    @Rose&Aurelia I really hope you stick around. I always found your advice incredibly helpful particularly in breastfeeding and expectations on self settling and sleeping through the night.

    I'm really sad all my fav posters (such as @Sonja and @kw123 are feeling like they need to leave, you don't realise how much I've enjoyed your presence and posts on the hub.

    Same to you Little Miss!

    I'm not leaving - just having at least a long weekend break. I've seen weird phases on here before and they pass.

    Hopefully the trend of writing posts about "awful" things someone has seen another parent do, will pass.

    I don't think being carbon copies of each other is the best basis for a friendship anyway. Most of my friends are incredible different people to me ...with different dress sense, opinions, likes and dislikes.

    I look for people that are kind and compassionate. Generally the other stuff doesn't matter that much to me. I don't care what walk of life someone comes from or how old they are. It's part of the reason I like BH so much because It's a bit like the voice and I can chat to other mothers without the pre conceived ideas about what I'm like because of what I look like.

    I've always really enjoyed your posts @Rose&Aurelia xx

    Just to be clear the amusement is fine. Not sure if you intended that comment as passive aggressively as it came across.

    I just personally find name changes very confusing and like feeling like I've gotten to know people over the years. If the names change I lose that backstory. I post on here because I feel like I *know* this place. At the moment I don't.

    Agree with @Sonja. And that's not why I need a break anyway. It's the judgy posts, as I have mentioned above.

    I think it came from concern not malice

    No, I don't feel responsible. I like to make people laugh, that's who I am and who I always have been.

    I started this thread because I noticed a bunch of people saying they wanted to change their user name but couldn't think of anything creative to change it to. I always think of crazy user names and thought I might amuse others by generating some.

    It's like real life here in the way that some people enjoy my humour, but there's usually a few people rolling their eyes because they don't find me funny.

    I hope that the posters who have been bothered by my nonsense thread are aware that I contribute often to more serious threads and I'm not just here to try and be funny. I'm not here to ruffle feathers and I'm disappointed to hear this thread is the icing on the cake for some to take a break.

    To be honest, I didn't expect many users to actually change their names! I only noticed two name changes last night so all the backlash this morning has surprised me.

    Anywho, I'll be back later to generate anyone I've missed because people are enjoying themselves, and I may as well please them because you'll never please everyone.

    Just checked back - a total of 3 name changes, one of the names was generated by me.

    Biting my tongue pretty hard right now.
