Paid Shills And Organised Trolls.
Feb 28, 2012

Almost ever since I've been on DPR I've seen everyone who posts something critical labelled as a "troll", even when they are actually pointing out something useful, and I've long been of the opinion the self-appointed troll-hunters were more than a bit bats.

Now we've just had a bizarre sub-thread spring up on the now-full Kirk Tuck thread suggesting the conference is full of paid Olympus shills!

That's more than a bit bats, that's completely Dagenham.

There are plenty of pros and semi-pros here with friendly links to Oly, but that's no secret.

Is there really anyone here, apart from the one participant, on whose mental 'elf I am not going to comment because it would probably get me banned, who seriously imagines there are "fake" personalities trotting around here paid by Oly or anyone else to say nice or nasty things about cameras?

And if Oly really want me to be nice about their poxy GX1-derived sensor, I'll take a 75mm f1.8 please. Ex demo would be fine
