Those posts look like they were written by a dumb kid trying to stir up trouble because they are butthurt the site is mostly conservative.

I suppose it is summer break, so you may be right. Either way, my shillometer went off - if it turns out it needs recalibration, I'll be sure to do so.

That proper English, though...

The titles definitely don't match the comments they are making. So perhaps they are deliberately writing those titles that way to attract attention.

How do you know the new accounts are shills? Not trying to stir shit up, genuinely curious.

You have the option of betting your entire life's savings on whether or not those two are shills, which do you put your money on?

I don't gamble, on principle. And that doesn't answer my question. How do you know they're shills.

FTR: Its not me downvoating you.

Proper, or at least significantly higher level grammar/punctuation than the average internet denizen.

Damn, I am exposed now.

I'm not saying that Voat doesn't have people that type proper English, but usually trolls, out for the lulz, do not, and shills almost invariably do.

Same. Guess I'll go hide under a digital rock.

Or watch that "Mr. Robot" show a lot of people are praising.

Use the full name of whomever they're shilling for like "Hillary Clinton"

To me this is the biggest tip off of the bunch because it implies a "branding requirement" for their posts. (Same thing for "Donald Trump"). (The only time that this doesn't jump out is if someone is discussing a 3rd party like "Gary Johnson".)

I guess I mean sans cussing and personal attacks and quips about my mother, etc.

I think they're jut trolls who wanted to get reactions out of people. Didn't some moderator shitpost here about not feeding them? Don't do it man.

They may just be trolls, and I could be wrong.

Don't recall a mod saying that here. If so, I apologize for my faux pas.

Regardless,

This sub is for documenting the attempts to drag Voat down into the mud by various censorship, advertising or shilling groups.

Is on the sidebar. This event seemed blatant enough to point out.
