The difficulty lies in sorting out 'superstition' related items from items better characterized as addressing (e.g.) ghosts / hauntings, divination, IHTM, etc.

Having said that ... Here's an additional list of 30 threads which address superstition(s) directly enough to suggest they might well be located (and locatable ...) in a Superstitions (sub-)section:

Done.

Thank you. One tiny thing: if links for merging can be to the initial page (not to a subsequent page or a specific post), it makes editing much faster.
Ah, I didn't notice they were to specific posts. I'll bear it in mind in future.

These 2 threads in Religions & Cults:

Turin Shroud may date from time of Jesus
http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/turin-shroud-may-date-from-time-of-jesus.55597/

Easter Essay on the Turin Shroud
http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/easter-essay-on-the-turin-shroud.45064/

... concern the Shroud of Turin, and neither received any replies.

I recommend they be merged into the main Shroud of Turin thread:

Small Humanoid Found(?!)
http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/small-humanoid-found.6158/

Sirius: Alien Pixie Autopsy Documentary
http://forum.forteantimes.com/index.php?threads/sirius-alien-pixie-autopsy-documentary.52420/

Both these threads focus on 'Ata' - the anomalous-looking Chilean hominid discovered in the Atacama Desert.

I recommend they be merged and re-titled to facilitate finding the thread - for example:

'Ata': Chilean Humanoid Figure / Alien Pixie
Tweaked the name, but done--thank you.

The first two are very different cases--might round up more imposters later.
'Might round up more imposters lately.' Sounds like you got a posse of imposter-chasing vigilantes on the go there, Yith. Something we should know?
