Was just browsing through crank dot net's Psychic Links section, and
noticed a blurb there which might interest you. ~ pd
Debunking Debunkers 2002 Oct 04
... skepticism . UFOlogy . psychic phenomena . chemtrails ...
"Go to just about any website that says it is a skeptic website.
Expecting to find open minded, curious inquiry is rare. Instead you
will often find someone stating how they are a proud skeptic, they
use the term freely, and then go on to dismiss out of hand all
paranormal experience as the lunatic rantings of whackjobs. True
sceptisim [sic], in the sense of the Fortean Times new defintion, or
even the traditional definition to be found in any dictionary, seems
to be giving way to a strange new blend: what I
call 'skeptibunkies,' or 'skeptibunkers.' In the two years or so
that I've been involved in on-line paranormal forums, I've noticed a
few things about Skeptics."
One person's crank is another person's guru. What a world.
