I do. To encourage sock puppets?

Sparklingbrook Thu 12-Sep-13 19:33:34

That sounds a bit sockpuppety.

It's only on the mobile site and it's to make it easier to change between names.

I dont have that shock

GetStuffezd Thu 12-Sep-13 19:33:41

I don't have this either!

viperslast Thu 12-Sep-13 19:34:30

Omg, it allows you to use name changes you have had.

Is it just me that thinks that makes it a bit easy to cause trouble? Why else would you need a quick switch option permanently available?

viperslast Thu 12-Sep-13 19:35:09

Yes sock puppet is what I was thinking!

BrianTheMole Thu 12-Sep-13 19:35:12

Thats weird, I'm going to give it a go!

viperslast Thu 12-Sep-13 19:36:38

I was going to then realised I would out myself grin

Rooners Thu 12-Sep-13 19:37:03

Ooh! <rubs thighs>

BrianTheMole Thu 12-Sep-13 19:37:39

Think it has to be a name you already had in the past. You cant just choose any random name.

viperslast Thu 12-Sep-13 19:38:28

Maybe I shouldn't have pointed it out!

Seriously though, what is the reason for it? I assume it isn't really a special concession to trolls?

BrianTheMole Thu 12-Sep-13 19:38:33

Ha, yeah, a bit slow on that. I'm not using my old names either.

So why are mobile users special?

viperslast Thu 12-Sep-13 19:40:44

Yes Brian but you can go register your troll sock puppet new name then flick between them every post. What good can come from this?

Maybe hq know trolls can't use smart phones so they think the mobile site is safe?

BrianTheMole Thu 12-Sep-13 19:42:26

Thats dreadful!
