First, Wasrad.....I am a mother of two teens. Mothers are special for what they had done and try to do. You raise your kids the best way you can. Hopefully, the knowledge, wisdom, advice you gave will be taken in and they outlive you. When I read in the papers or hear about a senseless killing of a teen or child, I do feel. As John Donne wrote: "No Man is an Island unto himself", that goes for women too.
As for Ratboy, I did receive your comments and thanks for the help/links. There are others who have also been searching and come up with the same. It does look like a hoax...a very sad, sick one at that. I still do not think it's Bosatsu, though...at least I am hoping it is not.
Yes, I do realize this is a stranger posting under Bosatsu's account, at first. Then the person registered under their own name and started posting shortly after. We are all waiting to see if this person comes back. The IPs have been checked. At Runegame.com, all registrations are finalized manually to prevent hacking and "spoofing" after what happened in early 2002. The boards were updated and secured shortly afterwards. Never had another incident since. This is why this is so troubling.
I am well aware hoaxes and false stories are rampant in the Internet. Just like making up Newspaper stories to fill slow day or listening to good "whopper" while getting your leg pulled. Nothing new. Yes, you do develop a hard shell and can become very cynical after several burnings.
I come to Blue's News to keep up on what is going on in the Gaming World. This is great site for what I need to know to keep up on all the technology. Get a kick out of the "etc." findings/links and post some of them in our own "misc." forum ("Biting the Shield").
So to whomever found and posted the Runegame.com topic to your "news" section, "Thank you". To all those who posted their thoughts about it, skeptical or not, they are appreciated.
