- Who on here is "The Sun" reporter then?
Second time in a week that today’s forum posts are tomorrows “news” stories.Posted 4 years ago
First it was a certain rapper cooking someone’s dinner, now it’s the purple house for sale.
I bet if someone clever enough could set up a fake story with impressive photo “shopped” evidence (Jamie?) It would appear the next day with someone claiming it as their own.birkyMember

Once upon a time the folk on uk.rec.motorcycles did this after noticing stuff from the group was appearing in MCN. Sure enough the bogus story appeared the following week 🙂Posted 4 years agonedrapierSubscriber
Interestingly, there’s a followup to the purple house on facebook, and the link looks like this:
facebook sharing buying campaign? viral thingummy with stats to follow who goes where after they click on the link? clever buggers. BUY HOUSES! USE OUR SITE TO LOOK AT, THEN BUY, HOUSES!!! EVERYONE ELSE IS! QUICK! BUY ONE, BEFORE THEY’RE ALL TOO EXPENSIVE!!!Posted 4 years agomartinhutchSubscriber
Reporters used to be camped at the High Court, now they’re hanging around on Mumsnet – it’s written into their contracts. All that ‘Penis Beaker’ malarkey has just emphasised what a top-rate news source it is.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Mail had a reporter whose job it is specifically to trawl forums and twitter for rubbish to write up.Posted 4 years ago
