    Who is creating the sock accounts?

    Wouldn't it be better to expose who is creating the sock account, when they are suspended to help prevent it from being repeated?

    If someone is playing constant games with frequent socks then it changes the trust factor.

    What I recall from years as mod was there were only a couple of accounts that kept repeating one being an abhorrent racist--I think he gave up. Mostly it's someone who got banned trying to return surreptitiously.* Sometimes it's a member creating a counter account, an account that represents views counter to his and does so ever more outrageously.


    *No ban is really permanent. If you contact mods and promise to behave, you'll be allowed back, and that will be announced.

    I suspected this was one... the ridiculousness of their supposed 'position' was so archaic and extreme, I could only figure it's how they view anyone with a more traditional conservative outlook.

    This one is predictable and never changes. His very first post was a giveaway. He'd be ok if he wasn't so emotional.

    Frankly, it could be any number of people. His use of the term "colored people" rings a bell. Libhater?
