I guess it must be just one more technique for flushing out who knows what.

Unless the poster admits that they are in the spook squad and I highly doubt a good spook would reveal himself for fear of reprisal from his handlers, there is absolutely no way for you to know that someone is a spook here or not.

wow. just, wow. it amazes me how people like you can get so many other people interested in such an unimportant topic. even if agents were watching, why does it matter to know this? is this article meant to be useful or just gossip? i, myself had a conspiracy phase. i later found that questioning authority is of no use. i still search the internet for what today's conspiracy theorists are cooking up in their heads. although i do not enjoy rambling, this is one subject that i can not ignore. there is no point to share your curiosity and alleged "knowledge".

Well, they are welcome to. I have nothing to hide.
The Internet brigades (traditional Chinese: 網特; simplified Chinese: 网特；Russian: Веб-бригады)  are state-sponsored information warfare teams that conduct psychological operations on-line. Such teams are allegedly affiliated with state propaganda departments, military, or secret police forces. They are said to disseminate disinformation and prevent free discussions of undesirable subjects in political blogs and Internet forums by using cyberstalking, cyber-bullying and other psychological warfare methods against political bloggers or other Internet users. Since the existence of Internet brigades is often officially denied, such activities may be defined as "black", covert or false flag operations (or "active measures" according to Soviet terminology)
