There's a lot of posts here that people don't believe, and rightfully so. There's a lot of fake posts. Whether this one was fake or nor, we'll never know. Judging by the fact the poster disappeared and never came back, I would say it was fake.
Yes, this is a place for people to learn, but lies don't teach.
And I agree with that- believing lies could do far more damage in the long run. What I had a hard time swallowing was the mean, degrading, insulting tone that the thread took on- the snarky little underhanded comments, the sarcastic & demeaning banter that was exchanged back & forth in front of the original poster. There has to be a better way to call out the posters that are perceived as fake. Like just ignoring them in hopes that they'll just move on? I don't know. I guess I felt bad for that one after a while because he really got attacked. If he was real & sincere, I don't blame him for not coming back. (If he was not real, good riddance.)
As has been pointed out, this thread is old. Whether it was a legitmate post or not, this thread has run its course.
