    What's happened? Did someone upset them?

    My suspicion is they appear late on a Friday afternoon, push buttons until Sunday eve then disappear until the following weekend (or holiday) i.e. when the Mods aren't about.

    Corrupted spreadsheet - name, password, viewpoint, who to give likes to etc columns are all up the spout.

    It has always been bad over bank holidays when the mods aren't around. The longer it goes on, the more you have to feel sorry for the social inadequates who resort to such tactics to while away the time. Thankfully we now have an ignore button. Funny how those on the ignore list don't last very long before you never see them again.

    There was a less troublesome 'batch' who kept appearing on The Welcome Lounge, and Workplace Dilemmas, a while ago.

    Faux (or real?) naivity was their thing, and I think one of them posted today.

    But imo they were more amusing than troublesome, because they could never keep their stories straight!

    What do you reckon happens to all the likes the trolls award themselves after they get banned? Do the mods share them out among themselves or does TES employ auditors to prevent this?

    Is there a possibility they will be put in a pot, so they can be stored up for a Christmas raffle?

    I think you might've posted too early, DoY!

    Just noticed newest member: Horatio-Blows (with a hyphen!)

    I expect he can be held in check with a pack of Fisherman's Friends for the time being.

    I've been good, too! Not letting the 'others' bother me, and have been posting mainly pictures instead of lengthy, reasoned arguments - kitten is off to teach!

    They go to the list of TES "Good causes" to get traded in, a small ill child gets a trampoline or suchlike.

    Hitting 'Ignore' is the best way of thwarting these menaces. Like a Tamagotchi, if you don't feed them, they soon disappear!

    Gosh. They are a blast from the past! Do they still exist?

    No! No-one fed them and they all died! :D

    I have a very extensive 'ignore' list and hardly any of them have got above 100 before disappearing. Well, I suppose they have disappeared.

    I've just looked at mine, clicked on the profile page of each of them and TES can't find the page, i.e. it's not there and they have been deleted.

    Horatio blows?

    No, that's wrong. Shouldn't it be: Horatio sucks?

    No new playmates?

    A dozen of 'em, some of whom posted 600+ times.


    Be careful what you wish for in life. And on the forums!

    Best wishes
