I would actually find the large numbers of the blind zealously fanboys to be more likely part of this.

Or at least a greater number.

Just about every thread that has valid issues and concerns by gamers who wish to discuss the game gets attacked by fanboys that attack the character of the complainer.

I think bioware would spend a lot of money to props there own game in the forums. After all just think about how much they spent on marketing.

Even though there are a huge amount of hate on this forum, I find a lot of it to be valid / justified and up for debate. I hardly ever see "THIS GAME IS THE SUXORS" a lot of the hate threads are from in game experiences most of which I also experience.

Which can (and is routinely) be done in numbers by an employer, too.

Next?

Does that mean all of the "TOR is the next coming" spam that the internet was buried under was Bioware's firm?

Actually it might have been, never mind.

God the internet just gets more and more gross, doesn't it?

Sometimes you can even see them at work which is funny. A certain topic will go for hours with a certain, normal pattern of commentary, and then BOOM suddenly a bunch of people come in chiming very similar messages in support of that party/gov't.
What was the point in mentioning that they're "conservative" exactly?
