We know there are a lot of sock puppets out there. A number were created when the site was having technical difficulties. We also understand people can forget passwords, not have the same email address to reset etc.

What we are proposing is that those who have them either post here or PM me, so we can merge or delete them. I will also be prompting a number of members when a sock puppet associated with their name is flagged - they can't be hidden, but we'd rather clear up them voluntarily first.

The only exception from the amnesty is those used for trolling, which will result in having both or all accounts banned.
