GrannyMacawell Sat 16-Oct-21 16:53:33

Scones Sat 16-Oct-21 16:54:34

Your other name can't possibly be as fabulous as lovebeigecardigans1955

I too love beige cardigans. Also not a Gran. Shhhhh don't tell.

It's good to know who people are thanks and even that they are people someone on this site once suggested I wasn't a real person presumably because I'm not so good always replying on time or even making sense all the time technology bah humbug

Welcome op.
I’m banned from the other place grin

Lol thats brilliant!

Scones Sat 16-Oct-21 17:36:49

Crikey Kandinsky I'm impressed. I've read some pretty shocking stuff on the other site so you must have said something VERY exciting to get banned. grin

I actually love both places, and frequent them quite often

BlueSapphire Sat 16-Oct-21 17:51:25

Me too! I frequently visit the other place and have a different name over there. I am a gran and a mum!

Kandinsky Sat 16-Oct-21 17:56:04

It wasn’t one thing tbh.
I was a member there for almost 10 years but kept breaking talk guidelines.
Had 2 temporary bans ( 1 week I think? ) and was on a final warning.
I don’t think I was any worse than a lot of people over there, I just got reported more 🤣 - but I still read MN now & again & find it funny at times ( although not as funny as it used to be ) but I don’t miss it now. Definitely moved on. ( 58 with 3 grandchildren I’m not really their target audience )

Kandinsky Sat 16-Oct-21 17:58:40

I’ve never been banned from anywhere else I hasten to add, been on here for ages no problem. Netmums for years no problem, same with FB.

Kandinsky Sat 16-Oct-21 17:59:42

Crikey sorry op I’ve taken over your debut thread grin
< runs >

Woodmouse Sat 16-Oct-21 17:59:51

I'm not a gran either. I really like the other place though.

What a compliment I hope you enjoyed

rubysong Sat 16-Oct-21 21:31:04

I daren't go to the other place in case the mother of my DGC is having a moan about me. (Only joking! She's lovely really.)

An accolade Kandinsky 🙂.
GrannyMacawell you’re welcome, there are others here, no children or grandchildren, all of us join in 💐

sodapop Sun 17-Oct-21 09:19:39

Yes you are welcome GrannyMacawell it's not compulsory to have grandchildren. smile

GrannyMacawell Sun 17-Oct-21 09:32:42

Thanks sodapop...are you a fan of "the outsiders"?

Witzend Sun 17-Oct-21 11:32:41

You’re not the only one, GrannyMacawell, I regularly visit the Other Place too - it’s nearly always far more interesting than here!

Me too.. I've been crying with laughter at times, at some of the topics.

henetha Sun 17-Oct-21 11:42:11

I've never explored the other place. Might it be a bit too fierce for me, possibly? (I hate conflict).

DiscoDancer1975 Sun 17-Oct-21 11:56:39

Is the ‘ other place’ Mumsnet? I go there sometimes....different name. Usually though, by the time I get the threads, they’re already pages long...and I can’t be bothered.

Namsnanny Sun 17-Oct-21 12:40:50

How so Witzend?
Better topics, more broad ranging? Or more argumentative?
Could thise from the other side suggest topics that would 'liven' things up?

MerylStreep Sun 17-Oct-21 12:48:54

how so, Witzend
For a start they are treated as adults unlike on here where we are viewed as someone in their dotage.
