Subtle trolling...

Anyone else noticed this?? I'm beginning to get the impression lately there is some subtle trolling going on mainly to do with SIBs in the last few weeks - like groundhog day with the same questions in multiple topics/posts going round in circles, advice ignored, same questions in different places, ancient topics revived...

Hi max no I think you are right!! I just thought it was my suspicious mind or the fact that we had a health amount of new members all with the same questions and did not know how to search the site yet. We will have to keep a watchful eye for 'other' events as reported to see if anything is related so to speak.
Cheers

Trolling? On RIBnet? Surely not!

Frankly lads, I think that there is just a bumper crop of lazy gits who have found the site and can't be arsed reading it. After a while on here, you see a pattern - they arrive, they ask questions, they don't listen to the answers and then they fade away. They're Forum tyre-kickers.

BTW, Hi Jambo! Have you finished that drachm of Redbreast yet?

It runs in cycles-usually after a spell of good weather

& wiring feckin VHFs It did occur to me that there was some trolling going on, as no-one could be that thick for so long without Darwin catching up with him.

On a tangent, when I add your website into my favourites, I get the name as "home" I think it needs the name defining somewhere.
