I think there are disinfo types on ATS but I think they fall into 4 types.
1) Those who live in there moms basement and so believe something that they are willing to make up anything to try and make it true. These are the
ones who still believe in the alien autopsy video or that a youtube video is going to be the real thing. Sometimes these ones have a religious bent to
them. Usually stop posting in a thread if shown they are wrong.
Catchphrase " I have a Youtube video that proves I'm right."
2) These are the foreign paid ones. Lets face it ATS is mostly populated with individuals living in or from Britian or her former colonies (US,
Canada, Australia, NZ, Ireland etc). The agents in this category come on in large groups and try and comment on specific issues involving specific
foriegn nations. They usually ignore threads that do not get above a certain size (it takes time for them to show up on google) and they stick to the
breaking news forum. They show up post lots of posts with BS and made up or flawed facts then disappear until the next large thread about there
employer (or it's enemies). They also usually have very poor english skills, such that the grammer is very hard to read.
Catchphrase " Yuo ar wong, the incident never happened, they are the frined of the United States of America. Yu trust China."
3) The ones who give the party line. These ones may be paid but are usually not, they just go online and repeat what they hear from the email they got
from there organization. Very similar to #1 above but with more of a political agenda and a very much more persistant nature. They may work for a
non-profit organization and do this out of a feeling that it is the right thing to do, but usually it's not why they are paid. Some religious ones
fall in here but usually this group is political. Like to use the current MSM phrase with negative conitations to refer to those who disagree with
them such as "Truthers, Birthers, Teabaggers, Coolaid drinker".
Catchphrase "I can't believe so many people aren't embracing what a gift this vaccine is and how our government is trying to help us stay
4) This group is usually not obvious and are the ones who you need to worry about. They work for the alphebet soup organizations and usually appear
hard core in there beliefs, but they usually are argueing the opposite of what they truly believe. They then try and get people to join them (using
U2U's) so that they can report on people of like minds to there boss.
Catchphrase "Let's get our guns and rise up against the gov't, U2U me to join my group."
