Very interesting and useful little quiz on spotting trolls.

Just goes to show that trolls are as Russian and prevalent on the left as the right...

I think the mistake is to view them from that perspective.
The intention to disrupt and unsettle recognises no side other than Putin/Russia's interest.

Not really.

If you take the quiz results/research as accurate then you can see that Russians are quite happy to try to influence both left and right, and yet the overwhelming narrative is that Russian influence is only aimed at the right/Trump.

The mistake is not to recognise that fact.

Because that is where they see the best option to achieve their aims and doesn't affect my statement in any way.

Really, so what's the % split between Russian fake accounts on the left and right?

And why does trying to influence the Right best achieve their aims?

Based on what I've seen over the last few years, it's the left that are extremely malleable and open to influence - although I've yet to be convinced that anyone bar a few would've have been influenced in this manner.

Think of the left as the Rojos, the right as the Baxters, and Russia as the man with no name. Watch A Fistful of Dollars and you’ll get what Snaps is saying...

And note who’s left alive at the end of that movie.

Because you are the self proclaimed defender of the "good right" who has no idea how far right you have swung and that most normal people are now to your left, so therefore they are left even when they are mostly central, and you lost the ability to distinguish fake from real and fact check your own sources because of all this?
