Who is he? He has an interest in literature and has been poking around Malleus's page. He is an obvious sock, and he is definitely not me.

Even weirder.

So not only are they a sock, but they are trying to work on my articles? blink.gif

He started well after I was banned, yet his edits are rather strange. I'm surprised none of the usual suspects has filed an SPI request against him accusing him of being me.



By the way, I think I know who he is.

It doesn't matter. The Malleus thread mentioned him by name so there's no way he's not going to want to get a whole WR thread on it.

His articles indeed. They're Wikipedia's now.

Close the thread, before Ottava gets into 3rd gear.

Look at the knowledge of formatting, the earliest pages, and other things like the above link that show knowledge and background the person shouldn't have. I don't want to reveal more because I'm pretty sure that I worked with the person in the past.

If he's competently working on the articles you've written, and also not causing the sort of trouble which for whatever reason tends to arise in your presence, then why would they want to CheckUser him?
