Why don’t we have a bitching, shouting angry thread?

Where anything goes. It might allow the frustrated, angry or plain fed up to vent without spoiling other threads.

Somehow I don't think it will make an difference to other threads being spoiled Artdecogran as I think for some spoiling threads is the goal.

Worth a try though.

Nice thought but a little naive perhaps! Frightening those suffering from anxiety and depression is the game plan for some.

So much easier if you could just block the negative posters who keep repeating themselves ad infinitum. I keep hoping they will poor themselves silly before too long.

Bore themselves! So tedious! The lack of an edit button not you Artdecogran.

I suppose people aren't either nice or nasty are they?

Someone reports it and it gets pulled :-(

I think sometimes the moderators watch and clamp down when it gets too bad.

That would IMO spoil it for those GNers who enjoy having an go at other people whatever the topic. They wouldn’t like to be confined to just one thread!

There are plenty of those already! grin

fevertree Fri 03-Apr-20 17:47:08

... I mean- bitching, shouting, angry threads.

Because somebody would be bound to butt in and derail it by bring nice gringrin

See, we've already got one!

You did realise that I meant this one?

Time to move on Grandad1943

Grandad1943 Fri 03-Apr-20 19:50:35

sodapop time for some on this forum to learn some decency and respect for others and look for the same in themselves

I will not be moving on anywhere, for what went on within the thread I referred to in my post @18:35 just ensures my determination to remain on this forum.

So you can look forward to my presence for a very long time 🤗

M0nica Fri 03-Apr-20 20:14:22

Except, of course, that nobody would think that the thread applied to them.

Grandad1943 Fri 03-Apr-20 20:33:06

M0nica if you are referring to my above posts, those on that thread on the evening I referred to need only look to see if the thread applied to them. However, no doubt they are already aware of that.

M0nica Fri 03-Apr-20 20:40:06

Grandad1943 I am not referring to any of the posterss on this thread. Just commenting that the people the OP would like to have migrate to the thread she suggests, would never go there because they would not realise that they were the ones referred to.

For all I know I may be one of them, but I do not recognise myself as such.

Grandad1943 Fri 03-Apr-20 20:42:39

M0nica, point taken. 🤔

Artdecogran Fri 03-Apr-20 21:10:16

When I suggested this thread I thought people might take it to mean rants about anything. You know anything from animals to yo-yos. NOT each other. But there we go, I guess I’m the ever hopeful fool.
My rant would have been about bed linen manufacturers who don’t put size labels on their products. So you spend 1/2 hour putting a double size quilt cover on a king size quilt. Grrr 😡

Curlywhirly Fri 03-Apr-20 22:03:57

Well my rant - why do shops insist on putting the size 3 shoes on the very top shelves out of reach of small people, and size 7 shoes on the bottom shelf? I have yet to meet a 5' woman with size 7 feet and vice versa 😡 Same goes for bras - size 32" completely out of reach, larger sizes at the bottom ( though I suppose there are a few ladies who are tall and only 32" chest!). And, why do they only make swimming costumes in normal and extra long lengths, but no petite ones! As you can see from my rant, it's not easy being small!!
