Loathe as I am to censor 21:11, I'm not publishing that! As much as I am prepared to put my head on the chopping block, I'm not actually going to point out the jugular.
I don't know enough about those allegations to publish them under my own moral guidelines of honesty and integrity. I have looked into those allegations as much as I have found necessary, though obviously not half as much as some. For them there is not nearly as much child abuse going on as they would like us to believe. Thankfully paedo gangs and predators are extremely rare, child abduction hardly ever happens and never in a small family friendly holiday resort like PDL. The McCanns had every reason to feel safe, what were the chances of a child being abducted? and what were the chances of a child being abducted by a man who looked exactly like her father? Those are spooky odds. Let's compare them to the chances of an unsupervised toddler wandering around a dark, unfamiliar apartment, hmmm.
But I don't want to get into any point by point arguments (just now), I have not published that article 21:11 or the results of that research because 1) It's been 10 years ffs, let it go, and 2) the effect that kind of research can have on innocent people, and 3) I find people who study numbers, logistics and outlandish theories a tad creepy.
I may not have the necessary psychology and criminology qualifications to pass any meaningful judgment, but I have a lifetime's experience of studying human behaviour. As a bold and up for anything kind of gal, I can honestly say I have never encountered anything that disgusting, weird maybe, but disgusting, never. I've only ever been to one orgy, and that was pretty much arranged by myself and best mate who's mum and day went away for the weekend and were daft enough to trust her. Unfortunately, the neighbour walked in, the boys were sent away and we were sent to bed. Sadly, our cunning plan did not take account of the fact that the neighbour had a key, doh!
But I jest, most people simply do not think or act that way and isn't it a bit odd, that those making such hideous (and freaky) accusations are led by fire and brimstone preachers? People who have no actual experience of the real world and want to tell the rest of us what we should and shouldn't be doing. Because as abstainers, they know better. I laugh as I type.
I know your post gave all sorts of links etc 21:11, but I am not going to add to the pain of the children involved by publishing such salacious nonsense. Imo, the people named have played a part, but not in the way you think. It's more complicated than that. For my own safety, there is much I hold back.
I don't claim to know what happened to Madeleine McCann, but I do know the Portuguese Police stopped looking for a live Madeleine in the late summer of 2007. Anything beyond that time has been part of the circus.
