There is a burgeoning controversy happening on the top gadget sites about a shill for Motorola haplessly blathering on about the qualities of the Motorola Krave.
It’s happening on BoingBoing.
It’s happening on Crunchgear.
And it’s happening on many other places as well.
Posting as a shill in the comment sections of blogs is a practice commonly referred to as astroturfing. And blog readers are too smart to let it go unnoticed.
Here’s an example of what’s been going on:
- My Trip To The Wired Store.
- DMCA Takedown on Google.
