@Reecedouglas1 why do you only create threads and never respond to any?

    Are you a new fangled bot?

    Already discussed. You are wasting your time. He has never responded to anything.

    It's a question I was wondering myself...

    I'm unsure why he can't be blocked.

    @Reecedouglas1 could be an employee of TES attempting to stimulate interest in the forums (and hence raise revenue through advertising) by starting treads.

    I did wonder if TES were behind this.

    I've made a point of ignoring all 'his' threads.

    It's not a policy I take with real posters. Even ********* Brexit supporters...

    A tad underskilled for an employee don't you think?

    School leaver 'working' as an unpaid intern, possibly? ;)

    I tried blocking then some one else might respond then it looks like a legit post.

    IF he's real, and there is someone on-line who appears as if they might be real, he needs to check his work. His spelling and grammar are bad. I forgive typos as I amke many such myslf...;)

    Indeed. I've block him/her too but I've nearly got caught out on being on the verge to post on a thread,before realising it was one of his/her.

    It has been speculated elsewhere that he could be some kind of paid harvester of opinions regarding the tastes and leanings of a certain demographic oft-seen on this forum. I'm more inclined to suspect a less savoury motive for requesting fairly personal data from posters.
    Clearly the mods are entirely happy with the extra traffic he generates. There's certainly one way of stopping that.

    Whoever reecedouglass is, I'm a bit bemused by the hostility towards him/her. The topics raised by reecedouglas aren't likely to cause offence and had they been started by an established poster would probably be popular.

    At least the threads provide the opportunity to discuss something other than Brexit.

    It's about motive & behaviour, isn't it? If you (or any other poster, new or old) starts a thread, normally (actually probably always) they come back, comment, post again etc. And they normally don't start several threads the same day...

    Exactly. Most of his/her topics are not controversial but I don't really want to share opinions/life experience on a thread where the OP's motives for posting are not clear. The OP is clearly not participating in the thread,so why are they asking?
