I have been away for a long time because I felt this place had anything but good mods, a feeling that we were been manipulated by the mods. However I
was given part of a large research that I found to be interesting and also concerning, it convinced me to share it with my fellow ATSers
I got my hands on a report from a group of people who are examining how moderators in different social media world wide are manipulating responses
from the public. I only got part of the report and it concerns a very well known online news paper, I will give you the short version.
Two texts were sent to the comments section of this new paper,only different was one used the word muslem the other the letter m, in all other ways
they were the same.
The one using the word muslem was not printed but the other one was. After a few hours a email was sent by the moderators saying
due to the large amounts of complaints the text had been with drawn ( remember it had never been published ) shortly afterwards another
E mail arrived saying the text will not be returned to the public due to the amount of complaints. It was also noticed that moderators used false
profiles to challenge other text and give themselves large amounts of positives. It was also noted that some text that was sent would have
the word muslem removed and replaced with other words then republished under these false profiles ( remember all the wording the same
except for muslem). Posts would also be delayed for many hours some times days before they would be published.
During the night many negative votes would suddenly appear(manipulation of voting). The main words that seem to trigger the software are
and many others but I dont wish to write them.
After several weeks a text was sent to the e mail from the moderators
Your account has been permanently de- activated for going against the Community Guidelines.
You are no longer allowed to post on the xxxxxx or other Associated Newspapers XXXX sites using this or any other user.
Please be advised that should you post again we reserve the right to contact your ISP/employer and seek that action
is taken against you"
Remember the only text that was removed was the one that was not printed,
all other texts that were sent are still visible and the account is still open
From what I understand many social sites moderators are working to control people and destroy free speech , and im wondering how far this infection
for example in Sweden the government had to close a whole department because it was working for ISIS.
Please remember I am only forwarding information as I received it, its for every one to check it , nor do I
condone attacks on any religion or culture.
I have had nothing to do with this research so i cannot answer any questions. Once again i post this as something of interest not as an attack on
