yes i dont take these things personaly as i know i had my reasons,and didnt reaslise fruitshoots where evil but think my name was the final straw,dont know why such a silly thing got to me i know a lot of mn is about different oppinions and debate but i think unfounded personal attacks for no reason are a bit much

Amy is not chavvy! Blanch girls are classy! Although, Amy, the single x's do make it look like a prescription drug. Too long in Boots, maybe?

Where were you blasted for not bf?

chipmonkeyPumpkinNorks · 20/10/2007 01:22

Amy, fruitshoots are evil! Very hard to get now, but I believe there are some evil types selling them over by the Budabar!

Here goes: I would've thought MN to be a "place" for find support, advice & comfort, mixed in with lashings of humour & empathy. Yeah, right!

Instead, MN reminds me of the playground of my childhood. There are the bullies with their sarcasm, rough'n'tough attitude & attention-grabbing techniques. Then you've got the cool group, with their little insider jokes, snide comments about other posters along with the ultimate put-down; ignoring anyone who's considered truly beyond the pale. These cool people have their groupies, who need to connect with them by agreeing & validating just about everything the cool ones pronounce, even if it makes absolutely no sense because it's coded. Then you've got the kind-hearted, maternal types who are easily ed but mean well and of course the ernest eco mummies who really do worry about cloth nappies vs disposible or that not bfing is a fate worse than death. Finally, bring out the weirdos, the pathetically needful, the clueless and the hopeless. There are of course other categories and sub-categories but I'd be here all night trying to categorise and analyse them all.

But yes the general atmosphere on MN is far from being one of welcoming concern or of tolerance and acceptance. MN is not a comfortable place to be, although it is often more entertaining & side-splittingly funny than anything you could hope to see on TV. I'm not complaining at all - if you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen, right? - but when you're feeling down, as we all do, the wrong post from the wrong person can totally decimate you emotionally.

YABU - MNers, like precocious children in the playground, can be very cruel and very callous. YANBU - in a perfect world, a horrid mum wouldn't exist.

allhallows · 20/10/2007 01:31

I don't think I fit in anywhere, hunker. I'm too moody to always chase after the same bone.

hunkermunker · 20/10/2007 01:33

I can't think what you might be implying there

well you were my inspiration!somebody to love is on my telly am a head bopping now

allhallows · 20/10/2007 01:40

No implications implied. Seriously, I'm not thinking of individual posters but the general atmosphere. I joined MN years ago so I'm experienced enough to back away when things get too tough. There are certain MNers I have great affection & respect for, mostly because they have a keen wit (& a sensitive heart - again, yeah, right!).

see now you're going to think i'm bashing you, which i'm emphatically not doing... but i find it hard to believe that you've been "blasted well and truly for
2.not bf
3.not co sleeping

nor do i really believe that anyone has said you're a "terrible mum because of these things".

i just do not believe that these things actually happened. apart from maybe the fruitshoots.
