....youtube 'BOTS' smearing Dr. Ron Paul 24/7........Submitted by redhankyspanky on Fri, 04/18/2008 - 09:28
this is deadly serious folks:
The comments area in youtube is overrun by automated 'bots', that spam horrible smear comments about RP day and night around the clock. THese things are repetitive, and post the same comments over and over, but to the casual browser they appear to be random comments.
I know these are designed to poison the mind of the casual browser, and that those grounded in reality (informed individuals) will see through it. But we know what the state of the union is today, and sadly, most folks are uniformed.
What this amounts to is propoganda, but it is HIGHLY orgnaized. This cant just be some college kid. I suspect it is state sponsored.
They are likening RP supporters to McVeigh types, that RP "hates blacks", or is "on the payroll of Americas enemies".
This is doing a lot of damage to RPs image in the collective unconciousness of Americans. Ive been "battling" these jerks for about a week now, constantly pointing out that these are bots. I believe the operators of these things can take them "autopilot" and post at will, but 95% of the time, they just repeat the same horrible lies over and over, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
This is a highly organized smear campaign against the good doctor, and its bothering me (to put it mildy).
What can we do? I figured if I could find anyone to help, that I would find them here. If I cant find help here, Im obviously going to be on my own.
How can we counter this, or get rid of these guys?
please help, this is simply wrong. Its doing a lot of damage, and they know it.
