A sockpuppet is an extra user account on a bulletin board (or in some other interactive environment) that someone uses to make comments that won't be associated with his or her normal identity. For instance, a user making a controversial statement might use one or more sockpuppet accounts to make additional, supportive posts that appear to come from different users, creating a false impression that multiple users agree with the statement. Users may also use sockpuppets to engage in trollish or forbidden activity, hoping to keep those actions from being associated with their primary user account.

Using a sockpuppet is a bannable offense in the Stardestroyer.Net forums.
