    If someone strongly believes in a cause, and they're not being paid, they're not a shill, they're simply making posts on the beliefs.

    Now suppose we take that same person, we observe their posts and offer to pay them to continue posting under a few guidelines that don't directly conflict with the posters views...is that person a shill? Seems that person is simply lucky, they get to do what they like and get paid for it.

    Be nice to Hillary Clinton online — or risk a confrontation with her super PAC
    This pro-Clinton super PAC is spending $1 million to 'correct' people online — and Redditors are outraged

    They are most likely not a shill.

    PPP is the "Pay Per Post" website PayPerPost used by advertisers and political organizations.

    O, most of those are here, (USMB is most gracious to them)

    in "The Trump Administration" thread in the Rubber Room.

    They make their post count and regular people go on about their business. :coffee:

    There are a few exceptions that make it out into where normal people are, but whatever. :dunno:

    It's quite easy to identify the left and right paid shills here simply by the zealousness of their posts, the streamlined content of the post and the relentlessness of the poster. Lakhota comes to mind immediately (leftie). The ones on the right tend to be "trolls" that are hired by lefties to make the right look exceptionally bad without being obvious that their a troll account.

    They make an average of 45k a year, not too bad huh?

    Digital Media Specialist Salary

    Imagine we can get paid 45k a year to troll the internet!

    Well now I know why my untitled links of Devin Kelley's facebook and LinkIn kept getting deleted by the authorities...12 deletions in 7 hours...had to repost a total of 14 times before the delete hammer didn't eliminate the URL link.
