Well I only read three paragraphs of the preface of this Reis book, came across this sentence and that to,d me all I need to know about it.  A load of hogwash, in short,

“Someone has already said that the truth of those parents has more force than the truth revealed by the "Messiahs" of monotheistic religions, Christians, Jews or Muslims”.

The apotheosis of kate and gerry McCann

Some may dispute that reading here.
'She ( Kate) did, she brought it up and that she, I mean, this is awful in retrospect as well, she asked what my opinion was on, erm, tut, on whether they were okay leaving the, the doors unlocked, because she was saying 'Is it better that if Madeleine wakes up she can get out and find us or', erm, 'or locking it and, you know, finding that we're not there and the door's locked if she woke up', because Madeleine had woken up, what I thought was the night before. Erm, tut, and it was in that context really, just asking, you know, what I thought. So it was obviously something that was on her mind a bit, huh'.

Because it is complete hyperbolic nonsense.
hyperbolic

adjective
1.
relating to a hyperbola.
2.
(of language) deliberately exaggerated.


I thought you supported Kate.  I think Kate was telling the truth through and through.  Because it is so current and we can see her lips moving I would agree with more "force than the truth revealed by the "Messiahs" of monotheistic religions, Christians, Jews or Muslims”

Is irony allowed under the rules of the forum?

You are the mod... The forum is full of irony or are you just trying to find some reason to remove my post

Trust me pal, there appears very little reason required to do that. I currently hold the record and I'm relatively moderate in my opinions.

Crikey.  I'm an ex-mod and I have no idea how one checks on deleted posts?

What's your secret?

Quick, before this post gets deleted!   (&^&

I don't really know, or indeed hold the record, but my posts just evaporate, usually when Eleanor's on.
I'm not really concerned, more amused, so I make light of it and have claimed the notional forum record.

Is that why you post count is relatively low?

Nah, I jest. It's a handful. Some notice or reason would be useful, but not essential.

Sometimes I discuss the reasons on the forum, like yesterday ad homs or today the issue of irony.   I hope you all learn from these discussions.  I certainly do.  Three years ago when I joined (July 09, 2016) I was always getting posts deleted and I had to learn how not to libel anyone.  It is not easy if you are opinionated.  I personally like your style as it is like my own, that's how I feel anyway.  So you might be having the same problem - libel.
