Ive changed my name as im peeved off. I asked for a genuine bit of advice about dd2 school, and i got abuse. Everyone is so unfriendly and jump down ur throat. Its very clicky in here and they all stick togethet. At least on netmums u get a fair hearing and gd advice, its crap here.

People come on here for an ego trip and im sick of it. Have a bit if respect and decency for peoples feelings!!! Grrrrr wish it was properly monitored

Horses for courses. I like the brutal honesty and swearing. If it doesn't suit and NM does, use that. BTW I don't like NM but I don't go on there slagging them off. HTH.

Not everyone likes every site. This one doesn't sound right for you.

Horses for courses. If you prefer netmums just stick with that.

Yes. It's shit here. We are all wankers. Netmums is much better. I never post here.

Can't think why people wouldn't warm to you immediately op hmm

Not everyone likes up front opinions and honesty. You get banned on NetMums for anything except fluffiness. If you don't like it, leave.

Fair hearing?

Its not like that at all of course. You have either been very unlucky or you are on the wind up.

I wouldn't post in AIBU if you're not prepared for the bluntest end of MN.

Sorry you had a bad experience. In the few years I've been here I've seen some unhelpful, unkind comments but the vast majority are great. I didn't see your thread so can't comment on that but I hope things have improved for your son.

You're either one or the other tbh. Nethuns seems sickly sugary bollocks to me and people not as bright on a different level to here. Like breeds like and I like the honest, sometimes acervic adcuse ive had here.
