Commander Cyclops: CheekyMonkey: What a horrible story. As I sit here in my hospital bed, after my third nipplectomy (the result of contracting John Hodgeman's Lymphoma, after being bitten by a rabid Armadillo in the Outback in August of 2009)You think that's bad? I had John Hodgeman's, Johns Hopkins and John Houseman's at the same time. Thank god I found someone to help me get my money out of Nigeria to pay for the operation...
Need_MindBleach: Don't be angry that it's being pushed as a diagnosable disorder. Narcissism and psychopathy are diagnosable disorders, which, as the article states, are the two deviant personality types Munchausen most resembles.
Civchic: This happens everywhere. I've been a member of a particular forum for 10 years and we've had three or four really really GOOD trolls. One in particular - five kids, bad husband, stories of beatings and abuse - it escalates slowly and almost organically - as if they have the whole thing planned out in advance to roll out in stages for the most impact. It got to where this group (mostly well-educated women in their thirties and forties) was organizing a gift shower for money and gifts after the crazy ex set fire to the woman's home and they "lost everything". Until some suspicious people started doing some fact-checking. She was outed as a complete fake and the community really suffered for it for quite some time.

orbister: latent_ravening_ferocity: Just to sum up:If you have a horrible physical disease you're deserving of all the sympathy the world has to offer. If you have a mental disorder that causes you to spin horrible lies that destroy any chance of having a personal relationship or a stable life you're a troll deserving to be exposed and shunned.Just to sum up:If you lie, cheat, defraud, mislead and abuse you're a troll deserving to be exposed and shunned. If you do all that but can induce a psychologist to diagnose something pulled out the arse of DSM, you're deserving of all the sympathy the world has to offer.
cleveralthere: I stopped at the part about the goodbye letter to the breasts. Thats enough o' the crazy right there
ArmoredFelix: Only if people bit. The average netizen truly doesn't give a fark about such a farktarded story as this. "Oh watch out, anonymous people might not be telling the truth." fark this writer, fark her cancer, fark her crybaby shiat. My mother has been dying of cancer for 8 years, at least she doesn't cry about it.
rekraFlatoT: I do detest people like this Jan, Beth etc.I do love the internet but not all that it brings.
