That's right, it's everyone's favorite new tactic: Just call the opposition trolls, shills, and MSM puppets

Do you want to be an internet sleuth? Do you want to shut down your opposition? Cannot formulate an intelligent thought with facts and logic to debate your opponent? Don't worry we have the solution for you in just 3 easy steps!

1. Make a wild ass conspiracy. Make sure its outlandishly stupid and post it, preferably in the mud pit.

2. Wait for intellectual opponent to make argument against your theory.

3. Hit that quote button and type "LULZ Trollololol", "your just MSM shill", "I won't feed your trolling anymore" or some other snarky comment (be creative) BUT DO NOT TRY TO USE FACTS OR LOGIC TO ARGUE. USE EMOTION!!!!

BUT WAIT! There's more! Want to go the extra mile? Want to up your star count? Follow these 3 easy steps for a bonus!

1. Go to Google, find a dank meme.

2. Upload to ATS.

3. Post it!!

Example:



By following these easy steps you no longer have to use your brain to spread ridiculous conspiracies that have no basis in truth! Just state your claim, and LOL at all the trolls and MSM whores! No need to try and convince people using logic, just make it so unbelievable that it BECOMES believable! And don't feed the trolls.

And remember, anyone who doesn't think like you, well, they're just a shill.

DISCLAIMER:
OP is not responsible for your diminished brain capacity as a result of reduced critical thinking. You yourself may become a troll, if trolling last longer than 4 hours, seek medical attention. By using these steps you agree you are an imbecile. Results may vary. Void where prohibited.

If the shoe fits...


Seriously, sometimes troll or shill fits. Most of the time it's just as you say, but it's certainly not a new tactic.

This is very old news. Here is a great thread devoted to the issue:

I don’t find dank memes...I usually make them.

But seriously. Mud belongs in the Mudpit (which this is) but directly attacking members personally isn’t condoned. “Shill” is a fast track to a removed post (if noticed or reported because we honestly do not read everything—but we read quite a bit). Too many “shill removals” typically escalates to posting bans or permanent bans.

I’ll advocated the slam reply against yourself remains though:
1) because you deserved it
2) you should wear it.

PS completely off topic but your Popeye avatar made me think of it, I have a friend that lives in Malta not far from where Robin Williams did the live action movie all those years ago........The town they built for it is still standing right there on the water.......

Kinda neat

I know you guys do. People just say it in a very round about way now. Especially when they can't back up their claims. Thanks for letting me keep my self-punk!
