I've just come into the thread to add nothing of value but to tell the op and everyone else that I don't know you, and that I'm going to follow you around telling you this from now on...even though I don't know you.
In all seriousness, mn does seem to go through funny spells and this seems to be one. I can tell by my posting, I don't post that much anyway but when it goes a bit funny I just can't be bothered to post anything most of the time as who knows if the thread will be deleted.
It must be difficult to get the balance right though at hq.
Morning Rebecca. I think that because of heartbleed, things feel less secure than they did. The really annoying troll last night mentioned 'anonymous' - which any troll can throw in as 'frightener' but is there any evidence that the targeting is more malicious than usual?
I do think 'Namechanged for this' needs looking into. I sort of see why they say it in that everyone will cry 'interesting first post', BUT lately 'N/C for this' precedes a WTF style thread where everyone is anyway.
I have another name that I post really personal stuff under as I like this name to be used as my escape from the crap that I live with daily...but, I never have to announce the nc as if you always use it then people can see you have 'history' and not just some random comments in any thread that starts with an a, b or c. Maybe people should just have a 'personal' and a 'usual (not the usual ) nn? There must be an answer to this surely? Limited names might stop the sock wearing activity too?
