In a sad twist today several writers at TheSpoof.com claim that they are being abused and harassed by members of the general public who seem to be, frankly, 2 sandwiches short of a picnic, a couple of slates short of a full roof, in other words, barking mad.
These sad and twisted individuals who seem to be of the "lights are on but no-one's home" variety have hi-jacked the general discussion forum and turned it into a war of words. Innocent Spoof writers, used only to swapping recipes and knitting patterns on their forums have been shocked by such witty, vitriolic phrases as "stop, you aren't funny" and " how dare you"
One detractor has claimed a tennis story wrecked her life despite never having read it.
One unnamed Spoof writer was today found sobbing after being pulled up for poor spelling by one of these uber-smart low-lifes. "Its Jimmy Connors, not Conners, I know now, I know now!" he cried before being referred to recently employed Spoof counsellors.(sic)"
Other writers, however, seemed puzzled at the claims of harassment, one commented, "I hadn't really noticed them actually, as I have a life."
