Trolls Here, There, Everywhere

The comment sections are the juicy part of most articles nowadays. Especially here on the Daily Paul sometimes. It is very interesting to read other's perspectives and viewpoints, it is also VERY educational.

There are more and more troll arguments in the comments now, taking much from important information that can be garnered by a reader of those comments. A good way to deal with any influx of such activity is to simply give it a thumbs down and move on. When the posts are responded to, then it takes away from the discussion...as it is meant to do.

There are claims of "Obama" creating a 3,500 man team of social networking warriors. There is also information out there that allegedly comes from persons who have worked in such positions for shady political interest groups. The tactics they describe are extremely plausible and well thought out.

From first hand experience, there is an obvious presence of these social networking individuals at the Yahoo website. You can click names there to see the viewers past comments. The same inflammatory comments are made in great numbers there, which effectively keeps a flow of comments that moves any meaningful ones out of view fast. Anyways, it probably happens all across the net, but the wisest thing to do is ignore them and not engage.

Not to mention the hysteria...I've even been called a troll here! Ok, I'll admit that sometimes I might be off base on my opinions, misinformed, say things I shouldn't sometimes, or even start spewing after too big a dose of AJ.....but come on... lol

They used to be individuals, but now they rove in packs.


now you are trolling each other.

I am going to troll and ironically upvote this 'jewel encrusted' thread.

I'm always called a troll

I'm always called a troll because I disagree with the general themes of some discussions and I refuse to just leave without voicing my opinion.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

Grow up ...

Grow up and get a life.


Get a real


What do you mean?

What do you mean? Rick Stone is my real name, I don't ever hide behind a cowardly screen name and attack people anonymously from the shadows. I prefer to be up front and in your face.


Excuse me?

I have a life. It's called sitting in front of a computer. You may not call that a life, but that's just your opinion. I don't accept society's definition of having a life. If people want to call life partying, traveling, getting laid, and being social, that's their subjective opinion. It doesn't make how I choose to live my life any less of a life. My pursuit of happiness is being alone and voicing my outspoken opinion. Now, YOU grow up and stop trying to tell people how they should live.

Please come join my forum if you're not a trendy and agree with my points of view.

You have just...

You have just made my point for me, I could not have done it any better. Two thumbs up for you.


I've proven what point? Your

I've proven what point? Your subjective views of the proper way to live a life? Fuck you.

The Family EXPOSED! Who is behind it all. A MUST SEE


Site that was emailed to me today.I do not know what to think or say but it would be greatly appreciated if someone would check this out also and let me know what you think.


Also google Greenburg family.

The author jumps

to conclusions.

Good ol' wellaware, taking crazy to new levels.

I especially like their "Ron Paul is Sir Ian" page. "Undeniable, indisputable proof" LOL


I have been doing...

I have been doing photo restoration since 1996 and I have worked on thousands of faces. To the untrained eye two photos can appear to be the same person. Simple things like ear shape, size, how much it sticks out, do they have attached lobes or bulbus lobes can verify one way or the other. The proportional distance between the bottom of the nose and the top of the lip is another indicator. There are many indicators.
Some of the photos on those sites I put in the "maybe" category but a high percentage I put in the "you are really reaching" category. And the remainder I put in the "no way no how, I am not going for it" category.


The well aware stuff is

The well aware stuff is bogus.

Oh man, they hitting the youtube videos..

Yep, they are there pushing hard to sell the "they did it 'cause they crazy" with reference to suicide bombers. Also the tried and true "conspiracy theorist", "kook", sort of name calling.


Anyways...word just in....Mother of boys claims it was a set up. She claims her sons had worked with the FBI for three to five years prior. She herself had been in contact with the FBI regarding their formal relationship with her two sons before all of this happened.

What were the boy's motives again? Oh yeah, they were "extremists". I'd say putting a military force in the streets of Boston is extreme.

Um I think that she was

Um I think that she was saying that the FBI had been in contact with her son. Not that he was working with them. According to his youtube and Facebook...he had a big interest in jihad.

Troll. Just upvote him. Do

Troll. Just downvote him. Do not respond.

Huh? Are you calling me a

Sorry. I viewed your history

Sorry. I viewed your history and you don't seem to be a troll.

Thanks. Perhaps I should

Thanks. Perhaps I should clarify too. It was hard understanding what the woman was trying to say. There was a language barrier.

Why delete? This is a good discussion.

Yeah..I couldn't really

Yeah..I couldn't really understand what she was trying to say. I had to listen to it a couple times. What was said elsewhere and I can't remember where I read it...but he was being watched by the FBI because of his interest or his involvement in Jihad. The conclusion was that what she was saying was perhaps he's been questioned before by the FBI about his involvement with jihad.

The work of both the son and

The work of both the son and mother would be to get them out of charges, how informers are usually recruited.

That would explain why the son wasn't deported on a domestic violence charge, and what happens to the stealing clothes charge for the mother.

So her claim is collaborated by some of the known facts, as well as having happened many times before.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

I am not aware of charges ...

... against either son or mother.

Do you have a link or would you summarize what happened and when?

Would it be a good filter to

Would it be a good filter to look at the history? If I see something out of whack I can probably check this person's history.

At this point, some of these

At this point, some of these trolls have been registered for a year or more.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

Just down vote

If you just give it a quick down vote, that's a good filter. Plus if everyone does it, it will make them hidden very quickly.

But we can't go getting all offended and people getting their panties in a knot about getting down voted now and then. Typically a down vote is last resort, and usually go with the just ignore option.

Good point ...

... I usually don't downvote anybody because everyone should have their say even if I don't agree.

But when someone is just insulting and attacking and not actually discussing the subject, they deserve a downvote to get their ad hominem post out of the way.
