Didn't they open for Harem Scarem? --Kels 21:19, 16 December 2007 (EST)

They opened for Poyzen Boyzen, I think. Secret Squirrel 21:20, 16 December 2007 (EST)

Might be a good idea to include something about Canada's version, Michelle Remembers. I read it ages ago, don't remember it very well. Not bad as fiction masquerading as fact. I'd add it myself, but beer. --Kels 22:29, 16 December 2007 (EST)

It's linked in the article: Michelle Smith. Could use a sentence or three in the article too if this was especially influential in Canada. Secret Squirrel 17:32, 17 December 2007 (EST)

From someone confused by wiki talk page etiquette (would not happen with LQT)[edit]

Byronwjohnson (talk) 03:20, 7 February 2011 (UTC) 11:28 pm 2/6/11: sorry for the confusion. I was wondering why I had copy which was previous. I didnt mean to cause any uproar. Thanks to the editor who fixed this. If I can ask, where can I read on LQT? Thanks again.

Amanda Knox[edit]

This is getting some search engine hits form "amanda knox satanic cult." With her acquittal in Italy there is a lot of interest going around. If someone with more time and/or knowledge wants to look over what we have just to make sure its a good representation of what we can do? Tmtoulouse (talk) 08:06, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

I will see what I can do in the next ten minutes before having to run off and learn how to point and shoot fire extinguishers again. Adkgraffiti.png...I'll cruise your octohedron! 08:11, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
It may be a language issue (being Italian while Google is biased towards English articles) but I'm having a lot of trouble tracking down the first-hand blogging of Gabriella Carlizzi. None of the papers seem to link directly to it. Adkgraffiti.png...I'll pander your sacrifice! 08:20, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Let me have a look and see if I can come up with it. Anarcho Symphony Noise Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 08:23, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
I mean, I've always had my suspicions about media involvement but now I'm looking into it it's difficult to find anything that doesn't look like it's been massaged quite a lot by the US press for the sake of spinning their story. Adkgraffiti.png...I'll curate your snake! 08:30, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
You'll have to translate them, but this and this might be what we're looking for. Anarcho Symphony Noise Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 08:32, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Meredith Kercher entry to be removed from the page[edit]

The report that prosecutor made a satanism allegation in the Meredith Kercher case is false. It is not supporter by any credible source and actually outright contradicted by all direct sources. The story about Gabriella Carlizzi allegedly being the source of the prosecutor's view is a narrative pushed by some authors/journalists, namely Doug Preston & Mario Spezi. It can be shown that this is contradicted in reality and that the sources are discredited. Therefore it should be removed entirely from the page, IMHO Gornik (talk) 23:31, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Oops. Sorry for getting rid of your edit.ClickerClock (talk) 05:38, 8 June 2017 (UTC)

West Memphis Three[edit]

As the West Memphis Three section is very biased (and makes stuff up - Jessie was coerced, but confessed multiple times of his own volition), I'm removing it. This is a case where the prosecutors were right for the wrong reasons - there was "muh Satanists" idiocy here, but Damien Echols is a proven sociopath and psychopath who tortured a dog to death. -- (talk) 06:40, 23 December 2017 (UTC)

Rather than just deleting the section, suggest how it could be improved. Which particular sentences are wrong? How can any specific statements be reworded and improved? Saying you don't like it on the talk page isn't sufficient reason to delete it immediately. "See talk page" indicates that a consensus has been reached and you are enacting it. —Kazitor, pending 00:21, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
This sums up all the evidence in favor of them being guilty. It makes a compelling case that the three were guilty, but the prosecutors were on the wrong tangent. Had they just focused on Damien being a psychopath (his family was literally terrified of him, and for good reason - a few months prior, he tortured and disemboweled a Great Dane), we wouldn't be having this conversation. People have latched onto the Satanic Panic thing and are trying to flat-out ignore the evidence against them, claiming Jessie was coerced into confessing. He wasn't. He repeatedly confessed of his own volition, to the point his lawyer basically said to stop because he kept incriminating himself. He was a bit delayed, yes - but he also deliberately tested low on an IQ test to help the defense. It's someone with an IQ of 85-90 deliberately trying to act like they have an IQ of 70-75. -- (talk) 19:19, 24 December 2017 (UTC)
If the section needs rewriting with greater attention to facts then bring some citations to the party. What is stated above ("People have latched onto the Satanic Panic thing") makes it obvious that the section belongs in the article. (talk) 10:44, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
