Who has a sockpuppet?

    So, how do you know who has a sockpuppet?  How can you know which sock puppet belongs to who?  Is there a way you can check?

      OK I missed the boat on this one.....what's a sock puppet? I thought it was a sock that I sewed eyes to and made silly voices while opening and closing my palm....hmmm....they are going to take me away!!!!!

        when someone has more than one account the other accounts are called sock puppet accounts. some people do this just to fan themselves or bring up their own ratings. in my book this violates the very idea of hubpages and should not be permitted.

          Ahhhhh thank you!!!! I can see the idea of having a sock puppet so you can differentiate between types of writing -one for serious hubs, one for selling hubs etc.....but don't like the idea of having multiple account simply to increase 'fans', vot on hubs and basically 'cheat'...

          May I clarify this? A sockpuppet is when a person has more then one account and uses them for a malicious purpose. 

          A person who has more then one account and uses it for commercial purposes is not a sock puppet nor do they run back and forth trying to bring up the hub scores. Just thought I would clarify smile

            What about the other part of the question?  How can you identify a sock puppet - or can't you?

      sockpuppets (evil, sick ones) never comment you because they know you can see their IP address. be very suspicious of newbies who say they are a fan but never comment you. i commented a few poeple yesterday just so they could see my IP address. there is a nutcase running around who is creating sockpuppet after sockpuppet. personally i think they have no life.

          We already got it sorted out though. Not that I don't appreciate the help. That thread was more of an unofficial announcement that I probably wouldn't be online for awhile. People are asking for way too much personal information anyway, which is why I really can't take their help.

          They are only going to garnish half his wages now though. If I can just get an extra $1,000 before the month is up, we should be able to pay all our bills.

              I understand.  I went there and read it.  I come to the forums to discuss the topics that are poste.  Usually I just want to laugh and have fun, but sometimes I get serious.  I find it very frustrating and distracting when people in the middle of a thread start posting back and forth about their personal friendship or the hubs they are writing.  If I want to know what someone's new hubs are all I have to do is go look!  but that's just me.  and I was being sarcastic.  So, so, so - that's what!

                Sorry I was just trying to be  circumspect. I have been told I am no kind of writer and probably a sock puppet myself, so I am trying to stay out of things. I only came to the forums to try to help people who had questions and such. Tried to keep some good writers from leaving.
                I had some great laughs with you as I recall. I am sorry if I was chatting too much. I just don't see stevennix much any more. I am not asking anyone to read my hubs, and never have, so if that's what anyone thinks, really I don't care, I know what the truth is about myself, and I am sorry if the rest of the world is so jaded that they think I am that shallow.
                If I wanted everyone to read them I would just play stupid and open up forums for it like a noob.

                  hey!  don't worry about it!  please stop! - I am notorious for getting impatient with people who use the forums like a chat room - and then I turn around and do it myself!  usually just get upset when I feel ignored.  ego ego ego

                  you and I aren't much alike, but that's ok - I don't care if you are religious etc.and I'm not, that's fine.  I don't usually get too personal about anything, joke around alot.  hate name calling (we have that in common)   BUT you do SO want people to read your hubs, and there's nothing wrong with that, I mean we are all hubbers, that's what we do is write hubs and we read each other's stuff and talk about and that's fine.  What I meant was that so many times a delightful, funny, interesting or informative exchange is going on in the forums and I am just happy happy happy and then along comes a couple hubber peeps who start CHATTING! solely with each other - and the posts that are on topic get lost in between "hi, hun, how areya?" "are you pmsing again, or what?" and "I'm writing about the antidiluvial deluded postmistresses of east mcKeesport.  wht are you writing about"  "did you get the lambchop I sent you?" 

                  - so do you get me?  that's all it is.
