How to Get On / Game Google Trends - So People Are Using Auto-Refresh Reload to Get on Google Trends...

Now I'm learning how people get their crazy search terms on Google Trends. Yesterday, when the melee of AT&T censoring 4Chan broke out, I saw a tweet that urged people to open 5 tabs in their browsers and search for "AT&T blocking 4Chan" or something -- then to use auto-refresh to get that term on Google Trends.


So I looked up how to auto-refresh on Firefox, my favorite browser, and found a Firefox auto-reload plugin -- but didn't actually use it.

I'm assuming it would take lots of different computers with lots of different IP addresses for this type of thing to actually affect Google Trends with the topic you want to see -- and I don't know how many.

But people who have a lot of followers can get this to work. Or, those who know how to get around that "you've been querying Google too much" or whatever error code that makes you put in a catchpa code.

Anyone ever done it?

And once again, it NEVER fails with the incessant lying, as lying is a way of life for these hacker creeps. I salute AT&T for blocking viruses, trojans and nasty spider scripts, as that is what the REAL truth is as to WHY AT&T has flashed the middle finger [blocked] to 4 Chan. Why should AT&T waste time and energy in dealing with viruses, trojans and uncontrollable script programs emanating from the 4 Chan site?

I don't condone censorship and I certainly don't condone lies "in the name of lulz". The only thing 4 Chan has proven again and again, is that they are infantile and violent. A bunch of two year olds who go on tirades. And just like an out of control two year old, they need some REAL hard slaps from the school of hard knocks.

Any consequences or denial of internet access to AT&T customers due to NAZI actions emanating from 4 Chan [or any other hacker creeps for that matter], I pray that they are caught, rounded up, prosecuted beyond the extent of the law, thrown in a windowless cell and locked up forever until the day they die.

I commend AT&T for taking the step forward and I sincerely hope that other ISP'S follow suit ASAP. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Hackers cause destruction, chaos, waste everyones time and energy. Normal people on the net are SICK AND TIRED of these two year old tantrum antics that 4 Chan displays on a daily basis. These hacker creeps really and truly need to GROW THE F*** UP.
