Whoa, let's back this up. A 'per post' basis? Are you telling me someone will actually pay me to troll weirdos on the Internet?

For the sake of argument....

Are you people so delusional that you think a "paid shill"(if there really is such a thing) would waste his/her time on a website that at BEST is considered LUNATIC FRINGE?

The moniker "shill" is used on this site when one poster makes a claim that usually has no basis in scientific reality, and is subsequently debunked by someone who knows what they're talking about.

It's the equivalent of saying "Nuh-uh, Mr. Poo-Poo head!"

To the Shills, for they are among us…


Jack and Shill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water.
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Shill got a check from the government.


Hey, diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the Shill was compensated on a per post basis.

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's Agencies and all the king's Shills
Couldn't keep protesters in the FREESPEECH ZONES.

Shill, be nimble,
Shill, be quick,
Shill, spouts disinformation
like a lunatic…
Shill jumped high
Shill jumped low
Shill bent over
and took it in the ass
from us regular Joe’s.


I realize there is not much as far as employment out there now, but there has got to be a more honorable way to make a buck.


Peace to you and yours out there…
 Quoting: ASLEEPNOMORE



Thank you Andrew Dice Shill. chuckle

Don't let it bother you bro, I have been called a shill a few times this week. Even tho I'm a computer tech... I wouldn't work for the government if they paid me triple what I can get on my own.
Just let is slide off your back, like water off a duck. I don't believe shills would be working here either, they make more money sending spam. LOL

this aint the 1950's....there is no 'illusion' or 'big lie'

the illusion actually now resides in those in power and in big agencies thinking that there is some sort of veil to maintain and implement.

there is none---now its really about being a bit dazzled on what exactly has to be done (on average--many people know exactly what are some simple policies that would fix things)...in truth, the illusion that any of this is 'delusional' or a 'lie' is long gone.

Its a failed excercise--completely different culture---completely different mindset---In fact, I dont think most people in power really know what is going on because if they did they'd likely resign before its too late.

 Quoting: justanotherguy



I guess the difference there is advertisers actually *get* something for their money. The problem with the hypothesis that the government is trying to marginalize and discredit you...is that they don't *need* to. Conspiracy theorists are already marginalized by their very actions and nature.

Feel free to test my hypothesis. Go up to random people in the mall, and start handing them pamphlets about how we're all being controlled by underground Reptilian aliens or that the sun is really a wormhole for aliens to use to stage an invasion against us, and try to engage them in a conversation about it. Take note of how they don't question the notion you just presented to them, politely take the pamphlet, and try to get away from you as fast as possible. This is them wanting to get away from the crazy person.

The only people you can convince of these things, are the ones who are already prone to believe it anyway. Aka other paranoid people.

The government has no need to silence conspiracy theorists because it's an entirely closed society. 'Normies' dismiss you without any assistance whatsoever.

And most importantly, for the many of us who are 'moderates', meaning we may believe in a shadow government or stuff like that, but think stuff like the devil being *actually involved* is simply ridiculous, we have a unique experience regarding 'shills'. Because if someone says my idea is crazy, I don't think they're a 'shill' because all I have to do is look over at the next that that *I* think is crazy, and realize that that guy thinks *I'm* a shill. So the guy debunking me is probably no different than me. Just a guy, who thinks an idea is stupid and crazy.

Whether or not you believe the government is trying to discredit you in Internet forums is one of the clearest signs of paranoid schizophrenia there is. The belief that someone is out to get you, combined with the belief that you are important enough for governments to be targeting you.

You go and tell that to ANY shrink in the world, and they will immediately start scribbling on their prescription pad. Not because they're 'with them' but because regardless of what you think is going on, there IS a disease called Paranoid Schizophrenia, and it DOES have very specific symptoms, and ARE expressing the classic, defining symptoms of that particular disease.

