seems to encourage the dullards to keep flogging a dead horse on threads that have passed their sell by date.

[shrug]
I never look at them.

BettyTurnip Wed 01-Jul-09 13:49:16

Charming. Example?

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 13:52:02

the tv thread seemed to go on forever i suspect it was on the front page.

BettyTurnip Wed 01-Jul-09 13:57:34

wink I'm being a bit touchy about being called a dullard because I've just posted this morning on your children as adults thread (anyway, I've probably killed it as usual so it'll be replaced soon).

Am also touchy as I'm too HOT AND STICKY. Yuk.

nah only dullards start threads on AIBU

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:01:14

no only dullards call people who start threads about dullards are dullards.

bless you betty i am sure you are not a dullard.

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:01:37

i think i got my dullards in a twist there

BettyTurnip Wed 01-Jul-09 14:04:36

grin

muddleduck Wed 01-Jul-09 14:09:28

thread is worth it for the word "dullard".

not used enough IMO.

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:10:39

i know i should introduce it to dd, her fav. insult at the minute is 'stupid head'

mrsruffallo Wed 01-Jul-09 14:11:41

I started the TV thread and am quite surprised it is still going on grin
I may well be a dullard though! <hopeful smile>

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:13:10

the tv thread was fine but there are only so many times folk with 2 diametrically opposed views had state their case before they become dullards.

LovelyDear Wed 01-Jul-09 14:14:31

this is on the links, if you click on the 'most active' tab. and the other on is editorial isn't it, so they keep changing anyway.

mrsruffallo Wed 01-Jul-09 14:14:54

Yes, everyone else on that thread is DULLARD

muddleduck Wed 01-Jul-09 14:15:39

ds2 (age 2) likes shouting "dim" at people. Well its mainly at me really. Maybe I should suggest "dullard" instead hmm

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:16:47

the editorial one is the dullard enabler

chevre Wed 01-Jul-09 14:23:15

the feet one as well. people are taking it so seriously

muddleduck Wed 01-Jul-09 14:28:53

surely we can do better than "dullard enabler"

dullinator?

BettyTurnip Wed 01-Jul-09 14:30:39

That sounds like someone who gets rid of dullards, in the style of Teminator.

muddleduck Wed 01-Jul-09 14:32:40

then that's what we need!

Ask MN to install a dullinator grin

and perhaps a wingeinator to go with it?

posiedullardparker Wed 01-Jul-09 14:36:51

I was on that TV thread!

mrsruffallo Wed 01-Jul-09 14:37:43

That's alright Posie, you were on my side. Us dullards must stick together

BettyTurnip Wed 01-Jul-09 14:38:03

Trollinator?

Chattox Wed 01-Jul-09 14:43:29
