Being Ruined By A Faker

I have amended this story after receiving helpful feedback from another member who felt I was bullying and I've removed the usernames of the faker.

At the moment EP Q&A is being ruined by a faker - someone who is asking questions and then answering them under multiple profiles to make their questions the hottest of the day.
Some people might say, why do you care? Well for some of us Q and A is a laugh and we want to see the real hottest questions - not a lot of meaningless **** at the bottom of the page.
Make your own mind up but if you see the pattern, like I did, then I guess staying away from those qs is the only way to resolve it.

I think this faker is back yet again! All the user names end in "girl" this time, some people suspect she is also unfairly flagging there Q's in order to give hers a better chance of getting into 'hottest' Q's of the day, EP are supposedly aware of her but I see her yet again this morning!!!! FFS!

I've given up caring about *him* to be honest. I just pictured all the effort they were going to and it made me feel sad for them. Yeah EP don't care! :)

If that's all they have time to do, then I feel sorry for them tbh.

ffs what a loser she is

I am amazed as this would take an awful lot of time to arrange.And for what.

I would like to know how to spot peoples other accounts how do you do it? How do you know when it's the same person on each profile?

I think under normal circumstances it would be hard but in these circumstances she/he is too obvious. She answers all her own questions and creates the profiles on the same day. Running them all as a normal profile would be too much effort so none of them are developed properly. She only answers her own questions for her own gain. Opening each profile in succession.

I thought it had to do with an isp address or something , just good detective work it seems.

I for one, will keep an eye open now

I had no idea this was happening

I love my q&a

Lets lose this faker


Mark xxx

She's got 2 in the hottest questions today as she's answered them herself. She is asking as 'afunlover' today.

And you've flagged it??

Yes but it takes a few to flag before it disappears

Needs to get a life

Thanks for the info,I will keep these in mind

I think she's stopped it all now :)

Nope she's back today as theyoungwoman lol

Thanks for keeping me informed.Will be aware of that.

that is such a lame way to spend your time......she must be signing in and out all day

You missed all the action HHA x

I know......I will weep later.....or not

lol X

im going to start a womaninlove is a Question hogging cheat group?..

Dear Powers that be,
May I never be so bored in life, that doing something like this sounds like a good idea to me. Please help this poor lost soul find something more befitting their awful situation...like watching leaves fall from trees. At least they will be getting some fresh air! Oh and P.S....I'm still waiting on that "pool boy" we talked about, thanks. :)

lol great response!
When I wrote this I was annoyed but that annoyance soon turned to pity and now I don't even wonder what she's/he's up to anymore. I think hoping their life gets better is probably the best way. :)

Wow...too much free time

She might get the "hottest question spot", but I don't understand what's she gonna do with it?

It's like getting 50 likes on your photo. Once it gets old, no one cares..


If she's getting paid for it then that's a different thing, but I see no other reason.

I agree it is really odd and the other thing atm is that she is swapping profiles...so she asked a set of q's as womaninlove and then she asked them as lovetoloveyou and now she is asking the same set as alphabeta9 WTF makes no sense but nevermind :)

It's strange that people have enough spare time to log in from so many accounts just to get their questions featured. She/He obviously has no life.

Thanks for the heads up FA

isn't it crazy how pathetic some peoples lives are that they have to do this? I feel sorry for her.

I noticed that she did get alot of the hottest questions of the day lately, now I know why lol, some people have too much time on their hands.

My question is how do you check that? It sounds like an EP TOS violation although I shouldn't talk as I have three user names - but I don't hide it nor do I do activity to give my questions more play.
Seriously, how did you find those names.

I don't mind people having 2 or 3 infact it only bugged me about this person when I first found out. It was like that initial WTF. Now I don't really care because I think their life must be so bad or they must have such bad problems to need to do this so I feel more sorry for them.

I noticed because those names had ONLY answered her Qs. Since me outting him/her they've used the profiles to answer a few other Qs but I guess ultimately they're going to have to go back to answering their own Qs again due to time restrictions and the whole purpose of the accounts which is to make their own questions popular!

That must took some time to find out.

CFOM I have one and a half accounts, unless my pal has changed her password

Good Lawd, you can have that many profiles ? eek
That's why I'm so token poor....lol

I personally don't have the time...but whatever floats their boat lol

seriously...lol

umm, it's supposed to be ' seriously'.....:)

Yeah I know where you're coming from.

shes spiritually f*ked what else would anyone scrap all the answers. It blows. They should just kiss themselves in the process. But wheres the justice.

omg lol I never thought I'd hear you saying spirtually f*cked lol, I love it! Thanks Free :D

lol, you have a talent for finding these crazy people, its a sad reality the person couldn't stop their own addiction for BA.

Man, and "theconnection" is a pretty cool name too! What a waste. Lol, one of them is called "catchmeifyoucan". Is this her way of taunting EP?

Yes I wondered that too. Although she/he has deleted the last three profiles. Scarily they've gone from having an active female account to an active male account.

Do you honestly have proof that this person is using all those different usernames? I'm just a curious person and like to know.

I honestly do :) I wouldn't risk writing a story about it and making myself look like an idiot otherwise lol. Check it out yourself and make your mind up!

lol...wtf Each question must be taking her ages!!!! Probably why they are all "one word only" questions :)<br />
<br />
Anyway I don't know if EP can/will do anything soon, but if people just read this and block, the questions don't show up anymore lol.

I know it's crazy :D

fakers are losers.

too many fakes on net. i need a prove if you are fake.

i think EP people just want to increase number of experiences to be highlighted on their home page

Hi, I understand now what's been happening after reading your post. .
It's rather amazing that one individual can have so many profiles.
The mind boggles as to why would they want to??
I guess it takes all types, especially on the internet.

You are not a PI by any chance? Lol. Great effort at busting something most people wouldnt have the courage to.

You know that bit in your 100 things about being competitive? Well I'm like too but it extends to hating any kind of cheating. I can be a bad loser sometimes but if I lose because someone cheating omfg their life is not worth living lol

Lol, so I see.

Thank you for the info,I really can't understand why they do this,some sort of a split personalities.

I tried to ask but they blocked me lol
