Thread : So who are these Sock Armies ?

VileWords : I have just looked at this book (Murder on Anonomy) – so far, there have been over 800 backings in the last week, yet most of the backers have no profile, no book up, no avi . . what gives ? Are these just a load of phantom members ? Do they even exist ?
UnHinged : They don’t have to have a book up in order to back. We need readers, after all.
VileWords : No, but they don’t come across as genuine readers either – the only other book some of them have on their shelves is another newbie ‘Evening Out’ . . plus nearly all these backers signed up on the same day . . .something smells of rat to me . .
