Maybe, just possibly, perhaps, on your luckiest day ever.
Thanks, the police searched my flat when I was suspected of flashing. But the evidence proved I did not commit the offence. However they found my gun and took it.

Flashing? Not that as well?

corta, I see you are online again. Please PM me again as I can't remember what you said before. I am willing to communicate with you by PMs, although I would much prefer you posted on this thread about your experiences.

Do not worry that no one believes you, no one believes me either. This is a skeptics forum after all.

This kind of nonsense is why you lack credibility. You could simply go into your PMs and read it again.

Unless you chose to delete it which would be a really dumb move. And if you had even accidently deleted, it takes a special kind of thinking to post in thread instead of sending a PM right back.

Hence why we don't believe you, one of many reasons.

What are you on about now.

I read corta's post then it disappeared , I did not delete it.

In any case I want corta to post on the forum not PM me. But if that's what corta wants I will oblige.

Corta will not get any sympathy from anyone else here, that's for sure.

I think all you [snip] have scared corta off.

Corta's post is still there and visible to everyone. None of his/her posts have disappeared.

And I for one am quite happy to review any evidence corta provides to support his claims, and if he isn't a liar and the evidence supports his claims it would be irrational not to believe him.

I believe Scorpion is claiming that a private message from Corta disappeared rather than a post in this thread.

Yes, exactly, and I wonder if is not possible to edit a private message within the two hours time window, the way it is possible to edit a normal post, so as to remove most of its contents.

Try it, but I doubt it.

User error more likely.

You are correct, I received a PM from corta and briefly read it, then the next time I looked it was gone.

You do know that this isn't the way the forum software works, don't you. You've either deleted it, or imagined it.

I see you are not allowed to insult people here as my post was edited. Well I can keep it civil. I have criticised the Quran on a Muslim forum and not been banned, and I have posted on a north Korean forum without getting banned from there too, so I should be able to stay polite here if its a requirement.

To put my feelings in a polite way I remain (90%) sure that everything I concluded about my experience of telepathy is true, and I have never lied about anything.

I maintain I have experienced telepathy directly to me from the spirit world and it is logical that I did, because I was spoken too twice by a female voice in my head that I had never heard before. She told me I would win the lottery one hour before the live TV draw.
I won a five number win and I know the spirit world helped me to get the money for my first internet ready computer.

I may have clicked on the message, would that delete it?

No. corta wanted a tame audience and neither he nor you found that here. corta cut and ran, while you in all fairness hung in there.

corta is not coming riding to your rescue like some shining knight.

No, the problem really is that he does not know how how the forum works. I realise this seems hard to believe, but there really are people who are not familiar with the basics. That is not to cast aspersions upon them. I know sweet fanny adams about open heart surgery because I ain't no doctor.
