Does it also pay "trolls" to disrupt civil debate in the comment sections of conservative websites?

Absolutely.
Fortunately, there are way too many veteran freepers for them to last too long here. They get boxed in and sniffed out pretty quickly. And remember, they also use a version of the "Diamond Technique" here and on other sites, where two or more trolls "agree" with each other and actually manage to shout down the unsuspecting.

Bottom line: Veteran freepers, do not be bashful about calling out the scumbags. And the "sign up" date, while being helpful, is not always a telltale sign. Some trolls signed up long, long ago.

I myself signed up on Democrat Underground when it first started just so nobody else there would take my handle. A few years later I went back to check it out (I think for Schadenfreude purposes), laughed at the big topic of the day (have no recollection what it was) and posted three posts before I got "tombstoned". One poster there said, "Wow. You signed up five years ago just to get thrown out now?" Of course, I didn't bother to hide my dsitain for those animals.

There was a thread on FR Just before the last election about this. Don’t have any idea how to find it.

There’s one here, an August sign-up, who’s quick to defend homosexuals, and who’s been pushing his pro-queer candidate for governor of Virginia. Other Freepers have pegged him as a retread.....they’ve been here a lot longer than I, so I would defer to their opinion. Is he a paid troll? Don’t know....could be. The pro-queer gubernatorial candidate (Libertarian) could be a stalking horse for the Democrat.

You can’t really experience FR properly until you’ve been called a troll by somebody.

LOL!
A couple of days ago I followed a link here to the Canadian version of FR - - it's called Free Dominion - - made one post and was immediately called out as a "troll"! It took me awhile to figure out what that was about and I finally figured it was because in my post I referred to a scumbag named Richard Warman as "that scumbag Warman". The poster got scared that Warman might sue Free Dominion (again) and figured my post would give him an opening!

They have real issues with free speech up there in Canada, eh?

“They have real issues with free speech up there in Canada, eh?”

They sure do. Can’t understand why they don’t just structure their affairs to incorporate outside of Canada, make use of offshore servers, and quit worrying about it.

That was basically what my post asked about. And I added something like, "out of reach of that scumbag Warman". That got some nervous Nellie calling me a "troll", lol.

I thought it was well known that ObamaCare was hiring people to promote and shill for their master?

Mr. Gobbles would be proud of the Lame Stream Media today.

But to be frank it hasn't changed since the 30's.

The Bastard Walter Durante won a Pulitzer (and still hangs in the NYT office) for this "Can't make an Omelet without breaking some eggs" Story about the Starvation in the Ukraine.

I posted about Warman too but I noted that my comment was not from Free Dominion or its founders but my own opinion and left my real name and address.

lol

But you still want gov’t health insurance, right? That’s why you get flak. Gov’t has no business providing insurance of any sort. Standards maybe. Interstate rules, maybe. But so far we can’t even get tort reform, especially from demos. If we can’t get the lawyers out of health care then it will never be “cheap”.

It goes back before the 30s even. The Creel Commission (Committee on Public Information) was named after and run by George Creel who was a labor leader and newspaper man.

I’m sure you know about the crowd manipulation methods used by Edward Bernays.

That's pretty funny!

Apparently the problem for the site's owners ("Fournier", I believe is their name) is that they can locate their site and servers wherever they want, but as long as they, the owners, are Canadian residents they can be targeted by speech Nazi scumbags like Warman and get screwed by Canadian judges, most of whom seem to share the same, uh, "philosphical bent" as Warman.

Go away.
There was nothing wrong with healthcare.

Instant Celebrity Obamacare Applicant Turns Out To Be OFA Volunteer, President Of “Young Democrats” Group… Update: Chad Thinks He Texts With Jay Carney

 

By Weasel Zippers

Update to this story.

Oopsie, turns out that lucky guy Chad’s social media info reveals he “volunteers” for Obama’s “Organizing For America” , he’s President of “Walker County Young Democrats”, and his Facebook says he is paid to “promote for an advocacy group”, a comment he now says was a “joke”.
