    I agree it would be a waste, and I hope no one is actually being paid to do such with my tax dollars.

    With regards to the algorithms, someone could decide to put someone on here to influence debate, or to provide support to those whose point of view they want to put forward, or to smear those that they want to put down. But that would also be a waste as well.

    Wht would they need to? They can just dessiminate it through Fox or MSNBC and the faitfull servants of das parties will repeat it for them for free, and even advocate for it passionately.
    If I blow the conch and they don't come back; then we've had it. We shan't keep the fire going. We'll be like animals. We'll never be rescued.

    Maybe, yet there may be DP posters posing as government agents too.

    You can be paid for posting on DP? Where do I get one of these cushy government jobs?
