I am a supporter and don't want to give the impression that I'm trying to hide that in anyway. Otherwise I think the updates are fine.I'm a little shady on the WAM tool, it seems it's not only being abused, but it's also being used to collect data on "offenders". The problem being what some people consider harassment is really broad. I don't like the idea of a radical political organization (of any kind) collecting data on me, especially if the intention is to use it to label me has a harasser for just disagreeing politely with someone.

Any idea how this tool collects the data? Re: Editor note!

I read it in a different article a few days ago. I'll see if I can track it down and get back to you. Re: Editor note! (Score: 1) by email@example.com on 2014-11-12 20:30 (#2V0V) This would be great. I once thought of writing a tool, which spiders a forum and does statistical analysis on texts. My idea was that this could help to detect double accounts and sock puppets. But... this is a bit beyond my usual work and this for me tremendous effort would be by far not rewarding enough, so I dropped this idea. Re: Editor note!
