Wow cool! I got a personal response to one of my posts from the founder and webmaster of Reality TV World!
Hey, man, I agree with you - "Survivor" blows! I was never able to get thru more than an episode and a half of that series.
Oh wait... it was an UNFRIENDLY response to my post. Sarcastic and cutting and stuff. Hmm... sarcastic and cutting leaves little room for an apology... it's basically just an attack.
Hey SB, I'm putting in a complaint to the moderators about your post.
No, just kidding, I wouldn't want you to lose your membership.
OK, you said:
Na... why do that when you can pounce on someone and start throwing baseless allegations around.
The allegations were not baseless and in fact the base was clearly stated. The person claiming to be Ingrid said they were meeting at "Tim's bar"; Tim said his bar wasn't open yet on a live chat the next night.
That's not baseless. Your calling my allegations baseless is baseless. And the idea of my pouncing on Ingrid isn't even a subject that should be brought up on this board.
Going by probabilities, there is a larger chance that anyone claiming on the Internet to be a well-known personality is faking it than that it is really them. Yet you act as if it's heinous to doubt anyone making such a claim.
Before I disbelieved Original Jane I believed her - and posted a note to her. I took it in good faith it was Ingrid right off the bat.
I'm not the only person that later suspected we were being duped. And it never occurred to me that Ingrid would call a bar that Tim works in "Tim's bar". It would be like my calling the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall "my symphony hall." So I couldn't think of a benefit of a doubt to give her, until Esbea brought up the possible alternate meanings for "Tim's bar" - it was just hard to get to those after so much talk on the episode and in the chat about him opening his OWN bar.
So, something set some bells going off, like an over-rehearsed speech at an eviction ceremony, and I began to question everything. But I should have challenged her and asked her before I accused her of anything. I've learned from this and I am sorry I prematurely made an accusation before asking. This apology goes first and foremost to Original Jane but includes everyone here. I hope you can forgive me for being overly suspicious and not exploring all the possiblities for what appeared to be a discrepancy.
Original Jane a.k.a. Ingrid Wiese - I feel more like a schmo now than you ever did, or ever needed to. I humbly apologize, hope I didn't offend you too much, and want you to know that my feelings toward you are of nothing but respect, admiration and awe. You rock, girl, and you made "Joe Schmo 2"... well, you made "Joe Schmo 2"!!
