Just a few years ago, Greg, Phil Dragoo and I went to great lengths to expose a regular poster on another forum -- one which I co-founded -- as an agent provocateur under whose name multiple individuals were spreading disruptive nonsense.
For our efforts we were ridiculed. "He's just some poor wanker," wrote one of that forum's co-founders -- the same individual who argued that since all of the "wanker's" posts were coming from the same Florida IP address, "he" simply had to be the one and only person writing "his" posts.
Ultimately I was libeled on and banned from that forum. Another co-founder, a man of honor and accomplishment and a world-class analyst and researcher of deep political phenomena, left in disgust.
Now on that forum we see that the "wanker" is being called a "troll" by a mod and indeed has been put on moderation. Earlier, one of the writers posting under the "wanker's" name was published there.
In some parts of the British empire, the sun never rises.
Deep politics come with deep agendas.
