    Please, tell Andy, there is nothing wrong with taking a few shots and then go and have some fun online.

    That's great to hear - impostors Steam account as of last night appeared to be gone anyway btw.

    There's a lot of things these days that are valued higher than common sense, but that's for another discussion...

    There is no need to throw glib remarks into this thread. Did you not notice the effort the troll went into? Its quite easy to be unsure when there was clear info ( rightly blocked/ removed now) that was designed to target an SMS employee. Its good that it was discovered that it was a stalker/troll, but your glibness does you no credit. At least a discussion took place and any any doubts were quelled if it was an SMS on a day off/tired/maybe a bit tispey/stoned making mistakes, and the best part was a troll got discovered and blocked.

    You rather cry? Loosen up.

    TBH it's quite tiresome to read the same ... over and over again hence, even with sarcasm one needs to "point" some people in the right direction. Not that they'll get it most of the time in this cases because... well, if they did they'd stop

    Being 100% blunt, that kind of people won't be missed anyway... by anyone.

    I am surely glad that this was reported and yes it was quite an elaborate trolling attempt, but really I cannot see how one could possibly think that such behaviour would be displayed by an SMS employee. But maybe that's just me having more insight in the SMS side of things.

    Apart from that, what I wrote was more a general statement about today's "if it's on the internet then it must be true" state of mind of a lot of people, that was only triggered by this particular incident. I admit that that was not clear and it could have come across too harshly especially to those faithfully reporting/discussing this. If that was the case, then I apologize as that was not my intention. For the rest: what Roger wrote.

    With the right to say what you think comes the obligation to think about what you say.

    When I started this thread it was not to throw accusations and was kept light hearted, I for one did not think an SMS employee would drive like that and was highlighting the fact that someone was presenting themselves as Andy and it looks bad on the person being trolled.

    Being on the receiving end of such trolls I know how it feels and it has a bad effect on your reputation, now that it has been highlighted, the troll dealt with and Andy's name cleared then this thread has had a good end result and we can all sleep better at night ;-)
