    Not that I read the sun much, but has anyone every seen the dear deidre section where people send in problems, mostly relationship problems and deidre will write back with some help and it is all posted in an article. You know the agony aunt/advice bit. Anyway most of the stories you see sent in are incredible. I mean really messed up, so much so they clearly look like trolls. I mean it is actually hilarious to read some of them because they seems so trollish. For example todays one a girl that is 16 and her boyfriend is 24 wants him to stop having one night stands and calling her useless and also he hits her. Also he hates her gay best friend because he thinks she is cheating on him with the gay best friend. Oh and she is worried that she is pregnant with her gay best friends baby because they actually have had sex. She just wants her boyfriend to love her. LINK

    Or this one where the headline states:

    "My stepmum is cheating on dad with my older brother and me"

    and the first few lines say:

    "MY new stepmum seduced me and has promised more if I don’t tell my dad she’s been cheating.I’m a 16-year-old lad. I have always been close to my dad so I feel guilty but I can’t say no."

    Some of them are worse. But the response is even better, the fact that they respond to this and take it seriously is hilarious. I mean clearly it's a troll, either that or or the people that read the sun are seriously messed up individuals without half a brain between them. :rofl:........................ oh wait. :pierre:


    No but seriously, they must know they are being trolled.

    I love the bit where they put a photo of "Tom" and underneath in small grey text it says "posed by model" sounds like they just made "Tom" up!!

    Oh dear God.

    You do realise that the stories in Dear Deidre are made up by the editor and they're not actually real? Did you actually think these were real problems that real people had sent in? LOL.

    My mum's friend was a journalist who used to write them and they'd have a right laugh together making up the stories.

    You've just been trolled by the trolls that don't exist...

    Accodring to it's wiki page it's real. Or rather the sun claims that it's real. I never said they were real problem I even state in the thread title I think the sun is being trolled. Everyone else seemed to grasp this point before even entering the thread.

    But of course your mums mate works there, how convenient.

    A page on Wikipedia says it's real so you must believe it!?

    Your title suggests you do believe that people write in and the print the responses..

    You obviously did think they were real...

    I worked in this for work experience, at the place that does 'Take a Break' etc (They all come from the same office).

    They genuinely make the stories up, though they sometimes base them on things people send in. If they're made up they don't have to pay anyone.

    Stop trying to backtrack
    Are you really an idiot or have you just not bothered reading my post. I have clearly stated my stance in my op, i state numerous times that I think the the posters are trolling. I even say at the end No but seriously, they must know they are being trolled.


    Secondly it may just be wiki but but so far I have backed up my theory with a source. You haven't.

    It is very plausible it's all made up as well but clearly you haven't understood the point of my post.

    I don't need a theory because I know the truth that they're all made up..? You're making yourself look sillier and sillier post by post...

    You know the truth. Ok prove it.

    It may well be all made up. I was merely posting the idiocy of it all and suggesting that either the sun doesn't know it has been trolled. Or that they do but still post it. You decided to come up with some claim that I thought the posters were real. Never once did I suggest this. Read the damn op.

    I've heard that the Sun actually employs the best journalists in the industry. That, or they have the best-paid journalists.

    Did it never occur to you that they make the stories up?

    You might just be very cleverly trolling us.

    Aww, leave them alone, they're happy in their minds thinking; "this is world-class news!".

    But as OP, it's pretty funny, trolling has gone out of control. Hilarious.
