Subject: RE: Folklore: Is this an urban myth?
Griska,
         Myth and legend are intertwined,both are ancient stories told to explain things that people had no other explanation for.
Legends often include mythical or supernatural figures as part of the stories.
Urban legends and myths are similar stories set in modern or recent history.
The stories that MGM is talking about above are just that stories,
the inclusion of FOAF's is just a attempt to give them credence
