An encounter would be an extremely personal and traumatic experience, I wouldn't doubt. (whether an actual bf encounter or not) And sure it would be tough to share something you might even be embarrassed about and then have to defend yourself and listen to possible ridicule.
But this isn't different from ghosts or demons or etc., is it?
Or, maybe these personal experiences are different?
And also why would one not expect skeptical inquiry of all levels and types?
I would guess some who have experiences may even be harder on themselves than some skeptics would be, or pretty darn close. As they argue with themselves trying to wrap their own heads around what happened.
