  • (verb) Sockpuppeting: Registering multiple usernames and pretending they are not you, for the purposes of making oneself look more popular online and/or causing drama.

    (noun) a sockpuppet is a fake persona utilized for the above purposes. Sometimes people make them as a joke and troll their friends' journals with them.

    Not sure if this originated on LiveJournal but it's used there with great frequency.
