    One possibility is that they think any criticism of their work is wrong, and by praising themselves they seek to right that wrong.

    I do find the psychology interesting. I play chess online, and the chess website puts up a list of accounts banned for computer cheating - it's about 20 per day, continuous throughout the year.

    Here will we sit, and let the sounds of music
    Creep into our ears: soft stillness and the night
    Become the touches of sweet harmony.

    Yeah, but you know a lot. I hear a whole lot of questions and the answer is usually "Nobody Knows". You may not be a somebody, but you're a know-it-all Nobody!

    astroannie about says it here.

    I see it like this, after I got over my shock of sock puppetry, I decided there are two types, maybe more but I think they would be sub categories of these. One, is those who want notoriety, the other is mischievous content. To brake these two down, the notoriety person gains the prestige through their comments and others who agree with them. The mischievous people do it simply to cause havoc within the sight. Like posting comments which flame or hog the post. I have seen these types where a person will flame a comment and feed this fire they started with non constructive and strictly combative attitude.

    I must admit I have been sucked into some of the posts by these people. I also have reacted personally to legit comments because I have taken them to heart. (I hope I have, rectified those moments of personal misconduct.) These people, who do this in multiple accounts, can desperately hinder a legit thread where a person can gain insight to their shortcomings in what ever field they are seeking help. Because of the garbage which has been strewn in the flaming manner.

    I recall a post where a person wrote a line on capitalizing the word "Dad". The person whom declared it wrong, boasted of being a journalist and having published many articles and having a higher education. This person flatly denied that "Dad" can be capitalized unless it starts a sentence. Myself and many others disagreed with them, and what should have been a pleasant question and answer post turned into a heated debate over an off topic issue.

    I have seen in article comments section of Yahoo and Google news, to "not feed the pig". Meaning to not rise to the flamer and other disrupting influences within the comments sections. I find it difficult to practice not defending logic and professionalism, in other words not rising to the bait of the flamer.

    Well, this must be a something I have been bugged about. I have written so much here.

    Think I'll write a story in which I realize to my horror that I am a sock puppet.
