Usually lurk on special needs, but have had a look around tonight. Think I will stay with the nice, friendly lot!

Have done this really badly.
The thread title was:

You can always tell some women are childless by the fact that they....

I usually only look at SN and SEN but have started having a laugh at some of the gifted and talented postings.

I peeped in and got the hell out of there pronto without posting.

SammyK Fri 22-Aug-08 22:56:01

Any thread will do hmm

I think it's much easier to state your opinions on the SN board because other posters tend not to jump on you if they disagree. There is more respect on this board. I find the other boards often descend into catcalling and disrespect very quickly.

<sshhhh> don't mention velcro cows (or caramacs)

There have been a few vicious fights on here, but they're few and far between and helped by being a little bit hidden.

I suspect we all have enough shit going on etc etc.

What a pathetic thread. It is brutal here sometimes (MN, not SN). Some people do have major chips on their shoulders, but really....

And why is it acceptable for the "tres famous on MN" to post some things / start some threads, but not the rest of us?

Me too. I only stick to SN now. Much more cuddly smile and helpful.

And now there's a P&T vs disabled spaces bloodbath discussion going on

Seuss Sun 24-Aug-08 11:33:04

Where's the bloodbath? I like to read but I'm way too scared to post on most of them - the smallest thing can kick off an argument!

lol at Jimjams. I'm actually quite enjoying that thread, although it has turned into 'my child will get abducted at a petrol station' thread (another MN classic).

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Sun 24-Aug-08 13:44:17

I think if someone abducted my children they'd return them pretty quickly

vjg13 Sun 24-Aug-08 14:46:53

I was joking about the stickers to identify cars wrongly using P&C parking spaces !!

expatinscotland Sun 24-Aug-08 16:59:38

oh, yes, JJ. I got accused of being a troll on that thread for my pathological hatred of lazy precious princessess P&C spaces .

i don't have a blue badge now, and man, am i grateful!

that was NOT a fun time in my life.

as for the sneering thread, yeah, um, some people have way too much time on their hands to notice others so much and need one of my nice, big glasses of Get Over Yourself.

or perhaps a day out with one of our kids .

nobody took me up on my suggestion for lobbying for parent and child bus stops outside the supermarket main entrance [cross] grin

jimjamshaslefttheyurt Sun 24-Aug-08 17:01:02

I sniggered when I read it thought TC.
