One Sad Individual's Sock Puppet Army

204 Comments

So, like many of you, I watched the user TedGinnIsFasterThanYou repeatedly violate the comment policy over the weekend, insulting other users, getting political and doing just about whatever possible to be a shitty member of this community.

You guys took care of business, downvoting comments that crossed the line and TedGinnIsFasterThanYou was teetering on the edge of bandom—and then a funny thing happened. From a Helmet Sticker balance of -42, the account started to accumulate upvotes. Nearly 50 upvotes in less than a half hour. But how could this be?

As it turns out, TedGinnIsFasterThanYou was one of 10 accounts created by a single user, with new email accounts tied to each one, and all traced to the same IP address in Pennsylvania. The accounts, showing their status earlier this evening:

17725 TedGinnIsFasterThanYou 7/15/2014 Active

Seven of the 10 accounts have long since been banned for inappropriate behavior and/or falling below the commenting threshold. All three active accounts held by this individual have now been banned as well. I'm sorry to report: 9Route, like the cake, was a lie.

I noticed late last night he was giving himself up votes to try and dig himself out of the hole he dug for himself. When that didn't work, Ted Ginn went to a post dating back to early March and started spamming it, earning a single HS per post. Thank you for sorting this out.

I'm a little disturbed. Not only did he have 10 accounts, he seemed to have 10 personalities. I'm not sure if he's a psychopath or just really lonely. I can honestly remember a lot of those accounts, and they all seemed to have individual personalities.

Im surprised he was able to do such a good job getting around the system as the security here is pretty tight. One thing I like here is how you have a "cooling off" period for any new members so it takes a couple days to get your login credentials as this eliminates trolls who just come over to write some garbage after a loss or after a big recruit commits. By the time it takes to get the login those type of people have lost interest.

In addition, I have a good story here as to when I applied for a user id here. I applied for the same user id as I have over at mgoblog (where I am also a reasonable poster) and I quickly learned that Jason must cross-check against mgoblog user id's. After a few days of not hearing anything back about getting login credentials, I sent a message to check on the status. I received a nice message from Jason back that I was denied as all the message said was: "The simplest answer is that we reached our UM fan quota for this quarter. Please try again later." My email account was a generic gmail account so the only way he could have possibly known I was Michigan fan was checking that user id against mgoblog names. A few months later I wanted to comment on another article so i tried again (with a new user id) and it worked.

I agree, way too much hype for someone who rarely posted. I'm not a hater, as there are a lot of guys on here who deserve the love and always have insightful comments or like Earle, have a razor-sharp wit. The whole Jeff Greene thing was classic, but other than that, I never saw what was so great about the guy. I admit that I never spoke out before because I knew his myth had reached kind of a Robin Hood-esque level and I figured going against the herd would just end in down-votes and tears . . . that and its wasn't a big enough deal to really discuss.

Yea I announced I was forced to change my name and BassDropper still accused every new member for a couple months of being "Colerain 2004 G.O.A.T." Oh well I cant lie and say I never thought old Bass might have had multiple handles.

You seem milder since the name switch. It is strange how that can give certain impressions.

Damn it Cajun now you got me going nuts over the western clip because i have seen that movie and now im trying to rememeber the name of it. That will bug me for days now till i figure it out and i have a bad habit when talking to someone when i have been trying to place a movie.

I will all the sudden out of nowhere shout out the name of the movie because it just popped into my head just then.

I get the strangest looks when that happens from people now im going be thinking of that clip till it come's to me. Oh well ill just tell them Fred yelled it out from behind me and ran off,

I wonder if we're being a little overly objective here.

Okay, let's assume that the 9Route "personality" (i.e., subjectively aware entity) shared the same  I.P. address as these other personalities (or internet identities), which in turn were all created by one flesh-and-blood Pennsylvania resident (who only exists, in theory, and in his own mind, but cannot be confirmed to exist in some objective physical reality). Does the bad behavior of these other internet beings (or identities) invalidate the goodness of the 9Route entity? Who's to say that 9Route is even consciously aware that the other identities/personalities exist? Maybe the 9Route personality rescue-upvoted the TenGinnisFast personality because he had strange, inexplicable feeling of connection to TedGinnisfast that he needed to explore more deeply.

If it is true that 9route wasn't aware of his other multiple personalities, he is now! lol

and I'm not sure, but don't multiple personalities all have different ideas, wants and likes? so what you are saying is that "john doe" has 10 different personalities (sorry, 11 including the tramp stamp) that all like Ohio State and 8 of the 11 enjoy trolling doubleonedoubleu?

and for the previous commentors thoughts that multiple people might live at the same residence, 9route should have known and should have done something after the first couple of troll accounts.

at least we can still follow him of twitter. ;)

Run_Fido_Run's picture

Yes, that's a great point. Maybe now 9Route has become better acquainted with his other personalities (or housemates? or identity thieves?). It's painful to be banned from 11W, but perhaps now 9Route is closer to shedding his chimerical cocoon (which must have felt like a cyber straitjacket) and now he can be reborn as truly autonomous 9Route?

Let's wish 9Route well on his path of self-discovery.

It would be hilarious if we let 9route stay active, see how long he lasts. Maybe we can all just learn to deal with 9route.... pretend he isn't bipolar. Better yet change his name to 9accounts.

9Routing needs to be a verb for this now. When someone who has been here for half the time I have ends up with twice the helmet stickers, I'm just going to rationalize it with "They are probably 9Routing it"

Wow me and a couple other posters tried to point this out when RickKanewashere went on an absolute tear a month or so back. He was calling posters bannable names and receiving 3-4 upvotes immediately while those arguing with him received 3-4 DV's. Hopefully this will be a lesson for the others on here that have multiple accounts and use them to skate the system. Great job Jason.

If anyone else was on the ESPiN message boards before they shutdown, there was a dude there who supposedly had hundreds of screen names over the course of years.  Many of which acted differently and he replied to himself in threads.  I think his name was Stevie.  Personally, I think it was a cover for Mark May.
