All the people who are judging me based on one persons opinion should really think about the fact that he tells and shows you what he wants you to see and hear. If anyone would like to see the PM's that he sent me and the responses I sent him, please PM me. I will be glad to show you. He criticized me while I was trying to do the only thing left to do, ask for help. I was encouraged to put a post updating my situation from 2 respected community leaders who are trying to help me out. That is what I did. I had not posted anything about this in the last month prior except to answer one persons question. He shows you the last response to one of his PM's that sounded and actually was in very poor taste. But after all the name calling and accusations he made of me in the other PM's I finally lost it. He has had some sort of vendetta against me for a long time. Just search older threads and look at some of his responses to me in the past. I may be a lot of things, but I am not a liar, scammer or crazy. I apologize to anyone offend by that private message that Shane felt the need to show you. I refrained from showing the one ones he sent me, But as I said I will gladly show anyone who wants to them, just ask.
He, for some reason is simply trying to make me look like a bad guy. Don't be sheep and believe everything he tells you because a lot of it is complete BS. I came hear to ask for some help in a time of need, from a community of which I have been a part of for 27 years. Do I know that other people have it harder than me? Of course, I never suggested any different. Do I know that most people are having their own problems? Of course, I never suggested they didn't. Did I demand people give me money? Absolutely not in fact I made it quite clear in almost every post that if you had a few extra buck to help, I could really use some help, that's all. I do not know what is so horrible about that. I only became defensive after I was being criticized and called names like anyone would do. In my update I made it perfectly clear that this would be my final time posting about my situation. But Shane just could not let it go. He still can't let it go. He continued sending PM's and posting how much of a con man I must be, even after I asked him repeatedly to remove the entire thread if it was upsetting people. As he keeps telling everyone, he has the power to do so but is choosing not to. The only reason is to keep spurring on hatred towards me. I am not the one who won't let it go. He just seems to always need the last word.
I am sick. I can't work. I have tried everything I can to help my own situation. And simply asked for help from anybody who could. Once again, I ask Shane, Larry or who ever else has the power, to please remove this thread so nobody has to be hurt or offended any more. And if the powers be find that I am such a horrible person that deserves to be removed from this site, than I guess I will just have to accept that as well.
It would be nice if some of the people on this board who know me and my real situation could please stand up and make a post on my behave so that people do not have to believe what Shane is spouting off about me. Please someone tell the truth about my conditions and my abilities at this point of my life. maybe the vendors who asked me to post the update or anyone of you who I personally know. If not I understand that you don't want to get involved and be shunned by the community.
In any case, I still appreciate the people who have helped me and who have wished me well. I hold nothing against anyone except someone who has made it his person mission to cause me ever more pain.
