I actually was just coming to the computer to say something about that, to billiejean:
Basically, that I expected the calls of "this is fake!" to happen and for her to prepare herself for that, though I expected it would be a good deal more rude than how you put it (which was fine, I think).
We have no idea if this is fake or not -- many things set off my hmmm-meter as well. However, with these sort of situations, my perspective is that the consequences of dismissing something as fake (when it's real) are worse than treating something as true (when it's fake).
At the very least, if it's not true, someone else for whom it may actually be true may come across it later and get good information from it.
This one is a pretty rare situation so that particular aspect is less pertinent. But still, it just doesn't bother me much if something turns out to be fake (after a dozen years on internet fora, a certain skepticism is automatically applied to just about everything), but the possibility of someone who actually needs help asking for it and just being insulted does bother me, a lot. (Again, I don't think you did that, contrex, your comment was pretty straightforward.)
