Do you believe that there are intelligent trolls on the www that significantly impact popular social issues, like, even here on Yahoo o. O? Individual trolls acting alone? No. Targeted trolling by governments, groups and organizations? Hell yes. Works like a charm. One look at how successful organized trolling was in disrupting the 2016 US presidential election and the ongoing US net neutrality controversy provides clear proofs of that: 'Majority of net neutrality comments sent to FCC were fake' 'Net Neutrality: Was Your Name Used in Fake FCC Comments?' '“Fake” net neutrality comments at heart of lawsuit filed against FCC' 'The FCC's Net Neutrality Comments Included Millions of Fake Emails' 'Over half of public comments to FCC on net neutrality appear fake: study' 'Study: FCC net neutrality comments rife with fake users, duplicate messages' 'Trolls Paid by a Telecom Lobbying Firm 
Keep Commenting on My Net Neutrality Articles' 'Investigation of fake net neutrality foes has been stymied by the FCC, New York attorney general says' 'How Internet Trolls Won the 2016 Presidential Election' 'Russian Twitter trolls stoked voter fraud fear before election' '3,000 ads traced to Russian internet trolls with Kremlin ties' 'How Russian Bots Rallied on Election Day to Smear Hillary Clinton' 'Facebook will show which Russian election troll accounts you followed' 'Russian troll factory paid US activists to help fund protests during election' 'Russian trolls and bots disrupting US democracy via Facebook and Twitter' 'Russian Magazine Says 'Trolls' Used Social Media To Disrupt U.S. Election' ''Hillary is a Satan': Ten ads that Russian trolls posted during the 2016 U.S. election' 'St Petersburg 'troll farm' had 90 dedicated staff working to influence US election campaign' 'Employee reveals how Russian trolls targeted Hillary Clinton before election - after studying House of Cards' Those are just a few examples, not by any means a complete accounting of just how much organized trolling is going on. But it makes clear what I said about organized trolling being far more successful at swaying opinions than any lone wolves acting alone.

Russian Trolling of US Social Media May Have Been Much Greater effect The web brigades (Russian: Веб-бригады), also known as Russia's troll army[1] or troll factory[2][3], are state-sponsored anonymous Internet political commentators and trolls linked to the Russian government. Participants report that they are organized into teams and groups of commentators that participate in Russian and international political blogs and Internet forums using sockpuppets and large-scale orchestrated trolling and disinformation campaigns to promote pro-Putin and pro-Russian propaganda.[4][5][6][7] It has also been found that Wikipedia articles were targeted by Russian internet propaganda activities. ..........more.........

Why does Wikipedia's Myanmar entry dance around its Myanmar's identity as socialist - IOW if Wikipedia wishes to be taken seriously as an unbiased source of facts it must dump its leftwing bias? Everyone has a unique opinion of what the facts might be, which to include, and which are biased. It's not an easy balance, especially when there's only so much time in a day. Consider joining Wikipedia and contributing to its articles. Maybe more diversity of opinion in the editing of articles can increase perceived "balance" or "impartiality" for some.
