How do you measure the subtle nuances of conversation on the internet? Sarcasm, condescension are all things you really need to be talking to a person to 'get'.

Are they talking about groups on the site that are slurring women and minorities?

Or are women just "feeling" as if they are being marginalized?

There really needs to be some context to debates like this.

MUMSNET is craycray though.
