It wouldn't be the first time someone had played that trick - created a
second identity to tout his bootlegs and support his own sales when
people gave him hassle. Makes me very curious, in all truth - but I'm
probably just being paranoid. The thing is, that person was also too
cowardly to say the things to someone's face on a list/site they were a
member of, but proceeded to bitch and blast behind their backs on other
Either way, I sincerely hope whoever this guy is isn't playing the
terminal illness card as a trick. I hate to say that, because it sounds
so cold and insincere, but I've encountered at least one person in the
Jem community who used pretend ill health and supposed medical bills to
get sympathy and people to spend a good deal of money with her on Jem
items before now...so you know, all is possible.
Regardless, whatever your opinions on something, treating other members
as people rather than obstacles is always a good thing! Everyone's going
to see things differently but there is never any excuse for that kind of
behaviour, whatever the personal situation ^_^.
