How do you determine who is a disinfo agent?
Is it based on their difference to your views?
I would say that it is someone who shows full support for something that is obviously quite corrupt, who wont listen to any of your facts or consider what you have to say.
They will just come and splurt out their propaganda and ignore any contradictory facts.
How often do you see a topic arise that perfectly divides opinion? Sometimes these are harmless questions posed to provoke a thoughtful discussion, However there are others meant to incite disparity and conflict and once polite conversations are quickly becoming flurries of accusation and derision. A good analogy would be the brothers Grimm Brave little tailor, who threw a rock amongst giants to turn them against each other, only in this day in age we are the giants, the rock is the internet, and the brave little tailor is the disinfo agent.
There are many times I get frustrated by obvious deception right here on ATS. That being said, I have also seen many times where the obvious attempts of railroading a thread fail. I have also seen the majority of this community disagree with the disinfo agent often and of course I have seen it go the other way. What makes sites like this so tragic, is with so many threads and so much input and feedback its nearly impossible to discern truth. Of course, once you have been here long enough you begin to notice patterns and certain behaviors of other posters.edit on 20-3-2014 by Rosinitiate because: (no reason given)
I hate to burst peoples bubbles but, if you think a "disinfo agent" is posting on a place known for being on the fringe your fooling yourselves. Nobody is going to try and influence the alien, bigfoot, 911 inside job, lizard people, doom porn, the anti-christ is here, I have a vision, everything that happens in the world is a CIA plot, NWO, martial law crowd because they are viewed as nuts.
