Absolutely, I agree that knowing who has posted does not guarantee accuracy, often there is a common denominator for the ‘heat’ as Martyn posted. With such an open and anonymous forum I’m really surprised that other posters would want to investigate others, if there is something which seems unreal I just ignore and move on, it’s really strange to think that other posters may want to check up on other anonymous posters.
I think it was before your time, but I do remember one poster trying to investigate NTarrant (who visits infrequently, but has been around for many years). IIRC, he was trying to show NT was a former local politician involved in some minor scandal.
Of course, the hypothesis was false, but it did leave a bad taste in the mouth.
I have never tried to investigate another member and imagine that very few others, if any, have either.
