Blogger who does best job of ghost-writing different "people" who "comment" at blogger's blog?
(B) Chris Floyd
(C) John Michael Greer
(D) Michael J. Smith
(E) Tom Feeley
When grading the above candidates, please consider the number of "different personalities" ghost-written, the names chosen for the "different personalities," and the images attached to the respective puppets.
Please also consider which blogger writes under his/her own actual name. Those who do, those who can be identified in meatspace by the name under which they blog, by an actual physical address for home, and by an actual verifiable background supporting the "wisdom" he/she shares on that blog, should receive greater weight for ersatz authenticity, balancing against their sock puppetry skills.
Negative scoring shall be attached to those bloggers who imagine themselves doing a satire or parody, yet who fail mightily at such striving.
Positive scoring shall be granted to those bloggers who, despite imagined satirical/parodic content, ironically are doing little more than exacerbating the problems about which the blogger pontificates.
Also, please be aware that the true king of sock puppetry is not in the running. This contest is more about discerning who is the next-best sock Geppetto -- please identify the blogger who, in your view, best emulates the true king's practice.
Finally, please do not confuse this poll's focus with any person's habitual practice on such formats as facebook, twitter or reddit. Several of the candidates may have a sideline of sock puppetry on one of these non-applicable formats, but such sideline activity does not count in this poll.
