Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.

If you need help: Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

- 1 teaspoon of once glorious legacy (validator)
- A lot of soulless PR-oriented behaviour to ease in the players (the faux placater that pretends to listen)
- A truckload of astroturfers and for sale influencers (the distortion field generators)

and as we've all seen time and time again, paid shills rile up the brand loyalists, which in unison keep these shart products selling.

i wonder what % of gaming sub reddits are shill accounts? You know, like the twitter activist/reporter statistic.

More importantly: how many here are paid shills? Its getting harder to tell the difference. I don't remember it being this bad.

Anyone sticking for a company instead of his own/consumer interests is a shill. All white knights are shills either literally or in terms of being a lemming. Both are dangerous and should be ignored.

most modern shills weren't smart enough to get paid to do it. I assume y'all remember all the paid shill drama ~6 years ago? Forums attempted to force paid shills to put statements in their signatures that confirmed they were paid manipulators. Forum users then went on witch hunts when suspected for profit shills (high ranking AMD insiders, for example) didn't update their profiles.
