    "It's long been known that China employs legions of people to plant comments on the internet in support of the Chinese government. They're often called "Fifty Centers", since the state pays 50 Chinese cents for each pro-government message posted online."

    I think that's possible, which of course would be an absurd use of money. Spamming gay forums is no way to win guys to your cause.

    But in real life I've known some of these gay Republican evangelists who will gladly spend 14 hours a day posting, no paycheck required.

    I find the true believers even sadder than the paid trolls.

    Russia, too.

    Guardian (U.K.)The nondescript building has been identified as the headquarters of Russia’s “troll army”, where hundreds of paid bloggers work round the clock to flood Russian internet forums, social networks and the comments sections of western publications with remarks praising the president, Vladimir Putin, and raging at the depravity and injustice of the west.

    Yep. The ones who spend all day spamming attacks against Obama, Hillary, and Democrats in general. Apparently they have no other employment, regardless of their cover stories, and they aren't gay, either.

    Waiting for the counterattacks in 3...2...1...

    You gave me my first laugh of the day. The Chinese unit of currency is the yuan. It is not the ruble. That's the Russian currency unit.

    But to some here in the US ... Russia and China are sort of the same thing and no one could find them on a map anyway.

    Btw, 1/2 yuan (50 cents) is worth US $0.08. In China that's a lot. Makes one want to move there right?

    More like few, but then they also create many sock accounts which make them look like some.

    Folks, this is an example of the psychology of extremists as documented in the study linked below. As the study states, extremists can be of any political persuasion, but those here, and quoted, represent far left extremists.

    In their mind, almost everyone agrees with them, and when they see counter examples, they form a belief structure that supports their delusions. Specifically, they convince themselves that only a few can disagree with their viewpoint, and create the notion of, in terms here, socks to justify their beliefs. Even though no evidence exists, they convince themselves of their position even to the point of concocting evidence.

    Much has been written about the psychology of extremism, and these cases would be interesting subjects.

    Now the aforementioned link:

    Extremists more willing to share ideas / believe more people agree with them than is true

    I'm pretty sure you have to be able to read and write to be a troll.

    Art Deco knew that he was gay when he was 14---he had a crush on a teacher---

    Art Deco will tell you that he didn't know that he was gay and that he went gay all of a sudden.

    Art Deco is a fraud--



    I cannot recall him ever saying he didn't know he was gay and went gay "all of a sudden". I think you're making shit up again.

    I think we can be pretty sure he has been more honest about who he is than you - some anonymous troll - ever have.

    I believe it. When writing for my college newspaper, I wrote a story on the Beijing Olympics and made a joke about the Chinese government. I suddenly got literally thousands of negative comments, when usually nobody read my stories.

    He has said those things and more---

    How nice of you to post on behalf of Deco--are you doing it for free or is he paying you?



    Unlike you (who the fuck are you btw?), A_D generally makes a positive contribution to this site. While I may not always agree with him, I am happy to vouch for him, as are many other real people here.
