Real eyes realize real lies, as Tupac and Machine Head once preached, and on the internet, those eyes are multiplied by millions. And although there will always be naive newcomers, it is always amusing to see how high the numbers of people who try to sell a fake story as reality are.

The motivation for such behavior, when widespread ignorance is excluded, ranges from attention-seeking, insecurity, infantile behavior, frustration, or even boredom.
