That would be highly inappropriate and a matter for the staff to investigate.
I personally believe that forum gangs are at work here on ATS and more than anything the thread is about what to look for in ways of spotting one at
work than it is at singling out those involved in them.
They know who they are and what they are doing, and people who want to take the time to familiarize themselves with their tactics will easily spot
them too when they are at work.
We will never win the battle against trolls or forum gangs as soon as one is banned or one is shut down two more sprout up to take their places.
We are in the information age and as long as people turn to blogs and alternative news sites there will be organized attempts by the agenda driven
groups of the world to stilt and skewer and to try to suppress and color information that affects their agenda or group.
To imagine that isn’t happening and won’t happen and isn’t happening and won’t happen here on ATS is something you are free to do but that
still won’t stop forum gangs from operating and having an effect.
It gets much harder for them though when independent and open minded posters know how they operate and can then as a result limit their effectiveness
on a case by case basis when and where they appear.
Thanks for posting.
