I want a serious debate about this.

I started a joke thread, in my own name as usual, about a neighbour stealing a spoon.

It was questioned as "trolling" and I got told off by Rebecca at MNHQ.

Are spoofs and/or jokes no longer allowed?

Since when?

And why?

What do people think about spoofs, jokes and trolls and the difference theereof?

BTW tall and small boys home safely.

Balls, soz about that then Tee, as you were!

I definitely argued with someone about it though and the point is that the fact that I thought they were a twat at that moment doesn't mean I think they are a twat every moment. I've also illustrated perfectly (if accidentally) just how easily grudge bearing could go wrong!

They have eBooks GO.

We did spat about something Randall just not that!

Trills I'd worry if you didn't give me shit about my beloved Kindle.

vanitas, there seem to be a lot of people on that aibu thread who don't like aibu much grin

My library apparently does ebooks for free. I must investigate. And I hope that their ebook catalogue is better than their real book one, as I appear to have read most of the books in my library (rural Irish libraries are shit, apart from the children's sections which are great).

AIBU will be very quiet soon. After pretty much every word and phrase has been outlawed

I have a perfectly serious thread on the go in AIBU. it has not taken many posts for it to descend into feckless benefit scroungers. sigh. but there are also some lovely posters there. just a couple of loons.

RandallPinkFloyd Thu 28-Mar-13 15:31:56

Ah, well soz for the spatting anyway! Clearly I have been multiple spatting blush

LaQueen - you were allowed nights out shock

Nope, not the same one. Yours was obviously only an amateur grin

Could be worse, they could have moved it from Sunday to Saturday because the weather was so lovely.

Madame I've just found your thread. I'm about 2 minutes into it and seriously depressed. Please tell me it gets better, I don't think I have the will to see it to the end otherwise.

I saw the title of your thread madame.

That was enough. I guessed the rest. Looks like I guessed correctly.

TantrumsAndBalloons Thu 28-Mar-13 15:46:01

Surely PO children don't bicker or hit do they?

Is that allowed?

You know what Randall? I think that was me. Vague memories are surfacing about driving and snow and...something...
