I have only recently become aware of its use.

is it an innovation?

If so ... why? what is wrong with Madeleine's name that it has been replaced with her initials?

It has been used on this forum for years.  You will quite probably find it dates to before I joined.
Ooh, a snowflake!

Is Vertigo Swirl your real name, VS?

Okay.  Cut this argument now.  These names are Internet Pseudonyms.

The child's name is Madeleine, but I have no power to insist that this is used.  Spoil it if you must.

d

None of us post under our real names.
I've no objection to my user name here being reduced to any shortened version nor do I imagine that any poster would object to being addressed in a reduced manner.
However the name of a missing child should never, ever in my opinion be reduced to initial letters.

Should I bridle at SIL?

Should VS bridle at VS?

Should Cheeky bridle at CM because it matches up with Clarence M?

But feel free to suggest your umbrage to John.  And please feel free to bridle as you choose.


I didn't notice any gut wrenching bridling at the parents who constantly called for people to look for a' little girl' or saying to news reporters 'a little girl' is missing- That really infuriated me. Talk about distancing yourself from the real victim in this whole sorry scenario.


One would argue that MBM is indeed a product, a cash cow for the greedy. As Brietta has opined about how much money everyone has made from A little girls disappearance- in particular Sr Amaral.  we are not allowed to say also the parents because that is different they used that fund for... searching   $6(&

Just another opportunity for the 'holier than thou' brigade to claim the high ground.
Not that it matters as MBM is not around to complain about its use.
I believe everything. And l believe nothing.
I suspect everyone. And l suspect no one.
I gather the facts, examine the clues... and before   you know it, the case is solved!"

Or maybe not -   Into year 13 and still no solution.

Can you clarify what you mean by " the holier than thou brigade"?
It's an expression which you frequently use.
Neither is Sara Payne nor Ben Needham or Jamie Bulger but I assume you would refer to those children by just their initials.

Oh ya just gotta laff...

Getting offended by calling someone by their initials is offensive- but leaving her alone everynight as the main childminder of her baby siblings - to be abducted by a gang of paedophiles to a fate we can't speak of...yeah  I GET the point -Not!

Interesting what MBM would make of her name being used like this- but if you lot want to take offence on her behalf... go to it - knock your self out!

I happen to have 3 parts to my real name.

If I got abducted or worse, and a forum was established re my case, would I find the use of my real TLA offensive?

What nonsense!

You are not alone.
MTI is sure good at making a diagnosis, or at least a stab in the dark.

John has instructed all moderators to take a very strong line with posters who constantly breach the rules of this forum.  This sniping, goading, name calling and other various forms of disruption will cease.

Whatís up?  Have you heard of PMs?  And I donít mean Prime Ministers.  Send one to John and he may grant your wish to challenge all the nasty mods on here without having your posts doctored.

Some posts have been unnecessarily aggressive and combative recently which is not conducive to constructive debate. By all means promote opinion and explore theories as long as such are based on facts and accepted understanding.

Finally, please keep posts amicable and informative at all times. TY.
