Yet Another Demorea Sock[edit]

Per rules, you can find the SPI discussion here. - NeutralhomerTalk • 12:07 on April 8, 2019 (UTC)

Demorea CUs[edit]

Is there a reason you will not allow a CheckUser to be performed on any Demorea sock? I asked for a CU, you shot it down. I respectfully asked for it again, you archived the page. You have done this in the past with other Demorea SPIs. Why will you not allow other CUs to perform a CU on a Demorea sock? - NeutralhomerTalk • 04:46 on April 9, 2019 (UTC)

AN Thread[edit]

I'm sorry we couldn't work this out on our own. I've brought the Demorea issue to AN and that thread can be found here. - NeutralhomerTalk • 22:06 on April 9, 2019 (UTC)

@QEDK: As you can see from the top of this page, I'm out of here, so I won't be able to respond to your e-mail. Take care.--Bbb23 (talk) 13:42, 15 May 2019 (UTC)

Submit some information about socks[edit]

We can suspect that this IP is used by User-4488. (The possibility is very high) We noticed these and then compared the other parts. act in
This page has I think & should be proxy IP. I think so because they have other connections.
In Sino-Vietnamese_conflicts,_1979 , they edit on this page. Please also pay attention to DemPon.

DemPon, this account has some interesting points. If we track his sandbox at,the editing content of DemPon, Widgetsz89 and Pipcai is exactly the same. These accounts are also used by User-4488.
If you don't believe we can watch the link below.
From the above clues, we can find that he seems to be happy to fight with himself. One person plays multiple people. He seems to want to be an outstanding actor, but I don't think it is a place for performing stage plays.
I think he is having a good time at,_1979%E2%80%931991&action=history and can argue or quarrel with himself.
I think he should have a good time too. I mean If he didn't edit the page edited by, I think he can still hide for a long time.
Because he is a highly skilled actor, I should not catch all his socks. Based on his habit of quarreling or arguing with himself, I think Heathen100 is also suspicious because his habit is to fight with himself.

I am not very clear about whether his editor is harmful or beneficial, but I am sure that more than half of the people who have recently edited Incorporation of Tibet into the People's Republic of China are socks or new account.Maybe socks like that page especially?

Checkuser re. SLBBenfis23[edit]

Symbol redirect vote.svg Moved to Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/PutaCu45. ~ ToBeFree (talk) 14:21, 16 May 2019 (UTC)


Hello, you blocked PredatorAssassin (talk · contribs) indicating that it was a checkuser block. I am reviewing their block. What are your thoughts on extending {{2nd chance}} to this editor? --Chris (talk) 16:24, 16 May 2019 (UTC)

Crazycomputers, Bbb is on vacation, so it may be a bit before he responds. —DoRD (talk)​ 21:37, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@DoRD: I saw the header but figured I'd leave this here anyway. The blocked user can wait; the request is on hold. (Thanks for making sure I knew though.) --Chris (talk) 22:29, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

PrinceofFrancia editing while logged out[edit]

Per this, this, and this, which is the exact same edit made by PrinceofFrancia. Not to mention the removal of references that disagree with his opinion. --Kansas Bear (talk) 21:06, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Another IP used by PrinceofFrancia: --Kansas Bear (talk) 21:20, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Kansas Bear, Bbb23 is on vacation. I blocked the first IP for a week, but the second one is stale for blocking purposes. —DoRD (talk)​ 21:37, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Template:Deo Block[edit]

Hi, would you be able to restore Template:Deo Block? I remember double-checking it, so it should be fine. Thanks! – Uanfala (talk) 11:54, 21 May 2019 (UTC)

When you get back or if someone else is familiar with the sockdrawer[edit]

Or if another admin just wants to help out, as I edit the article:

@5 albert square:, as you blocked one of the accounts in this cluster, Nyaja Aibhlinn (talk · contribs · deleted contribs · page moves · block user · block log), maybe you could lend a hand here? The target, m.o., and writing style, plus the WP:NOTHERE is the same as that account. The only difference is the new one isn't responding on talk. Which I think is in an effort to not have their voice recognized. If you want more details, email. Thanks. - CorbieV 18:43, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

I don't see any current non-stale accounts to check against, however I did block the account as WP:NOTHERE due to soapboxing, personal attacks and carrying on the same behaviour as previous socks.-- Jezebel's Ponyobons mots 19:17, 22 May 2019 (UTC)

