What happened to the posts? Is he okay?
Hmm. . . .
I wonder if you can completly remove a post and all it's comments if you were the original poster.
I don't know -- but everything completely disappeared. Is that what you think happened? That's WEIRD! Has anyone else noticed that the post has completed vanished?
Maybe the guy who sponsors the site did it for liability purposes???
you can go to he dashboard and view the posts. If you are the original poster, you can delete the whole post and comments.
go click on login, then it will take you to the dashboard....click posts and there you go...
I really hate to say this, and you'll probably think I'm a horrible person, but I'm going to say it anyway. Reading that whole thread brought out the cynic in me. I've been online for ten years now, and I've heard weird stuff and sob stories enough times to have a red flag instinct that makes me wonder if it's true or not.
Oooh, For a moment NJWabbit that thought crossed my mond too. It was just too weird you know. But weird things happen all the time. Maybe we will never know.
na, wabbit, I don't think you are horrible. Whether is it true or not, i couldn't pass up the option to bash raascal for being an ass.
LOL MNolen!! You don't need an excuse for that.
yeah, but I feel better about myself if I have one, rather than to go bashing sporatically(sp?)...
I showed it to my husband, who agrees that is was very suspicious, especially since, in order to post, you have to be logged in. MissLisa, I was wondering where you'd gone to -- I haven't seen much of you lately! Hope you're okay!
This is mainly MY computer, so I have the keep me signed in thingie on. I never have to sign in, just click the link, same with email, and other stuff.
NJWabbit, It looked hokey to me too and I've been online since '84 when the net was just Q-Link, Apple only, message board style only and no images. Q-link later became AOL and the net opened up wide to what we have today. I've seen a LOT and that one just didn't seem right. I still wanted to try and offer some help but that was also to try and smoke out any faking that might have been going on. Well, the guy didn't address more than one of the points I made and didn't seem all that thankfull either, almost miffed that he might have to try something to save his brother since I made some good suggestions. Did you see how he basically blew off almost all I said with one quick "that won't work" kind of statement? That clinched it for me. It was all a lot of hooey.
I read the post earlier today and did not have time to add my 2 cents.
I was about to go postal. Anyone that thought there was any truth to that post was being taken for a ride.
Certainly you noticed his post last week where he thanked Paula, and 2 others and made it sound like he was going away...Sorry, but I laughed at that one too....
acting today like he didnt know how to get places but was able to locate this site and log in etc....
but then all of a sudden, they found him....
It was a HOAX and the guy should be ashamed of himself.....
I'm glad some of you figured it out.....
Yep, I thought it was a hoax from the beginning and delicately said in my posts. And then I gave motherly advice because I really thought he, Jaze, was reading/writing out here still LOL Silly or not of him to do that, he obviously has issues and we don't really know what is going on so let's try not to judge. Yes it was immature but his immaturity was pretty evident to me in his previous posts any way so that shouldn't have been a surprise to anyone.
I ALWAYS judge when there's a "hoax" RavenDoD. Remember the story about the boy who cried "wolf"?
As soon as we accept people "hoaxing" us then we can no longer discern a real emergency from a phony one. There are people "hoaxing" that they are going to go blow up or shoot up schools all over the place ever since Virginia Tech. One happened right near here. And my son was put on a "hit list" at his school during "beat up freshman month" (my son's a freshman) - one kid had already been duct taped - hands and feet - and kicked while on the ground. I went Strait to the school and brought my mom who was a school adminstrator herself for many years. When we spoke with the vice principal, at once point he tried to say the incident with the other kid that was kicked while down on the ground with taped hands and feet was "in on it" that is was "just a joke". Now my mother is the least violent person on this planet and nearly jumped out of her chair to jump right down his freaking face at the very same time I nearly did the same. There can be NO tolerance, ZERO tolerance for such things. Not in this world these days.
Anyone in such need of help that they have to do what they think is "just a joke" but they KNOW will alarm a lot of people, take from our valuable time, from our time dealing with our own lives, our problems, the problems of others who actually need help, those people should just end it and I don't care if they do. Sounds harsh? Sorry if it does. I've seen it happen so many times it's not even remotely funny. Go try doing that to 911. Call 911 and play "pranks" and see how THEY handle it. You're ass would be in jail. Why then should any of us who are well meaning and caring people mean any less than the good people at 911 call centers? We have lives too. We have our own needs and the needs of our loved ones to care for too. We do NOT need to be wreckless taken away from any of that for someone's sick AMUSEMENT. That is PRECISELY what it was, the punk's own lousy AMUSEMENT at OUR expense.
Are you guys talking about Jazetopher saying he was going away or something? What else happened, I had so much yard work, I lost the thread that you are talking about. Last I read he was just making a joke about doing away with himself to teach silent a lesson, did something else happen? I'm going to search and try to find out...
