Censorship and disinformation pervade bahai cyberspace

Wikipedia Entry > Baha'i Censorship of FG Page, May 2010

Haifan Baha'i fundamentalists are highly adept at manipulating and controlling information, disinformation and public perception, on and off the Internet, at times using false identities (permissible under taqiyya and hikmat "dissimulation" and "wisdom" to "protect the faith") and smearing dissenters as "paranoid," "disillusioned," given to "conspiracy theories," "covenant breakers," and so forth.

I caution you that appearances are deceiving on Wikipedia, talk.religion.bahai and alt.religion.bahai, as elsewhere in bahai cyberspace, Beliefnet, Talisman9, "unenrolled" Baha'i Yahoo Group, at times the DMOZ and Google directories, and
so on, playing the game of "good cop, bad cop,"*** (see below) all of which have been prime tactics and arenas of Baha'i propaganda and used to identify, manage, and suppress dissent.

Time has shown that some false identities are actually *double agents* pretending to be opposed to the Haifan Baha'i denomination while actually working on its behalf, especially on talk.religion.bahai. Compare "agents provocateurs" on Wikipedia: " The provocateurs try to incite the opponent to counter-productive or ineffective acts to foster public disdain—or provide a pretext for aggression against the opponent." Compare "red-baiting": "such unjust accusations of crypto-communism are used mainly with the intention of discrediting the individual's or organization's political views."

For a historical perspective, "The Baha'i Technique":

Good Cop/Bad Cop
, known in British military circles as Mutt and Jeff and also called joint questioning and friend and foe[1], is a psychological tactic, used for interrogation. It involves a team of two interrogators who take apparently opposing approaches to the subject. The interrogators may interview the subject alternately or may confront the subject at the same time.The 'Bad Cop' takes an aggressive, negative stance towards the subject, making blatant accusations, derogatory comments, threats, and in general creating antipathy between the subject and himself. This sets the stage for the 'Good Cop' to act sympathetically: appearing supportive, understanding, in general showing sympathy for the subject. The good cop will also defend the subject from the bad cop. The subject may feel he can cooperate with the good cop out of trust and/or fear of the bad cop. He may then seek protection by and trust the good cop and tell him the needed information.The technique is easily recognised by those familiar with it, but it remains useful[citation needed] against subjects who are young, frightened, or na´ve. Experienced interrogators assess the subject's level of intelligence and experience with the technique[citation needed] prior to its application, as the technique is often seen as offensive and insulting to those who recognise it, who may thus refuse to cooperate outright.
