to get upset at inappropriate thread titles

396 replies

MrsGoranVisnjic · 22/02/2007 14:01

I've obviously made a huge error of judgement commenting on a thread full of hugely pregnant women and I apologise to them for that (pleading temporary insanity of disgusting icky cold)

however

I do hate seeing thread titles popping up all the time in active conversations (because they're ongoinng chats rather than jokes that fade away) that have sexual innuendo in the title .. just seems so uneccessarily childishly assinine

eg an ante natal thread entitled 'minty sperm or original' .. ach!

They're really pregnant! I'm just glad to see they're keeping their sense of humour.

(I did drop into that thread with a hearty 'wtf' at the title, though. They were helpful and explained.)

Well, I certainly don't get upset by that one.

It does make me wonder a bit though...

I agree with you and I don't like thread titles with full on swearing in them, just incase my dd happens to be reading over my shoulder (which she does do).

bbs, they think gaviscon liquid (I think?) is like sperm. And it comes in minty and original.

I am more bothered by the postnatal thread from October that has a title about weaning. It's entirely not my business, but ... gah ...

I thought they meant using sperm (eurgh!) as a way to bring on labour!

Good job I didn't click on the thread otherwise I'd have been even more confused!!

Ah. OK.

Still slightly flummoxed. But then I don't have much experience of gaviscon. Sperm?

Oh the shame!!

(STill need to minimise my scren when someone comes up behind me though - don't mind them seeing topic headers like "Sparkler's DD..." etc, but sperm is a whole different kettle of fish!!)

I noticed the October one, too. It is going to bother me every time I see it now. I know it is none of my business, but.....
