  1. The “RON” spoke aggressively and belligerently about proposing to flatten the Bahamas, if a hypothetical , parallel Hamas-like situation presented itself. .The little bully was careful to not propose a similar thread to the equally poor neighbor 90 miles from Key West, that is Russia -backed. It’s easy to posture and bully as the “Power “in the face of an already flattened state..

  2. Hey Steve, may I make a suggestion to help you combat gaslighting and concern trolling in the TR comment sections? The next time things get a little slow around the office, please have someone on staff mine your WordPress database over the past two or three years, looking for comments posted from the same IP address but from different accounts. This isn’t a foolproof method, but I’m wagering that the actor behind several of the sock accounts appearing in the comment sections has not used a VPN exclusively (or even at all) during that period of time, and so there should be some interesting IP address matches between different commenters, especially when said actor posts from different accounts in a relatively short period of time.

    In light of the upcoming political season, new readers coming to TR won’t have the benefit of a history of reading these comments and learning to identify the sock accounts. A possible safeguard for this use case would be to display an irreversible one-way hash of the originating IP address next to each comment to help readers correlate such sock accounts (I’ve seen such a feature used in other CMSs, so I’m guessing it’s possible in WordPress, too). This could help in the VPN case, as well, because it would identify which accounts are consistently posting from behind a VPN; from there, such accounts can be further scrutinized for similarities in writing style, etc. to help new readers recognize when they are possibly being gaslit.

  3. It appears that For A Better Future was one of those classic “drive-bys.” He cruises past Tallahassee Reports, drops an unsubstantiated claim and you never see him again.

  4. @len green this outlet tends to harbor far-right opinions and it is just hilarious to watch the echo-chamber in full motion. I, however, am NOT a conservative, yet I read news from all outlets… including this one.

    This online community tends to be older folk who have no interest in finding common ground or providing those unlike them with humanity… just spitting out the same crap they have spewed since Reagan was president.

    From a 26 year old working class man to this audience.. get off the internet and talk to people who aren’t reading Tallahassee Reports.

    1. Can you please cite one or two far right opinions published on Tallahassee Reports? I am really interested in what you view as far-right. Thanks, Steve Stewart

  5. Tallahassee Reports is fearful of offending our autocratic governor, regarding the one sided and unbalanced content of comments regarding his primary.
