Socks & Puppets

Postby Cornuck » Wed Jun 18, 2014 9:20 am

A few changes are coming to the Corner.

For now, it's time to clean out the sock drawer. Any account that is an obvious or suspected sock will be disabled later this week. If you are worried that your real account might be in jeopardy, PM me and state your case.

I've allowed it until now due to the lack of real hockey news. With the upcoming draft, free agency, new coach etc in the coming weeks, it's time to clean things up.

With all due respect, your proclamation sounds like some sort of Kangaroo Court ran in a location like North Korea -- not Canada or the United States of America for that matter.

If you believe an account is "obvious" you should be able to easily provide compelling evidence that shows beyond a reasonable doubt that said account is, for a fact a "sock" if the (alleged) "sock" believes he/she has been charged with that offense he/she didn't commit and wants to show he/she is "innocent" or "not guilty."

This should be done in the public sphere among a jury of his peers. Not fellow (suspected socks) ...... but from a pool of long-time, "respected" members of CC Hall of Fan not "suspected"' of having "sock" accounts.

Furthermore, will there be penalties levied against those individuals here who have been on a witch-hunt that have publicly falsely accused other(s) here of having a sock account (as implied tacitly in this very own thread) when they are exposed to be more wrong than the Mayor of Wrongville? :mex:

This is an oxymoron.

Aaron, have you or have you not been wrong about posting about rumor, speculation and innuendo before? With all due respect, prepared to be wrong for a second time. :mex:

Nope, you're wrong.

But, what else is new.

There isn't a court in the land that would have a case against me, kangaroo or otherwise. ;)

duh, Betamax exposes others for who they really are. You could say, Betamax is, duh, the Jonathan Toews of Canucks' Messageboards.

Now, Aaron, if you subscribe to the theory/rumor/innuendo that Betamax is a "sock" of another poster, are you brave (or foolish) enough to name a name?

Here is the definition I am using via wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sockpuppet_%28Internet%29

A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term, a reference to the manipulation of a simple hand puppet made from a sock, originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an Internet community who spoke to, or about, themselves while pretending to be another person.[1] The term now includes other misleading uses of online identities, such as those created to praise, defend or support a person or organization,[2] or to circumvent a suspension or ban from a website. A significant difference between the use of a pseudonym[3] and the creation of a sockpuppet is that the sockpuppet poses as an independent third-party unaffiliated with the puppeteer. Many online communities attempt to block sockpuppets.


What say you? :mex:

p.s. My hair is tidy. 8-)
