    I started this thread because it seems to me that some of the "new members" that have shown up here recently are actually sock puppets...

    No, really? You think so?
    Lets think about this. MTBR has recently landed the ban hammer on dozens of highly talented internet jocks. They have further disenfranchised dozens more with unreasonable and unexplained suspensions. You don't think they are going to find new ways to get back on? Or find ways to let their true feelings be known with out endangering their true online identities? To think differently is just plain naive.

    To be completely honest, I kind of feel left out by not having my own sock puppet, just so I can beat on MTBR even harder without risking banishment.

    Absolutely. MTBR has pissed away dozens of high quality forum members through irrational banishments and suspensions. If they come back via sock puppets, then great. But I don't think revealing the socks benefits them in any way.
    If anything, this thread should serve to further confuse the MTBR admins and mods into wondering who really is a sock and who isn't.

    Yeah, that too. Sock puppets are a reality on MTBR. There is no secret. They should be "accepted" by the big-wigs.

    Creating sock accounts is bullshlt and besides being juvenile (what, are you 12??), takes away from any respect/kinship of the original user acct. and you end up just being a TROLL

    Yep. You're clearly a sock puppet used for posting controversial political stuff. Your true identity posts up the poop jokes. Maybe you are Nicole's sock puppet.

    Sodak, when someone shows up as a new member but seems mysteriously familiar in character or with how things work around here or with what's been going on in OC lately, take those things as a sign. They generally troll right from the get go, too but the sneaky ones just try to blend in at first. Then, little by little, the signs start to appear...

    Hawg- I figured right away Yosemety was a sock. I have noticed quite a few new accounts lately and figured they were socks too. I am well aware of them and enjoy them actually. It always turns into a bit of a frenzy, some fun threads, then a witch hunt and then the banhammer. I mean, as dumbed down and restricted as MTBR has been getting the past few years, it's one of the few things that bring interest and action around here. I find it funny to say the least.

    Not so much a witch hunt. Usually somebody gets really obnoxious and obvious. If it was a witch hunt, there would be more bans and no socks and we all know that's not true.

    ^ So you're saying that sock puppets are actually made of wood?

    Edit: Crap, didn't even watch the video to see if that reference was in there. And it wasn't. So here's the rest of that video.

    My only problem with socks is that if the sock is a former member who made a very public display of "mtbr sucks and I'm outta here" or "I'm going to keep prodding the mods until I'm banned" then smell ya later. Don't come back as some sock, even if it's just to have some fun. You think mtbr sucks, and you called for a break-up, stay away.

    However, if you think mtbr sucks and stick around to make good-natured cracks about it sucking without drawing too much ire from the mods, then I'm A-okay.

    Clever socking by current, active, harmless-trolling members, I'm more forgiving of. But the rules say, no socking, so I don't get emotional when the ban hammer swings.

    Actually he told you one of his other Sock Puppet identities, (Justamember) also now banned.
    He made the mistake of posting photos of his bike and truck in on of Fuglio's threads.... and it was indeed MountainBiker123.
    He'll be back.... again, and again, and again.
    Posting on the basis that ignorance shared is ignorance doubled.

    Just another example of do-gooder America trying to even the playing field. Which sock is going to stand up for America when the commies come calling? None of ya's, that's who.
