Every other thread I read has a couple of "un-MN hugs" in it, so surely we should just accept that MN is now a huggy site?(((hugs))) to you all
((hugs))<<pag uses oppertunity to stick tongue in SPBs ear>><<wiggles it>>
Agree. Don't like it either
I hug.So what??someones lost a £20 note / broken their foot / found their cat dead, they need a hug godammit.I think alot of very serious, upsetting stuff has gone in in a few MNs lives and sometimes you don't know what to do or say so a (((hug))) does it for you.Its no crime.
If you don't know what to say you give a don't you?
Theres times that people need a virtual hug, and I have no problem with that. What I would object to is random hugs for no apparent reason
did i mention that pus-y ear infection I have? green and a bit smelly at the moment, but I'm sure it's fine Disenchanted, i agree,, but instead of being un-MN hugs, they should just be, well, hugs!
i think the biscuit might be inapropriate on threads in bevereavment tc ...?to me its like a '4'thing, nothing to say/don't care.
Perhaps we could have a new emoticon to go with the biccy to use instead of hugs because lots of us object to them. Something like a large glass of gin?
do people really object to hugs? cos everyone seems to give & receive them! Embrace your huggy side (unless the hug-ee has a streaming snotty ear infection!)
I'd rather have a nice cup of tea.
why do you object to them?its just a way of showing concern or affection.Some people need to get a grip.Why would someone offering a virtual hug upset you SO much?
was that to me?
I think sometimes it's the hug or the sentiment that people object to but maybe with the association with nutmums and the fluffiness perhaps?
People just make me sick.
I meant not the hug.Doh!
oh dear hullygully, sorrythis was meant to be light hearted - shall i have it deleted as it seems to have upset people
Silly childish associations.Its like rival Highschools 'Ewwww don't wear a red bobble all those at netmums wear red bobbles and you will well get some gross disease, innit'
Stealth! It was a joke ffs. NEVER have things deleted, stand and fall by the sword you lilylivered thing you. Or I'll hug you.
<runs>i'm a polar bear, we're cowardsanyway, gotta go, being pooed onwonder how old DD can be before i have to stop using that excuse?
oh SPB, you're so funny! just feeling the urge to lean over and give you a great big, soppy, squeeeeeeeezy hug
hah! i meant to do [hug] and it made a link! (it's not a link, sorry to disappoint!!)
I read this thread backwards without realising it, which made me think pagwatch deliberately tongued the ear filled with pus. <Shudders>
