Disinfo Series

WhoWhatWhy has published a series on the old forum troll/COINTELPRO document that’s been floating around the web for quite some time. I think it’s worth the read.

Milicent Cranor, “DISINFORMATION PART 1: HOW TROLLS CONTROL AN INTERNET FORUM; An Insider’s Guide to Online Disinformation,” WhoWhatWhy, 27 January 2016:

whowhatwhy.org/2016/01/27/disinformation-part-1-how-trolls-control-an-internet-forum/

Parts 2 and 3 are linked at the bottom of part 1.

Also, I’ve turned the “New COINTELPRO” post into a page at top {“COINTELPRO 2”} and rearranged the page tabs a bit.

What’s interesting about part 2 is how it seems like random people on the Internet do those very things in comment sections. It’s not like I frequent that many {though you will find a comment from me in part 3}. It’s just so strange how often it happens though.
