    I think Porkchop also really liked the 7 times that LiteralLarry posted.

    can I ask a serious question?

    What's the point of a sock puppet?  Seriously?

    If you have something to say, can you just man (or woman) up an say it under your own name?

    I only speak for myself, but I make ones that are funny (to me) and relevant to whatever the topic is, like the ones above.  Or from a movie or something. 

    I don't make sockpuppets to launch attacks at anyone.  That's stupid.

    For as annoying as getting nuked a million times was, "DING-gate 2012" was probably one of the funniest things here, ever.

    It would have been difficult for me to pull off being a rooster and pecking at the ground, etc., by being a reindeer instead of a rooster. Srsly.

    I don't understand why "ding" is a poofable word.

    Toasted almond is not welcome in this house.

    I do agree with the spirit of Icey's post though.  I don't necessarily have a problem with someone making a sockpuppet to stir things up by making a devil's advocate argument anonymously.  It's the personal attacks, like, the ultra-personal bringing-offline-into-online-world (which apparently is A-okay by BDCMod1 and Meredith herself).

    I enjoyed the Carol Brady one from earlier in the week. If only I were that creative...

    Re: Sock Puppet Amnesty

    i agree that sometimes it is entertaining when people post in character, and can't accomplish that under their normal persona...

    but creating sock puppets just to stir the pot, or attack people, or because no one on the blog likes them anymore under their original name, or because a while ago, they "retired" and don't want to come back under that original name to hear a bunch of "told ya so, people never leave." --- that crap is ridiculous. If you want to debate someone, or attack someone, do it under your original name, or don't do it at all -- that's being cowardly.

    Re: Sock Puppet Amnesty

    Icey, sometimes stirring the pot is okay.  I can see why someone would create a sockpuppet to specifically do that, because sometimes stirring the pot is harmless.

    But "stirring the pot" is not the same as "being purposefully inflammatory and insulting".
