Actually be asking for an opinion on a subject, rather than topics that should perhaps be under "chat" or perhaps "ask a gran" ?

Could it be that some people, when starting a new thread, just pick the first topic on the forums list?

AIBU to expect any thread started by phoenix to include innuendo, tongue in cheek humour, something risqué? grin

I think that is an entirely reasonable point to make, therefore YANBU smile

Doodle sorry to disappoint!

YANBU in asking why reasonable people, with reasonable topics to discuss, are asking if they're being unreasonable.
Perhaps, for new members, there should be a "how to post in a forum" tutorial which automatically pops up when they go to start their first thread. Probably a bit of an ask of GNHQ though wink

Is there somewhere which gives a list of what all abbreviations/synonyms means? I'm pretty new to Gransnet and have only just worked out what AIBU means. What does YANBU mean?

You Are Not Being Unreasonable. When you have been a member for a while, you seem to learn by osmosis, but there is a list under Acronyms

Am I Being Unreasonable? AIBU
You Are Not Being Unreasonable. YANBU

Never a let down phoenix I love your posts. You are one of the few I look out for, always good for some fun, chuckles, sympathy or common sense.

Hey Doodle! Steady on.! grin
Hope I'm "one of the few" blush

However, I'm switching to philosophical mode soon so watch out! wink

You could never be accused of being unreasonable phoenix
Certainly not in this case.

AIBU = am I bring unreasonable

YANBU = You are not being unreasonable
