Women presumably who don't have a certain sense of humour, or don't agree with certain (long standing) posters being described as beige admin workers who nag their ugly husbands, who were friendless at school, wear cheap clothes, have no fun in their sad little joyless lives etc etc Literally paragraphs and paragraphs of nastiness.

This is some of the most vile and misogynistic stuff I have ever read on MN from other women. These kind of comments normally come from trolls and MRA invasions. Is this really what MN has become? Does everyone think that this sort of shit should stand? What happened to the fucking sisterhood?

I am astounded to be quite honest.

Yep - he's fine now, but he's at an age where his peers ask him about his scars and he asks why he has one, but others don't. The good thing is that he can't remember any of it. DH and I are another matter.

I can't wait to see this thread in the Mnhq ' mumsnet talk' email.

It has been like the entire site in microcosm.

Maryz I've never seen you being nasty to anyone ever.

You're an all round good egg and I bet you don't even say shit, fuck or bollocks without making the sign on the cross afterwards grin

Wel this thread will shortly expire. I never expected that it would run so long. There has been some really interesting discussion. I will go away from with the view that this might be the internet, but please remeber there are real human beings out there reading our wafflings. I think some posters forget that. That what you think is funny might be hurtful and upsetting to someone else.

I think everyone would do well to take that message away Porto.

I think the thread has shed a lot of light on a lot of people's thinking, which can only be helpful.
