FEDS SPEND $500k FOR “EXTENSIVE TRACKING INFRASTRUCTURE” TO “COMBAT ONLINE TROLLING”

Quote:
The National Science Foundation has issued two quarter-of-a-million-dollar grants for “Leveraging Personalized Internet Services to Combat Online Trolling”.

The grant defines online trolling as, “scenarios in which various groups deploy tactics to influence public opinion on the Internet, by leaving biased, false, misleading, and inauthentic comments, and then artificially amplifying their ratings,” so you can immediately see where that’s a slippery slope to shutting down free speech and dissent because who decides what is “false, misleading, and inauthentic” online?
The government’s researchers?

Creepier, the grant admits that we are increasingly tracked as our privacy is increasingly going extinct on the internet, and it is this built-in “extensive tracking infrastructure” that will be tapped to combat trolling online:
Users have often expressed concern about the lack of privacy and control over their personal data. Nonetheless, despite a substantial effort to expose and control this prevalent behavior, the reality is that users keep accepting updated online privacy policies, which in turn grant the gathering of more personal data. This project explores re-using this extensive tracking infrastructure for the benefits of both the users themselves and web services, with a goal of preventing online trolling…

The goal is reportedly to create a “personalization-based counter-trolling system as open-source software”

Kind of ironic when you think about how much money Hillary has spent amassing her very own online troll army… Then again, the “combat” here will be reserved for dissenters George Orwell style, as per the usual.

Combat online trolling. Ban hate speech. Ban people who disagree with you. Ban dissent. All of those things are supported by liberals one way or another. I use to think Christians and their book banns and Sunday laws were bad. Its not even in the same ball park of the crap the liberal menace wants. Just another plank in the road to

On line trolling might have a different meaning to the National Science Foundation. It could have something to do with scientists stealing data from other scientists or prevent other scientists from skewing the data.

I am sure that the National Science Foundation could give a shit less about Trolls. Troll fishing uses a very large net and catches everything swimming but troll fishermen have to put a sea turtle escape in the troll net that lets sea turtles out but keeps fish in. The National Science Foundation is casting a wide net without sea turtle escape. The National Science Foundation is after someone and hope it is not me. : )

Can you rephrase this analogy or whatever you are trying to do so that it, you know, makes sense?

Is this why we have seen so little of GhostRider, and Camelot, the past few days?

Sry, I can't rephrase it without lowering myself to vulgar asinine remarks. That I can do at the drop of a hat.

The mass media doesn't want any competition that may expose their lies, omissions and half-truths.
