Some ridiculous woman is bemoaning the lack of a lively supportive online parenting forum in the uk here

I'm just looking for an email address for them

MN has definitely been in the guardian before

maybe we should write a multiple sig letter with all our usernames.

I read that this morning and I thought it was fair, because that was for a specific geographic location. "Within two days she received 27 email replies from mothers in her neighbourhood." That wouldn't happen here - well maybe it would if you live in certain parts of London but not otherwise.

MN has had loads of plugs in the broadsheets when it's relevant.

Put mine down if anyone does the multiple letter thing

we need more guardianistas on board tho.

spacedonkey Wed 30-Mar-05 18:56:28

yeah i was a bit irritated by that too, especially as mumsnet has had a bit of coverage from the guardian in the past. Fools.

SenoraPostrophe Wed 30-Mar-05 18:57:20

what about the meetup threads, Jan? there's someone from everywhere. except thetford.

I've been reading the paper much more closely while I've been internet-less, and seem to spend at least 60% of my day feeling incensed by Michael Howard

SenoraPostrophe Wed 30-Mar-05 18:58:46

I burned my copy by accident yesterday. Will probably do my blood pressure good then.

spacedonkey Wed 30-Mar-05 18:59:53

i am rather enjoying hating him, just like I hated thatch in the old days

flashingnose Wed 30-Mar-05 19:01:13

I'm sorry, MN is way better - look at the response to the family travelling the length of the country by train, for example.

spacedonkey Wed 30-Mar-05 19:01:50

I think netmums has a different purpose to that of mumsnet though doesn't it?

JanH Wed 30-Mar-05 19:03:16

But even the meetups are a bit sparse in many places SP (not just Thetford, lol!)Of course MN is great while you're online, and some people have made fantastic friendships through it locally, but it's not a neighbourhood online parenting forum as netmums aims to be.
