One of the most frustrating things about this forum is that people post shit from sources that are obviously not verifiable or reputable. All that does is discredit the real investigation. I've seen a bunch of posts here and elsewhere from this Neon Nettle place. It's scary how easily people fall for it.

Confirmation bias is rampant. I think there are a lot of young people in this site that just don't know any better yet

This forum went to shit after the elections.

These people are seeing fucking triangles in the clouds and claiming the clouds are connected to pedogate.

It's just retarded at this point.

The problem seems like it could be a culmination of confirmation bias, as you said, as well as a flaw in the current content aggregation model. Website like this one not only allow users to vote on content based solely on the title or thumbnail alone, but the design essentially encourages it. I'm sure you're right about the naive younger population, but I think it's because some individuals views this similarly to something like Twitter. Voater fraud is also also much more than likely to be a cause of some of the poor content finding itself on the front page.

I wrote a comment on a NN FB post: "Neon Nettle you're pissing me off with so much BS". Next thing I get a 'contact request' from a Jay Neon. Needless to say it was denied.

Jay Greenberg from neon nettle is a kike shill look him up. He's part of other big disinformation campaigns. My guess is this, these people are testing the waters. They are trying to see how long it takes for info to be disseminated, this news to trickle down to facebook from more underground websites like this. They are trying to balkanize the internet. It started with pizzagate getting deleted from Reddit, they wan't us stuck in echochambers... What about GAB? That was another honeypot used to suppress conservative opinions

Anybody know how to do the site owner check? Be interesting to see who's behind this. It's a very odd site.

I like creating hype…it’s something I've always been good at, and because my name is Steve McQueen it’s hard for people to forget me.

When they published a supposedly 'True story" about Brad Pitt exposing Hollywood pedos I knew it was fake!! Brad is not allowed to speak out, he is part of it

PSA: Neon Nettle is actual fake news.

Of course they are.. they steal articles right out of other sites, even mainstream "fake news" sources without giving them credit.. but when i pointed this out, some moronic sheep attacked me..
