11. It has been going on for years.

The Yahoo! boards have been overwhelmed with them for more than a decade. HuffPoo has gotten to where most of their commenters are paid trolls, although they were not so bad before Arianna sold out to AOL, who brought in reinforcements from their troll-infested boards.

Anywhere you go, they're there. I go to web sites that have discussion boards that have absolutely NOTHING to do with politics, like the TV web-streaming sites, and comments sections on baseball web sites. And, there they are, spreading their shit all over the joint. BTW, there's a reason for the same comments and same grammar. A lot of those trolls have multiple log-in names, which lets them maximize their income. A lot of the time, it's really easy to tell which ones are the same person. It's kind of like watching the trolls who come here, get PPRed, and come back under a different name. You know it's the same person by the color of the crayon they use, so to speak.
