I haven't been able to hop on the boards for a few nights; hence, my late reply but I thought this was worth replying to, even at this late date.
Quite honestly, this is a perspective I hadn't given much thought to.
Firstly, your comparison of thesmokinggun being akin to TMZ is spot on, and secondly, when one considers the benign content that was "leaked" it
does beg the question of why? With that said, you opened my eyes to another perspective and being the overall media cynic that I am, I wanted to
acknowledge your comments.
Thanks for snapping my momentary liberalism back to the middle of the road where it belongs .
Glad to have helped, and that someone on this board reads with comprehension
All to often I feel like my posts are invisible and many times those who do respond seem to respond to just argue and not read and understand the
context, which could be my fault because electronic communication is not the best way to go.
Anyways, glad you see the potential for this as a PR stunt or false flag. People get hacked EVERY day and have their pictures released somewhere, but
this one is different because it is very high profile. In another thread, member
has a very good insight into these "elites" emails being
screened by humans to make sure to confidential/secrets are passed through insecure communication.
Even if someone manages to hack these guys, they are highly unlikely to find anything incriminating. So to me this still seems like a false flag
against the internet, much like the other recent headline hacks:
- Anonymous on the .Gov (Nothing happened damaging to the gov, just grabbing headlines)
- This hack - nothing
- Britam hack - nothing secret except for confidential company info, but nothing nefarious / conspiracy
I'm sure more will be "hacked" and spotlighted by the media because they want internet control. The same thing is going on with guns, because the
government wants gun control... Or to make it simple: the government wants control of everything.
