Lane is upset that I am sceptical, and she wonders what sceptics want... All I can say to her is: if you're for real, then what I think and mean doesn't matter. You are what you are and do what you do, and what a cynic at the other side of the world thinks about you makes nothing to change what you are. However, we live in world where there are more than enough hoaxes, and somebody will doubt you at some point. To make a love-story public the way you two do might also become a strain, there are worse beasts than me out here. There are flamers, stalkers and people who will disagree with you and people who will want to make you both unhappy just for the pleasure of it. Keep your real names away from the net, don't spread your addresses around and stay safe.
