I guess he couldn't find anything else to blame, so why not the Ouija

There should be some form of age restrictions for these things. I don't care what anybody says Ouiji boards are dangourus if used incorrectly and by inexperienced users. A theory I have is that when people do things like this, they beleive so much that it will work they trick themselves into thinking it will. Somebody in a house who they believe to be haunted by somebody they once knew, they will trick their mind into believing it is haunted by that person and this will lead to things like hearing noises and you are instantly coming to the same conclusion that it is a ghost.

Might not of explained that very well, hope you get what I mean haha

No, you are quite right. Ouija can be dangerous from a psychological perspective, we do know that much. It''s not just young people who can suffer though as there are plenty of adults who scare themselves silly with the things.

As from being dangerous from a 'paranormal perspective', there's no real evidence that this is the case despite what countless people say.

People often stress that Ouija should not be used by people unless they "Know what they are doing", but more often than not "Knowing what you are doing" seems to boil down to spiritual stuff like "opening and closing boards correctly" and using "protection" which to be honest are as much proven to work as the boards themselves.

With Ouiji boards for me, I only really go by one or two rules and those are don't do one if you arn't sure what your doing and make sure if you do do one then make sure you do it where it wont bother anybody
