First topic message reminder :

It's probable more subjects are up for discussion on a forum, and obviously we are communicating with people from different backgrounds and different cultures.
So, it wouldn't be surprising if you crossed swords more with people online than you would when discussing topics with family and friends in your local area.
But are you more patient and restrained with people when you discuss, argue, or debate a topic if someone is in the same room?

For instance....when (in the real world) did a difference of opinion end in name calling?

Gels, you're not helping.  Take a look at the title.  One of the contributing issues is 'gang' activity, and what are you doing?


i stand by my post

if a person wants to make accusations of ''disgusting posts'' from way back in the past then they should at least have the common decency to provide a link for it (imo).

there was nothing gang related in my post

grow up quill and stop being such a fool

I don't give a shit what people assess.

I wasn't asking anyone to assess anything. I was not even complaining.

I was merely pointing out the irony /hypocrisy of Syl  complaining of people applauding nasty posts after she herself had done just that.

And no, the vile post was not from ''way back''  at all, it was relatively recent.

I posted it because it was the offensive bit. The rest was in no way offensive, so had no need to be posted.

Why do you always have to make a sarky comment if me or Andy posts? What is it to you, Syl?  What business is it of yours?  It's never YOU whom I address when I am making so-called trouble, yet you always jump in and make it all about you.

Are you saying that after someone posts,  they should then stand to attention and respectfully wait until they get a reply from you, PLUS permission from you to log off.  Otherwise they are accused of ''post&run''


Don't lie and try to claim I was making a fuss. Just the opposite. All I did was remind you of your lack of self awareness by you complaining of people ''liking'' a nasty post when you yourself are the worst culprit.

Provocative inflammatory nonsense. Typical.

After all you see nothing wrong with such words in a post, you applaud.

If you moan it will only be because the posts ''resonates with you''. Yes??
Now tell me how it feels to have your own insults turned back on you, Syl cos that is what I just did there. Cool

what a ridiculous comparison you try to make

eddie mentioned no names whatsoever she did not call YOU out for any reason, she did not call YOU any names.
it was a general comment for the whole forum

syl was obviously right about it resonating with you personally if no names were mentioned

i think eddie was bang on

I think Eddie's "whore troll" comment was on the thread where I got basemented...


And it was a general comment about a certain type of behaviour, being someone who pops up on threads just to throw attack posts at another poster, while failing to post anything of any value or interest about the actual thread/topic, and especially where the poster subjected to this hostile verbal attack has not even posted on the particular thread...


I'm sure Eddie will correct me if I have misinterpreted this in any way.

HT and I joined Mumsnet a couple of years ago. She was banned on the same day, I was involved in a really heated debate within 10 minutes.
They certainly didn't seem to take to newbies with minds of their own.Laughing

If a couple at the end of the night need 2 taxis to get home, should the man let the woman take the first cab, or is it OK for him to get the cab and leave her waiting alone in the street for the 2nd cab to arrive?

Sounds a little esoteric. Off the bat, I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving a woman alone on a NYC street, in the middle of the night. On the other hand, she's going to be alone anyway when she gets out of the cab in front of her own residence. Then again, once home she has some refuge a few steps away.

Which side did you take? What issues were raised?

At least issues on here are life and death, as in BLM.

if we were at some public venue pub/theatre where there wasn't any danger i wouldn't mind waiting on my own.

come to think of it even if at a cab rank and the last one there the man jumped in and i had to wait for another one, on my own, to pull up. even though i wouldn't necessarily feel any particular sense of danger, i still wouldn't think much of any man who did that and wouldn't bother with a second time

That was the basic topic.

HT and I both said that in our own experiences and in that situation, the man should always see the woman into the first cab and wait for the second.

The general opinion on mumsnet was that we were old fashioned. Why should we expect to be offered the first cab? Why would a man feel less safe than a woman waiting alone in the street? Did we not realise that this was 2019 and times had changed, women were equal, modern women resented being treated as if they were weak, blah, blah, blah.....they got really riled, and came across like a group of bloody bruisers who would smash a mans face in if they ever DARED to open a door for them or offer to give up their seat. affraid

I honestly dont know Gels. We were on at different times even though we joined at the same time...so it's not as if we were a double act.
HT got treated worse than I did, she was actually banned on the first day....mind you she probably swore a lot at them. Razz

Secondly, I don't see how this thread was directed at anybody in particular -- it's an innocent question, and fairly interesting as well. Syl isn't the type of poster to be sneaky and accuse people without coming right out and saying it. She's taken me up on a number of issues over the years and has never danced around the problem. I think everyone should calm down a bit and stop reading more into what's been said than what's been said. And yes, I do think Quill and Maddog fight too much, but I just ignore them for the most part.

Shame on you, eddie. Cool

I think Eddie's "whore troll" comment was on the thread where I got basemented...


And it was a general comment about a certain type of behaviour, being someone who pops up on threads just to throw attack posts at another poster, while failing to post anything of any value or interest about the actual thread/topic, and especially where the poster subjected to this hostile verbal attack has not even posted on the particular thread...


I'm sure Eddie will correct me if I have misinterpreted this in any way.

That is exactly what I meant. Everyone seemed to understand that except those that didn’t want to.

That she referred to a "whore troll" is a lot different from calling someone a whore.

Obviously, you were hit with a reactionary, counter-argument. That argument form is quite common with new, or emerging issues, like feminism.

During the pan-Slavic socialist movements in the 19th-century, they were called: counter-revolutionary slavs…which, with typical political enthusiasm, turned into counter-revolutionary slobs.

If other women want to wait on the street on a dark and rainy night whilst their male companion is half way home in a nice warm cab....good for them.

If I expect the man I am with to offer me the first cab...I don't think that makes me an anti-feminist, just smart. Wink

One woman (on a different thread) posted a pic of a little day dress she had just bought to do the school run in. Some of the nasty comments she got were unbelievable.
How a little cotton frock could cause so much angst for so many women was laughable.

It’s called envy. The ones who made the nasty comments were probably overweight.

if we were at some public venue pub/theatre where there wasn't any danger i wouldn't mind waiting on my own.

come to think of it even if at a cab rank and the last one there the man jumped in and i had to wait for another one, on my own, to pull up.  even though i wouldn't necessarily feel any particular sense of danger, i still wouldn't think much of any man who did that and wouldn't bother with a second time

feminism be buggered





The scenario was the couple would be in the street at night. Sharing a cab wasn't an option. Two cabs were called for.. one arrived before the other with no indication of how long the other one would be.

Oh, yes. The woke mob all roared like wounded bison at suggestions that a man should do the gentlemanly thing and ensure the lady got in the cab first. For some reason, certain women found that an affront to their equality. I can't remember the exact argument but I wound one of these feminists up so much she nearly imploded. So they banned me.

what a great way to describe

they sound like a bunch of nutters. it might be fun to go wind them up

my youngest son has a real protective nature with women. he met up with his older sister and she said to me ''i dont know where he got this from cos he was too young when dad died to have picked anything up from him'' but he's all about walking on the outside of the pavement, carrying bags, opening doors etc. he wouldn't dream of leaving a woman on the pavement waiting for a cab

I think it's instinctive in some men.
M y OH is the same, and far from being offended like the mumsnet crowd seemed to think women should, I dont find it patronising, the opposite in fact.

It's called being a gentleman. I'm not surprised most young blokes these days avoid being chivalrous when all they get for their pains is a filthy look and accusations of sexism. That mob on Mumsnet were enough to turn you gay.
