Why make up stories on here?

In reference to the most recent deleted post.. The op ended every reply with a 'x' ... A red flag if ever there was one!

I strongly suspect quite a few long running and much enjoyed threads on here are largely made up. People like telling and listening to stories, short and tall....

Doubtfuldaphne Thu 01-Aug-13 21:19:16

Steffanoid that did make me laugh!

WorraLiberty Thu 01-Aug-13 21:10:40

There are all sorts of strange things in my nightie grin blush

We should have a competition to see who can get the most posts on a made up thread! grin

Gruntfuttock Thu 01-Aug-13 21:06:55

Bugger! madasa beat me to it!

Gruntfuttock Thu 01-Aug-13 21:05:48

Worra why are the cats in your nightie? grin

Passmethecrisps Thu 01-Aug-13 21:05:38

The strange lady who feeds the neighbourhood cats in her nightie at 4am...with pigeon poo in her hair.

Have you been watching me worra?

madasa Thu 01-Aug-13 21:05:15

Why are there cats in your nightie?

Steffanoid Thu 01-Aug-13 21:04:35

I opened this thread thinking you were wondering about make up being unreasonableblush
I was very hmm

WorraLiberty Thu 01-Aug-13 21:02:49

Just think about it like this....

Every odd person you've ever crossed the street to avoid.

Every strange looking person you see on the bus...and pray that they're not going to choose the seat next to you.

The strange lady who feeds the neighbourhood cats in her nightie at 4am...with pigeon poo in her hair.

The pervs who stand outside pubs and shout "Get yer tits out" to passing women.

The people who sit on par benches and babble incoherently into cans of strong lager.

They all have access to the internet, so perhaps that answers your question OP?

Enjoy! grin

Oh, it wasn't the one I was thinking of.

How did people know?

I'm so gullible I believed the one about 'gullible doesn't exist in the dictionary'.

But you can't go through life thinking people are all liars.

Can you?

Hassled Thu 01-Aug-13 20:58:54

There have been made-up ones which have been hilarious though. I'm too dippy to actually remember what any of them were, but they did exist, honest.

As to why you'd make-up a story that wasn't an attempt at humour - to get attention. Any attention is better than no attention.

Emilythornesbff Thu 01-Aug-13 20:58:00

Ooh. Which one was it?
I bet I was sucked in.

Whothefuckfarted Thu 01-Aug-13 20:55:24

Just for the record. Trolls can't be easily identified by an IP address. All you need to do is turn your router off (for about 2 minutes) then on again and wala.. new IP address.

Now what thread are you on about? grin

usualsuspect Thu 01-Aug-13 20:54:43

I rarely read relationship threads, most of the trolls seem to hang about in there.

theWookiesWife Thu 01-Aug-13 20:54:30

It's a shame .... Could this be because no one just smiles or says hi when they are out and about anymore ... What is this world coming to ! sigh full of lonely people !

Passmethecrisps Thu 01-Aug-13 20:53:54


Saw it. Knew it.

Hi-5s self.

KirjavaTheCat Thu 01-Aug-13 20:53:33

Yeah I know which one you're talking about. Did anyone actually reply?

Justforlaughs Thu 01-Aug-13 20:52:54

whispers "OP claimed that her DP had a wife and kids up North" that she didn't know about.

WorraLiberty Thu 01-Aug-13 20:52:02

Is it sad that I feel a shiver of excitement when I see that mnhq have had to get involved in something?

Yes grin

Justforlaughs Thu 01-Aug-13 20:51:51

Now I'm getting sceptical about other threads on here sad

Bowlersarm Thu 01-Aug-13 20:51:12

Quickly whisper what thread it was.....

I always get suckered in. I'm not very good at spotting trolls blush

cacamilis Thu 01-Aug-13 20:49:50

usualsuspect Thu 01-Aug-13 20:49:18
