I notice that the meaning of the term 'shill' is now changing, from a (paid) propaganda pusher to someone who supports a particular set of causes.Quoting: Taruwah
An example is on one of the 'assult rifle' threads where TG4 is accused of being a shill because of the Israel flag on her avatar.
As the originator of the thread, she can hardly be a shill.
Inventions like this are not really in any of our interest because the idea of the website is to express free speech, calling posters that one disagrees with, 'a shill', runs counter to free speech (although using 'free speech' to do it).
We need to coin a phrase to describe the sort of posts on GLP which seek to undermine the great privilege we have of freely expressing ourselves on GLP.
Let us defend our own first amendment.
We could use a term like 'gagger' but I am sure there are better.
If this post doesnt scream "HEY GUYS! IM A FUCKING SHILL!"
My name isnt BARACK HUSSEIN OSAMA JOE BIDEN
