to think that hugs are now MN-ey

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

Agree. Don't like it either

Disenchanted3 Wed 11-Nov-09 14:35:54

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 biscuit 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?

StealthPolarBear Wed 11-Nov-09 14:41:32

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.

Disenchanted3 Wed 11-Nov-09 14:42:41

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? hmm

StealthPolarBear Wed 11-Nov-09 14:43:45

was that to me?

Seededbiatch Wed 11-Nov-09 14:44:08

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?

Hullygully Wed 11-Nov-09 14:44:56

People just make me sick.

Seededbiatch Wed 11-Nov-09 14:45:00

I meant not the hug.


StealthPolarBear Wed 11-Nov-09 14:46:19

oh dear hullygully, sorry
this was meant to be light hearted - shall i have it deleted as it seems to have upset people

Disenchanted3 Wed 11-Nov-09 14:47:44

Silly childish associations.

Its like rival Highschools hmm

'Ewwww don't wear a red bobble all those at netmums wear red bobbles and you will well get some gross disease, innit'


Hullygully Wed 11-Nov-09 14:47:47

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.

StealthPolarBear Wed 11-Nov-09 14:49:11

i'm a polar bear, we're cowards
anyway, gotta go, being pooed on
wonder how old DD can be before i have to stop using that excuse?

nickelbabe Wed 11-Nov-09 14:51:22

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>
