    Hmm. I have to say yes, I figure I can act more friendly and nice in my sock, but I act my normal and mean self in this account. :p

    I don't really use a sock. I say what I want to say with this screen name. I'm not a belligerant (did I spell that right?) person and enjoy saying what I think. If people don't agree, so be it. No need to disguise who I am.

    I don't use socks, what's the difference anyway? The Mods can still trace it back to you.

    Nah, I only use socks for fun stuff and games...I don't think I would be more able to speak my mind with one, because in most cases, people don't take socks very seriously. Instead of trying to preserve my reputation by using a sock to vent, I would rather just keep such trivial things to myself. :)

    No, I just use my sock (or socks [face_mischief] ) for silliness. It, or they, never enter into serious debates. :D

    No, because then it really doesn't show who it's coming from. I have no socks, never will. My reason is simple: there's no need. If I think that something I say will piss people off, and it isn't important, I don't need to say (or type) it. But if it's going to annoy people because my opinion differs from theirs, well, screw that.

    These are my opinions. Feel free to bash them as you wish. And have a good day!

    Nope.
    If I have something to say, I might as well say it with this name.

    No. I do not need to hide behind something to feel safe making my opinions known. I don't believe in hiding my face. That would mean that I am afraid of what others think of me, and have to make sure nobody knows who I am when I state my opinion. I have to give my opinion so that people know it's me, and can get to know me. If they don't know it's me with the opinions, then they don't know me. I'm not afraid to make my opinions known. I don't have to hide. Do you?

    Yes and no; I would feel more able to, like everyone else, if it weren't for those blasted IP adress traces... and I would also feel more safe with a sock if my parents went on TF.N :p

    No, I only have one sock, and it's a halloween one. If I want to tell someone something, I'm not going to hide behind something.

    If I wanted to speak my mind, I would do it only with this user-name.

    I only have one sock ( GauntletSock ) and it's only been used when I've been banned for failing to "Run the Gauntlet"

    Know that was a fun game. :D We're ready for Gauntlet 5 :D
