I applaud you for having a very positive view.
Unfortunately, I disagree with that view as entirely too pollyanna.
As cyber war has been declared on several fronts by several areas of power, we can expect an increase in disruptive theads and postings. I don't
think I need to elaborate the various mechanisms that can be used--we see such daily but can't prove them.
That plan of attack--more than a mere tactic--works well for those that want to hide or control their activities. It has two functions: to demean the
whole of ATS and to defang bitting threads that they don't want to see.
The internet, despite what we hear and even preach about its ability to bring the truth to people, is the greatest propaganda tool ever developed and
it will be used extensively by TBTB to our detriment. (They just don't have it all under control to their liking yet.)
