Hard to imagine your efforts to use your right to free speech is so easily fouled isn't it? A large portion of the traffic is artificial, it is "cognitive infiltration".-------- http://algoxy.com/poly/nwo_cognitive_infiltration.html
The strategy employed by the infiltration has 2 basic parts. 1) Dilution: These are the inane posts that are hard to believe anyone would actually make. this is the lowest level of infiltration Put yourself in the place of an infiltrator from the shadow government.
There is bot software that can carry on a halfway intelligent conversation. All you have to do is examine the movement then invent the petty issues that protesters of citizens might legitimately know. A list of these is created in advance which is good for a decent period of time and post text that is credible is written as example, the bot has a limited list of variations it can use to alter. At your discretion, using proxy IP, at the press of a button the post is made and followed automatically. You don't have to do anything. It displays the post the machine is responding to and provides an option for your input. If you don't respond right away, it makes the best answer it can. The character changes between you and the automation are visible, but not very. Not easy to read and know what you are looking at. It has a routine that will teach the bot your response style making this harder to see. You must specifically test the poster with logic and facts. Solution to the problem is the best test because an infiltrator will never recognize it no matter how obvious it is. At high levels, they mighty to retain credibility in discussion they know is monitored. Small leading points of solution are acknowledged, only to be able to continue without being exposed and dispose of the solution through false group consensus later.
Dilution is also repetition of the known problems and actions that do not actually work. Posters here recognize some of that. Dilution makes a confusing forum environment for people trying to carry on protracted discussion. In this form of dilution, 2 users acted out by the bot can rally aspects back and forth making a lively exchange which goes no where. No intelligent response can be gained there.
The lack of strategy employed in the movement lends to the success of infiltration. When there are no leaders, distraction is easy and the fact that the distracting element is nonsense and there is no authority to permanently dismiss it, makes it easy to maintain a false front of public opinion, by default the result is dysfunction. When there are only issues and no logical OWS strategy for solution, infiltrators bots, citizens and protesters can go around in circles of cognitive distortion driven by emotional reasoning forever, pretty much blocking the forum. Here is a page with assembled cognitive distortions.
Astroturfing is an identified method of secret infiltration. What is not known is the level of development of these methods for political interference with Americas NEED for function of free speech.
