I've heard this term floating around Hubpages, especially on the forums. What exactly is a Sockpuppet on here?
Oh! So it's basically someone that has made a second account to promote their first and main one?
Sockpuppet's do not exist. You can either play your main character or you can logoff your main and log in on an alternate character and play your alt for a while...
I'm pretty sure that sometimes there are sockpuppets that have sockpuppets.
if these so called sockpuppets really do exist, they could never have sockpuppets of their own because socks do not have appendages upon which a sockpuppet can be planted.
Your hand looks like it's raring for a sockpuppet, don't you think?
Or, are you just displaying a friendly pageant wave?
I think sockpuppets are distinctly created to cause mischief and make comments that the actual "puppeteer" would not normally make as him/herself. So they are destructive usually. That's my definition. If you have to use another alternative identity to say something, why? isn't it because you don't want to damage your own reputation? So they are not a good thing even if they do no actual harm. If you want to be funny, I have found that you can be yourself and be funny - without being scandalous or mean.
I should probably add that most folks aren't fans of sockpuppets, because of the aforementioned mischief.

For the second time in less than a week, I just spent time opening "questions" that aren't questions, but nonsensical "garbage"--bits of a paragraph copies from somewhere and dumped into HP. In each case, I flagged them for HP, and they will likely disappear soon. But they harm...

Do you think the hubpages forums are useful or pointless?Do you feel that the hubpages forums are useful or do you think that they are merely loaded down with pointless and uninformative arguements that add nothing of value to the hubpages experience?

I am such a champ at procrastination. I am well aware that this online thing takes time, effort, and lots of work. Yet for the past couple of days, I have not been able to get motivated to do anything constructive online. Of course, I've had time to post on the forum's 'last post contest' thread...

I was just curious. I have not seen a lot of hubbers that have been here at Hubpages for over two years..perhaps they are too busy hubbing away!
