...The team of 15 ghost hunters spent the night at the hotel and recorded a number of mysterious and ghostly-goings on, including temperature drops, ghostly apparitions and people feeling as though they were being pushed in the back. One ghost hunter, Wendy Isaacs, of Yate, said: "It was one of the most active ghost hunts we have been on. [continued]

I wonder if this group is known or just a local phenomenon. :biggrin:

I think this says it all:

". . . We as a group have never declared any location as haunted. i feel sick when i read this article and i will asure everyone that the media will NEVER get our cooperation again in any form. They have taken comments from the investigation report that are complete speculation and rumour published them as fact and i dont like it one bit.We did get some weird localised temperature readings and a dictaphone was acting up on that night but those are the only FACTS there are. the rest of it is just peoples feelings which cannot be quantified and therefore should not be taken as fact. We have worked very hard over the last few years to do things the way they should be done and i strongly object to the way we have been portrayed in this article.

I commend Simon for his personal and scientific integrity. He could have easily exploited the media blitz, but, chose not to do so.

Thanks Chronos, I completely missed the feedback section at the bottom. The investigator comments right afterwards and says pretty much the same thing.

They sure closed with a bang lasts season, but the two main guys - I never remember names - both seemed to be burning out. Remember? They openly talked about it in one of the last shows. Of course, what are they going to do; go back into plumbing? :biggrin:

Truly disturbing. Is there a reality series in the works that involves flushing plumb-cams?

Actually, I still don't know what I think of Ghost Hunters. They seem to be sincere and honest but it is so hard to tell. They did get a few very striking videos, and the fact that they only got a few over two seasons lends to their crediblity, but it could just be a well calculated, ongoing hoax. They give you just enought to keep you coming back, but not enough to get tagged as hoaxers.

However, having personally experienced what most people would consider to be a haunting, I am open to this stuff. And I can believe that it might all be true.

As an inhabitant of the most haunted county of the most haunted country in the world I must say I'm kind of dissapointed I haven't seen anything yet.

About Psychic research groups, some are doing sterling work under scientific conditions that would not be asked of most of science. The nature of their work means they are subject to much more scrutiny than any other branch of "science". There are some amateur groups that probably produce less reliable evidence. But From the resaerch I personally have seen from attending lectures I can say this: If ghosts exist then sooner or later a scientific experiment will capture them on film. If they are figments of our imagination, or halucinations then this also will be verified.

We have numerous groups in England that research this type of phenomina and many of them would feel slighted if the way in which they tackle this already controversial subject were to be dismissed simply because it is fringe science.

Do I believe in ghosts? I believe people see them, I can't comment any more than that yet:wink:

Apply the scientific method and let the chips fall where they may. There is no such thing as fringe science, IMO. Undisciplined investigations are the enemy, not the ideas being explored.

Hi all,

I apologise for digging up an old thread but i have just found this site and your comments.

That article has caused me no end of problems and i am glad that some people saw my comments before they were removed (i believe) from the site.
