Identifying the sock puppets/troll networks is not easy. Can it be done? Yes. How? Mining.
Just to keep it simple.What the site operators would have to do is make the star and flag system identifiable.
So if one wanted to know who flagged. Click the flag and a list of names appears. Same for the star system.
This is how you can mine out the sock puppets/troll and their networks.
A method like this has been implemented at liveleak. Though I doubt that site is using a sock puppets/troll miner. I have seen the source for a sock
puppet/troll miner. It was made in china.
