Interesting thread admittedly, and this is a topic which always seems to pop up every few weeks/months - But, I guess that's no surprise
really given the nature of what's routinely discussed here on ATS I suppose...
I have to be completely honest though, and this may not be a popular opinion but remember it is of course just my opinion as a member here, but I
really don't believe there is any disinfo agents here, I honestly don't. In fact I think the disinfo debate is rather silly if anything. I also
think the vast majority of people almost see it as a given around here and I just don't understand that at all. I mean let's be honest here, are we
all really that important? No, not in my opinion. We're just a collection of people who like to discuss Aliens, who like to discuss Chemtrails, who
like to discuss politics, who like to discuss conspiracies on the whole and so on. I like to think those Intelligence groups have much bigger fish to
fry than us.
Do we, the collective we that is, really think any Intelligence agency is routinely monitoring and then influencing an online message board such as
us? Again, personally I just don't think so and I really don't think we're, as a whole that is, all that important to them. That's not to say
Intelligence of some kind hasn't made It's way here in some form or another at some point, but I certainly don't buy that any groups are here in a
routinely basis specifically to spread disinformation, to sway the discussion away from something and the like. I dare say that's a little bit of
It's unfortunate, far too often people get bogged down over this topic. They personally attack others, they repeatedly throw out accusations and so
on. It's become something of a witch hunt in fact, members desperately looking out for who could be working for the "man." In reality, I think we
ought to just enjoy ourselves already, start focusing on our own personal research and just enjoy the discussions and debates which often take place
Sure, they will get heated from time to time, that's the way it is and that's the way It's always going to be. On the internet and in real life in
fact. That's something we all will have to deal with, no argument there. But some people just get soo stuck on the disinformation topic, or some
others mindlessly throw out the accusations when they're losing in a debate and it's such a drag to see in my opinion, It's a real down side to
participating here. Some are so convinced "they're" here they get paranoid and actually forget to enjoy themselves, and they completely forget to
actually discuss and focus on the topic at hand.. Which is actually rather ironic when you think about it.
So all in all no, I don't think disinformation agents are here and, this being my opinion as a member and now a staff member, I've never personally
come across any reason to believe they are here. I just think some people need to stop being so paranoid, stop throwing out accusations, stop getting
so bogged down with a modern conspiracy witch hunt and just start focusing on actually getting somewhere and continuing your own personal search for
the truth - The importance of which I can't stress enough.
If, god forbid, you do come across a post which you think is an attempt at derailing the thread or an attempt at spreading dis or misinformation (and
there is a massive difference between the two which we musn't forget here), then either ignore or alert it - Preferably the latter as the staff will
always take the time to look at it, have a discussion over it and then take action if needs be. There, problem solved. You can always alert whenever
you feel the need to, no one is stopping you. But the main thing is you don't respond and surely that's understandably really - After all if you
think a post is derailing why would anyone want to highlight that post? Surely no one would and of course no one should. Just move on and reply to
those who want to learn, not those who want to be a nuisance.
Anyway, like I said, this is certainly an interesting topic and I imagine It's one that is always going to come about and be discussed at length, but
once again I just really don't believe there is any disinformation agents here - But, I'm just throwing out an alternative opinion for people to
read through, take it as you will.
