Grrrr that's it really!

Does the lives of some members revolve around MN or something? Some of us have lives and other things to do other than sit on a PC all day in case we're spoken to on an Internet forum!

so why post a question then dissapear for weeks?

ABU. maybe the answer was Important. was it 42?

hmm calm down, dear.

TBM Tue 09-Jun-09 19:23:03

Oh and it was days later, not straight away.

YANBU, but i suppose people don;t like to feel they are being ignored

often posters will say ' going to do school run/ go shopping/drink gin until i pass out, so won't reply until later/tomorrow/ when my hanogver has worn off'

manners cuts both ways i think

hope your house move went well

I didn't post a question, someone else did and I didn't know I was going to move house before I got back on.

what was your thread about? can you link so we can judge help

IDidntRaiseAThief Tue 09-Jun-09 19:24:50

i have no idea what the question was, maybe someone thought is was important and wondered why/where you were?

burningupinspeed Tue 09-Jun-09 19:24:54

Actually we need a link to decide if YABU.

Oops blush post blush

Erm, not sure if YABU or not,

It depends on the thread and question. But it is definitely not worth you getting angry about.

Perhaps it would be simpler to reply now and just say you haven't had access to the net. Problem solved.

Totally unreasonable to expect to have a real life grin

I moved house!

I wasn't given advice, it wasn't an advice thread I think I was supposed to have answered some point made to the general. It wasn't even the poster that said it.

I'm not angry really, just shocked at coming back to find out I should've been here.

link if you;re gonna complain

Unicornvomit Tue 09-Jun-09 19:28:02

it;s nice to be missed though<<digs hard to find a positive slant>>

burningupinspeed Tue 09-Jun-09 19:28:22

Clearly your priorities are all wrong, why were you not at an internet cafe at least once a day?

Sycamoretreeisvile Tue 09-Jun-09 19:28:54

<<taps fingers>>

Linkage required before thread can progress. All in favour say Aye!

TBM Tue 09-Jun-09 19:29:08

It's not a topic I want to go back over, I was glad to have a reason to not be on it. It wasn't a personal thread and not one that needs resurrecting.

burningupinspeed Tue 09-Jun-09 19:29:11

link link link link link
As you can see, I have a life hmm

burningupinspeed Tue 09-Jun-09 19:29:36

Oh ok

OrmIrian Tue 09-Jun-09 19:29:49

" I didn't know I was going to move house before I got back on."

Wow! I wish I could move so quickly grin A house move never sneaks up on me.

Sycamoretreeisvile Tue 09-Jun-09 19:29:59

A phooey, you're no fun OP. grin
