    Our friend Douglas

    He seems like a nice young man but his lack of response when he makes yet another punt on behalf of his analytics venture is very irritating. Does he have your blessing?

    Nizebaby, I started an identical thread a few hours ago but because of premoderation, it won't appear until lunchtime tomorrow.

    Great minds...

    Indeed as quoted by nizebaby above, your post has already appeared.

    Live and let live, usually, but yeah - he's pretty irritating. Why should I have to bother to block him? It's a form of invasive spam, in my totally worthless opinion. Meh.

    But if gets more clicks for TES which boosts advertising. That's the aim of the threads started by TES Mods, I think, but at the moment someone else is doing it for them.

    I'm not sure why anyone would object to these threads. They aren't offensive and you can simply ignore them. In fact plenty of people seem to reply despite knowing that he/she/it never responds.

    People should simply not reply to them, and let them sink to the next page - exactly as people do to my threads!

    Presumably our sweet but irritating young Douglas looks at responses to his titles.

    Why do people think the poster in question is actually the same real person as his/her TES forum name?

    That was my initial response too - I quite enjoyed them to begin with. Bit of a change from the usual pish. Now I just feel a bit irritated. Can't help myself. :)

    They are almost all lifted from another site, so don’t even have the virtue of originality. If the intention is to divert from B***** threads, then it could be said to have had some success, but it is stifling the forum and I would imagine that it puts some people off posting topics that are important to them.

    Personal used to be a welcoming place and even if the debate was ‘lively’, at least there was some. Now, it’s either threads being locked, or bland tosh.

    @colpee Do they think that? If they do, does it matter?
    The way he throws out threads and then leaves them feels a bit robotic. I don't want to respond to someone who isn't invested in the topic. I know some of the respondents might have interesting things to say but the whole thing feels manipulative. I did respond initially but don't now. I'd be happy if his threads stopped appearing.

    Douglas Reece was an actor in Waterloo Road. Maybe knowing that might change how some respond to this poster, I don't know.

    Does anyone think my real name is either Aqua or Marina? But if you were referring to me on here you'd call me Aquamarina. I don't understand what his choice of username has to do with anything.

    His threads are just so same-y and so bland. There used to be a poster, I think something like petalutha (probably got that totally wrong) but he/she came up with all these interesting and original threads that never failed to amuse or get a good debate going.
    Although I did laugh my head off last night at Jude’s snickers/knickers poem which got youngest running in from the other room to see what on earth was going on. :D

    Banned. That's what happened to some of the best posters.

    I can name a couple but that would only get me censored again.
    Media controls the narrative by censorship these days.

    Not only is he irritating, but he can't spell. That's not good for someone who is trying to get teachers on side...
