No better example of a paid troll. Just visit the Japan Forums and look through a few threads shortly after 3/11/11.

It is rather quite obvious who they are without me mentioning any names.

Mod Note #2

Please stay on the topic as outlined by the OP. The discussion is paid internet trolls being used by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Not ATS members on various other topics.

Thank you.

I can't remember exactly when but another ATS poster was saying he was paid (PPP) as well. Not specifically for Hillary, but to post pro and anti on whatever the handlers told him too. Huffington Post, ATS, Facebook, YouTube videos and anywhere that gained traction for comments.
The internet no longer has exclusively organic opinions of individuals, it is obvious there is paid individuals posting on a variety of topics, the 9/11 forums had them at one time, but I believe with their mission largely accomplished they have finished that task and are mostly gone.

I believe that 2012 was the last year where there was some level of purity on the internet, it is now completely lost.
I have seen this on a few websites I visit, it is most pronounced on the Huffington Post, and to smaller degree here on ATS.

It's sad when you can't trust posters opinions are their own, but might be propaganda.

It is a topic I have researched.
Paid posters are on the clock. It costs them money to invest in topics outside their agenda. They will occasionally post on a topic unrelated to their paycheck to mislead, but it will almost always be just one or two posts in relation to the 150 posts on another singular topic with little to no deviation from a theme. I have not seen paid political marketeering posters on ATS, I have seen government sponsored posters, usually China, Iran, Syria and Russia. Paid forum posters in the USA are more rare..and mostly product promotion and when political they aim for more mainstream, highly viewed sites...huffpost..fox news sites..etc. ATS is not enough band for the buck.


Russia, Syria, China on the other hand see ATS as an opportunity to feed conspiracy and anti-US sentiment amongst US citizenry.

The problem is much worse than you think. Keep going deeper within the rabbit hole. You will find that this is actually an all out attack on us on the scale of a global war, only this time it's more "stealth".

What is spoken within the OP is a tiny fraction of the grand puzzle.

KING: Hillary Clinton camp now paying online trolls to attack anyone who disparages her online


As head of the Correct The Record Super PAC for Hillary Clinton, David Brock has launched something called Barrier Breakers — an online mob of paid trolls designed to attack any and every person who says one cross word about Hillary Clinton on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, or elsewhere.



What's ugly is that we have no idea who these paid operatives are online. According to Correct The Record, many will be former reporters, PR executives, bloggers, and others. We have no idea if they truly say what they mean or mean what they say. Are they even using their actual identities? The Sanders campaign openly stated that they have never paid for any online comments.

Clinton’s Internet Troll Campaign Against Bernie Sanders Is A New Low



Correct the Record is run by David Brock, who has earned himself titles such as “right-wing political assassin, turned left-wing political assassin.” In 1992, he rose to infamy by viciously attacking Anita Hill, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s assistant who accused the judge of sexual harassment and lewd behavior.

In 2001, he confessed to lying and disavowed his disingenuous tactics. He explained he used, “virtually every derogatory and often contradictory allegation I had collected on Hill into the vituperative mix.”


”I demonized Democratic senators, their staffs, and Hill’s feminist supporters without ever interviewing any of them.”

Well, a bunch of Bernie Sanders Facebook groups got shut down yesterday (a day before a bunch of primary elections). Facebook will automatically shut down a group once enough complaints are sent. A large number of people must have been "reporting" these Bernie Sanders pages as explicit, pornagraphic or offensive for them to be taken down.

They were put back up, but the sheer number of people all coordinating at the same time, on so many different Sanders pages ... the night before a bunch of primaries?

Who has the motive and stands to gain from this? Who has the resources to organize something like this? Oh, gee I wonder who...?

Why Were Bernie Sanders Groups Removed From Facebook?



Numerous popular Bernie Sanders Facebook groups and pages were removed from the social media giant on Monday, causing hundreds of thousands of members to wonder exactly what was happening. The removals all began happening around the same time, with people wondering if the removals might originate from a PAC that supports a rival campaign or if it was just the work of unrelated trolls. What happened?



Screenshots have surfaced pointing to a possible coordinated attempt at “mass reporting” the Bernie Sanders pages for false violations. Kristen Fumarola shared with Bernie Sanders supporters a few screenshots of conversations between possible trolls on Facebook:
Bernie Sanders Reported



Some of the efforts stemmed from some individuals in a Facebook group called Bros4Hillary. In the group, one person made a public post that included a screenshot of the above photo with a comment that there was a “mole” in the group. The group then went private.

Hillary Clinton Trolls Shut Down Pro-Bernie Sanders Facebook Groups

Some of the biggest pro-Bernie Sanders groups on Facebook were briefly taken down Monday evening in a targeted attack by Hillary Clinton supporters.


There is at least one culprit to be found in Facebook user Casey Champagne, who bragged about taking down the pages in the pro-Hillary Clinton group BROS 4 HILLARY – #GiveEmHill — the pro-Clinton page was briefly taken down, but was restored on Tuesday.

champagne

Other Hillary Clinton fans were cheering on Champagne’s trolling, encouraging him to try to take down Bernie Sanders’ official Facebook page. Another Facebook user openly admitted that her husband frequently reported pro-Sanders posts on Facebook in hopes that they would be taken down, saying his success rate was “about 50/50 on a good day.”

Facebook user Robert Olivarez told Champagne, “You know they all can see this post?” Champagne cavalierly responded, “You know I don’t care?”

Why are grown adults concerned about what happens on Facebook?

because it's now the hangout of grown adults.

I guess because you are a grown adult you wouldn't of known that all the cool kids are over on snapchat.

Assuming you knew what snapchat was..... because you're a grown adult.

I've been adulting myself and I'm late at reading this thread.

However if people remember back in the Digg.com days. There used to be the bury brigade. Any political news that was disagreed with was buried to remove it from the front page of the website.

So it's totally possible that Hillary is using an old tactic or re-using someone elses psyop tactic. Or it's someone in the Trump camp settting this up to make it look like Hillary is responsible and to make her look bad.

Oh, that's sad if true.

I know what snapchat is. I see kids and adults alike taking selfies to use snapchat. Very narcissistic and annoying.

Perhaps I should apologize as social media is the things these days and I can't blame people for being part of it. ATS is about as much social media as I can do. If people want to socialize with me they have to knock on my door or pick up a phone.

Clinton's Internet Supporters, Allegedly Using Pornography, Shut Down Bernie Sanders' Largest Facebook Groups in Coordinated Attack


Last week, Correct The Record (CTR), David Brock’s super PAC that coordinates with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, announced that it was spending $1m on social media in an effort to combat Bernie Sanders’ online dominance. How, specifically? By paying trolls.

Last night, on the eve of five Democratic Primary elections—Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland—we may have seen this paid army in action. Several notable Bernie Sanders Facebook groups were taken down following a coordinated cyber attack by Clinton supporters, in which a number of users reported content on the pages simultaneously. According to US Uncut, “Facebook’s automated systems take note of how many individuals report a particular post, and if the post is reported enough, it will be taken down. This same process applies to groups, pages, and individual user accounts.”
