If you are a regime that is trying to find dissidence in your society you could use such a system to bring them to the surface. Write a inflammatory comment to insight comments (as mentioned in the article, troll bot) then break down doors and disappear people to the "retraining centres", I mean torture camps.

At any rate, local MAN's are starting to look more and more of a solution to how the internet (WAN) is shaping up. It's a shame and a reason why we (as humans) can't have nice things.
