I am not expressing an opinion, but I note:
No-one (unless I have missed it) has posted to say that they have actually spoken to Dan on the telephone.
Would anyone care to let us know what impression they had formed of Dan after speaking to him? Were they able to speak to Sophie?
Or his Mum?
There seems to be a silence and lack of support.
Did any of the advice include sending his UFO picture to a specialist magazine to see what they made of it?
Something someone more qualified than me might care to give an opinion on:
I found a post from Dan on a thread about David Icke in which he mentions being in the ATS chatroom on Saturday. In fact he seems to have spent most
of Saturday, after doing the RIP notice, at ATS.
I know myself from times when I have been grieving or very worried about something that I try to do familiar, mundane things to take my mind off the
problem, or just to try and feel 'normal' again.
I can understand anyone else's need to do that after suffering severe trauma, but I've never been coherent enough in difficult times to go on to a
forum or chatroom (to discuss totally unrelated topics).
It has been mentioned before about Dan going into different threads, I know.
On 8th July Dan was on another thread asking for Extralien to analyse his avatar. Somewhere in this thread, someone pulled him up on his use of it.
And using the name Dan Tanna. It looks to me as if that might have upset or hurt him.
It's been a long thread, but I don't remember Dan saying he had tried to get any expert opinion on what he says happened to him. There are UFO and
paranormal 'experts' all over the place and yet he came here for advice.
The above are things we DO know (anyone can check what I've listed) and it's easier to make an assessment going on his known behaviour, should
people want to.
I know which way I am leaning and honestly, whether he was actually attacked by an unknown creature, suffers a sleep disorder or is guilty of making
the whole thing up to get points, I feel sorry for him.
I think his situation is terribly sad, whatever it is.
I don't want to get into an argument about how hoaxers make life difficult for people with genuine experiences. I understand that entirely.
But look at what Dan's life might be like if he is a hoaxer - sad, as I said.
