    Im suggesting that there are people that do this (gaslight) and this article will help one identify that/those persons.
    Hope this clarifies----

    I reckon my sarcasm fell flat. Sorry. The list reminded me of someone we know who is discussed in almost every thread. Nice list.

    Some more insight---
    Are Gaslighters Aware of What They Do?
    Are Gaslighters Aware of What They Do?
    Even if a person is practicing gaslighting behavior without being consciously aware of it, they may get a “payoff” when their victim becomes more dependent on them. And then the cycle continues. The gaslighter also gets a “boost” when there are no checks and balances in place—no one holding them accountable for their behavior. For example, a cult leader may exile or kill anyone who tells others that the leader is not treating followers fairly. Subsequently, further followers may not speak out for fear of their lives. Keep in mind that dependency is one of the goals of gaslighters.
