I find it very sad that a site member has been forced to contact me to tell me that there are several people on this site that are writing under two, maybe, three fake profiles.

I can only ask, what do they get out of it ?

They are clearly very sad people as far as i'm concerned.

This site member has given me names, which I wont mention on here.

But I will be aware from now on.

Oh they wrote to you too, I got the impression they were telling me in confidence. I wonder if they gave you the same names as they gave me.
I don't know who to trust on here any more.... :(

No-one has told me any of this but a few fake profiles have been obvious and I have blocked them.

NoSaint, Yup, I received a PM earlier today...I did doubt it at first, but reading the names of the people involved, I can believe it.

How does this person who wrote to you know they are fake profiles?...

Michaelt,

...and to anyone.

Although a PM from another poster MIGHT be true, "believing" it is not a confirmation that they are actually correct. It just means the sender and the receiver have a strong suspicion.

Also, if someone does post the same script under two names, it does not necessarily mean it is from someone with a dual profile, they could have just copied a another post they liked and agreed with, even though not exactly a great idea.

I don't see Michaelt's posts at all provocative other than his politics are left leaning and people here do not want to see any other opinions. Seems to me some people want to keep rubbishing what they disagree with, come out with no evidence, then complain when challenged over it.

There's fakes and scams in everyday life now.
It's such a shame.

My generation has been bought up with this in mind, so we are wary. But for the elderly, Is it new and they are easier to fool.

To Michaelt and everyone ..............

We have all been on here long enough to know who are the obvious fakes with dual profiles and I don't think anyone would be foolish enough to mistake a copied post with a similar post from a dishonest profile.

I have never seen Michael's posts as provocative and I have never seen JustLyn's posts as provocative because having different opinions or political leanings has nothing whatsover to do with having dual profiles. I know when caught out it can be used as an excuse to wriggle out but I know three profiles which are obvious fakes. One leans very much left, one leans very much right and the third is just a complete imbecile. All now blocked of course.

At least this information is being exchanged in private and not likely to create another mass hysteria of trolling in the forum.

By 'eck, MSE had it's moments before, but that's no reason to transport us all to the 1950's, I'm expecting Mr Beckett to throw the blackboard rubber at us any minute.

Michael..."But I will be aware from now on."

Ok so you are aware that a member believes others are operating under fake profiles. What difference will that make?

I'm not sure how this member would KNOW others are operating multiple profiles. Personally, I think the best course if action would be report the list of names to Admin who can then investigate.

What do you get out of spreading such rumours?

Michaelt  Male  Devon 9-Oct-2019 18:45 Message #4757121
NigelInDevon , I'm not spreading rumours.

So you have facts to back this up then do you?

Does Michaelt ever make any sense?
Its like a 5 year old child managed to get on to the site.

Michael..."NigelInDevon , Read my original posting"

I did, hence my comment about spreading rumours.

Michaelt  Male  Devon 9-Oct-2019 20:34 Message #4757131
NigelInDevon , Someone from this site sent me some information that I believed was important enough to use as a posting.

End of....
