Pathetic, isn't it? ;)
Not really I know there is a good bunch lurking about.

Army drops 'psy ops' name for influence operations
Different name, same game.
Psychological operations, mind control, perception influence, perception management....
U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Ken McGraw said Thursday the new name, adopted last month, more accurately reflects the unit's job of producing leaflets, radio broadcasts and loudspeaker messages to influence enemy soldiers and civilians.
"One of the catalysts for the transition is foreign and domestic sensitivities to the term 'psychological operations' that often lead to a misunderstanding of the mission," McGraw said.
According to this fellow the moniker 'psy-op' abbreviated version of psychological operations has a "nefarious connotation"
"Somehow it gives a nefarious connotation, but I think that this baggage can be overcome," said PaddockAccording to the article psy-ops are all about producing leaflets, radio broadcasts and loudspeaker messages. Decidedly non-nefarious stuff. Still, a name change was in order?
What should be obvious to you is that the name change was necessary to hide the underhanded, nefarious, downright evil of psy-ops.
I will share some other links with you- you decide harmful or harmless?
When Seeing and Hearing Isn't Believing
Digital morphing — voice, video, and photo — has come of age, available for use in psychological operations. PSYOPS, as the military calls it, seek to exploit human vulnerabilities in enemy governments, militaries and populations to pursue national and battlefield objectives.
To some, PSYOPS is a backwater military discipline of leaflet dropping and radio propaganda. (As the article linked at the beginning of this post would have us believe) To a growing group of information war technologists, it is the nexus of fantasy and reality. Being able to manufacture convincing audio or video, they say, might be the difference in a successful military operation or coup.
Think of Osama Bin Laden tapes?
Perfect for brainwashing an evil clone army
Then of course there is the entire gamut of mkultra experimentation. Experimentation conducted to gain psychological advantages that could be used, against the population if necessary, for all manner of nefarious reasons.
