5. When you click on it and there 100+ posts between 2 or 3 posters that you've never heard of or never seen on any other threads and you think you've stumbled into someones private conversation by accident

6. If someone has already compared something to Nazi Germany.

7. If it's about telling children the truth about Santa (unless you just cut and paste in the whole of the previous year's thread to save time)

LadyofWaffle -it will be the first of many, believe me. I get about a bit wink

RE:my earlier post can I add:
5(a) the conversation is usually about prams/buggies

When a post is resurrected 10 months later and someone responds to the OP's question as to what to do about their child's temperature.

Those AIBUs where they dripfeed the information so 4000 posts later you agree that it was OK to kick their FIL in the crotch after the crucial detail that he's taken his penis out at Christnas lunch emerges circa post 3999...

[[ you know its pointless joining in ]]

tiredemma Sat 27-Sep-08 11:36:28

When you open a thread and every post resembles

"Oh good morning to you xxx and xxx nice to see you again how is the dog today?
xxx You havnt been on the thread for a few days oh and xxx of course i got your email im replying now! So what shall we chat about this morning?"

And your just standing there feeling like you've just joined high school in he mddle of the year and dont have a clue who to soeak to blush
