I think people would be surprised just how many parents 'use' internet fora - that doesn't just have to be an active member, but as a lurker.

Dad and my husband use Electrician and Plumbing forums, think Mum uses a well- known entertainment forum as well my log- in on netmums. Can't imagine my son or daughter using TSR while I am still around!

Daddy uses some rugby forum or the like, and tends to wind people up on it. It's quite amusing. :lol:

Apparently some dads tried to sue mumsnet for sexism...

The founder, Justine Roberts, responded: "Fathers have always been welcome on Mumsnet, I even keep one in my own house. I find it very useful for the spiders."

I forgive you

I do that sometimes. Mostly leave for a few months and then one day I'm bored enough to return. Evidently that is today :lol:

I'm pretty good, yourself?

People will sue over anything these days. The only sexist part is assuming the man is the spider killer, that's my role in our house

Today must be that day :lol:

Eh, I have been better. I was a bit of an idiot recently, screwed up one of my last remaining friendships. Go me. Glad to hear you're good though!
