Whats with all of these "fantasy posts"?

Lately ive been seeing a lot og threads that have been fake, people take a picture off the internet and claim its theirs and then make up a story about it ect...

There have been quite a few recently. Silly thing to do because if you have found the picture the odds are someone else has already seen it.

No discussion over false claims. It is a straight ban.

I never even thought of someone doing that. How do you all figure it out?

(I believed one a few days ago and commented on it believing it to be real.)

I know Boots. I was reading one last week and it up being fake.
So after you are banned, you can't post anything right?

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Some people live rather sad pathetic lives, and instead of doing things to fix their lives and improve their existence, they turn to the internet and create a fake life.

It is pretty sad, but it happens. The world has always had plenty of fake phony people in it, it is just that technology and the relative anonymity of the internet has made it easier for them, although as time and technology progress, it is getting harder for them because it is easier to find the images they steal.

A curved ban is when monitors are in two (or twenty ) minds as to whether to ban or not!

Things like this tend to go in spurts. We'll have a big problem with it for a while (usually, though, it's more in the winter time when kids are inside with nothing else to do), then it will go away and we won't have any for a while....then here they come again.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Idk I find it so weird, why waste all the time to create an account, find pictures, write a legit sounding post and then get banned? People these days lol.
