We have an overabundance of seeders here on Newsvine who think it's sport to seed deliberately misleading articles, or articles that they know have no basis in truth. Why ? The reasons are simple. 1. Pathological need for attention. 2. Many are attempting to bait others into doing something that will result in them being banned and they do it to strike a blow for Conservatism against the hate liberal scourge because they really don't know any better. 3. Some are actually showing up as paid contributors elsewhere. 4. They are just to dumb to realize that they are just modified trolls. When is it going to stop ? When will Newsvine raise the quality and put an end to the grenade seeding ?
I emailed the moderators, ( no response as of yet ) and requested a policy that after X amount of deliberately misleading articles that sanctions take place. It's getting tiresome and again, for those of us who love the Vine, it's as if the Foxbots are deliberately trying to bring down the quality of the Vine. Some answer their own questions, some argue when their questions are answered, and some insult and insult, but do nothing to defend the "trolliness " of their seed. It's your fault that they are being deliberately misleading, because if you open your mind, you too can see the insanity the way they see it ( usually it would take a hell of a lot of LSD ).
It is getting ridiculous enough as to where one such "seeder" posted an article then refuted their own article after being proven to be doing nothing but baiting.
I think we should all contact the moderators and tell them enough is enough, and that we would like to see as much action on those who continuously post misleading articles as there is on those who violate the COH, because it is a violation.
Of course we'll hear the same whiny accusations, " Why do you hate free speech ", or " You're such an authoritarian " ( 90% of those who use the term don't know what it actually means ), but any dodge to hide the fact that they seem to have some deep seated personal issues that need addressing in a professional setting.
Enough is enough. The Vine is getting destroyed by the paid posters who only seek to do harm or have others banned.
