We would love some examples so we can stop it from happening or report it to the right people.  I certainly don't see it occurring around here...at least not blatantly or rampantly.

If a company was dumb enough to pay someone enough money to make it worth their while to post negatively or positively in order to affect a tiny proportion of the market then that is a marketing department that doesn't know how to spend its budget properly.  That type of ROI would be even more difficult to gauge than mainstream social media.

I'm sure it exists on some level almost everywhere on the internet but not in any quantity or with very much success.
