If it makes no sense to you, then it probably isnt a real thing...

The question now would be, how do you go about spotting one of these people in a crowded forum?
It would be easy to point to inflammatory posters who seem to openly have an agenda, but my guess is these people probably lay low and are a lot more sbtle about their business.
I always suspected that there were people, not just government workers either, who were paid to get on the web and spread disinfo in order to sway public opinion on key issues. It sort of freaks me out to have seen proof, it definately makes one question the validity of just about everything that you read on these online message boards.
I guess it shows that a lot of paranoia is justified. Wonder how many I have personally chatted with over time spent, a few in particular instantly come to mind.

If you have spent any time on ATS (abovetopsecret.com) especially in their "Secret Societies" forum, you will notice that there is a troop of Masons (much like Digg.com's Bury Brigade) who are online ALL day EVERY day. Not only this but they are perpetually online 1) providing a "benevolent"/open face for their secret society, and 2) constantly defending government/establishment positions and their "Brotherhood."
