Has there been a decline in interest in the paranormal?

Or is there some other reason for the lack of participation on Yahoo Answers?

Update:

People can have an interest in things that don't exist. 

Update 2:

I've never blocked you, English Guy, reported you many times though, for your violation filled posts. 

Update 3:

? You are right, commenting was a great feature. Now there is no commenting on Yahoo, or anywhere else. Not Y/A, not news stories, not editorials, and most news services in the US have eliminated them as well. 

Update 4:

I see you have a new account, Yahoo finally gave it the heave-ho, good for them. I reported your last answer for the same reason I'm reporting this one.

    Then why come to a paranormal site, Jon? 80% of the world are paranormalists, so you know what they say If you can't beat em!

    Sol, how do you know they are fake or are you just talking bull? I have seen charlatans exploiting children on here but that is all. Maybe a couple of trolls also took a hit NG? 

    I answered you Keurt but the two bosses of this section, Sol and DR.NG deleted my answer. You did block me. I was talking about that guy with a method for making metal float and it did so in his neighbour's house also. Your silly comment was that Chinese scientists were working under the house on antigravity??? I commented on your stupidity but you blocked me. Get it, right kid.

    I am wondering about the behaviour of a certain pair of individuals myself NG. A pair of report monkeys who did themselves no good when reporting once too many times.

    Look at what that bich Sol has to say about users here and who she calls report monkeys. There are even complaints about her on other sites. She completely misuses the site, has her say about everyone, even having a go at pearl, the most inoffensive user on here, then she reports you if you say anything back. A paedophile and a coward. There has been no decline, it just looks that way due to who is allowed to spoil the site. An increase in trolls. NG I have no clue as to how you can stand by that vile person whilst pointing the finger at other users. Just the other day, she had a go at pearl for sweet FA yet there you are claiming you have an idea who to blame??? We know who is to blame NG, don't we?

    There is no evidence of decline in belief in the paranormal, as far as I can see. 

    I think the decline in use is more to do with paranormalists not having much use for a public Q&A forum, rather than a discussion forum. Q&A fora are meant for those seeking factual information, and paranormalists rarely want to do that.

    That we cannot REPLY to each other here is a BIG factor---Its HALF the fun of posting.  Too bad they killed the comments in ALLcategories and not just the political ones

  • Judging by the number of adverts I see for people offering fake paranormal services there are plenty of people still interested in the subject and no shortage of charlatans ready to exploit them. 

    Here on Yahoo there are two problems, the first are the endless glitches which plague every category, and the second, in this specific section is the hypocritical pest that is endlessly reporting other users while blatantly violating every one of Yahoo's rules himself. 

    Hopefully once he runs out of points, which shouldn't take too long given the rate at which he is losing them, Yahoo will rightfully terminate his account.

    Not in the Paranormal in General from either Skeptics or wholehearted believers, but this site seems to have taken a hit. I suspect the ugly behavior of a certain user has caused it. Considering the lack of answers to their noxious questions, I'm not the only one. Maybe if we legitimate posters keep ignoring them they will go away.

    People are either brainwashed, indoctrinated or more interested in soap operas or watching sport (because they are too fat to do sports).

    I just wrote to someone who was been interested but went downhill because of their indoctrination. There are only a few interested and open mind people out there.

    The paranormal does not exist.

    Have a nice day

    No there hasn’t (and never will be) it’s just that this section has never been that good, it’s run by skeptic trolls. 

    I’d really rather chat with a medium, or some kind of clairvoyant, but I don’t think that’s too likely to find on Internet forums. *shakes head*

    Lack of participation is down all over YA, due to the comments feature being disabled.
