Skip to comments.The Gentleman's Guide To Forum Spies (spooks, feds, etc.)

COINTELPRO Techniques for dilution, misdirection and control of a internet forum.
There are several techniques for the control and manipulation of a internet forum no matter what, or who is on it. We will go over each technique and demonstrate that only a minimal number of operatives can be used to eventually and effectively gain a control of a 'uncontrolled forum.'

They’ve been here for a long time.
It’s very apparent during election time. And it slows down during the summer..if that tells you anything.
It’s easier to spot them here than on a liberal forum. If we go there and act all radical, to them it’s normal. If they come here and act all radical, they are tossed.
What they don’t realize is.......
Nah, not going to tell them.
Just look for the jerk off who wants to blow stuff up. Like you can always tell who is the spy in a Militia. He is the one with all the automatic weapons and explosives.
Good Morning, Y’all. How are things in Langley today?
Point them out.
Well, you and me, of course.
But perhaps I have said too much.
This guide to internet forum disruption appears to be written in a Freshman English class.
These same things are done all the time on every forum. The motivations for it are amusement, stupidity. I can see folks from DU coming here, or vice versus and trying to be an instigator.
I bet that the two weeks running up to an election all kinds of trolls are everywhere.
I especially remember the run up to the nomination of Romney. Trolls, trolls, trolls, on all sides of the issue. Pro-Mormon trolls, anti-Mormon trolls.
Mostly all the upsurge of Mormon religious articles. I think those were written and “defended” by anti Romney types because they were articles exploring the weird bowels of LDS.
But at the end of the day, I think that free speech wins in the end. Romney bless his little heart was run over by Obama. But Romney loss because he kept the ground game a family business. Also he lost his nerve on Benghazi.
>> Well, you and me, of course.
Y’all are obvious, but you’re useful for seeding disinformation, so don’t sweat it. :-)
Thangs in Langley be jus’ fine, sir.
(A little double-feint to the racist side, to keep y’all guessing . . . .)
If I was Nixon fan, I might simply declare that I am not a troll, but since O is my man, let me just say that, IMHO, if you like your forum, you can keep your forum.
Well first of all they usually post links to external blog sites, or so I’ve heard.
About a decade ago, one of my last jobs before retirement was being assigned to an RTCA (Radio Technical Committee for Aeronautics) group tasked with investigating the threat of emerging computer technologies to commercial aircraft systems (every passenger bringing a cellphone, computer, Gameboy, etc., and then using it inflight). The two biggest players on the “team” were Intel (who at the time was pushing UWB - ultra wideband technology), and Boeing.
Dissidents were identified day one, and efforts began to marginalize their inputs. Let’s just say that the Cloward-Piven strategy is alive and well.
Oh HO! The Station Chief speaks!
>> Oh HO! The Station Chief speaks!
Yeah, and while we’re here, did you want to discuss that salary adjustment you requested?
You're not showing on my Active Agent list. Did you complete your E-QIP re-certification and receive your new SmartCard?
Better watch out for Semmens. His satirical threads are too close to the truth.
Do we really want to do this on our Target Forum?
I'll drop by your office before c.o.b. today.
“Mostly all the upsurge of Mormon religious articles. I think those were written and defended by anti Romney types because they were articles exploring the weird bowels of LDS.”
The same few FReepers have been posting those same types of articles, for years before Romney was nominated, election time or no. The only thing that increased when Romney got nominated was people accusing them of being “anti-Romney” by doing the same thing they have always done.
>> 80% of the members there are us.
Why does that no good Laz get a raise and I don’t?
And why do I have buy the donuts every week?
I don’t see the articles anymore. Where are they?
That’s a great tag line.
I am talking about all the pro LDS articles posted. I think they were posted by anti Romney trolls. How else could you explain the insanity of those articles?
>> Why does that no good Laz get a raise and I dont?
What raise? I said salary *adjustment*. Laz enjoys his work so much he feels guilty about is pay level; we’re going to address that.
>> And why do I have buy the donuts every week?
I’m glad you brought that up. Would you mind bringing donuts that are actually *made* that *same* morning? Thanks!
They own Fr, why I rarely post any more.
Its East Berlin across America.
Oh yeah. Certain posts are completely deflected into drivel.
Wait - what if that guide is just an attempt to list normal forum activity as subversive activity in order to trip us up into seeing spies behind every post?
But you’ve been here less than a year.
I like to blow things up.
HELP! The Paranoids are after me!
Lost my password last year, one I had used since I think from early 99 so I started a new name, really pisses off some paranoids. And I got really tired explaining who I am cause all that did was to get a lot of nasty email.
So basically I just kinda gave up on FR for awhile, its becoming more and more like the DUmp.
“IMHO, if you like your forum, you can keep your forum.”
IMHO, if you like your forum, you better contribute to your forum.
This article should be pinned to the front page of Free Republic, in bold, bright colors.
I've found he is the one that wants to purchase a weapon of an illegal barrel length, or an unregistered/homemade suppressor.
Federal agents don't have all day to wait for you to do something illegal. They have bosses to answer to.
I don’t see it as a big deal. After all, it isn’t as if someone is going to come and take you away in mid-sen
Most of the pro-LDS articles were posted by 2 posters that either got banned or just quit posting.
These tactics do not work well in an environment where the tactics themselves are well understood. There are more than a few conservative, well-trained, former members of the Intelligence Community who are committed FReepers watching over the site to protect it from outside interference.
The Free Republic mods do a pretty good job on their own.

I've long suspected that posters which disagree with
me are paid infiltrators sent here by Soros or the
Bilderbergers or the Illuminati or Taco Bell.
