"Read your comments about trolls. What about people who get banned and come back with a new username?"
I had this question via PM and thought it would be useful to answer publicly.

Sockpuppetry is a term specifically used for someone who creates a second account to misbehave and deceive readers. If you've been banned you can come back and create another account and start again. As a consideration to us and as a way to create a positive re-start, it would be wise to approach the mods to inform us that you wish to post here again and have a fresh start under a new name. We will be following you and waiting to see if there is trouble again but suspicions would be less if we have positive communication with you.
Anyone want to be friends on Facebook?
