Smallville fandom: heads up!

Sigh. I'm doing this because I think it's the best thing I can do in the circumstances, but I hate the entire situation.

As most of you know, althea_astrea reactivated her journal earlier this week. toadstoolsmiles and aelora have both posted very damning IP address information that indicates that she's been using several identities and telling conflicting stories about herself.

I understand how confusing these things can be. We all have to form our personal opinion under these circumstances: mine is that there's probably a grain of truth in some of her stories, but I don't think it's constructive to allow her to continue to spread lies. I think she's ill and needs medical care. I don't want to see the situation extended in our fandom. Consequently, I posted this comment to her. I'm linking to it because I think transparency in this conflict is important.

I'm not going to appeal to anyone not to believe in her. It's not my place to do that. I'm just posting this so you all know my personal views and can make up your own minds. Believe it or not, I do still wish the person behind this well--they need help, and I hope they get it, for their sake and ours.

ETA: toadstoolsmiles's post is here and aelora's post is here.
