What is a shill?
Every thread posted on this board comes under their "attack".

Every time someone disagrees with OP, everyone that agrees will yell "SHILL SHILL SHILL"

Every time OP posts some doom thread that the OP of an opposing thread, occasionally the OP of a series of opposing threads, mentions their beliefs, out comes the shilling.

So what is "shilling".

Shilling is a means to never be wrong. A means to dismiss an argument you cannot factually disprove, and may be better grounded than your own.

Shilling is your own ego fighting against the possibility that you are wrong, and may appear like a fool on a web forum that you (the owner of your image/forum name) have too much of an attachment to.

Every time I come here I see a forum, a place for ideas to come together and build or die through the combination of other ideas, which may or may not support them.

However since the rise of "shilling" something which hasn't existed here in its current form for too long, all I see is debates descending into madness.

Instead of being respectful of one and each others opinions whether contradictory or complimentary, posters have descended into a state of pseudo-schizo denial.

If someone makes an argument that seems rational and opposed to your own so many posters will yell "SHILL!", and if it continues all that will remain of this forum is posters being called shills by people accused of being shills by the person they called a shill, in an endless pointless never ending infinite loop.

Just because some one else's argument could disprove your own, please don't be so quick to discredit them as an individual with their own opinion by calling them that which we on the whole are opposed to, the manipulative government.

Embrace their ideas, try to refute them if you can, allow the knowledge of one other's to influence your own belief, because if you refuse to do this, madness is where you will lead and you will bring every one that believes in you on that path together.

Being wrong is never nice, it certainly doesn't feel as good as being right! If you want to be truly correct, being wrong and accepting that with good grace is a fundamentally required trait.

If you just want to appear right, and you're willing too use any logical fallacy to discredit anyone that challenges your righteousness, well, then you are no better than the powers at work which misinform the people on mass, in fact you are worse, as these organisations know the truth they are trying to hide.

So who are the actual shills?

More than likely the people that first put out this concept of being able to discredit any rationality with hate filled contempt, which we know as shilling.

Not everyone here with a contradictory opinion, is a governmental disinfo agent, if so why would every topic be shilled, surely those that remain shill free would be what the government wants you too believe.

Also if you just want to appear righteous all the time and resort to shilling you look like this - lala

That is all I wish to say thank you if you have taken the time to read it.

Let the shilling commence.

On GLP, a shill is anyone who disagrees with you.

Re: What is a shill?
Sarcasm is something I am very bad at recognising, so I will assume that the previous replies have been honest.

I do not want fame or glory so no medals for me thanks, however replies and ratings will go along way toward getting this message heard by as many people as possible, which I would be extremely grateful to witness.

Thanks again to those that have taken the time to read this, I really hope that it helps bring this forum to a more sensible avenue for discussion, so that we can all see clearly through the deceptions of the world we live in.

I think a shill is a person paid by the government and elites to spread disinformation and ridicule who is trying to tell the truth. It's easy to spot them.

Have a nice life.

The question was really a rhetorical. The thread more about the negative aspects of calling anyone and everyone you don't like a shill.

Re: What is a shill?
What an excellent post OP.

I always hope the shills, as you describe, are very young. Because if it were grown men and women - how pathetic is that? It's disturbing to think grownups would act this way.

I never knew it was defined as such, generally on GLP when a poster describes someone as a shill they are calling that person a government agent that is there to misinform. I'm using that definition, though it may be wrong.

You'd be surprised but its generally the more older, jaded though immature people that act in this egotistic manner, though that is generally a consequence of over exposure to our societies that breed messed up mentalities.
