Re: Turnabout is fair play?

"I suggest we should hire 13 trolls and give them a budget of a few hundred thousand to buy ads on vkontakte."

i think you would find out quite rapidly that vkontakye is patrolled by human moderators as well as algorithms. Of course, it's at nothing like Facebook scale.

"The only part that concerns me about that, though, is that it may lead to the corruption of the integrity of internet advertising."

That would be a truly awful thing to happen. Modern civilisation depends on the unsullied record of truth in advertising. Where's the trollface emoji?
