Hey Café members,

First post, so forgive me if I do wrong.

Has anyone else noticed a few recent articles on wikipedia exposing magic in its entirety?
Here are two links:
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balducci_levitation
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_levitation

One of them is a marketed effect. And its thoroughly explained with subtleties.
Looking at the writing style, it looks like they're written by the same person.

Thoughts?

Welcome to The Magic Café!

There are many such exposure sites out there, including videos. The best course of action is to ignore them. By posting links to the sites, it only serves to provide another portal for someone to find them. Except for the restricted areas, The Magic Café is open to anyone. It is unlikely that anyone can stop these sites, but assuming the damage has been done, it is best not to inadvertently spread it further.

As this was your first post, your intention is understandable, but hopefully you will understand the reasoning of my reply. :)
