Federal Government Hires Internet TROLLS to Monitor and "Correct" Online Discussions

This subject is of big interest to me and I am happy to see other websites picking up the concerns...

This subject is of big interest to me and I am happy to see other websites picking up the concerns and expressing them publicly. I have crossed paths with these undercover agents many times, on various websites and forums, and a I can tell you from my first hand experience that they are extremely effective. 

They are usually intelligent and well informed people, and a couple of them operating on each section of a forum, are enough to kill a subject of major interest almost immediately. 


I. CIA-Sponsored Trolls Monitor Internet and Interact With Users to Discredit Factual Information



"In July (2012) it became apparent through a flood of mainstream media reports that the National Security Agency (NSA) was 'desperate to hire new hacking talent to protect the nation’s critical infrastructure' yet the NSA is notorious for its surveillance programs on American digital activity... 

David Petraeus, former director of the CIA, is seeking to better the CIA’s ability to create online identities for undercover spies." [1], [2 nsa.gov], [3];


"David Petraeus essentially admitted that the CIA has a covert online presence that it uses not only for data mining purposes but also to infiltrate online conversations for the purpose of protecting 'national security' interests.


Such interests, it turns out, include disrupting conversations that discuss topics like 9/11 truth, for instance, or U.S. involvement in giving weapons to Syrian rebels." [4]

II. Their work can be summed up into 5 major categories:

1. They combine their vast knowledge with disinformation and ridicule, in order to make a subject appear as uninteresting and misleading as possible. 


2. At the same time, they fuel meaningless debates on uninteresting subjects, easily diverting attention from the important ones -- while keeping the first page of a forum filled with subjects bringing nothing new or crucial, and acting merely as distractions.


3. If a given subject is of major interest and they are not able to instantly kill it, then they will divert the discussion to one of the never-ending "divide and conquer" debates, like politics, racism, war, etc.


4. They work together to report those who are informed for things they have not committed, like copyright infringement or spam, in order to have their accounts suspended; or provoke them systematically, looking for an offensive reaction that is sanctioned by the forum rules.


5. Finally, they infiltrate the high ranks of a forum or website, becoming "moderators". This gives them power to delete threads of interest, due to fake copyright infringement reported by their undercover colleagues, and they can go as far as permanently banning a user.


III. One of my first hand experiences: a permanent ban


I've had my account deleted and all my articles and comments removed from a major conspiracy forum, where huge numbers of undercover "agents" (too much of a word for these governmental lackeys) operate, due to copyright infringements to... myself! 


After bringing to their attention that I was the one who wrote the articles, they've accused me of advertising. In the forum rules it was mandatory to include a link back to the article's source, but in my case it was considered advertisement. 


The forum's moderator explained in the same email that he received numerous reports from various users, accusing me of the already mentioned rule infringements. I've received no previous warning and offered no chance to "redeem" myself. All my future emails explaining the situation in a civilized manner (and even offering to remove the source links), were completely ignored.


IV. How to spot the internet trolls


If you are a forum moderator, site owner or concerned member of a community, and you want to flush the undercover trolls out, then you should pay attention to the following behavioral patterns:


- They usually post discrediting messages in groups, supporting each other's claims, while demoting, ridiculing or spreading disinformation in all interesting threads. These trolls are usually very active and they are the first ones to post replies -- because this is what they are payed for. 


(You will notice on some forums that the first half dozen to a dozen replies are ridiculing the subject or spreading disinformation on the subject. This method is casting a dark shadow on the thread, and not many people will see through their fog of lies).


- Their overall activity in other people's threads is not constructive. They are always in contradiction to the thread's OP and with those who support it.


- They usually support each other's threads, making them even easier to unmask. 


- Their threads are usually about the already "drained" subjects like the Roswell incident or JFK's assassination - where they allegedly try to bring new light to the subjects;  they post a lot about Masonry for some reason that I don't fully understand, and - of course - they encourage everyone to take violent actions against the government (which is exactly what the government wants).


- Their avatars are in contrast to the main theme of the forum.


(For example, those who were ridiculing spiritual subjects on spiritual forums, had negative avatars depicting: Satanic or Masonic symbols, violence, mocking spirituality, etc.).


- They are very active and part of many groups and communities, but they are mainly activated by specific subjects -- those they know best.


-  It is very probable that they have applied in the past for the "moderator" role and they are periodically reporting users who infringe the forum's rules (many times wrongfully).


V. What can you do about it?


If you are a user and you spot one of these undercover agents, please report them to a forum moderator, and bring as much evidence as possible to support your claims.

  1. Here are excerpts from a couple of emails that I have received this morning, so you know that it's the real deal:

    1. From a writer;

    "Good morning,

    Thanks for the first news item I received this morning. I appreciate it, especially where you talk about being accused of copyright infringement. This has happened to me three times in a row.

    I am a writer and the site where I publish my books is called scribd.com located somewhere in California. These last three books are all one way or another aimed at destroying the deceptions of the Catholic church and the lies found in the so-called bible translations, from Genesis 1 to the end of Revelation.

