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?

I created named accounts for many reasons. For example, only named accounts can edit through semiprotection. Also, named accounts keep contribution logs together even though the edits were made in different places.

By the way, Barry, you and I live in the same metropolitan area.

Are you on Verizon, Comcast, or RCN?

If you are not on Verizon, are you able to use SSH in Linux?

No I don't. I know why they opposed me at RFA. I've discussed it with Iridescent, and we've reached a stage of mutual understanding. But I still say, not only to her but to many others, that it's fine to oppose me for what I did, but not for what I didn't do. I still believe that my RFA in July 2008 was one of the all-time character assassinations Wikipedia has ever seen. I saw many false statements about me from many different individuals.

I intended to start over as "Buki ben Yogli" and become an admin under a "clean start." Then I forgot the password so I started a new account, "Storkynoob". Then I received a new password by email to bukibenyogli@gmail.com (bring on the spambots, I don't care). By then I had already started to slide down the proverbial slippery slope.

A month later, Sam Korn bangs the hammer

Buki ben Yogli (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Storkynoob (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Wow Caninaro (T-C-L-K-R-D)
La vite crab (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Tornado Shark (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Bone killing ox (T-C-L-K-R-D)
Bone crunching cow (T-C-L-K-R-D)

Extra points if you can state the connection between Wow Caninaro, La vite crab, and Tornado Shark.

Crystal whacker (T-C-L-K-R-D) survived the sting. I edited from "Crystal whacker" from a school IP address accessible to thousands of students, and Sam could not be certain that it was I. The other accounts (possibly except for Storkynoob) edited from my home.

My IP addresses were:

24.186.165.121 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
129.49.7.125 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
129.49.51.50 (T-C-L-K-R-D)

There are some juicy block logs to admire. I'll have more later.

Have you considered going on anti-anxiety medication, Shalom? Pardon my bluntness, but no sane person would be so obsessed with a website.

Anti-anxiety medications have their drawbacks. I agree he's obsessed, and it's alarming. Imagine if there were an entire web forum obsessed with the antics of a website.

It could be populated by some real strange characters. fear.gif

How about a fine lady to take your mind off of all things Wiki? evilgrin.gif

Is there a lady in the house who wants to do a good deed for a Wikiholic in crisis? smile.gif

I certainly don't recommend medication unless absolutely necessary and ordered by a medical doctor. It has helped me. I no longer think everyone's out to get me. I know now that SOME people are out to get me! fear.gif

I should know better than to provide medical advice, even in jest. I believe Somey suggested to someone on here once to go cut their head off and... well... we can't suggest that anymore. dry.gif unhappy.gif

Nice name!!!


Yes, I once attempted an unbanning on the ground that the account name was too good to lose but the humorless twats just could see the value in that.

I suppose we could just go on the rampaging to use up as many good of the good names as possible leaving impossible to remember telephone number or encryption key style monickers ...

When I cannot think of who to be, I often just use the Wikipedia's own password generator which, sometimes, is surprising perspicacious. This is genuine and worthy enough of a screenshot, I thought.

I still think this is all a terrible waste of resources shalom and so if you have any good unblocked and untraceable ones, let us know off forum.

A quick search taught me there are plenty of nice name generators out there including this one just ripe for your average role playing Wikipedian ... http://www.allanime.org/?207

Whether Fantasy Female, Elvin or Orc Male ... you can have it all here.

Hmm, clever.

What cracks me up about All Anime:
in 2006, they voted the girl from Elfen Lied the "cutest anime girl of the year".
And whoever runs the site admitted to never having seen Elfen Lied.
(FYI, the girl in Elfen Lied had telekinetic powers, and used them---to tear people's heads and limbs off.
I've got a copy on DVD. It is easily one of the most disturbing, fucked-up cartoons ever made.)

My next sockpuppet adventure was "Somey from WR."

Somey from WR (T-C-L-K-R-D)

See Wikipedia Review thread: http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?showtopic=20774

and my victory lap months later: http://wikipediareview.com/index.php?showt...52&#entry164452

For laughs, compare Alison's block log summary ("Quit socking already. I've asked before unhappy.gif") with her comment on the above-linked WR thread (I just blocked it. Meanie-me dry.gif Yeah, I know who it is but I ain't tellin' biggrin.gif ).
