Very well put, jacqui.c. I'm not sure what can be done to stop trolls faking identities and pretending to be us. I was very angry when my name was used, as the post did not at all reflect my opinion. And one of those which pretended to be Musket was exceptionally crude and disgusting. It's a technological problem and I don't know if there's a way round it. I do feel that one is perfectly capable of scrolling down past a long, rambling, 'hysterical' post and ignoring it if one wishes.
I do hope I'm not driven from Mudcat by all this, as I've so much enjoyed the discussions and found the majority of folk here so likeable and interesting to have contact with. I hope that I've always tried to be polite and courteous, if sometimes drifting off-thread a bit. But for an old lady, perhaps that's forgiveable!
