What exactly is a shill? From what I read it's someone who gets paid to post things? I've been called this a couple times because my accounts relatively new. Also why do people care about points? I mean what's the point of?

Yeah, that's the base of it. Somebody paid to post something.

Also, they care about points because it hides them better when dealing with new people. Camouflage to mess with newbs. Then you have the ability to downvoat. The easiest method of getting your point to the top is to knock out anybody who has a counter point. Easier then making your own point solid and something people care about.

I see. I've never really paid attention to how the points work on this site. So the number of points you have determines where your comment will sit on the page, got it. What's the point of a shill though to try to sway opinion? Who would pay these people?

Around here a 'shill' is someone who disagrees with you.

No, not necessarily.

But the Internet "shilling problem" is very real now, and it's on every site. Our globalist "betters" have taken it upon themselves to subvert every major Internet site there is, and they are OBSESSED with it.

It's hard for normal people to comprehend this, because normal people don't think this way.

That's exactly what I found to be true. I think it's funny because it's the same mentality as the Liberals calling everyone a Nazi who happens to have a different opinion than them. Same type of people.
