Then I realize my writing style probably isn't as unique as I think it is, and I start to wonder if I could get away with it, thus restarting the whole internal debate.

I have one alternate login who has posted only once, and I use him to vote in DT poals only when I want specifically to give myself twice the voting power to belittle or emasculate Cunny. Is teh true.

I would know if you had a sock puppet, the puppet would sound exactly like Hank Hill.

I still don't understand why sockpuppets - well known ones - are allowed here. Every other forum I've visited, where sockpuppetry could have some value, has banned members if they are found to use sockpuppets. What's the idea behind allowing them here, especially when mods can easily track who is whom?

Sometimes they are funny. <----- what I look like while enjoying some well-done sockpuppetry.

Anyone who has ever had a good sock puppet knows to use a proxy to change their IP address.
