Tiptoes quietly into the corner...

HAHAHAHA ONLY JOKING!!
TA-DA!!!! I'M FINALLY HERE after much moaning on Twitter and a lost application, Mumsnet have fast-tracked my application and I'm now officially a "Mumsnet Blogger". What have I let myself in for??
Some of you may already know me, in which case "Hi" - make yourselves known.
Some of you may never have heard of me, in which case "Hi" - where the frig have you been for the past two years?
Some of you may know me from a previous life where I had a different username, in which case "Hi" - and sssshhhh we don't talk about that any more.
Some of you may know me in real life, in which case "Hi" - isn't it time you rang me and we arranged a coffee date?
Some of you have probably clicked off by now and though "weirdo", in which case "Bye".
I have been described as Tigger, Quirky and The Queen of Rants. I blog at Typecast

Specific poster has now PM'd me with snide comments/to start a ruck/not sure what possible motivation actually. I will be reporting to MN, obviously.
FWIW I didn't say anything particularly bad about any poster, just pointed out that accusing MN posters of saying mean things is a touch hypocritical if you're going to do the same all over the interweb.

Wow - only just joined Mumsnet today and having just read these comments, I might leave it today too! I was just searching the site to see what was available, I have 3 teenage children and would have liked to discuss some of the issues associated with them but never mind - poor you Typecast!!!
nenevomito · 04/08/2011 15:53
Bit of a strange thread to find yourself on Roddom, but don't judge a whole forum from one thread.
I'd check out Teenagers for what you're looking for.

Oh Pleb, what a shame. Horrible week for you.
And Sue, yes, it's a shame you have been deleted. I can't see how your post could reasonably be interpreted as contravening the guidelines, unless the mere mention of another poster counts as a personal attack now?
A certain person who I'm apparently unable to make reference to without risking deletion certainly seems to be watching this thread like a hawk for any passing mild reference to the hypocrisy and/or rudeness that she may or may not be guilty of
Your comment was in no way aggressive or nasty, any more than mine was earlier up. Quite surprised that MN has deleted it, tbh.
Ah well. Off to get on with my afternoon. One day perhaps this thread will finally fall off the "I'm on" active list...

SueP - I saw your deleted comment on my phone while out earlier, and was very surprised to log on now to find it's been deleted. I suppose it was slightly provocative in that the poster named was perhaps likely to take offence ... Or perhaps MN felt that they couldn't rely on what you said re posting elsewhere as fact ... But I am disappointed it was deleted and disappointed the person concerned didn't address it on here.
slugger · 04/08/2011 20:30
Sorry, meant to add - so sorry to hear about the death of your friend's son and your own son's injury, Pleb.
SuePurblybilt · 04/08/2011 20:48
Thank you DM and slugger. Tis all very silly.
I feel I have more to learn about Jim Robinson though, perhaps I should go back to that.

Obviously we are not actually allowed to talk about anyone we wish on our own forum any longer.
How insecure in their own debating abilities some people must be that they need to stifle debate.
pleb I wish you DS good health, and a speedy recovery.
DirtyMartini · 05/08/2011 09:12
We could use semaphore (inspired by Cap'n Nancy's name).

I am using the medium of modern dance. Just dusting my leotard and I'll be right with you.
slugger · 05/08/2011 11:13
Thinking about Sue conveying her message through modern dance, has led me to wonder what the opening post of this thread would look like in modern dance form

Is it too late to offer 'Feather For Feather' for Chicken Shakespeare?

I'm not going to open it either, but will definitely report it!
Looks like one of those twitter spam things
BurpingHerbert · 29/09/2011 10:56
This is very late in the day and I do not wish to re-start any arguments etc but I feel I have to say something.
I joined MN about 3 yrs ago, when my son was dx with an ASD, to look for some support and advice. I only posted a couple of times and looked at threads on a few occasions as I found people on here to be arrogant and, to put it plainly, really quite rude.
I asked for advice on a 4 yr old with an ASD and was met with the same attitude that the OP was on this thread - although not as strong. I did not make a grand entrance, I did not make myself out to be anyone/thing special - just asked for advice.
I didn't come back until last week to ask for advice on autism in girls and I was completely ignored. I thought I would have 1 more look today and came across this thread.
I think there are some very real issues with some people on this site who see it as there own and I am very sorry to have to say this, but as someone who is removed from any loyalties to Mumsnet or any individuals on here the bullying manner and arrogant tone of some of the posts on here is disgusting and MNHQ should take more responsibilty for what they allow to be posted on here.
I am another person who will not be returning to this site - at least not until attitudes change.

OP, its always the same people, Ive been here for a while now and a small group upset so many it's shameful. Lots of us are blunt speaking and still nice
I call them the wolefs.

At the risk of annoying everyone - seriously ladies how old are you? This sounds like playground tit for tat.
I am new to mumsnet (via the blogging network) and have now started to look at other areas of the forms not just blogging. I came upon this thread and read through a few pages so I will admit that I haven't read it all and I don't really know any of you (I hope to get to know you if you are not too peeved at me for this!) but this thread really does not help to welcome new people. If anything it will make people feel like this is a very unfriedly place to be!
I really hope this is one off thread of this kind and not representative of the forum as a whole.
Pleb - I hope you young man is ok and healing well.
