Step one. Mention the election, as soon as they open their mouths punch them in the dick! If they hit you back and tell you about how Hillary won the popular vote, and there is a petition online. They are a soulless troll. Feel free to publicly shame them for their anti-democratic ways, and remind them they are what's wrong with this country.


Could I interest you in a game of ROSHAMBO?

I'll go first.

Well, the Kremlin uses the FSB, SVD, and GRU units to develop and deploy online electronic armies. Alarmingly, they're using the FSB more and more outside of Russia (FSB is like our FBI). Putin is closer to the folks in the FSB, so he trusts them more and likes to use them when he can.

Hell, Russia spent 9 billion on propaganda over the Ukraine thing, a significant amount of that online (fake news stories, fake tweets, memes, facebook posts ect, ect).

Apparently in Russia during this election cycle one could make upwards of $700 USD a week online trolling/pro-Trump posting. Why not get paid to do what you probably would be doing anyway (sitting at a computer)?

Oh, they're around ... and they know who they are

That list the Op shared has been circulating the net for some time. It's not a Russian source that created it.

True. It's just infuriating that people think it's that easy to find a troll. Don't get me wrong though it's doable i am pretty sure but unless you're focusing on one person an ordinary person could do it but without training i am guessing it might be harder than what he said to do +soooooo much effort (well from my part anyways) Here to learn,inform enjoy myself and hopefully entertain. I don't get much pleasure of flat out mind F people but like a cat with yarn i might play
whatever

Well, no one pays me to be on here but if you look at my post history I do seem to have an "agenda".

I'm just a passionate person about a few core issues. *shrug* If someone started paying me and I had to do it? It wouldn't interest me anymore because it'd turn into a job.

And jobs suck. Well, mostly.

Eh, you can find them.

In any case, watch the MOVIE Troll Hunter, don't run around trying to hunt them unless you have mad skillz like moi.

Amazing movie:

Remember when the BP oil spill happened. Lots of new members signed up on ATS to protect, and basically troll all threads critical of British Petroleum. After the controversy died down, those members left never to post again.




I remember. BP can kiss my aSS.

Are you just drunk and lonely/bored?

You did start this thread. www.abovetopsecret.com...

Not judging you but if you are hangout in the social section for awhile or maybe another website until you sleep it off.

Feel free to stay or leave though.

Have a nice night CharlesT.

Someone should tell Trey and Matt you guessed their plot.

Not so much guessed but actually saw the episode. I just couldn't be bothered making a reference point. Now they can start a new thread in political mud pit about how Matt and Trey are un-American by supporting Hillary then Trump supporters can attack back saying they are because they're mocking Hillary...

Forums, Facebook, and media outlets like Reddit are loaded with bots that pretty much behave like trolls. This makes sliding and drifting much easier.

Here is another great article by Glen Greenwald on the reality of this:
theintercept.com...

This is much deeper than most are willing to accept and it does not just apply to the internet world.
