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 avatar.
Need proof, just read the profile itself, should be enough to ban this individual permanently and all other accounts which they have access to also.
Hatred when displayed in this manner, as the account shows, is a violation of Hubpages TOS. I have provided a picture below of the account. For some reason, FireFox isn't working properly today on Hubpages and I'm unable to "flag this profile" on the profile. When I click, it doesn't nothing.
Also, when I went to my hubs, to share on Twitter, the "share" button isn't responding either. Already rebooted, cleared cache and restarted browser, but none of it has helped.
Please take action on both items.
I know and you're not the only one to do that. I appreciate your email, letting me know about this problem. I forwarded your email to Staff several minutes ago.
Also this person has copied a hub, I flagged it yesterday.
Don't mean to jump on your thread Cags. Surely we can get rid of these people quicker?
I think they have left the profile (but why?) - but may have removed the 3 posts that were on the site earlier - they were totally unsuitable for forum posts. Someone is keen on behaving more like a troll than a sock puppet.
Hope the staff will be on the alert for any attempts at more of the same.
It's not the first time it's happened to me. Last one I made an example of in the forums. He then proceeded to open yet another account and attack me yet again in the forums.
He was banned on both his accounts from the forums and I'm pretty sure that his accounts were permanently banned for the hate message I received.
However, his other currently held account is still active!
In his "final thoughts" hub, which is still cached on Google, this individual, in a previous HP incarnation broadcast his future intentions on HP:
" if I use my intelligence, I can make their internet-lives a hell. And they may receive psychological shocks that they will never recover from.
It's actually very easy. I need to install a software that will give a fake ip-address. And I may come here and say things they will never forget. HubPages will ban me? I will get another ip-address! It's just a matter of a few numbers. Another way is to get some new sim-cards. Insert them into your modem, and you have a new avatar that no one has ever seen, and can ever detect."
Easy to see it is the same individual. Same style of expression, same banging on about sockpuppets.
Personally, I think he is mentally ill!
I would definitely agree that he does have issues. There cannot be any doubt about that.
What a jerk. That is the kind of abuse that needs better handling. Sorry you had such an experience just before the holidays, Cagsil. Maybe HP will focus on these important issues now.
I'll be fine and it won't mess with my holidays. But, thank you. I'm glad that HP has already removed the profile page. It's foolishness like this that makes no sense. Why go to the extreme as this individual has? There's no rationale or even realistic ideology that would make any sense about the actions of this person.
Some people aren't happy unless they're making someone else miserable.
This discussion is all about a person attempting to get someone banned. Opening a thread for this purpose is pathetically stupid, so much so, which is why I suggest the humor category first. At least made other people laugh and they wouldn't have laughed if they didn't find my statement for the most part, accurate.
A discussion about getting someone banned? No, it's a discussion about illegal activity. There's a difference. And you attempting to be circumvent the rules is blatant disrespect for HP and not to mention ILLEGAL.
The picture you've used on this account is KNOWN to me. The girl is MY niece. You going through my Facebook account and trying to get me banned by your illegal steps/actions is what is pathetic.
Oh that is just sick! He had no right to use your niece's photo.
You should read the profile "HE" created.
A seriously sick twister individual, and what he has written is borderline illegal. I read his cached 'farewell' hub too, and I'm thinking folk like him crave attention and are possibly best ignored - completely.
If he comes back in yet another new name, then the best thing to do will be to report it, even if it is only a suspicion, but not engage in any form of conversation with him.
I'm sure ignoring him would be a good idea, but like Phenom Writer did for the longest time....blending into the community is quite easy at first, providing nothing stupid is done to let on who you are or that you have been on HP before. It's not so easy to ignore someone who is new to the forums and you don't actually know if the picture is really them or not.
I know the account with my niece's picture on it, is him and not her. Only completely ignorant people would do such a thing.
Wow Cags we like our fans but definitely NOT that sort hope you been well
My personal view on OP? That's your problem. You act like a child and then when someone treats you like a child, you complain?
who is back . .Keith Tax. . he did say good bye.. i keep wondering why he is still here.in this forum . .usually when one says goodbye . . ........
Hmm, I would like to see how long he can do all this. 1 Week ? 1 Month ? 1 Year ? It'll be interesting to see the point when he gets exhausted with all this stuff. That's a good piece of data on these type of folks.
I'm sure the nurses will put him back in his strait jacket soon and that'll be the end of that.
The saddest part about this is that someone is dedicating so much of their own time doing this to you.
Must be a single teenage boy because I know anyone who got laid on a regular basis sure wouldn't be wasting time doing something like this.
Why not ignore these posts - joined less than 30 mins ago and an expert on who and what is happening here ?
Interpol and the FBI are probably monitoring this thread

Just a general observation really, we have a hubber with 229 hubpages refuting allegations that he is a 'sockpuppet'... I don't really now this Stevenx fella, but surely just having that many hubs alone suggests that he is not a sockpuppet? Whilst he may well have a sockpuppet, like many hubbers,...

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?

Here's your chance to be absolutely forthcoming about your identities, folks! I expect tons of responses, so why not be the first??

I am very interested to figure out the psychosis that creates this thing called sockpuppeting. Do you have any idea. In case you don't know that there are laws that prevent it - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sockpuppet_(Internet)
