Something fishy is going on here at the Daily Paul

I have noticed something very strange here at the Daily Paul. I have been visiting DP for a few years now and have been a member since around a year and a half ago. I haven't gotten into it as much as some of you others but I def. visit the site daily, judging the top posts myself by how many of them I am tempted to open up. This is a fun little game I like to play, I have even opened up all ten of the stories because they were so libertarianly juicy, but recently, and I mean very recently, I have noticed something way out of place.

Now I don't have any direct post to share with you and I apologize for that, I wish I could have seen the trend sooner to start keeping a list but I didn't. I think the DP is being hijacked. Someone or something is taking our philosophy and twisting it just enough to confuse you, redirect your focus, and tease your sonar like instincts for truth.

I have no worries here, because I feel we are smarter than they are, I feel that we don't just read an article here and walk away. For all the silly posts, and confused rhetoric I see on this site I also see people learning all the time and checking each others facts, that is the beauty of this format. But I urge you to pay attention to detail in the next coming months because I think that this has just started, This can not distract us, we have a race to win.

Sorry to hear that ralph

I usually enjoy your posts.

Anyway, don't blame the moderators. In the final end, the buck stops with me. I'm well aware of what went on when I was on vacation, and I stand behind the final results.

There was a reason fishy was banned. She thought she had some kind of an 'in' with me that gave her special privileges. She was mistaken.

He's the man.

I miss Fishyculture, and thought this thread might be about her.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

There is actually a secret

There is actually a secret forum through a hidden url at the DailyPaul.
It is rumored that even Ron himself posts there.

Nothing New Here

Looks the same to me. Seems to be slightly more conspiracy type stuff since the election but that's because Ron Paul retired and there isn't much else to talk about.

It's probably your imagination :)

Quit wasting our time, please


If by that you mean paid trolls .. ?

I don't think they are or would get much traction around here.

There are enough people on this board that would immediately call them out on the bs.

Actually I see it all the time. Maybe infiltration tactics work better on a place like HufPo or Blaze imo.

Not here.

good satire! the whole vague

good satire! the whole vague claims w no specifics evidence lol u did good i almost fell for it.

The reality is that...

Not everyone is going to agree with each other. Mods disagree with posters and posters disagree with other posters. While this isn't anything new, it is new to some of the people here. Throwing around names, sensationalizing postings and making baseless accusations are just the less mature element here manifesting their dislike for disagreement.

Ok, do you have an example?

Ok, do you have an example? Like they are saying something a certain way, or etc? Doesnt have to be an actual post, just a example of what you are talking about.
Do you mean like instead of saying "we reached the DUI checkpoint" it would say "we reached the routine DUI checkpoint"(just to take something from a recent post)
