S.E.G.R.A.: REVIEW 069

As soon as I clicked the link I was sent for the South Eastern Ghost Research Association I though "Hey, didn't a review this before?" .... but no, I had not. The review I was thinking of was for Strictly Paranormal, so I presume its a free template - nothing wrong with that though.

Anyway I liked the first one and I like this one ... bar a few things obviously. The content is great (I'll get to that in a while) but the font size for the main body of text on the front page needs to come down a bit.

Now not every site or groups needs a logo as such - simple text can be just as effective. So with that in mind I have to wonder why people use banners like the one below - its near impossible to read and looks horrid.

My advice for this site is the same I give to most - keep the graphics simple, uses a limited number of colors and sort out the fonts you use into heading, subheading and body copy!

Anyway, like I said I like the content for this site and actually had a good read of the site. One bit I liked (but are not necessarily my views) is the following:

The Ghost Hunters Code

1 Let the spirits know they are not forgotten.
2 Never threaten a spirit or entity.
3 Always conduct yourself as a professional.
4 Never seek out spirits or entities on your own.
5 Addicting habits can be contradictory to your investigation.
6 Pay close attention to your dreams.
7 Use religious symbols for protection, it can hurt.
8 Listen to and trust your instincts and intuition.
9 NEVER, unless otherwise said to, leave an investigator alone.
10 Always consider all aspects of a haunting.
11 Always remember that you are in control of situations that you put yourself into.
12 Be familiar with and understand all aspects of haunting and the supernatural.
13 Your best protection is the life you lead.
14 Don’t be afraid to experiment new ways to catch evidence.
15 Do your homework, research the area when possible, and walk though to check for potential hazards that won’t be seen during the investigation.
16 Never be without walkie-talkies or a way of outside contact.
17 Research and learn about all aspects of possibilities of demonic possession.
18 Remember that there are lower level entities not just spirits demons and ghosts.
19 Always remain scientifically minded when a personal experience occurs and try to de-bunk it before you say it is paranormal.
20 Rely on your best weapons for investigations…your senses.
21 Evidence is EVERYTHING! Without it we cannot prove or disprove.
22 Always Expect Results (A.E.R.)
23 It is okay to be afraid.
24 NEVER argue during or before an investigation a hostile environment could attract a negative entity

Live by this code and you will do just fine during your investigations.
(This code is just our opinion, and this is what we believe. It may not work out the same way it has for us, with other organizations.)

So thats it, good site. And have to note that this is one long url:


Someone needs a hug!

Ok so I dont blog much other than the reviews but sometimes its hard to resist. I get mails from people who want reviews, mails from people who like the blog ... and then I get mails from people who want to respond to my reviews - this one is a peach!

Now bear a few things in mind:

• He requested the review in the first place.
• He got a lot of hits from the review.
• My site (not this blog) is there purely to provide links to sites I review ... its good for the sites and of no benefit to me. I dont even have advertising on the site.
• My site isnt perfect (not by a long shot) and like I said in my last post has been hacked a fair bit. Obviously not by this guy as I doubt he'd be clever enough to do it. - Maybe I'll review my own site when its up and running?

So here is the mail:

I just wanted to take a second out to leave my review about your pompous
and self serving attitude.

You suck !
You gave my 5 day old website a lousy rating which I humbly accepted.
However... I seem to have noticed this site is seldom tended too and is
nothing more than a mouthpiece you hide behind in a self glorifying way of
sounding important.

Its funny how your insignificant little opinion seemed not to matter to
anyone is basically a springboard for you to use other sites to benefit
your own.

So lets see where my site is today shall we ?
Well for one we were voted by WPRT Paranormal Radio as their Official
forum and Message board.
I wont bother mentioning the fact that Ive also been made their News
Content Admin.

Our network with other paranormal related websites is gianormous thru our
banner exchange program, and this Septenmber we will be launching our own
Talk Radio show.

By the way, thats a nic youtube video you have that doesnt even work on
this rat piss site.

So please feel free to review and poorly attempt to demean our site again.
Im dying to get around to my on air broadcast about this site.
Have a good day, Idiot.

So he's doing well (in his opinion) but lets look at 2 facts:

1: He wants another review .... more traffic for his site .... not from me he wont!
2: His site is still a heep of crap and looks like a free site you'd see thrown together on Geocities 10 years ago.

Poor fool is deluded. Maybe he wasn't hugged enough as a kid or maybe he was hugged too much?

Anyway you wont be seeing a link to his site in this post - I wouldnt do that to the readers of this blog.


...and the living is easy! Or so they tell me.

Anyway after a well deserved break I'm coming back with more reviews and a move of the website. Why move the website? Well its been hacked a few times (disgruntled reviewee?) and I've been offered a free hosting etc with crowd in Ireland called RedTomato ... who says no to free stuff? So thats moving over fully soon and I can change a few things with the site ... nothing major mind you.

Anyway that doesnt stop me from reviewing sites .... so on we go!
