I think its a real thing. See the much more fortunate ethanol version:

Croweater, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your aunty, as well. I still think about Soren every day.

Then there is the story of the girl who was reportedly poisoned at the bar when she drowned in the pool. Etc. Etc. So many of their stories don't ring true to us because we know that they're mostly impossible. But the moonshiner makes a great scapegoat and it's easy to paint him as Al Capone or Jack the Ripper. And the truth will never see daylight.

I need to find a new hobby! :mrgreen:

So all this shit is stirred by people who are against moonshining or even against alcohol at all.
I do not see any reason why we should add to that stirring.
Rather find and share factual articles and reports. Making usefull compost of the shit, so to say.
