I was so believing till this. Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18237036
THAT part was
explainable as a quote of someone else. lol
I'm just shocked that anyone could read that post and not have every built-in lie detector go off. It was immediately obvious to me that it was BS...and believe me, it's painful to find myself agreeing with Holden (of all people) in a Sandy Hook thread, but that's what this one led to.
I still feel dirty about that, and it bothers me. My patience has been spent.
The OP was a liar, and a bad one at that. It was as plain as could be, and they should have been laughed out of here after 1 page. For those who believed him, you really do need to work on your ability to read people when you read their posts. There's a difference. I don't know how else to say it, but the OP's BS should have been over-the-top, red flags popping up, alarms going off, obvious from the start.
This thread has gotten attention all around the internet. The OP is patting himself on the back for causing that much of a stir, and laughing at those who believed him. But notice that he DID abandon his little game once he met with some resistance.
I do hope all are a little more discerning in the future when these types of characters show up. You've seen this joker in action, and now you're at least aware of one more internet scamming device. I saw the episode of the Andy Griffith Show that I linked when I was 5 years old, and all these years later I recognized the OP's modus operandi as being much too similar.
