    but I don't think they'd target ray. I think they'd target people like markos, meteor blades, front pagers, etc. And you've been here long enough to recall at least half dozen of those cases.

    Or more typically, they are here to torment dissension on an issue. Probably the best case that comes to mind was a view by some that AA support for Obama was monolithic. In comes a troll, actually a zombie, pretending to be a low income AA who posted diary after diary about how much she hated Obama and how Obama was screwing Black people. She got HR'd to hell, but didn't get banned because she got tremendous support for her diaries by many. In the end, she got outed as a pretty famous zombie here. I'm sure you know the case, and probably a few others.
