Your friend was right, you're good at writing fiction.

You should probably try writing a book.

I've seen a lot of your posts on various forums around ATS, the problem is, you consider near enough everyone who disagrees with you to be a shill or disinfo agent!


And you're not on your own.....I consider this whole shill thing to be vastly over hyped, and only ever used to counter someone with a differing opinion.

I did not make an accusation that I was an internet shill, nor do i make an extraordinary claim that involves this. If i worked for area 51 sure i would post a copy of it. But this guy is saying he was paid shill.Lets see some proof of it. Why should I post anything? I did not make any claims.

This post is very similar to this post a few months ago:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I believe there are people out there that do exactly that.. I've been saying it for years.

Not buying it. I'm sure there are paid shills ... and those who shill for free because they bought into something bigtime ... but your story just isnt' cutting it with me. And, considering I'm a paranoid conspiracist that's saying a lot. Sorry.

"I thought it was obvious there are shills on here?"


From what I have read in the T&C Guidelines I assume that paid shills are here with the blessing of the board owner. I surmise that they are getting paid for the shills to be here like they are getting paid to post the ads on the sides. Both are meant to sell a product be it Obama, Israel or an acceptance of Police Brutality.

Why do you think they don't have an ignore function anymore? So you have to read the shills message.

Either way dude even if you are doing the opposite and posting disinformation are you ready for the unwanted attention this is going to visit on you both good and bad or is that the opposite also where attention is lavished on the people you u2u hmmm me smells a paradox, oh the irony oh suits you sir, oh oh.

This thread reminds me of a programme that was run in the U.K. a few years back.

It was called "Jackanory"

Whether this is all 100% true or not (I'm leaning toward it being conspiracy theory fanfiction) - it's fascinating to have already seen much of the shill strategies you mentioned being employed here on ATS.


It seems very feasible to me- there have been a couple of articles published in the last few months about the FEDs outsourcing net surveillance. There's no reason to think private parties wouldn't outsource for their public opinion engineering needs.

And there are thousands of ex-tech support workers (many among them holding an absolutely worthless English degree) wandering around, pasty from an all-ramen diet. Malnutrition has a deleterious effect upon one's ethics.


ETA: On second thought OP, why run the 'business' out of a seedy building and continually change the name of the company? Is there something illegal about posting biased, well-researched, and often aggressive rhetoric on the internet?


Nothing illegal, per se. Unless one indulges in some light slander. But very possibly embarrassing to the client, should it ever be traced back to them.


Millions of people do it for free. Are they just trying to avoid paying taxes?


The client's privacy is of paramount importance.

That line you just used(and variations of it) is actually the No.1 defense used by the real shills.. (Taken straight from the shills handbook) and is the first thing they learn to use in order to "ridicule" the perceptive and fool the gullible...

Just a heads up, since if you are not a shill.... you might not want to use that line again (although i have seen others use that exact line on this site as well..)


If you buy into the whole paid shill thing, isn't your response going to be the No. 2 defense as a way of making yourself seem righteous, just like calling anyone who disagrees with your opinion a shill would probably be number 3?

True or not, this site as a lot of freelance shills lol
This thread is starting to look like an Agatha Christie novel


Given all the evidence....the killer is in this room right now! (DUN....DUnn...Dunnnnnn!)

The whole thread seems like an example of reverse psychology ,
a fictional story that is easily demounted by all the other members leading to an overall subconscious feeling that "shills " are not real

it's also very convenient that the Op never makes another reply or send any links to his disinfo posts, also convenient is that he's not from ats just like all the other threads about shills in here , meaning we're not able to actually verify his posts and thus building up the the over-all "it's just fiction" feeling,

now don't get me wrong i belive the story to be complete fantasy, but only because you were meant to perceive it like that
shills and disinfo are just as real as daylight

making more than just one thread in similar fashion is classical cointel strategy ,
make as many threads as you can with made-up stories in a similar fashion so that if someone does decide to spill the beans he'll get minimum attention or none at all
