I'm sure there probably are people paid to post here and elsewhere, but I personally think the term gets thrown around way too much here. Many, myself included, have been called disinfo agents simply for posting and having a little bit of common sense. Disagreement with the OP is not a definitive sign of a disinfo agent, but some people seem to be a bit paranoid and think that it is.
As for whether they would come clean, I highly doubt it. Angry people in large groups can cause a lot of damage, and tend to go a bit crazy. If someone was a disinfo agent and then came clean about it, I can see an angry mob hunting that person down and causing them or their family harm. So if there are any here, and they have a few brain cells, they won't tell anyone that they are if only to keep themselves and their families safe.
BTW - yep there are a few posters I have never seen agree with any thread, no matter what it is about. They seem to be intent on shutting down the thread. So, when I see their posts, I simply disregard them.

It is my guess that these such people are pandered to to the point of feeling like they are part of the " elite " and as such are more important then the rest of us sheep . As such they may very well see the roll that the play as an important role in the betterment of our society .
What they don't release is that they too will suffer the same fait as the rest of us
