Newsgroup Spotlight: Alt.Paranormal

Like so many other text-only newsgroups, alt.paranormal seems like random rants and crazed religious spam at first glance, but once you start reading through some of the threads, you'll realize the full potential of this very active group.

Thanks to a few die-hard users who post frequently throughout the day, the group has become a center for talking about testing paranormal claims ranging from ghost sightings to bibliomancy. There are skeptics debunking myths and other skeptics debunking the first skeptic's methods of skepticism. After reading several posts, you start to realize that some of these people have been going at it like this for years.
