And when has an old lady/ NIMBY ever said,

"The lake was our little piece of peace and tranquility," said one woman walking her dogs "but deep in my heart my conscious will haunt me if I am so selfish to choose my own pleasure over the living conditions of others."

But a good hoax, cause the details are scanty, and people do want to believe that something like this could be true. A good lie needs to be anchored to some kind of truth, whether perceived or not!
