Well I guess I didn't articulate any good examples of what I meant. It's nothing special or anything though, just mundane normal stuff.
In real life you can get a feel for people, since you usually know what job they do other basic things. Walking down the street this means nothing because we don't stop and talk to people on the street 95% of the time. Point is there are probably people you know in real life that you try to tell them about ATS type subjects or news.
And they will REJECT it hardcore. Knee-jerk style.
We have seen all of these reactions before on ATS in the very threads and topics that are rejected in real life.
Depending on who the person is, their disposition and their tendencies, you have to treat each differently.
When I talk to my grandmother, and want her to be informed about certain aspects of our corrupt world and how I am against it and think it sucks, I will speak in the context of the Bible.
Now I am not religious, but I am very keen about what their book says.
This is a very strong advantage with this particular type of person, I can actually get her to admit that the government is bad. Now that may seem like nothing big, but she is one of those people that voted for G W Bush, twice ok. Twice.
I think I may have actually turned her against "Them" totally. I used Biblical references to establish a bridge between what she agrees with and what she may not want to admit.
It is using one of the tactics listed above in a particular format, the "Us vs Them" paradigm. "Either you're with us or you're against us."
I lay it out like this, either she agrees with Jesus, or she agrees with evil humans. This makes my job extremely easy, because she obviously chooses Jesus.

Awesome thread, OP.
If anyone has a problem identifying the disinfo agents who frequent ATS forums, they should read this thread. Our professional "debunkers" know exactly what they're doing and their techniques fit these to a "T."
