The BARsoc website is no more, but that doesn’t mean that the organisation has stopped – we’ve simply downsized and made things less formal; we believe this will make things work better.
Welcome to The Vigilantes blog, where those people who made BARsoc work continue to offer rational insight into the often irrational world of paranormal research. We had many great people who are involved in paranormal research in one way or another who offered to help with BARsoc, but when it came down to it, it wasn’t practical and didn’t work as smoothly as it could have done.
That has now changed. If you need our help simply get in touch via the contact page.

This is going to be a tricky interview to follow for readers as it was conducted in two parts. I was originally meant to conduct this interview via Skype but due to power outages at the other end of the line and technical difficulties on my part delaying things, this wasn’t possible. Due to clashing schedules we instead decided to pass the Q&A back and forth via email. Due to the amount of questions I had, I split them into two.
The first set were sent across, the answers received, and then the second set off in response to the answers received in the first set. Unfortunately the second set of questions remains unanswered. Firstly I should explain what the interview was about and why I asked Al for an interview.
I was linked to the website of the Paracorder667 by a fellow BARsoc member a while ago when they pointed out that the claims were quite interesting and grand. The gadget is just one of many sold by the US company Moditronic that they claim can help you to detect ghosts. In fact, one of the first things you read when you visit the Paracorder667 website is:
“ENERGIZES AND DETECTS GHOSTS ! EASY TO USE ! PACKED WITH TECHNOLOGY !”
Energises ghosts? How do they know how to do that? What with? How does it work? I needed to know. The rest of the site from which the $89/£56 gadget is sold is also filled with some rather impressive and bold claims, none more so than those on the ‘scientific evidence’ page.
