    I'm pretty new to TES and read more than I write, and in general I enjoy it. What I don't get is why people write the fictitious posts, the can't get a job because of DBS, being the latest, though from what I gather not the first.
    I can see why pathetic bullying people get power kicks from being nasty, trolling and upseting people, but I just dont get what people get from making up bizarre posts. I am naive is there a hidden agenda, whats the point ?

    Attention, drama?

    It is weird, I'm a bit relieved when they fizzle out quickly as there's a hint of mental illness about them.

    Is there not a place in life for the bizarre? Look at Teachers, the best TV show ever. Shot through with the bizarre, it was...

    There used to be a poster, oh years ago now, who would put the recent fantasists to shame. Can't remember her name, but there was one post (among loads of other crapola she wrote) about a dog she was looking after, dying. Oh, the hilarity.

    There was Goneril and AudreyTawdry and then there was the one with the citrus cardie whom we are not permitted to mention by name. Any of those?

    No, none of those. This poster was an Irish girl, and friends with Celtic Queen.

    I enjoyed reading albertdog's posts, then he 'died' then he turned out not to have been real at all.

    That was a sick joke. If you're still lurking, or indeed posting, albertdog, shame on you.

    I agree- very sick,:( I hate it when posters pretend to be in trouble and get lots of sympathy from other posters, when all they are doing is winding them up.

    I remember her but not her name. I do recall the dog story.

    HBF used to call Chris Criqch or something. That was weird.

    I wonder if the poster with the DBS issue was a journalist from trying to generate a story> There was also a dodgy survey posted at about the same time. I wonder if they were from the same isp number?
