Just to add briefly, Cpellatt also had an expose she did on evil military testing and whatnot completely hacked by a Don Harkins of the Idaho Observer. He turned her solid work into tinfoil.
Turns out the guy has ties to The Spotlight.
I'm just saying what you have done is good work. I think it is important what we have done. We are not telling folks to spend too much time into all the rabbit holes but just to consider the possibility that a lot of the internet is rigged.
I think we have made a dent into the insidious, astroturfing network.
The Randi Rhodes 9/11 message board has become invisible to the public. I don't think there is anyone in there anyway without an agenda. The debunkers are quite ridiculous and predictable. This CarmenJonze has to be a paid troll. I suspect the same with someone named Bushwa and in fact the moderating crew there appears dodgy.
I tried to get Brad Friedman to look into a bunch of stuff like this. The WRH forum trolls even ended up going after mne at BradBlog. I used to trust Brad, started writing there, when I noticed him going after Markos Zuniga of DailyKos. But even those attacks were gatekeepertsh.
Ok, one last anectdote. There was a guy named Dredd who quit BradBlog a bit before I did. There was a big story that came out on a San Diego Republican named Tony Krvaric. This prominent Republican turns out to have a shady past including major hacking.
He has all these ties to big insiders. Brad pretty much ignored the whole thing. Dredd was digging up stuff and Brad completely ignored it. That is gatekeeping101.
They create these internet icons, cults of the personality. Rivero. Arianna. Et al. And then whatever those people ignore affects what their hard core readers are learning.
Then they have their systems of emailing. They gain the confidence of the prospective bloggers. You have to check out the Hal Turner story. It's quite the anecdote. He's a blatant nazi. But it looks like he is a fake one too.
You must know about cointelpro. It feels like they are all o0ver the internet in various forms.
Sorry for the ramble. It's tough to stop once one gets going.
