A thread I posted on had only been going 1/2 an hour before MNHQ announced it was going. Admittedly the thread was ridiculous, but how do you know if someone's a troll?

Spidey sense.

Good job really.

Am kicking myself for posting on it now. Ah well I have just had a proper chuckle at the message that is left when I click on thread title. (Tiger mum thread).

Maybe when it stated the child was 6,then five, raised suspicions

ZZZenagain Tue 28-May-13 22:18:39

new poster with a provocative post?

ZenOfPetals Tue 28-May-13 22:20:52

I'm suspicious of the twin tolley thread, too. Can twin trolleys be stored with regular ones? At our shop they cannot- they just don't push into on another

Magic grin

I think I do sometimes, but then a totally normal lookingthread vanishes... Why did the one about bubuying baby bits break talk guidelines,for example

Sparklingbrook Tue 28-May-13 22:22:36

I was sucked in yet again.

Yes they can ZZZen, I have struggled with them on many an occasion while dts try to run away. Not that I am moaning about it or anything wink

ZenOfPetals Tue 28-May-13 22:24:25

go look at twin trolleys,it is even more fun than tigermum

AKissIsNotAContract Tue 28-May-13 22:24:32

No idea, I'm shit at spotting trolls.

ZenOfPetals Tue 28-May-13 22:25:41

Oh, thanks, Polly. It must be legit, then, which makes it even more fun!

ZZZenagain Tue 28-May-13 22:25:55

me too. I am never one of the first to pick up on it

Sparklingbrook Tue 28-May-13 22:26:08

There I was ploughing in regardless when everyone else was saying 'is this for real'? And I was feeling sorry for the OP.

PollyPlummer Tue 28-May-13 22:27:27

I have just hidden that thread grin bunfights scare me [wuss]

damn - and I only read the first couple of pages of the Tiger Mum one - I like a mad good thread

JoyMachine Tue 28-May-13 22:32:12

'S onbvious- it's their hairy palms...

I',m more worried by JulieMumsnet signing off posts from "NMHQ" hmm

A little disturbing...

crazynanna Tue 28-May-13 22:33:51

Me too, AKiss...I never know...ever <gullible>

SisterMatic Tue 28-May-13 22:38:36

Has the trolley one gone cos I can't find it?

lougle Tue 28-May-13 22:40:31

The thing is, for every tigermum troll out there, there will be a real tigermum reading who needed to hear what people said - so job done smile

ZenOfPetals Tue 28-May-13 22:45:01

Oh, no, someone has reported the twin trolley one, saying no one could be that stupid. Damn,I was enjoying it
