ETA: Just to clarify something: I feel responsible for bringing Project Download to people’s attention, and therefore I feel responsible for finding out what’s going on now. That’s my angle here. If I’ve been misled and have, in turn, misled a ton of other people, I’m pretty much never going to be able to help anyone else on this kind of scale again. I mean, just in terms of sheer accountability to y’all--I will never be able to justify dragging everyone into it again. So I need to know. It’s my hope that Erin got tired of people asking if she’d had her surgery yet, when she herself was also frustrated that she hadn’t been able to have it; she’s gotten upset and deleted things before. But as for “living under a microscope,” when you ask for help from people, there’s a certain amount of accountability they deserve in turn. If you’re telling the truth, you have nothing to fear. If Erin is reading this, I just want to say to her that if she is telling the truth--I know being questioned constantly has got to be tiring and demoralizing. But most of us involved with the project want to know out of concern. People who have given you support just want to know if you’re okay, or worse, or still waiting, or what. We’re emotionally involved now, that’s all. And I don’t want to doubt you--I just have to consider every possibility, because I have people who deserve accountability from me.
