Who Mitmoo has been posting as and surely all these threads are getting in the way of the usual bollocks intellectual debate on AIBU?

Or have I just added to them?

What have I missed?

Who is Mitmoo?

I'm bored with it now

I'm still not Mitmoo.

I'm interested inasmuchas I don't want MN permitting multiple identities being used simultaneously by one poster - who can then post 'together' on a thread as a fake consensus, or post a false group opinion very rapidly and very forcefully.

That's not in the spirit of the MN I joined.

On advice talk boards, it could be pretty horrible, if a person were asking for advice about an unwanted pregnancy, say.

So amidst the tomfluffery, there is a serious point.

Plenty of posters have multiple names though ,its the nature of forums where nc is as easy as it is on MN

not much you can do about it tbh

I had 2 names for a bit when my last account went haywire but I deleted my old name once I transferred to this one.

I have my festive name obviously but it is clearly me.

I just smacks of one of those spiteful girls in the playground stirring up nonsense and then running to teacher.

Best thing for--trolls--posters like MItmoo is to ignore them

usualsuspect Sun 25-Sep-11 17:11:43

strike out fail

Agreed, usualsupect, and most people don't misuse that facility but use it reasonably and wisely and for a bit of harmless fun.

I think the suggestion on a very long thread last night and today is that someone has misused it for all the wrong reasons.

Which would be sad.

It seems a bit not in the spirit of things to post as two people to prove some kind of point though.

Namechanging so you don't out yourself in RL, or cos it's something embarrassing, or just cos you fancied a change is totally different.

And I'm still not Mitmoo.

Do you really think people don't NC to troll ?

Of course they do ,not nice ,no, but a fact of life if you use internet forums

ihatecbeebies Sun 25-Sep-11 19:54:10

I don't see the point in have more than one account confused, if you know people in RL and want to talk about something private then name change but what is the point in more than one account?
