    Members please read Rule 16:

    When a member is found to using a duplicate account they will be banned for 7 days for the first infraction. The member will be permanently banned for the second penalty.

    This rule has become necessary because members have been creating new accounts to bump their Ads to get around the 7 day bump rule.

    Sockpuppets are one of the rudest offenses a member can commit against an online community

    Hey Trlsmn, I've got to agree with intoodeep, the laughing part, don't know why but it caught me off guard...sockpuppet indeed!

    On a serious note, most of the people here abide by the rules and for someone to take advantage of an anonymous forum for nefarious/missleading purposes...banned!:whip:

    I always called them Troll accounts.

    Sockpuppet seems nice and cuddly.

    Yeah, but there is something about the image of someone having a serious conversation with this guy while trying to impress everyone that makes me snicker.

    Member: Hey everyone, I have this Jennings for sale only $650!

    Sockpuppet: Wow! That's a great price!

    Member: Yeah, but I need to sell it fast!

    Sockpuppet: Dang! I WISH I had the money...

    Agreed, but people who use sockpuppets are creepy in their own way. It's a grown up man having a SERIOUS conversation with his hand! :laugh:

    Funny aside, using a sockpuppet account is very underhanded and dishonest. It won't be tolerated.

    But a troll is different. That's someone, perhaps just one, not multiples, saying provocative things just to stir up trouble then sit back and watch for entertainment value.

    Derives not from 'trolling for fish' but that nasty troll that lives under the bridge.

    That's not true! Everyone knows that trolls are the helpful people on internet forums. Troll comes from the latin term "trolia" which is translated "to help".

    Also, the sky is green, water is dry, and gun control works. :winkkiss::p

    Troll hunting is tasked to a different squad of elite hunters... you can usually spot them by their volatile postings initiated only to watch the resulting flame wars from a safe vantage point. Akin to tossing a grenade into a room just to see what happens. :eatpop:
