Overview of the pseudo #WikiLeaks Forum creation and operation 2010 to March 2014

Posted by

WikiLeaks is a publishing organisation shining truth to the murky corners of powerful governments and private corporations. Wikileaks-forum.com website has nothing to do with the heroic organisation whose name it brandishes. It is time for this perceived association to come to an end. It is time for their name and logos not be used and abused by Mark Goeder-Tarant (MGT) or whoever owns and controls the forum and the social media platforms controlled by him. WikiLeaks its supporters and the general public deserve protection from attacks at social media by an entity disguised with the ‘WikiLeaks brand’ as friendly when in fact, it is aggressively reactionary to support work, actively subverting it, smearing the organisation and acting fraudulently.

The creation of the Forum:

Mark Pickett or Goeder, or Goeder-Tarant (MGT) and Sigurdur Thordarson (ST)(Sigurður Ingi Þórðarson) alias Q alias Siggi alias PenguinX, set up The WikiLeaks-Forum.com together in February 2011. It is a self professed fact that Siggi became a paid FBI informant. The collaboration had started earlier during 2010 with ST giving MGT access to WikiLeaks Social Media platforms that he was involved in as a volunteer. Most prominently ST made MGT moderator at the WikiLeaks Facebook Page Discussion Forum. This was consequently closed down causing much consternation among participants, to give way to a dedicated website, wikileaks-forum.com, for discussing and supporting WL on line, owned by MGT.

Their early co-operation in the creation of the forum website, led to a Twitter account, and numerous Facebook pages springing up clothed in WikiLeaks regalia: name, logos, content and a blog: Support-Julian-Assange.com. They invited people to join on 02/03/2011. Hundreds of members of the public became members of the forum and, over a time, a few dozen volunteered to act as mods/admins assisting in running it.  Whether they came from Facebook, Twitter, from Support-Julian-Assange blog or a google search, everyone believed it to be a genuinely supportive site. It was listed as such by WikiLeaks.org website, in their supporters section. Reality was very different. A few months after the forum was set up, it became evident that Sigurdur Thordarson was not a trusted volunteer and he “left” the forum September/October 2011.

Mark going solo:

It was in September 2011 that MGT was to advertise the sale of the forum to the highest bidder for the first time. In private talks, he expressed that the forum was taking a toll on his personal life, he wished to sell it to an appropriate buyer or the press, a figure of half a million pounds was mentioned, and he could then retire and look after his family. Several other WikiLeaks supporters’ Platforms populated momentarily dedicated self moderated Boards at the forum. Furthermore, MGT continued to be active in the WikiLeaks Facebook Page he had been given access by ST, posting links from the forum. MGT treated the page as a personal channel to status and potential income, as if his position and work on WikiLeaks Facebook page deserved recompense. For example he promoted the forum’s volunteer translation project 17 times during April 2012 accommodating nicely his own personal interests. Consequently, he was removed as admin for the WL FB page in the Summer 2012. MGT indicated that WL had not endorsed the forum after all.

Openly anti-WikiLeaks:

From that point onwards he stopped supporting WikiLeaks and Julian Assange but retained and operated the platforms under his control in a systematic and persistent attempt to subvert support towards the organisation whose name and logos he still brandished. Starting from July 2012, after the Release by WikiLeaks of the Syria Files, he openly expressed among “Forum Staff” his opposition to this release branding Julian Assange an agent of the West trying to destabilise Middle East and impose regime change favouring the Muslim Brotherhood. Furthermore, he stated that Julian Assange should go to Sweden to face the allegations against him as he was in no more danger to being extradited to the US from Sweden than from the UK.  The twitter account started following “The Objectiviser”. In a series of posts shared at the Forum’s Facebook Staff Room he accused WikiLeaks of being a cult, of misrepresenting the facts of the Ecuadorian Embassy seize by the police, twisting the truth, and privately expressed contempt for many of the people involved. His change was so sudden and complete, his claims so extraordinarily absurd that created a strong reaction even among ‘Forum Staff’.

The effect of his change was profound.

Some mods/admins immediately adopted his stance, and remain active by his side to this day. Other ‘staff’ as well as members left immediately sounding the bell of alarm, mostly through Twitter or engaged in debates in forum threads. The new direction of being ‘objective’, non aligned came into conflict with the notion of being a supportive site, alienating and confusing members and mods, causing a mass exodus in late August/September 2012. Many wondered what was going on at the ‘wikileaks-forum.

In late August the WikiLeaks Facebook Page stopped linking to the forum. On the 26/08/2012 would be the third time that MGT advertised the forum and all associated platforms for sale to the highest bidder, but still, it appears that he continued its operation. He got rid of the word ‘Official’ from the title page, publicly distanced the forum from WikiLeaks, removed ‘Other Supporters Platforms Board‘, amended the mission statement and invited the known anti-WikiLeaks persona “The Objectiviser” to have and moderate his own board at the forum. This persona was the admin at the Wikiwatcher.com website a well known anti-WL site owned by Alan Taylor of the PGP Board, another anti-WL operator who in 2010 had tried to present in his own forum a group called ‘the Wikileaks insiders’ as a group of nameless but credible WL/JA critics https://archive.today/3Kz3z . In his board ‘The Objectiviser’ was re-producing smearing and critical material that came from http://www.wikiwatch.org.uk .

