advance search is throwing up a lot of dubious posters with very little posting history

Thanks Unchartered. Do report any/all of those posters to us.

I noticed it too. Have already reported one.

UnChartered Thu 09-May-13 13:02:08

i have done, but am struggling to keep up hmm

SPsCliffingAllOverMN Thu 09-May-13 13:02:42

I haven't noticed this but will keep a look out

Tee2072 Thu 09-May-13 13:03:21

Are you sure it isn't name changes?

TantrumsAndBalloons Thu 09-May-13 13:04:15

Ive reported as well. Its getting a bit silly

UnChartered Thu 09-May-13 13:06:08

Tee they could be, but i hope not. some of the posts are really sick

ThreeBeeOneGee Thu 09-May-13 13:07:10

Tee2072: unless the name-changes have been accompanied by personality transplants or hand-toupees, I doubt it.

Spotted two that I can see. One very nasty and one just strange

Tee2072 Thu 09-May-13 13:10:20

I haven't seen them, but I do think sometimes we are quick to jump on the 'it's a troll/invasion' bandwagon without considering name changes. Which is a bit odd since people name change all the time!

StealthOfficialCrispTester Thu 09-May-13 13:11:18

But these peooe are trolling. Regs or not their posts are trollery

ThreeBeeOneGee Thu 09-May-13 13:11:19

I only reported the one I was most concerned about; perhaps it's a trust issue...

UnChartered Thu 09-May-13 13:11:57

i've a few NNs myself, so completely get what you mean Tee and i rarely shout 'troll' on the boards

these ones today though were particularly unpleasant, and wanted to draw HQs attention quickly

Tee2072 Thu 09-May-13 13:12:40

Gotcha UnChartered.

HUGE thanks for all the reports - we think we've dealt with the situation now, but please do report anything we've missed.

Did no one see what I did there?

Perhaps I should have put the 13th and 14th words of my last comment in bold.
