Earlier this morning there's an intense debate between the ARG and KUIP Regarding the Wahabi sect: Is it a form deviation or not.

I usually don`t blog about religious matter since it's religious is something that you adher within you and practice and the only things that matters are between the self and the Lord.  

Nonetheless it's a good time to perform some behaviour analaysis on how the Wahabi Cybertrooper reacts on the Internet.

this is the screenshot of the debate on youtube.

According the rules of the PromediaTajdid page they require people to subscribe to their page for one minute before allowing people to submit to their chat:

The Youtube chat are generated using the following schema in json

    "action_type": "add_chat_item",
    "author": {
        "id": "",
        "images": [
                "id": "source",
                "url": "https://yt4.ggpht.com/"
                "height": 32,
                "id": "32x32",
                "url": "https://yt4.ggpht.com/",
                "width": 32

From there we can parse all  the data and converted to CSV or Excel to massage the data.

Data dump

We run a simple frequency analysis to pinpoint top 10 Cybertroopers. and the result is quite fast.

Confirmed Cybertroopers. 

Our Wise Imam Said:

ﺍِﺫَﺍ ﻧَﻄَﻖَ ﺍﻟﺴَّﻔِﻴْﻪُ ﻭَﺗُﺠِﻴْﺒُﻬُﻔَﺦٌﺮْﻳَ ﻣِﻦْ ﺍِﺟَﺎﺑَﺘِﻪِ ﺍﻟﺴُّﻜُﻮْﺕُ

Now that we managed to pinpoint the bots: It's easier to extract the Nonsense that the Wahabi team sponsored. The way most of the troopers works is type before thought:

First zach Yahya

Some are ouf the topic as well. We are debating about the deviation of Wahabi .

No idea how is this related to the debate

The Haq

We can also perform frequency based on phrases as well. unfortunately there's nothing we can learn from their side except for trolling.

Top 8 word phrases

And mostly nonsense emoji and keywords

In order to deliver quality deliverables , ProMediaTajdid should at least have the decency to control the quality of comments instead of letting some random garbage .
