It seems more likely that the password of a dormant admin account was guessed by someone.

This was all very strange and the outcome quite surprising. It was the second request for a sockpuppet investigation concerning Rrrrr5, but this time with checkuser ticked. Maunus made the first request, smelling a rat, but nothing was found then. It seems that the accounts are all operated by one person, so at the moment it doesn't seem to be a hacked password.

I read this. Pursuing Mikemikev is one of your obsessions, isn't it?

You just can't resist coming here to bullshit people, can you?

On YouTube Mikemikev wrote a stream of racist attacks, so bad that his account was shut down.

Youtube postings of Mikemikev

On wikipedia he has invented socks with names like "Juden Raus", a username that expressed his personal racist point of view fairly succinctly. One of the newly found socks was not much better:

What a thoroughly disgusting person. "Do you even know the Jews push for you to come here because they're scared of white power and a potential Nazi revival. So they figure that mixing us with morons like you will weaken us to the point where we can't resist their dominance. And they're right." With people like him around I don't think we could add more morons with out hitting the saturation point.

CU evidence goes back three months. There's no way they could have told if the person using Spencer195 was the same one using it now.

Behind the login wall now but here's the cache for the curious.

I'm so overwhelmed by the amount of crazy in Mikemikev's post that I'm at loss on where to start mocking it.

Up to a point. If a checkuser is run now it can only go back three months. But maybe Spencer195 had been checked at some point in the past, whether for some reason or just because a CU felt like doing it That CU could have copied the results to a file and kept it. Or maybe Spencer195 was stupid enough to send someone an e-mail not using Gmail; then the IP would be in the e-mail header forever.

This is one of those folks whose presence on Wikipedia SHOULD be pursued. For the most part I'm of the mind that there's too much petty blocking and banning going on - lots of it unfairly - but that doesn't mean that there aren't actual accounts which deserve to get ban hammer smacked. This is one of them.

Yes, he probably does deserve it.

But you also have to remember Mathsci's history of chasing people like a maniac---including anyone he thinks might be them.
Not to mention his amazing petulance when he doesn't get his way.....I suspect Abd would have a few choice things to say about Mathsci right about now......

Real encyclopedias don't have loose screws, running private Inquisitions.

Eric Barbour is supporting a fairly nasty racist bigot. I am sure that he has his reasons..

Returning to the subject, it is beginning to look highly unlikely that whoever is operatting Spencer195's account will be editing wikipedia for very much longer.

One of the annoying features of Wikipedia is that there are so many marginalized people there that it's a virtual certainty that, for any dispute, there is someone on both sides of it who can be used to tar his or her codisputants with guilt by association. Experienced Wikipedians do this without even thinking very hard about it.

One of the many reasons that sane people simply avoid Wikipedia entirely.

Unless they create more sockpuppets, which they will since they are engaged in some kind of ideological battle. unhappy.gif

Given that he stopped editing in 2005, I find that highly unlikely. Also, I doubt Mikemikev knows Mandarin.

Mikemikev spent four months in China teaching English as a foreign langauge at the North China Electric University., although the timing is wrong.

Spencer195 has now been indefinitely blocked by Deskana, who gave these reasons for blocking.
