Why...
Although it does anger me that someone would make such things up and cause a load of mess, she has some very real issues and that just makes me sad

I really liked her before. I didn't know her well or anything, but she seemed like a good and friendly person from what I had seen.

That's too bad that she felt the need to make up all these lies. And for what? I don't understand why people do this. Why do they sabotage themselves?

I just wanted to comment because I totally understand why people do that sort of thing. I've never lied about anything on DDN (or anywhere else for that matter), but I've been tempted to at times. It's not because I'm an evil mean person, or manipulative, or desperate for attention in a "I'm soo important" kind of way. For me, and it may not be the case for GypsieFree, it's because I want people to be nice to me. I want that sympathy, empathy, being handled with kid gloves behavior that's given to people when they're sick. That kind of behavior is learned - if you never get attention for positive reasons (accomplishing something in school, for example), you learn to "act out" or fake things to get it. Or if you're ignored and neglected at home, you're going to look to get validation elsewhere.

It's really not a malicious, manipulative act. I would highly doubt that she is sitting at home at her computer laughing at everyone here. It's sad she behaved that way and I hope she gets help.

It's classic "victim" mentality. Life is so hard, I am all alone, nobody understands me, I want friends...blah blah blah. Yes there are lots of benefits that people get from playing a victim role, but on the flip side coming from a role of "responsible" and being honest, true, and not blaming all your sufferings on situations or other people brings a lot of benefits as well. It is a choice, and when you choose to post untrue things on this website repeatedly and we gather enough evidence over a few different stories and time, you will be banned.

^I guess the thing I'm having a hard time with is that over her many posts, she seemed to be a kind person. Actually, genuine in her emotional expressions. I guess I'm going to miss her.

That is not to say that all the evidence gathered against her shouldn't be acted on in a just way. The integrity of this site demands honesty and there are so many times when people really go out of their way to give of themselves to others who need support it would be an additional insult to allow manipulation of honest emotions to prevail.

A part of me keeps hoping she'll explain herself and work it out with the mods and maybe re-join us as, "The Sadder But Wiser Girl".

And yes, my favorite imaginary friend is Pollyanna. And for a time, I missed all the bad boyfriends who broke my heart and left me feeling foolish.

Really!

Keep On Dancing*

I'm still having a hard time coming to terms with this. She seemed so sweet and genuinely caring to other members here. I'm so sad for her and I hope if it is what Heart described, or anything else, that she gets the help that she needs. I hope this wasn't her only outlet to get away from whatever it was that was causing her to do what the mods have evidence of. I hope she realizes that many of us are here for her, whatever she is going through, and hope she gets help.

Such a sad thing, however, not a shocker. I was probably one of her only DDN friends that had her on her FB friend's listing. Not sure though.

But honestly, before I even knew on DDN that she had been banned, I had blocked her on FB. She started acting all wonky and I didn't like the posts that were coming on my threads.

I feel bad because she was a lovely girl and we had great chats together, but this is not a surprise to me at all.

Are you kidding me?? That post was fake?? GAH, the things people will do on the internet for attention...I'm an attention monger, but even I don't make things up. I always post true stories. Geez. I was legit worried. MY boyfriend plays indoor soccer, so when she said he went into a coma from playing indoor soccer, I got a little paranoid! I'm always afraid of something happening to my boyfriend anyway, so it takes very little for me to be afraid of something happening. Geez.

I always thought she was legit, too. Bummer. :-/

Wow, I honestly thought she was genuinely nice! Her post about a cyst on her ovary rang true with me because I have suffered from a similar thing and was really sick from it. I hope she wasn't faking that too because that post really affected me!

Without going into too much detail I'm sorry for those of you that were hurt by her actions. I'm sure it's hard.

I've suspected her for at least 6 months (if not longer) of not being who she said she was ever since another member brought something she posted to our attention.

The thing about returning members is that no matter how careful they are being they eventually post something that catches our attention.....it may take awhile for us to figure them out BUT they always slip up somehow.

Wow, I never really picked her to do something like that. And I've had an instinct with quite a few previous DDN liars too.

GypsieFree, if you ever read this post, please know that honesty will get you much further in life than lies. The most important thing about life is to learn from your mistakes, and I hope you have. I wish you luck in your future despite your lies here.

Oh dear me...

You know that whole story I told about having a brain tumor...and having surgery to remove it...and being partially paralyzed afterward...and losing some hearing and vision and having ultra-drug resistant hypertension and other crap? Fake. All fake. Just seemed like such a good way to get some attention.


And this?
