  •  That sockpuppet's date of creation is (3+ / 0-)

    today, Aug 21, and its very first and only comment is one that implicates the alleged sockpuppet owner.  Seems too pat, too convenient.

    And why would Reggid make a sockpuppet just today?  What purpose would it serve?  None.  I've seen enough cop/lawyer shows to know that an accusation needs to supply means, motive, and opportunity to carry much weight.  You've not provided a motive.  What's the motive for Reggid, after five years, to suddenly create a sockpuppet today?

    I see that the admins bojoed the sockpuppet, but Reggid's account is alive and well, so the admins don't appear to have bought the idea the Reggid was the one that created the sockpuppet account.

      A.  Desperation and stupidity.

        Despite the way he tripped over his own sockpuppet, Reggid was not stupid. Though anyone following his recent career can see, he can be gloriously pigheaded.

        Anger undid Reggid. He got so caught up in the heat of battle, he stopped being careful, he lost track of which account he was posting from.

        Tony Situ defending Reggid here, and Moravan just upthread, and Hey338Too, uprating Reggid's lies - they're probably not stupid either. Just a little gullible, prejudiced toward their friend, and blinded by their resentment of all those "Greenwaldian bullies" who gave Reggid such a hard time, demanding that he argue fairly and honestly.
