    Is this Forum the Target of a Sub Rosa Operation?

    Did you ever notice new threads that have the following in common:

    1. Started by a very new member
    2. Who is often young and/or inexperienced but has admirable/lofty life goals.
    3. Asks about a contentious subject
    4. With an easily found answer
    5. That the he thinks is unfair or doesn't apply to him/his circumstances
    6. Or that he will address by foolish, if not unlawful behavior
    7. And after receiving several consistent replies, he repeats or restates the same question in a different manner
    8. After a few days to a week, he disappears and is never seen again (under that name)

    Is it far fetched to think that individuals or groups with goals at odds with opencarry.org would engage
    in such behavior, perhaps hoping to provoke an outrageous or emotional reaction?

    Pretty common all over the interwebs when kids are out of school for the summer.

    No forum is safe from trolling.

    LOL Paid by who and with what money? Loosen your chin strap, there's no wind in your mom's basement to blow your tinfoil helmet off.
