Well, if you click the link on the start of the page, you will arrive at a 15 page thread of Something Awful forums... taken place from the 15th to 19th of December 2003. Its 15 pages of questions, humor, and both interesting, good and downright stupid suggestions. Perhaps the most common suggestions are to light a bonfire, the second most common is "move out of there ASAP", among others wanting him to sell a few "mystery boxes" on ebay, and a few people actually posted help links for people with OCD. Something else that caught my attention is how his mother actually has pressured him to move out stating clear out she wants to fill that room with boxes, and thats what she says every time he tries to talk about it.
Perhaps the most surprising thing about it all was that there were plenty of people telling the guy they know someone who is WORSE than his mother. You know, aside from a lot of dust, that house at least doesn't have dead animals, or feces lying around.
After reading that entire thread, during the final pages the man who posted (its a male, 22 years of age at the time) is writing that he's been convinced by the posters its time to do something along the lines of psychiatric help, that some have posted a lot of useful links and help, thanking people for the support PMs and that he is going to use them alright.
Its been one and a half years since those events took place. I wonder, how has it all turned up? Here's hoping they suceeded in getting help for the lady.