So maybe, just maybe...you can try to get a wrangle on your psyche and consider that just maybe there's a possibility that you aren't going to turn into a being of pure energy on Dec 21, 2012 and guide humanity to a new plane of existence through the wormhole in the sun. Or Whatever your particular flavor of 'I know all the secrets' herpaderp is.

I noticed you picked the most "out there" conspiracies you could imagine to test your hypothesis. Not very scientific of you.

The only reason "conspiracy theorist" is now synonymous with "crazy person" is because of the mainstream media doing exactly what you did above, and if you're going to tell me the media don't collude and try to one-side things due to them having masters then I won't have much respect for your opinions on much else.

History is full of conspiracies that were/are true.

Wall street sniveled, and whined.
I lost my house, my family, my car
I was to many payments behind!

Now I sleep in the park,
Eat in mission, and avoid the cops at all cost.
While Obama smiles, and lies to us all,
Promising "All is not lost"

What of the fate of 2008,
When Fannie, and Freddie, were schrewd?
AIG went bust, took a shit on us,
while all the mortgage holders got screwed!

Then Slithering Johnny stole all the money.
While MG Global got tagged.
They lied to congress, exempted themselves,
and left me holding the bag!

Now the bankers realize...we are waking up,
they are looking for some one to blame.
A short piece of rope, and strong tree branch,
We can end this whole crooked game!

 Quoting: Ponytailjones 12215240


no of course--all of this is the standard psychology--You cant convince people of what some on glp would consider the greater reality unless they already have experience with it (and that itself is a confirmation bias). And I wasnt at all inclined to think any 'government' was trying to censor until I actually EXPERIENCED things on glp and other comment sections where people were targeted (not me and not because they were talking about higher planes of existence, just criticizing government policies)--Personally, I dont think the government has that power--i just think activist groups or special interest groups try to 'herd' chatrooms or forums that are politically inclined, such as GLP (whichthey would see as the ahrd right), to a particular way of thinking.

Of course they dont need any convincing to do to discredit things like aliens--

However, glp does expose people to other ways of thinking that normally would not exist on say some big news network website, this could 'trigger' people into havign their own experience through reflection and others may not feel comfortable with a continued exposure to 'new' ideas--

but as far as your general assessment, you are right on--I do however think there are people, paid activists and so on ('sofa warriors' by some news article) that try to herd forums that they beleive are threatening to the status quo, and I would be SURPRISED if they are tied with government agencies.

The only people you can convince of these things, are the ones who are already prone to believe it anyway. Aka other paranoid people.

The government has no need to silence conspiracy theorists because it's an entirely closed society. 'Normies' dismiss you without any assistance whatsoever.

And most importantly, for the many of us who are 'moderates', meaning we may believe in a shadow government or stuff like that, but think stuff like the devil being *actually involved* is simply ridiculous, we have a unique experience regarding 'shills'. Because if someone says my idea is crazy, I don't think they're a 'shill' because all I have to do is look over at the next that that *I* think is crazy, and realize that that guy thinks *I'm* a shill. So the guy debunking me is probably no different than me. Just a guy, who thinks an idea is stupid and crazy.

Whether or not you believe the government is trying to discredit you in Internet forums is one of the clearest signs of paranoid schizophrenia there is. The belief that someone is out to get you, combined with the belief that you are important enough for governments to be targeting you.

You go and tell that to ANY shrink in the world, and they will immediately start scribbling on their prescription pad. Not because they're 'with them' but because regardless of what you think is going on, there IS a disease called Paranoid Schizophrenia, and it DOES have very specific symptoms, and ARE expressing the classic, defining symptoms of that particular disease.

So maybe, just maybe...you can try to get a wrangle on your psyche and consider that just maybe there's a possibility that you aren't going to turn into a being of pure energy on Dec 21, 2012 and guide humanity to a new plane of existence through the wormhole in the sun. Or Whatever your particular flavor of 'I know all the secrets' herpaderp is.

