Who are all these people who read blogs?

I don't even

Heh. Probably the same people who fall for all the "Help a Farker Out" threads.

Is she engaged to a Backstreet Boy, too?

That is one seriously epic troll. Goes beyond troll and into the murky waters of nutjob attention whore psycho, though.

Just goes to show you that you should never take anything on the Internet as face value. I learned all about that during my years as a secret agent millionaire inventor and Nobel prize winning scientist.

CLEVELAND, Ohio - J.S. Dirr's many followers on the Internet knew him as a dashing Canadian Royal Mounted Police officer and a prolific blogger who detailed his playboy lifestyle, fathered 11 children and married a trauma surgeon.

rofl. This turned out fake???

I`m not so much of a creepy ghoul that I would want to follow a blog about a child with cancer or tragic events of another persons life.

And I`m quite a ghoul, just not a creepy one...

Someone using the anonymity of the internet to post insincere shiat on the internet and provoke a reaction?

Thank God we have the haven of FARK, where this could NEVER happen.

Lets face it, you either be a surgeon or have 11 kids, only a woman would want both. That should have been the first clue. Also, who is a playboy, married, with 11 kids?

That was such a horrible reality movie, topped off by the main character showing off HIS tramp stamp. Even though he claimed to like women. Okayyyyyyyyy...

bingo. a playboy by definition is a fellow all-consumed with ensuring his and only his happiness is priority #1. good times, alcohol, drugs and women. no wife. no kids.
a decent playboy won't work. that would bite into fun time.

Hang on... the family supposedly lived in Saskatchewan... but text messages went through a Toronto number?

I guess everyone just took it for granted that the area code was "Canadian", and never bothered to look it up out of curiosity.

Yeah, geez. The only way to make it more obvious would've been to say the fake guy's wife was Morgan Fairchild.

PlatinumDragon: Hang on... the family supposedly lived in Saskatchewan... but text messages went through a Toronto number?


My cell phone number maps to Dover DE, my Google Voice cell number maps to NYC, and my landline (VOIP through a cable modem) maps to DC, though all three are registered to the same address. I literally have no phone numbers at all that map to my own state.

With so many phone numbers being mapped to the location of the carrier rather than the customer, a non-local number isn't nearly as much of a red flag as it used to be.

She had all the time to create and live this faux life and go to med school. I'm impressed and sorry she had to believe there was a hole in her reality to be filled in such a bizarre way. Because had she just focused her energies on getting her MD the world might have gotten a great doctor.

Wright had come across the story of Dana's death on MckMama Without Pity, a blog dedicated to criticizing mommy blogger Jennifer McKinney (mycharmingkids.net).

FFFUUUUUU. The internet is such a god damn circle jerk half the time, and I'm convinced most of the people on it are complete lunatics (including "mommy bloggers" and their devoted followers). So, yeah, stories like this don't surprise me at all. Fakes like this are exposed practically every month at this point. Cancer is usually the initial hook, and then it gets worse.

The sad downside is... if you really DO have a tragic tale to tell on the web, a lot of people won't believe you. Of course, you probably won't be making ridiculously over-the-top claims that seem tailored to get and keep people's attention. Real tragedies tend to just be "I'm unemployed, my wife's an x-ray tech, our child has cancer, she gets better and worse". Pretty ordinary, like most of our lives.

It still might, nothing she did was illegal.

I don't believe half the pitty party stuff on Fark. Except the little boy who got hurt by the rock. But then I couldn't read any of the follow up because of all the god saved our child stuff.

I even emailed Drew one time about one of the fundraising efforts. He send me a snooty email and I decided not to donate. Gods forbid someone ask a question before they throw some free money your way!

Wasn't there a girl who posted a blog about her pregnancy and the baby dying after it was born only someone figured out the picture she posted of the baby was in fact a very lifelike doll.

The takeaway is - men will lie on the internet to get laid, women will lie..... to live out some fantasy life or get attention? Men are far from perfect but at least you know what's going on in their heads, women are just crazy.

Also how hot is the college student? It's requisite knowledge for my level of outrage.

The sad part, of course, is that such frauds make it that much less appealing to help out strangers who may actually need help.
