This is just a reminder to all users to be careful what they write in private messages to strangers on EF. Even quite friendly and apparently helpful people may exploit that information for their own ends.

Unless you know an EF member in person, share nothing. There are some really dodgy people on the internets.

Oh, and if you're one of those dodgy people, don't imagine for one minute that it is acceptable to forward other people's private messages to strangers to prove a point. It isn't.

But you knew that anyway, right?
Even the none dodgy ones....

Ok just give us one nugget of info... is it a well-known member?
I suppose "malevolent witch" is a bit broad, considering the membership of this forum.

But yes, she's very well known. Perhaps in both senses of the word.

Well, the stalker isn't very good at it, given that she thinks I have two sons and live in Zug.

Very well known on EF you say? How strange if she thinks you live in Zug- as about 1 in 10 or less of your posts mentions magnificent Glanerland. And anyone who has been here a while will know who your very much better half is, surely.

TBH EF rules seem strange that it is not allowed to insult, etc, people on a thread- and yet not allow pms and red rep which clearly break netiquette not to made public?

Yeah, but she's deranged. Deranged people don't pay attention to things like that.

Oh, I'm quite happy to quote one of her PMs. Here you go:

Quote:
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt and toe of frog,
Wool of bat and tongue of dog,
Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting,
Lizard's leg and howlet's wing,
For a charm of powerful trouble,
Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Will you be my fwiend?
You're a nasty Englishman!
I hate you!
Tell me about your boys.
I have something to ask you.
Do you live in Zug?
You're so rude and nasty!
Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and caldron bubble.
Cool it with a baboon's blood,
Then the charm is firm and good.

Sigh.... You don't make it easy for me, aren't you?

Anyway, you should see it as a form of flattery. But It's annoying, I understand.

Just to be clear - yes, we try to insist that they're not copied onto the open forums, although one or two sometimes sneak through.

Rep comments can be seen by the mods, but PMs cannot. But PMs can be reported, and if appropriate action can be taken as a result.
