How come stories on the internet of hauntins and ghosts and skinwalkers noticeably dropped off after like 2015. sa used to be in the forefront of hauntings and got teens to stab each other because of slenderman, what happened to the hauntings!

Because it never leaves its bedroom, no one has ever seen this poster's real face.
ghosts are real, but their essence is dissipated by wifi and cellphone signals, so you only get hauntings in areas with low coverage, which are getting fewer and further between. but those also tend to be areas with low populations, meaning there's less chance of there even being enough dead people to haunt, and on top of that, well, less people to see them if they do
your best bet in america is something like a coalmine or an abandoned town built around a now-closed factory or mill, places of that nature, where life is slow and quiet enough that the echoes of forgotten tragedies may still linger

I'm dead OP. Unfortunately, nobody gives a poo poo! I haunt people on the regular and unfortunately, if you can't get picked up by a cell phone camera and put on the TikTok, people tend to ignore you. You used to be able to get an episode of unsolved mysteries, at least. Now I can't even scare little kids.

the main cause of ghosty activity are the regrets of the deceased, unfinished business, life still yet to live, etc. nowadays everyone is hella stoked about dying, so it just doesn't come up as much

Too many renovations, redevelopments and ghost tours, making for lack of suitably isolated spooky old places for ghosts to haunt in.

The reasons you don't see ghosts anymore is obvious, just look at this thread, all these motherfuckers is boring. Ghosts don't want to hang out with boring people.

Fatal Frame was really funny because I was playing it with a friend and he was terrified of the game but I thought the ghosts were hysterical. There's one that just wails "MY EYES!!!!" in the goofiest voice, it had me going googoo gaga.

I rented i think the second one from family video and I remember getting to a level where you look through a window and then a kid that pops directly into view after a few seconds, 2 scary.
