A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception.[1] Many English Wikipedia editors refer to them as "socks", and "strawman socks" are sometimes created to disrupt a community.[2] Sockpuppets can make online polling difficult, since it is difficult to create an online system where each account corresponds to a single flesh-and-blood human being.
