    Angry How sick are some people?!?!

    Apologies if this is a bit of a girly 'gossip' thread - but I am soooo angry!!!!

    I am a recent member of another forum dedicated to cat lovers - joined a few weeks ago for some help with my four feline friends. Like Vectra-C.com, there are members worldwide, but mostly based in the USA.

    There has been some recent interest in one young girl, only just 20 - had had a hard life, abandoned by her baby's father when only just pregnant and had found happiness with a chap who was prepared to take the baby on.

    Last week, he posted up, tragically, that she had died whilst having the baby - cue mass hysteria and mourning from all other members, including a donation fund being set up for a cat sanctuary in her name.

    Well, blow me - some members in Minnesota where she was from did some digging to try and contact the bereaved boyfriend to offer some support, and possibly attend or send a wreath to the funeral on behalf of the site - he cannot be traced - there are no obituaries, no record of her being in any hospital and no record of the baby being born. The whole thing is one sick elaborate HOAX!!!!!

    Is this sick or what?!?!?! Don't know any more details, but believe this is the work of a lonely sick individual trying to create a stir.

    Just goes to show how careful you have to be in what you believe online.

    That's pretty bad: I've heard similar, but that's taking it well beyond the point of exploiting people's better nature.

    Then again, you could own zero cats, and have five hamsters. I could drive a Corsa. How do we really know who people are online ?

    this is why vectra meets are important.....so you know that these people do actually exist!!

    sorry to be light-hearted, but it's very very sad of the individual to have to go to such extremes - but they must be in a pretty awful state.

    x2. Not the first time someone has tried this sort of cr*p. But I guess you get hoax gasmen calling at your door (esp. if you live in Eastbourne) so it's a lot easier on the net. I blame Corrie's Cilla

    However...

    Last year a biker forum (I'm a member of it) posted the death of one of our members; never met him (he was from somewhere in Durham) but a lot of the guys had; killed whilst out riding. His user name was Damage - now there's irony. Stunning wife; beautiful kids. One day he did the Bruce Springsteen lyric... "went out for a ride, and never came back". Anyhow, one of the fellow forum members, a copper from the west country,organised a collection, and made sure his widow got it. It's a pretty specialist forum, but his family got over £700 from memory. Okay it was a small forum, but it even had US members, and they all donated.

    My point is that it ain't all hoaxes & Cilla's... there are some nice people doing some excellent deeds.

    If I've got your interest up, and you're maybe curious / interested, have a look here: http://www.sv-portal.com/forums/show...366#post334366
