    Russian trolls/bots are quite easy to spot. They generally have less than a thousand comments, sometimes less than a hundred (because they have change their account name so many times), they can be completely irrelevant to the article subject, or make highly inappropriate comments, often in semi-literate 'English,' or are unfamiliar with obvious references that any American would know. If the article is in any way critical of Trump, or Russia, or talks about Ukraine, the Russian trolls/bots come out in droves. They are also highly critical of article sources, rather than the content of the articles themselves, and this is why you see them complaining about 'Huffpo,' or even 'Yahoo.' If they don't LIKE these articles, why do they bother to read them and comment on them? There is only ONE reason, and that is because they are PAID to do so, and that 'payment' comes in Roubles. YOU know it; I know it; so why isn't anything DONE about it?
