    This thread is actually the top hit if you search for "Ciaran Hinds Letter".

    Slightly odd.

    This thread is obviously a wind-up from Hurfdurf.

    Hurfdurf wrote that letter.

    Hurfdurf is the OP.

    Hurfdurf created the new signups (known as sockpuppet accounts) in this thread.

    Grimsby.. Cleethorpes.

    There onto me!

    Also slightly concerning that its getting mailed all over the country is it not?
    Check local cafe's and bars nearby ellie wouldnt suprise me if most shops in marketplace have one if there just mass mailing this junk

    Edit.. Theres someone who does a similar thing to request brochures of cars etc all the time i see it regularly come up, Nothing malitious about it they just send a odd letter like this and get a brochure sent out. Repeat yearly. From whats known there mentally ill

    I think it's about time we get the FBI on the case.

    Haven’t all the letters been received near the coast? Maybe that’s something to do with the blue sea part that’s written

    Never attribute deeper meaning to that which is adequately explained by an autist with a photocopier and the yellow pages.

    A few months back 8 houses on our road including me got a similar letter but it was from a janet wright and she was searching for some bloke with a german shepherd i(didn't narrow it down much as there are a lot of GS owner's where i live) i only read the first page and that did my head in funny\stupid letters seem quite common now though i don't understand why.

    I have also received this strange letter to my business in Boston Lincs! Stamp stuck in the middle of the envelope, unfortunately no post mark.

    Having worked a lot with people who have autism, this is relatively typical of their thought processes. Most people might not express themselves in this way, but she is not "crazy," "mental" and certainly doesn't need reporting to the police! She clearly has a particular interest in Mr hinds but doesn't have the social skills or filter to be able to express how she feels to anyone else so has gone for a scattergun approach.

    So I work in two churches in Yorkshire near Rotherham, got one Of these letters a couple of months back when it was sent to a vicarage, and just got another today as it was sent to my other vicar (wast delivered by the postman as he turned up after the letter was dropped off).

    Decided to look it up as the language they’ve used is the absolute trademark for code-words. Weird out of place idioms and things like that; “between the devil and the deep blue sea.” “I like cats.”

    Also the whole thing where she says her name is Sinéad in Irish and then says it’s Jane Wright?

    At first I tried lining up all the spelling errors to see if they created a sentence which was probably a bit extreme. :p

    So then I googled and asked a mod to reopen this thread haha

    Pls help
