Attention Paranormal Community
As part of our ongoing public service, we sometimes come across websites that are less than honest. One such website is paranormalnights.co.uk. The other day, we were notified by a pingback. That is to say that somebody linked to our website. It provided us with a link to the page where the link was placed. To our surprise, we discovered that the Reverend Sinthyia Darkness’ news article that she granted us permission to publish here had been stolen and republished here.
A link to our website (or any other) is by no means the proper way to credit any author for their hard work. If we should move or delete the page, who is going to know who wrote the article? Inability to track down sources of information is a huge problem in the paranormal community and this incident has diminished the integrity of that article. Also, they never obtained permission to publish the material from the author.
The original news article appears here at the Examiner News.
Our church has sent notification to the administration of paranormalnights.co.uk, who have thus far completely ignored us. Rev. Sinthyia is very protective of her work and her name and has taken further measures to get her property removed from this website.
Meanwhile, if anyone reading this has published any work about the paranormal on the Internet, we urge you to visit that website and see if you recognize any of the content that they are publishing. If you do, contact email@example.com as sending letters to the website administration is worthless.
The IP address for this website, 188.8.131.52 has been blacklisted here to prevent further theft.
Our sincerest apologies to Rev. Sinthyia.
