Shills should be held criminally responsible for their actions

Shills should be punished according to the harm they cause. This may warrant jail time.

Shills are disgusting and should be executed on sight

Shills are just as evil as the scammers who pay/support them. They are a vile plague.

Shills should not be constrained or limited

Freedom of speech demands that people be allowed to express whatever they like. This includes ideas and opinions that reap financial or other benefits for themselves and their associates. There is also nothing wrong with being paid to disseminat... e someone else's point of view or agenda   more

Shills should be encouraged

Shills simply take advantage of the stupid. Anyone who would fall for their lies deserves what they get.

No one should be taking any forum or article comments as fact. Shills only have as much power as you give them. I've seen too many people paranoid about them and using it to dismiss any opposing opinions more than I've seen them actually cause harm.

It's funny, the people that accus me of being a shill, end up having shills on thee side (RT News, Anti-gmo blogs and many more).
