User:Yunder4 reported by User:Insertcleverphrasehere (Result: Warned)[edit]

Editor has repeatedly added a large block of unreferenced material to Venom Vicious, despite multiple reversions by 4 different editors, and numerous warnings on their talk page. InsertCleverPhraseHere 06:41, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Note: This user also appears to be a sock account of User:Afro55, who has created this article on three other occasions. See User:Afro55/Venom vicious and User Talk:Afro55. In particular looking at the edit history of User:Afro55/Venom vicious reveals the IP 68.134.110.149 which just tried to remove the AfD message from Venom Vicious. InsertCleverPhraseHere 09:32, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Result: User:Yunder4 is warned against any more warring at Venom Vicious. I've semiprotected the article to prevent any IP socking while the AfD is running. User:Afro55 could be an abandoned account since it hasn't edited since 2011. If the AfD ends with delete we can salt the title. EdJohnston (talk) 23:57, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

Update: User finally responded at ANI, wanting to argue about the girlfriends of Morrison's youth. The issue at hand isn't what love affairs of a notable person should or shouldn't be footnotes in their bios, the issue is with this SPA's edit-warring, the unusable, WP:BLP-vio text, the non-WP:RS sourcing and refusal to engage with other editors. The SPA continues to just hit "undo" and is now removing stable text to put in complete crap. I know fan-driven disruptions like this drive good editors away and it's happening now. - CorbieV 18:54, 20 May 2016 (UTC)

The proof is here that I sourced and paraphrased correctly: "Heck no, what he's posting , for example | this link you pointed to in your post above is referenced to a reliable newspaper, and he's accurately paraphrasing what's in that article, as he did in the Jim MOrrison article. I think a boomerang is due. KoshVorlon 16:55, 20 May 2016 (UTC)"

Nothing was resolved. Long after passing 3RR with the bare URL dumps and 4 hits on "undo", long after being reported here and at ANI an uninvolved user - who seems unfamiliar with the material - made a comment. That is not "resolution" as this requires admin intervention. More recently, this SPA has started dumping long, confusing rants here and at the talk page. None of it helps resolve anything as the user still does not understand how to properly source or write an article. - CorbieV 17:05, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

If you are familiar with the history of Jim Morrison as you say, you would know how influential Mary Werbelow's relationship with Jim was to their music as he claimed the first two albums were about her besides she is well documented. This is easily searchable.

This page is about Jim Morrison not Patricia Kennealy who is the only person claiming their was witnesses at her apartment for a late night "hand-fasting ceremony" and she is the only witness that he called her his wife nor have any letters she claims to have been made public. (Sole source/Self-reporting at a later date/No collaboration with Morrison's family,band, or friends). If you want to promote her point of view then you must mention that in her autobiography where she claims there were witnesses she also shows a picture of the certificate with "blacked out" names where the priest and witness's names would be' so no there any proof that anyone other than Patricia performed this ceremony or she had seen him more than a handful of days before the ceremony. [1] She made claims to be his wife much later when she started using Morrison on her book that came out 20 years later. [2] The Doors or the family of Jim did acknowledge her in any way. There is only one picture of her and Jim where she cropped someone else out that was at the office with them. There are plenty of accounts of woman who knew well. Kennealy seems to have only seen him a handful of times since meeting in January 1970 and the ceremony in June 1970 which she stated she did not think he took it too seriously with "probably not too serious". [3] [4] Poofdragon (talk) 20:04, 21 May 2016 (UTC)

This link shows that CorbieVreccan has a history of removing this same information that I added back with a book reference and they removed again. Who really is the "edit warrior"? They added unspurced information and a blog. [5] I see CorbieVreccan has dozens of edits at that same Wikipedia page but on Jim Morrison's page there needs to be a fair representation of who he actually was his girlfriend or wife versus who he dated . Poofdragon (talk) 00:44, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Poofdragon doesn't appear to know the difference between including a link to a BLP's official site/blog, and relying on fanzine blogs as sources in other articles. Reliable bok publishers vet their content with their legal teams, and it's rather offensive to a reputable publisher to sprinkle "alleged" on some content and not on others, due to POV pushing.
But again: any discussion about sources should have happened on the article talk page. This noticeboard and report is about Poofdragon's aggressive violations of 3RR. Productive editors get driven away when aggressive SPAs are allowed to disrupt like this. Usually, we find other, connected issues with SPAs and I expect this situation will be no different. Clearly not enough productive editors have the intestinal fortitude to deal with the skeleton armies that cluster round fan-attracting articles like this one. It's unfortunate. Maybe protecting the article would be better if no one is willing to act on the 3RR violations. - CorbieV 05:09, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

Comments:

Extremely unfriendly and hostile user who garbs themselves in the apparent authority of an admin and set the tone of me for this interaction by accusing me of disruptive editing and threatening a block. A true internet bully who has already chilled the speech of many others. See the abuse of warnings here: [51]. I tried to reason with this user, and their harassment only continued. See: [52].

