I know they exist, I was one myself. Not on this website and no longer. No one believes me though.
The pay was decent and the work fun. Look for job postings for "political blogger" to get started in the field. Ultimately I quit because I needed
better pay, and health insurance, which "they" didn't provide.
Oh and to identify paid shills, it's easy. They always have good spelling and grammar, that's one of the requirements of the job. It's also a
requirement that they spend a minimum of four weeks "warming up" to the online communities they will be posting to. This involves four weeks of
posting in off topic categories, gaining credibility and looking legitimate before delving into political issues.
They are encouraged to be thread starters, as threads get more exposure than individual comments.
Some websites had "paid status" donation systems to get a badge on your profile, or access to members only forums. We were given a $50/wk. allowance
The work was mostly freelance, in the sense we were given a topic of persuasion and method, and we had to use our own wit to find websites to practice
our work. We had to be actively posting to a minimum of 10 websites per week. Occassionally, there were specific target sites they asked us to go to,
such as Facebook or CNN.
On Facebook, fake profiles were made, and "friends" were bought. Certain fan pages were targeted, and certain people befriended to gain access to
their friends and followers.
