Please can we have an automated 7 day ban for anyone using a variant of the above phrase?

And possibly an e-mail in which they are given a stern talking to?

except unoyurbubshun or younoyurbubson whatever she's called.

it took me years to work out what she meant.

Goodness, people who post that need putting into the stocks. Do you think MNHQ would allow us to have a tomato smiley? grin

ZombiesAteYourCervix Thu 13-Oct-11 23:11:38

younourbubson? unoyurbuson?

I think we can make exceptions for (good) use of irony.

PoorLittleKid Thu 13-Oct-11 23:12:15

U no? what did you do with your k & w? confused

TheSkiingGardener Thu 13-Oct-11 23:12:31

I have just got who you mean Cervix. I hadn't understood that before!

ChippingIn Thu 13-Oct-11 23:12:41

Just tell them on the thread. I find asking if their keyboard is playing up is a good starting point grin

No, no exceptions. There's no excuse for text speak and netmums language.

I got a right telling off once for having a go at someone for using 'wid' instead of 'with'. It wasn't a typo but deliberate gangsta speech. So can that kind of thing also be included? It upsets me very much.

CauldronsTrulyReign Thu 13-Oct-11 23:13:50

Excellent strategy Chipster.

UnearthlyGhoulBeastie Thu 13-Oct-11 23:15:54

I don't understand. sad

What is a 'bub', and what does knowing a few of them imply?

Booooooyhoo Thu 13-Oct-11 23:16:00


normaleggy Thu 13-Oct-11 23:16:35

Just chillax, babe!

Agree, hang them.

UnearthlyGhoulBeastie Thu 13-Oct-11 23:17:04

Oh dear, I have just read properly. A thooosand apologies [embarrassed]

I'll go and eat worms now...

No problem unearthly. The sight of text speak does funny things.

I've just seen a lot of that sentiment expressed lately and would like to politely suggest that in most cases it is a load of bull.
