POLL DESCRIPTION

A recent news story at TMP showed a link between a major manufacturer and several anonymous member accounts ("sock puppets" in internet slang). The accounts were used to praise the company's products, and to criticize competitors and disgruntled customers.

Sock puppets traced to Black Tree

"So, was this an isolated event," writes dapeters, "or something that is occasionally happens on the TMP boards?"

How often do you think that sock-puppeting occurs at TMP?
