Because I am getting seriously worried about the mental health of some forum members, specifically regarding the outbreak of multiple personality disorders. This seems to have originated when members of one well-known boat forum migrated to another well-known boat forum. Well, this would have been quite easily remedied if JK had given/sold his membership list to JF: no need to register twice (and hence no danger of a person taking on an additional, very often DIFFERENT persona!). Examples of patients with this disease or showing symptoms:
1. 'jackeen' & 'jackeen & missus' (who obviously do not know how to use capital letters) & Mrs Jackeen (who obviously does)
2. 'MeMe' & 'MeMe II'
This last example provides evidence that once the disease takes hold, it is really very difficult to treat successfully: MeMe II has now registered on the same forum as MeMe!
A further symptom of the disease which can make it difficult to identify for certain was mentioned earlier and that is the sufferer's insistence on adopting a very different name and personality from their original one. There are no confirmed cases of this yet but suspicions have been raised regarding the following:
1. 'Aging Youth' and 'Ageing Yob'
2. 'Manos' and 'The Garfish'
Now I feel that our esteemed forum leaders have a duty of care towards us and would humbly suggest that any forum member showing the symptoms described above should be offered psychiatric help immediately.
Awaiting your response,
Worried, of Reading
