I reckon that InfoWars simply doesn’t have the time or the money to hire/recruit moderators, so it’s up to the community to keep the board in its best shape. That involves keeping it attractive to new and current visitors. It’s not going to be attractive if it’s being flooded with schizophrenic nonsense and proven disinformation as was the case with “Mama Potato”. People are going to come here and think “ew”, and leave. Likewise, morale should be a concern. Alex has taken a political position, which is pro-MAGA and pro-Trump. All of his crew and every guest he has on, practically, are pro-Trump. Many believe that the pro-Trump movement is tied in with a battle of good vs evil. For that reason it’ll be discouraging when people here fearmonger about Trump or openly mock him.
What about “muh freespeech”? This board should no-more operate under the strictest observance of “free speech” than Alex’s show does (it doesn’t). He doesn’t have Donna Brazille on or the like because his audience would crucify him for it. Alex would be expected to deny his platform to certain people right?
With that being said, I suggest shills be identified with the following criteria:
- presents disinformation
- mocks Alex and Trump
- presents the idea that they’re in the “inner circle” or secret clique (used for intimidation or an excuse as source of misinformation)
- is very active, often posting empty thread after empty thread
- says schizophrenic/incoherent shit
