As in when OPs say 'I don't mean to drip feed'?

Sorry if it's a stupid question

They don't tell the whole story in one go.

To not give all the information in one go. To add relevant details later.

When they don't tell you the whole story up front.

It means they failed to write 'War and Peace' in the OP.

for example

POSTER:my husband does fuck all about the house, i have to do everything

<most of MN condemns him>

POSTER: But I love him so much even though he has been bedridden from the nose down for forty years

OP: My bil is a shitbag. He's 28 and acts 18.

MN: he doesn't sound terrible

OP: he has silly hair

MN: nope. Still not getting the hate


For example

OP: my DP wrestled my toddler to the ground stamping on him.
Mumsnet > attack.
OP: toddler was on fire at the time.
