Which countries have them?

I read past reports that Israel (jidf), England, Russia, and Malaysia openly has them, but I currently can't find the articles.

Can anyone share links (non-jidf please those are everywhere) to articles, or some YouTube videos/documentaries?

Those give me nightmares from the 90's. They somehow made them creepier than the treasure troll bingo ones.

I would guess that like most mass produced plastic toys, China.

But on a serious note, it's not the countries that are the issue, it's the corporations and the so called "charities" that have the most troll factories.

And let us not forget America's chaste political parties.

Unless she was being funny, I find it ironic that we talk about "Troll factories", and Lorreen immediately thinks we're talking about the plastic pink-haired variety.

Turns out, many of the "troll factories" ARE in Norway, and Denmark and most of that general Nordic/Germanic area of Europe keeps up its end as well.

Oh, and remember back when we thought those "Nigerian oil scams" weren't really coming from Nigeria?

I was being silly.

I may be misguided, but I'm not stupid.