First off thank you for your input. I agree with alot of your post. Where we part ways is I do not think the shills are out to discredit me or are after me. I have not posted much of anything that is taboo here to warrant their attention.
But, I do see shills attack certain threads like iron to a magnet. Certain subjects get full shill attention it seems.
I also disagree with the paranoid schizophrenia paragraph. That is a weak point of argument you must admit. How is it you know the classic defining symptoms of this disease ? Apprrecaite your point of view. Try not to get to excited about this post. Put it out there for fun/pleasure,to try and bring a smile to a few people here.

Peace to you and yours

Re: This Thread is dedicated to all you SHILLS out there...
for example, the justice department pays certain departments of the aclu to discredit discrimination in all forms---many of these departments do not have any one overseeing them---given the amount of anti-obama rhetoric on this website, I dont think it would be irrational to assume many hard core leftists, especially those in unions and in the media--would try to discredit a website like glp who has a cohesive CULTURE that is prone to libertarian thinking--a different way of thinking.---this has ahppened many times with the drudge report and personal attacks on say, andrew breitbart, for his conservative viewpoints.

Re: This Thread is dedicated to all you SHILLS out there...
Feel free to test my hypothesis. Go up to random people in the mall, and start handing them pamphlets about how we're all being controlled by underground Reptilian aliens or that the sun is really a wormhole for aliens to use to stage an invasion against us, and try to engage them in a conversation about it. Take note of how they don't question the notion you just presented to them, politely take the pamphlet, and try to get away from you as fast as possible. This is them wanting to get away from the crazy person.

I noticed you picked the most "out there" conspiracies you could imagine to test your hypothesis. Not very scientific of you.

The only reason "conspiracy theorist" is now synonymous with "crazy person" is because of the mainstream media doing exactly what you did above, and if you're going to tell me the media don't collude and try to one-side things due to them having masters then I won't have much respect for your opinions on much else.

History is full of conspiracies that were/are true.
 Quoting: 13.0.0.0.0


Well the reason I used some of the crazier examples, is because usually the crazier the theory, the more the word 'shill' gets thrown around. The two go hand in hand, the deeper and more unlikely the conspiracy seems, the more sinister and all-encompassing the perceived information suppression is.

The crazy examples are a great way of illustrating to a moderate, just how closely his perceptions of his debunker mirror the perceptions of the person he is debunking. I mean, if that guy with the super-out-there idea is wrong about YOU being a shill, doesn't that open up the possibility that YOU may be wrong about the people YOU think are shills?

If it does open your mind to the possibility that your 'shill' is just a guy who thinks you're an idiot, your brain is working fine.
But all people you debunk are idiots, but all people who debunk you are shills, then your brain is malfunctioning.

The grand old duke of shill
he had ten thousand men
he marched them up to the top of the hill (the capitol)
and he marched them down again
and when they were up they were up
and when they were down they were down
and when they were only half way up
they were all shot dead by the guys on the steps with the armalites because you just don't run around like that there right?

Re: This Thread is dedicated to all you SHILLS out there...
also, on the topic of aliens, I PERSONALLY BELIEVE in the paranormal, and to say that this is automaticlaly fringe and so it doesnt need to be censored is too simplistic..

some ideas on glp can TRIGGER people into having their own experience, so assuming you beleive any of this crap to begin with, its not irrational to assume that someone...perhaps under the GUISE of a leftist organization, would try to 'herd' a forum away from those types of posts that could trigger people into greater self reflection (because it threatens the political process, if people start having more nuanced political discussions then people are harder to control)--new way of thinking--because it threatenes the status quo way of thinking--the more people know aobut psychology--even if it has nothing to do with aliens--the less inclined they are to be manipulalted and the more immune they are to cultural norms, the more they think for themselves (even if all this crap about aliens is complete bullshit) because they know themselves better, and by implicaiton, others..In any case, if you are a shill at least I gave you some information.
