I’m from a place in the UK where it’s common to put x at the end of a text, card etc

But even I find it really cringey when a poster puts an x at the end of their post .., I’m seeing it more and more on here.

I occasionally do that completely by accident blush Not much I can do because there's no edit facility!

Yup. And the "oh my love" or "we are here for you" "we aren't going anywhere" shit.

I mean seriously. Makes me cringe every time.

Totally agree that and 'holding your hand' hmm

Why do you think you feel that way OP? x

Klobuchar Sat 24-Feb-18 20:50:04

I’ve done it. Some of the posts I’ve replied to, the OP is in some considerable pain and I guess that’s just my useless way of adding sympathy and to let the OP know I am thinking about them.

Had I known it would be so annoying to others on here, I would have done it more

To be fair sometimes when you’re texting and MN it can get confusing, I put ‘x’ at the end of most of my texts and I do sometimes do it at the end on my MN posts, luckily so far I’ve noticed before I hit post. I’m sure the day will come when I don’t though grin

sonjadog Sat 24-Feb-18 20:51:07

Why does it upset you so much? x

LouseHouse Sat 24-Feb-18 20:51:08

I think it's mostly by accident.
And you're a bit mardy OP.

That’s terrible. Here’s a xxxx to make it better.

GreatDuckCookery Sat 24-Feb-18 20:53:01

I've got to say it's a bit odd to put a x on the end of a post on a forum.

MermaidTailUnicornHorn Sat 24-Feb-18 20:54:40

Just comes across as immature and uneducated.
