Can we be allowed to post 'oh do fuck off' in certain circumstances. Like when people post 'is that really all you have to worry about?'

Could we not have one each. Like a waiver.

ODFOD and IDGASS yes to both

Someone called me 'love' in a delightfully patronising way on a thread yesterday - the whole hmm response just doesn't cut it, whereas I was certainly saying ODFOD mentally - and now I have the perfect acronym for those posters

Odfod brew

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Feb-13 13:14:50

How about 'ODFO' thanks

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Feb-13 13:16:17

Oh no, hang on, I am not a sweary type. Could I have a non sweary one?

Pascha Mon 11-Feb-13 13:20:57

You could start off OD and end it your own way Sparkling.

ODGA - oh do go away
ODGANDATYHRT - oh do go away now dear and take your HRT
ODFSC -oh do find some compassion
ODA - oh do admit! wink

When I was fairly new to MN (a million usernames ago now) I posted "Oh do fuck off" to a poster who was being a right mouthy horrible caaawwwwww! Then I fled the thread and was to "scared" to go back and face any music or see if I was deleted.

I've grown some since then smile

Loving ODFO - could put that to good use.

(Still disappointed HRWT (haven't read whole thread) never caught on)

'Lo everyone,

We're going to move this to site stuff in a mo, in the spirit of tidiness.

While we're "here", we should say that posting "ODFOD" on a thread is tantamount to telling someone to fuck off, and would be deletable.

We're tempted to hijack this thread into a fascinating discussion on semiotics and textual intention....but we won't smile

Oh do go ahead on Kate S, textual intention sounds fascinating. Do they give you quizzes before you are allowed the big red button?

YouBrokeMySmoulder Mon 11-Feb-13 16:48:15

But what about my shiny shit HQ? Is that to be disallowed as well?

KatieMiddleton Mon 11-Feb-13 16:52:51

I may just post random letters on a thread without explanation.

Can't be deleted for being illiterate surely?

KatieMiddleton Mon 11-Feb-13 16:53:39


For example

BeerTricksPotter Mon 11-Feb-13 16:54:14

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

Hullygully Mon 11-Feb-13 16:56:22


Oh the hours of fun in the MN court that looms before us

Pagwatch Mon 11-Feb-13 17:02:38

"But what about my shiny shit MNHQ?" is a phrase that will linger in the memory

Pascha Mon 11-Feb-13 17:05:17

semiotics and textual intention?

There's a friday night drunkards mistyping thread if ever I saw one.

Thing is, KateSMumsnet, that sometimes there really is absolutely nothing else to be said other than "Oh do fuck off!". You know, when a poster is being an utter arse. What are we supposed to say to those numpties?

Tumbleweed is usually incredibly vexing it you're an utter arse.

Interestingly, a huge wall of silence often provokes them to move on from utter arsiness into bannable offences.

I think that's where my 'pile of poo with flies round it' emoticon would be just the ticket. 'You are talking poo No swearing. smile

nickelbabe Mon 11-Feb-13 17:16:15

I just had to say "oh do fuck off" to an automated phonecall then.


I want an ODFOD too.

nickelbabe Mon 11-Feb-13 17:16:52

Sparkling - perfect smile

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Feb-13 17:17:49

I have one on my Sky emails nickel. Comes in handy to complainy e-mails to utility companies. grin

Sparklingbrook Mon 11-Feb-13 17:22:38

Friendly smiley poo emoticon smile For when they are just talking a bit of poo.

Absy Mon 11-Feb-13 17:23:25

Please Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease can we do this? And in our personal lives as well?

Pag asked. She's the voice of reason on MN. Sometimes. I mean, she's a bit mardy at the moment but otherwise she's alright.

RustyBear Mon 11-Feb-13 17:26:08

When I tried to type ODFOD, my iPad tried to autocorrect it to Oxford. Maybe we could use that as a non-deletable code....

nickelbabe Mon 11-Feb-13 17:26:39

shhh, Rusty, they'll be onto you!
