How do you 'regulars' know what any one else's life is like, how unkind to judge
I don't think anyone is judging. Regulars are just that, regulars, and so are more familiar with what seem to be genuine posters.
Most GNetters are kind and helpful and are just concerned about others being drawn into threads without realising that they are not genuine - and giving their time, wisdom and, often, part of their own personal story.
On the whole, I think that we are protective of one another and try to alert others about fake threads.
No one informed us - family bereavement
Should we ban them? - politicians on TV
Hard to develop relationship - family far away
