Misspellings foil FOIA

So if this is true and not saying it is but what do you think about it?

I like the idea that since everything we says is somewhere on the net that when they do a search they can't use your own words to cancel you out. It's funny the smart spellers with perfect grammar and punctuation are the easiest one to cancel out. All that education on perfect communication yet in the computer age it puts you easy to find in a data base.

The ones easiest to follow are those who make perfect tracks...

Looks like a Stygian Conspiracy to me.




Good find, Jim.

Quite plausible.

It's all about data and how it's tracked, how can a search engine find mispelled words? If they can hide with it then so can the rest of us. Why do you think they came up with spell checkers, it ain't to make us smarter?

it is not the technology, it is the malice in the intent of the user that matters, what makes the distinction.

democrats using counterintel agency resources --specifically illegal spying on americans-- to influence elections, and to cancel results of elections they lose: thats not about technology, it is about illegal criminal activity.

Yes as a political tool I can see how they use it. I can also see how it's a defensive tool to keep from being canceled. Being aware that all talk on the net is data that can be searched means mispelled words throw the search off. Google won't find it if the spelling doesn't match the topic so if you mispelled every topic from now on then they won't find the discussion under a topic search.

They will be able to follow folks but they won't have the time.

Heck even different character encodings could make it visually the same but different as far as a computer is concerned.

used to troll EBAY and other auction sites deliberately searching under misspelled words and bogus terms bargain hunting making just huge buys

Gunjoker is now worthless for this since they broadened their search engine
not even worth my time to filter through all the bogus results generated

for example enter in "rolling block" they load you up will listings for roll pins, whatever
