It would seem by your commentary on last Friday’s Warroom show that INFOCOMMS forum has become something less than what you might have wished for. Most Army members came to COMMS with every intention of getting involved in activism and sharing information. Things were coming along well in the beginning. Many members were posting ideas about how to get active. Before the first INFOCOMMS was wiped, I was working on Infowars.com stencils that could be printed, cut out and pressure washed on dirty pavement. Also on the other forum before it was deleted, I was involved in a collaboration effort with the Houston Infowars Army to edit videos they were posting to the forum.
Here is a video Houston Infowars Army took. I edited the video and hosted it on my YouTube channel. https://youtu.be/clypRyAqYhk
It was included in an Infowars article https://www.infowars.com/video-leftist-cries-when-confronted-by-its-ok-to-be-white-sign/
So, as you can see some good things were coming from the forum. At some point though, topic threads started to become saturated with two or three spammers who were using multiple accounts to rip up and derail threads. It was so bad at one point, almost no collaboration could be done there was so much senseless, inane junk to navigate through. The moderators did ban the offending accounts but, after a short time they were back with new accounts. It was at this time we learned how to flag comments and prompted others to join in so that we could at least hide some of the shitposting. Flagging is encouraged by the Discourse software that makes up INFOCOMMS. There is even a badge given for flagging. We finally had learned how to keep the Trolls, Spammers and Shitposters at bay. Then one day a known hacker named RackAttack makes a video addressing you and the first INFOCOMMS forum is taken down.
Now, all the information was lost and everyone had to start from scratch. Not only did we have to start from scratch but the moderators took away the ability to flag. When this was done INFOCOMMS WAS GIVEN TO THE SPAMMERS AND SHITPOSTERS! It remains that way today. The moderators disabled the one weapon we had to keeping a modicum of cohesion in the forum. So now, it is back to two or three spammers with multiple accounts who rip up and derail topic threads.
What can be done? With flagging turned off or set too high, we can’t do anything. It is built into the software for a reason. Please tell the moderators to turn flagging back to the default settings. Will this make INFOCOMMS perfect? No! The best way to run a forum is to have someone that everyone knows and can appeal to for getting things done. Without that the only thing that can keep the peace is, turn flagging back to default settings. Flagging can be used to quell bullshit…even my own should that be necessary!!!
It would be good if you could respond. Either way I will post this email on INFOCOMMS #2 as promised in this thread ==> Owen Knows About The Leftist Shitposting Trolls on INFOCOMMS
