    Some of them are so obviously paid shills and whores it isn't even funny.  They tend to post diaries or links to stories without attribution, repeat-post day after day when they've got a sad, pathetic axe to grind, are MOSTLY illiterate, hostile, stupid, and behave like bullies.  If you call out their bullshit they whine about civility and rules.

    This doesn't hurt anyone except assholes.

      There are indeed a lot of shills out there, but I would guess the illiterate ones are the real thing, the people duped by the shills.

      Unless of course they've decided that spelling mistakes makes them seem authentic, and it's worth taking the hit for being illiterate-- that would work in some forums, I suppose.
