"In my experiences i'm more willing to believe a person is otherkin if they are honestly complaining about it the going on singing it's praises...people tend to not choose to make life harder on themselves conscientiously, though people love to make their life be grander and more awesome then it really is."
And the specialism that SIN refers to embraces both the beauty and burden of Otherkinism. Many people *do* make life harder on themselves as it plays into any kind of attention they can get. It doesn't matter what kind of attention. You see it all the time.
There's a definite understanding within Otherkinism that separates the wheat from the chaff. Personally, I find most spiritual beliefs both awe-inspiring and delusional; a kind of spiritual fuzzy logic if you will. Nothing really needs to be exact, and, in particular with spirituality, it should all be dimensional. I think even the most orthodox of religions take note of this (c.f., kosher dietary laws).

Cause for much debate. You should check out Tumblr sometime. HILARIOUS debates had there.
I don't doubt =)
which means what exactly to the tune of Otherkin?
I think the vast majority of the normal animal people are just seeing the nahuallis. I have no opinion on other claims, however. The demon and gods ones, etc. Claims of being a god, certainly go back further than the otherkin movement.
