I'm not bothered by swearing in posts, I'm not bothered by swearing in poster's names, but I hate thread titles that talk about wanting to slap, punch other people.

YANBU, I hate this too.

Yep. I was pro the swearing but aforementioned is really rather grim. To be physically violent is beneath most decent people I think.

There seem to be a lot of them today. Quite nasty, imo.

Yes it is nasty the way people talk about other people, I've seen at least four thread titles today.

It just makes violence seen more normal.

I agree with you

Especially when the OP is queried about it and replies along the lines of

"for goodness sake I am only venting . OBVIOUSLY I would not slap anyone. if you can't vent on mumsnet where can you?"

oh yes that's the standard answer Jasper.

I don't even read the threads anymore, but it's horrible thinking that people get so violently angry over sometimes quite minor things.

I thought I was being thin skinned but am glad others feel the same

YANBU!!! I hate this.

(It makes me want to grind the OP to a fine powder and sneeze them all over the forum wink).

belgo Sun 04-Oct-09 18:08:26

Mamight grin at least that is an imaginative way of dealing with it!

I saw a foul Daily Mail headline the other day - something about skin and salt - it just makes me feel sick.

Oooo belgo I read that somewhere too.

Im sure these people do not actually go around slapping and punching people in RL. Does not bother me

FWIW, I started one of those threads, and obviously I wouldn't string the woman up by the toenails, but the pain and trauma she inflicted on her friend is a very emotive thing, and makes me think very, very violent things towards her - which is odd, because I am the least violent person I know
Sorry if it's caused any offence, none was intended
