I see four pages of back and forth between believers and non-believers, not two "more" pages of ridicule directed at the OP.

Yes, I think all the REPORTED ones are frauds. There is always motivation for these; the chance for some jokesters to smugly go "HA! Got ya good; didn't we?!"

The vast majority of them, at least in my area, go unreported intentionally.
OK, and what are we supposed to make of this? I can make anything up and claim that there are plenty of people out there who have seen it but none of them have reported it. I can't tell you their names, but take my word for it, what I say is true.

But there I go again, demanding people actually back up the extraordinary claims they're making in this forum. Damn my hide.

There is no motivation for practical jokers to continue here; no media attention, names in the paper...nothing.
How do you know this?

Oh, and pointing out that something is absurd is not "picking on" someone.

I saw a very thorough debunk of Slenderman the other day. Ghosts and spirits is almost IMPOSSIBLE to dismiss. True, I may not be 9 years old anymore, and turn off lights and go into bathroom and say "Candyman" 5 times anymore... but ghosts are freaky and could be evil.

As to crop circles, this always looked like a bird to me...

Really?? I read half the people are openly mocking this thread, and the other half are trolling it.

Yep, we're persecuting people for holding ridiculous beliefs.
