I hope I put this in the right place, if not, Mods, please move it to where it goes. Also, I did search and couldn''t find anything on here about
I came across this info awhile back (im sorry, but i forgot to save the site I was looking on where I found it and now I can't find it).
Since I'm still fairly new to this site, I was wondering if this site has these 'editorial Intelligence' or Posters for Hire? You know like
politicians or other powerful people that are hiring others out to post on here for them to get information, without anybody knowing they are doing
Anyways it just got me to thinking that if they in fact do that on here or other sites, is what we say on here safe?
Please forgive me in advance if I am way off base here or if what I am thinking is silly.
Below is the first thing I found.
'Many know (but there are more who do not) that an industry now exists around online 'opinions'
People are PAID to post in forums just like this and thousands of others
Sometimes, it's referred to as 'Editorial Intelligence' .. whereby companies solicit contracts from industry, government, manufacturers, authors ..
you name it
For a sum, these 'editorial intelligence' organisations will provide x-number of people who will post in forums, for example, in favour of the
client's product or agenda
In other instances, these 'posters-for-hire' will flood the Editorial columns of online newspapers
As a certain group controls virtually all media worldwide, they play along and select the supposedly 'genuine'(not genuine at all) comments-for-pay
-- whilst removing those which do not cater to the client's agenda
Overall, these 'editorial intelligence' organisations PROMISE .. GUARANTEE ... that by utilizing 'posters-for-pay' and 'comments-for-hire', etc.
(particularly online, these days) that they CAN and WILL ... 'shape and form opinions'.
Again ... they PROMISE they CAN and WILL SHAPE and FORM opinions .'
Here's another link thingy mabob...
PS. Mods, I am definitely NOT saying that I think that you guys have these posters for hire...
