    In a forum, a sockpuppet is a fake online identity that someone creates to talk about himself or herself, to deliberately mislead others into thinking that it is a different person.  It comes from the idea that a sockpuppet behaves like it has its own identity, but it is of course really part of the person manipulating it.
