You may (hint hint) find your answer by viewing the SINBIN forum.

It disappointed me, too. I liked his horn articles in SB/AX, but some people can't seem to follow basic rules.

Bill could never get into the spirit of the board, treating it as a forum for advertising his product... then he went overboard with sock-puppeting. I, unfortuneatly never read his articles with the same respect again -- i found his last article quite over the top...

Pardon me, but what is sock-puppeting?

correct me if im wrong, but sock-puppeting is when you create other accounts or aliases when you are sin-binned (or banned or whatever) to keep posting. basically, using multiple accounts on diyaudio.com

More or less... anytime you create a 2nd account while you have an active one.

In one case Bill was replying to his own posts with a sock-puppet....
