Karzai rumor campaign 311.
A new web trolling
campaign to spread the rumor that Afghan President Hamid Karzai has
converted to Christianity was sweeping the internet on Thursday, calling
on people to "exploit Islam's hatred of all things Christian." Web trolling involves posting inflammatory statements online to provoke reactions.Running
with the title "Operation: Desert Troll," the call to action urged
readers to use tools such as blogs, twitter, reddit to spread the
message. Internet users were also asked to search the term "Hamid Karzai
converts to Christianity" to further circulate the rumor.
