Forum Post: Spam and Conspiracy Counter Attack to Begin in a Few Hours

Posted 2 years ago on Jan. 1, 2012, 9:56 a.m. EST by Thrasymaque (-2138)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Iv'e developed scripts to counter attack spam and conspiracy theory postings. My counter attack will commence sometime in the next 10 hours.

The counter attack will consist of labeling spam and conspiracy theory postings with a short encoded mark automatically published in the comments of said postings. This will permit moderators to employ SQL to delete these postings with one database query. I will send the algorithm to decode my markings to jart and the moderators.

The step above will bump spam and theory conspiracy postings on top of the pile. I will then run another script to bump good posts back to the top thereby instantly sinking spam and theory conspiracy postings to the bottom where they belong.

This procedure is automated and takes about 2 minutes to run. I will run it each time the forum gets dirty.

You can help by posting URLs to good posts in the comments of this page. I need a collection of such URLs for my scripts. An example of a URL for a good post is:

http://occupywallst.org/forum/2-us-flags-burned-at-occupy-charlotte-land-group-i/

I'm also working on a script to collect the IPs of these spammers. I will implement it in the next few days. Once I have a list of their IPs, I will send it to jart and the moderators so they can ban the regions these spammers are from.

This counter-attack presents a certain risk for myself. The moderators might be angry and ban me. Worse, the spammers might try to counter-attack and install a virus on my machine. I have taken precautions against the latter risk and will be conducting my attack from an old machine I normally do not use. I will also be using another username and session_id when conducting my attack.

If you have ideas or want to provide some assistance, please contact me by private message, or publish a comment on this page. If you have a private server, I would be more than happy to share my scripts so that you can actively participate in this counter attack.

Thank You.

You'd better hurry, the forum list is looking more like TV guide every minute.

[-] 1 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

I'm observing right now. I want to see their backlash on this post. I'll run a reduced version of my script to clear the board in about 5 minutes.

TV Spammer fears email verification of forum registrations.

As fast and hard as the spam is hitting the forum right now I would have to assume that your plan is scaring the shit out of them. They do not want people seeing this post and joining your counter attack.

Go baby. Go, go... We're all behind you.

Yes that is Transmarue covering threads like he said he would do.

[-] 0 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

Ditto !

[-] -1 points by LongDaysnight (354) 2 years ago

Yes that is the work of Thrasymaque, notice he said he would bring them to the top. Report him!!!

The problem is where do you draw the line on questioning the government vs conspiracy theory?

I personally have some serious doubts on the OBL press release. Would that be considered blocked? I think the chance that the gov lied to the entire country for the chance to raid a pakistani government building is very serious.

OWS was always led by 1%ers. Their rejection of "conspiracy theories" is proof enough of that.

My favorite conspiracy theorist: Galileo Galilei. The catholic church found out they could silence a man, but the truth is bullet proof.

[-] 1 points by BlueRose (1437) 2 years ago

Yes, my posts about NDAA were apparently taken down. This site, I am afraid, does not represent OWS.

Nope, not the one. And yeah, you can access certain "hidden" posts, which many of mine have become, with direct links, but they will not show on the list. Of course, I am speaking to others, not to you, as I know what you are doing.

You want my posts banned, I think you answer accordingly.

Does anyone have the sites search engine handy? I am bumping as fast as possible. But, that search engine would rock.

I don't see any difference yet .

How's it going , Thrasymaque ?

[-] 0 points by aahpat (1407) 2 years ago

The bump test looks good.

Will you substitute the term "bump test" for part of the authentic good post title in the future? I think that that would make the 'recent posts' sidebar column look better.

Conspiracy:

Law . an agreement by two or more persons to commit a crime, fraud, or other wrongful act.

any concurrence in action; combination in bringing about a given result.

Boy - good thing this never happens in the halls of money and power

Thank you for helping this site, and for fighting conspiracy theories.

[-] -3 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

Conspiracy theories are not always just conspiracies , and are a way to discuss things people aren't aware of , so I would just go for the spam !

oh and , here's ; junior024112 bringing posts back up to the top again !

Isn't that nice ?!?

[-] -2 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

Ya, thanks junior!

Conspiracy theories contravene forum rule #2 and that's why I will be targeting them as well. Most are ludicrous, and if people want to talk about these issues there are already a zillion other sites for this.

If the moderators change their minds and allow conspiracy theories here, I will stop attacking them. I won't change my mind otherwise, so it's best to take up the issue with those in charge.

Hey we have identified you, cease and desist now. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAMOjyx_sss

I'm not junior ! I'm ropeknot !

Junior's the spammer wannabe !

[-] -2 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

I know, I was thanking him not you. Sorry for the confusion ;-)

[-] 1 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

[-] 0 points by Thrasymaque (-2138) 2 years ago

I'm thanking him for bumping this particular post. That's all. Don't worry, he'll be under attack in a few hours. I just thanked him because you brought it up. It was sarcasm.

[-] 2 points by ropeknot (359) 2 years ago

It sounds like you're trying to help .

I hope so and good luck , just don't dictate free speech that isn't spam .

Many things on this site aren't all about the O.W.S. directly , but is free speech and agreed to by responding parties and is NOT SPAM !
