I opened the link but dumped it immediately after the intro. You get a hit for that right? Congrats. 11 minutes of nothing culminating in 1 second of sheer ... nothing? No thanks. Perhaps some people new to the Internet might oblige. Out of sheer annoyance I must ask, what did you do with the shadow once you had it caught? I bet you let it get away. You did, didn't you. You gotta stash those spooks in a tinfoil box right away, dude! Gahd. Arrow

Six YouTube links posted on separate threads (combined here), with no follow-ups, or any subsequent attempts to engage with other posters of any kind. Just plain spammy self-advertising clickerbait-ion?

AFIK you need to view a certain amount of seconds before You Tube registers a "viewing".

Is it possible for Chillseekers to do a highlight reel?

Because there's been no effort to engage the community and there seem to be nothing but self-serving links, I would label this spam as well.

Now, if ChillSeeker were to engage in a lively discussion about their videos, that would be something else altogether.

After asking the spirit to make a noise a series of tapping sounds are made and the message can be deciphered using morse code.

Do you think this person ever reads a single reply or looks for their own threads to review follow-up? Seems very 'botlike behaviour. I guess if you guys flicked the account they'd reapply under a new name with the same schtick so why bother...

Negative energy, eh? Rolling Eyes

One imagines they'd know what that looks like real good.
