There is a big article on the media page of the i today. An interview with the lady who founded Mumsnet and Gransnet. The whole article - and there is a lot of it, is all about mumsnet. No mention of Gransnet at all shock hmm confused angry sad

Well, I suppose Mum is 'sexy' and Gran isn't.

There's no doubt that GN is an off-shoot - I remember when Hillary Clinton was in town and we were allowed ONE question!

bastards grin

Well it is said that we're invisible---perhaps we are hahahaha

Perhaps we're all figments of our own imaginations.

We don't bring in the big bucks 💰

It would be nice to have a response from HQ about this.

Do you have a link to the article Monica? I can't find it.

I think it’s this one Riverwalk but there’s a paywall.

On another thread, someone suggested we were really all avatars in some gigantic video game.

Or maybe as in H2G2, we are an experiment run by mice [grin}

if no one can see us, we can get on with being quietly subversive. we could change the world and no one would see it coming

Thank you Jane

Think what we can get up to, quietly hidden in the background

I love just slipping into conversation snippets of my history - like going on protest marches, and watching these young ambitious mums faces

I think therefore I am! I think.

I think we're in a parallel universe!

We're just after-thoughts
hmm

Mumsnetters perhaps forget that they wouldn't be here at all without us.

Hello! HQ here. Suspect the journalist chose a particular angle for that piece. Justine does mention Gransnet in many interviews and talks - wherever there is an opportunity in fact. Feel free to do the same grin - whichever universe you're in.

I hope you have complained to the i.
