Note that I didn't call anyone a sock-puppet (I explicitly denied doing so). From the wording though, I can see how you might have thought I'd implied it:

"Not to say that you are one, but it's something that I'm reminded of each time I come across these types of situations."

Please remember to respect the fact that others do want what is best, and that disagreements generally only arise from small differences in view on what a good outcome looks like and what the best approach in achieving that outcome might be. Even if you think someone is a sock puppet (and I certainly don't know of anyone who I'd apply that label to here), calling them one to their face isn't going to help.
