just because I don't agree with you does not make me a heartless bastard, you know. I actually have an infinite amount of heart when it is warranted. I just also possess a strong sense of logic and an incredible amount of intuition. When it comes to behaviours and such, my gut instinct is right about 98% of the time. I can read people, even through posts. and i may not always have anything hardcore to back myself up, but my gut tells me things and it is rarely wrong.
In this situation, my gut tells me none of the people - not the mom, not "amanda", not her "little brother" behaved normally. You say that this whole story is "just to real" to be made up...hmmm. i see details in the story, and a lot of people see details and automatically think this has to be true. But details are just a glamour. A way to pad out a story to make it seem real. In this instance, I get the gut feeling that the author of this story created "details" that did not fit the characters in her story. As a novice writer, and quite used to critiqueing my own work, it stands out to my eye. The pecan pie and venetians? nah. and a loving mom giving these to her kids to "sustain" them?? Not buying it. Bake them a casserole or two for the freezer, then you are sustaining your children. What the hell are they going to do with a dessert that will be stale in two days. That is not sustenance. The daughter, a grown woman, thinking to grab her mother's computer on the way out the door to go to the hospital? nah. The half grown son needing his mother's permission to have some of the "pie" she baked for him? Again, my gut says no, nice try by a struggling writer, but sticks out.
I am not heartless, I am just left with the feeling that I just read a sub-par story, not actual events.
But I know that different people would see it a bit differently. Hey, some people thought Twilight was a great series and a great movie, so there you go.
As a person with a talent for both intuitively senseing things, and for writing, I just think it is false from beginning to end.
But like I said a few pages ago, if i am wrong I will apologize...

I'm having a hard time holding back on ripping you apart but for the sake of the website I will. Rather than trying to calculate the story and break it down into probabilities why not try seeing it for what it is. Not everybody is a fake or phony, this person has a drive and is doing whatever it takes to find more information about his mother. He thought outside the box and tried to think of any possible reason for this happening to his mother. He checked his moms computer history and went where she went most recently because the title "abovetopsecret" stands out. Maybe her death was "abovetopsecret", that's the first thought that would go through a human mind when seeing the title. IAMJUST I need to speak to you personally, I can help you. Benefit of the doubt, this is true, contact me and I will help you. Continue doing everything you possibly can to ease your mind and figure out what happened. Your mother is proud to see you mind working

I guess if it took me less then ten minutes to figure out where my last posts were logged, doesn't mean someone else could. I think what the real issue here is that people are tired of hoaxes. I sure am and when something doesn't look right. I question it now. Sorry but this doesn't look right. If more evidence comes to light I'll look at it differently.
you can only get lied to so many times before you start digging in the information to find the real truth.
