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?
They are being paid by the popcorn companies.
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.
I have not seen trolls...only gnomes! and....those durn Web Gremlins that screw the site up from time to time...like stats not updating for hours and other Web Gremlin games.
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?

Hey Staff,I realize you're presently busy, however I have just recently sent you an email, which requested that you pull down an account from another Hubber, who recently posted to the forums, using a sock puppet account, in an attempt to DEFAME me and illegally using my own personal picture as an...

In your experience and from your observations, are there Hubbers that are afraid of other Hubbers? Do you believe that something can and should be done to remove such fear?

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?
