to think it's really poor form to have pages and pages of posters baying for updates on a thread?

Prompted by the snooping MIL thread, but I've seen it lots before on other thread.

Some people aren't tied to MN, they're out living their lives. Their priority isn't to provide a living soap opera for the MN masses.

Can I point out the watch button up there ^ for those you haven't found it yet.

grin at DIRTY PILLOWS. I thought I was the only one, as well as muttering to myself 'they're all going to laugh at you' into the mirror, every time I get ready to go out.

Isn't "dirty pillows" from Carrie or have I missed something?

SassySpice Mon 11-Feb-13 12:37:48

What are DIRTY PILLOWS?

MardyBraWouldDoEddieRedmayne Mon 11-Feb-13 12:14:36

Right, I've done a bit of work (spreadsheets - bah), played a couple of Words with Friends words with Chaos (whom I'm thrashing as usual [wunk]) and now I'm going to get thrashed at play some monopoly with DS, who is on half term.

I think, that in spite of all these developments, I'm OK, despite a few YABUs upthread. Sorry I haven't reported every development. I'm trying not to dripfeed. Believe me when I say I'm not a troll (cube of poo, river of sweetcorn, etc, etc).

Has there been an update?

the only time it bugs me is when people start suspecting the Op is a troll because they havent come back to update with every juicy detail.

Sometimes people have lives, jobs, things to do, they'll be back when they can and not in time to please the impatient.

Does anyone know the OP in RL ?
Perhaps someone should check on her. I need to know if she is as mardy as she seems.
Pm me
<<bites nails downo bloody stumps>

usualsuspect Mon 11-Feb-13 11:14:24

I've just come back to this thread and I see the OP still isn't back hmm

Buzzardbird Mon 11-Feb-13 11:12:22

{neighing} (too many burgers)

GetOrf Mon 11-Feb-13 11:12:10

Come back and ANSWER US OP. I have got to go and make some gravy and don't want to miss the update angry

fromparistoberlin Mon 11-Feb-13 11:03:24

mardy, let us know you are OK? xxx
thanks

usualsuspect Mon 11-Feb-13 11:01:05

I only ever place mark on dodgy threads,so I can see the MNHQ deletion message.

roundtable Mon 11-Feb-13 10:58:36

I heard Mardy might be being kept hostage by place markers.

If she hasn't replied in two posts then I'll need to collect a ransom for her. Inbox me for my bank account details. I'll sort it, honest. . .

ethelb Mon 11-Feb-13 10:52:35

There is a lot of demanding people come back and answer you at the mo, which is just rude. You have no idea of another poster's circumstances.

GetOrf Mon 11-Feb-13 10:51:19

Lol at DIRTY PILLOWS

usualsuspect Mon 11-Feb-13 10:47:52

Is Mardy ok?

I'm worried about her sad

Pagwatch Mon 11-Feb-13 10:47:06

Is Mardy coming back?

<wrings hands>>

pluCaChange Mon 11-Feb-13 10:45:18

Very good point, Mardy. I've given up on the same thread for this very reason.

FFS, it's not necessary to make a threadkilling challenge out of someone's dilemma, and it's not as though the problem was desperately upsettuing for the OP, meaning she needed a MN cheerleading squad to give her the emotional oomph to tell someone to "FOTTFSOF" or say "NIACS" wink. MN does that extremely well, and it would be a shame to inhibit that urge.

ouryve Mon 11-Feb-13 10:42:20

Placemarking s a bit pointless, anyhow. You can boomark your place (need to turn this option on - on the same page your choose your colours etc) and, if you haven't posted in it, watch it. That's all you need to do. If it's grown, click on the thread title and the page will scroll to where you bookmarked it.
