This post from another thread sums it up:

There have been quite a few threads lately which look like they've been started by trolls wishing to get a kick out of discussing child abuse with other posters.

There have also been other threads which have had a dubious intention too, not sure whether to name them, as I don't want to this to be a TAAT.

Has anyone else noticed this, because if MN us genuinely being targeted by paedophiles, I don't think the standard "OP seems genuine" type monitoring is sufficient.

Hi IPityThePontipines,

We do understand your concerns here, but we think it's just a coincidence that there have been a number of questionable threads/posts in recent days. We certainly can't see any pattern to it, nor any particular influx of trolls.

We do run as many checks as we can behind the scenes when we receive reports about a poster, so please do continue to let us know if something concerns you.

If you have questions about a specific thread, we're happy to try to answer you off the Talk boards - just drop us a line at