I wanted to avoid y'all having your time taken up by this, but in retrospect, this user is a true problem user and should get an official sanction for their repeated violations of Wikipedia's salutary policies of openness and inclusion. I truly hope that someone reviews User:Meter's conduct and lets them know that they are acting to the community's detriment. If corrected, I think the user's apparent time investment in the site could be a benefit to Wikipedia and its community.

On the issue of The Hunger Games, I'm fine with the present version as edited, and I was only trying to present the controversy in a manner commensurate with the fanfare it received in the media. I no longer care about the Hunger Games issue and simply don't want to be bullied by Meter, because all my life I've stood up to bullies and tried to support the underdogs.

For the record, one can immediately discern that at no point did I violate the 3RR. Instead, I admitted that my first edit was not neutral enough, changed it considerably and apologized for using Buzzfeed as a source, then reposted the corrected text. I think all I was guilty of is disagreeing with this bully.

It is true that I re-added my talk with Meters to their user talk page, but only because I was worried that you guys wouldn't see her continual trouncing of my repeated attempts to de-escalate the conflict. Each time I offered an olive branch, I was firmly and rudely rebuked. This whole interaction saddens me.

Thanks and sorry for taking up your time! — Preceding unsigned comment added by Gentlejackjones (talkcontribs) 06:27, May 25, 2016‎

I'd ask for a boomerang for this farce, but this is already covered in the previous thread.
  1. Gentlejackjones' supposed edit warring warning says nothing at all about edit warring.
  2. The supposed attempt to discuss the edits [53] was a retroactive addition to an hour-old thread that had long since already been answered by me and then again by him.
  3. I was removing Gentlejackjones' repeated unwanted postings of the same material from my own talk page (see previous AN#), which I am allowed to do.
  4. As I already pointed out, I told him on his talk page twice to stop posting the material.
  5. I am not and have never claimed to be an admin.
  6. This AN3 was not opened until after I pointed out above that he had left an AN3 notice without opening one, and almost 40 minutes after notifying me.
  7. The abuse of warnings he complains about wasn't even a warning. It's an explanation of what was going on.
  8. The supposed continuation of my harassment is actually a diff of one of his edits. Meters (talk) 07:03, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

User: Mike1901& John Mayard Friedman hacking wikipedia (Result: Filer blocked)[edit]

The users have repeatedly been blanking out sections of The University of Buckingham wikipwdia article for bribes, similar to a robot, to lure people into the University of Buckingham, since wikipedia is seen by many African and East Asian countries as first source, while statements on the particular page are false. Further measures will involve corruption cases against the perpetrators Mike1901, Dexter and Friedman. Wikipedia is asked to ban these hackers from operating on the charity platform for bribes and using the media for illegal activities! — Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.112.219.188 (talk) 14:31, 25 May 2016 (UTC)

This is clearly edit warring, and I'm honestly surprised that the user didn't get warned/blocked six hours ago. They seem to have a clear case of OWNership and I'm concerned they're going to keep trying to remove the edits made by other contributors. Primefac (talk) 17:51, 26 May 2016 (UTC)

  • Stop x nuvola with clock.svg Blocked – for a period of 36 hours. User:Primefac, you never warned the user about edit warring, so I don't see how they would know there's a rule against it. Please always warn, especially new users. However, I've blocked them for persistently removing the AfD template from Leema Dhar despite the very clear notice that it is not to be removed.

This user has a history of edit warring and specifically when it comes to the topic of Austin Petersen. Even though a discussion is taking place with multiple users contesting his edits (which violate WP:NPOV) he still reverts the edits claiming they are sourced. The sources he provides do not support the information he is putting in the article and violate WP:WPNOTRS and WP:SYNTH. Acidskater (talk) 05:40, 27 May 2016 (UTC)


  • I created the section in question with well-sourced material. Acidskater deleted my material and added his own. He is a political fan of Austin Petersen and has been trying to discredit me. Bunco man (talk) 05:48, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

Comments: I was a bit late on getting to the talk page, but I did get there. I would like nothing more than to stay away form this editor. I 'banned' them from my talk page, but they came to it a couple days later, ignored my request that they stay away, and started playing nice asking for help. I did not answer, I suddenly find my pages being stalked by this editor. I really want nothing more than to be far away from them, but they insist on interfering in my work. The reference removed is a very, very good ref! The Institution in question bought the artwork that the ref refers to, on behalf of the Canadian taxpayers. I knwo their process-- they have an actual team of due diligence people. That kind of ref is gold in the art world. HappyValleyEditor (talk) 08:32, 28 May 2016 (UTC)

NoW that I read the policy above, I may have reverted too many times as well (3). In any case if there is a method for getting this editor to stay away from my pages (is it not common sene to do so when there are repeated disputes?) I would appreciate that as well.
