I've read some accusations that some posts are made by paid employees. Any discussion?

I figure, with freedom of speech, we could negotiate. How much do you have?

I'd like to know who would be foolish enough to pay anyone to post, on Topix forum especially?

Astroturfing certainly goes on. The question is, does it go on here.

Questions for you, outstanding for a couple of years, at least.
What are your scientific qualifications?
Are you a professional scientist, as opposed to the amateur variety?
What is your specialised field of science?
How closely allied to climate science is your specialised field?

You regularly accuse others of ignorance, so prove why you should be heard above the rest?

That can't be a question, there's no question mark.

Stop repeating yourself, it's childish.
I've been noting your refusal to answer my questions for years now.

Does not being paid give integrity? Not answering the question is certain to be true, so does that add more integrity than a denial? If I denied being paid, would I be believed?

Why is this an issue, if I was paid or not, it wouldn't change the truth of a single letter I've ever posted.

The question that interests me, what's your best offer?

In the likes of FuGyou, Norfie and company, we're witness to the real behaviour of internet cranks.
I've been asking FuG about his qualifications for some years now, but he simply ignores or evades replying, I don't recall accusing him of 'refusing' to answer as he does.
What he expects to gain from his childish game is anyone's guess, I doubt that anyone other than maybe litesout is impressed by his antics.

True, I one of the reasons I started this thread was to bait "the green troll". It worked, I'm happy.

No takers? If you make an offer by 2300 GMT, I'll give you a discount.

The only person who really ever asks is fair game and only when he has run out of everything else.

LOL, have you bothered to look for someone to pay you to post and do you really need an extra few cents per day?
Since Fuggy initially raised the subject, I've tried to imagine what the pay would be per post, but can't believe it would be worth considering.
A google search found this:
http://www.google.es/search...
Personally, I haven't needed to make a penny since I retired in 1988, in fact the latest item on my bucket list is to spend some of the money that I don't know what to do with.
Any suggestions?

Thanks for linking back to my thread; it proves motive supersede conclusion in the minds of believers.

What if you were paid to post the truth from your experience, education and human need? Does that make falsehood out of truth? Isn't this just ad hom accusations?

Cheap old bastards, posting for free! Killing the market with sincerity.
