Next in the sockpuppet parade was one of my favorites:

Shalom wants his junk deleted (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Every contribution by this account was priceless (or worthless from a non-trolling perspective). Some links to get you excited:

I'll try to get this finished tonight.

Dmcdevit blocked my socks on two or three separate occasions:

Baseball Lola (T-C-L-K-R-D) only one edit on RFA, I think he didn't like me by this time

Palomalove (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Schon rules (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Deebaj Prathamesh (T-C-L-K-R-D)
The puny bambino (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Lacking hubris (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Soberknight (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Qwopple (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Vbomjja (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Ahackurm (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Some of those usernames were inspired by my discovery that certain character patterns caused the account to be reported at SPI even if the user was innocent. I created several of these accounts in rapid succession, and they didn't make it as far as SPI because an alert admin was watching the user creation log.

Pope BEANS (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Hubris BEANS (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Tanoli BEANS (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Next, I retired as "Shalom Yechiel" and gave Iridescent and Majorly a final "Burn!" (Check their talkpages at end of January 2009; too tired to find the links). Simultaneously I retired "Crystal whacker" and promised to abandon the site. It lasted until I pulled Kivel (T-C-L-K-R-D) out of the sleeper closet. I made some routine edits, then I moved rail accident articles (a point of contention in my 2008 RFA) and finally I did this: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=273139093 and Samir blocked me.

I entered "Willy on Wheels" territory with this sockpuppet investigation of my three accounts, which spammed welcome messages on users who had registered minutes earlier. My purpose was to discourage them from editing by causing them to click on a link to [[File:Anus.jpg]].

SPI: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Soc...gduckie/Archive

Flyingduckie (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Helloasdf999 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Goodbyeasdf999 (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Notably, "Helloasdf999" was blocked for welcoming new users without the admin being aware that the messages contained booby traps. Hilarity ensued in my unblock requests: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Helloasdf999 biggrin.gif

Finally, I exited as Chutznik (T-C-L-K-R-D) after a withdrawn run at ArbCom elections.

My last edits, fittingly, were vandalism by three more socks. I attacked an RFA, this time before it could gather enough support to pass. For a moment, I PWNED the universe!

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=341401872

Toothfairy1234 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Winklehimer (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Wakko and yakko (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Here lies my wiki-gravestone. This almost caused me to shiver, I was so spooked that someone remembered me! But then the edit war spoiled it just a bit wink.gif (see the next two diffs after the link):
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=373283258

Thanks everyone for reading! (I can almost hear the snoring...) yak.gif

You can get anything you want at Yechiel's Restaurant

I just got one thing to ask you, kid...

(Well maybe two things.)

1. Did you pick up the trash?

2. Did you learn anything?

Emphasis on were a chemistry student. Not anymore. But time spent on Wikipedia is not the reason I left.

If by question 1 you intend "Did I clean up the bad edits I made?" the answer is usually no, but someone else did. If you mean real-world, I was usually the roommate who took the garbage to curbside (or otherwise it didn't get done and we had to wait till the next pickup date).

I did learn some things, both about content and human behavior. Most things I wrote about on Wikipedia, I did not know very well until I prepared to write Wikipedia articles for them. For example related to a chemistry graduate school assignment, see Polarizable continuum model (T-H-L-K-D) A classmate thanked me for posting that. I learned that dialogue with editors in the Good Article peer review process, which I did as Crystal whacker, could be pleasant even with the inherent challenges of trying to grade someone else's work.

I just have one important question.

Did any of these socks interact with users Thekohser or Wikipedia Review, or any topical area that concerned those accounts? If so, please provide some links. If not, I think I'm done with this thread.

Do you care only about yourself? "What's in it for me?" biggrin.gif bored.gif tongue.gif huh.gif

I am not aware of any interaction with you or your sockpuppets, Greg. You can go back to sleep.

This thread needs to be updated based on recent developments.

For the record, I am NOT Mark Pollogrino (T-C-L-K-R-D) , despite what Raul654 says in his block summary. If Mark Pellegrini has the checkuser tool (I don't know if he still does), he should use it before he makes false accusations in a block summary. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=493722333 But I can honestly say I support what that anonymous jerk did. smile.gif

The other socks found by checkuser to be me are correctly identified as me.

Everything is either blocked or if not blocked, has its userpage redirected to my most recent alias, Chutznik (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Curiously, this was not blocked as a sock until last month. Evidently, contrary to folklore, WP people don't read this site carefully.
