Story itself sounds fake as shiat, obviously there are plenty of astroturfers on this and every similar large site, but I'm sure they aren't recruited like secret agents.

Let's do this people.   Don't forget your protection.  Don't look anyone in the eye.  Be firm, but polite.  And lets sell this.


Drop pants, look right, and grab left?

Trolling Fark? Just like IRL, there are prostitutes and there are those who give it away for free.

I've already written down 31 names from this thread alone that I now suspect of being paid shills.

Oh, wait, 32 now.

So this is a paid anti-Israel piece? Got it.

I am. Ok, I'm not, but I'm interested in the job.

James!: Sure he was.


This.

I have no doubt these companies may exist, but the author of this piece never worked for one. This "article" reads like a ninth-grade writing assignment.

I think if you want to be anti-israel all you need do is ask why it is the US supports Israel and what we get out of the deal.

James!: Are they trolls or do they just not agree with the majority of farkers? It's more conspiracy nonsense. People think their opinions are so right and beautiful that anyone who disagrees is an obvious troll. Having a contrary opinion in a harsh way? Obvious troll. Consistently having a contrary opinion? Obvious paid troll. Having a consistently contrary opinion and not being banned? ZOMG OBVIOUS PAID MOD TROLL!!!


Are the majority of Fark mods so wildly naive and inattentive that they actually believe that people are labelled as trolls for disagreeing with the majority opinion, or is it just you?

I love Israel, I saw this video about this one time, when those dirty pretenders of palestine were busy getting killed by tank rounds, an Israeli Captain notice this young girls dolly in the middle of the firing area and IMMEDIATELY ordered the shelling of the nearby houses to make sure the little girl never was lonely for her dolly again.

If thats not love, I dont want to know what is!

I imagine your list of who is a troll is quite long.  The fact that they all happen to disagree with you politically is no doubt a coincidence.

"payment" of sorts.

James!: I imagine your list of who is a troll is quite long. The fact that they all happen to disagree with you politically is no doubt a coincidence.


EVERYONE on Fark disagrees with me politically on some issues. You don't see me calling everyone on Fark a troll, do you?

I am sick and tired of people (especially those in "power") obfuscating the real issues that Fark has by completely misrepresenting them. This is a perfect example. People are not labelled trolls because they disagree with the majority opinion, and anyone who says otherwise hasn't been paying attention. The very notion is patently ridiculous, as no two people's political opinions are exactly the same.

Stop trying to turn Fark's troll problem into some petty fight between people who don't agree. That's not the problem and you know it (or at least should know it). All you're doing is obfuscating the real issues and making it harder for anyone to do anything about it. You should be ashamed of yourself.
 
2013-01-10 02:50:31 PM
so i can believe that people are payed to astroturf, which is imminently believable.
or i can believe that above top secret is the crazy play ground where imagination goes to dry hump reality, which is equally believable.

united amalgamated industries, really?

NowhereMon: I wonder how many of these we have at FARK...


I doubt any. I'm sure many feel that the postings on Fark actually carry weight or are being seen by different organizations but the truth is this isn't the place people go for meaningful politiclal insight. Sorry kids. Most of the political comments are trolls.

I do know Fark is a wonderful resource for Radio DJ's who are looking to find quirky stories to add to thier banter.

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.


Basically this. I mean, I like to check in every now and then but I have to...you know...work so my family can live. I suppose it would be easier if this was my job.

Actually, I don't recognize you.  So who knows what you think or what you've seen.  I know what I've scene, I've seen a lot of people accuse others of being trolls for making arguments they don't like.  I see it everyday.

How are you defining troll, by the way?

you are a puppet: Story itself sounds fake as shiat, obviously there are plenty of astroturfers on this and every similar large site, but I'm sure they aren't recruited like secret agents.


Definitely fake.  I'm not saying there aren't public relations firms who pay people to post viral marketing sh*t on the internet, but the idea that they operate like some sort of terrorist cell is just stupid.

I think the gun control threads...gun owner threads...might paint a different picture.  Lately those have been hard to keep up with since everyone on the other side is a troll.  Not saying you think that way, though you protest a lot, but especially with the pol tab, the word troll is used way too often.  Also, idiot, moron, dumbfark, mental midget, too dumb to breath, and bob.
