So people who disagree with me are disinfo agents... Interesting.

I too think that they already had a program such as this implemented. Some people, on some forums or commenting on some articles just scream "government agent". To me, some people are just too obvious that they are spreading propaganda and the shame is that many people soak it up and buy these outlandish and illogical explanations and rebuttals.

I might have an idea about some of the existing disinfo agents on these boards, most probably have ran into them as reason & proof never seems to change their mind.


Yes.

Yes.


Don't take sarcasm to be personal, unless you are admitting to something.

Its probably a good sign, it means they are worried to many people are finding out about thier lies and hidden practices. And since they don't control the information that gets posted in the net (yet) they feel the need to try and counter it.

It probably won't work and may even educate a few feds who are just cogs on the machine....

If you want to see a whole bunch of disinfo agents just look at the Myspace politics forum

Personally i find it offensive that my public funds are being used to spy on my political preferences. Public funds are not for that, that is a partisan activity. These people are not going to come forward an say they are literally govt. agents. For me that is fraud. Harper has made his feeble fascistic intentions rather obvious with this. It probably is just 2 or 3 people with seems rather pathetic. If he has to resort to pretending to be an ordinary citizen in order to try and convince people I think he has already lost the battle.

No and I don't think that's what he meant either, but make no mistake that it's easy to make an account here and you can bet your bottom dollar that a lot are logged in right now...and I wouldn't call it disagreeing people are mocked and discredited by these people to make others think "oh he said it's a lie so I believe it's a lie now to as well" I'm certainly not saying that all the conspiracies on this site are true by any means...But for the one's that are, some try their damnedest to make fun and mock and shout over the truth...

I know a lot of people here make unsubstantiated claims. There are some areas though where we have an overwhelming collection of evidence. I would like to see them try to rebut those issues.

I would also enjoy a nice debate with some of the more educated members of this board. Of course some might be dis-info agents themselves...

Phage... any comments?


J/K of course....

All jokes aside, I bet we have already been "infiltrated" if you want to call it that.

The firm alerts the government to questionable online comments and then employees in Foreign Affairs or the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, who have recently been trained in online posting, point the authors to information the government considers more accurate.




*Low whistle*

Great find. That's really scary...

How do I get that job?

All joking aside, I agree that I don't mind being pointed to more information, but this is just creepy. I guess it depends on how the argument is presented in part... I mean, would they attempt to discredit a poster or simply point you in the direction of a link?

Well,this makes some sense if you really think about it.


Recent news stories have surfaced about government employees looking at and downloading porn online instead of actually working.


I suppose joining social forums and responding to criticism against the government while at work could be considered "working".

That is just a waste of taxpayer's hardships. They don't really need agents to do that, there are already plenty of sheeple believing whatever the govt and television tells them on the internet. I actualy don't mind them, they just make me realise how lucky I am to be able to see through their lies.

I see there is some issues that need to be corrected here...

May I direct you to something closer to the truth.

Please review, there will be questions on your income tax return.

Then if they are to be forthright and honest in their use of public money to this use, they'd better to good about using FACTS and not OPINIONS or PSYCHOLOGICAL TRICKS to do so.

Otherwise, they'll be feeding the beast of stupidity in the long haul.

Of course, I think the government will just use it to put out OPINIONS and BIAS based on who is forming government and the political bias of the bureaucrat's department.
