What is anyone actually gaining from setting up a fake forum?

You get to hang out with a fake Kath Middleton. Tongue

Not that funny! Just had another tweet from someone who thinks I talked about his book on KuF under a strange user name.

I cannot understand it either, J. What moron gets kicks from malware or from impersonation. Sickening really.

Sorry, Kath. The 'user' I saw with links to your blog and website is Conssappdo, who has over three thousand posts, although everything is possibly fake. Undecided

Well there's another one. Inunab is also masquerading as me. Sad

I'd tell you that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but I know it's no comfort. Sad

It's a means of taking over people's computers and then using them to spam, or hack into bank accounts, anything like that.

It's not funny at all - Kath, this must be quite a worry for you even if it isn't in theory anything personal. Hope at least the fake KUF can be destroyed soon and that its many spreading tentacles will die then as well.

I'm fielding a lot of flak, Cecilia. Regularly being asked why I said something about some book I've never heard of. They are convinced all this piracy talk is happening here.
