I know i am naive and not very analytical, like a cartoon character, but grifter is that post astroturf? /v/IAMA the last two posts this month have been from beefy and you. This sub is not very alive. When a new ama comes up from a person with a business, HERE where we get 1 fucking AMA a month, people generously upvoat it . Is he trying to get his business seen? Pretty fuckin clearly yea but he is also doing an AMA. Is he a shill for doing an AMA about his business? I guess thats up for debate but in my opinion nah not really. Let the fucking guy have his moment to do an AMA, if his shit sucks people will call him out. And whaddya know, people are calling him out for his answers and responses. It looked to me like they did the same on reddit too. Take a chill pill. Dont attribute malice to what can be equally attributed to stupidity. Instead of malice, you think he is astroturfing but i think hes just trying different ways to get his name out there. He is trying to do the ama, i dont see how that makes him a shill.

Also, why would he waste time astroturfing to the asshole of the internet when he could milk reddit like a cow with astroturfing? Thats what doesnt add up to me

I kinda have to agree, it's rare that we get people doing an AMA without an agenda.

Ever notice how on he site which shall not be named they only get actors, authors, when they have a movie or book coming out? It's basically one more stop on the press tour.

Hahahaha that hits the nail on the head exactly. Ol Reddit is basically a cork board and companies can pin their ads to it but the papers fall off every 12-24 hours so they just keep putting more and more up.

That doesn't mean that we have to let them without telling them to go fuck themselves.

Filling in content with spam is not an alternative.

Is he a shill for doing an AMA about his business?

Actually, that's the very definition of a shill now that you mention it.

Further, this sub is "Ask me anything", not "advertise your shit on Voat here for free."

I agree that the sub cant be filled with spam. The thread we are actually commenting on is the spam. The thing says ask me anything and the dude was asked anything. One person asked something about honey boo boo's moms twat and beefy fucking answered. He didnt say "BUY MY SHIT PLZ LOL" he actually answered different shit. It was a harmless ama by a person who owns a company. Those are the types of motherfuckers you oughta bounce a question off of.

Because advertisers are starting to notice this site.

I've been noticing more and more posts like this.

It isn't that the grifter is against astro-turf, intrinsically. It is that Voat is pro-Shit-Talk, intrinsically. Feel free to promote any product on here. Feel Free to have some asshole talk shit on it. That is the beauty of Voat.
