No, Just stay out of it. Maybe him writting his feelings helps him get through whatever is going on.

No.  I wouldn’t assume they were him and even if so – he’d be using it to be anonymous. 

The thing you could actually do is for you all from his church start reaching out and try to be genuine friends to him. Not gossiping or assuming you know him and his state of mind without actually getting to know him.

Kacey23 :  why do you think it’s him?

There are a lot of lonely people. Whoever is writing that stuff could obviously do with some therapy because it sounds obsessive and resentful, which isn’t a good combo, but there isn’t anything you can do about it. 

I agree with PP that it seems like you all are gossiping about a mildly disabled person and assuming for some reason that he is the author of these disturbing posts. Many disabled people have full lives, are loved, etc and many able bodied people are socially challenged and struggle with relationships.

Agree with PPs – you don’t actually know if it’s this guy who is writing the posts, and it’s none of your business if it is. Either try to really get to know him and be friends with him, or leave him alone.

Nope. You don’t know it is him.

I’d do my best to include him in things. Thanksgiving is coming up – I find holidays to be very lonely times being away from my family, and I have a hubby and kids! I just wish I was closer to extended family. He probably finds holidays really hard. Invite him to dinner. The more he gets out and meets people, the more likelihood of finding a few good friends. Whether it’s him or not in the posts, you’d be doing a good thing by including him.

If you are concerned about him, invite him to do something or join in on something a group of friends is doing. Honestly if I were him I’d find it pretty insulting if someone assumed I was writing a bunch of stuff on Craiglist and it wasn’t actually me.
