Disinformation being strategically posted on this sub
So I am sure I am not the only noticing the huge amounts spam pressing an anti Biden sentiment here. While I dislike Biden as much as the next freedom loving american, it seems to be fairly suspicious when you look at the patterns of how they are posted.
Typically these account will post somewhere around 3 links to fairly well known shitty right wing reporting in a short window. Very occasionally they will comment on there own posts.
Of the accounts that are doing this, you never see there posts overlapping each other. You also never see them posting comments on each others posts even though they all seem to aggressively agree on everything. I have not noticed a specific pattern in the order that they post, but one seems to come up every few hours.
Another thing they all have in common as they all only post to this sub.
Additionally, if you go back into the history of these accounts you will often find they were posting pro bernie content back during the democratic primaries, but they were posting on this sub and were not active in any of the Bernie subs.
I dont want to name accounts here because obviously I have not done nearly enough research to make any sorts of claims but the agenda behind these accounts seems pretty straight forward.
I am curious if other people have seen this or have any thoughts on whether we would want mod’s to step in. My favorite part about this sub is the light moderation and the diverse opinions but it does make it susceptible to bad actors.
