Right that's it for Twiglett. I'm not having fun any more, there is little of interest and I'm getting wound up by things I'm not sure I really care up so it's time for me to bid a fond adieu

Lots of less than gruntled people on MN at the moment.
I can see their point.

mazzystartled Sat 25-Oct-08 11:16:27

Shall we all call it a day then?
Suggest mnhq shut down?
I think it is extremely RUDE of people to flounce with "its all too big and too boring"
Sorry Twiglett, I am surprised at you

If you're offski, why not just stop posting?

lilymolly Sat 25-Oct-08 11:17:53

agree mazzy
why all the fuss
just go

Tommy Sat 25-Oct-08 11:19:23

I know what you mean Twiglett but I need to find something else to do instead of being drawn back here al the time hmm

Lauriefairycake Sat 25-Oct-08 11:20:09

but that's why we have flouncer's corner, so people can have a little bitch moan

lilymolly Sat 25-Oct-08 11:22:05

ok fair point

I guess my point of view would be........I would never think myself as important enough that anyone would give a crap about me flouncing therefore would never dream of annoucing it iyswim?

mazzystartled Sat 25-Oct-08 11:24:22

Actually, technically wink I think leaving/deciding not to post anymore doesn't really constitute "flouncing" . To me "flouncing" has to be when you have had a bust up or someone has mortally offended you, and you have to make a stand.

And it's rude to tell a group of people who you have probably been having conversations with on a daily basis that they are "boring".

mn is imploding, along with the economy sad

Lauriefairycake Sat 25-Oct-08 11:30:30

Actually, technically wink - she didn't even use the word 'boring' - she said 'little of interest' - that may have been topics

stitch Sat 25-Oct-08 11:31:28

i need to do this too

mazzystartled Sat 25-Oct-08 11:32:47

think its just part of the natural life-cycle of an internet forum
starts small and hardcore, gathers momentum, initial members bugger off, new members join, takes on new character

its evolution

its probably very healthy

squatchette Sat 25-Oct-08 11:35:19

Yes but on the otherhand Twiglett could be even ruder and not say goodbye to people she has been having conversations with everyday (even if she does find some of them boring/of little interest).

berolina Sat 25-Oct-08 11:35:29

Blimmin'eck. Will the exodus never stop?

I and the rest of MN shall miss you, Twig. Enjoy RL.

berolina Sat 25-Oct-08 11:36:24

<parting pedantry shot>

...not sure I really care ABOUT.


and too tbh.

arfishy Sat 25-Oct-08 11:38:31

But twig, you're just making it worse. Each time a member leaves it Mumsnet gets more Bountified. Stay and be the voice of reason.

ledodgy Sat 25-Oct-08 11:43:54

Twig I can totally understand why you're going I'm teetering on the edge myself atm. I will miss you.

twinsetandpearls Sat 25-Oct-08 11:46:40

Twig has been here for years if she i leaving, and I hope he doesn't, she is entitled to announce it. I will be announcing my departure.

hifi Sat 25-Oct-08 11:57:36

unfortunately or not mums net is evolving, there will be casualties along the way.

darkpunk Sat 25-Oct-08 11:59:22
