“How the Masters of the Universe Infect the Internet”
“I am writing here to come out of the closet as a paid shill. For a little over six months, I was paid to spread disinformation and argue political points on the Internet.“

CONFESSIONS OF A HASBARAT:
“My task?“To support Israel and counter anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic posters.” Fine with me. I had no opinions one way or another about Israel, and who likes anti-Semites and Nazis? Not me, anyway. But I didn’t know too much about the topic.
“That’s OK,” she said.“You’ll pick it up as you go along. For the most part, at first, you will be doing what we call “meme-patrol.” This is pretty easy. Later if you show promise, we’ll train you for more complex arguments, where more in-depth knowledge is necessary.”
-------
“This section also contained a number of hints for de-railing conversations that went too far away from what we were attempting.
“These strategies included various forms of personal attacks, complaining to the forum moderators, smearing the characters of our opponents, using images and icons effectively, and even dragging the tone of the conversation down with sexual innuendo, links to pornography, or other such things.
-------
“It also had quite detailed info on the moderators and the most popular regged posters on each site: location (if known), personality type, topics of interest, background sketch, and even some notes on how to “push the psychological buttons” of different posters. Although I didn’t work for xxx, I did see they had a lot of info on your so-called “WATS” posters here (the ones with gold borders around their edges).“Focus on the popular posters,” my trainer told me.
----
“A lot of my job was de-railing and spamming threads that didn’t go our way, or making accusations of racism and anti-Semitism. Sometimes I had to simply lie and claim a poster said something or did something “in another thread” they really hadn’t said or done
-----
“I felt bad about this…but in the end I felt worse about the possibility of losing the first job I’d been able to get since losing my “real” job.” CONTINUED
There now, Feel better?

Whew! For a while there he had us thinking he was going to have a <GASP> conversation. But no, it's Saturday, back to cutting and pasting and quoting his made-up sources. It's a good thing too. When he breaks his normal routine, giant tornadoes rip through the heartland and bridges collapse everywhere. If he hadn't gone back to normal the Atlantic hurricane season would have begun early and New Orleans would be doomed.

Why do you care which posts are missing? All the relevant ones are here, as are you. Don't miss the Forest because of the trees, Lips. Whatever you think you're doing, isn't working.

You appear to be playing with yourself, Yimminy! LOL Having fun? BTW, I had nothing to do with the posts disappearing -- just sayin'. It was an observation that I made.

How do we get through to her that there's no going back? Even if she has half the posts removed...who cares? Look, if that gets her juices flowing I'd be willing to get a lot more profane.

It will take more than profanity to get those juices flowing. Ever hear the term, "Drygulch"? Looks like yimminy getting lots of press. Geez, I step outside for a few and I'm being courted. Bless my soul.

I've always said that you were the one who got the girls but couldn't you dial it back a notch? There's no internet mythology yet but I can think of examples in the natural world analogous to a creature that sweeps into a thread and consumes posts, leaving the numerical order in shambles :>)

That's all you got, Webster? Every post you make shows how shallow your thought processes are. Try an original thought that doesn't involve somebody else s diction. I know it's hard, but you can do it. Really. Dig down and find yourself. Well, not that far down.

Tip replacement isn't an exact science, yet. Be patient. Have a good Memorial Day celebration. We be going to an outside event today where hoodies are required. Fishing in the AM.

Shallow is you. Never anything from you except criticism. Check back on your posts. This ain't the Eagle Channel. We've been here 4 years. You? GFYS.
