from the BBC 2011.
interesting words, "inane comments"
so, the morons are on here, but late as usual with their
bogus intellect:

While the practice of flooding forums with fake comments is most widespread in China, where such posters are called the Internet Water Army, it is becoming common in other nations too.

The US military is known to use fakes to infiltrate chat forums to gather information about potential terror groups.

Similarly many Facebook pages are plagued by bogus friends and "social bots" that are used to stage debates.

Many marketing firms also seed forums with comments in a bid to create "viral" interest in a company or event.

However, fakes can be spotted by analysing their patterns of activity and the words they use, say the researchers.

Fakes are more likely to start new comment threads, make inane comments rather than add to a debate, and repeat former comments with minor changes, the study suggests.

The researchers say they are refining software tools to help website administrators tackle the "painful" problem.

There are known trolls on here who like to try to stir up trouble on a regular basis, but we can identify them. Now we've got a couple more who are ruining it for the regular and semi-regular posters. If everyone would ignore them and stick to using one username it'd be less of an issue; instead, many people on here constantly change usernames and whatever the topic of the thread in question ends up turning into name calling and childish insults.
Too stupid for words

Careful..you sound racist. Where is your white guilt ? Ever hear of white privilege ? Walk a mile in my shoes. Do you know the shame of hearing door locks shut when you walk by ? Look above you..you are a lemon and a white lightbulb. that's what people think of you. White people commit crimes too. There is also poor white people too. Mayor Tom and his step and fetchit chief of police do nothing but send evil cops to sit at the donut shops and shoot innocent bystanders. Stop me if you have heard this before.

I know. These whites do get offended. You hit the nail on the head. Like..what are they afraid of ? A few black people? Pretty stereotypical bunch.
