    Paid posters are nothing new. There are similar stories that Russia does it, and even Israel. I bet during elections we get more then our fair share of them. Still, it looks like they're more on news sites that allow people to voice their opinions on news then this one here. Not saying we don't have them, but that we're just lucky in terms of how many we do get.

    Do you have a link?

    And how can I convince Uncle Sam to pay me to post on behalf of my country? I'm doing it for free now...

    I would have do some searching back in time. Tomorrow

    I would not be surprised if Both Parties have paid hacks here and on other sites some sure seem to all over whatever topic is being pushed for that day. Note, if a site discovers you are a paid hack for any Party you will be banned for life, they take dim of being used and rightly so. The vast majority of us here do this for fun and because we done care about the Nation, I include even those I am often at odds with here in that group.

    George Soros pays .50 cents more than the chicoms for libs to derail a thread that exposes that Obama is the most corrupt and incompetent President in America's history.

    Back when the Politico use to have a community forum, starting around in 2009 you saw a bunch of new members and it was obvious that they were White House hacks trying to derail any thread that didn't support America's first African-American President. I think the White House recruited them from Move On.Org.

    There is one poster here that has racked up over 70,000-80,000 posts here under two names in a very short time, and nearly the same number on at least two other forums I know of, almost all of them defending Islamic terrorism of various flavors. I think most know who she is. She's either paid, a shut in who literally posts all day every day, or a sock used by shills working in shifts. I think I post a lot and spend too much time here, and I have less than 1,500. I can't imagine having 10,000 posts over sevral years, much less 18-20 times that number on three or four forumsunless I was getting paid. I would just start some blogs if I had that kind of free time.

    Ehhh....don't worry about it! LOL!!!

    A while back I ran into a new member who was pushing Iranian Islamic Revolution Propaganda and after about 3 posts I think after I replied they disapeared and have not been back since! LOL!!!

    I guess he or she....most likely a HE....didn't count on me knowing Farsi! LOL!!

    I think you might have seen that topic....as I was talking about how at one point a thousand years before European's even thought the world was round.....there were well designed and planned Cities in the Middle East that had GAS STREET LIGHTS and well working PLUMBING SYSTEMS!!

    Then came a much more radical form of Islam and Middle Eastern Society that back then had the very best Mathetaticians, Surgeons, Architects...etc....just went into a downward spiral back to almost STONE AGE CIVILIZATION!!

    There's plenty of Republican paid posters not sure if their computer programs or paid posters? I think everyone here remembers the paulbots who would just write "ron paul 2012" literally everywhere. But there's also people who post strange detailed arguments.

    Last week I read a recipe for lasagna online and theres one single post in the comment section someone posted a 1 paragraph rant about Obama and some new headline

    THANK YOU!!!

    Thank you for mentioning that!!

    I have visited topics in science and sports and out of nowhere some idiot posts how OBAMA is to blame from everything from why a persons CAKE FALLS IN THE OVEN.....to why it's Obama's fault that this sports team lost or how it's because of Obama that we have yet developed a Unified Field Theory!!!

    I did not vote for Obama but he is the ELECTED PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES....and whether you like him or hate him....the Office of the Presidency should hold RESPECT!!!

    I posted this before and even though I usually vote Republican as I am a Moderate Independent Voter from Massachusetts who is Fiscally Conservative and Socially Liberal....I have had a few members call me Left Wing and one member said I was lying and that I was actually an Obama Voter and Supporter.

    That member was right about one thing....I always support who ever is the elected U.S. President.

    To me, it's one thing to urge people to vote for a candidate but it's another to try to manipulate a conversation on behalf of a foreign power. My question is to what extent are China's trolls on these forums?

    So what you're telling me is that you have unconfirmed sources but expect me to believe them anyways?

    I feel the same way about people like Mitt Romney and Dick Cheney; Mitt doesn't keep his money in the U.S., and Uncle Dick's company is a Dubai company now. Clintons both favor Mexico and Red China and numerous other foreign countries over the U.S. economically, as do most major corporations. They should be registered as foreign agents, same as people who lobby for foreign interests are required to.

    I believe him. Do you have any sources showing he's not telling the truth?

    Can't prove a negative, but I can show you the OP's source that says that people will create multiple accounts to support each "other".

    I'm not, just pointing out one indication people can look for.

    And yes, that there was some 'Golden Age of Islam' myth is really ridiculous.

    Then why question someone's honesty for no reason? It's not like that sort of thing hasn't been covered by news stories before.

    That's not true because those threads derail themselves purely on the premise. Presidents of the past before 24 hours new and 24 hour eyes on the White House and Congress were far more corrupt simply because it was so much easier to be so. What we think is all this "new" corruption is simply the same corruption that always happened and we're just now hearing about it now because the media/internet vacuum requires a constant supply of drama.
