Name names. If it was a Zephram Stark sock, for
example, then that is
absolutely as it should be.
Indeed. It's often most efficient to mass-revert the sock's edits then
go back and make the good ones again under one's own name. In
practice, this saves other admins tracking the sockpuppeteer having to
check each edit. It also nullifies gaming by trolls who say "no, no,
my sock made three good edits!" "That's nice, dear. Go away."
