Shelley on Sock Puppets and Wikipedia

in a wikipedia deletion debate cum how-it-all-works or w-t-f article that should not be missed.
It is intent to deceive or to dabble in malicious mischief that sets a sock puppeteer apart from a legitimate user with multiple accounts. Sockpuppet accounts are either created deliberately in order to vote multiple times, or to setup “straw man sock puppets” in order to provide weak counter-arguments.

Wait til you get to the meatpuppets!

I'm off to the attic to get my pet.com sock puppet and play along.
