Your forums are infiltrated
Your forums are infiltrated.
I have been on several large forums latetly and the discussions are all the same. The people are talking about how the forums are infiltrated, how the quality of the conversations are not the same.
I have to agree with the forums that I have been to, the chatter on these forums, where once bright and intellegent, almost revolutionary, seem to be quite different now.
One forum that is listed as a conspiracy forum constantly makes fun of members who post conspiracies, or calls into question the mentality of anyone who would believe them. A lot of these forums were set up by intellegence agencies in the first place, and the rest that were not are so over run that they may as well have been set up my shrills. That's how it's working.
Hijacked threads, threads where the conversation goes off topic, nothing get's done, you just waste your time. Good threads don't go anywhere, no one posts to them. Or if a topic is discussed and a good point made, several posters will post in the thread till the useful or relavant point is off the main page. The people on the forums, know how to work, and control the boards, and it's working.
I saw one forum, where they shamed the posters into shuting up about talking about a conspiracy. They made the posters feel stupid, and so the conversation almost died, till one poster pointed out what was happening.
I can tell you what use to happen on some of the organized stalking forums, where people would join, a real target would feel that they were being signled out for barbs, or a real target would afterwards realize this forum is not about activism. They would point out that it feels like something is getting done, but the forums are there to ensure that nothing is getting done, no real progress is being made, but lately it's worst and worst, and this seems to be happening on many forums across the internet.
It's something members of the various forums have likely noticed, but I just wanted to bring this awareness to the surface, so that it could be more readily discussed, and evaluated.