    Three times now, when I upload a book, they take it off and tell me its copyright infringement. Of course I attack them on this and after a while they allow the book back onto the website, with profuse excuses for why it happened.

    The conclusion for me: don't use them again. But where will I publish or upload because my work is important to wake people up to the truth!?"

    2. From a fellow internet publisher:

    "I love the internet trolls, we've been getting more and more over here. I even had a case last week where someone was sending death threats to an author of ours. Good times!

    Thanks!"

    If you had a similar experience yourself, please don't hesitate to post a comment or send me an email (alexandru2012@gmail.com) describing it.

    1. Simple! Any email that I can't identify as coming from persons that I correspond, goes to the trash without being opened!
      Second. Any troll can post whatever he/she think, I make my own mind logically by saying Cui Bono?

  2. Sad, so sad these people with nothing better to do than try to undo the valid works of others. Corrupt souls under evil spells of evil spirits who have nothing of value to offer. They will vanish like a mist in the morning sun, never to be remembered as if they had never existed.

  3. More tax dollars stolen and wasted by our dogmatic, fascist, totalitarian, sociopathic, entitlement-minded aristocracy.

  4. They encourage everyone to take violent actions against the government (which is exactly what the government wants).

  5. not just the NSA. Mr. Obama employed thousands during the last campaign to convince conservatives to not vote for Mitt Romney. He will be doing it again during the next election cycle. It works.

    I encourage you to go on huffpo and similar sites and do the same thing...and convince (or at least plant the seeds of doubt) into the minds of liberals to not vote for democrats who are not 'liberal enough'

    1. Voting is a deception meant to give us the illusion of choice, when in fact everything is predetermined by the powers that be.

      All US Presidents but one were related to a king of England - an ancestor of the British "royal" family, which in turn is related to Vlad the Impaler (aka Count Dracula), as "price" Charles admitted.

      1. All US presidents except one, related to one king of England:

      http://humansarefree.com/2011/06/12-yr-girl-discovers-all-us-presidents.html

      2. Prince Charles: "I am a descendant of Dracula"

      http://humansarefree.com/2011/12/prince-charles-i-am-descendant-of.html

      You see, probably all "royal" families are related to each other at this point, after uniting their families through marriage throughout history, and many of their descendants are being kept unknown to us.

      We can better understand the "secret descendancy" from the modus operandi of the Rothschild family, who keep the sixth child secret for later use to their cause:

      http://humansarefree.com/2011/09/history-of-house-of-rothschild-complete.html

      There is solid enough evidence that Adolf Hitler was Baron's de Rothschild secret bastard grandson, and he only became antisemitic after a couple of years spent close to his grandfather. Also, most (if not all) of the money Hitler needed to take over Germany, came from the Rothschild family. Later, WWII was sponsored by the Rothschild family once again, and even Prescott Bush (father of George Bush and grandfather of George W Bush):

      http://humansarefree.com/2011/05/adolf-hitler-was-rothschild-proof.html

      So, you see, voting is merely a tool, used against us. While we live with the illusion that our vote counts, the Secret Brotherhood gets closer and closer to their New World Order.

      We need to stop voting and stop supporting the established institutions... and their empires will crumble over night.

    2. quote:"Voting is a deception meant to give us the illusion of choice, when in fact everything is predetermined by the powers that be"
      When I go voting, I feel like the turkey voting for Thanksgiving Day & I have the choice of stuffing. Cranberry stuffing or chestnut stuffing. But the end result is, I'm the stuffed turkey at the end!

  6. I have been very active since the BP oil disaster where we first learned of hired disruptor.. I spent most of my time attempting to expose the lies and misinformation and in doing so they turned on me... All of a sudden I was the hired person. lol So some said.. It seems while trying to keep only correct info out there and discrediting the lies, one can become the target of misinformation. While investigating one person who claimed to be a geologist , I was attacked . He posted doubts all over the net about me ridiculously suggesting that he thought I was the head of a "Sleeper Cell" actively involved in terrorist attacks in Egypt and elsewhere. lol This coming from the same man that claimed the CIA and FBI were after him so he was on the run. He gathered a huge following along the Gulf Coast because he did have a storehouse of information about Geology (from somewhere). He discredited me ..he thought,,, I must tell you I am a mere 64 year old grandmother and native of the Gulf Coast who grew up on the water.. My only intentions were fighting for my coastline and stopping the scare tactics that were wildly flying ...I said all that to say this... Everything this article described could very well be the same actions of someone totally innocent just fighting for the truth. I became so disappointed in humanity after the disaster because of what I had seen.Seems everyone was wanting to make a buck off of the disaster .. It becomes extremely hard to weed out the disinformation from people literally trying to do good. Almost imposable. I am here to say that the disinformation bunch did a GREAT job.. They wore us all down ...but what they didn't expect was that they made us extremely angry and determined in the process. The anger that is built up in me from all the BS could stand alone if it had to.. Know they are there but also be very discerning in the process...Call um like you see um and never be afraid of the fallout..
