ONTD Political

Early Tuesday morning it was brought to our attention that koken23 was not who she was claiming to be, an accusation that was proven to be true within minutes.

She quickly released a statement:

"Jules is fictional. She's a character in a novel I've been writing - a younger version of the novel character - and I made this blog to flesh her out, to see if I could get into her head. Along the way, she became a sort of escape for me".

Thus, she was removed from her responsibilities as a moderator for not being real.

but literally, who was this person?

who, for real? IDK but I *think* she was the woman from Argentina (SA anyway) who moved to Australia, married an Aussie in the military who was then posted to a small town in England--she talked about having biracial kids and had lots of details like that

hahahaha seriously. we had like, dial-up, pay by the hour AOL when I was finishing high school, but even if I'd made an embarrassing Geocities website, it would have been deleted now anyway. thank goodness for being an adult in the era of social networking.

she was posting a lot of comments about how they were getting set to move to South Africa and that she was pregnant and due pretty soon. Her comments were pretty detailed too. She must have spent a lot of time working this shit out. I never would have guessed that it was all fake

OMG, I DO remember the story about her parents getting kidnapped during the military rule in Argentina. And her getting oddly self-righteous about it.

D: I'm kind of mad now that I remember her comments (specially the one of her parents being kidnapped)

Yeah, I didn't know Australian soldiers can be posted to England. Or South Africa! But maybe they can't. ;) It's the sort of slice-of-life detail you'd only expect from someone who's lived that life though.

Oh, I think I remember her now! Was she the one who talked on the gun control posts about how when she moved to South Africa she was going to need her guns to protect her kids from lions/baboons?

Lolol yes.

Oh man, I remember when there was a terrible story about an Australian army officer being...injured? killed? kidnapped in Afghanistan? (okay that part I'm fuzzy on)...but she posted about how this guy was a close family friend and she was BFF with his wife. Everyone was incredibly sympathetic.
