  •  You said you "I don't do that" (11+ / 0-)

    I linked to a place where you did.  That's called facts.

    However, there are those who do know full well what they're doing.  Their main motivation is to disrupt, confuse, and derail any discussion on themes that question the ruling class narrative or worldview.

    In that category, there could be opportunists, profiteers, or people who greatly benefit from maintaining the status quo.

    Finally, I think there is enough evidence to conclude that that are indeed agents tasked with creating havoc and confusion in discussion threads related to articles or blogs that could be seen as threatening to the (corrupt) power structure.

    Profiteers without profit, and agents who work for no pay for no agency?  Hmmm.

    •  Well Empty Vessel, fwiw (2+ / 0-)

      I believe the diary referenced was posted prior to the current iteration of the DK rules. But I haven't checked timestamps.

      In this particular case, Ray's claim that "I don't do that" could be interpreted as a statement of present fact, avoiding reference to past actions.

      In general, I have to give Ray full points for being very good at staying just inside the established boundaries.

      I also have to acknowledge that a good number of critical comments posted in Ray's diaries attack perceived claims made by Ray, which are actually very well-crafted suggestions, not explicit claims.
