Re: Since wikipedia banned me, I've been accused of sock puppetry!

He kept asking people to answer a bunch of questions about some objection he had, and the administrators got frustrated and banned him.

A Sock Puppet (according to wiki): A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception within an online community. In its earliest usage, a sockpuppet was a false identity through which a member of an Internet community speaks with or about himself or herself, pretending to be a different person,[1] like a ventriloquist manipulating a hand puppet.

In current usage, the perception of the term has been extended beyond second identities of people who already post in a forum or blog to include other uses of misleading online identities. For example, a NY Times article claims that "sockpuppeting" is defined as "the act of creating a fake online identity to praise, defend or create the illusion of support for one's self, allies or company."[2]

The key difference between a sockpuppet and a regular pseudonym (sometimes termed an "alt" which is short for alternate, as in alternate identity) is the pretense that the puppet is a third party who is not affiliated with the puppeteer or acting under their control for their benefit. The earliest known[1] usage of the term was on July 9, 1993 by Dana Rollins in a posting to bit.listserv.fnord-l,[3] but the term was not in common usage in USENET groups until 1996.

When you get banned from a website, a sock puppet is a new account that you create to escape your ban.

Here are my seven questions, which they never answered:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?...wing_questions

Before you possibly ban me, please answer the following questions

Please answer my seven questions regarding the article "Presidency of Barack Obama":

1) There was talk page consensus to have a single sentence about Van Jones resigning after it was revealed that he was a self described "communist" who blamed the 9-11 attacks on the U.S. government. Why should I be punished for adding that info to the article?

2) Please explain why you think the article should mention Obama's actions against offshore drilling, but not his actions in favor of offshore drilling.

3) Also please explain why you think citing Obama's actions against offshore drilling, without simultaneously citing his actions in favor of offshore drilling, does not violate NPOV (Neutral Point of View), which states, "All Wikipedia articles and other encyclopedic content must be written from a neutral point of view, representing fairly, and as far as possible without bias, all significant views that have been published by reliable sources. This is non-negotiable and expected of all articles and all editors."

4) How is it not noteworthy that Obama's choice to head the "Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools" has an extensive history of illegal drug use?

5) If there's going to be a section on Obama's claims of transparency, why shouldn't the section mention cases where Obama was heavily non-transparent?

6) How is Obama's nationalization of General Motors, and firing of its CEO, not notable to the section on Obama's economic policy?

7) How is the questioning of the constitutionality of Obama's czars by two different Senators from Obama's own party, not relevant to the section on those czars?

I thought the Obama related articles were biased because they lacked sufficient criticism, relative to how much praise they had. So I added some true, well sourced criticism. They removed it, and told me not to put it back. I kept adding it anyway. This went on for quite some time, and then eventually, I was banned.

Now they say I have created these new accounts as a way to get around my ban.

I think they should give grundle one hour to make as many edits as he wants, any edits he wants. At the end of that hour, he is banned for life -- but none of his edits can be undone or overwritten.

Re: Since wikipedia banned me, I've been accused of sock puppetry!

You know this reminds me of Weyoun from DS9, how after they killed him over and over again he just kept coming back with more clones, and every time he still had that same pompous, passive-aggressive attitude.
