Yeah. I tried to post relatively realistic ones. But some people are definitely treating it as a joke, suggesting stuff that will definitely not happen!

I’m guessing that ”LWT Fan 1968” is a parody account or they are deliberately trolling

Use an old ITV regional name to get people on side but then post deliberate drivel.


Regarding the 2021 predictions thread, I can’t work out if people are posting ridiculous or weird stuff as a laugh or if they are being serious

I now regret making a serious post in that thread for the first time in all the years I’ve been a member.

‘LWTfan1968’ is just a kid in America who watches our channels on online feeds, not a troll, but might as well be

It's a real case of Poe's Law for some of the posts in that thread. I'd say it's a mixture of some (largely older) members taking the piss and some (predominantly younger) members being painfully earnest while not understanding the distinction between prediction and wishes based off of little understanding of branding or the television industry.

That BBC Select thread just makes me want to scratch my own eyes out.

Yes, sorry for starting it. I'm almost dreading posting things now in case it triggers Roger and LWT Fan to start writing unbearable five word posts in reply.

Interesting topic ruined by the majority replies.

Darthwell constantly posting his predictions is just as bad as LWT-ex-fan (who I'm sure will be back shortly under another guise).

Honestly don't understand why you need to post twice to the same thread obnoxiously. Forum etiquette is something Roger doesn't understand.
I'm that guy from that forum. No, not this one.
