But back to the trackers, I believe at least one of them sends a direct-line alert to the trolls to jump on a thread and pounce it. I've experimented with this notion often by posting intentionally 'troll-friendly' posts and gauging the response. As well as other threads that lend themselves to trolling. It seems to be the ones that are speculative that get the most attention. Those and the ones about something that is demonstrably false seem to get kicked back into conversation in probably some discrediting ploy.
Will be interesting to see if the number of trackers drops off at 5:00 Utah local time...
9-11 was a panda job.
