    How to Sock 101
    What is a sock?

    1. Best to have your 'real' blog or website not be similar to your 'fake' blog or website.

    2. Review, Review and then Review again your post before you hit post. Words 'you' use often shouldn't be used on the 'newyou' blog.

    3. Decide who the 'newyou' is and stick to it. Saying you are one thing, which conflicts with what you say in your bio to then editing it out will just help #4 happen faster.

    4. Once you have told one person it is just a matter of time before you will be 'outted'.

    5. IP address are not your friend. Make sure you down load a really, really, really, good program to hide your IP, city and state you post from. Then be really sure you don't post on anyones blog with the 'newyou' where you have posted as the 'realyou'.

    6. Do not cover the same topics in both blogs within days of each other. I won't even get into doing it on three blogs...

    7. Don't sqqquuueee about the same authors on both blogs.

    8. Using completely different graphics and themes would be a good thing.

    9. Read number 5 again. Really important that.... depending on the tracker, the blog owner can see your IP addy, where you posted from, what time you posted, number of hits from your IP, what site you came from, what posts you looked at, what posts you commented on, what city you came from, what service you use and more

    10. Do not 'hang' with anyone at least not for the first few days out of your million years of lurking about but you know, just not posting.

    3. What am I meaning... hmm I think I explain it well enough in my comment here.

      LOL no shit meljean! You know there were two different groups that did this in xfilefic... the debbil mice and the wicked witches.

      Well sort of the same, as their 'real' names were very popular, but they created the socks and the sites and ripped into fic and people they decided were stupid, bad and so forth and so on.

      Of course this was years and years ago before IP tracking and whois.com and all that crap. LOL of course some of them still fucked up and outted themselves.

      And on the mb I mod, we had one person create 17 different 'people' have the main person die and then watched the the drama unfold. LOL nothing like having 15 different built in people to agree with you *g*.

      Another created about 10 and then sent himself off to war. blech I have been on the internet too long...

    6. Yeah, we had the same problem a couple of times over on the comic book boards I administrate -- mostly kids who want someone to support their 'ship, but every once in a while, some jerk who just can't help trolling.

      They had no idea about the IPs. Which suited us well.
