On how (not) to be a sockpuppet
Dear Southern Gospel Performers Who’ve Discovered Sockpuppetting,
If you are going to sockpuppet my comments threads in order to give the appearance that “ordinary fans” have just so happened to show up and support the comments left by the “real” performer you, probably best not to use the same IP address for both comments (y’all know who you are). It makes you look a little desperate.
Plus, your snarky, snipey sockpuppet comments pretty much completely undercut your “real” efforts to appear as though you read criticism of your group and just laugh it off. This sort of thing only reinforces all the worst stereotypes about thin-skinned amateurs in southern gospel trolling the internet and igniting flame wars when they should be off somewhere learning how to sing better.
PS: Other than that, stop by any time!Email this Post
