So this is not something I've seen in KiA2 much, but that's probably because the core user base here is very peculiar about misinformation tricks (thanks to shithead journalists who have made us keenly aware of such tactics).
But in other communities, such as patriots.win, I've noticed that a lot of the posts there often seem to be missing key information about the context or time of a claim.
Key examples just from the past 24 hours:
https://patriots.win/p/13zMZPlaC0/ashli-babbitts-mother-responds-t/ < Just plain text, no link, no source?
https://patriots.win/p/13zMZMMOph/nothing-was-normal-before-covid-/c/ < Sketchy ass looking twitter screenshot?
https://patriots.win/p/13zMZOeHw9/oregon-ranchers-larry--amanda-an/c/ < Blurry as fuck picture? And why wouldn't the poster state this was from 2016?
- Karma farming for points?
- Karma farming in order to sell your account? I know this happens on reddit, but that's largely because of the site rank and how it's a place to astroturf certain ideas. I can't imagine this is even a thing on patriots.win.
- Leftists posting outrage bait in order to cause disinformation?
- General stupidity?
- Bot farm content? (I've long suspected that 90% of "user engagement" and content on patriots.win is actually bot farms)
I don't particularly care about the content of these posts, but something about the way they are done just seems very fishy.
