    I know there are a lot of fakers and probably just as many people who blow up their figures by 3 to 4 inches (or, 9 inches and claiming 15)... but lately as I've been reading conversations, I'm beginning to notice posts here that might be from shills... then you check their post history... it's tangled with other posts that might be shills.

    Am I alone in noticing this? Any company that would stoop to spamming (*cough* penis enlargement and viagra *cough*) would probably also stoop to shilling, especially by trying to make other men feel inadequate.

    What does everyone think? Is this forum a place for advertising skullduggery?:biggrin1:

    I agree. Some people seem to have a single mindedness when it comes to unwavering support and constant posting regarding certain products. There's nothing wrong with giving Viagra (arbitrarily picked) a thumbs up if you've had a good experience with it. But continually posting nearly identical statements and weaving them into threads where there's questionable relevance makes me suspicious also.

    All this typing has made me thirtsy........time for a cold, cool Miller Genuine Draft, available at major retail outlets.

    Yes, a cold, cool Miller Genuine Draft would certainly be a great way to refresh oneself after typing so much.

    And you are quite right when you point out that Miller Genuine Draft is available at major retail outlets.

    In fact, I can't stress that point about Miller Genuine Draft enough. :rolleyes:

    Alex8 sounds suspiciously like Duffman from the Simpsons.

    With so many celebrities endorsing cosmetics these days, I wanted to make sure the cosmetic I endorsed was very special. That's why I'm proud to put my name on.. Steve Martin's All-Natural Penis Beauty Cream.. New Formula.

    It's a person who pushes something (sells a product continuously).

    Alex8 is using the example of beer. Someone who talks about something constantly, trying to convince others that what they have (i.e, dicks) are the best of all, is a shill.

    That's really just a definition of a salesman.

    A shill is someone working for the benefit of a company or business while pretending to be a customer. Traditionally it was someone - not a real buyer - bidding against real buyers at auctions, to drive the price up further than it would go if only real buyers were bidding. In the licensed auction business the practice is illegal, but you can be pretty certain that it is alive and well on eBay and other online auctions.

    Thanks BDG, I knew I was close to the idea... but was missing a few key things. I appreciate the actual definition.
