      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Do you think Theresa Caputo is the real deal?

400 posts in this topic

I don't want this to be so much about whether what she DOES or her claimed ability is a real thing (mediumship/talking to the dead) cause that's another discussion that's been done on another board.

But I just meant Theresa herself. Of course if you don't believe what she claims to do is even possible, then I understand that your answer will be no.

For those who have different/more open beliefs... what do you you think of Theresa HERSELF. If she the real deal or a charlatan?

If you don't know her by name, she's "Long Island Medium"

Oh no, I'm sure she thinks what she's doing is real. Just like Bernie Madoff thought he was offering a solid investment.

I tried to be really neutral with my op but honestly I'll just explain my agenda....

I'm genuinely curious to see if anybody other than ohioguy believes in her. Not in a condescending way. I'm really wondering who might like her around here. She has a lot of fans and stays on the air for a reason.

She has a lot of fans because there are people who want to buy what she's selling even if it isn't real. Losing someone is hard and it's appealing to hear that you can still communicate with your dead relatives. Just like people wanted to believe Bernie Madoff because a sure thing investment that has incredible returns is something everyone would love to have. However it just isn't real.

Yeah but I highly doubt many people are consciously thinking "I don't really believe this is possible, but damn I'm so heartbroken and overcome with grief that I'm just gonna believe what she says to feel better". I'm not saying no one has thought this when it comes to her.... everyone grieves differently. Some people very well may think that. But the point is, people do believe her for reasons they feel to be genuine. Either they believe in her herself, or in "mediumship" in general.. I'm just curious to see who the local d1p fans are of THERESA herself.

I just watched an episode where someone said "I never believed in mediums, and I'm still not sure if I do. But I believe in Theresa. I believe that she is real. I'm not sure about others".

Absolutely no one says or thinks that, they're not consciously aware of it. It's called exploitation. There's a hole in people's lives and she makes money filling it with bullshit.

yeah so we agree..... no one in consciously thinking that :P. we both said the same thing.

I agree with everything you are saying. She's a sociopath who has found herself a successful way to fulfill her sociopath desires. Just like all people... some sociopaths are dumb, and some are stupid as hell. She's found herself a very clever way to gain the power, recognition, and money she seeks. Clever in that she knows what she claims to do can not be concretely proven or disproved, and therefore neither can she. So while she is aware she has "skeptics", that's fine because her pawns to success are those vulnerable people with a void that she takes advantage of. She's not even human imo and should be exiled.

but I know everyone on d1p is ~oh so smart~ and would never ever be ignorant enough to take this girl seriously!! z0mg!!! ya'll are too educated and cool and stuff.

i already know all the responses that will come from that type. I'm just wondering if anyone here believes (besides ohioguy since we know he does and he's just a giant troll anyway). Someone has to, like I said, she's got fans. Are any here besides ohioguy? pm me if you dont wanna talk here and be attacked by all the z0mg intellectual superiors.

If you rule out that all of her guests on the show are in on it, or giving them information before in this mass conspiracy, (very personal information mind you) then I absolutely think she does have soemthing. I don't know the magnitude of what she's got. I believe in con artists for this type of things all over, but from many people who have visited psychics swear by their legitimacy. The last show I watched Sunday she asked about this "plaque" that the lady had in her bedroom commemorating the death of her daughter. If the lady didn't tell Theresa that plaque was in there before the show, how do you explain it? Again, if you rule out mass conspiracies of guests all being paid off, (which is absurd) then you have to think maybe she's got a gift. What that gift truly is, Im' not sure, but all I know is that she gives people comfort and peace after their sessions with her. The thing that astounds is her popularity. I think the waiting list is 3+ years and continues to never diminish. I think she's a great person.

It's not absurd at all to believe that Theresa gets fed info beforehand. She absolutely does.

I don't buy it. I really don't think she has the time or the effort to go trying to find information about people and having it all staged before each show. People would call her out. She's again challenged skeptics at random and says bring it on. Again, people want confirmation, and she does come up with things that only the decased loved one and the person alive would know. Not everyone lies kitty, and not everything is a conspiracy. I thoguht about getting in line. I'd keep something to myself (that only I would know) and see if she brings it up in a reading.

unless you're the people getting the readings and KNOW everyone lies and have evidence for the fact, then you need to STFU because you don't know. Let me have my opinion for once instead of trolling me every single fucking time I make a post.

I guarantee you the producers of the show or one of their assistants interviewed the person before she went on the show. They're not going to let some person with a boring story waste their time while they're paying for the talent (Theresa) and the crew to be there to shoot. It is entirely believable that they documented the interview while screening her to make sure she would be interesting enough to have on the show and then fed the information to Theresa.
