I think they're just getting sloppy. Not putting the effort in any more. grin

Or maybe mners are getting better at spotting them.

I think the moon coming back has something to do with the oddness.

No idea, but it's very off-putting. I'm considering going back to just lurking without posting because I feel uncomfortable posting on any thread that could potentially be made up, which is.. erm... all of them. I don't appear to have the troll radar so many others have, I just take everything at face value and write my opinion. If it then turns out to be a big pile of shit, I regret having posted.

It's all very crap really.

psychomum5 Sat 13-Jun-09 21:48:06

it is because all the teens are on study leave..........well, thast my opinion at least!

I have been accused of being a troll and cod inthe last three months when i have namechanged for various reasons I mean we might as well be all on webcams or summit or not be alowed to name change

I fear MNetters turning up to dunk me in my local pond to check I am not a witch next.

I sy bring on the orks!!!! grin

Its driving me up the wall. I hate being suspicious of posters who seem to need help but loads of them sound dodgy lately. Unless I recognise the poster I have an open mind about it.

Rhubarb had an interesting theory that is was due to MN being vocally anti-BNP, and that, in their intellectual glory, might be winding us up. I think it has legs.

would teenagers really be that bored though? know mine would laugh at the suggestion.

well i think that at least if these tireless halfwits are reading my posts then at least they are receiving some education and keeping themselves off the streets.

kalo12 Sat 13-Jun-09 21:59:51

i meant trolls you know! I don't consider any real mns to be tireless halfwits, .your my favourites

SEA, mine would definately not go on MN, but who knows about others.......I would like to say no, but tis a very real possiblity.

that said, most of the trolls seem pretty 'old' (ie, the ones pretending to be teens eventually end up being kind of outed thru being too mature etc).

tis horrid tho, whatever they are.

Meglet Sat 13-Jun-09 22:02:03

I was thinking it must be possible to troll from a laptop and mobile phone at the same time (with 2 different names) and drag the thread out. There would be two IP addresses that way wouldn't there, despite one person doing all the posting [overthinking things emoticon].

mmm apostrophe yes i see. didn't think of that

TheyCallMeLofty Sat 13-Jun-09 22:10:24

The teens on study leave in my area are most definitely bored and are most definitely not studying. However they are choosing to wind up the local community by racing quad bikes/scramblers/mini motos at all hours and playing loud music from any available vehicle/stereo/mobile phone (amongst other things) not by typing a few threads on a parenting forum

It's becoming really tiresome...the first 4 threads I clicked on tonight we're all trolls!
I think the time for moderators is fast approaching...
sad
