    Back in April 2016, a Hillary Clinton SuperPAC called 'Correct the Record' issued a press release blatantly informing the public they would be spending more than a million dollars to pay Clinton trolls and shills to "engage in online messaging both for Secretary Clinton and to push back against attackers on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Instagram."

    War Declared! Paid Clinton Trolls Working Overtime In Countdown To Election - Reddit Users Fight Back
    -------------------------------
    Nothing could be finer than to see American's rising up to these crooked, lying two faced morons who can't see the writing on the wall, who should be considered traitors of this Country. Everyone of these ass holes should be sent to a Country that is a dictatorship, maybe then they will see exactly what they are wanting America to be. Then again these are some pretty stupid ass holes.

    That's probably about a third of what Trump is paying his trolls here.

    People who are fighting for the truth don't need to be paid. The triumph of the truth is their main award.

    On the other hand, it requires a lot of money to hide the truth, but American taxpayers have been paying for that so far.

    no it's you douche.

    HOW TO SPOT INTERNET TROLLS/SHILLS

    Paid trolls/shills are not simply trolls that spam a comment section with advertising (RE: Jim the boot guy!), or with get rich schemes, yet they do use some of the tried and true tactics of regular trolls, which much to my surprise in researching Internet trolling, I found there are over 100 different types of trolling, a list put together by DARK PSYCHOLOGY.

    While I won't list all 100 types of trolling, I will highlight what has been noted in almost any type of forum that allows commenting, whether it is a website that allows comments like ANP, or Facebook posts which allow people to weigh in, or Twitter where they 140 characters to troll others, any format that allows interaction.

    A quick note before getting into the types of trolling: There is a difference between a troll and someone who just disagrees with something, it usually comes down to whether the behavior is noted about a particular topic or whether it is a pattern of behavior regarding a number of different topics. Don't assume someone is a troll because they simply have an opinion other than your own. Watch for patterns and mixture of types of trolling.

    The list below is a partial list of the top 18 types of trolling was put together by SMOSH, and includes the following:

    The Rabid Flamer: This guy likes to make trouble for his own amusement. If nothing particularly nasty is going on, he’ll whip out his flamethrower and burn everyone in his path, especially denizens of parenting or pets chat rooms.

    The Crybaby Troll: If someone says something mean to the Crybaby, she’ll become hysterical and swear she’s never coming back to the board. Of course, you’ll see her three days later when she slinks back for more abuse. The Crybaby often tells on you to the mods and swears she’s going to get you banned.

    The Never-Give-Up, Never-Surrender Troll: This troll is ALWAYS right and will battle to the death to prove it. There’s no point in trying to fight her. If she can’t back something up with reality, she’ll make something up, just to show you how wrong you are.

    The Self-Feeding Troll (AKA Sock-Puppets): This guy likes to argue, even when everyone else in the fo tells him he’s wrong. Without support from his nonexistent friends, he changes handles—or makes up new ones—to show the fo how loved he is.
