Disappointed

Sounds like someone here got caught being a faker after much concern and support from the board. I find this very disappointing. Yes, I know this happens on the internet, it's still disappointing to me that anyone would think to do this. Oh well.

On a different note, how is everyone doing with their present shopping and holiday preparations? I've barely started and need to get a quick jumpstart.

Well, it could be useful to the OP that the thread contained a lot of information about personality disorders.

I can't wait until there is more research out on what makes trolls tick.

ETA: To answer your question about holiday preparation, I am not even close to being ready.

Apparently, I was late to the game and have no idea what happened.


As for Christmas preparations, I'm nowhere close to being ready.

Mods must have mad detective skills or something. Only thing I can think of is maybe the IP address never moved to Canada from where it originally posted? Or they were able to match it with IP address they were using under original name? Something like that. I don't have made detective skills. Took a long time though.

As for Christmas, we don't buy any gifts for others or for ourselves. But I did complete our yearly charity donations today. Easier than holiday shopping, finding parking, or trying to make someone happy with a gift. Charities appreciate the donations & that makes me happy too. I do still need to do our Christmas cards & put up the tree though.

im curious too but matching IP isnt a good evidence... it can be faked... my current IP is masked to so other company, i can change locations to Texas or even France... Im hopin they did find something else...

So many of us fooled. So many of us leading our support and good wishes.

Why what's the point of posting a thread like that? Gawd.

Messed up.





As far as Christmas, I am making a solid dent. Decorations are all up. Gifts are mostly bought. Wrapping needs to start.

I admit I'd wondered about that thread from the very beginning - just smelled off. Too many pat cliche details or something.

Picked up a really good bargain I wasn't expecting to find for someone yesterday - and in the same place found something I wasn't looking for, kind of expensive for what it is, but so charming I couldn't pass it up for the same gift group. So I think I came out even there, heh.

Some people are sicker than others. Very sad that someone would actually go to the trouble of posting something like that and then keep up the act. It points to them being disturbed and is not a reflection on any of us for being deceived. If being a compassionate person means that I will sometimes be made a fool of, I am willing to take that risk.

The way I see it is if you are going to post a sad story, I say post in your own name. That is being truthful and honest. There are no new problems in the world. We all go through different things. I mean I have my own story that may be unbelievable to some. It is nothing I would post.

is there more to the "catch" than a remark at the end of a closed thread?

if this person was a sham,, wow what a good tale spinner.


we once ran into a person who was a very good liar........ sold a friend a horse (across country) & it arrived wrong breed & spray painted!!
she spun a tale of Oh, I'll send you complementing halter/blanket, yada yada, it was a nightmare..

It is heart breaking to know people do these things. People won't want to respond to someone who really is in need of people of just listening to them, because you don't know if they are being truthful.

I am glad it was caught before it could any further.

I am no where near ready for christmas. I am not even doing my normal baking for people. Hope they won't be to dissapointed. I have only purchased one gift for my family.

That thread felt off to me from the beginning--which is why never posted on it. I popped in from time to time though and she was awfully good at being consistent--I wonder what made the mods decide for sure it was fake?

For Christmas shopping, I am good except for a big gift for DS. OMG I have never struggled like this--there s really nothing he seems to want. His 14th birthday is 3 days before Christmas and I struggled to come up with that gift and am still wondering what to get him for under the tree.

It was so easy when the kids were little, I sort of miss those days
