    Re: Reid - Bachelorette 5

    I'm not sure I believe the hacking rumor. FWIW, in my non-professional opinion, those tweets sound like they were in his "voice". That being said, I don't really care if he wrote those or not, except to the extent that I think it's NOT COOL (as David Good would say) to hack someone's Twitter account.

    Friend of Reid, I'm sure if you're real you'll find a way to substantiate what you're saying. Nothing personal, I promise

    OK, thanks for letting us know. It was just a thought.

There are sites that you can search an IP address. If they have not used software to block or change the IP address you should be able to get the provider information (AOL, MSN etc.) and the location area of the user.

    I think I have all the quotes lined up ok!

    Soygrande, I was able to see where AvalonR's email originated from, the city was even spelled out in the header. Not that I'm going to do anything with that, so don't worry anyone.

    So, sonyab1974, can you try to do what GeorgiaReidFan outlined in the first quote in this post -- ". . . right click the email address in the from section up at top, and then click on properties, it should display the IP Address of the sender." If you can't figure out the IP address or city, then hopefully you can right click the property information and copy and paste it into a PM to either GeorgiaReidFan or me. And of course thank you in advance!

    I'm sure Gmail forensics tracked down the fake Reid but it would still be interesting to try to get some info on him/her. And it's keeping me occupied and not worring about Rafa's return to the court in about an hour!

    Who here is his biggest fan?

    What did you guys like about him?

    Too much drama. I am sure seeing positive stuff will make him giggle. Or at least seeing my post will. Haha.
    Though he never asked for them, the haikus were composed in sincerity and with great affection. He might actually enjoy reading more of them....?

    What did we like about Reid? What was NOT to like?

    Sweet, funny, vulnerable, smart, realistic, young-at-heart, family-centered, considerate, respectful, affectionate, self-effacing, honest - someone I'd love my own son to grow up to resemble.... Makes us old married ladies remember the joy of finding someone special.

    May all that he's experienced the past few months never tarnish the wonderful man he seems to be.

    OT: Reid is way cool but Rafa gives me chills when he plays some incredible tennis.

    I am trying to swing tickets to see him at U.S. Open.

    There is more to take into account than just the "voice" of the tweets. There is also the fact that Fake Reid was messaging Sonya, told her that he turned down Bachelor, told her that he was talking on the phone to a girl he liked, and was up until the middle of the night online...

    I have told Reid's friend that she can give me verification personally if she feels the need to and I'll pass it on to the group. I can't blame her for not wanting to put anything out here.

I came on before because someone told me about the haiku's. Sure, you guys have no reason to believe me, but I am just trying to look out for all parties involved. Reid is a nice guy who doesn't deserve someone going behind his back.
    Let me know if you'd like to see more haikus...I'm chock full of them!

    And I'm going to get my first glass of wine now. I can't watch tonight, even online, sober!
