Well, if Paul doesn't want to use the BettyBoop experience as the basis for a fictional story / novel, would somebody else like to use it?
It's actually very current; the risk of making online enemies is quite real, as we know from reports about Facebook attacks and those on other forums. There are even news stories about people on some forums, urging someone to kill themselves with tragic consequences.
Paul's experience could be a theme for a fictional novel about the very real dangers of the internet and how people's lives are disrupted or destroyed by malicious internet activities instigated by disturbed people. And sadly, people who hate are everywhere on the internet. Our forum doesn't need to be identified as it's a fictional story after all! The story would no longer be about Paul but about fictional characters instead.
I think it's a great idea. It's thriller material. Any takers, anyone?
