I'm honestly trying to remember, but it's kind of vague.

@the sockpuppets. It's not shameful to post on RSP on your main account, even if you're a Trump voter.

Try it!

Well, I think for a while Trey had a puppet to berate Europeans for being pussies since they don't own enough guns. Otherwise, the nerdraging gamer guy who shut his account now has 3 separate puppets going. Someone has a puppet to riff Tesuji. That's as much as I've noticed. So not that many.

I think you are being unfair about the whole thing. This election, we have the classiest sock puppets ever. You go back to when Ross Perot was running, there weren't even sock puppets at all. I mean, the internet? Nobody bothered with it back then. And Ross Perot had big ears. We all know what people say about guys with big, goofy ears.

Emphasis mine.

I'm not convinced this is a new phenomenon. I'd be quite curious if this perception has way more to do with the internet age making these incidents more visible than actual reality.

No proof at this time, though.

What is considered a sock puppet though?

As far as I´m concerned then anyone not posting under their own name is choosing to do so as an anon no matter how much they use their account.

I´m cool with it, it encourages free speech.

Iunno man, it's freaking RSP.

If you don't feel free to support any position, that's on you, at least in here.

Being afraid to express your actual opinions doesn't so much encourage free speech as it reflects the way that people restrict their own speech all the time, unwilling to post what they really believe.

Look for 'new users' who appear suddenly and aggressively post on RSP.

That is not the same as using two accounts to post political views.

What are you talking about? Free speech?! Right, like you fucking libtards know what THAT is. The lot of you are running around accusing us of being Islamophobic or homophobic. What does that last eve mean anyway? I'm not AFRAID of gay people. Ridiculous!

If only you people had spent less time silencing the right with your PC tactics and microaggressions. You really deserve Trump and worse. Free people can only take so much of your trampling on the rights of free Americans.

Silencing is not calling peoples names, if it was why are you calling people names?

I refuse to be silenced by your posting. I have heard tell of thee. You litter this forum with your posts, mainly aimed at conservative posters, thereby diluting our voices. This shall not stand!


I wonder how many of you idiot sock puppeting douchenozzles understand that we can just look at the geek gold transfers you do to figure out who you are.

And that is why I am so great. My sock puppet isn't being influenced by outside GeekGold. In fact, I am going to buy an avatar with someone else's GeekGold. And when somebody says "Pay for that avatar yourself," I say "The avatar just got ten pixels taller!"
