I've never done a sock puppet. Is it fun?

Do a lot of our celebrity poasters do it? Is it how I make it into the inner circle?

My sock puppet only had about five posts over two months before being banned.

Can I know who said what that got it shut down? Because I personally believe that it is an issue that more people should get angry about.

Some of them were made in a seeming attempt to be funny, in a topic where humor really had no place at all. Maybe I should just move the topic back and temp- or perma-ban everyone who says something stupid and sickeningly insensitive in response.

Warning, images are very graphic (though probably SFW), but I think it's important enough: http://blogs.tampabay.com/photo/2009...-personal.html Hopefully people know enough not to respond immaturely in this thread.

My God. Anyone who purports to believe in equality or simple decency should get angry about that.

Thanks for posting the link again J ... some of the images in the other articles linked in the one above are even more graphic.

I didn't get halfway through before shutting down the browser and leaving my office for a minute.

OK, I know I am courting alienation by saying this, but have we considered banning posters who use sock puppets? I mean, not just the sock puppets but their other personas as well? Just a thought.

I have done that at times, but usually it is enough to ban the sock puppet account after the person has had a run of getting whatever fun he needed and hopefully before any real harm is done.

They are correct? It's multi choice.

Why not have the percentages add up to a total of 100%?

It would if the pole was set so that you could only choose one. Right now it will show the percentage for each option out of all the people that voted. So for example, 41% of 219 people think that Mr Moo has bad taste. (The other 59% probably got him confused with Mafoofan or did not notice his name in the list.)
