MrsJoseph | 3364 comments So, there is an IP that keeps creating sock puppets specificity for this listopia:
http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/20...

Can a GR staff member please help?? My personal preference would be an IP block but I don't know if that's possible.

We've already reported the initial 30 sock puppets...and it looks like another 53 sockpuppets have popped up today.

Eventually, even the GR staff will get sick of the sock puppet attack...which is why I would love it if the IP could be blocked.

This is the thread where the rest of the sock puppets have been reported: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/9...

mlady_rebecca | 2048 comments Don't know if it's related or not, but that's one of the Listopias that I keep getting 504 Gateway timeouts on.

I would just hope that someone on the GR Staff would assist.

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) | 7 comments I also posted out to this topic http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/1... . I'm too new a librarian to know what we can/cannot do wiith the listopia stuff. I am sure the accounts and the ip address issue is something gr staff has to handle.
