I would just like to say that sockpuppeting is NOT ALLOWED in the comments section no matter how unpopular your opinion is, thank you.
what is sockpuppeting??
i concur, what is sock puppeting?
Thanks for the illumination
Why the hell do people do that anyway.
I have no idea what sockpuppeting is…it sounds amusing but im guessing it likely has more to do with snarkhunting…
Well I suppose to make their opinions look more appealing and to create a jump-on-the-bandwagon scenario. And that just makes me wonder what snarkhunting is.
ah, ive seen people do that on the forums I admin (TheBetterMod Forums)
people would make a dozen gmail accounts just to sockpuppet and troll…never knew what they were doing was called. I usually delete the posts and ban the puppeteer.
is Sockpuppeting against ISP terms of service?
It’s not against ISP TOS, just against common decency.
it should be against ISP TOS….then I can report em and get thier internet shut off…
Why? All it is is annoying, not malicious. If it were being used to perform DOS attacks, then there’d be a good reason.
It depends on the terms of your ISP, ISP’s have a rather wide range of things they can nuke you for.
People do it cause they know their stuff might be bad to a lot of Critics.
I honestly wouldnt Bother doing it. Nice Avatar by the way Rick.
Who in the world was sockpuppeting? I haven’t seen any evidence of that anywhere.
J.C., Matt and Skippy on Friday’s comic all had exactly the same IP and exactly the same opinions, and pretended like he was multiple people backing each other up.
ok. I won’t ever sockpuppet…again.
jk…or am i?
*cue eerie music*
what’s an IsP, and top btw???
Internet Service Providers and Terms Of Service
I run a small blog site that i have to scan for idiots that do that sort of thing. I ban whole IP addresses though not just the account or email. You wouldn’t believe the sorts of emails i get for it.
Oh I would.
Of course, that mian problem is, sometimes you do actually get two users from the same IP address with the same opinion, because theyre related. If they make exactly the same spelling errors though, thats a bit of a givaway. I recall once A forum I was on had the same guy posting under 40 different account names. I cant imagine how he kept them all straight!
the mods developed a system where the same ip couldnt reply to their own posts.
The problem with that is occasionally you may get someone from the same IP. I only block it, if it is a continuous thing where the same IP is replying to itself over and over again. once is fine, but twice is shut down.
Rick Griffin is AWESOME!!!
Mod Edit-Not cute.
