I'm a mod on a FB fishing group that is about 5k members and growing. Yeah I know FB is cancer but I've gotten an enormous amount of value/info out of that group and generally I love reading what people post about local fishing stuff. That said, as it's grown, the dumbfuckery is predictably increasing. If someone posts ANY article that remotely talks about possible environmental impacts (no matter how neutral or specifically fishing-related, which is all we allow), a group of asshats always comes out talking about how scientists can't be trusted, it's all scams to keep govt. jerbs funded, oceans are just fine thank you very much, etc. etc. I always assumed these are just dumbshit trump supporters feeling empowered in our new age of idiocy, but the speed and volume at which they are replying these days makes me start to wonder if some of them are paid shills, or even bots. Anyone know how prevalent that sort of thing is now?
