I think it's is really simple: no one likes being lied to. It feels disrespectful to the people out there who really are pregnant teenagers or parents of multiples with complications or what have you.Gwen: Film student, bookworm, and bad influence.

1) Yes: threads claiming to be about real pregnancies, especially multiples, nearly ALWAYS get more replies and attention
2) There is a very, very strong aspect of wish-fulfillment to this
3) ** It is no fun to concoct a fantasy identity unless you tell everyone all about it! That's why the pathognomonic sign of fakers is immediate, early over-sharing, in addition to implausiblility.**
Like augusta_lee I like detecting frauds, just cause. But I've stated before I think the predilection of faking [I don't call it trolling since is usually isn't-- fakers want to 'pass' and get attention/sympathy/congratulations on their excellent taste, no stir up trouble] is troublesome for two reasons:
- it detracts attention from real parents who want to name real babies, and need help- we waste time on the decoys
- it stretches the credulity of the community at large, casting an unfair pall of suspicion over real posters
