Edited to add that I'm so, so happy to be here. My original comment read as being very negative; finding all of you has actually made me feel great!

The bitter divorcees and twenty year olds who think that primary caregiver = conniving leech have finally chased me off reddit. The fat activists and MLM folk have corralled most of the Mummy internet AND, annoyingly, the small business community as well.

I also don't spend enough time online to be able to participate in speedy, blow by blow discussions, so the more relaxed, thoughtful pace here is very welcome. I may not write for a while, but I'll be reading a lot.

    MLM folk

Not a fan of r/socialism, I take it.

My mind latched onto Reddit -> Twenty Year Olds -> Activists -> MLM

and then filled in MLM to mean Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, which has a decently sized base of twenty-year-olds on r/socialism.

In retrospect, it wasn't really the obvious choice for me to assume as for what MLM meant.

... I need to remember not to comment on stuff before I have coffee.

As someone who knows next to scrap about acronyms- What's MLM as Gem said it actually stand for?

I actually love that that's where your mind went. It shows your world is not yet as corrupted as mine.
