Are you a paid shill?

Posted 09 January 2013 - 10:58 AM

I Was a Paid Internet Shill: How Shadowy Groups Manipulate Internet Opinion and Debate

I've noticed a lot of shilly arguments in the gun threads and so forth on this site. No doubt we've got 'em. Probably kipper is one. You'd have to be paid to have that many posts. Just kidding, kipper...

Quote

The site-specific info in the second binder included a brief history each site, including recent flame-wars, as well as info on what to avoid on each site so as not to get banned. It also had quite detailed info on the moderators and the most popular regged posters on each site: location (if known), personality type, topics of interest, background sketch, and even some notes on how to “push the psychological buttons” of different posters. Although I didn’t work for ATS, I did see they had a lot of info on your so-called “WATS” posters here (the ones with gold borders around their edges). “Focus on the popular posters,” my trainer told me. “These are the influential ones. Each of these is worth 50 to 100 of the lesser known names.”


Interesting how that works...

Are you a paid shill?
Is it fun as hell?

Funny - I had you squarely in the 'shill' column on the spread sheet. Maybe I was wrong? Then again it would just be the typical shill thing to start a thread about shills to throw people off their own trail.

Yes.. I am certain that is all the shills were waiting for - someone to ask them to stand up and be counted.

Who the fuck am I? Who the fuck are you?! I only heard about YOU yesterday, saying things about how you're above eating squirrels you killed/cooked/cleaned yourself and how you'll settle for nothing less than prepackaged fish sticks that actually cost money.

3,828 posts vs 246 posts. I can see why P4P would be so condescending toward noob such as LoD. Srsly. Only 3,828 posts? You need to step up your game, son.

I've know LoD for a few years. I've only seen you around in the last month. I'm gonna have to side with B9 and LoD on this one.
