    A little while ago, Statisikhengst called me a sock. He was apparently too busy insulting me to do me the courtesy of defining it.

    Will somebody please tell me what the heck it means to be called a "sock" here?

    Sock means you actually have another account on here.

    I have no idea why people accuse new people of this all the time. Who cares?

    what bonzi said is accurate but really it's essentially a meaningless term used to derail a thread when the one who calls you that is losing the argument.
    sort of how they use "racist" when they are losing a debate and need a handy distraction..

    Thanks. I just wanted to know what it meant. I was able to figure out what some other nomenclature means through repetition, but sock was a new one on me.
