For when they want to express their personal opinions, rather than the MN official party line (whaever that is).

I should think so. I know they did in the ancient days of Early Mumsnet.

In Early Mumsnet they used to have long conversations with themselves to make the site look busy, I believe! grin

Idris is Early Mumsnet a specific era grin? Are we in a New Era?

What an interesting question. It has long been bugging me: if they set up a forum to chat to other mums on, why don't they do any of the chatting themselves? It never occurred to me they had other names!

Gawd...I hope they aren't well known YouKnowWhats...

Would've been interesting if their alternative names left and went witht the moldies hmm

GodzillasBumcheek Thu 23-Jul-09 09:01:24

also, they would need other names so's people don't keep sucking up to 'em for a spot on the Round Up!

Morningpaper is the one to suck up to if you want a spot on the round-up.

Early Mumsnet is before I started mumsnetting smile.

DG look I've changed back into idris

GodzillasBumcheek Thu 23-Jul-09 09:21:47

I know that, DG, but how many newbies d'ou think notice the 'mumsnet' after a name and go into hoover mode?

Dumbledoresgirl Thu 23-Jul-09 09:31:12

LOL @ hoover mode!

Yes Idris, I did notice. Now, believe this or not, I have already forgotten the name you started this week with! Just stick with the one name please, it is very confusing for us oldies.

MNHQ are all actually hairy-handed truck drivers (the photographs and TV appearances are posed by models and the "maternity leave" episodes merely a cunning ruse to throw us off the scent) and so have no need to do actual chatting on Mumsnet.

Am going to stay being Idris

TrillianslebAstra Thu 23-Jul-09 20:19:12

So... any suspicions? Or do they namechange loads to avoid being 'recognised'?

Yes, I know at least one of them

MARGOsBeenDrinkingTea Thu 23-Jul-09 20:22:00

I know I'm risking being banned forever but I know at least 2 of the MNHQ name changes

Of course they have other names.

They aren't really called Justine Mumsnet and the other one who I can't remember. grin
