    I wasn't around here. But I guess HubPages have failed to keep the trolls away from their good website. The sockpuppets have doubled in the nine months that I wasn't present here. Suggestions?

      Some people have been banned from forums. Whether they are trolls, I do not know. One person was banned from the site. He was popular, but something happened, I guess. Welcome back.

        Most of that increase is due to one person.  I guess they can't work out how to block him other than 72-hour delay whack-a-mole approach.  But it seems to catch up with you/him eventually.

      Where do you apply for the sock puppet reply job?

      Employers: My freelance rates are reasonable for fabrications and just a bit more for believable fiction. If you’re looking for provocation I’m real effective and expensive. Debunking and Sock Puppet assination cost more. Note: Payment is required in advance
      If you’re paying I’m writing.

      If you have been here more than a week and have never posted a Hub... you might be a troll...
