My joke about debunkers may seem harsh or appear to be bad taste. I apologize for it if it offends your role here. However, the opinion has been formed over years of field experience. Wikipedia quotes aren't going to change those experiences neither do they validate the debunker in any way. In fact the Websters quote "If debunkers are not careful, their communications may backfire - increasing an audience's long term belief in myths." Tells you that the writer is himself biased against anything outside of the accepted and agreed "flawed paradigm" that science is built upon. Debunkers all too often are self imposed "guardians of thought" and more often "thought police". In some academic circles they are considered to be corrupt and biased in favor of the highest bidders.
I speaking from this forum not collage "debunkers".
Most skeptics/Debunkers want the holy grail of proof or evidence but it's a lot of digging through a lot of crap to find it. If you read many threads you see a theme and it's not just the debunkers.
Normally you get the people who create threads who believe what they have captured something on camera/sound/video and want an answer. Which splits into three groups,
Group one is people who made his mind up before any one can explain what about what they captured or did wrong with the camera. They want to believe they have caught something special not them taking a picture with Lens flare or not using flash or messing with the settings or taking pictures/video of dust, which can be easily explained and replicated. You reconize group one as people who would post a massive story on the events on how they captured the shot/video/sound. They are easily offended and willing to insult people to back up their claim.
Group two is people who is simular to group one but they know it's fake but do it to get attention or do it for a laugh. Their story is normally far fetched, massive plot holes and messes up the whole paranormal community which cause more people to be skeptical on any one who posts their stories.
Group three is a smaller group, they want an answer, either it's paranormal or just a simple explaination on what they captured then they are happy with that.
Most people who post evidence here can be explained, most cases it's user error on the camera, or some one trying to trick some one or some one wants attention or wants to feel special by gaining a "power". People who have waking dreams suffer from Sleep paralysis where they have dreams of demons, ghosts, aliens etc. People who seen popular culture movies like twilight and want to write a fictional story about themselves or friends being vampires or werewolves. It goes on.
