this was not me!!

Oh shit! I did wonder whether you'd been body snatched.

Any teenagers in your house, or a 'funny' Dh playing around?

usual Wed 24-Aug-16 10:23:50

oooh blimey.

NeedACleverNN Wed 24-Aug-16 10:24:43

No teens and it definitely wasn't dh. He can't spell so his writing is very identifying

Plus people are saying my posts are not highlighted so it must be a different account

Is he really that desperate for fans?

Better password change Need!

NeedACleverNN Wed 24-Aug-16 10:30:21

Looks like it but it does look like its two seperate accounts

I'll change my pass war for safety reasons anywayb

Very strange. Your commenting posts aren't highlighted in that thread either.

LumpyMcBentface Wed 24-Aug-16 10:32:14

It's weird that the other Need's posts are highlighted and yours aren't. So it's not the same account.

We must have been hacked again. Ffs.

It doesn't look like its come from your account as their posts are hiking hated green and yours aren't on the thread.
It looks like someone has found a way to change their nn to something already used, although a bit stalkerish.
I've reported the other thread

NeedACleverNN Wed 24-Aug-16 10:34:27

We got a reply.
They are on the case

GinIsForWinners Wed 24-Aug-16 10:34:31

Reposting my reply on the other thread:

If you hover over the 2 names, you can see that the imposter is using a capital I (9th letter of the alphabet and sounds like eye) instead of the lower case l (12th letter of the alphabet and sounds like el) in Clever.

Zombie wonders if this is the same charmer who thought it was cute to post as AnyFucker2, AnyFuckery and ArrmySal on HoneyDragon's pissflaps thread? hmm

Hallo all,

We are indeed on the case. We're with tech now and will update you as soon as we can.

JackBauersBag Wed 24-Aug-16 12:25:42

NN what a strange thread to start though. I'm blaming Stiller.

cozietoesie Wed 24-Aug-16 16:12:51

Any update?

GloGirl Wed 24-Aug-16 16:54:21

Also curious, hope it's not too frantic todag MNHQ!

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 24-Aug-16 17:28:04

Hullo chaps, sorry for the delay - we've been beavering away behind the scenes.

We can confirm that NeedACleverNN didn't actually start that thread this morning - a font issue meant that someone with a v similar name posted that thread. We've been in touch with NeedACleverNN and explained what happened. We're still investigating the situation - we'll update you soon as we know any more.

Ah right. So no-one else needs to do anything special? smile
