So, I recently had a fun time experimenting with posting about Bitcoin on a conspiracy forum, with some interesting results. Any feedback is appreciated. Smiley

GLP is a psyop.

That was my conclusion as well from my brief experience on that site. Any topic that is pro-Bitcoin gets censored, or gets shilled into oblivion and the OP never gets a chance to make a good rebuttal because they probably got banned from continuing to post like I was.

It makes me wonder... if GLP is indeed a psyop, then the government has a greater force against it than I previously thought.

I was amazed by the number of people on that site that claimed an EMP could wipe out Bitcoin... do they even know how the Internet works?

Did you like the "Mashed Potato!" comment? I think I'll make it my new moniker.
If you get a chance, check out my postings from several years ago,

http://slightlyoffended.blogspot.ca/

Enjoy, and keep writing about this subject!

PS. watch out for the heavy-hitters in the pro-trolling groups, they play rough. Although, they do appear occupied on Reddit and other key sites.
Any heavy-commented blogs or bitcoin-centric sites are the key targets these days. Rants of "Ponzi!" are quickly being substituted with "Watch out for Gub'ment!" scandal and weird twistings of logic, anything to pull conversation away from what is important.

The only conspiracy is the aim to taint the reputation of bitcoin at any cost. You can destroy bitcoin with propaganda as efficiently as you can destroy the technology it is based on, never underestimate the foolishness of the masses on a large scale, a bitcoin prohibition era fueled by the masses fear whereas people would actually beg the government to protect them from the horrors of bitcoin, even if it makes the lower classes starve and billions are spent on it while the debt is further increased.

"Do you really want your children to have the possibility of using such horrible services as X and Y on the deepnet which are only made possible with BTC? We must protect the children!" - Oh the children, their favorite tactic.

The tactics of endangerment and tactics of innocence are moves we will see, along with many more. This is the stage where they will throw everything at the bitcoin meme and see what sticks. The tactic most likely next in the barrel will be, "Didn't ya kill my brother?" made famous by the song sung by Alexi Sayle. Pick a fight over some impugned wrong, and play it for all it's worth, hoping to attract attention from strong opposition. Best to ignore the muckrakers and build up support with the newly attracted non-aligned forum members.
Many of the support sites, such as exchanges, merchants, and dealers are seeing reports of fraud at a staggering rate. This may be accurate, but we have no way of knowing without publicly airing disputes with basis/no basis, which again takes us off target.
This could be perfect opportunity for ambitious groups to consolidate and form a protective standards of the commons beyond the pale of moderation. A simple, "State of the Bitcoin Realm" daily without bias Wink and  not devolved into rancor.

Just because there are 31 reads about Bitcoin doesn't mean that they aren't actively censoring it.

They have 31 posts over a 6-month period, and search interest for it on Google has skyrocketed. That hardly makes sense when you think about the demographics of that site, and their 1.4 million daily vistor count.

There should be tons of pro-Bitcoin posts on there, but there aren't. Think about it... Doesn't that seem a little strange given what we've seen this past month? There isn't even a post about Bitcoin in the past 30 days on that site.

Here is my Reddit post about it and there's a comment where someone else explains that they tried to post about Bitcoin and got banned as well:
