NowhereMon: I wonder how many of these we have at FARK...
DammitIForgotMyLogin: NowhereMon: I wonder how many of these we have at FARK...That depends, do you mean individual people, or accounts?
R.A.Danny: They guy is well paid, but the company is in a run down building with a dirty office in a crap neighborhood. The thing of film noir legends.
Gulper Eel: Not without a blonde...the kind of blonde to make a bishop kick a hole in a stained-glass window.
Rev.K: I'm guessing they do exist on Fark. I can't think of anything else to explain the long list of known threadsh*tters who show up in every single thread about a particular topic.
James!: Sure he was.
sweetmelissa31: James!: Sure he was.Are you just skeptical because you're a Moderator, and trolls tend to increase the number of posts in a thread and the number of times articles are viewed?You may not have noticed, but there are people who post the same thing in every thread relating to certain topics. It could be that they are bored and have a strong but ridiculous opinion about a topic, or it could be that they are paid. There are more reasons to believe that someone was paid to make posts on the internet than to believe that someone made up a story about being paid to post on the internet. What does he have to gain from it?
James!: Some people are so wildly self absorbed that they think people have to be paid to disagree with them.
Dr.Fey: James!: Sure he was.Of course!She gave me only a phone-number and an address, in one of the seedier parts of San Francisco"They don't have a website. Or even a name. You'll see. Just tell them I referred you."...this "company" changed its name almost monthly"You can't tell anyone what we do here. Not your wife, not your dog.""We'll give you a cover story and even a phone number and a fake website you can use."...making my living lying and heckling people who come online to express their views and exercise freedom of speechA fantasy written by someone who imagines that's what happens. Not as if there aren't enough actual zealous people out there that voluntarily and willfully (and frequently) post the craziness, any of whom could be easily hired. If groups are truly paying "non-believers" to do this, why would this super-secret network be revealed anonymously on "consciouslifenews.com"? After all, even if the author signed an NDA and then stepped forward and went public after no longer working there, who's going to sue to enforce it?I also like how the editorial before and after kind of distances itself, yet gives it an overall endorsement of confidence.Stupid.
sweetmelissa31: James!: Some people are so wildly self absorbed that they think people have to be paid to disagree with them.Nobody thinks that everyone who disagrees with them is paid. But there are some fairly obvious trolls whom I'm sure you notice, but have your own reasons to claim they are not trolls.
MrBallou: Off topic: Anybody heard from BillCo lately? I'm worried about him.
GAT_00: Rev.K: I'm guessing they do exist on Fark. I can't think of anything else to explain the long list of known threadsh*tters who show up in every single thread about a particular topic.I don't think that's the proof so much as they last a couple months, and then disappear to be replaced with an entirely new login created 4 days previously saying the exact same things.
