Bad news conspiracy theorists. QAnon codes are just a guy mashing his keyboard
Graham Cluely ^ | 8-14-2018 | Graham Cluely

Researcher Mark Burnett is a world authority on passwords. Think I’m kidding? He has collected millions of passwords over the last couple of decades, and has written a book about the real-life password analyses he has done. It shouldn’t be any surprise then to hear that he’s the kind of guy who’s familiar with the different way people choose passwords - including those who think they can generate a really random password by just mashing their keyboard like a crazy man. Enter the bat-shit crazy QAnon conspiracy theory, which - amongst other things - believes that there is a huge undiscovered paedophile ring run by the powerful liberal elite.

While the author is clearly a Q skeptic, the argument he purveys is, in my view, cogent. Take it as you will

Why should I believe this guy?

There is.

...also, I don't think amongst is a word.

You don’t have to believe. Investigate. Take his heat map and apply it to future Q drops. See if it fits.

Would sure like to see these pro/anti Q articles limited to the Q thread.

The Q Internet-fantasy-sharing cult, like all cults, is immune to outside criticism.

Amongst is a word, I use it all the time.

It’s like thereto, heretofore, mayhap, betwixt, dasn’t, etc. just older versions of words still in use.

"...just mashing their keyboard like a crazy man. Enter the bat-shit crazy QAnon conspiracy theory..."

I thought those two sentence fragments went together particularly well.

It is a hobby, practiced by hard-core conspiracy-theory hobbyists.

Actually it is Mark Burnett whose credibility you should check out. Cluely is merely reporting Burnett’s conclusion, albeit with some inflammatory language.

There's a nightly Q thread, but it really is for enthusiasts and true believers. Most of us skeptics treat it as a private party, and refrain from posting there.

I wouldn't post anything of a skeptical nature there, unless you've got a hide as hard as dragon scales.

I’ve posted there numerous times; neither a “true believer” or enthusiast, simply as anywhere else dont be disrespectful and be as coherent in your comments as you can be.

The Ritalin raised and/or the vid game immersed are especially vulnerable, IMO.

The last five years I’ve been noticing a stunted maturity in people. I didn’t used to be a nut but I’m getting to think there is something in the water. I’ve been on a well for 20 years, I’ll never go back to city water.

"Among is the earlier word of this pair: according to the Oxford English Dictionary, it first appeared in Old English. The variant form, amongst, is a later development, coming along in the Middle English period. With regard to their meanings, there’s no difference between among and amongst."

Might be good for those that want to post antique news should start a running thread?

They can post a bunch of antique articles in the single thread. The qanon thread does it that way so we are not spamming the board with a thousand new threads each day.

The thousands of Q followers online digging Marxist RAT dirt 24/7 is what the Marxist RATs are and should be nervous about.
