For a ground-floor view of the phenomena of QAnon ... including the gestation of 'Watkins-Q-kun':

  1. 1. Which choice best represents your interest in the QAnon phenomenon

    • I'd be interested in an objective analysis of the phenomena
    • I will explain everything in a guest post here, if given the opportunity

I'd like to open a field of discussion for the QAnon phenomena.  Here is where I will post in already existing material presented at OL by members.  I'll take direction from comments and from poll answers. 

  • What is Q / QAnon?
  • Why should anyone on OL pay attention?
  • Is skepticism justified?
  • What are the main questions readers have in mind to guide discussion?

No special rules or guidelines for this thread; the OL guidelines are good enough and will apply here. .  Please keep personal abuse to a minimum. Creative insults are kosher, but if they aren't on topic, why post them?


Our forum leader opened discussion on the phenomena back in January of this year.  My key-word search-term was "QAnon,"  not "Q," so the search results will not necessarily return all incidence of discussion touching on the phenomena.

[...] If you really want to go down a Rabbit Hole where anti-deep state magic happens for real, look into "QAnon."

I will post a thing about him later, probably in a new thread or on the Conspiracy Theory thread. He's been spot on accurate predicting a lot of recent happenings right before they happen. More recently he's been doing some twittering and he seems to like hamming it up a bit, so here are a few teasers:

More coming...

I used to hunt pheasant and quail in Nebraska. I talked business for hours with locals in their lunch counters in town. Hogs are big business. The installations are modern, industrial-scale. They are enormous facilities that generate enormous cash flow. It has been very competitive for decades. The people still at it are so because of their high business acumen. He is probably enormously intelligent and wealthy.

William does convey a sneer in his reference to "a pigfarmer" - as if he thinks that someone who raises pigs would be a dumb yokel.

Is there a greater honor than being told by a bigoted lying leftist that you are entirely caught up in a con?

Is there a more encouraging sign that you are over the target, poking a very sore spot?

The compilers of files at site dispense with the extra editorial finnicks found at



The site is probably more fun to faux 'researchers' -- as an anonymous crew piles on entailments. Eg, these are all the Soros-boogeyman 'themes' the crew has applied:


-- for those who use RSS feeds to sample the Q drops, offers translations in nine languages:

Why is George Soros in Ukraine?

It looks like the person or persons who post as Q has been watching TV and spending time on Twitter today. For a 'top secret' insider, he or she or they doesn't appear to have any insights not available via OSINT.

So back to Loser in mom’s basement watching tv? Which is fine, but why do you care about one fellow Loser? Years later, why are you still talking about him/her/them?

I wonder if this person/collective is on the job today. Do any of their co-workers observe this kind of thing being typed out ... ?

Think for yourself. Be the white zebra. The black zebras are evul.

Child trafficking, which you have laughed at right here at this forum, is evil. You are evil. Not colors, but nice try, scum.

Is it the things he said about Masons, Billy? Is that why you work so hard to discredit Q?

The post that stands out for me was when Q said it may not be a coincidence that Masons are so often on the scene at false flag mass shootings, explaining what they saw and what happened.

Are you a Mason, Billy? Is all this energy against Q from your blood oath to the brotherhood?

You went crazy at the time, calling me out for persecuting other groups, or some such weak, go-change-your-napkin, hysterical bullshit. It really seemed like Q hit a nerve that day.

We get closer and closer to the Great Awakening ... 

"Hi, my name is 'Q' -- I have a Top Sekrit Classification, which allows me access to terrific insider information like, um, Fox News tweets. I love my job."

Trump is retweeting Q accounts and promoting one that dares evade Twitter’s rules?

Don’t worry, Precious, the DemocRats can impeach him for that.

Now Zuck obeys his mademan elite Commie Chinese wife to censor and go after a persecuted people, in America.

The usual scumbags approve.

Fake Social Media?


Removing Coordinated Inauthentic Behavior From Georgia, Vietnam and the US
December 20, 2019
By Nathaniel Gleicher, Head of Security Policy


We also removed 610 accounts, 89 Facebook Pages, 156 Groups and 72 Instagram accounts that originated in Vietnam and the US and focused primarily on the US and and some on Vietnam, Spanish and Chinese-speaking audiences globally. This activity primarily focused on The BL, a US-based media company, and its Pages, which were operated by individuals in the US and Vietnam. The people behind this activity made widespread use of fake accounts — many of which had been automatically removed by our systems — to manage Pages and Groups, automate posting at very high frequencies and direct traffic to off-platform sites. Some of these accounts used profile photos generated by artificial intelligence and masqueraded as Americans to join Groups and post the BL content. To evade our enforcement, they used a combination of fake and authentic accounts of local individuals in the US to manage Pages and Groups. The Page admins and account owners typically posted memes and other content about US political news and issues including impeachment, conservative ideology, political candidates, elections, trade, family values and freedom of religion.

Although the people behind this network attempted to conceal their identities and coordination, our investigation linked this activity to Epoch Media Group, a US-based media organization, and individuals in Vietnam working on its behalf. The BL-focused network repeatedly violated a number of our policies, including our policies against coordinated inauthentic behavior, spam and misrepresentation, to name just a few. The BL is now banned from Facebook. We are continuing to investigate all linked networks, and will take action as appropriate if we determine they are engaged in deceptive behavior.

Presence on Facebook and Instagram: 610 Facebook accounts, 89 Pages, 156 Groups and 72 accounts on Instagram.
Followers: About 55 million accounts followed one or more of these Pages (the vast majority of which were outside of the US), about 381,500 accounts joined at least one of these Groups and around 92,000 people followed one or more of these Instagram accounts.
Advertising: Less than $9.5M in spending for ads on Facebook and Instagram paid for primarily in US dollars, and some in Korean won, Vietnamese dong, Indonesian rupiah, Australian dollars, the New Taiwan dollars and Canadian dollars. That includes the entirety of advertising activity by both inauthentic and authentic accounts removed as part of this network engaged in coordinated inauthentic behavior.
We identified this activity through our internal investigation into suspected coordinated inauthentic behavior. Our assessment benefited from open source reporting.
