I noticed some folks in c/Conspiracies/p/15IXWXnIo6 arguing about the shape of the Earth. It doesn't look to be in bad faith, so I create this post for anyone interested.

Personally, looking at the Sun (ouch) and the Moon is enough for me.

I don't like to hurl shill accusations easily, I realize that's maliciously done to break trust within a community. However I did notice many comments getting upvotes within a minute of being posted. I don't care as long as I think there's a real person on the other side who's willing to discuss things somewhat openly. At least this thread contains this discussion here.

It’s a fake discussion.

The whole thing is obviously fake and gay.

People are not here suddenly vibrantly discussing flat earth in a positive sense.

That’s a complete shift in sentiment from the norm here.

Looks a lot like shill accounts pushing scripted conversation to make it appear those people are way more involved on this sub than they are.

It’s a way of discrediting a given forum, and if they’re lucky, they can scoop up some useful idiots along the way to perpetuate it further.

That’s the flat earth psyop. It is designed to make sure you know how stupid it is so you will never seriously evaluate or discuss it further.

The subject/discussion is extremely valuable which is precisely why they spend so much money advertising why it’s too stupid for you to bother with :(. Methinks the woman doth protest too much...

They targeted your post for a reason.

None of this is legitimate discussion.

I have to question you as well, since you’re the OP and posting about the same thing as these shills.

I think you’re sus too op. And if you’re not, then you’re genuinely a useful idiot for wanting people to even discuss something so incredibly idiotic and inherently intellectually discrediting.

My intention is to build trust within the community, and this subject is one of the most contentious. Users here hold open-mindedness in high regard, and discussing things is the only way out of it. This is why I suggest a live audio call, so we can hear each others voices, literally, and hopefully avoid the shill accusations. You're invited.

That’s sketchy af and exactly what a shill would want.

Audio recordings to go along with other meta data their compiling on the user base.

You are bad at your job.
