Scott Adams, Sockpuppet

Laura Hudson analyzes Dilbert cartoonist Scott Adams recent embrace of sockpuppetry as a tool: “[H]e lied to us on the internet in order to hide his obvious personal
agenda and conflict of interest. But it’s OK, because all he was trying
to do was hide his obvious personal agenda and conflict of interest.
Really, he was just very concerned that you wouldn’t be able to
understand him by looking at the actual context of the situation, so he
helpfully removed it through the “tool” of deceit.” (Salon has more).
