DO YOU LIKE X OR Y BETTER?!"
When you're on name forums long enough (I've been actively participating on various name forums for about 12 years), it's very easy to spot the fakers, and I tend to stay out of their way. I'd rather help someone who admits to not being pregnant (and isn't even thinking about becoming pregnant)... I guess because I can relate to that. My interest in names is not so much "baby names" as it is onomastics and etymology.Lucia

This is a very interesting topic. I've always wondered about it, but I'm only here off & on. So, it's not a huge issue for me.
I would like to say, however, as an almost 29-year-old woman who did not start using the internet regularly until she was about 13/14, if this site had been around then (or if I had known about it), I would have made up things all the time! A friend of mine & I were constantly making up "families" and names for our 8...10...12 kids. lol We would pour through name books and other lists. And we loved it! But I definitely would not have taken it as far as lying about health complications and whatnot. That is pretty terrible.
I think that, as far as the young teens go, it's harmless. They're just imagining what it would be like to be a mother of a bazillion kids and what their names would be. But as for those idiots who get honest members emotionally-invested in their made up life problems, they should go somewhere else, like to therapy. They're messing with the point of this website. And they're diminishing its credibility. Not cool.Nicole

I was a faker but im not now. I thought this was a sight for nerdy mothers, so i used this.
Now I lOVE it! I have a passion for names just like the rest of you. I hope we can forgive and forget.

I personally find it hilarious that blade has a whole fanbase. Does nobody stop to question the way she treats people or are we not speaking out because we're scared to get called out by her? I've been lurking for quite some time and, honestly, I'm absolutely fed up with her attitude. Blade-- do you really have nothing better to do then to put people down? I think someone has some serious self esteem issues if the only way she can justify her rudeness is by correcting grammar and people's English. It cracks me up how many loyal Internet buddies you've made! Again, do they really like you or are they scared?
