Opposing faction glyph messages coming through portals?

Has anyone noticed glyph messages aligned with the opposing faction coming through portals? For example, I recently got this from a level 7 enlightened portal:

  • HELP - RESISTANCE - STRONG - VICTORY

I also got the following from resistance portals:

  • HELP - ENLIGHTENED - STRONG - VICTORY
  • ATTACK - RESISTANCE - PERSUE - ENLIGHTENEMENT
  • FOLLOW - SHAPERS - PORTAL - MESSAGE (granted, this was under an enlightened field)
  • DEFEND - HUMAN - NAZEER - LIE
  • CONTEMPLATE - COMPLEX - SHAPER - TRUTH
  • SHAPER - MIND - COMPLEX - HARMONY
  • HELP - SHAPERS - CREATE - FUTURE

I don't think it matters if the portal is under a field. For instance, HELP - RESISTANCE - STRONG - VICTORY came from a level 7 enlightened portal that was under an enlightened field. Although, I did use a Jarvis virus to convert it to enlightened (which I did to practice glyph hacking enlightened portals,) but I did that several weeks ago and I just got that message.

I realize that some of these messages could be sent from a trickster archetype and be pro faction messages. For instance, CONTEMPLATE - COMPLEX - SHAPER - TRUTH could be interpreted as the shapers are telling half-lies, and rightfully urge the agent to see more than what is on the surface. But, others like HELP - SHAPERS - CREATE - FUTURE is clearly a pro-shaper message coming from a resistance portal.

Anyone else experience this?

    It's been that way since the introduction of glyph hacking in 2014.

    As far as I know, the sequences are given at random. Other agents hacking at the same time as you will see different sequences, and there's a small chance that the same glyphs will appear in several sequences in a row. There's even a chance that you get the same sequence twice in a row from time to time.

    I cant say I've ever seen a condition that determines whether you'll see more or less of a given glyph or sequence. Well, there was this one time right at the start of one particular April where things got really toasty...

  • If you want to ask my opinion, ENL portals should support ENL messages (except the Osiris one), same as RES portals. Mixing together makes me angry xD. Sometimes I dont write them correctly because I'm annoyed because of the content xD

    It's just ADA trolling you by inserting glyph sequences that support your opposing faction. 😝 Though of the sequences that lean toward resistance, my favorite one is "interrupt enlightenment technology..." because it always makes me picture "troll my green friends sitting next to me at the xfac meetup by distracting them so they mess up the glyph sequence".
