You really need to try harder otherwise it's just pointless.

At least come up with some sort of character traits other than numpty newbie or johnny foreigner.

Your poor attempts are making cyberfool look like the new chico.

Quality not quantity please.

Indeed. Take a leaf out of my book. Some of my more established sockies are well known and loved "characters" on CUK.

Never really noticed. But in general if you (one) dishes out gyp, then one can expect some back, rather like emptying a slop bucket to windward on a breezy day in the Channel.

I think we should have a game where we guess who owns each suckpuppet, and then Admin can confirm who has the most correct answers.

The winner gets his choice of wome(a)n from here.

EO Posted : Am I the only one who thinks the whole sockpuppet idea is rotten ?

No, I also think the same as well.

I'm rather ashamed to admit that about 3 years ago, I created a sockie, but after about 3 posts, it just felt morally wrong and weird to pretend to be someone else, especially when other people wasted their time replying to his posts.

I thought to myself, this ain't right and it's morally dubious at the least. Borderline Schizophrenia at the worst.

So I let it lapse and I've played fair and honest ever since. This is my only account that I use.

And I'm quite happy for the Mods to confirm this if asked. (ie...it's not a double bluff or anything of that calibre. I'm above that sort of chicanery. Also, thinking ahead, if I ever create another sockie (which I won't), I give permission for the Mods to announce it immediately.)

Horrible though It may sound, I do believe Chico was real.

I did socks on occasions but could never resist the urge to totally ham it up, there was some women who kept growing bum cheeks, a mad Muslim and a poor black guy fro' de Mississipi Delta who kep on sayin' praise de lawd. Why he was posting on CUK I have no idea.

Morally wrong? What dat?

TykeMerc
6th August 2009, 20:53
I find the current rash of sockpuppets thoroughly boring.

Mind you I'll never understand why people make sockpuppets when their prime ID is already an alias.

I'd be quite happy to see them all banned along with a temp ban for their owners.

RC posted : And I feel so much better getting that off my chest.

Joking aside, that's not funny and I don't appreciate another poster pretending to be me, or trying to mislead others by doing so.

And Xog...the "Praise De Lawd" dude was funny and quite obviously you, as you had used the phrase under your own login somewhere IIRC.

I see a recurring theme.


I don't get the humour in the statement about licking the chutney spoon.

I think a lot of people are being a bit hysterical about a simple question, and using it to their own spiteful purposes to humiliate Cyberman.

What a nice Forum this has become. :mad
