WikiLeaks-Forum: Who’s Who?

@wikileaks_forum is a fraud. It, "support-julian-assange.com", the FoWL/WL Germany Facebook groups are fronts for the same entity.

Regrettably, the owner of WikiLeaks-Forum strives to manipulate public opinion in several ways with the help of his staffers. The forum pretends to host lively discussions of a huge community while in fact most of the forum posts (more than 90 percent) are done by staffers.

Also, the related Twitter discussion is mainly fueled by forum administrators, dressed up as private opinions.

The key stakeholders of WikiLeaks-Forum are:

Goeder-Tarant is the founder of WikiLeaks-Forum. He also owns the blog site support-julian-assange.com and runs numerous Facebook pages, including:
Goeder-Tarant launched the forum in 2011, together with Sigurdur Thordarson alias Siggi who later turned out to be an FBI mole.

Goeder-Tarant tried to sell the forum in August 2012, after he lost the trust of WikiLeaks. Later on, he falsely claimed not to be the owner of the forum anymore. However, the "Donate to Forum Hosting Campaign" linked to Goeder-Tarant’s private PayPal account until summer 2014 and subsequently to the private PayPal account of his wife.

Goeder-Tarant feels surrounded by traitors and enemies. He collects data on everyone arround him and logs any communication. This data are used to intimidate former staffers and to bully opponents. He has frequently published private chat logs and e-mails.

Scheidt is very active on numerous forums and blogs, mainly related to conspiracy theories, paranormal phenomena and UFOs, mostly in German. He wrote approx. 7,500 posts and 18,000 tweets over the past 5 years.

Scheidt is the right hand of Goeder-Tarant and does the dirty work for the forum like slander and libel. His specialty are faked pictures and screen captures. He is best described as stupid but dangerous.

Barney became forum administrator in Summer 2012, after Goeder-Tarant’s decision to turn against WikiLeaks. She also administrates some of Goeder-Tarant’s Facebook pages.

She was the one who publicly invited the anti-WikiLeaks platform WikiWatch to join the forum. Wikiwatch is hosted and owned by the notorious WikiLeaks-hater Alan Taylor.

Barney is responsible for the faked "Open Apology from FoWL" letter.

Isabettini was moderator from the outset and became forum administrator in 2012. She is the only one of the original staff who still supports the forum after Goeder-Tarant’s turnaround. Also, she seems to be the only staffer who still believes to support WikiLeaks.

Reiter joined the forum in April 2012 and became administrator within a few weeks. She is obviously connected to the professional anti-WikiLeaks persona Sandra K. Eckersley.
