Ron Paul Spam: Cui Bono?


Someone has been sending out spam messages with Ron Paul's name in the header and a link to Ron Paul YouTube videos. Fox News of course is blaming the campaign and accusing it of using a botnet. But that technique is, as this Wired post points out, a pretty good way to ensure that said video gets removed from YouTube–which has apparently happened. Further speculation on the Nolan Chart blog that the Paul campaign is being targeted by opponents to make it seem as if the campaign is spamming, but with the real goal of both getting people mad at the campaign and getting Ron Paul videos pulled from YouTube.
