Skip to comments.A playbook for combating QAnon

QAnon can no longer be ignored. What internet companies could do to stop its spread.
Just describing QAnon a sprawling, false theory that there is a deep state of child-molesting Satanists in charge of powerful institutions makes me confused.
But we cant ignore QAnon, even if we find the conspiracy bizarre. QAnon supporters are co-opting advocacy efforts in areas such as anti-child sex trafficking, believers are poised to get elected to office and followers are committing violence. Elements of QAnon are popping up everywhere.
I dont think anyone realized how big it would become, said Zarine Kharazian, assistant editor at the Atlantic Councils Digital Forensic Research Lab, which studies online misinformation. ...
I asked Kharazian what the internet companies should do to more effectively combat this conspiracy. ....
Stop recommending this content
Take down conspiracy influencers.
Block links. The companies need to aggressively block links in social media posts to QAnon-related websites
Rethink trending content.

Time for the government to start arresting and imprisoning without bail, the vermin behind this, for Civil Rights violations.
...Like the NYT...
No wonder NYT wants to snuff it out.
Some people must be getting very nervous.
There is NO NEED to combat the Q-Anon phenomenon. It can be put to rest by somebody-anybody with a microphone- asking President Trump the question.
That nobody is willing to ask the question is very telling.
No need to close MSM TV....nobody watches....
Q must be over the target. You go Q!
Wow! The NYT really has its finger on the pulse of political discourse. They’ve done discovered Qanon! Now, anyone who has ever agreed with anything Qanon has put forward in any way or degree, is a “conspiracy theorist.” Haven’t heard of Qanon, but happened to reach a similar conclusion on some issue? You are a conspiracy theorist. Welcome. We have cookies and coffee (made with unfloridated water, of course).
First they came for the Qs....
You know you are really over the target when they start shooting at you so much. Theyve pulled out all the stops on Q, especially after President Trump emphasized the Q in General Charles Q. Browns middle initial so strongly the other day at his swearing in ceremony. He mentioned that Q several times for no discernible reason.
“It can be put to rest by somebody-anybody with a microphone- asking President Trump the question.”
Instead they advocate all tech companies to invest huge energy in enforcing new policies. Jeez! Just ask the President the question and if he says it’s not real it’ll be the end of it!
Sounds like restraint of trade to me. And conspiracy to commit.
SEC do your thing.
Okay, if it was just a LARP and a bunch of nutcases conspiracy theorists talking nonsense, why are they so worried over it and want it shut down at all costs?...................
“Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!”
The NYT knows what’s coming and is trying to get ahead of it. Won’t work.
“Just describing QAnon a sprawling, false theory that there is a deep state of child-molesting Satanists in charge of powerful institutions makes me confused.”
They have, unwittingly, just introduced a million or so new readers to the “Q” phenomena..............
The Ministry of Propaganda hates competition.
I have tried reading a number of QAnon posts over the last few years, but it’s like listening to a YouTube religious prophet forecasting the future or blathering about their visions... boring as hell.
Because after all, there is no sex trafficking or abuse, just look at the guy who killed himself in jail when the cameras and guards were off and who didn’t visit his pedo island.
I don’t get it. There’s been a lot of heat lately on Q.
I still take a look at the Q threads here at FR. All I see is a bunch of old ladies gossiping, chit chatting and pretending like they know something.
Even worse - the head Qtard (who will be along here shortly) is FR’s biggest troll. (He got zotted for a week recently. Why did they let him back?)
Anyway, Q must have a hell of a PR firm. Generating up kooky conspiracy theories that even The NY Slimes believes.
Trust Sessions, y’all!
The ACLU is suspiciously silent.
