Snarl brings up a good point about twits and facebark giving us more exposure to alternative-thinkers and frosties intro bears all the hallmarks of this occurring.
ATS has always been dominantly USA based in it's membership, so more European outlooks and intros could certainly make things seem out of order.
If you really want to play detective, then you could make a file documenting members and their posts. When you finally feel that you have found a bad guy, you can report it to the moderators. Of course you have to keep these member studies to yourself and off the boards because of the T&Cs.
I understand as well your disclaimer on pointing any fingers, but sometimes when it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, and even looks like a duck, then it probably isn't a majestic swan or a bald eagle.
Like "I've been lurking", not a conspiracy or code for the secret society or anything, they just all like the movie and have to say the same thing in order to fit in…

I joined ATS in 2012 and my experience from then leads me to believe that, no, most will not understand the difference. I also expect partisan bickering to ratchet up to another level as we get closer to the election and the Presidential candidates start fighting dirtier and dirtier.
I feel for you though. Even back in 2012 when I first joined I had a firm idea that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans were worth voting for.
