Definition Of A Sockpuppet
« on: September 11, 2010, 04:44:45 PM »
Quote from: "ajax13"
Psy already said you are a Sockpuppet.
No, I didn't.  I said quite the opposite, that "IslamIsViolent" and "Stonewall" were not the same people.

Quote
a New York Times article claims that "sockpuppeting" is defined as "the act of creating a fake online identity to praise, defend or create the illusion of support for one's self, allies or company."[2]

The key difference between a sockpuppet and a regular pseudonym (sometimes termed an "alt" which is short for alternate, as in alternate identity) is the pretense that the puppet is a third party who is not affiliated with the puppeteer or acting under their control for their benefit.

No, you said that Islamisviolent uses another name on Fornits.  That, in my mindis a sockpuppet.  If you don't like it, but all means embrace your opinion with all your heart.

I did say that, but he doesn't fit the definition of a sock-puppet.  The account is not used to deceive...  merely to maintain privacy.  See my previous post.

I don't agree with your assessment.  As the posts of Islamisviolent are, in my opinion, bigoted and hate-fuelled, I very firmly belief that the use of another user-name constitutes sock-puppetry.  But I suppose it will have to be left to your Solomon-like judgement, clearly demonstrated in your phony claim that I was accusing posters of being secret agent jews.

Well. You can take it up on wikipedia's discussions page and with the sources they site.

I don't have to take it up with anybody.  I believe very firmly that the Islamisviolent is using the second identity in a deceptive manner.  So by all means, ban me if you object so strongly to my opinion.

Sock-puppet master:

Connie: You are a lying manipulator with an agenda!
Sockpuppet 1(also Connie, but logged in as anon, or Mandy, or Fred. . .) That's right Connie! You tell them!
Sockpuppet 2 (also Connie, but logged in as anon, or Mandy, or Fred. . .) I agree. So-N-so and so-N-so and this-a-one and that-a-one are too! I have seen them in the act of lying and manipulating!
SockPuppet 3  (also Connie, but logged in as anon, or Mandy, or Fred. . .) Wow, Connie - you are so smart to figure that out! I wish I was smart like you -

And so it goes. It is a pitiful tactic.

Sock puppets can make controversial comments or vote for or against a case without revealing their identity. They may react to their Usenet posts or blog extolling the articles they write for themselves or disagree with comments criticizing them on other sites. The sock is stretched completely, so it is long enough to cover the puppeteer's wrist and part of the intestine. Often, but not always, a puppeteer from behind a stand and raise his hand on the foot so that only the puppet is visible.

A sock puppet is a puppet made from a sock. The account is not used to deceive.

A simple hand puppet made from a sock placed over the hand of the puppeteer.
So... you... say...

A sockpuppet is an  identity used for purposes of deception within an online community. In its earliest usage, a sockpuppet was a false identity through which a member of an Internet community speaks with or about himself or herself, pretending to be a different person,[1] like a ventriloquist manipulating a hand puppet. :notworthy:

The process of making online fake id for defending is called Sockpuppet. This method is very popular now a days. And it is adopt by many people. People are very anxious to learn about it. It is an illegal process.
