Stories like this are probably not unique but they do hurt the credibility of the internet as a place to learn. Precautions have to be made before you buy into or accept information from an online source.
Blogging is already not as popular as it once was so having some idiot make fake stuff so people can feel sorry for them turns off even more of the existing followers. When you read a blog its like you have to take it in as a novel.
