As a person = Concerned.
The thing that worries me is that quite a few of these faked or Machine/User Error is presented by people who call them self paranormal experts or ghost hunters or simular self proclaimed title. It seems very easy to do that on the internet.
The funny thing is some of the photos (that i had linked on the start of this thread) had been presented on UM or other forums and been over all agreed by the people on the forums to be Fake or Machine/User Error yet it creeps up on these sites where there is no one that can interject their evidence.
My thought is this, If some one (either is a hoaxer or truely believes their evidence is true) went to a forum like this and didn't like the response they got (which 9 of out 10 happens in the ghost section). Where do they go afterwards? A website that there is no one able to directly comment to discredit their work? Forgot about it? Go to forum after forum, hoping to get the right crowd that is in awe of what they caught? Go to the media? Who knows.
I agree. The best way to get people to believe in your point of view (whether real or hoax) is to put it on the net, preferably somewhere that people can't comment and discredit it.
It's kind of like those stupid chain emails that go around, I get them and constantly think "the person that sent that to me can't posibly believe that it is real." And yet the keep coming.
