17 20:22:17

Some do

Some don't

Some see anyone disagreeing with them as 'arguing'.

Lol she really is though! But that's another story. Besides she isn't on here. Honestly some of the stuff I read is just plain nasty. We should be building each other up and helping each other.

Fair enough a difference of a opinion but we could be nicer to each other about it life would be pretty boring if we were all the same but some of the things people say to each other on here is damn right spiteful.

mymilisbatshit Mon 20-Feb-17 20:24:05

Disagreeing defiantly shouldn't be perceived as arguing I totally agree with you there but I think there is ways to put the difference of opinions across.

Post in the right topic and you are generally ok. Don't use AIBU for absolutely everything.

Yes I think some people love to be contrary. I wonder if in real life if their friends moan about something they just constantly find the other point of view - must be bloody annoying for their friends. Also posters are always picking holes in others stories which gets so tedious. I once asked for help with stain removal tips for whiteboard pens and some awful person asked what my child was doing with one and he must have been being naughty! That was a) rude and b) showed a complete ignorance of how much whiteboards are used in primary school - especially on the carpet. What would make someone so rude and unpleasant to charge into a thread like that with no knowledge!

But really I should argue with your thread and say - no no one argues or is cross everywhere it's so super supportive. That would make my point better!

Problem there seems to be there isn't much traffic trough the other topics it does make it hard sometime esp if you're desperate to talk to someone about it on here. I know what you mean though.

Of course your mil is batshit OP. Wouldn't expect anything less.

Chloe84 Mon 20-Feb-17 20:27:41

I could literally write something like 'saw a cute kitty today' or 'had a banging cuppa' I bet someone would cause an argument!

Your use of the word 'literally' is annoying. 'Actually' would have been better.

mymilisbatshit Mon 20-Feb-17 20:27:43

Reup grinconfused LOL! I hope you kept your cool? X

AnyFucker Mon 20-Feb-17 20:27:44

Do you have twins, op

NavyandWhite Mon 20-Feb-17 20:28:41

<stifles laugh>

WaitrosePigeon Mon 20-Feb-17 20:28:49

Ah, seen your other thread about humping.

This is a TAAT and the will be deleted I guess..

OnHold Mon 20-Feb-17 20:29:09

A banging cuppa? Are you 15?

mymilisbatshit Mon 20-Feb-17 20:29:13

Chloe! Haha! Sorry I will try harder! No I don't have twins.
