IN REF TO TRINS PINNED THREAD ABOUT SHILLS-FIRST HERE IS A DEFINITION OF A SHILL
As many dunno what a shill is and if i was to post this in that thread it would never be seen as 90% of people dont read but the 1st thru the 3rd reply,(s) to a thread from what i have seen here at glp and other sites for years so on w/the definition of a "shill"

Shill
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services or a political group, who pretends no association to the seller/group and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage others unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services or support the political group's ideological claims. Shills are often employed by confidence artists. The term plant is also used.

Shilling is illegal in many circumstances and in many jurisdictions[1] because of the frequently fraudulent and damaging character of their actions. However, if a shill does not place uninformed parties at a risk of loss, but merely generates "buzz", the shill's actions may be legal. For example, a person planted in an audience to laugh and applaud when desired (see claque), or to participate in on-stage activities as a "random member of the audience", is a type of legal shill.

"Shill" can also be used pejoratively to describe a critic who appears either all-too-eager to heap glowing praise upon mediocre offerings, or who acts as an apologist for glaring flaws. In this sense, they would be an implicit "shill" for the industry at large, possibly because their income is tied to its prosperity

Billy Mays is an excellent example of a shill.

Don't forget the poker shills..even though most use their own money say at a certain casino in Los Angeles or an online game, they still are shills and have to open up tables, keep games going and be nice...some only get rakeback, which anyone can get anyway, but if you go through a company that sends you into games and out of games you get a higher percentage...some even if you were not in the hand..YAY!

Shills of the government, political system, education system and even some business is different for each case or person I would think. I mean lobbyists are for sure shills. However, the person in the audience that says, "I'll take one" first to try to motivate the others to buy the snake oil potion or whatever can be considered good and bad too pending on how you view things.

I'm a little confused about the pinned thread.

How do you have a conspiracy site without shills, agendas and troll activity? It is all part of the conspiracy.

There is some real good info that comes on this site and the breaking news this site is hard to beat. Not sure what the problem is.

There are seemingly shills for the phone company. they must contract out to internet commandos to defend against their radiation devices.

They even created "internet magazines" where they shill for these phone companies and such, the largest being snopes.com, but not the only one.

Re: IN REF TO TRINS PINNED THREAD ABOUT SHILLS-FIRST HERE IS A DEFINITION OF A SHILL
bump for a good initiative.

IMO there is an important difference between what we could call "true shills" per the suggested definition in the OP, and the "uninformed tools" that may look like shills to some people with opposing views.

The problem is how can you determine who is what unless you are able to look inside the mind of people, see what are their true intents?

Maybe some kind of elaborate intelligence operation could indicate the organized scheming for political or economical gain that would define a "true shill" but it doesn't seem feasible at a forum like this.

It should be noted that a forum like this could make a big difference with respect to the latter group by letting “them” participate in a free and open debate; informing, getting informed, testing arguments and standpoints. I said “them” but actually mean most people living in democratic societies, believing in free speech and open debate as means of social progress in a society.

Therefore I hope the current "shill-hunt" is carried out with utmost care, otherwise it is destined to make more harm than good I'm afraid.

/L

PS. I'm still banned for some unknown reason, and I'm certainly not a shill. Some might see me as a “tool” just as I see some “tools” posting here, so be it.

I really think this merits a discussion since people are in fact banned for being "shills". Those of you who are not banned might think all is fine and dandy… but the very least you could ask for is how a "shill" would be defined at this place so that you can avoid being banned yourself.

/L

PS. Still banned despite emailing admin right after the above post to sort out any problems they might have. Still awaiting explanations and action to correct the mistake.
