Laois76

(Oldest Posts First)

What was that all about? Came and went in a flurry of likes. Some kind of forum experiment?

Obviously a scammer with multiple IDs to give himself an unmerciful amount of likes. A lot of issues there I would imagine, the couch is calling.

We had a situation where Laois76 was getting up to 20 to 30 'likes' per post from users with the same IP address. Now blocked.

Yeah he was grand but the likes thing was suspicious/bizarre.

He had plenty of good contributions and was well able for all aspects

If he had of just stuck with that he would have still been well received and there was no need for the other suspicious stuff

The like/unlike thing should be done away with, it was worth a go but imo it's added nothing

I gave you like a there jimbo, but I actually agree with you, people just go fishing for likes, although I have to admit I went the other way a couple of times and went fishing for the thumbs down.....good aul craic it has to be said.

I dont think the likes should be done away with. Nice to highlight good posts but remove the down posting as if you want to criticise or come back to a post then just post and make a point about the post not hide behind a thumbs down

I liked him and thought he was good...i thought everything he posted on here deserved a like, his problem was he thought the same so he gave himself 30 of them :/


Just hope when he got blocked he didn't bombard hoganstand staff with abusive messages ...from all 30 emails :(
