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?

But bolding is making something stand out, to get attention. " " is showing it's a quotation, not your words. I usually see them as two different things.

Maybe NMums is fed up with Mnetters invading their board taking the piss out of them?

Notimefortossers · 03/09/2015 23:44

As I said my aim is not to piss people off so when I realised people didn't like it I tried to stop, but it actually is hard for me! My fingers type it naturally and I have to delete them a lot before I post!

When I asked if IWBU I genuinely wanted to know if I was. I wasn't asking to be told I wasn't ;)

And thanks! Always nice to be told you are liked :)

Bambambini i also wondered that. And it would make sense within the context of the threads and the forum differences.

I got fucking 'hunned' by a staff member in Santander today.

I mean really.

Cunt monkeys.

I actually saw AnyFucker end a post with x


I have suspected for a while that she may have been impersonated by Jeff. Her username was on the List...

CassieBearRawr · 04/09/2015 00:08

I saw the AF x too and thought Hmm Grin Poor fucker, trying to be nice and look where it gets her!

KanyeWestPresidentForLife · 04/09/2015 00:13

It is bloody snobbery. I am piss poor and until I finish my degree in 2017 only have GCSEs. However I come from a posher background and like a lot of people who are poor and don't have a great education I can certainly pass for someone who does.

And that's the snobbery really isn't it? You can be poor and badly educated and be accepted as long as you know how to ape your 'betters' and know not to use the language of the council estate or sink school. So people who say 'hun' or 'babby' or say 'tinies need their mammas' are oiks who haven't even got the decency to realise they should be aping the people who look up to them.

I don't know fuck all but the term dream feed has really been getting on my tits. X

Lweji · 04/09/2015 00:21

She's been giving lots of Flowers too Hmm

TheExMotherInLaw · 04/09/2015 00:23

hangs head in shame (then sticks two fingers up when your back's turned)
I've probably been guilty of some of the crimes listed against mumsnet.
It takes a while to learn the setup here, especially when switching from different lists (not t'other'un), especially if the other ones aren't family based discussions - DH, DC, etc would mean zilch in some groups.
I think some of the huns, xxers and huggers have, like me, come on board via Facebook, as that sort of vom-inducing sickly sweetness seems rife there. Cuss at us gently, we'll either fit in soon enough, or push off.
Not me, tho, I like it here - finally somewhere I can cuss a bit without pegi7 bots cutting me off.

FattyNinjaOwl · 04/09/2015 00:24

Grin that made me giggle. It's not snobbery, its expecting people to be able to speak like a growed up big person, I don't use hun, and when people call me hun I get a bit Hmm and I'm currently living on a council estate. Not once have I heard the people here call each other hun or say hubby, bub etc. It's the people I know with money that speak like that. It's fucking awful. (I do use hollybobs, simply to wind up my 6yo who gets really angry and sounds so exasperated telling me "its ho-li-DAY!" )
FattyNinjaOwl · 04/09/2015 00:29

I got flowers off AF today. I deserve them though because I'm just that fucking good

Lweji · 04/09/2015 00:30

Ahem, a quick research shows that, actually, AF uses x at least once a month. You think you know someone...

Lweji · 04/09/2015 00:31

Now I want to get an x from AF.

you deserved those flowers, Fatty

FattyNinjaOwl · 04/09/2015 00:34

Lweji fanx hun x Grin
being all serious, thank you

CantSee4Looking · 04/09/2015 00:40

I remember how Anyfucker got her name old

What I'd really like to know is why its "hun", because when I first came across the term,,, back in the mists of time (20 years or more ago) it was used by American's and was "hon", not pronounced in the Mitford way.

sleepyelectricsheep · 04/09/2015 07:17

I've always used quote marks not bold when quoting so be one on mumsnet. I've been here the best part of a decade now and never even noticed that's a "thing".

Using bold leaves it open to misinterpretation, surely?

Fedupcow · 04/09/2015 07:49

You can't use bold on the app, I know it's down at the moment but I never used MN on PC much until now.

NullaBore · 04/09/2015 07:55

Geeze Saucy you seemingly don't get a little messing around.


Queeltie · 04/09/2015 08:16

No idea how to bold so use quotation marks. Don't give a fuck that this offends some.

Lweji · 04/09/2015 08:33

Lots of threads pushing MN buttons.

Maybe, maybe not.

Or some of us have been her so too long and already know how the thread is going to go.

Whereas newbies don't realise there is a MN way.

Or Jeff has taken over a few accounts. (Realises that my search for AF and x was only for the last month - she could still be Jeff...)

LittleMissIntrovert · 04/09/2015 08:36

I used to be a nethun, and while I don't swear a lot, I don't like being told I can't do something Grin

Ironically it was the mention of the AIBU board on a thread there that made me have a look, and I thought it was fucking great Smile

And I've had my arse given to me on a plate, and I admitted I was wrong!

I personally find Hun really patronizing, it just doesn't seem genuine, partly because I know someone who uses it, and she certainly means it in a patronizing way, though I appreciate not everyone does.
