No Amy is a lovely name but the excess of X's around it are considered to belong to the buying and selling topics where there is an abundance of insincere 'hun' and 'kisses' between people that are intent on ripping each other off

mamazon · 20/10/2007 10:52

your name is yoru name, there is very little anyone has a right to say about it.

the Xx's are a little "netmums" though, thast a huge no no round here, as is teh word "hun" and ((((hugs))))

how about trying to think up something witty or funny as a name. a name everyone will remember and associate with a hip funky lady with a lovely name.

just try not to have mummy in it...they dont like that either

I've used MN for the last few years but I've changed my name 3 times. This is because I got so fed up with those MNers (in the minority) who are here just to stir things up, disagree with everyone else and really make this sight look like somewhere to bitch.

Why do I change my name? Because I try to make a fresh start and it seems that each time I come back I see MNers still bitching at each other. I don't know why I bother really - I guess I was hoping it would be a site to give and receive some really helpful advice on lots of issues - sometimes it is sometimes it isn't.

minesalargeone · 20/10/2007 10:54

I meant site...not sight....derrrrrr!

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 10:56

i cant be bothered to cange it to something unrecognisable because it would be starting all over again with the people i regularly chat with

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 10:57

change even...

massivebigpumpkinface · 20/10/2007 11:02

dd's name is Amy, and she is most definately not chavvy!
Don't change just because of what someone else said. Another mner once said my non-halloween name was 'repulsive'

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 11:03

i changed because i dont want to be thought a chav

3andnogore · 20/10/2007 11:15

amytheghoulbanisher would fit in with teh Halloween theme going on, ya know

Read your post about realising you were being precious, etc...sorry you are having a tough time...we all feel touchy at times
(But you definately weren't being bashed on the threads you mentioned...not that I could see, anyway]

lucyellensmum · 20/10/2007 11:29

I was always under the impression that a chav was more of a teen identity thing. My daughter was "EMO" and didn't like "chavs" because they wore "plastic" clothes. Whereas she wore ripped jeans, facial piercings and safety pins in her t shirts

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 11:32

i dont know think chav is a bit of a brittish term

WorkingClassScum · 20/10/2007 11:36

Gosh, do people put others into little socio-economic groups they can easily dismiss on here... ?!

Allhallows did a fab post tho! But slightly worried she might be a cool person and now I'm a groupie!

AitchTwoOh · 20/10/2007 11:59

i wasn't searching your threads, amy, i just got your name mixed up with LMNW's, she'd said she'd had too much wine about two posts before mine and i was responding to that. 'scuse the mix-up.

talulasmum · 20/10/2007 12:34

wear your "chav" badge with pride.

is amy a chavvy name ?

ive never heard of one.

chavs (im talking about the kids) normally have surnames as their first name
or, are named after countries/ cities they've never been to, or even know really exist.

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 12:36


talulasmum · 20/10/2007 12:38

posh spice is described as "chavvy"

do you think she cares?

BreeVanDerCampLGJ · 20/10/2007 12:41


It was me, and I do consider the XXX's to belong to buying and selling boards, however it is none of my business and I should not have commented.

I apologise

amytheearwaxbanisher · 20/10/2007 12:43

thanks think this thread should be left to die

BreeVanDerCampLGJ · 20/10/2007 12:45


This is the first time chance I have had to come on to MN today and I have only just checked the threads I am on. I was going to apologise on that thread then saw this and this thread is more appropriate.

allhallows · 20/10/2007 13:29

What is it with you women? Get a grip, ffs! I was joking, God help me, about the bloody earwax. I WAS MAKING A JOKE! do you understand humour? My dh just had large amounts of wax sucked out of his ears by the gp because he doesn't rinse the shampoo out of his ears in the shower!

You there, makeminealargeone or whoever you are, pull yourself together! I couldn't give a f*ck about chavs, we don't have them here.

There is no humour on this site anymore & no compassion. It's desperate.

LittleMissNervoustWitch · 20/10/2007 13:34

i like picking the earwax out of ds's ears (discusting i know)

however, he doesnt seem to mind, if fact he goes all soft and tilts his head, and when i take my hand away he pulls it back for me to do it again
