2. The real Russian trolls are being paid and struggling to feed themselves and their families.

Life sucks in Russia, and the government, media, and church don't teach moral behavior. The ends justify the means - always. The standard of living is very low. I think that most of the trolls consider their work like Americans working for the tobacco industry or people working for the Sackler family. Plus, in a sick way, their being paid to be creative and innovative. I think that some of the trolls burn out and move on. But in Russia, it's an industry with most of the trolls being paid to influence Russians and trolls in all European languages to ratfuck every single European democracy.

I think the key is to engage in a platform that is adept at identifying trolls through algorithms and astute users and administrators.
