Oh ok, that’s good then. I was confused because they didn’t seem like the sort to do that

How did you work out who it was?

:?

Impressed that guy has dedicated so much time to this, good work. The nobber you may be referring to is me as he accused me based on me liking the same tweets as she did ... despite the fact they were usually about ReadingFC!

I wouldn't call it good work, I'd call it fcuking creepy and borderline illegal, but that's just me

Wonder who it was

Well it's all a bit weird.... not just the fake account but the whole "uncovering" of it.

Surely there's thousands of fake accounts, hundreds of thousands! Ignore them, that's surely the only and best approach.

One of the many reasons I left ALL social media platforms about a month ago. Just can't be fooked with the whole thing anymore.

Personally, I think there's a difference between bot accounts using someone's pictures (which make up most fake accounts) and one bloke taking a girl's Instagram pictures and faking a whole persona with it

Agree but it could be a girl doing it! (Plot twist)

May I just say that whilst the above could easily refer to my behaviour on line, I have never had a Tw@tter account and wouldn't even know how to go about getting on it. Ditto FaceBook.

Whilst I accept I am a d1ck when I've had a few, I only post on HNA!

Just in case anyone was wondering!

PS I rate Gunter, but Stam can sod off as far as I'm concerned.

I reached the end of my tether for a few reasons.

Social media is more and more just about vanity, likes and wanting to shout your opinion.

With regards to RFC I was just sick of some individuals constantly acting like petulant children.

For example:

Adam Federici tweeted.
Fan A tweeted "come back Feds we miss you"
Fan B "no way, because of him we lost at Wembley".
Just no need.

The whole JLow saga is a good example. It was disgustingly personal with some messaging him about his working hours for god sake.

Montages of Gunters mistakes.

Moan moan moan.

Apart from football most are political with commentsa like "loony lefties" or this is "Tory Britain" for every fcking thing. It could be a horrible car accident and it would turn political.

I could go on butnit comes down to it just distracting me from real life.

Agree with you mate, but if you can wade through all the shit there is some good stuff on Social media. The downside is, everyone gets to voice their opinion and opinions are like 4rseholes; everyone's got one but we don't necessarily want to hear it/from it.

social media really does show how horrible
and malicious people can be. i think it's a good thing that it shows
up
people for exactly what they are.

(non rfc related) but there was a picture posted of social media of harry kane with his long time girlfriend in the
week at those fifa or uefa awards, whatever they were
which led to a multitude of vile and nasty comments about his partner

Yea it's staggering how cruel people are and unkind. I guess it's not that surprising anymore though.

I do genuinely think that before social media these people existed but they didn't have a voice or platform. Now they do they congregate in large hateful swarms online.

Even when poor Bradley died people still took the opportunity to say hateful things. Same thing with Rio's wife

Just look at when Piazon broke his leg. Quite a few Reading fans messaged him directly laughing at him.

Get a bloody grip

It's Blackett in the changing room naked (holding his love sausage) and shaving himself (no I'm not joking)
