I'm sorry that this may be a rewrite of Sockpuppet Personas, however this thread asks how many socks an editor has, why, how they slipped from detection etc. BTW I have 130+ sockpuppets and 278+ vandalous IPs. All were done day-by-day. I scored 5 edits with each sockpuppet.

I dislike much this term "sockpuppet". One has as many accounts as one needs for different purposes.

Evidently you have read little of what I have posted while others have read much. I have great experience on Wikipedia helping clients and of course I cannot reveal my accounts or the articles involved in that. I joined here in hope to find more about Wikipedia and indeed have learnt many and diverse things.


Emphasis mine.

"Have a prob wit dat?" = "Do you have a problem with that?"

Just out of interest, Fusion, what are your wages? I imagine a paid editor only gains £15/hour in the UK, where I live...

Let us see. Eight hours a day, five days a week and maybe 45 weeks a year after holidays. That is 15 x 8 x 5 x 45 or £27,000 a year. Indeed that is less than I earn but is not a poverty wage I feel.

And if you are an employee you are entitled to have holiday pay on top of that. It wouldn't be a brilliant salary in London but would be ample to jog along with in many parts of the country. What do you earn, Guy Fawkes?
