Do you want me to clean out my sock drawer?

IPs, accounts, everything as much as I can remember and reconstruct. I can't promise everything because I don't have a list hand, but I can reconstruct almost all of it.

I'll post a list if and only if I receive ten or more "Yes" responses in the poll. biggrin.gif

Hey, if I had to disclose 'em all in order to win the favor of about half the Arb Com (even if that favor lasted only a couple of months), you should too!

What's in it for you, though?

It doesn't look like the poll's heading that way, but what if you got 10 yes and say 15 nos? You'd be obliged to post the list, yet you'd know that a majority of people didn't want you to?

A majority of people don't believe in civil rights for minorities.

A majority of people don't believe in remorse, forgiveness, or redemption.

A majority of people had no use for Socrates, Beckett, Galileo, or Darwin.

There are times when I am proud to be in the minority, even if I am a loathsome minority of one.

No, don't.

What a waste.

Hand them over to be recycled by someone else.

I mean, it would be good to break one's addiction ... but think of others would you?

Eh, why do you have to be sooooooooo negative? You could try to get Shalom to halt with a little love. Try this:


"Shalom, take a hint from Diana, Mary and Flo..."

Lol. The face is mine - from my Wikipedia userpage of 2007-08, and elsewhere - but the rest of the photo is not me IIRC.

I prefer to do this in installments because my purpose - as MZMcBride expressed in frustration - is to maximize trolling impact.

There are two stages in my wiki-career for this discursion: (1) November 2005 through July 2008, and (2) August 2008 through February 2010. I relocated in August 2008 and again in February 2010.

I did not edit before November 2005 nor after February 2010.

In period (1) I used the following accounts:

Shalom Yechiel (T-C-L-K-R-D) formerly known as YechielMan, then Shalom. My main account during this period.
Placeholder account (T-C-L-K-R-D) I edited from this account during a two week period when I claimed to be on wikibreak from Shalom. I was addicted to Wikipedia during this time.
SlimVirgil (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Buuuurrrrrrrr (T-C-L-K-R-D) - I did not create the account, but I hacked the password which the account creator put on his userpage.
Oommpapa (T-C-L-K-R-D)
MER-SEE (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Minorly (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Dodo Gogo (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Molag's Ball (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Kivel (T-C-L-K-R-D) - Deleted userpage (the "Innocence WikiProject") in April 2008. Revived as a sleeper in 2009.
Gym bow Whales (T-C-L-K-R-D) - no edits, forgot password. I still hope it gets blocked and that someone on Wikipedia argues against the block. Extra points if it goes to ANI.

Note that some IP addresses are shared university computers for which I made only some of the edits.

129.98.212.170 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
129.98.214.111 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
129.98.212.164 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
129.98.212.53 (T-C-L-K-R-D)

71.174.228.123 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
205.188.116.196 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
I'll wait until tomorrow, and possibly longer, before I post the socks from August 2008 and later.

Jon and Barry - why is this boring?

Don't you want to know all the stunts I've pulled on Wikipedia? Don't you want a chance to induct me into the sockpuppeteers hall of fame?

You need to do the digging to find the most "interesting" edits.

The few I bothered to sample were pretty lame 1-off-ers — is that all you got?

If you had any live ones left, the sock de gras would be to fork them over as PACMAN accounts.

I don't have any sleepers. Everything is either blocked or if not blocked, has its userpage redirected to my most recent alias, Chutznik (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Except for "Gym bow Whales" which has no edits and I forgot the password.

I had some much more interesting socking activities starting in August 2008. Stay tuned, it will get better.

Why do you even bother to register named accounts? The WMF Policy expressly states that you don't have to be registered to post. Depending on where you live, you probably have a pool of IP addresses that span the metro area where you live. And you can edit from an IPv6 address, too.

What are they gonna do, block the entire third world to keep you out?
