    Remind me of the trolling invasion please – I vaguely remember it but not in great detail?

    It involved Hora, didn’t it? The rest can be left to the imagination.

    Years and years ago someone hacked a chatroom and created a spoof profile of a sexy young woman. Men who chatted to ‘Sexy Sue’ were unaware that they were actually posting as ‘Sexy Sue’ so you’d get two men both posting believing the other was a young woman. The hack created a massive log of the correspondence, gentle innuendoes building to less subtle innuendos, until someone crossed a line and a massive argument would erupt, as each thought the other was trying to con them.

    Could we create a hack where TJ thinks he’s posting on STW, but he’s actually posting on Mumsnet, with the logs of the posts appearing on Pistonheads?

    I don’t believe that for one second, the differing language, motivations and attitude of the two sexes woudl become immediately strange and out of place.

    I think Nick Clegg was a bit shocked when he did a live chat thing on there during the last election.

    He’d probably be given even more abuse now, mind,

    Seriously though, if your surname was File, would you call your son Peter?

    It seems to be lost from the internet now, it was about 8 or 9 years ago. The log ran for pages and pages and pages, too much to read but there was a ‘random’ button to jump from page to page. some of the exchanges were pretty quick, but some could run for sometime – almost as if two groomers had locked horns.

    Where’s the mass invasion thread?
    Hora deserves major recognition for what he did that day.

    I was just joking about that part. It’s easy enough to find a picture of me on here, a link to my blog and my email address. I don’t need/want cyber harassment πŸ™‚

    So – top three UK forums?

    Make it 4 and add in a body building forum.

    ARRSE is massive. Also responsible for getting Piers Morgan the sack. Gotta be up there.

    I’m off to have a look at ARRSE right now, ooh err πŸ™‚

    I was actually amazed at how prolific STW is. Every time I google a query, STW has a thread on the first or second page of google (normally boring stuff like “how to get rid of windscreen smears” or “Is the Edinburgh Defence valid for murder”)

    overclockers.co.uk forum is up there at the top somewhere I think

    are you from another planet..!?

    I think it could very easily work..

    Every character portrayed on any forum, male or female, is immediately strange and out of place..

    Surely the very fact that a person chooses to socialise online has already marked them out as a bit of a social outcast.. It’s highly unlikely that they are capable of spotting the subtle nuances between the personalities of a fish and a bicycle, let alone two members of the same species, whatever the gender.. (if such nuances actually exist outside of the realms of your mind)

    I loves Mumsnet, I do.
    I probably spend more time there than here, ‘cos of the swearing and stuff. The relationships section makes for depressing reading, though – so much shit happening to so many people.

    I’ve been advised not to make a statement.

    I also refuse to comment on whether the “Cillit Bang on a cast iron bath” query is in any way connected with the other queries.

    I’ll only speak to McNulty.

    After seeing it referred to on here regularly, I accidentally stumbled upon it after trying to work out from google whether I could use Cillit Bang on a cast iron bath (I know, living the dream).

    Wow. It’s basically STW but about kids rather than bikes.

    They even have an acronym guide, because, quite frankly, no one seems to like sentences.

    For example, when I was reading this absolutely tragic story about someone who decided to drink a bottle of CILLIT BANG, I was intrigued as to who this DS person was. Apparently, DS means “Darling Son”.

    “NAK” is another good one, meaning Nursing at Keyboard (i.e. breastfeeding while surfing mumsnet).

    I also noticed that STW receives a mention for “best invasion ever” after deciding to troll.

    It feels slightly more normal in here all of a sudden πŸ™‚

    Yup, just like STW, even down to not knowing was is and what isn’t an acronym.

    Still haven’t worked out what HORA stands for.
