There are very few people in the world who I don't have sympathy for. They are the ones who constantly lie. It's funny in the world of internet forums that some people just can't put time lines together. When they lie (or tell 1/2 truths) one day then post something in addition, or in contradiction to it just days later makes the 500+ other people reading them shake their heads in disbelief.
But, on some forums you're not allowed to call someone out on it either. It's called "not being nice". Sometimes it'll just get a post deleted, but if you're REALLY not nice it can get you booted from a forum.
Several people have asked me about a post of mine that was recently deleted in response to such a thread. I'm a little irked that it was pulled, to be honest. If a person is going to publicly lie and contradict themselves then they should be prepared to be called on the carpet for it, especially when they're now whining because life isn't going as they planned and things are tough. Yeah, finances are tough for everyone right now. I don't know one person that hasn't been affected. Most of us are just suffering no matter what we do, while others just plain do stupid stuff to make it worse for themselves. When you play grown up games, and make grown up decisions, you have to suffer the grown up consequences. Pull up your big kid underwear and deal with it.
