This is all totally fair Godley, and no need to apologise. Its totally understandable if you're sceptical, without evidence, and you're being very polite about it (shame not all members have the same manners).
I understand that I could provide evidence to prove what I'm saying, but I'm very cautious about giving out too many details of where I live...probably over-cautious (although, given the rather hysterical reactions from some of the members here, who seem somewhat unhinged, I feel glad I haven't).
It makes no difference to me if you (or any other member) chooses to ignore what I have posted. That said, if you look at how long I have been a member (surely someone wouldn't hang around for so many years of rampant HPI if their heart wasn't in the right place!), and if you accept that I am (as I have stated before) a frustrated FTB that is willing the market down, then I wonder what motivation people think I have for making things up?
