They do seem to be soooooooooooo slavishly transparent, however.

It is usually possible . . . after a minimum of boilerplate posts . . . to see the avatar and note to scroll on by.

I go by the system, if their registration is less than a year old, ignore them!

I have noticed, and as this threads proves there are many other ATS members who noticed the same thing.

Oh I've seen a number. If you are involving yourself in American politics and discussing American politics and your position is continuously leftist, what else could it possible be?...



What else could what possibly be????

Being a Hillary Supporter???


Bingo.

I do not care if there are paid political trolls working for the democrats here on ATS.

I will correct and debate them anytime just like i do the global warmers and other groups here on ATS.
But if they think they can change my mind without proof that can not be countered forget it.

I do know how to do research on the internet because i am a volunteer researcher for veterans medical problems

Its only when someone tries to block my free speech rights that i will get mad.

It's silly to think people need to be paid to blindly follow their beliefs.

It's silly to think it's a conspiracy to infiltrate a conspiracy site with shills.

It's silly to think political blinders need to have monetary gain attached.

It's all just silly when you think about it.

Maybe it's just me.

Bingo.


Just being on the left doesn't make someone a Hillary Supporter. There are lot's of people on the left who don't like her. Plus back before she won the primary you could be on the left and support Sanders.

But there are also many on the left who do supporter too. But I'd guess it's more of the Insiders on the left rather than the people on the left in general.

Hell, it's not easy finding a Pro-Hillary person in the wild either from what I've seen.

You're obviously not around the military much. Every blonde haired female officer is a Hillary supporter. It's effing pathetic. I have lost whatever marginal amount of faith I had in female leadership of the military kind.

Well all it is doing to the likes of us non USA members is putting us off from visiting ATS.

I find the debacle that you call the US election very off putting. There is so much blind hate and division among you guys.


This is so valid, it seems the US is a tinderbox at the moment.
It seems like these two candidates and their minions are just inspiring division, anger and blind hate

This happens every four years. Get used to it.

First and third are not required, the second does not need indicate specific targeting.

Basically what can happen is an additional layer of recontextualization. It's not silly to see the technology exists, and will persists. There's no good reason to think paid shills are not only here, but in all large online communities backed by a variety of interests.

Really??? Huh. I never even thought about that demographic actually.

Not too shocking though really. I imagine there are lots of Females who will voter for her simply because she's a woman and can be the first woman POTUS. I'll bet some women out there who don't even like her will still voter for her because of that alone.

Just having a woman POTUS while they're alive to see it is Historic. Not that it's a good reason. As I've said before, Having a Walrus for POTUS is Historic too. But doesn't make it a good choice.

Yeah I know this. I just wanted to know if you'd follow up which you did...AND, technically now it doesn't matter. She's the only one in the race so any vague leftist talk leaves one to think so even if they insist otherwise. The rare exceptions are the Bernie supporters who are sitting this one out...and HEY- it's still not November..you never know what might happen until then...

Wow, did you guys create a thread just FOR ME!!


No, seriously...

I'm NOT voting for Hillary. But I'm also NOT voting for Trump. I have not yet decided.

I have been on ATS (not as member) for about 2 years. I saw there was a NEED for more contrasting views...I don't have much time in my day (it's late here, but I am a night owel) ... I travel a lot and don't always have TIME ...

Trump is just to darn easy ... don't worry...I shall still be here after the election! Maybe even with NEW avatar after I figure out how to make it BIG like some of the ones I see!

Well, maybe that's why I don't remember seeing many Pro-Hillary Threads around here then if they're getting removed before they have a chance to take off.

Out of curiosity what was it about that got it trashed??

Well, I can only speculate as I didn't ask (I saw no need to poke the bear), but the angle I took was that I wanted Clinton elected so we can get this gun-grab hoo-ha over with.

We know she wants the guns so let's just go ahead and let her be president so she can try.

It's not any more incendiary than a thousand other threads saying essentially the same thing over the years.

Maybe it was for my protection? They didn't want me "Clintoned" while jogging near the local canal?

Who knows. It did seem like selective enforcement of the rules, though.

Maybe they just don't like me.

Dear Sausage King. Yes I noticed, and sad to say I've started trolling back. I'm sure ATS staff is
Tired of me as of late.
I can't find one of the best THREADS EVER! When SkepticOverlord took on a Dooms Day Prepper. The guy claimed to have taken his family into the bunker. He claimed to have also put porn videos in the bunker to watch with his family.... ewww.
SkepticOverlord ask repeatedly to have a live Skype and then laid into the Doomsday Pervert.
This needs to happen more often👍

I'm paying more attention to the sign up dates lately. And I pay no mind.
( that's a lie... I did bother the staff ) but after that "No stars"

Yeah. Well as a Sanders supporter myself I think it's pretty clear that aside from a criminal charge against her being announced, it's not gonna happen for Old Bern-doggy. Hillary has it locked now as far as the system is concerned and she's going against Trump.

Bernie still proved a point and I think woke up a lot of people, especially the younger generation. He did better than anyone thought and against all odds. But it seems that he may be just a bit too early on starting that Revolution just yet.

But he certainly got the seed of it planted. We'll just have to see how many take root.

I was looking forward to Bernie getting the nomination. I have a Charlie Sheen shirt that says, "WINNING" I was going to wear when he won.

Sad day when he lost in California. Now I am unsure where my vote lies. I don't want either. I feel like I am at an eatery and everything on the menu I am allergic to. One will give me hives! The other will make me swell up!
