Yeah, if the competition (i.e. reddit) is for-profit and this one isn't, and if the competition is useful for controlled messaging and this one is less reliable on that account, I could definitely see that happening.

I always thought it was funny how people always react to conspiracy theory as if it's a bad word. Conspiracies happen all the time. People shouldn't distinguish between whether something sounds like a conspiracy theory or not; they should distinguish by whether whether a conspiracy theory is well-based or not.

Not to go full tinfoil hat here but I agree. I think this is the case with a lot of conspiracy theories. Things such as reptilians, dumbs, project bluebeam, and flat earth (before it became a meme) especially. They generate a large volume of traffic to obscure websites but it never looks like valid discussion. They say the same things in different ways and often in a sort of word salad style broken english. Often in both posts and comments, frequently they seem to be unrelated as though triggered by certain keywords. All of this to me seems indicative of botposts. But it tends to happen in places they couldn't monetize it, despite the clickbait phrases sometimes used. Either places like here or 4chan where someone else foots the bill for hosting, or beforeitsnews posts and youtube videos that never meet the criteria to earn money.

As for why I think you are spot on. To act as disinfo. A large volume of obvious insane shit serves to drown out any real or damaging information that may have leaked. The mere association will impair entire fields of legitimate inquiry.

sorta. nasa IS lying im just not sure why or about what. the flat earth is just the loony conspiro theory they put out so people wont question whats really up. if you really start looking into it, its like every other lie, it starts with some truth. NASA is obviously bs'ing something big but its nothing we know of yet.

some of the flat earth stuff is easily debunked. some of it, not so much. somewhere in there theyve hidden the real picture.

either way, beware the coming deception.

I followed a few flat earther groups on fagbook for a while. It seems to be an attempt at roping normal, smart people into never-ending, pointless arguments about obviously stupid shit so as to waste their time and keep them from spending their limited, valuable time pursuing more important topics of interest. This is why I say, downvoat and ignore. The posters of this garbage want us to engage, or just get irritated. It's a psy-op intended to distract, simple as that.

Do not engage. Downvoat and ignore.

Satanic Panic was a cover. No one was panicking. People were researching and discovering some truly nasty shit. But they didn't want people asking why kids at McMartin preschool had chlamydia, so the had to make it seem like it was a hysteria.

The elite are occultists. Bottom line. You can say "They don't really believe it" if you want to assure yourself. The truth is, though, their occult practices (i.e. rituals, abuse, sacrifices) allow sociopaths to blackmail/extort, and therefore trust, one another.

It's pretty easily shut down.

"Even if you prove NASA lied, that doesn't prove the Earth is flat."

Of course it's easy to shut down, it's absolute bullshit, and they know it. It's not about whether or not they have an actual argument, they don't, it's about wasting people's time and keeping them distracted. Something which works a lot better on a place like Fagbook than here on Voat. I've been quite pleased to see Voat's immune system reject this garbage. However, what I learned from observing their tactics on Fagbook, is that any engagement with them legitimizes their strategy. Thus my suggestion that us goats respond simply by downvoating and ignoring.

I agree with this analysis and I've been trying to link to an old LessWrong comment

I want this site to focus its efforts positively rather than in amazing impressive refutations of bad ideas which is a primary failure mode of any intelligent Internet site. Threads with heavily downvoted ancestors should almost always not exist, because of their opportunity costs, the behaviors they reinforce, and other long-term consequences.

the technical term is "well-poisoning" its one of many tactics used by shills.

I think this started as Nerd sniping. It was motiveless malice.

Only later did shills notice that they can use the technique to destroy a forum by "well-poisoning".

It's some pathetic attempt at discrediting all voat users. The idea is to flood this place with tin-foil hat garbage, to try and make this place look like it's full of idiots. Possibly they are paid shills or bots.

All genuine voat users must be vigilant against 'controlled opposition'!

Worse than the Nazis and the pedos? This idiot is probably a shadowbanned refugee from reddit who became aware of Voat when it went offline a few weeks ago.

I said this in another thread but the photos he posts is due to lag on interlaced videos and the guy is just too stupid to figure out how video recording works.

It's even easily replicated on youtube videos if you force them to lag while watching a SD video. It actually happened to me the other day too.

Not that I'm aware of, but it's still more or less functional as far as tagging and forcing the column width goes. Ignore does fuckall with the new codebase, however.

Starting to wonder if @HorzaDeservedBetter is even alive, lol.

When someone's life is really boring and they find that to be a problem, they'll often make things up to try and make themselves sound interesting. This guy doesn't understand that even if this shit worked, being cool on the internet almost never translates into being cool in real life.

My mind is open to the flat earth theory, just as it's open to the holographic universe or multiverse theories. Remember that's all any of this stuff is just theory, the same as Gravity or that were spinning at 1000mph on a ball, with the water and people stuck to that ball by Gravity while hurtling through an infinite space at ridiculous speeds.

99% of Astronauts are freemasons that says it all for me. we been lied to and indoctrinated at such early ages most you guys couldn't see the fucking truth if it came up and bit you on the ass.

So stay asleep to the real world fuckers. While the masses are already awakening and becoming aware of the deceit and bullshit they been pumped with at school all their lives. Over the next few years you are going to witness an uprising of such magnitude that your present belief systems will be truly shaken to the core.... Stay tuned fuckers....

Nah. Not the same.

Theory to explain the un or little known or propose something is one thing.

Theory to unexplain whats already well understood, explained, observed, known, proven is just being a fucking retard.

I can absolutely seperate a genuine 'theory' that scientific minds come up with to explain their observations on whats going on around us (i dont think it means what you think it means but whatever) like multiverse or gravity, from sheer ignorance such as flat earth, chemtrails, vaccines causing autism. Overwhelming evidence and known fact contradict everything about those 'just a theory'-s which means they can be as theoretical as they want, its already thoroughly debunked.

Understood by what your teachers taught you? Your teachers have been sucked in too, they don't know the truth, only what they been indoctrinated with. Now those teachers are teaching our teachers of the future with all the wrong information.

One of your scientific minds, supposedly the best scientific mind of all times Steven Hawkins has just had his last work published, in it he describes how he thinks the universe is holographic.

You need to do some of your own research my friend, don't be frightened by what you might find. Yes you everyday comfortable world of what you think you know will be blown apart. But question everything the system has taught you, look into things with your own mind not your indoctrinated one. Search and you will find, do your own experiments if you can. The truth will set you free. https://youtu.be/QpXSQDVqzsA

Really??? Being open minded to the high chance that the our universe is holographic is fine with you though??? You do realise that if the universe is holographic it's being displayed from some flat 2d perspective????
