    B.Yes it does sound like some sockpuppet trying to start up some shit about Gale's being unhappy again.


    1. So the sentence A is informal and the sentence B [possesive form] is formal, right??

    I don't know Sockpuppet, either. Is it a slang??
    2. Can I write " I don't know Sockpuppet, too"??
