There is a thread which has just been deleted where the OP admitted to being a troll and soon after the thread was zapped.

However the poster had a long back history of posts.
What I want to know, and I think it is important for us all to know, is whether this person had a long running posting history but got bored and then decided to 'come out' as a troll. Or if they had hacked into an existing account.
If they had built up this long posting history why did they bother?
If they hacked an account we need to know.

Who was the OP?

Why do you need to know?

MaudGonneMad Mon 23-Nov-15 22:29:42

Oooh which one?

elQuintoConyo Mon 23-Nov-15 22:30:06

Eh?

I am the walrus. Hth grin

Why do you need to know?

I think we should all know if an account has been hacked. Especially after Jeffery.

Which thread? I think some sadly do build up a posting history.

I don't think anyone would have hacked into an existing account for this purpose. They're history is probably all a bit of a mixture of truth, stretched truth and lies or they just got bored.

I'm sure a huge amount of posts on Aibu and chat are a load of bollocks anyway so I wouldn't lose any sleep about it.

I think we need a few more clues op...

What happened to jeffrey?

NorksAreMessy Mon 23-Nov-15 22:34:13

But, she was a prolific poster...like really really prolific over a few months (I did the impolite thing and advance searched when it all went a bit beeeeenarners)
I am confused.

MaudGonneMad Mon 23-Nov-15 22:34:25

Can you give us a hint?

BlissfullyUnknown Mon 23-Nov-15 22:35:08

Well OP I doubt you're going to receive a breakdown of the ins and outs from MNHQ but why not email and ask?

Pipbin Mon 23-Nov-15 22:35:41

Here is the thread: www.mumsnet.com/Talk/am_i_being_unreasonable/2514670-To-despair-of-this-logic?trending=1

I did the search too Norks after it went a bit odd.
This is why I just don't understand them being a troll.

Some trolls do build up posting histories and whole personas. I was on here years ago and there were a few regulars who turned out to be trolls. Annoyingly for me I was having a breakdown and off MN when it kicked off, came back and 🌪poof🌪 they were gone.

Which thread?

Pipbin Mon 23-Nov-15 22:36:17

I know that MNHQ aren't going to tell just me, but I think there is a case for all of us to know if this person has been hacked.

Missed the whole thing, who was the op?

Shakey15000 Mon 23-Nov-15 22:36:35

Xpost, sorry

WicksEnd Mon 23-Nov-15 22:37:03

Just say who it was!

Pleasegrin

NorksAreMessy Mon 23-Nov-15 22:37:11

Plus, all her other posts are still there.
She said she was a troll, but I think that was just in exasperation.

I tell you, what with armed robbbers, co sleeping teaching assistants, Sparcarcass, A VERY goady flouncer and a major row about tatty books this place is majorly bonkers this evening

MaudGonneMad Mon 23-Nov-15 22:37:26

But if we didn't see the thread at the time, we don't know who the OP was...
