Yes YABU. AIBU is just Flamers Anonymous differently titled.

Is it from the 'bap' thread per chance? I could be wrong smile

I just don't get this "it's my opinion and I insist on stating it, but if you have an opinion about my opinion you can just keep it to yourself" nonsense.

If you were the person who compared breast feeding women to Frisian cows and to your breasts as your partner's "toys", then you are being VERY unreasonable!

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:05:44

wheredidiputmyfone - Nope, not the "bap" thread (interested to see this though !! grin

seeker - No, that wasn't me either !

southeastastra - Whoa! you have just lost me with your post grin

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:06:15

Thats what I wanna know BALD !!

wheredidiputmyfone Fri 09-Oct-09 19:06:28

I posted it earlier

BoysAreLikeDogs Fri 09-Oct-09 19:07:19

However YABU for starting a thread about a thread. tsk tsk.

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:08:14

TheFallenMadonna - That's exactly it. The particular thread in question was full of people who all agreed with each other, then I come along with a slightly different opinion (not even offensive, just my side of the story so to speak), and all hell broke loose shock

Pardon me for breathing grin

You've gotta love the AIBU board. You could think of the most water tight thread and it would still get picked apart.

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:09:28

Thanks WDIPMF, gonna have a look through that in a sec grin

Sorry BALD sad

wheredidiputmyfone Fri 09-Oct-09 19:09:43

Awww you've got to tell us which one now, else we can't sit in judgement of you grin

itchyandscratchy Fri 09-Oct-09 19:10:08

that's what you get for venturing into AIBU territory... tbh i only go there if I'm feeling hard and belligerant

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:12:39

Well, that didn't last long....preggers wins !! grin

Tell you what does make me roll my eyes.

All the threads lately whining about AIBU. Is there some sort of rule I missed where you have to post/read a board you are not enjoying?

SmokingKnickers0nMahead Fri 09-Oct-09 19:14:16

YABU for starting a thread about a thread but you shouldn't get flamed for having an opinion and stating it. Tell 'em to feck off.

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:15:06

I'm not whining Morloth, just fed up with not being able to voice an opinion without getting absolutely hammered for it.

People seem to think that AIBU gives them the right to have a go at other people, when in fact, it is about giving opinions, not slating each others opinions.

Tortington Fri 09-Oct-09 19:15:17

yabvu - no one is allowed an opinion in aibu

ThoroughlyFedUp Fri 09-Oct-09 19:16:21

Why AIBU for starting a thread about a thread ?? Is that a rule of MN ? Sorry, haven't been a member for long.

Yanbu. Disgraceful wilful misinterpretation of what you actually said + determined offence-taking + lots of silly hysterical ranty shouting going on over there. Yanbu at all.
