AIBU?

Posters who ask who has time for such a trivial issue?

AIBU to be sick to the back teeth of the invasion of MN by smug, joyless and sanctimonious pricks?

I often see someone post what in days of yore would promise to be an enjoyable and/or lighthearted thread, guaranteed to provide entertainment to many, only for some twat to pipe up with something like "I can't believe you care about this enough to post about it on MN". Now, clearly the aforesaid twat cares just as much as the OP, or else why would they be arsed to post anything themselves? Surely if it's so incredibly trivial they should just close the thread and get back to solving world hunger? Yet they don't, because they're determined to give someone else a kicking, prove how superior they are, and ruin entertaining threads about supermarket shopping and other equally amusing activities.

If you are one of these pricks - pack it in! Angry

Yanbu. They are in the same category as posters who give you a Biscuit

I think some posters post what they do so they appear as witty and hoping for a few giggles. When in fact they look plain rude. Not really welcoming neither for someone who is new to MN. A few posters I have noticed do it quite frequently.

I hate the " Is it school holidays already Hmm "
and attempted troll hunting in a "witty" way.

Is it school holidays already?

^ exactly! Very condescending and rude.

I'm more sick at the invasion of goady fucking PBPs and trolls myself.

Getting better at spotting them though. Hyperbolic OP, new to MN and yet refer to long term posters by their abbreviated nicknames, talk about farting and their kids getting bollocked by the neighbours/school, bad spelling.

Another one I hate is 'It all sounds a bit Jeremy Kyle' to me.

Oh My God I can't believe you started this thread when there are unanswered threads out there. You are so entitled/ selfish/a bully. I mean really what a first world problem, I feel sorry for your DC's.

I think I got top pet hates in there GrinGrinGrin

I'm glad you've said it. I thought it was just me being a pregnant grouch! Read several threads in the past hour where I've wanted to comment saying basically this, but haven't. Bore off with ya bullshit will ya! Feels good to let it out!

Yep 100%.

It is a bit insulting to schoolchildren to ask about the school holiday thing. I don't think it's bored children at all.

"I can't believe you care about this enough to post about it on MN"
I know even if they think the issue is trivial why can't they piss off and allow those who are enjoying chatting about to get on with it??

Yes, I saw someone snark on a thread recently that people really needed to get a life. After reading 600+ posts.

My theory about PBPs and trolls is that sometimes it's important to behave as if they are real. Someone might be lurking with that issue and need support.

Unfortunately that means that I am pretty awful when I know it's a troll. Because all that pent-up troll-baiting is released.
