    Default I feel used

    I have just discovered that Adam007 has been using us to get advice - probably for other people.
    He has not introduced himself and he has no information in his profile.
    He has started 12 threads and all 12 of them are in the Relationships forum.
    He has 48 posts, and they are all in that same forum.
    I feel like he is taking advantage of us.

    When he asked for ideas for Valentine's Day, several times I was tempted to share something really personal that my husband did for me, but then I chose not to.
    I'm really glad of it now, because I would now feel deeply betrayed.

    I enjoy helping people,
    but I don't like being taken advantage of.

    good! I'm not the only one suspicious of this person!

    can we ban him if he doesn't introduce himself and branch out or something?

    went through the posts, sounds like a random collection of other people's problems actually. Nothing malicious done so far as much as I can tell. Rarely returns to a thread too. Not certain the intent though.

    You should be a detective!

    Okay, subtle references notwithstanding, I obviously noticed the same thing.
    However, he seems more like a fairly clueless person from where I'm standing. Of course he could always be a fairly clueless person with a purpose.

    Ah, I just noticed the "how to meet girls" thread. Interesting.
    Not really.

    I think it's innappropriate to do as Adam007 has done...I believe one should make the effort to return to the posters on the forum in kind, by diversifying posting topics, answering other people's questions, and not starting new threads all the time.

    Also, this is MBTI central, not Relationship Central, which if there is one this person should be posting there since it seems all he/she/they want(s) is that kind of information.

    Yeah, Adam007 is a bot or something..

    It was pretty obvious when his gender seemed to flip flop between every thread he started.

    To OP: Sigh. Those are definitely the perils of giving of yourself online. You can't be totally sure of who you are talking to... nor of their real commitment to you. So we each have determine a safe level of disclosure for ourselves. (For some of us, it will be higher, for some lower -- the spot where you are comfortable having others know personal details about yourself.)

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    anyone else notice the changes in spelling, grammar and overall linguistic style between Adam007's OPs and such? or am I just a total nerd?

    I did not notice much... I read the threads a little bit... then I went around ignoring them. Besides the occasional read for laughs. Respond to them? I don't think so...

    A person who takes but doesn't give really does not belong in a community.
