    So as many of you know, there are a lot of people on here, and we all have ways of getting information to people through the internet. Although our methods may vary, its basically the same thing.


    I thought of this little experiment and it would be cool if we carried it out.

    It goes as follows:

    Basically we come up with a believeable but still outrageous lie, weather it be that a celebrity died, or that bananas are going extinct, something.

    We then through our various ways of getting info to people on the internet, all go out at once and spread this lie like wildfire.

    thousands of digg posts, post it on all your blogs, post craigslist ads etc.

    Once we have people believing the lie, besides the satisfaction of knowing that we have complete control over the internet ;), some people can even monetize on it.

    If we plant a seed of fear in people, setup codebreakers with info about whats happening , and we could dominate the first pages of google before we even release the lie.

    Let me know what you think :) , feel free to add your own twists

    I have made $$$$ off "lies" like the ones you are talking about with codebreaker sites, but I am not sure it spreads as quickly as you would think.

    Let me just say there is a lot of cash to be made off non-existent content, especially when it comes to celebrities, but I wouldn't expect your rumors to go viral besides a couple blog posts and yahoo answer questions.

    Think about it.

    We have yahoo answers autoposters

    social bookmarking posters

    craigslist ads

    mass diggs ( if everyone diggs a certain post )

    Posts on high traffic blogs if the content is relevant.

    This wouldnt happen unless we actually came together and did it all at the same time. We have the ability to do it easily, weather or not we will do it is another question entirely lol.

    Sure, this could work. But it would have to be a HIGHLY coordinated effort. Ever heard of market manipulation? I would think this could be a regular way for us to improve our 'bottom' lines...

    I think it's too hard to start a rumor, all those efforts would be more effectively put into promoting codebreaker sites right away instead of hoping the rumor caught on.

    Around 100k people went to my main celebrity codebreaker site last month and even more people saw my spam(not email spam) for it and only some small sites blogged about it and I only got like 10 yahoo answers with people asking about it. So you really need a much bigger reach to start a rumors imo..

    No, it would be something like a coming shortage on "widgets" ... a new virus ... a new government immigration requirement (think outside the box), come on, a co-worker of mine and I invented a coversheet rumor at our old corporation. It went all the way up the chain...we just mentioned it in a few meetings as a joke... it was right after we saw "Office Space". Everyone was looking for the new TPS coversheets...HA!

    You guys have to stop putting down an idea that has huge potential.

    Has anyone every heard of **********? That site can literally run the internet if they wanted to. They do coordinated "attacks" just about daily some succeed while others fail. It is all part of the game.

    If this started to get some progress send me a PM and I will be in on this idea.

    edit: I got ** but the site I mentioned begins with the number 4

    Not really, we photoshop a penis onto Rosie O'Donnell.
    Spam digg with headlines like "O'Donnell O'Penis! Does she really have a wang?"

    I'm sure everyone will agree with this one.

    We can get funding from Donald Trump to start this.

    I actually like the potential that this idea has. I mean you see those gossip magazines at your local convenience store, they often fabricate and drastically exaggerate their headlines in order to create curiosity and then a sale.

    If we set up some domains, get our SEO on lock down and rank before we spread the rumor we could be set to make some pretty nice cash. The actual implementation is harder but I really like the idea.
