$3 million to be spent on ‘internet trolls’ as EU looks to 2014 election

Source: RT

The EU will spend more than $3 million on ‘troll monitors’ to trawl Eurosceptic debates on the internet ahead of European elections in June 2014, UK media reports. It comes amid fears that hostility against the EU is growing.

The new strategy will include “public opinion monitoring” to “identify at an early stage whether debates of a political nature among followers in social media and blogs have the potential to attract media and citizens’ interest,” according to internal documents reportedly discovered by the Telegraph.

"Particular attention needs to be paid to the countries that have experienced a surge in Euroscepticism," a confidential document said.

Napoleonic Short Dyck Poster,

Feel free to work out you small dyck issues by using my name all day.

I just wish that Sociopaths like you were not objectifying me all day as you masturbate to the fantasy you have created about me in your Diseased Mind.

Too bad we can't get Slew to troll on the EU boards. He would make senseless points for free for them, saving them money and us aggravation.

I am all for freedom of speech, I just wish yours had a few more IQ points behind it. While you are at it, maybe you can post some sources for your cut and paste plagiarism, giving the credit for your inane babble where it is due.

Ever notice when the liberals, who only argue with emotion anyway, actually get pushed into a corner, they pull out the Constitution? When it fits their style/arguement, they pull it like a gun (pun intened), otherwise they have no use for it!

How can that be dishonest? If it was you, then slewsie is correct. If it wasn't you, slewsie is still correct, according to your preferred source, the urban dictionary.

1. slewsie

An idiot, dolt, someone who talks incessantly about things they are completely wrong about.

Wow, that Rachel Maddow is a real slewsie.

or

Wow, that Rush Limbaugh is a real slewsie.
