Have you ever started a thread and then responded to your own post in a different voice?

is that normal, or is that a little nuts?

Not nuts. But odd. I'd say sly, sneaky, that sort of thing. Passive aggressive.

I did once...basically because the comments got me thinking about the problem from different angles.

It is sneaky. My eyes have been opened to. I wonder how many people do that to make something happen.

wow, i hadn't thought of it that way. i've added to my orignal thoughts but have always identified myself as the OP. hmmmm sneaky is right!

What? I don't understand what this is about. How can a poster have different voices?

for instance- say i start a thread, then later i comment again pretending to be just a regular commenter, either to fuel an argument or agree with the original post.

why are there so many silly topics like this on Pt when we should be talking about ways to eat healthy and trim fat?

12:31 I don't understand why you would do that. Don't you work or have hobbies? There is plenty of other stuff to do besides making a topic and then commenting about it like you were different people. Have you ever thought about seeing somebody for this problem, like a doctor I mean?

whoa, slow down with the insults and holier-than-thou questioning! the 1231 poster was merely explaining the premise of the OP's question.

I confess

I have done this, but not to be sneaky. I just think of the first post as being the topic or the question and the rest of the comments are responses.

It's like taking a survey... you ask the question the you give your answer as the first response. What's wrong with that?

12:31 here-
thank you for the jump to my defense 3:39, i was quite thrown off when i read that insult! i was merely explaining to the people who didn't understand what this thread was about. i don't post threads then fan the arguments. wow.

I'm the one who thought you were saying that yes, you do it and this is why/how. I apologize for misunderstanding, and I really was not trying to be mean or insult you. I thought you were saying you do this game thing and maybe you needed to talk to a professional for help. I was only trying to offer helpful info. Sorry.

I just had this thought that maybe there is only one other person besides me that uses this forum and they are posting everything on here execpt for the few comments I make a few times a week. It's a funny thought. :)

It would be especially funny when they get in arguments with themselves.

to 253/701:

it's nice that you apologized, but the demeaning tone of your original post is NOT what PT is all about. if a person chooses to entertain themself by logging on with different "voices", it's not very polite to suggest that they may need professional help or have nothing better to do or have no other interests/hobbies! maybe what entertains someone else is strange to you, but that's no reason to belittle a person and presume there is something wrong with them. i think watching tv for hours is very obsurd and i don't understand how some people do it, but i would hesitate to point a finger and tell anyone who enjoys that much tv that they need help...
