A youtuber I quite like posted a video about fake psychics and the like and I thought it was pretty good. It's coming from the layman's perspective, he doesn't seem to know anything about parapsychology, just coming from the popular narrative so there's only praise for Randi, some misinformation about Stargate, no evidence for psychic powers, Geller ect. 

BUT, if you put that aside the rest of the video is very good, and I think all of us here that have looked at what the evidence says should still be able to enjoy shitting on these people who are fakes, giving psi a bad rep and hurting innocent people.

I've not go around to watching this yet, but from the description given it clearly belongs in the forum section: Skeptic vs. Proponent Discussions
Perhaps @Laird  or @Ninshub  could move it please.

I didn't think it belonged there since the people the video covers clearly aren't anyone that we would think is authentic. Legitimate tricksters, except MAYBE Geller.

The presenter of the video (someone whom you like) clearly thinks this video encompasses ALL psychics. In fact I'd say it is denying the existence of any of the phenomena covered by Psience Quest. Pretty much. Which makes it extreme scepticism of very poor quality. The entire video seems designed to tell its audience not to go worrying about the facts, as he's got it covered.

Typoz is right. This is not just a video exposing frauds, but one that goes from there to assert that all claimed instances of psychic ability are fraudulent. It definitely belongs in the SvP forum.
