I mean, I knew /r/TheDonald was painted bright red, I guess there was just too much drool all over the floor for me to see the hammer and sickle.

I feel a poem coming on...
upload.wikimedia.org

If the internet wasn't mostly fake

it would be as boring as a wake

.

there's nothing better to catch your eyes

than some frantic and obvious lies

.

But for every person that rejects it calmly

There are three who forward it to their extended family

.

"Is anything real?", We wonder aloud

This brave new world would make Sartre proud...

Senator Dot.


No, she's already Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana Fanna Bo Besca III, so I don't think she's allowed to be a Senator.

the content and conversations are neatly organized

Reddit is a lot of things, but from what I've seen "neatly organized" is not one of them.

I'm pretty sure we're too psychotic and downright vicious for Russian propaganda to take hold here.

I know their trolls and bots were active during the election, but I don't think many left alive.

Yeah it's a lot easier to follow conversations on reddit. This format is better at quickly checking out a thread to see if there's any funny pictures/.gifs.

Not every deliberate campaign to distribute false news has Russians behind it.

We are perfectly capable of undermining our own democracy.

We know. That leads to endless Benghazi hearings. But it takes Russian interference to really Fark our democracy up so bad that we wind up with a Tangerine tyrant and Nazis storming Thomas Jefferson's alma mater.

Naturally, there's a thread on Reddit about this. It goes like:

-Some poor bastard has to read all the posts on r/Politics and r/The_Donald
-"Remember in the months before the DNC when r/Politics was nothing but nutty conspiracy posts?"
    -"IT WAS ALSO FULL OF PAID SHILLS FOR CLINTON'S CORRECT THE RECORD!"
-This is a circlejerk about how much of a circlejerk Reddit is. This is the most meta thread ever.

Is Drew upset that the Russians didn't buy any adspace on Fark?

Is that why we're getting all these articles? That they felt Facebook, Twitter and Reddit were worthy of infiltration and sockpuppetting, but not Fark? Does he feel slighted that the Russians didn't think Fark was important enough?

The Hillbot's paid $hills were all over Fark's politic tab for months so I'm sure Drew got paid either via direct ad dollars or indirectly via views.

By organizing it by popularity it is.  The layout is still garbage.

This morning Fark  side banner was full of Sputnik links. Oilprice ,RT, and a few others have been around since  very early in election cycle, or even before.. They show "superior "military hardware, so I assume they're in a pretty bad state of readiness.
 Then I think Putin can think 8 steps ahead of me so...???

According to Top Farkers, anyone who didn't vote for Hillary Clinton hard enough was clearly a paid russian infiltrator.

I'm pretty sure no one got paid for expressing any opinion on Fark.

This site leans left because the demographics are intelligent, thoughtful and educated.

That's what I love about politicians - hey are always decades behind the rest of society.  It comes from them being mostly lawyers.  In school, they learn how to have attitude rather than real understanding of reality.

0.001% of all lawyers actually come marginally close to knowing technology exists.  The rest dance around with bones through their noses imagining all forms of witchcraft.  The ones that think they know about tech are the worst.
