Blankfist's new sock puppets
Looks like blankfist has 5 sockpuppets.
playhousepals posted this video
http://videosift.com/video/Kitten-Afraid-of-Vacuum
and the first 4 comments are also sock puppets.

I went to one of the profies.... it read "I love cats and puppets" so I instabanned that puppet.
IMHO the same should be done to the other 4 remaining puppets.

These puppets are here to harass Issykitty and DystopianFutureToday. If you read the comments you can judge for yourself.

I fully understand now why @choggie didn't like @blankfist... the dude has issues.

Good morning Worm your honour
The crown will plainly show
The prisoner who now stands before you
Was caught red handed

when you guys say sock puppets, that's like ghost accounts, right?

The timing is highly suspicious... and this has happened right after someone gave out dft's number on Reddit by the way, so I am not taking any chances. @marinara and @eric3579 and @deathcow agree that this is serious enough to merit attention.

all the puppets say the same things
at the same time of day
with somewhat similar profiles,
and have similar birthdays

and post on issykitty's profile when they have just joined videosift yesterday.
what are the odds of 4 different accounts posting comments within 45 minutes of each other?

Just had another look at the behind the scenes member information and there is no evidence of sock puppetry - but of course that all can be faked with the right amount of diligence. If this is a sock puppet campaign it's pretty obsessive to the point of being pathological. If we'd like to ban these people on our suspicions - I say we put it to a community vote.

Just so all information is out here.

I sent a message to @silverpoint16's account on Youtube and received a reply from silverpoint16's Youtube account confirming that the Youtube account and our silverpoint are the same people.

I also am Extremely Suspicious and have noted the behavior of all of the following defendants as most likely sock puppets.

@silverpoint16
@PlayhousePals
@beekinder
@pumkinandstorm
@jazzy77

BUT, there is still a small possibility that all are innocent people who coincidentally all started accounts at the same time--all upvote and comment on each others videos en masse--all show a high degree of knowledge of the ins and outs of the sift--and all have gone out of their way to poke at dft and Issy.

I don't know how much probability is needed to preemptively ban an account--I would always feel that I might have maligned an innocent person. If--IF--the silverpoint16 who has a videosift account is the woman from Canada who puts video cameras on her cats I would love to have her around--she seems very cool.

If this is the work a one person that is a very, very sad and unhinged person.
