X-files[edit]

I'm surprised to see no mention here of the multiple references to MiB's on the X-Files, including he hilarious episode where Jesse Ventura and Alex Trebek were Men in Black. Beeblebrox (talk) 03:39, 5 September 2013 (UTC)

17th century 'man in black'[edit]

Reference that might be useful, from an Australian newspaper of 1875, the third paragraph is quoting the Sunday Review, and there's this: "The devil of the 17th century belonged to a very inferior type. He appeared as a hedgehog, as a black dog, as a man in black..." [1] (No idea which Sunday Review it is but Australian newspapers of this era often included snippets from UK newspapers and magazines). AnonNep (talk) 06:23, 22 October 2013 (UTC)

Unduly negative[edit]

The role of the MIB is to protect earth from aliens. To say that they are "government agents who harass or threaten UFO witnesses to keep them quiet about what they have seen" is altogether too negative.101.98.175.68 (talk) 05:27, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

  • You're confusing the plot line of a film series with a much broader topic about supposed government agents generally. This article is about the latter and includes mention of the former. Stlwart111 06:50, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

Examples of claims?[edit]

How come there are 0 examples of the alleged encounters in the article? 71.75.130.191 (talk) 20:38, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Found this. Good source to clean up and reference the "Fringe claims" section. - LuckyLouie (talk) 21:14, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
