I have been hanging out here on the TH blogs for a while. Lately, I have noticed a marked increase of "troll posts" and irrelevant advertisements. Together, they seem to overwhelm the conversation, or at the very least clog up the current topics and thus, in a sense, disable any sane use of the medium.
I am not a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder WTF is going on. I wonder if there is not a "movement" to disrupt what has gone on here, for years, in terms of sane conversation.
"Money doesn't talk, it swears," and I wonder if this is not at the bottom of their motivation. Special interest money funding some of these bombastic folks? Or is it just ignorance? One thing is for sure - election day is coming soon - what better motivation for a Repug?
