I remember once on another forum this member staged her own death. She registered another account and pretended to be her husband coming on to tell us. We all believed it first, and the "husband" came on a few more times to commiserate. Then she slipped up; she accidentally logged into her old account and posted as the husband. She deleted the post almost straight away, but loads of people had seen it first, and seen her name in the who's online. In chat, she was tackled about it and eventually confessed that it had been staged. She wasn't banned; she didn't have to be. She was run off the forums in disgust by every single member of the forum.
