Sean Moore, Nick Jones, James-Dean Bradfield Facebook accounts

This is fan fiction of the oddest nature.. Why on earth would you pretend to be the band, and why are the record label letting them do this?

I guess so! Not sure if the band would really want someone making up an image of themselves & conversing with fans who believe it actually is them though.. I mean would anyone like that in all seriousness??

Most of the fans on there profiles are lapping it up, so I guess it's keeping them happy

I think most people would realise it's not really them.

The Nicky is worryingly convincing. Apart from the whole 'being on the interwebz' thing.

if he had a real fb account, and he posted there quite frequently, it would probably look like that.
I'm sure he's not that internet ignorant as he tries to play as in one of the recent radio interviews he said that he saw on YouTube that video from karaoke bar, with James singing ADFL.

Sometimes I do catch myself thinking it's all some strange double-bluff.

Or just Martin, bored.

It's a bit sad, but they're funny and reasonably clued up, it's a good game, if people think they're real, then I guess they're just thick, no helping that.

But Nicky's defence is he uses his mobile to text in his Facebook account.
It is possible to do that...
