I want to say I appreciate those of you who have supported me and defended me from these ridiculous accusations. It made me feel a lot better to realize not everyone had decided I was a despicable liar. And anyone who still believes I made up this story, or that I filed a false report to the police, can go and soak their head.
I think it’s significant that the day I offered the police report up for view, the accusations suddenly changed from “lied on the blog” to “lied to the cops.” These people do not want to admit they were mistaken. (Incidentally, so far no one has asked to look at the report. And I don’t think anyone will. But it’s still available for viewing; all you have to do is email me and ask.)
But it’s not them I have to convince but the police and later a jury. And the police are already convinced. That’s why I allowed the nasty comments to appear on my blog and didn’t really lose my cool about it: what those people think of me really doesn’t matter. But enough is enough: I have defended myself as best I can and I will not do it anymore. Nor will I tolerate any more insults and attacks on my character here. Any more such comments will be deleted.
I wrote about the attack on this blog for the same reason I wrote about my pet rat dying, or that day when I found a dead fly in my milk glass — because I wanted to share some details of my life with you and thought you might find them worth your time. If you don’t want to know these details, or don’t believe them, or disapprove of them, you don’t have to read about them.
I would like now to return this blog to the topic for which it was created: missing people.
