I am mystified?

They are doing a weekly column called This Week on Mumsnet which lifts posts on interesting isshoes and reprints them in a column.

Some people think this is not good and they should ask and nobody signed up for their personal lives to appear in the Daily Mail.

Others think that's what you get for telling of your personal lives on an internet forum.

Others are APPALLED at a) sloppy journalism and state of the nation b) the Daily Mail just because, c) the fact they get the names wrong.

I think that's it.

They have spelling mistakes (that can't possibly be typos) in EVERY article.

Unless anyone has their real name and address on here does it matter?

<<wonders if i should climb into a large oven glove>>

Sorry if i cause anyone to spit more nails, but i really don't get why you are bothered.

I mean, if you don't wanna read it, don't read it.

And it's not like anyone can identify you, unless you're called "TallThinGinger32ParkRdDerby"

And hundreds of mums read our posts every day, so why not a few more.

And men aren't gonna read it, they don't give a s#it about girly stuff.

<<takes cover with hose on standby>>

scottishmummy Sat 15-Aug-09 22:51:41

kitty if you mean to say shit,say it,not s#it
we are adults and can tolerate shit

kittymax Sat 15-Aug-09 23:12:15

Sorry, ds2 has asd and ever since we told him swear words are bad and only for adults he has started freaking out if he hears or sees one. We've had to tone down the swearing and in our house that's really hard! Guess I got carried away.
But you know, there are people who don't like shit, and some people really can't take much more shit.

Mummywhereisyourwillie Sat 15-Aug-09 23:18:02

ADifferentMe - you must be Shiney then? If so, sorry, you'll have to change again now grin. You won't recognise me, I'm a namechange too.

scottishmummy Sat 15-Aug-09 23:19:12

ADifferentMe Sun 16-Aug-09 08:50:00

Mummy, no I'm not Shiney!
