    The secretive British spy agency GCHQ has developed covert tools to seed the internet with false information, including the ability to manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, “amplif[y]” sanctioned messages on YouTube, and censor video content judged to be “extremist.” The capabilities, detailed in documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, even include an old standby for pre-adolescent prank callers everywhere: A way to connect two unsuspecting phone users together in a call.

      It isn't as bad as the media make it out to be. There is a real sense of community.

      Lol. I think some mods here are kinda like Men in Black. They can apparently make us & our accounts disappear.

      Lol. Why don't you go ask God or NSA? They're all omniscient, aren't they?
