Sock puppets are not against the rules of TFS.

TOS 3.19 is the only reference you will find in the TOS to sock puppet accounts. That says simply that you can not create sock puppet accounts to get around a ban. Doing so will result in a permanent ban of the sock puppet account, and serving out the remainder of the original ban.

If you believe a user is a sock puppet, you're welcome to ask a mod to check into it, but the mods will not reveal to you if you are correct or not. Action will NOT be taken if there are merely 2 accounts for an individual who is not banned.

Please do NOT make accusations towards another user.

Update:
TOS has been changed and 3.27 has been added:
Members agree not to:
Repeatedly and publicly accuse other members of being "sock puppets" or having multiple identities on the forum site without checking with a moderator.

So, as the OP states, sock puppets, or multiple accounts are allowed unless there is a ban in effect. If you think that a person is using a second account to get around a ban, then report it to a moderator and we will look into it.

Please do not accuse someone of it publicly, as this will only result in you getting in trouble, this rule does apply to TFS+.
