Some woman has been writing me the past several days asking to be taken off my site because she’s not missing anymore. I actually removed her years ago, I believe. But the casefile, when it was on Charley, was copied and pasted by others to various different forums and websites and she wants me to remove THOSE. I have explained, very patiently, that I’ve got nothing to do with that and can do nothing about it. I hope she understands and doesn’t go off on me. This is yet another reason why I don’t like people copying my stuff nilly-willy.

The people that write to me sometimes are, well, unbelievable. One woman asked me to remove her daughter’s casefile (she wanted closure or something, I don’t know). She sent me five or six emails in less than 24 hours, each time growing more belligerent. By the third email she was threatening to sue; by the last one she was using a lot of capitals. Accused me of ignoring her and demanded to know what my problem was. I wrote back asking what HER problem was that she couldn’t give me even a day to take care of this, and no, for her information, I wasn’t ignoring her, I was offline eating and sleeping and reading and watching movies and doing all the other things I do with my life. Shocking as it may sound, I am not on the computer 24/7. She wrote back again, as if I hadn’t written her at all, once more accusing me of ignoring her and being insensitive and inconsiderate and what have you. What. Ever. I did remove the casefile the next time I updated — about 30 hours after she sent the first email. Which would be fast enough for anyone except her.

I try very hard not to judge people with missing family members, even when they act inappropriately, because I know they are under stress I can’t even comprehend. But sometimes they really try my patience nonetheless.

    Don’t engage with these kind of people. They just want attention so if they keep after you after the first reply you need to block them and ignore them.

      It’s no different than that Joanne person accusing me of being a leech on society.
