Besides, I kind of have been re-evaluting what I believe and what I've experienced and realized that a lot of it is pretty 'out-there' by common standards. So, just because someone has a fleshed-out background, imho isn't a good reason to just assume they're a fluffy off the bat.
Just my 2 cents.
Yeah, true . . . usually, fluffs "out" themselves as fluffs before anyone else even gets a chance to.
As for more fleshed-out backgrounds, I suppose it depends on how they come by the information they have. If it's explicitly or almost explicitly through memory, at least without having these memories corroborated by someone else, then it could potentially be suspect -- simply because memory is not the most reliable thing by any means. I remember things in this
lifetime that never happened according to everyone else I've talked to.
For another example, in the past, I've come across one now rather infamous example of wishkin -- you know, the kind that gives the rest of us a bad name -- who was very public about her supposed "kinship" on LJ and other places. It was fleshed out with excruciating detail, all of which she "remembered" through meditation or "daydreaming"/basically pulling what she wanted to believe out of her rear. It was very sad -- not only because she vastly overestimated her talents and abilities, couldn't answer the hard questions to save her life, and had a husband and bunch of friends who believed her every word and kissed the ground she walked on; but mostly because she seemed to believe it all herself.
