Community Highlight. Member studying political science gives some possible insight into MisterXmedia.

***DISCLAIMER***

THIS POST MENTIONS MAJOR POLITICAL ISSUES GOING ON IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW.  NORMALLY I WOULD TRY TO AVOID SUCH TOPICS, BUT THIS COMMENT WAS INFORMATIVE AND ACTUALLY RELATES TO THE THINGS WE TALK ABOUT ON THIS SITE.  I AM NOT GOING TO SAY YOU CANNOT COMMENT ON THE POLITICAL ISSUES.  FEEL FREE TO IN THIS CASE, BUT TRY YOUR VERY BEST TO REMAIN RESPECTFUL OF EVERYONE WHEN YOU DO.  THAT IS ALL I ASK.  READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.

As I have done in the past when people post very interesting things in the comment section I wanted to take this opportunity to share a comment that opened my eyes a lot.  The user who posted it goes by the name of paulfrank and says he is studying political sciences.  He said he's been following the ongoings in Russia and has noticed some things that overlap between people in the news and MisterXmedia as far as their interactions go.  This was extremely interesting to me and I felt that it deserved a Community Highlight post.  Enough of me putting words in his mouth though.  Enjoy!

"Maybe even VGLeaks to some degree are right.
But Xbox one is not 1.2T console. It it more powerful and costs more. Games do look better.

I know it is hard to understand but....you need to read many insiders post to understand that what will happen next."
"MS can not be that stupid to sell 1.2tf console for a higher price then 1.8 tf console.
But Sony has no choose. Brainwash and cheap tricks is the only weapon for them to try to conquer this super advanced tech MS is hiding."
I've chosen these quotes for a reason:
I'm studying political sciences and have been following the Crimea/Eastern Ukraine situation for a seminar paper both in Western and Russian media, mostly CNN and the Kremlin-funded RT to be precise. There's definitely an overlap with regards to the narrative and style of language used by Russian media and MrX who is Russian himself. Not just with words like "brainwash", "lie", "fake" et al. which are astonishingly often used in Russian media but also in a lot of stories there's always this underlying narrative of: "There must be something else to the story!" And Russians hold onto that believe until the contrary has been unmistakably confirmed from what they believe is the "reliable" source of two sides.
A good past example was the shootdown of Korean Airlines Flight 007: "The Soviet Union initially denied knowledge of the incident,[2] but later admitted the shootdown, claiming that the aircraft was on a spy mission.[3] The Politburo said it was a deliberate provocation by the United States[4] to test the Soviet Union's military preparedness, or even to provoke a war." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K...
(Yes, the US shot down a passenger jet as well, but let's not get into the Whataboutism thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W...
One thing in particular I noted in the past few weeks that reminded me a lot of MrX' behavior as well was the demand put forward by the Kremlin to the US govt to release evidence of their claim Russia is firing missiles into Ukraine territory. When pictures eventually made its way onto the net by the US amb to Ukraine to support that claim it took mere hours for the Russian govt to react and call them a "fake". No matter what evidence one would release it'll be just disregarded as "fake", "fabricated", "lie" and "brainwash" which effectively shuts the door for every meaningful discussion that could be had. And overall that's something one can observe by reading MrX's comments, with the one's I posted above as an example.
The HuffPo had a good short article on conspiracy theories in Russia which explains why it's common for Russian to get into them:
"The Brezhnev era was marked by any number of shortages of this or that consumer good, but what was truly in short supply was information. The state media and government famously restricted access to news and cultural production. (...) The paucity of reliable information, and the nakedly partisan nature in which information was presented, not only facilitated skepticism about official pronouncements, but also left a knowledge vacuum easily filled by speculation and rumor" (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...
Even if he's too young to have lived much, if any, of his adult live in the 1970/1980's it's very likely something he has learned this kind of skepticism from his parents. 
Anyway, I know politics is a sensitive issue that'll get people riled up but it might give you an insight into how MrX ticks when you consider how and where he was brought up.

Now, I think at this point we can all safely say there's no "insider", because dollmytee, you've done a great job disproving tons and tons of his claims for all people to see. What I'm more interested in is if he's constructing this alternative reality all by himself *using* Russian conspiracy theory methods or if there's really someone who has mailed him these "insider" claims for more than two years which just feeds into his alternative reality view.
Cheers!
