Government and/or corporate paid informants infiltrate sites by laying low for awhile to fit in, and then start infusing their disinfo, agenda driven comments. He recalls what a Redwoods destroying lobbyist once told him, and then says:

“Lobbyists who target ordinary people are not required to identify themselves as such, either in the real world or online. And it is a huge, huge part of the public relations business! Remember, in these evil times, whatever dirty trick or subterfuge the government can think of they’re going to do. They don’t have a reason not to. Lying gets them what they want. That’s why we have to keep standing up and pointing out the liars: ‘you’re a liar, you’re a liar, pants on fire.’ ‘Fifteen Pinochios on you.’”
