What is a shill?
POLL: What is a shill?
 Someone who agrees with the "official" explanation.
 Someone who is skeptical of your favorite theory.
 Someone who is paid to steer threads.
 A sincere, useful idiot.
 Other (explain)
 Blank (View Results) 



The word is thrown around a lot, but I wonder if there's any agreed upon definition. Is a shill anyone who agrees with an "official" explanation? Someone who is skeptical of your favorite theory? Someone who is paid to steer a discussion in a certain direction? A useful idiot? Hmm, better make it a poll.

It's anyone who is paid to say something on a public forum.

But according to GLP, It's any Liberal or Democrat ><

Well, for example, I disagree with the "chemtrail" theory, and I've been called a shill on those threads for that reason. If there are any real shills on that topic, I wonder if they're being paid to post for or against it? That would be very telling for what the real agenda is.

Re: What is a shill?
Someone who visits forums like this one to make fun of people who believe that chemtrails are real, saying that his uncle has a high position in the army and therefore is absolutely certain that chemtrails are not real.

Re: What is a shill?
Shills are everywhere in our lives. The largest group of PAID shills is Hollywood and the Media. They complain that life is not fair and we need to distribute wealth, drive electric cars, and not be racists...

These clowns need to STFU.

Don't be surprised at all.

Check out this poll:

Thread: Do You Believe in Shills?

There are certain vocal types who DO throw out the accusation, but the forum on the whole knows precisely what a shill is. Lot of spin control going on with this board, and as much as I hate to say it, a huge majority are AC's. That's not to say there aren't some registered members with questionable posting histories as well.

Yeah, I got bored with it. You can lead a man to knowledge, but you can't make him think. I haven't been on GLP that often in general lately. I'm still in the Navy, coming off a LIMDU tour from foot surgery. I'll be back on a ship soon.
