Response to Demonaut (Reply #8)

63. I don't think they mean posters like us w/long histories and posts in the thousands

I think they mean the new people who show up during the most heated part of election time (like in the last two months and not during the primaries) and have less than 1,000 posts. There have been a bunch of these lately (some will only have two dozen posts for example), and it is noticeable how they post "bad news for Hillary"-type posts w/out posting anything positive or really contributing to discussions. At least that is what I am guessing the OP means.

It has happened every election since I joined DU circa 2004. I think 2008 was the worst for low-count "concern trolls" and straight-up interference from the Freepers.
