    • Left out the part about how this was used to combat illegal foreclosures on farms on the 1900s. They would drown out the competitors allowing the family to keep their farm, and not letting the bank get any money

    • Penny Auctions were the exact same thing. No farmer would bid on fellow farmer equipment as it was forcefully auctioned so the farmer could buy his shit back for a penny.
