Promoters of the hoax, part 2

Yesterday we published the first half of an update to our FAQ: Promoters of the hoax. We’ve been going over the evidence from Sabine McNeill’s trial, integrating new information and deleting material which is no longer relevant, in order to present the most accurate summary possible. In yesterday’s post we covered the time between Abraham…

Hampstead SRA hoax timeline update, part 2

Last week we began the task of updating the timeline of the Hampstead SRA hoax. This is a continuation of that process, beginning with the events following Sabine McNeill’s involvement in the case in November 2014, and ending with the Pauffley judgment. Our goal is to integrate information gleaned from Sabine’s 2018 trial, as well…

Hampstead SRA hoax timeline, updated (again)

Yes, it’s time for another hoax update timeline, oh huzzah, let the bells ring out.

Time to mend the nets

It happens from time to time: things go quiet amongst the Hampstead hoaxers and their followers, and we are left twiddling our thumbs and wondering what to write about.

FAQ update #3: How to navigate the FAQs

We’re on our third day of updating and refreshing the FAQ section of the blog, and to be honest we’re starting to get a bit cross-eyed. At one point it occurred to us that while there’s a metric tonne of information in them thar pages, it might be difficult for the average reader to find…

FAQ update #1: ‘How we know it’s a hoax’

As we promised yesterday, we’ve been poking around in the Hoaxtead Research FAQ section, updating and revising to reflect new evidence that’s come forth in the past few weeks. Here’s the first new page, which we’re calling “Frequently Asked Questions: How we know it’s a hoax”. Please feel free to suggest revisions, additions, deletions…this is…

Time for a bit of housekeeping

Every now and then the Hoaxtead mob slow down their antics enough for us to do a bit of tidying up—housekeeping, as it were. Anyone who’s been following the blog over the past few weeks will have noticed that things have been rather hectic around here. First there was the issue of the Awkward Question,…
