to think some people on netmums should be polite?

I've only posted once so no doubt I'll be accused of being a troll out to cause trouble. I've been reading a lot of the threads and quite often people are outrageously rude to each other. Now if you don't agree what is wrong with saying in a polite way? Fairly often, very nasty name cally ensues. Do these people talk to each other like this in real life? Sorry but I do find it shocking. It's a shame when a post which could lead to a very good debate ends up with people swearing at each other.

PS, I'm nice too and don't think I've ever told anyone to fuck off.

Well you all seem to know each other, just I wouldnt speak that way face to face and its seems a bit off putting to newbies, and now Im hoping someone doesnt tell me to f off then

I always thought you were a bitch, shiney. You and your haikus. Pretentious as well.

Because the thread was about talking properly and I admitted to dropping h's and t's. Next thing I was being attacked by 5 different people, who in real life wouldn't have said a word. I'm fuming over it again now!!!

whoisasking I wasn't talking about any particular thread

Quite agree. It is Netmums' accepted role in life to be soft and fluffy. If they fall down on the job- you go and tell them!

Meanwhile we will stick to our role which is to tell it like it is.

Thanks junglist, that makes sense I was v confused, had images of someone having some sort of speaking computer!

I actually do swear too much in real life. It's dreadful actually, and something I keep trying to stop doing, it's actually harder to kick than the old cigs.

mrsruffallo Wed 17-Jun-09 12:37:20

Junglist, I've got a Cockney accent too and have had a few on here about it.
Link me to that thread!!

EccentricaGallumbits Wed 17-Jun-09 12:37:54

EccentricaGallumbits Wed 17-Jun-09 12:38:39

Danielle on netmums is legendary....... You think it's nasty here? She comes on a netmums thread and it gets REALLY nasty!!

junglist1 Wed 17-Jun-09 12:42:36

I'm so sorry I can't link I can just about switch it on!! The gist of it was that I sound thick and uneducated and when I said I was doing a degree I was told unis have dumbed down. Then I started picking on people who were blasting me telling them about punctuation etc! And I called someone a name. I was livid! grin

junglist1 Wed 17-Jun-09 12:44:48

Oh and I'll look out for any similar threads in future so we can team up, my fellow cockney sparra!

whoisasking Wed 17-Jun-09 12:45:27

I have a REALLY "common" Sarf East London accent. Why should I change the way I speak? It's a regional accent.

Grrrr, you're making me cross now junglist wink

mistlethrush Wed 17-Jun-09 12:45:56

Shiney - who said I needed permission to leave!!! shock Anyway, I haven't left, I'm just visiting some other locations too... grin

mrsruffallo Wed 17-Jun-09 12:48:57

You are quite right, whoisasking it is a regional accent but one that seems fair game to take the pee out of.

junglist1 Wed 17-Jun-09 12:50:42

How dare you be from Sarf? I'm from Norf Tottenham sides luv so don't test me or I'll rip you to shreds on here and I will WILL smile sweetly if I ever meet you for real OK!!??
