Yes I think YABU. Why don't you like them?

Can you draw a diagram to illustrate the problem?

Highalert Fri 19-May-17 14:50:06

Because most of them are not necessary and too try hard. Then the thread fills up with 'great diagram' posts.

grin at Wecks.

I can only grasp this if you can provide a Venn diagram please OP.

TheStoic Fri 19-May-17 14:54:25

Most of them tend to say in the title that there's a diagram, though. Then you know that thread's not for you.

I love a diagram!

They really help with the parking threads though, you really need a visual aid for those.

Sometimes they are useful, but yes I agree that some diagrams are definitely a waste of space.

Yab soooo unreasonable. Also miserable. I enjoy the diagrams keep em coming.

Nooooo I specifically open a thread with a diagram just to look at it!

Sad I am. With no life.

YABU - can't beat a good diagram.

WanderingTrolley1 Fri 19-May-17 15:33:18

I like them.

I really like a diagram of a cafe.
This is what Mumsnet has done to me grin

No they're totally stupid. Especially so with all the subsequent posts asking for a bloody diagram if one isn't provided. Some people just get completely over invested.

YABU they are a necessity on parking threads.

They are very useful for parking posts. How else would we know how terrible it was that car A is parked 3 feet over the dropped curb which is perpendicular to the neighbour's drive but on a higher level than OP's house but the bollards are on an angle and the front garden is 2 feet at one end at 5 at the apex, with car B overlapping the path slightly and C rocking gently on it's roof.

I love a good diagram grin

I especially like the ones with colour keys and small pictures of angry/sad stick people.

I don't care if that makes me shallow either blush

I automatically presume that reality has been modified to prove the OP isn't being U, so they're quite helpful for that...

Highalert Fri 19-May-17 15:44:51

I don't like the parking threads either grin
