  •   sockpuppet  is an  online identity  used for purposes of deception within an  online community . In its earliest usage, a sockpuppet was a false identity through which a member of an Internet  community speaks with or about himself or herself, pretending to be a different person, [1]  like a  ventriloquist  manipulating a  hand puppet . Trolling - an internet term for a person who willfully, through obscene, offensive or hateful actions (a.k.a. &amp;quot;trolling&amp;quot;), attempts to disrupt a community or garner reactions, attention and controversy. -
