Yes I get you about Russia being better at social media Trolling ...
Other nations have their own ways to spread dis information

The IP filters you speak of sound a good idea in principle ... regarding organised trolling ... if they could eliminate multi profiles etc ... though I expect the culprits of Trolling would find a way around it

Odd how the thread topic never enters your posts...yet you still get to keep posting!


When readers are being made paranoid by the postings in this topic to cover up the crimes which have been going on, I will point people to it.

And I was telling you, as a Dutch person who has no contact with Russia whatsoever, how the hell I should know that?

People only get paranoid when the truth hit's a bit too close to home.

Which is why RT is defending them. And it seems to be hitting a bit close for you, but please keep up the good work.

It doesn't matter where your from trolling doesn't follow international borders.

And remember you have already admitted to derailing threads, because you don't like what's in them.

I agree in so much as ... the ones making the accusations have their own skeletons to hide ...
Attack is the best form of defence in this manner
Would I could trust my government to tell the truth ... but they can not be trusted ... proven by all the lies and corruption by them

Yes I know, you'll trample all over T&C's to defend mother Russia. We've all seen it. You'll keep doing it until stopped of course, like all ultra nationalists.

Here is a definition of "Troll"

One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument



if you're organized and spreading a message you're trolling .


Also according to the definition ... A Troll can be a solitary creature ... But you can be organized and spread a message without being a Troll also ...

How do we/others define what a troll is or is not is my question ... and also a point I wish to make is ... people are called Trolls when that label does not apply ...

A Troll in it's original meaning ... was an imaginary creature ...
Without bastardising it's original meaning what other label would you place ... Mis information agent perhaps or propagandist or what




The word you are looking for is "shill".

The opposite of that statement is also true
Lies and superstition create Paranoia also

There is certain IP range for commercial pages, certain IP range to porn sites etc. I believe there is also certain IP range for state owned domains. You can easily block certain IP ranges in your own computer without extra tools.

I can agree other countries have trolls. But the Russian trolls are far more prevalent and far more organized.


But far less effective because their propaganda doesn't work on western people like it does on Russians.

Westerners seem to see it for what it is all but immediately enmass.

Just my observations from my wanderings across the net the last few months.

Now get back on topic and look up the definition of troll army. The addition of army to troll implies organization.


The newspaper article could be said to be biased and Anti Russian other wise.



Wrong..... The owner of The Independent Newspaper (Alexander Lebedev) is Russian, a good friend of Putins and ex KGB!

While I have no doubt that there are 'Kremlin troll factories', sadly there are many people who are so indoctrinated and so full of hate, that they spread their propaganda for free while enjoying it. It's ironic. All the 'hate the west but luv Russia' crap that they post, and they use an American run board to whine on. They couldn't 'hate Russia and luv America' like that in Russia.





So nobody is allowed to have an opinion if it does not align with America or they must be "full of hate"?

Are you an American? If so, would that not make your opinion slightly biased? You are just mad that people are not siding with YOUR country.

I have not witnessed anything like what you have mentioned in Russia, but I have never been there. I have never been in then US (4 hours drive to Seattle airport and back,once) but from what I can see on these boards is that the KGB might not come get you for saying the wrong thing, but here the public community is the ones that assault posters with dislike and name calling and there is never any help from an authority here unless you are pro American.

It might go down differently in Russia than the US, but the results are the same.

The only thing which is hitting me close is the cover up of atrocities by The West.

...and either this forum is filled with paranoid Americans, or there are lots of Western paid posters who try to manipulate readers their fears so they can cover up those atrocities.

Having seen how comment sections in The Netherlands and Germany, which are not infected with paid posters, and how they are actually evolving in these matters...there are only two options left, either Americans are paranoid as hell, or it`s a common tactic to try and discredit members by making the impression there are a bunch here on this forum.

And because a bunch think I am, but I `m not, the only logical conclusion can be after that, either paranoid or a deliberate tactic.


So what is it ?

Yet I have several removals for off topic posting, even when the post is relevant to the present context of the discussion, just like now.
