    I could post this question in any one of hundreds (thousands?) of similar posts by you so I just picked the latest one. Are you actively scanning for this kind of information most of the day or do you have a service that is providing these articles, websites, etc. to you? It is a genuine question; obviously you provide about 80% of the discussion topics here and I am just wondering how they come to your attention.

    There are two answers. The first is that I'm a bit of a news junkie and I have several news aggregators on my phone and laptop. Apps like smartnews, newspeak, etc. I also have a semi-structured service that delivers articles to me on specific topics using a set of keywords that are probably fairly predictable to most of you. I have been doing it long enough so that I can deliver the articles to you by spending really very little time doing it. I have been mildly embarrassed a couple of times because I posted an article not really knowing it's content because sometimes I really just scan the story briefly before pushing it forward.

    For what it's worth, I may not often comment on the posts, but I get value out of Kizmet's news aggregation service.

    I suspect that you're primarily interested in the Conspiracy Theory thread :rolleyes:
