Do I need my head read or what?! First we have this new "racial posting" which nobody needs and then I see weird things about this Riana thing? I have been away by the sea (wonderful!) for the weekend - only got back this evening - perhaps you could fill me in on this Riana update thing?!

Much appreciated.


If it is all a fake - I feel rather annoyed having posted my feelings and support! but then maybe that's like many others who were also suckered into this!

a, you're not ENTITLED to ANYTHING from me. We are all entitled to an explanation from "Riana", but we don't seem to be getting one. From the moment "Riana" was seriously challenged to explain why she and someone purporting to be commenting on her, were posting from the same IP address, there has been a total silence from her, despite some fishy messages onder other names, from the same apparent source. If Riana was an honest and genuine reader, we would of course have heard further from her in explanation.
I don't see much value to any of us in continuing to chat about this faker. On a related point, though, the message that seemed to unravel the whole thing was when "Riana" posted a message, from the same IP address as "Riana" but under a different name, and claiming to have seen this woman in a hospital with her daughter, and to have recognized her, from a photo on the back of a book, as a very minor writer called Riana Scheepers. Does this seem to be potentially valid, or just another red herring ?
