Welcome to v/ReportShills,

(Working) Shill Reporting Rules
do not break u.s. law nor voat user agreement
A shill report requires: proof of consistent shilling. the community will soon come to an idea of what that is; to start: at least 3 posts/comments of disinformation tactics/fallacious speech.
Absolutely take these specific actions when encountering shills: point out specific fallacies and disinformation tactics, in purpletext. With evidence as required in rule 2, post to v/reportshills
banning is a last resort against shill spam and overt assault/harassment attacks. in general, refrain from it, instead, use rule 3.
there is a big difference between shills and paid shills. the above is for shills; paid shills require evidence beyond the above, in that they are compensated for working here, rather than a person not paid behaving a certain (shill) way - much harder to prove. flairs will be made for "CONFIRMED SHILL," "POSSIBLE PAID SHILL," "CONFIRMED PAID SHILL." note we may never see the third flair.
post format: the @ username that's it. just the username with the @ symbol. for two reasons: 1, so all posts are the same formatted title, and 2, so each user accused of it can rebut it.
"shills" on a social network working definition
using disinformation tactics and/or fallacious speech consistently
reports posted without evidence will be deleted, as will u.s. law and voat user agreement -breaking posts.
shills will be banned forever when they are proven to be shills in this sub, after having been given time to refute the claims.
disinformation tactics: https://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm
please also post any information, news, better infographics about and on disinformation tactics, new shill groups, conspiracies, etc.
this is anti-shill central.
shilling is a set of behaviors, as defined: using disinformation tactics and/or fallacious speech consistently
point it out, call it out,
do it like this
user a (shill)
hey your argument sucks because you're a homo that means only gays agree with you
user b (not shill)
no other response is needed than to point it out.
there is no reason to talk to a shill, they are not talking to you, but either at your or to the audience.
