P.S. It is also my opinion that your "Sock Puppet Detector" is laughable as a solution
for identifying SA user names, as you describe it it requires you to physically eyeball a
user coming into a thread then checking it against an access file. WAY too much
manual effort to do that 24x7.

You had the opportunity to read the messages between Dawg and Happy Jack. You
chose not to inform yourself yet continue to make allegations. Nice.
As for my sock puppet detector? It worked just fine. A simple script captured the
thread viewers into a time stamped file. The web pages received very few hits. It took
only a few minutes to cross reference the hits by time stamp with who was viewing the
thread at that moment. But thanks for your concern about me wasting my time.
Knowing who is who completely changes the way you read the forum.
Posting under multiple IDs at the same time is very deceptive. Happy Jack has no
aliases. Happy Jack does not delete his posts. Happy Jack does not edit his posts.
Considering the number of people using aliases that don't seen to warrant your
condemnation I don't give your comments much weight.

Why would I want to log in to your username to read your e-mails. That's just creepy.
Next thing I know I'm getting accused of hacking your account or some such crap; I
simply don't trust you enough to take you up on your offer thank you very much.
You want me to see something, forward it. I'll trust you far enough to assume you
wouldn't edit Dawg's words. I know Dawg, he's been to my house and I helped him
when he was in town for a regatta years ago so I trust that he'd verify anything I asked
him.
I'm not a big fan of sock puppets and I've expressed that repeatedly. I've expressed it
to Sol R. to his face when we've met up in the real world, as well as in e-mails when I
think he's pushing it too hard.
However you know just as well as I do that someone creating a sock puppet with no
real attempt at deception just to tweak noses or make a humorous point is entirely
different that someone pretending to BE a completely different person with
