Thank you to everyone who told me the truth about flashman.
It makes me sick to think that someone can do that. I realise that the journal was not created for that purpose, but to let people believe that 'he' died on September 11 is pretty low.
I feel angry and betrayed that someone was able to affect me (and evidently thousands of others) in this way. I'm all for windups and practical jokes, but not off the back of one of the biggest terrorist attacks that the world has ever seen.
