A shill accidently posted some sensitive info from his shill manual during Boston Bombing cover up. Busted!
Do any of the respondents display the urge to supply information that could be helpful to your mission?
Do the respondents appear hostile to your attempts to steer the discussion?
Have you made a personal chart taking care to note who appear to be the “leaders” versus who appear to be the “followers”?
Have you attempted to gauge the “temperature” of the forum’s users?
In other words, the prevailing social psychology of the forum’s members?
Have you been more successful with one or the other XStart methods that were demonstrated in N-7015A.DOC?
Have more technical members (Computer Programmers, Administrators, or Moderators) of the forum deduced or accused you of hiding behind a proxy?
Would you gain more trust and/or credibility if you were to use one of the Agency’s allotted “HOME” pools? (most often needed when handling EVTS that are more sensitive to the pop. of a specific locale but also location centered web sites such as FB or Patch)
