<br>sock puppet n. [Usenet: from the act of placing a sock over your hand and talking to it and pretending it's talking back] In Usenet parlance, a pseudo through which the puppeteer posts follow-ups to their own original message to give the appearance that a number of people support the views held in the original message. <br><br>[color:red]example</font color=red><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green>
Well I have my own idea as Celandine posted that definition meets my interpretation, then I did a search and as everything else in life some folks have different ideas and interpertations...go figure..<br> http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?SockPuppet <br> <br><br>

anyway this forum has no rules against sock puppeteering .. yet<br>and i doubt that anyone really wants to make this place that paranoid.<br>however, puppets remain transparent.. watch those lips, see who is uttering "read my lips" through thinly vield tight lippedness.<br><br>"Use of a SockPuppet may also be a means for a member, to avoid linking too visibly a RealName activity from a PenName activity on the net. It is not necessarily meant to be disruptive in the community itself. Thus someone may choose to have a RealName identity and a PenName identity in the same community."<br><br><br><br>
