Thursday’s open line

I received this wonderful piece of vocabulary enrichment in an email yesterday from a longtime reader:

sock puppet n. A fake persona used to discuss or comment on oneself or one’s work, particularly in an online discussion group or the comments section of a blog. –adj.–sock puppeteer n.–sock puppetry Citations

Is this the price tag of anonymity? Spill your guts on this or anything else on today’s open line.
