Some of my elderly relatives don't have a clue about computers and, therefore, have no access to the files - my auntie even mistook mine for a microwave! They are of a generation who much prefer books anyway.
Given that the media have ignored the PJ Files, many simply do not even know they exist. Im hoping that, once they start reading what the press have kept from them, they will be as hooked on this case as us. Lets face it, had it not been for the internet, we would have been drifting around, most likely ignorant about the files.

Funny how different people can be.
My mum's 75, M-i-l is even much older and both are quite good at using a computer.

See I wouldn't wish being hooked on this case on my worst enemy, let alone people I care about.

But genuine question....once they become hooked on the case, what comes after that?

I still don't understand the end that all these leaflets are supposed to achieve.....yet I have a feeling that they are supposed to be achieving something. Nobody seems to be able to answer this so maybe there is no end goal....

help?

Public perception of them these days isn't good.

That is simply your opinion Autumn.

Not just mine.
How can any one of us claim to know the opinion of the general public en masse? - Has Jesus logged on?

If he has, I reckon he should give a hand at moderating thumbsup

At least he'd provide us with a decent lunch. I haven't been offered so much as a vol-au-vent since I've been here.

The lack of a buffet has not gone unnoticed.

I have often wondered that myself as the mass leafletting apparently did no good and sending the book to MPs has produced no discernible results so far.

As for the jogging and exercise etc. Have you ever heard of a GP prescribing exercise or going to the Gym? let me tell you it happens. I'll leave you to find out the benefits of exercise on both the body AND mind. Im sure you know anyway.

NO normal parent would be any fit state to going to jogging however much a doctor might advise it.

She thinks the McCann's are guilty as sin and are involved in someway in Madeleine's disappearance and possible death. I tended to do a Bunnie1 on her by reminding her that she might not be getting all the facts, afterall we all know that papers only print what sells papers.

I see it mentioned a lot that the files are there available for reading and the files, like the dogs, don't lie and should be viewed as the new St James version.

I honestly think that us folk here are in the minority and that most folk probably go about their business without giving a monkey's armpit about reading the offical files. There are probably millions of people just like my mum who do judge by the contents of the last news programme, todays paper, good old gut instinct and her own feel of what is right and wrong.

My mum hasn't and will never read the files - does that make my mum any less entitled to an opinion than you Bunnie1? The files have not proved conclusively what happened to Madeleine that night so maybe, for now, my mum's gut instinct is as close to the bulleye as they are. Even with their offical files it appears that the State of Texas might have got it wrong doesn't it.

Take care

And given that we are all expressing an opinion, none of us can say whose opinion is wrong and uninformed. Only the person/s responsible for the disappearance of Madeleine can do that.

The way I figure it, if you're going through that kind of hell you should be allowed and forgiven for doing whatever the hell you like.

What do you consider to be appropriate activities that you would allow for other people going through their own private hell?

Is it a forum myth or did Gerry actually play tennis a few days after Madeleine's disappearance?

No idea - there were a lot of things that the McCanns were supposed to have done but didn't. I do recall reading psychological advice for parents in their position - something about keeping themselves afloat by doing normal things like exercising and jogging etc.

I have no Idea Autumn - does it mean anything if he did? Would it mean more or less if he'd have locked himself in a room and rocked backwards and forwards for 24 hours a day?
