Examples of haunting in a Sentence

  1. Ehsan Sehgal:

    The English Wikipedia is a notable website or Conservapedia Encyclopedia; it describes to consider it easily that Conservapedia establishes accuracy, neutrality, honesty, and standards within its scope regardless of conspiracies, financial interests, and distinctions. Moreover, Conservapedia's contributors qualify fairness and knowledge of the encyclopedia's credibility, and it also forbids fools, idiots, and mafia groups, which on Wikipedia every second stay haunting others and busy to spoil work of experienced ones. The Google search should prefer reliability and notability than a rubbish website that carries the worst and ignorant contributors, even children and child-minded who play there as building the sand houses and breaking that for their pleasure. I predict that Wikipedia will disappear or become invaluable as criminals, mafia, and scoundrels website since its contributors demand money, sex, and such other evil and filthy needs; crazy ones fall in it, thinking that the website will create fame for them, which contradicts that. It defames and humiliates and spread false and fake information shamelessly. Virtually, one's talent and skill of the art, writings, and professional works create notability and fame, not Wikipedia; whereas, it publishes only information, mostly poor and unauthentic. That's why the universities and academics consider it an unreliable website. Additionally, who played the dirty role to delete a well-sourced article from Wikipedia, I gave high respect that two admins, a Dutch elderly contributor, and an American lady, a librarian, but they became involved in that illegal game, misusing Wikipedia project. She was in my social media friend list; my admins blocked her as a suspicious tool. As a result, I became a victim of those two ones; whereas, I cannot exclude this user has also played a dirty game, I avoid, to reveal this time other secrets; however, they have put Wikipedia on the legal process and questions.

  3. Andrew McClellan:

    Any other museum would simply paper over the loss and take down the frames and put something else up, at the Gardner, it's a haunting presence that will only ever be healed by the return of the paintings.

  4. Erik Davis:

    It’s about three generations of family who come together in a cramped Chinatown apartment in New York City to celebrate Thanksgiving, the film is layered with nuance … deeply haunting and ultimately very moving.

  5. Chynna Noelle Deese:

    That video shows they were happy, healthy, and well on their way, to possibly getting engaged and all that. They didn't look like they had a concern in the world, they were a team and a unit. It was haunting to see that video, because they looked in great shape. There was nothing wrong.
