About Information War, 3/3

in #informationwar6 years ago (edited)

Our Purpose

The tag informationwar is for posts discussing Information War, Propaganda, and Disinformation. This covers the history and methods of infowar, where it fits as a method of war, what fakenews is and how to recognize it, and tools for fighting the war.

Tools include critical thinking, logic, and intelligence methods

This also deals with the current war that the Deep State is fighting against us, and how we can fight back

The ultimate purpose of InformationWar is to give you tools to defend liberty in this war

Curation Guidelines

Note- These are guidelines, not rules. Mods use their own discretion to curate.

  • Yes, curate your own related content. Try not to go more than 3 times a day, but I understand that events can cause waves of posts...

  • Don't worry about "draining" the account's Voting Power; if you are uncomfrtable with the current VP, make sure you ReSteem relevant posts

  • Tags to search for related material (feel free to add your own to the list)
    introduceyourself (looking for new Steemers who are interested in our concepts...@bashadow has already introduced a new Steemer to us, for example)

  • Video - Video submissions should be accompanied by a written summary of what the video is about and who is featured. Feel free to suggest this to video creators whose work you'd like to curate here

  • Try not to curate the same person too many times a day; use your own judgement ;>

  • When leaving our comment on curated posts, be as specific in the Relevance: section as possible as to WHY you curated the post

  • We can curate w/content we don't agree with if we feel the post fills the basics of our purpose

  • Don't engage in argumentation on this account; if dispute occurs, move to your own account and continue from there.

  • Don't engage in "backhand" curation...Relevance: this poster is an asshole...;> I'd suggest a counter-post on your own account and then curation from this account.

  • Avoid curating copypasta posts. Feel free to suggest to such submitters to add their own analysis. Perhaps refer them to this post, You can write for #informationwar....easily and on a format...kick that writer's block in the junk!

  • Every once in a while, read Our Purpose ;>

  • change our comment template to reflect

Mod "scheduling"

It doesn't matter if all 3 of us are curating at the same time; we each have different views as to what qualifies as worthy content, and we might pick up on posts that others miss.

We may confuse each other by resteeming something that another of us just resteemed, but we know the possibility and can look and see ;>

If we need to communicate, I'm fine with being transparent by commenting on our posts, but we can use Discord if you need some privacy.

What does the logo mean?

Symbols, from top to bottom

  • Rising Sun
    A) Illumination
    B) A New Day

  • Computer Monitor
    The battle is fought on an information/cyber battlefield

  • Daggers
    A) War
    B) Covert
    C) Specialized

Great post and thankyou for having created this great way of making various accounts here on Steemit one Spear @informationwar ! I Nice work chaps )) SteemOn4Truth !

looks like streemian upvoting is working, i just watched two upvotes happen recently. woo hoo!

also, I'm going to adjust our curation comment

it's the fanbase, I think...fanbase =folks UV the account, curation trail=folks UV what account UV

still kind of wonky, my setting is for 20% but I am UV @informationwar @ 100%. No biggie

Our Purpose

It seems I know about this post too slow. I will soon become a member here, looking forward to welcome from you.!

I like that @JeromeCorsi is on Steemit it seems and also @Cernovich and @Stefan.Molyneux and those might be might be my top 3 currently. Thanks, @InformationWar for this #InformationWar community.

We would need them to start using the Informationwar tag, which I don't think they ever have yet. If we could reach out to them to let them know it would really help.

Agreed and we will continue to tell them about it.

Looks like you guys have a good thing going here. Unfortunately my steempower is way to low at this time. Following and re-steeming is pretty much all I can do right now. Good Luck!

Not a problem!

I have a few posts you may want to
consider for the purposes of curation.
With the contest we'll fashion weapons
that will be used against those who censor.

FFF-SOS Has Infiltrated Steemit!
FFF-SOS 'Patient Zero' Petitions @randowhale
Create Memes Against Steemit Censorship! – $25.00 SBD in Prizes!

FFF-SOS is not a competing entity, I'm not asking for or looking for delegations. I'm just here to propose a decent Creed for Steemians to live by. Along with the notion that we must respond to censorship on this platform, if we are to preemptively save the platform.

The contest will be active until the 31st. Sponsor one of the prize winners and @informationwar will be listed as one or more of the sponsors. In three days I will not be able to edit the post.

Thank you for your consideration, I hope that informationwar will consider joining.

FFF-SOS (patient zero & fellow infowarrior)

Hi, this is @stevescoins

we have been discussing the possibility of dedicated flagging and our own "response" capability

The promise of the FFS-SOS looks like a welcome addition to Steemit

we are running a Discord channel to which you are invited if you'd like to discuss this with our IW community at large

or you can find me on Discord personally ;)

Thank you for the invitation @stevescoins

It sounds very interesting, I'll definitely check into it!

resteemed and upvoted unable to delegate (minnow). I am a truth seeker and info warrior myself and create content regularly. Made my way here because of extreme social media censorship on the big platforms. Steemit is my home now. Glad to see there are more of us awake and aware out here on this platform. God Bless
