Slender Man is no match for Considerable Man!

Considerable Man dresses all in black, because it is slimming.
He has a fat face, fat body, fat arms and legs, and he chases you for a very short time.

Does Slender Man have any connection to Grinning Man? Or, are they interchangeably the same entity? I've heard a lot of Grinning Man, and I believe I have heard him referred to as Slender Man as well but I can't quite recall.

I sometimes enter a place in my dream that I call "NeverWhere"; it is a place that never was; that's how people before my time say it as "Never-Never World" or "Never-World" for short. I think what they call "The Slender Man" is stalking me through this "NeverWhere"--a world where everything is tinted-blue, and, where the shadow of objects are a deep-black color. This so-called "Shadow Person"-looking figure of a man comes and tries to choke me to death; I fight back in this particular dream. "It" tried to deceive me into think "it-self" was my older brother John-Paul; "it" even had his voice exactly-matched. I saw "it''s face in the dream; it was exactly like what is describe as what the "Slender-Man"-face-area is described as. There were other "dark-figures" in the shape-form of animals; a cat and a dog. Somehow, I wanted to journey into the outside world of "NeverWhere", but, for some reason I could not; that's when "it" showed up and attacked me by choking me with "it";s own handsl "It" was making a growling-like sound. Then I had woken-up in my bed in the late-morning. There's this other boogieman that one of my friends calls "The-Silver-Man"; "Silver-Man" for short. "Silver-Man" is dressed like a cowboy, but, in all-silver-color; he likes to stalk people, and, he likes to shot his silver-color-gun. I only had one dream where "The-Silver-Man" was in it; the dream was very weird.

THey're not connected to my knowledge

However there are similarities.

black suit, appear/disappear, unknown motivations, etc.

Stop being frightened. You only see a monster because they want you to see monsters everywhere. They've conditioned you to look for monsters in every shadow, every coat hung on every door. As long as we keep seeing monsters, we'll continue to need protection and that's how other people get to control our lives.

Ah, thank you for clearing that up for me.

why the Slender Man is BRILLIANT

1.It proves the weak-mindedness of people who see things and think: "That must be real because it scares me and I like getting scared!"

2. It shows how cryptid legends and urban legends can start clearly and decisivly.

3. It proves how people would rather believe in something fake then think rationally.

These are all idea's based upon independent "sightings" made by people who assumed the man was real, some are very humourous.

Wasn't this the case with the so-called chupacabra: a made up fictional beast whose moniker was later attached to a variety of hairless dog? It's amazing how much traction these things can get.

Slender Man was invented by a forum member on the Something Awful website.  There was a thread about members photoshopping paranormal photographs and Slender Man photos were posted by a member along with an authentic sounding but made-up background story.

Before that thread, there was no such thing as Slender Man and nobody talked about it.  If you search Google Trends, there's no mention pre-2009 and interest suddenly exploded in 2012 and dropped down somewhat afterward.

Which is exactly what you would expect if it was an Internet urban legend and not at all what you expect if it were a true story with people having experiences going back deep in time.

Still, solid monster

Haven't had a good scary monster created in forever it seems.  Slenderman and Shadow people seem to be our best things going in the past 100 years or so.

Stop being frightened. You only see a monster because they want you to see monsters everywhere. They've conditioned you to look for monsters in every shadow, every coat hung on every door. As long as we keep seeing monsters, we'll continue to need protection and that's how other people get to control our lives.

We all know that Slender Man was invented by Victor Surge and posted on the Something Awful website in 2009.
But fear not, mystery-seekers! This will all be forgotten on the next page of the thread.

That was the joke a while ago; we had to explain his origins and that he was faked on every page! Glad to see it's back.

Anyway, here's the next entries from Marble Hornets:

I always thought Slender Man was a rip off of the Tall Man from the Phantasm movies

I dunno. There's a new game and it's being ported to consoles. Also there's a feature length Hollywood movie, called Slender Man coming out just in time for Halloween this year. Maybe not yet? I'd be willing to say that if Season 3 of MH, the game ,and the new movie bust.

Anywho, here is another entry:
