Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean you're not out to get me!

But seriously I meant it more for the various trolling techniques than for the government entrapment aspect hinted at in some parts.

I think that what comes around goes around and if you harrass people, invade their privacy, who cares why, don't be surprised if someday somebody does the same thing to you.

yes, I have.  In nearly EVERY PERSON that posts.  Thinking the traits described on that link apply only to "spies" or paid shills is absurd.

-Reality is not determined by your lack of comprehension.
-Never let facts stand in the way of a good conspiracy theory.
-If I wanted to pay for commercials I couldn't skip I'd sign up for Hulu Plus.
-There are no bad ideas, just great ideas that go horribly wrong.
If you have to insist that you've won an Internet argument, you've probably lost badly. - Danth's Law

I'm still not sure whether this is tongue in cheek or not. :unsure2:

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

Sorry OverSword, I tried but couldn't get past #5 Anger Trolling...

From this the most violent in the group can be effectively singled out for reverse IP location and possibly local enforcement tracking.

Thanks for posting the link though...

Now this looks fun. I am going to save it until i get time to read it with a nice cup of tea and some chocolate digestives. :tu:

the funny thing about all this is how people agree to say "ah well, the truth will eventually come out"

...like they don't appreciate the fact you sometimes need a freedom of info request to get said truth.

..so we know in many ways we're being lied to.


so when this truth finally emerges, do you think it's going to be closer to the governments side of the story or what all these 'crackpots' have been saying for years?

i expect most folks will **** the gear when this day comes around.

Interesting stuff OverSword.

It seems such tactics and strategy are played out daily at various places on the internet.  And in a modified style, with the presentation of the daily news on TV.
