Hoaxtead decided that it was finally time to bring their blog to an end to move on to other things in life. Hoaxtead was started in 2014 at the peak of a Satanic hoax alleging that the people of Hampstead in London was raping, murdering and eating babies as part of a major Satanic cult. The slow and rather clumsy handling of the hoax in the early stages by the police and their lawyers allowed the hoax to become an international soap opera that drew hundreds of people in for over five years. It was only due to the jailing of Sabine McNeill one of the primary masterminds behind the hoax for nine years that it was finally brought to an end.
During the five years of the fight Hoaxtead became the focal point for everyone supporting or fighting against the Hampstead hoax. As the hoax gradually ran out of steam the Hoaxtead blog was initially kept going with the occasional post supported by a YouTube channel; but with the hoax mostly now dead and real life adding additional burdens on the time of the writers of the blog, they finally called it a day.
Hoaxtead will continue to exist on the internet as an archive of information gathered over five years against those who create and promote Satanic fraud hoaxes, a wonderful resource for researchers.
There was a strong argument that Hoaxtead perpetuated the length of the Hampstead hoax since it gave the Satan Hunters behind the hoax a focus upon which they could continue their obsessions. Without Hoaxtead I believe the final motivator for Satan Hunters to pursue this dead hoax will evaporate, since it was Hoaxtead that gave these failed human beings the attention they so desperately craved motivating them to continue with the hoax.
