  • Please do not interact with nor aid a sockpuppeting troll such as Super Why fan 105 (sockpuppet account of Zach618, aka Super Why fan 102) for he is banned from other wikis for harassment, spamming, trolling & unapologetically making confusing bad redirects.

    • It's just that I didn't know that he was a bastard troll. He only asked me to put in a video from YouTube on a Rumplestiltskin page from Super Why! I didn't know how, and he said go to YouTube and upload it there. I told him no, and he threatened to do it or he will kill me.

    • & it still proves that sockpuppetry (like identity theft) is still a sign of weakness, irresponsibility, avarice & even cowardice. So many poor misguided fools like that boy have not learned that lesson & they understand nothing. They always end up in trouble.

    • What is sock puppetry, anyway? I never heard of it.

    • I'm glad you asked that question.

      From I read & understand, a sockpuppet is a phony name or false identity created by an online user to argue, bully or review products as another person. Sockpuppets have a long and storied history; they were once well-known for responding to their own Usenet or blog posts. Nowadays, they also post on social media sites and even review their own work on Amazon.com.

      The word "sockpuppet" stems from its literal meaning, which refers to a puppet created by placing a sock over one's hand. The origins of the term imply that the disguise is generally crude and unsophisticated.

      In the U.K., the term sockpuppet recently garnered a lot of press when acclaimed criminal writer R.J. Ellory admitted to giving his own work glowing reviews on Amazon.com, while slamming books by other authors. The practice is believed to be widespread among authors because Amazon and similar sites lack the resources to police user identities.

      A key benefit of the Internet is the ability to remain anonymous, but while sockpuppetry has ethical implications, a few sockpuppets also have faced legal trouble for harassment, criminal impersonation and computer fraud. These cases raise significant legal challenges because while sockpuppets have no constitutional rights, their puppeteers do have the right to freedom of speech.
