rconner Posted January 12, 2008 Share Posted January 12, 2008 Submitted without political comment is this story on arstechnica. Apparently a U.S.-based botherder decided to use his machinery to do a bit of political promotion that was (so says Paul's campaign) not solicited by Paul any more so than by the estimated "millions" of people who received it. An earlier arstechnica story on this incident goes a bit farther out on the limb: But online, the libertarian candidate seems to have an almost cult-like following. But how much of that is real? Much of Ron Paul's online support may be at least partially manufactured by overenthusiastic supporters, as some researchers say that spammers have recently stepped up their efforts to gain support for their favorite candidate.Hmm... -- rick Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
