Well the thing is, there have been legit ATSers who have been wrongfully accused of being "shills" on ATS simply because they disagreed with the main
line of thought in a thread. I for instance have been wrongfully accused of being a "shill" simply because I am a critic of AGW theory. For the
record, I sincerely am of the opinion that AGW proponents are bending the scientific method so to suit political agendas, and no, I am not paid for my
comments against AGW - I value truth far more than money.
So yes, there most probably are shills in ATS. I am quite sure that there are paid shills in the "social issue" forum, it'd be illogical if there was
none. But I think fellow ATSers should be treated as innocent until proven guilty
. Because an ATSer disagrees with someone else doesn't
necessarily mean this ATSer is automatically a shill. The accusation still requires evidences.
Just keep that in mind.