Odd user page redirection[edit]

Hi B, what do you make of this: this brand new user redirected their user page to Mishae, an account that's been indeffed, then they redirected their user page to GaiaGirl86, an account that has no contributions at Wikipedia, deleted or otherwise. (How do you even find an account that has no contributions?) That GaiaGirl86 account also created another blank account, WillKomen in 2013, per this. I'm not sure I've seen this sort of weirdness before, so I figured I'd float it past you to see how/if you'd deal with it. Regards, Cyphoidbomb (talk) 14:06, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

I think Bbb23 is away for a bit. GaiaGirl86 and WillKomen appear to be legit accounts of User:Ocaasi, who was apparently using them in 2013 to experiment with TWA. The Ocaasi account explicit links to them here, for example. I'm guessing this new account is a returning troll of some kind, the only explanation I can think of for redirecting to Mishae's page then Ocaasi's legit sock page. No idea if it's actually Mishae; more likely IMHO someone else trying to muddy the waters. I've deleted the user page (confident this is not Ocaasi), put it on my watchlist, but just unsure enough about what's happening or who this is to not block. Bbb23, when he gets back, might look with his Xray goggles, and block if appropriate. If they cause trouble anywhere resulting in a talk page message, I'll see that and block. --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:29, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Duh. Or of course you can too, CB. I've got a script that ID's admins, but it wasn't working for a minute, so I didn't pay attention to who I was replying to. That probably sounded a little patronizing. --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:34, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Duh #2. And I just noticed Bbb23 edited twice today, so maybe he's back and I'm just stepping on toes left and right? Maybe I should just delete this and take a mulligan.... --Floquenbeam (talk) 15:36, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
I was hoping you'd get to Duh #3. :-) It's like taking a vacation from work and finding things piled up on your desk when you get back. I'm trying to catch up, but I also got distracted by some socking that required a significant amount of time to investigate. You didn't know that Cyphoidbomb was an admin? He's a stout fellow and a gentleman. Plus he knows a helluva lot about Indian socks. I'll look at this later as I'm still looking at things that happened while I was away (so many pings).--Bbb23 (talk) 17:09, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
It's not quite that I "didn't know" he was an admin; it's that I saw a post from a name part of my (rapidly deteriorating) brain recognized, but that didn't show up as an admin with my little reminder tool for some reason, and I just went with my subconscious "recognize name as one of good guys" and didn't think further. You wouldn't know anything about rapidly deteriorating brains, being young and coming back from vacation and all, but it happens to us world-weary old people who haven't had a break in a long time. Sorry @Cyphoidbomb:. --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:33, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
You recently had a break and for significantly longer than mine. 'Course I don't know what you did during your break. Perhaps you didn't rest your deteriorating brain enough. I recommend fresh grilled salmon. That'll do it.--Bbb23 (talk) 17:37, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, unfortunately that wasn't a break in real life. Recommending fresh grilled salmon is never wrong, though. Anyway, welcome back. --Floquenbeam (talk) 17:42, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Funny thing, unlike most people I know, I don't like salmon, but during the vacation I was in salmon country and had this piece (and afterwards a second) of salmon cooked over a fire with a little bit of olive oil and black pepper, and it was absolutely one of the best bits of fish I've ever tasted.--Bbb23 (talk) 17:58, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
If by "salmon country" you mean the Pacific Northwest, don't tell me, as you'll probably break my heart. If you mean Atlantic salmon, then meh. That's what I have to eat these days, so I won't be jealous. --Floquenbeam (talk) 18:01, 23 May 2019 (UTC)


I don't know who the original sockpuppet editor was. It definitely needs a COI and AUTOBIO tag, and probably doesn't meet notability, but I wasn't sure whether it was a criteria for speedy deletion. Bkissin (talk) 18:09, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Without more, there's no basis for a G5.--Bbb23 (talk) 18:19, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

creator of deleted article[edit]

Hey Bbb. Long time no see. I hope you are well.
Could you or any admin please tell me who had created Bole India Jai Bhim? Thanks a lot in advance. —usernamekiran(talk) 20:50, 23 May 2019 (UTC)

Why do you ask?--Bbb23 (talk) 21:12, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
Nothing much special, but this comment got me interested. And I sometimes like to go through SPI cases. —usernamekiran(talk) 22:34, 23 May 2019 (UTC)
