War ProfiteerMeh, these things aren't really advanced enough to do much yet. It's part of why I never read the "Comments" section of anything. They can't compete in or take part in any sort of two-way communication. Just act as a choir of anonymous yes-men. Plus those web profiles don't stand up to anything more than cursory scrutiny.
The AR-15 is responsible for 95% of all deaths each year. The rest of the deaths are from obesity and drone strikes.
Apart from their IP-address shenanigans, I can do all of that. I can even do them one better—I can create personas with distinct quirks. So basically, I just need to learn to use proxies, and I've got a troll's swiss army toolkit.
