Right, but wouldn't you say pro obama/ Saul alinsky (sp) threads are the same as pro Hilary..just wondering as an uncommitted observer. Well, sorry...I am not a supporter of hillary...but either way they seem the same

Yesterday I, of all people, made a pro-Hillary thread and it got 404'd.
Apparently they didn't like my provocative angle.
They should've kept it around for at least a little while though, if not simply for the sheer rarity of the occurrence.

You know, maybe there ARE "paid political trolls" here, but so what? Let them troll. I suggest that if you see brand new accounts being heavily political, that might be them. But the fact is, they aren't effective. It's a waste of money, just like those robocalls I get daily from Trump well after the primary. There is no objective evidence that any of these techniques sway voters in the least. It's just part of the farce. I get more irritated with people claiming they have some sort of special secret-sauce technique for identifying trolls than I do with trolls themselves.

Maybe they get paid by the stars and flags they get, since the point system hasn't existed for a long time.
For the record, my record shows I am clearly not on the pay roll.
