Anybody following the "Dear David" ghost story? There's some very creepy photos taken of the said child ghost, I can't post the twitter link due to the censored twitter handle, but I found this link that will take you to the twitter account.

I posted about it in one of the threads here a month or so ago. I'm personally not buying it and here's why. First, the guy would post pictures and then comment that he took a photo but there was nothing there - waiting for someone else to notice *something* was there. Secondly, why not post videos? And finally, he claims he doesn't want to get any professionals in to check out if there's activity there 'because I don't want a bunch of strangers here'. It seems to me if there really is an entity in his place that is freaking him out, it wouldn't bother him to put up with some strangers who could tell him what to do about it.

I don't know if he's trying to market something or what but the more he goes on about this the more it seems to be the biggest chain yank ever.

I just saw the first photo in the link, and I wonder do you really mean it! The photo looks funny more than creepy. Obviously, it is not real. You can find this shape of ghost in cartoon movies.

I think it’s fake, too, but using Twitter with their short platform does ramp up the tension well. Nothing there couldn’t be manufactured, it photoshopped.

He could have some paranormal activity going on in his house. For the photo, too grainy for me to believe it hasnt been manipulated and looks like a blurry Chucky doll.

I didn't really research this story too much prior to posting and a fakery is definitely possible.
A live web cam or video may help, regardless there is some entertainment value to it

I would delete this post if I could so if any mods would like to do the honor, I thank you in advance.

This guy should have quit while he was ahead. I did follow the story, not because I believed it, but because it had such a good creep factor. He should have written a book, instead of trying to superimpose those fake pictures of the ghost. He lost a lot of people when he did that.
