A silver lining to the cloud of paranoia

It's census time, and as we all know, there are people who do not send their census forms back (examples). With paranoia among some segments of the right at an all-time high, noncompliance by such groups could spike higher than ever -- perhaps enough to cost the red states a few House seats and electoral votes. Which would mean more for the blue states. Just a thought.

Yay! Let's do some fearmongering on the theme:

If you fill out the census form and send it back, the Obama goons will take away your guns and garden hoses. (Yup, for real!)

If you fill out the census form and send it back, your skin will break out in a rash shaped like hammers and sickles.

If you fill out the census form and send it back, you'll be forced to stop eating meat. (By the Obama goons, of course.)

If you fill out the census form,
the Southern states will secede from the Union...

Oh, wait... Never mind.

And the famous question about how many toilets you have is so that Comrade Obama can nationalize them all for the People's Poo Palaces of the future.....

Social engineering is the lazy virus-writer's approach to getting people to spread misinformation (or even to get people to hurt their own computers) -- it's the practice that has littered our inboxes with non-existent missing children, dire warnings about harmless things, and of course, reich wing propaganda. Sure, you could write a bot that would do the same thing, but if you can just get a few morons to click "forward", it saves all that bothersome coding.

I have studied this in detail and feel I have excellent qualifications to craft a new batch of lies email campaign. I just need some backwards hillbillies to start the process, but I don't know any personally.

Feel free to contribute a few email addys, I'll handle the distasteful task of sinking to the opposition's level.

I'm serious. If anyone knows anyone afflicted with the "gullibility virus" (google that for more info), I'll happily set up an anonymous email account and go to town.

I have never used my powers for evil, not even to do good with evil methods. But lately, all I can say is, it's on. No more Ms. Nice Geek.

Well, there you have it, everyone -- get in touch with Ms. Lizard and get the ball rolling! I hardly think the opposition would hesitate, if given an analogous opportunity.
