A friend of mine had (and maybe has) a story in his head about a page that I wrote several years ago in which I told specific details of a night out a page that got him into trouble with his then-girlfriend... a page that I didn't write.
I think that she put the idea into his head.
She knew of "mistakes" I'd made, writing about other people and she knew of supposed controversies that were not based upon my mistakes at all... and she used these.
The first time he told me about it, the story that my friend told was that she had read about where we had gone, what we had done, and how late we'd been out and that I had used his real name.
The second time he told me the story, Paddy had seen the page himself. In this version, he also implied that I'd written about us having a smoke, illegal in the country where the supposed events happened.
I pressed him for details about the "page" that he had "seen." He had none.
I think that this woman had simply put the idea into his head. She's malicious.
I think that she'd either put an image into Paddy's brain by sheer dark-side power of influence... or she made a page that she was able to present to him as mine. That's easy to do, within the confines of one computer. But I doubt she bothered to do that. I think she just imposed upon him the shadow of her malevolence.
I think that she just manipulated that part of his brain where she had influence, and that he felt he had to confront me just to appease her.
Maybe I'm wrong.
But I know that I didn't write any such page, and I know that she knew that.
