So historically this has always been a bad thing, Right?

AIBU to believe that I am not imaging the fact that it feels like this has been happening?

or have we just got goady fuckers playing bingo?

kanye's post was definitely tongue in cheek! How could anyone take that seriously?!

Every now and then Atilla comes along to ransack the place, but sooner or later the Gepids will defeat him.

Okay, so poor uneducated people are fine as long as they know how to hide it. Because you can dress it up any way you want, at the end of the day it's just crashing snobbery and a whole load of superiority complexes isn't it?

Then where was the smiley face? Another another drop in standards. Grin

Don't you know Kanye West never smiles? No need for it....Grin.

I don't mind 'hun' from people I actually know, as a term of endearment. But on the internet it just sounds so patronising, like it's being said with an added head tilt. I wouldn't necessarily connect it with a poor education though.

bittapitta · 03/09/2015 10:03

I disagree that it is snobbery Kanye because as far as I can tell, people who write lol, hub, hun, xxx etc are from all walks of life, educationally and economically. I think perhaps you are making assumptions that not everyone else makes! I just find it irritating to read, it looks immature.

Goshthatsspicy · 03/09/2015 10:04

kayne but poor and uneducated don't go hand in hand do they?

I do take your point though.

CantSee4Looking · 03/09/2015 10:05

Kanye were you on the thread yesterday evening that got zapped?

I've noticed an increase in NNs containing "xx" and the like.

If we are being invaded, let's arm ourselves to the teeth and fight back! I suggest a well-chosen expletive at the end of each and every post.


BathshebaDarkstone · 03/09/2015 10:09

I was on a thread last night, I think a lot of people were getting pissed off with xxx after every post of the OP's. Including me.

BathshebaDarkstone · 03/09/2015 10:10

Sorry I forgot.


KanyeWestPresidentForLife · 03/09/2015 10:11

Was that the one about mothers should stop going out after they have babies?

Bottlecap · 03/09/2015 10:17

I just read a real humdinger of a thread, no 'hun' but plenty of 'x's and absolutely bonkers.

YouTheCat · 03/09/2015 10:19

There was one yesterday with xxx aplenty in her name whose views seemed to come straight out of the 1950s.

If it is an invasion it's a piss poor one.

FattyNinjaOwl · 03/09/2015 10:19

I'm poor.
Does that mean I have to start saying hun? I don't want to! I want to carry on saying fuckwit and bastard and cunt etc.

InimitableJeeves · 03/09/2015 10:19

I've noticed too that people quote " " instead of bolding which annoys me

Why? It's perfectly correct grammar.

BathshebaDarkstone · 03/09/2015 10:20

I think so Kanye.


Am I the only one adding an expletive at the end? Blush

MrHamstar · 03/09/2015 10:20

I can't be doing with all the hun-ing either. That said I thought this tread was about something else entirely when I read the title. Blush

'Hun' makes my eyes bleed and I don't like seeing 'xxx' after every post.

But having said that, there's nothing anyone can do about it. We don't own Mumsnet and it's not against the talk guidelines either.

I've noticed a lot of teens/younger people (especially female) type like that and as they have every right to, we may as well just get used to it.

Mumsnet is for everyone, not just those who type a certain 'acceptable' way.

CantSee4Looking · 03/09/2015 10:29

You might be right worra but there seem to be a hell of a lot of threads with very similar styles and thoughts. Far more than I have ever known before. And a good number of them really do seem to be playing rile the mnner bingo. Yes we have always had some of them in the past, more than we would like to see. But at the moment it does seem to be a whole new level of these kinds of posts.

'Hun' always feels like a veneer of niceness where sometimes there is none. Of course some 'huns' are sweet and lovely people but there seem to be some who round off unpleasant comments with a 'Hun' - nastiness disguised as faux concern.
