Ask Mr Potato Head. Lends a sinister, psychopathic angle to the question.

I only realised this moment that this forum existed. A few people have told me to do an AMA thread and I thought they meant on After Hours. I did not realise it was an actual forum.

It does look like the forum could go either way. The Prison Officer thread was massively interesting. The PUA one not so much because it seems to me the OP had the idea that going out on the pull made him a PUA - rather than what most people think PUA means which is someone who subscribes to a fixed methodology of psychological manipulation in order to "pull" women. So that thread was a bit of a waste.

But much potential here - great idea - I hope it goes well. I have subscribed. Would love to see more public service people - from politicians to teachers and the like on here - were it to happen.

I am curious how the "verification" process works. It just says on the form to give your real name and phone number. How does this verify anything? Surely if someone is misleading you then phoning them and asking "Are you being honest" and them replying "I am yea" is not really going to be effective. Is there a further stage to verification?

I gave a screen shot of my ID card for verification. Dav has deleted it since the thread closed. That's how it worked for me anyway.

Yea, I ask for contact details and come up with a means of verifying. As Omackeral said, he sent me a photo of his badge, but I'll pick something straightforward as verification. Reddit's "post a pic of yourself on Twitter confirming you're doing this thing" is a useful idea, we don't need to be as public as that for everyone (or indeed anyone when I'm happy to have it simply sent to us in the office).

It'd be cool if you could get a convicted murderer to do one.

Lunchtimes are legendary. The Brandy and Cigars often take over 2 hours, and what lunchtime is complete without a cheeky lapdance or two.

I'm sorry folks, I've been ran off my feet, but we're actually awaiting word from our next participant. A very interesting and topically relevant opportunity presented itself over the weekend and we're just trying to get the details ironed out.

And yes, I realise what a total tease that is, I'm sorry.

Meanwhile, if I thought anyone had any kind of interest, I'd do one myself
