Preach on brotherman. If that is the definition of insanity, allow me to join you for tea.
If I am crazy, and everyone who knows me knows I know I am, then it is not because I am intimidated by bullies. That is sane and logical. What is
insane is when (IF!) I ultimately do fail to stand up for myself and my cherished values to them, and prevail. The greatest war-crime is silence.
As far as there being PAID DISINFORMATION AGENTS ON ABOVETOPSECRET.COM FORUMS: there are, duh, by now they are in almost every forum. The days of the
lurking Creeps gave way to the days of the Trolling Spooks on 9-11.
And WHO ARE THESE "TROLLING SPOOKS"? I can't name all their screen-names, per se, because I just joined. But if you like, you can reverse-engineer
their identities case by case by analysing their strategies. For example:
TROLLS CREATE MULTIPLE, DIFFERENT-IP ACCOUNTS: then they agree with themselves, and can always have a safe "backup account" when their primary usage
one for the day is inevitably banned. It seems like science fiction to some of us, "insane" folks, but real people are doing this these days. Why?
Some are kids doing it for net-cred. Most are adult-children grad-school, gung ho nationalist types at heart, and probably compare themselves often to
GI Joe toys. Why does this group of "adults" do what gets off pre-pubescent nerds between looking at 18+ porno? Because they get paid to do it by
TROLLS INCITE FLAME WARS BY AD HOMINEM ATTACKS: the sole reason any "troll" goes to a forum is to burn off their hatred for themselves. They attack
anyone who reminds them of "how they used to be" before they "wised up" to "reality." This bully-mentality is exhibited mostly in the great ape
family, and has been seen as "savage" and alike the behaviour of the "wild man" (bigfoot) since the reign of Gilgamesh in Kish. This mildly
homo-erotic, sophomorically jocular, sarcastic and abusive, abrasively uninformed and in general "snot-nosed" mal-attitude exhibited by these
individuals is to broadcast their own worst attributes onto strangers, rendering them perceieved enemies, and then to draw angry attention to the
stranger for exhibiting their own ill trait. This is all to suck energy out of the crowd. They have no ability to lead if put in charge, so they all
end up as like drone insects, plugged into the queen-bee's hive-mentality.
TROLLS ARE ALLOWED TO OPERATE OPENLY BY MODERATORS: this is, not to beat a dead horse, and as I have said elsehwere on these forums before, how Hitler
won the vice-chancellorship. He simply put so much pressure on Grand Chancellor Bismark, and paid so many of this type of person to join his party,
that Bismark felt powerless beside the "Bohemian corporal," and caved into allowing Hitler the Vice Chancellor position. It was the bat of an eye
after that Bismark died, and immediately after that, the Reichstag fire decree declared the Third Reich a police state under Martial Law. Am I saying
the ATS mods are knowing accomplices of these Spook-paid Trolls, or even unwitting conspirators after the fact for their agreeing to keep silent? No,
I am not. I don't know them well enough to call them cowards and compare them to Bismark. No, that is not what I would like anyone to think I am
TROLLS ATTACK THE CORE PREMISE OF ANY FORUM: If the forum were about botany, and the trolls were hired to bust up the forum about botany, they would
crash in (or at least two or three at once would create six to ten multple accounts) and 1) start making rude comments to new forum members about
their taste in flora, B) claim the older posters were weak for not "debunking" the "radicals" who questioned their tastes, and ultimately 3)
attack the administration openly for mis-managing the forum and allowing such low-class florsists anywhere near the precious opinions of the
oh-so-intelligent and award-worthy regular posters. Following this, they then vanish, thus leaving all the flowery little Sneeches branded and
confused. All in a day's pay for a "fork-boy."
So, if you children out there in internet fantasy land want to try to track down a troll, when they say something you find highly dubious or
cautionable, you should send them a U2U. If they do not write back and do not read it, and do not log on again, and eventually their account is
deleted, or they don't come back ever again (on that aco#), then you will know that person was a PAID DISINFORMATION AGENT. However the only way to
know for sure would be to have the Moderator's help in each instance. Mostly moderators of forums that have a high ratio of trolls feel disempowered
to do their duty. However there remain some among them who would at least keep track for a while before considering whether to act on it or not. As I
say though, I cannot speak on the ATS staff, individually, because I am new here.
WARNING:: TROLLS ARE ALWAYS RECRUITING: trolls are energy-vampires. They will accuse anyone who is friendly of being a spy, because they are spies
themselves. They will make friends with people by attacking a random stranger, then waiting to see who defends or agrees. They approach those who
agree, and get them to spy on those who defended the hapless victim of the verbal abuse. If a troll accuses you of ANYTHING, it is because that is
their OWN belief they are attacking by attacking you. You are nothing but the straw inside their own diversionary argument. So if a wwwdottroll says,
"you are in a cult," when you aren't, it is because they are in a cult, not you. Etc. This psychological process is called nowdays
"transference," but it used to be called "Florence Nightengale" syndrome, from shell-shocked soldiers falling in love with their VA nurse.
WARNING:: TROLLS ARE DANGEROUS COWARDS: if cornered, they will react with the full amount of psychic-fear they have fed off of their victims. Do not
approach a troll alone. They will win against almsot any individual. They never win against a group.
As far as skeptics and believers goes, the whole argument's a strawman. mrmask's a troll. All the rest's a "scam."
PS. who or what is "Phage"?
