Here's the word from the truly scum-sucking Steve Lightspeed:
"Tawnee Stone is a fictional character that I created in 2001. I've always joked that when her site turned 10 years old, I would kill off her in a tragic accident. So I did. All my friends knew what was really going on. There is no big conspiracy to be found here. If you are offended, tough shit."
This after having posted in his original thread at GFY.com:
"Thank you all who posted condolences, but some of the comments in this thread make me sick. If someone told me that their friend had died, I would never say "prove it". Seriously, WHAT the FUCK is wrong with you people?
I said I would post more details when I get any, and I will.
So to anybody who thought Steve Lightspeed had any taste or credibility, you've been played along with anybody that cared about Tawnee. Everybody who thought Steve Lightspeed was a tasteless moronic piece of shit that would say anything if it got him additional hits to his websites, well you've been proven 100% correct.
