People who want to register here as users can't even do it, so plants def aren't wasting their time. It took Dan Slott like a year to get registered. It's just a funny running joke at this point.

Oh, they're already here. The roots are deep.

(meaning, same company(ies), different year)

Nah. I'm literally made of Swamp, man. I'd know if there were plants here.

The amount of influence that this place would have on the success of TMNT is zilch. We aren't important enough. We are not worth the time/money, and the current overlords of Nick would in all likelihood consider this place toxic, whether we feel it is or not. There may have been a plant here once, I don't know. Maybe you're right about that.
But I am confident they aren't hanging around and trying to influence us.

The idea of plants being here is funny. I hope it stays. But not to the point where we try to disregard people who have a different opinion with "plant". That's lame. This place isn't toxic, but that sure does lower the discourse.
I think there are some overzealous people that arrive here, so I can see where the temptation comes from.

That they'd take a pit stop at the Drome as they have in the past would hardly be out of the question, and it's not like they need to show receipts to their benefactor.
Oh I agree with all of this.... And arguably almost any post you received on social media in the last four years which assaulted you for not liking a movie had a high likelihood of being an industry shill, bot or marketer.

And it is possible here too, but if they are here they are ineffective as hell. Vitriol against "trolls" as a tactic only works when you've swarmed a platform with comparative levels of toxic-positivity. The last time we saw that here was when whoever made some push to force everyone to like Rise. It didn't work.

Brings back the fond memories of how everyone railed on me for hating the first Bay movie (AFTER HAVING SEEN IT).
The gaslighting during that movies release was something, especially after the reveal of how garish and off-putting the turtle designs were

Oh, no, not jealous. More like wondering, “Unless she’s already rich, how is she gonna retire after spending so much money on TMNT merchandise?”

I just posted this as a joke, because you have to admit, that is pretty extreme, but in a cool way.

We didn't we just pretty much hated the film more or less the same now.
