Boy, do I feel stupid! But I gotta ask: what is a troll, and what is a sock?

It's always a good idea to check the database to see if Cecil or his staff have covered a question.
What is a troll? (http://www.straightdope.com/mailbag/mtroll.html)
A "sock puppet", sometimes called simply a "sock", is a new account that a poster creates so that s/he will have someone to agree with them and hopefully make their points seem more reasonable.
It's sad really.
