Sock Puppet Culture?Page 2 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
The people who complain the most and like to out the "sock puppets"
are the ones that actually have them and use them.

Lots of people have new profiles and different pictures but don't
pretend to be anyone else.

I think there are a lot of lonely, perhaps house bound, definitely
depressed and angry people in these forums. It's probably
a form of therapy or social interaction for them.

I don't take it personally and I can ignore people I don't like.
It's mostly just an interesting waste of time for me.

I've been here a long time...not for dating purposes just because
I do have people I talk to here and I do waste time here. Many of
these sock puppets go back as far as I do. They don't change,
they remain the same. It sometimes takes a while for me to recognize
them, but then...there they are.

Whatever makes people happy I guess.

This topic appears to be losing steam quickly. We need Mr./Ms. Socko...

It is sad when a person believes they need sock puppets, then use them to back up their opinions and/or attack others. It's just as sad to not be able to accept that people can disagree without believing it a conspiracy and accusing others of being sock.

I don't agree with my friends all the time. Why should strangers be expected to agree?

^Let's be honest....We all know the "Queen of Socks" is the only troublemaker of the forums.

If SHE says....Paint the Roses Red....paint them f**king Red! Or have your profile deleted. ;) ;)


I don't like red...how 'bout you? :D

As a person that's been called a sock by her on many, many occasions, and someone who feels BA was involved in my own nuking years ago, I get where you're coming from. And because she's gotten more vicious over the years I'd like to blame all the nukings on her, but she's not the only person involved. There have been posters I like and those I roll my eyes at that have been nuked too. I just wish I knew how to stop it.

The number of times blondwig has been nuked is somewhere in the "stratosfere",
and she and her puppets have taken many good posters with her/them.
Wonder if she'll come back posing as her boyfriend again.

I applaud her for demonstrating to those of us old enough to not care, the concept of 'gender fluidity'~

Slow clap clap clap

Well , well. look at all the " overunity" in this thread. The usual suspects, as per usual. Well, minus a few of the ringleaders that have sadly departed. LOL Its always wise to own up to your own shiat though. As far as I know, they don't nuke people for no reason. If someone gets nuked its usually for something they said, that's way out of line. I know, it's much more convenient to blame someone else, but the adult thing to do is " own" your posts. So if someone gets "taken out", together with another poster, you can bet your bloomers they are up to their ears in it too.

I remember the late, great, Cowboy saying, the number of posters who had "socks" was quite high. These posters were usually some of the more popular posters on the boards. If I get some time later, maybe I will try to find that post. I think there are quite a few "socks" on these boards.


Btw, it really isn't healthy for you people to be so obsessed with B.A. Why let someone who you supposedly don't like, rent so much space in your head? hahahahaha! I will tell her she is missed and needs to get back here A.S.A.P.

Platitude...

"Million, i thought there was a possibility you were kj. I don't think that's possoble anymore... you may be a trump supporter like she is, but it is clear you are not close to her IQ nor are you a decent person by any stretch of the imagination. G's what the hell was wrong with me thinking that was even possible? KJ Wherever You Are I apologize to you for thinking there was any possibility this obvious miscreant could be you period. Sorry."


Were you an incorrect azzhole then or are you an incorrect azzhole now?

Either is fine with me. ;)

Only just having discovered the meaning of 'sock puppet', I found it odd that MR appeared only after the others disappeared and seems also to have a negative outlook on this and other threads. Can't trust anyone. LOL.

I don't know if it is sad but if they are good at the process, it can make for a lively debate. Unfortunately, the negativity evolves and before you know it, everyone has jumped into the ditch. I got caught up in it and have resolved to post positivity, empathy and/or humor when possible.

^^^^ for a short while, i believed MR was somebody who used to post here...KJ521, who because she made enemies with BA, could not keep a profile here. But KJ521 had a positive personality and would NEVER say anything to anyone in a manner to mock them....... you are absolutely right, MR has a really negative, nasty personality. MR obviously posted here regulary before, I just don't know who she was, but I'm pretty sure she has never been BA. They have two distinct personalities.

I just realized all along I was pretending to be someone I wasn't.... While consequently forgetting who I was originally. All the while acknowledging there were two of me and only one of us were real and the other smelled like a old sock. Which is in itself another reality altogether.

Socks come in pairs and many are also holy..... Darn them.

I said "negative" not "nasty" and I have noticed since, that MR simply has a very classy and intelligent way of saying what she thinks in a straight up manner that generally questions the negativity of other posters. I'm thinking 'class act'.
