CHIPPIE THE RFID CHIP TOUR:
DISINFORMATION SATIRE or HOAX?
CHIPPIE THE FRAUDULENT RFID STORY
The following disclaimer was added to the website yesterday shortly after our original link went up.
Chippie the RFID Chip mascot begins nationwide tour to alleviate children’s fears of implantation – The picture of “Chippie” is worth clicking on this link.
[NOTE: There has been no success in trying to authenticate this story. No local news reports of the tour have been published that this writer can find. This is a subject about which it is easy to blend fiction with truth.
As a matter of record, we’ll leave this link up, along with this disclaimer. It may assist someone else who is looking for information on this subject.
The website where the story began is a hoax site.
To label the story a “hoax” or “satire” is giving the writer too much credit. One sign of both disinformation and poor satire is confusion for readers.
However, be aware: when disinfo, “satire” stories such as this are planted, usually this is a sign that the real thing will be along any time now. The “satire” stories are used to discredit any future warnings about the subject.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused during the 155 minutes this link was up without the disclaimer–Ed. 10-29-13 1035]
Continuing the search, there is no Chippie. There is no tour.
There is only a “troll” website.
While many webmasters and forum administrators consider trolls a scourge on their sites, some websites welcome them. For example, a New York Times article discussed troll activity at 4chan and at Encyclopedia Dramatica, which it described as “an online compendium of troll humor and troll lore”. This site and others are often used as a base to troll against sites that their members can not normally post on. These trolls feed off the reactions of their victims because “their agenda is to take delight in causing trouble”.
Wonder if Chippie will make it into Encyclopedia Dramatica? The ED website used to be a notorious hang-out for Internet trolls.
NOTE: ED was shut down in 2011. Except for a functioning mirror site.
