So many proven hoaxes and so many people still cling to them as evidence. Pages post them as authentic. We also see the same type of claims on paranormal pages.

Because people want to believe it.

It's the same reason fake news thrives even long after it has been debunked.

Hi there.

I am new to this site.

Are you aware of the youtube site - ''secureteam10''. Many people are trying to debunk the site, suggesting that a majority of the information put there is untrue and hoaxes.

I have seen this site and looked at some of the videos on display. I feel that the site is genuine, with some interesting articles, both past and present.


I do agree that there are an awful amount of trashy sites out there in internet land that are hoaxed (including your link).

RE: How does a repeated hoaxer retaiin credibility?
Publicity wins every time. When a story is repeated often enough, often with claims that 'they' don't want you to know about this people just accept that it's true because there is no smoke without fire.

Sadly it's now so smokey that it's hard to find your way to any fire. Also, "this is fake" sells a hell of a lot less than "the awesome truth They don't want you to know" so even when somebody admits that that Loch Ness photo was a prank or somebody explains something to do with Roswell as 'not aliens after all' nobody hears about it and so the lies just carry on circulating and the real unexplained stuff gets lost under an internet sea of Zechariah Sitchen and crazy disclosure rumours until the whole subject becomes a pain to read about. I actually gave up for years due to this and have only tried to get back into things in the last couple of years.
