I found mn a few years ago and think it's blardy fantastic. Mners have given me advice, reassured me, made me (and DH) cry laughing (and even wee a bit!) grin
I don't post often but do lurk quite a bit, but all these "mn is really cliquey" threads are pissing me off. How can the internet be cliquey ffs?!
I love Mn for it's different views, sometimes I agree sometimes I don't but hey that's ok
Anyway that's all I wanted to say, just needed to rant!
And note to newbies we all get ignored, this post will probably be ignored but I won't cry I'll just think you all hate me are busy grin

NintyZelda - you lurk to much- I've never seen you before!

oh, and no, YANBU...they can always go somewhere less cliquey...

I agree. I lurk, post, lurk, post. Have namechanged several times so no-one recognises me and I know who all of the regulars are. I have no wish to be that well known on the net tbh.

Like-minded people always establish groupings. Life.

Ah ha - SO THIS is how you get on, on Mumsnet grin

I dip in and out of things. Some people "know" me more than others. Some ignore me - and I ignore others. Bit like real life really!

Lynette, I named changed about a year ago after I discovered how naff it was to have your DCs name in your profile name (xmummy)blush

I love MN. But sometimes I love it LOADS, then I go off it a bit.

I don't piss and moan about it though. The moaners just need to man up and be strong!

LynetteScavo Wed 27-Aug-08 13:29:34

Yes NintyZelda...'tis very naff!

don't see the point in people moaning about cliquey threads, just don't read or post on those ones.

I think mn is great too, generally there's a good balance of silly threads and serious, helpful ones. There are people who can be quite nasty but I find it easy to ignore them.

MN is a lovely silly agonising angry insulting sometimes-cliquey Pandora's box.
Whingeing a right turn-off. Arguments make me laugh sometimes. I can understand having a row when you're in close proximity and tempers fray....but on the internet??
Some very lovely people on here though and some great advice/sharing, which is what it's all about.

Well said NZ.

stretchmarkqueen Wed 27-Aug-08 13:33:29

I second that!! If you want to be -popular- recognised, then you have to post a lot!

TBH, I have gotten so much from MN, that I am willing to have the odd post or thread ignored. You don't really have to listen to everyone!!


StealthPolarBear Wed 27-Aug-08 13:33:54

I heart MN wink

beansmum Wed 27-Aug-08 13:34:30

it IS cliquey, but does it really matter? My chatty, unimportant threads don't always get replies, but if I have something really bothering me or need advice there is always someone who can help.

(I don't care about my naff name btw!)

scottishmummy Wed 27-Aug-08 13:34:35

bunch of blethering wifeies wi PC's no biggie

stretchmarkqueen Wed 27-Aug-08 13:35:16

mylovelymonster Wed 27-Aug-08 13:35:33

DontlookatmeImshy Wed 27-Aug-08 13:36:23

yanbu as far as the title goes but

"sometimes I agree sometimes I don't but hey that's ok"
if it's ok then yabu to get pissed off about it.