The Mods at the wikileaks-forum website who adopted the new direction were rewarded by becoming Admins. In the course of Autumn 2012 more people within the community denounced the forum and in October 2012 it momentarily closed and was re-launched “under new ownership”. David Viaine (Pathios), days before becoming the new ‘owner’, had written the very telling blogpost “The day WikiLeaks died for me” and the re-launch, despite having wiped off “The Objectiviser” Board, it continued its anti-WikiLeaks stand. Around that time the twitter account followers suddenly doubled overnight, they were obviously fake. In fact the ownership of the forum (domain name) had never changed hands, it was all a front and David Viaine quit his involvement in January 2013 siting differences in politics and management style.

Dis-endorsement:

On the 17/01/2013, MGT deleted The Syria Files Board. A forum statement claimed that the “Syria Files” release would “support the destruction of an elected government” and stated that “our conscience won’t allow us to be a part of a propaganda war against a sovereign state.” The following day 18/01/2013 the WikiLeaks.org supporters page showed an update that remains to this day:

“The “WikiLeaks Forum” is not run or endorsed by WikiLeaks and has no connection to WikiLeaks whatsoever.”

The dis-endorsement was presented by MGT as an attack and an effort to deny that although MGT was the owner, Sigurdur Thordarson as a WikiLeaks volunteer had co-founded it and therefore gave it legitimacy, irrelevant of how WikiLeaks viewed it. To support this, on 26/01/2013 a post that had been written by “Q”, Siggi’s forum nick, before he left, (date unknown), and was originally for the eyes of Forum admins only, was published by admin Anon1984 at the forum.

Under secret ownership:

On 01/02/2013 new ownership was announced that remained a secret. It was around the same time that information was coming to light in press reports concerning FBI’s activities in Iceland and WikiLeaks in their 07/02/2013 editorial “Eight FBI agents conduct interrogation in Iceland in relation to ongoing U.S. investigation of WikiLeaks” without mentioning Siggi by name, offered enough information to identify him as the young person who was in contact with the FBI. It ends with the words:

“There is strong indication that the FBI used a combination of coercion and payments to pressure the young man to co-operate.”

In July 2013 MGT re-published Q’s earlier post amidst revelations in the press by ST himself that he was a paid FBI informant. In August 2013 ST returned to the forum with an account and posted a statement outlining his involvement in its creation. MGT stood by ST and in discussion threads among the admins and their other handles, supported ST’s claims and assertions, again presenting ST association with the origins of the forum as legitimising it. The bullying exhibited by MGT from the creation of the forum as an Admin towards members, mods and admins that expressed different opinions, now exhibited itself in crude and rude attacks towards WikiLeaks and supporters via the forum’s twitter account and forum threads throughout the later part of 2012 and 2013. As the year went by the relentless attacks intensified against WL/JA supporters as well as the newly fledged WikiLeaks Party.

In September, despite all the evidence to the contrary, MGT re-named the forum to WikiLeaks Supporters Forum mirroring the title of a rival forum that had started earlier in the year, adding them to the long list of people to attack.

After the failure to establish a Wikipedia Page, in October 2013 a forum post ‘Facts about the WikiLeaks Forum‘ was published, laden with wilful distortions of facts. It was  spread around through MGT controlled social media platforms to over 15,000 member’s e-mail accounts, 180,000 Facebook news feeds, in Twitter, as well as posted at the Support-Julian-Assange blog. It was translated in various languages and quoted again and again.Among other inaccuracies, It wrongly claimed that WL had dis-endorsed the forum as a result of a refusal by MGT to share members’ e-mails with WL for the purpose of a call to join wlfriends.

On the topic of Finance, no mention was made to the Forum’s Donation button and the members’ financial contributions to MGT, neither was any mention of income generated by the sale of back links, footer links, or any other Search Engine Optimisation income generating tools and techniques, MGT’s expertise. Whether the new owner had paid for the site, remains a mystery. Soon after that a letter by ‘Friends of WikiLeaks’ circulated among the community of supporters warning that the forum had turned anti-WikiLeaks.  The WLF response was a most bizarre piece of theatre that ever existed. One of the MGT controlled Facebook Pages named FoWL (Friends of WikiLeaks), run by Jerry Barney a loyal MGT admin posted an open Letter of Apology to all those who had received the Warning Letter.  Purchased Facebook Likes were employed to give the appearance that such theatrics met with the approval of the public.

Such subversion techniques can only be remotely effective in creating Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt when the line between fact and fiction is disguised. MGT’s social media platforms are perfectly disguised in WikiLeaks brand, names, logos and a myriad of relevant content, in the form of articles about WL and JA collected from the internet and inserted into all the platforms like a well organised URL/link farm operation bringing traffic into a website.

WikiLeaks: ‘wikileaks-forum is a fraud’:

In response, and for the very first time, WikiLeaks tweeted several messages through Oct/Nov and Dec 2013 on the subject that left no room for doubt.  WLF and platforms controlled by MGT have nothing to do with WikiLeaks, they are a fraud on the public, they are e-mail harvesters. Since then the attacks against WL intensified further with posts like  ‘Never mind the FBI, Assange is the Forums biggest troll‘. In 2014 new evidence has come to light that ‘forum staff’ have spoilt an Avaaz petition with over 2300 signatories subverting support for Julian Assange further turning it into a tool to bully and defame supporters. Steps were also taken to populate #taiji #seashepherd twitter hashtags through a new Sea Shepherd forum Board as a means of infiltrating potential support base for the WikiLeaks Party. Further concerns exist that WLF is using the WikiLeaks name and logos to deceive not only the support base but also the general public and media by dabbling in WikiLeaks publishing work, soliciting submissions and benefiting in higher web traffic through the perceived association its name creates. The wikileaks-forum.com website turned into the most dangerous tool for anti-WikiLeaks operators because thousands of social media users and even journalists still confuse it and it’s numerous Facebook pages with WikiLeaks. Action must be taken to stop this fraud.
