calling all shills, it's a convention!

@luke975: I'm not sure that they're shills, just rather odd. To me, a shill is someone/some account that is set up to promote a particular site or, for that matter, to criticize a site. I'm seeing these names post on nearly every site/deal out here. Most of the comments make little sense, many are grammatically incorrect, some are just silly, but none seem to be affiliated with a particular site. the few I've checked haven't even posted any deals, just commented on those others have posted.

Hmmm. I suppose they could be doing lots of voting and commenting so they will be viewed as regular members when they DO start shilling, or something devious like that. Just not quite sure. Any thoughts?

@belyndag: yeah you are right about mainly promoting a particular deal, in my eyes a shill doesn't buy much, just comments. but thats not accurate i guess.
and you are definately right about grammar and being odd.
it's like some are posting as english is a second language. don't know. mostly only a few words per posting, jumbled into something that doesn't make sense.
and having so many post in one thread overloads my brain.
and that doesn't take much.

@belyndag: also, check out their join dates. all 4 or 5 with in the last 2 or 3 months. in one thread? it's a conspiracy.

@luke975: Conspiracy? I agree. Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
