Trolls, trolls, trolls. They are everywhere. Many of them are paid. Some just want to make trouble in the internet. All of them want our attention.
With the current trolls wars in the Philippine internet community, the camp of those who supports President Duterte and those who still glorify the the previous administrations (the so-called “Yellowtards” for the lack of better terms) clash against each other spewing stupidity after one stupidity.
While the Ms. Universe pageant is finally over, some troll pages link the results to something very irrelevant to the topic. Facebook page, Change Scamming posted a photo comparing the photo of Pia Wurtzbach (on the right) and Maxine Medina (on the left) in an attempt to associate the results with the changes of administration.
Since I classified this post as something stupid, I really don’t like to divert internet traffic to their page. Here is an alternate post:
Why do I find this stupid? Obviously, there is no direct connection between the results of the Ms. Universe pageant and the performance of the Philippine government. It is definitely non sequitur.
Why do people keep on posting stupid stuff like this? Troll pages like this one wants attention. They get views from people who hate the post. So, sharing it can actually boost their views and thus, generate more cash through ads, sponsors, or whatever is paying them.
In defense, Change Scamming posted a link of the comparison of two photos of the Typhoons Yolanda and Lawin.
It appears they are taking vengeance.
If you don’t like to be infected by their stupid agendas, educate yourself. Don’t follow them nor comment or react on their post. Don’t give them internet traffic that they want. If possible, block their page and report them.
We can only hope that Facebook will take necessary sanctions to these troll pages.
