Another Reason to Distrust the Internet

This Escapist magazine article talks to an “Online Guerilla Marketer”, or someone hired to lie to you about who they are so they can sell you products.

I miss the good old days, when people lied to you because they wanted you to think they weren’t a nerd. (In the good old days, everyone online was a nerd.)

    I’ve heard about this before… I wonder how they made the ROI good. It seems it would take a lot of investment, since (at least in the cases I heard of) it sounds like a decent amount of time is spent just building credibility (even if that’s done by creating a history of message board posts with less than twenty words each).
