To wonder if any of you 'stalk' anyone on MN?

Not stalk in a sinister sense! Just because they are interesting/fun to follow. I had a wee gander at some of my sisters' posts!! Mwahahaha!

Looking at your sister's posts is stalkerish. No I don't stalk anyone, unless they seem strange, then I do an advanced search on their name to see if they're always strange.

Nope but do wave at those I know smile

GoldenAutumn Tue 20-Nov-12 21:31:36

Er... no!

Hassled Tue 20-Nov-12 21:32:28

Nah - I might have a bit of a nosey if someone is particularly nice or particularly odd, but chances are I won't retain the information anyway - I'm absolutely crap at remembering posters' names.

Oh do you mean stalk RL people? That's weird. Why would you do that?

squoosh Tue 20-Nov-12 21:33:12

I'm not sure stalkers ever admit to stalking, do they? grin

FrillyMummy Tue 20-Nov-12 21:36:28

God no, not real people!! I was just thinking, some people seem to comment a lot on certain topics (AIBU etc) and seem rather popular among some MNetters, which led me to wonder if you 'follow' people on here...it makes sense in my head! And I'm not weird. Or stalkerish. Honest!

Hassled Tue 20-Nov-12 21:36:36

Oh I see - no, not RL people but then I only know a tiny number of posters in RL.

Hassled Tue 20-Nov-12 21:36:59

X post grin

I know roughly where a couple of MNers live, locally that is, but stalking? No way. I read their posts as if they were any others, and I've never made any attempts to actually pinpoint their homes, or to find/follow them in RL. Most people are here on condition of being anonymous so I respect that.

Must admit that one or two names have stuck in my head because they are bizarre, though.

I'm rifling through Hassleds knicker drawer right now.

FrillyMummy Tue 20-Nov-12 21:43:41

Ah!! HoneyDragon!! My sister uses a flapjack recipe of yours (I'm pretty sure it's your name she wrote on the recipe card)!! If it is you, thanks smile My DH loves it grin

Hassled Tue 20-Nov-12 21:44:58

I really wouldn't, Honeydragon - some of those pants date back to the early 90s.

HoneyDragon Tue 20-Nov-12 21:52:39

No no not me!

Tis SoupDragon of the awesome flapjacks smile

HoneyDragon Tue 20-Nov-12 21:53:41

Yes Hassled, I can see that. Really? Spice Girls knickers?

SoleSource Tue 20-Nov-12 21:55:31

Never! except for HoneyDragon

FrillyMummy Tue 20-Nov-12 21:57:52

So it is! See, you all know each other!! How?!

akaemmafrost Tue 20-Nov-12 22:00:23

Yes, my ex and his ex who he was still hung up and dumped me because of it! It's more habit now though when I am bored. She's a right doughnut! And he never updates at all. So it's all a bit pointless really.

HoneyDragon Tue 20-Nov-12 22:02:56

<<pokes sole away with broom handle>>

Stop stalking me when I'm stalking Hassled!

Frilly- it's because we spend too much time here grin

SoleSource Tue 20-Nov-12 22:23:55

damn she has spotted me, dons camoflage gear

woopdiedoo Tue 20-Nov-12 22:39:34

How did you work out your sister's username Frilly? Or did she tell you?

FrillyMummy Tue 20-Nov-12 22:44:57

I worked it out because she got pregnant 2 months before me and she told me (not realising it was me on that thread) that she told family she was pregnant when she was 8 weeks but she too her mum earlier as they are really close etc etc. It all fitted together! I told her that it was y thread. She rarely comes on here now as her thread chat on fb. However, all 3 of us sisters know each others' names on here smile The eldest of us 3 is often in the food section as she is a marvellous cook smile

woopdiedoo Tue 20-Nov-12 22:48:24

I have seen others say that they have worked out who mners are in RL so in really paranoid about being outed. Might name change soon wink.
