Radical centrist, lugger, angrybannedredditor, republican58, Salos....

They come to mind. Don't know what they get out of this though. This sub only has a few hundred posters. I don't know the point of harrassing here. No new guy seems to come here as well

Why lugger?

He's a neocon who shills for the US military

What a bootlicker

No. We do not want new arrivals to see a wall of shame populated by usernames who asked the same questions they want to ask. We are a "public" face to our movement and should hold ourselves to a higher standard of discourse, i.e. put up with the shills.

Well the problem is that the new arrivals(assuming there even are any) dont know who the shills are. So when someone posts something misleading solely to make people who debate here look extreme, crazed or like assholes, people dont know it.

I dont know about banning them, but I certainly call them out, and to be honest I think nearly all of them are the work of one or two people.

We do a pretty good job of staying level-headed with these people as is. I don't see anything that needs to change. It's easy enough to call out the shilling (politely) in the individual threads so that newcomers can learn how to spot them.

Newcomers are constantly accused of being alts of shills. People that are here in good faith for genuine debate find a hostile environment as a result. It would be beneficial for the community in my opinion if u/send_nasty_stuff would consider implementing the approved user setting or perhaps requiring a certain account age.

I agree this is a bit of a problem and genuine new users might get turned off and not understand that the question they asked is a common shill tactic. However, I don't think an approved user setting would be good for the sub. I will run the idea of an account age option by the other mods though. We had one on reddit and it did help weed out some bad apples.

Might sound strange but lots of new trolls is a good sign. It means the sub is pissing the right people off and getting on the radar. We are all pretty use to trolls and we do ban the obvious ones (I just banned another salos clone account a few minutes ago). I think we just need to continue to be tactful with new accounts and try to help train genuine new users on troll and shill tactics people used in real time.

Salos and Republican58 are definitely bad-faith. The problem isn't necessarily what they say, but rather it's their obvious intent. The fact they also act so similar indicates it is one person behind both.

Soylent (rather unlikely though), radicalcentrist (probable, and if not, just strange), Blork, Salos, RepublicanGuy, fschmidt, NegroSex, Lugger, AngryBannedRedditor, AltAlt and many more

I've been here for over 9 months now, if you have doubts that I'm here in good faith look through my submissions and find a single one that you believe to be in bad faith. Blork3D was my reddit account and my actions which got me banned was over 4 years ago.

Lugger should be added to the list, and so should the people who upvote him.

Why do you think I'm not here in good faith?

There's at least three that everyone's missing:

AfricanAnger and DoubleReverse (both accounts are inactive).

We even have a literal AHS'er, though I don't think he has commented in this sub:

fruitjack (0fruitjack0 on Reddit), see, for example: https://www.reddit.com/r/AgainstHateSubreddits/comments/mwcr8b/saiditnet_farright_reddit_clone_for_fascists_was/gvhrfc6?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
