Check-user request[edit]

Hi, I think this IP editor is the troll who has been harassing me based on this and this. Please block if so. Could you also please block this proxy based on clear evidence of being the same person here.

Just in the past few days, they have reported me and another editor for socking here (perhaps a much longer block for the offending IP is needed - the admin who gave the one week block probably was unaware of what's been going on) and I got a notice that someone tried to hack into my account. Apparently things are going to get worse before getting better! Newshunter12 (talk) 15:36, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

I've put down a couple of VPN range blocks, which includes all those mentioned. -- zzuuzz (talk) 17:43, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
Another death threat. Is it possible you could add some temporary page protection to this article so this person cannot keep doing this again and again? Thank you for any help you can provide. Newshunter12 (talk) 01:58, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
Newshunter, I am sorry you had to read that. Zzuuzz, I blocked the IP (listed as a "network sharing device"), but I will leave the rest in your hands. Thanks, Drmies (talk) 02:01, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your help and consideration, Drmies. Newshunter12 (talk) 17:41, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
I am currently running this AfD Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Virginia McLaurin, and the IP voter 172.56.28.248 is almost certainly the troll who has been stalking me. Could you please block them and is it possible to semi-protect the AfD to block IP participation? Such a restriction isn't ideal, but not that many IP's even vote at AfD anyway and we know this person is just going to keep returning and mucking up the discussion. I understand if that isn't possible. Thank you for any help you can provide. Newshunter12 (talk) 02:13, 11 August 2019 (UTC)
You might be interested in reading this thread here as the IP stalker has yet again tried to use an editor who has made edits in the longevity sphere to get me blocked, this time by making a false confession that I am the person harassing them. Another admin already intervened, but I think you would be interested in keeping up to date on their activities. Newshunter12 (talk) 17:26, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Yup. I see from the AfD that 172.56.28.0/23 has been relatively quiet since, but that can probably be range blocked if they return on it. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:13, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for your help. Newshunter12 (talk) 18:31, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
They removed MfD votes of mine here and here, could you please block them? Thank you. Newshunter12 (talk) 17:34, 1 September 2019 (UTC)
@Newshunter12:Just to update, 172.56.28.0/23 is now out of action for 3 months. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:29, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

L?[edit]

lol what happened here? –MJLTalk 00:29, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Oh that? It was an operational malfunction. p -- zzuuzz (talk) 00:33, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Heads up[edit]

Hi Zzuuzz! Thanks for keeping an eye on the user creation log and other places, and for putting a kibosh to the recent... creations... ;-). I just ran into two more accounts that may be connected: Fuckingmylife, and Mydickburnsalotman. I figured that I'd let you know; they might be connected, or coincidentally just accounts that needed the mop and broom. ;-) I hope you have a great day, and I wish you happy editing. Keep up the great work... we need editors like you more than ever here. :-) ~Oshwah~(talk) (contribs) 07:42, 3 August 2019 (UTC)

Sock[edit]

Another sock, I fear? CassiantoTalk 19:29, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

Sent back to sockville. -- zzuuzz (talk) 19:46, 7 August 2019 (UTC)

I'm back[edit]

Hey, I'm back from my holiday ready to look into some more IPs. --MrClog (talk) 13:17, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

OK, I'll be with you in a few days probably. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:29, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
I think it will be next week now. -- zzuuzz (talk) 18:37, 22 August 2019 (UTC)
*Friendly reminder :)* --MrClog (talk) 18:42, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
@MrClog: As you can probably see I'm currently experiencing some time issues, which might persist for a while. So, I can't really think of a better test than running through the ten reports (on this page) which are currently listed at WP:OP. One thing I'd like to stress is that it's absolutely fine to not know the answer to something, but wrong answers are never a good thing. -- zzuuzz (talk) 11:38, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
I would have preferred, as I tried to mention, responses on this page. I think there is still some way to go. -- zzuuzz (talk) 21:33, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Sockpuppet[edit]

Hi. Can you perform a check on Atheera raj illalai? Agenda-driven, disruptive editing and personal attacks. All edits (other than in his own talk page) has been reverted by editors like Cyphoidbomb or Begoon. Likely a block evasion, at one point they attempted asking, but the user "acts" like nuts (possibly a trick for evading more questions), talks nonsense or abuse other Wikipedians. Definitely demands a probe. So, could you please. 2405:204:D20A:24D5:EC88:83A8:4053:B3E (talk) 19:19, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

Nothing springs to mind. I suspect their available time on the English Wikipedia may be limited in any case. -- zzuuzz (talk) 22:41, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Found out previous accounts – Anoop Balakumar and Anoop Balak, endorsing Dileep and Akshay Kumar, abusing Shah Rukh Khan, same behavior on talk. The question is how many more accounts? This person is abusively using multiple accounts. 2405:204:D205:5F2A:3499:F2EF:7E6C:6054 (talk) 09:33, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

Re:Sub Judice UK banner[edit]

Hello, I've been away for a couple of days so missed this discussion. Hopefully it's resolved now but I just wanted to comment on what happened. Somebody added the template to the 2019 British prorogation controversy article and I didn't think that was an appropriate place for it so I moved it to the talk page, although personally I still don't feel it's an appropriate use of that template. My understanding has always been it gets used in articles about criminal cases while legal proceedings are still ongoing to warn editors to err on the side of caution about what they add until the case is over. I wonder though if it doesn't just make matters more complicated than they have to be. I'd support a TFD nomination if you submit one, and for any other related stuff (there are clones of this for other countries that use English law. This is Paul (talk) 15:56, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the explanation, which makes some sense. As well as the ANI and refdesk discussions, you may want to check out the current TfD page and my comment there. -- zzuuzz (talk) 16:03, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
ok cheers. This is Paul (talk) 16:11, 18 September 2019 (UTC)

Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Kelvin Wu (financier)[edit]

Hi zzuuzz, Many thanks for looking into those 3 users who seemed to be part of an UPE farm. What do you make of the newly emerged user after the blocks? Identical editing behaviour, similar sort of time frame of account creation. Thx. pseudonym Jake Brockman talk 13:15, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, some very similar technical characteristics and lots of duck behaviour. I'll take a deeper look later, but I already partially foresee a block. You know, they call them farms because you can never get them clean. -- zzuuzz (talk) 13:44, 20 September 2019 (UTC)
