What is a sockpuppet and what does 1sf (troll) (troll) mean? Please excuse my ignorance.
A "sockpuppet" is a duplicate user account set up by somebody to hide their usual identity.
1sf (troll) is 1slipperyfish (troll)
, one of our friendly user community given to winding up the unwary - and to bad jokes. Something to do with living under Wigan pier and leaping out to eat people, I believe. Indeed, our admins have grown so upset at losing out to his acute banter that they hacked the system to insert "(troll)" after every mention of his name. And they don't even live in Wigan. To avoid that you have to call him Paul (I mean to avoid inserting "troll", not to avoid living in Wigan). If you re-read the first page of this thread, you will see his comments.
So just to clarify, the "troll" is not you but Paul, and the word is automatically inserted by the system.
My apologies for assuming all this was as familiar to you as to us old lags.
