12 pence, or 3 groats, or 2 groats 2 pence and four farthings, or maybe even 4 thruppence, or 1/5 crown.... or was it 2 tuppence, a groat and 16 half-pence. I could also be 1/10 crown and tanner. But then again you could just say it was a bob.

A person engaged in covert advertising. The shill attempts to spread buzz by personally endorsing the product in public forums with the pretense of sincerity, when in fact he is being paid for his services.
Who are you shilling for?

Ignore the n00b, he's just here to shill.

A shill is a person who publicly attempts to constitute, increase or sustain credibility and/or approval of/to an entity without disclosing that they have a relationship with the entity, understating the type, importance or closeness of said relationship or concealing the actual role in which they perform for said entity.

The goal of the the shill is a (expected) personal benefit, may it be profit (participation), wage, payment by result or enabling, increasing or sustaining the chance of success for a specific socio-economic or socio-political project.

The entity can be either a person or an organized or disorganized group. Organized groups have some level of structure and decision-making ability while disorganized groups don't.

Organized groups can be the government, politicial parties, profit-oriented companies, investment or interest groups (hedgefonds, freemasons) or non-profit non-government organizations like non-profit companies, charities, churches or cults. Disorganized groups can be religions or unreligious cosmovisions (atheism, humanism), permanent political ideologies (f.e. communism, capitalism) or temporary political interest groups (f.e. "pro-life-movement" for abolishing the right to have an abortion).

The difference between shilling and expression of opinion is that the benefit is received from an external rather than an (emotional or intellectual) internal source or that the external force dominates the internal motivation.
That snake is promoting the APPLE (TM) product of that tree to Adam, because he wants to create SIN (TM), but he tells him it's for his own good. What a fucking shill!

In conspiracy terms: A Shill is a person who is pretending to agree with a conspiracy and intentionally circulates false information or acts totally insane in an effort to discredit said conspiracy. Shills are often thought to be hired by the government but don't necessarily have to be.
The media loves Shills because its easy to Straw man their false arguments and link their crazy unproven claims to ALL believers of said Conspiracy.

Fake participants in the street gambling card game, three-card monte. They are decoys who "play" and "win" to entice novices into playing and loosing their money, but they are actually in on the scam with the dealer.
One or two shills will usually be the first to enter a game of three-card monte.

When an SP (Service Provider: aka hooker, escort, etc) provides a third person recount of her/his services on a review board (i.e. www.perb.ca) under the context of it being from an actual customer's experience.
A shill could look something like this. "Hi, my name's Bob and I'm a long time lurker first time poster. Despite previous negative reviews I saw Brandie and she fucked me rotten, I've never had such a good experience. I think everyone should see her and spend their hard earned money."
