    *shrug* whatever people get paid to do/call themselves isn't my business, my issue was the fact that the original cited article claimed that she was a total fabrication and people here were taking it deadly seriously.

    Sony did something similar with made-up critic David Manning for some of their movies, as well as other foul business tactics.

    Maybe she's a real journalist but not a real person, as in she's a replicant. Square-Enix literally created her. It's a totally credible theory.

    I love William Sanderson. That is all.
