Everyone is 'furious' and 'livid' and 'disgusted'. It's quite alarming. If we aren't very careful there will be an adjective arms race. Soon 'furious' won't be enough any more. The mildest word that will have any meaning be 'incandescent'. And then we will move on to threats of violence and mutually assured destruction.

Please please for the safety of all user and the sanity of the few may we tone down the anger. For 'livid' please substitute 'a little annoyed'. For 'furious' how about 'mildly miffed'?

Who's with me? All those in favour say 'aye'. Gently and don't forget to say please.

it makes me a little cross when people demonstrate unrestrained fury on here.

I think it must be very tiring to have such strong feelings about all of these things.

I only get livid about important things, like when the neighbours put their stuff in our bin wink

Narked and ticked are OK.

OrmIrian Thu 16-Jul-09 16:33:47

Rhubarb Thu 16-Jul-09 16:34:09

MoonchildNo6 Thu 16-Jul-09 16:34:27

RedLentil Thu 16-Jul-09 16:34:33

And it's 'fecked off' from the Irish jury ... grin

Please could people also read the whole thread before posting? Or at least try and get the gist of a long thread?

Thank you grin.

LaurieFairyCake Thu 16-Jul-09 16:34:58

Yes, but it's livid on the internet not in real life.

If I can't rant my cock off on here where could I? grin

I am streaked as opposed to livid. Was made to feel irate at a post early hours of this morning when I had just finished my St Tropez application. I sweated, it streaked.

Thus, I am fking streaked. Which means livid, in effect.

Actually I have just thought of an AIBU thread in which I can vent my spleen.

random Thu 16-Jul-09 16:36:06

Is it ok to be slightly pissed off sometimes?

madwomanintheattic Thu 16-Jul-09 16:37:28

just don't roll your eyes...

next thing you know, someone'll offer you 'outside'...


TheCrackFox Thu 16-Jul-09 16:37:40

I am mildly irritated a lot of the time, is that OK?

geRONtius Thu 16-Jul-09 16:40:19

And never start a post with "I know someone's probably already said this but...."

Yes. They already have.

OrmIrian Thu 16-Jul-09 16:40:29

I think that the word 'mildly' could work very well as a prefix to even the most violent of expressions of anger. Mildly furious makes you sound much less unreasonable than simply furious.
