I previously wrote two messages on here ill put them below so you can see, they match with each other so i dont know why people have started calling me a troll. Its quite upset me really because i wrote my second post hoping to get some advice & a woman has come onto both of them with a link to each of my posts calling me a troll? i dont see what the need for this was surely if i was a troll i would right somthing funny or weird and not two threads on the same subject?

my first post

I am a student & have only been working for two months. I do not mind tax for nhs ect but when its going to people who sit on their ass all day its totally unacceptable. I do not mind mothers who do not work or people who canr work but when people just sit there all day abusing drugs & alcohol it gets me really annoyed. Does anybody else find it unaceptable that people are allowed to do nothing all day and get paid for it?

my 2nd post

I met my DP when i was 15 and he was 18 nearly 19. He was not working but at the time this did not bother me. For months i have been asking him to get a job and his excuse is "there are no jobs about" but i know this is not the case as i have had 4 jobs since leaving school last year. His mothor does not help the situation by saying that hes trying his best when i know for a fact that he has no interest whatsoever.

His latest excuse for not trying is the recession ... i feel horrible moaning about him not working but its really bothering me especially since i have just started getting taxed

is there any way i can try to make him more enthusiastic about getting a job?


from these two posts would you think i was a troll?

i am really annoyed that this woman has done this how petty really and how rude

The problem may have been with your first post, argow. Its how you word things on here that counts. It really wasn't the best way of introducing yourself. I can understand your second post - maybe you should have combined the two and directed it at your partner? Don't ostrocise yourself by starting a thread about a thread though.
Keep posting and join in with discussions. Plenty of new people have been called a troll - there have been some nasty cases on here recently so we're all a bit wary, thats all.

See now a message like that is nice lol and yeah i know once i read through the first one i thought i should of combined them really but even so to come onto my thread and have a hyperlink to my other thread...thats just trying to make me look stupid

shouldnt of really posted a thread about a thread but there really was no need for it

thanks for replying

I've looked stupid on here plenty of times, but now I'm a hardened old bint. You just have to roll with it.

is there anyway posts can be deleted?

Yes, you have to get in touch with mumsnet HQ and ask them to delete it for you. Have a look under "member help" or "contact us". I've done it a few times - don't worry!
