78. May I say something here?
I don't know you and you seem very reasonable and want to understand the situation. I can see that from your perspective it must look like we are all overreacting to what appear to be real and good-faith questions being asked. The problem is context. The OP has made incredibly ugly and libelous claims about me non-stop and not just here.

These are not good-faith questions. Let me give you a real life example. The person shows up with the claim: I don't believe Larisa that she met with the Connells because she said Mike Connell was flying back from DC and he was not, he was flying from PA. Yes, Connell went through PA air space if you really want to nit pick... he also flew through MD air-space... but his destination was Akron and his visit on the other side was DC. The point of this was not that Connell flew from here or there or what not. But that the OP was building a straw man and begins with "I don't believe Larisa..."

When that did not work. The OP tried another approach the "why would Connell or his wife choose to meet with you?" Now, do I need to tell you that not only is this a straw-man it is also a stupid thing to say? When I explained that "maybe it was because I went there." The OP's response was disbelief. When that failed, the OP began to make really ugly, false, claims about me and who funds me or owns me (depending on what you want to read into it).

And that was in one post a month ago. It has been this way no matter what is posted. Notice, now unable to say I did not meet with the Connell's, the OP now w ants to know something new, but the questions are structured as straw-men. The OP claims that they are simply trying to debunk CTs. Fine, why then did OP not write about my 3000 word article that does just that? Did not link to it, cite it, nada. Yet in this article and ONLY the section relating to me, the OP posts it twice.

The point is, the person is not interested in facts. They are interested in me for whatever reason and their questions - if you look closely - are designed to distort and confuse. They are not honest questions.

I hope that helps. If you still feel that Creaker is acting in good faith, I simply ask that you search his/her previous posts. They speak for themselves. And yes, they do matter as context because the person has an agenda and truth is not part of it.
