No need to feed the trolls, there are a few now posting links to Wordpress sites, to generate ad revenue or get analytics on who follows, or just to frustrate and misinform but not to discuss, debate or enjoy a dialog. No need to feed the trolls.

A few with very similar opinions, writing styles, and close subscriber IDs. I bet you'll find they're posting from the same IP addresses (or dynamic ranges) too.

If only all sock puppets were as easy to spot (as a reader, the site owner has more tools available). What we learned from the HBGary leak years ago is that there are vendors out there selling commercial packages to allow one propagandeur to manage armies of sock puppets with believable and consistent social network backgrounds to make it difficult for even site owners (let alone readers) to tell what is actually going on.
