Netmums : let your fists do the talking

I'm suggesting an open air open combat get together with Netmutmums, sparked by a thread about a perfectly good pushchair sold by a fine upstanding mn to a low and abbhorant nm. If this doesn't mean war, what does? Locations, costumes and rules welcome..

have you not seen the fights?

They come over here, we go over there, there is much bitching and swopping of insults and then it all dies down again.

Usually starts when we do a thread taking the piss out of tickers.

Was "netmutmums" a Freudian typo or is this a common term of endearment which has hitherto escaped my notice? grin

foxythesnowfox Tue 24-Jun-08 21:06:44

ah, but those threads on tickers are priceless grin

and someone who uses both (or at least claims to) will have a good old flounce.

There will be loads shouting 'leave it, they ain't worf it'

It's great - can sometimes spin out to a week;s worth of entertainment.

Go on - start one.

whats a ticker?

CoteDAzur Tue 24-Jun-08 21:16:39

It's those bright-colored, flashing little calendars at the end of each post that go:

2 years 3 months 1 week 3 days since I last had a meaningful thought

2 minutes 1 second since I last called a stranger 'hun'

That kind of thing grin

TheArmadillo Tue 24-Jun-08 21:18:23

this is the classic ticker thread

tickers

Starting wars with other parenting sites is generally Frowned Upon in these ere parts.

bluewolf Tue 24-Jun-08 21:25:18

I'm not exactly sure about this ticker thing. So if I say I DUN A WANK and use some brackets is that it?
taliac although I am proposing a war I am not actually starting one. but it would be cool

Now, I've never been on NetMums but on that lik it sounds like lots of people are very familiar with the format....

nkf Tue 24-Jun-08 21:28:57

SquiffyHock Tue 24-Jun-08 21:29:10

dont' like tickers, ahve no probs with any other forums apart from bounty - didn't like it. d how rude

but what I wanna know is more on this pushchair - why didn't a MN'etter have it? should we not let the 2 posters sort it out their selves thou?

nkf Tue 24-Jun-08 21:32:00

This is my favourite one.
Thanks for the reminder they exist.

areyouthereMNtismeMargaret Tue 24-Jun-08 21:59:37

I just asked them why they have tickers.

BigBadMouse Tue 24-Jun-08 22:01:06

Oooohhh I'm not going over there - there is one scary woman who gets very territorial over the nappy topic!

IT IS SIX MINUTES 54 SECONDS SINCE I LAST KILLED A THREAD

QuintessentialShadows Tue 24-Jun-08 22:01:34

hmm
They are parents just like us. They like their forum, as we like ours. They like tickers we dont. Why is this so hard to respect and accept?

3kids1cat Tue 24-Jun-08 22:02:37

lol noooo, are they being all understanding about you being such a meanie!

BigBadMouse Tue 24-Jun-08 22:02:58

In fact, some of them don't like tickers bacause it slows everything up.
