10. Thinking...
see, that's the problem. Labelling a dissenting poster as a paid shill is a taking the easy way out of a discussion. It's an intellectually lazy tactic (but I admit that I've used it myself - not proud of that btw). It doesn't take any thinking to shout "Paid Shill!!!" and point your finger.

I know they're out there. Everyone knows they're out there. However, I worry that honest disagreement will be too quickly dismissed as "You're disagreeing? Do you work for Netvocates?".
