how do i know if a poster is a shill?I'm pretty new here, but I've realized a lot of posters are shilling their own coins or being paid to do so. what are the best ways to detect the shills and tell who is real and not? any good words or terms to add to my filter?

>>25928217i am very new, can you explain what you mean by >no website, no githublike theyre not posting a link??
>>25927865a shill would never say the word NIGGER
>>25928264If youre new and dont want to gamble your investment away. Stick to projects with solid teams. Check that they have a github that shows that they are consistently developing and working towards their milestones.For example, not shilling this is just a good example, look at the robonomics github.https://github.com/airalab/robonomics/graphs/contributorsYou can see that its been actively being developed. Also, notice the contributor gavofyork? Thats Gavin Wood. Gavin is the creator of Polkadot and the co-creator of Ethereum. Robonomics is a project being built on Polkadot.

>>25927865be very suspicious of generic:>pepes>normie memes>LINK memesthat are palette swapped and have a logo slapped onto them. These are almost entirely created by these $2/hour third world shill groups that are trying to "viral market" and "be the next LINK". Generally be suspicious of any project that compares or associates itself with LINK through meme edits, or calls itself "the next LINK".This is an example of "normie meme with logo slapped on". Anything that reminds you of this, run far away.
>>25928784AVAX is the next Link tho, NIGGER
>>25928217Allow me to add>no brainerAlso check if it's already pumped and they're just wanting to dump on you
>>25928777Check their websites. Look at the team. Are they experiences? Do they even exist? Advisors? Simple things like that
>>25928839Yes, very true.Also if it died in 2017 and has done nothing since, don't even think about it.
>>25928345based, this is true for all boards.
>>25928572great advice, thank you!
Be thankful that comedy and memes is one of the hardest things for an ESL to learn
>>25929717what does esl mean?
>>25927865>how do i know if a poster is a shill?>I'm pretty new here,honestly?stop being newlurk more, read more, google and research what you seethen when you've built up a good shill-o-meter start buying the good thingsyou'll probably miss out on some genuine gems, but we've all missed opportunities on things we were skeptical of that turned out to be real. we've also all put money into things that turned out to be dumb investments.so don't be afraid to make some mistakes - you will - but the only way to get better at recognizing shills is to spend time paying attention, reading, and learning.
>>25927865I don't care if it's a shill unless the value has already been pumped. I buy shitcoins all the time as long as they're still cheap.
