#1 "actual Reddit users who were amplifying troll-made content of their own volition"

So the Russians created Memes and they were good enough to repeat by those that agreed. That doesn't mean minds were changed, it means folks were entertained.

#2 I go to Reddit occasionally but I don't recall seeing any hinky ads. However, if I did see such an ad, it didn't make any difference.

Now, the thought of Hillary Clinton in the WH for eight years scared the living crap out of me and did influence my vote.
