The Slender man is an interesting example of a myth gone wild. He began as a mere photoshop creation but now so many people believe in him that he may well exist in the spirit world as a thought form, futhermore spirits that already existed can now assume this form due to the fact that we believe in him. Its all a trick by the spirits to destroy us. the only way to fight back would be to destroy the myth but thats impossible at this point.

actually, it seems that demonics have taken that "image" to use it to get close or to feed off of people. Either way its "image" may not be real, but the power behind it is. (Let me guess, this will turn into an agruement that demons are/ are not real.)

Ok so wait.  Now slenderman has gone from a fake photoshop image on a stupid website to a disguise that demons wear in their neverending quest to make people soil their undies?  Bravo!  I say.  You have successfully moved Slenderman from verifiably fake to the melifluous world of unverifiable woo that includes demons and the like.  "What the F&%K ever" I say.  If you want to live in a fantasy fairy land and live your life fearing things that do not exist then more power to you.

Nah, haven't played doom for a while. However I killed some aliens just a couple of hours ago.

Have you ever told your doctor about these delusions?

Perhaps we can have a constructive discussion about the qualitative differences between a being said to exist in "thought form" and one that exists in "Imaginationland". I, too, am of the opinion that Slenderman is a fine example of a "myth gone wild"...

Not quite on top of the agruement, but is ther anyone on this site that is a paranormal invetigator in Noblesville, Indiana near Morse Lake? It isnt for me, but someone else who asked my help. There was a slenderman sighting (dont know if it was a real sighting or not) But I guess there was a father who doesnt remember stabbing his child for no reason. (Blackouts are typical of temporary possession.)

I continue to be blown away by people saying they are seeing Slenderman in real life.  Thats like reporting a sighting of the Easter bunny, or Santa Claus or the tooth fairy.  All known myths, equally as fake as slenderman.

Wait, wait, wait, wait.... The Easter Bunny is not real? Then who the hell is breaking into my house and leaving candy and eggs for my Kids??? I'll have to talk to the dog about this....

Seriously, I with you Orange... I can't see how anyone would think this is any more real then the demons out of Doom, or any other video game/internet critter.

Just for your information, Ive never seen played or read of Doom. I didnt know what a demon was until I ran into one, or more. It was an honest question, but now I know not to come to this sight looking to warn people or to ask for investigators (or hunters)

If you are referring to the man in Indiana who you say has stabbed his child then such things are best left to the police, courts, and mental health professionals. A self-proclaimed “paranormal researcher” would have limited access and could end up being a hindrance. Claiming “no memory” of violent acts is a sign of mental illness or the feigning of mental illness rather than of demonic possession or Slenderman infestation.

If you are honestly seeking to warn people and/or engage seriously with people on such topics then all you need to do is back up what you claim. Anything less is the stuff of "thought forms" and "Imaginationland"...

Slenderman can be killed! Turns out he uses the imagination and belief of mankind against us. So the more people dont believe him and say he isnt real, the less we will hear or see about him.

Now, this makes sense.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.
