My sockpuppet Throwaway666 (T-C-L-K-R-D) was blocked by Sandstein as a sockpuppet of a banned user.

HEY SANDSTEIN! I'M NOT BANNED! (yet). biggrin.gif

The edit summary was "Majorly's real name is Alex Newman." By the way, I have another sockpuppet which put something similar in another edit summary and it wasn't oversighted, but I don't think I can track it down.

He used to sign his name "Alex" on Wikipedia. Is he trying to pull a Fae?

http://www.archivum.info/wikien-l@lists.wi...-real-name.html

He's been using his real name and associating it with his Wikipedia name for years. What's changed? unsure.gif hmmm.gif

Which means Raul just outed Majorly again and in an edit summary. dry.gif frustrated.gif

Of course, Raul could say "Hey! I did it on purpose to prove a point about BADSITES and CLEANSTART (i.e. Fae) being stupid, especially when there is public information out there that make doing a CLEANSTART stupid!" In which case, Raul is a rebel on the side of justice violating WP:POINT and utilizing irony with common sense. smile.gif applause.gif

Or maybe he's not the sharpest tool in the drawer? ermm.gif unsure.gif

Edit: Ah, he or someone else must have seen it. The edit summary is over-sighted. Too late, though.

Sweet. No regrets.

I have a sleeper sock with more than 100 edits who was not blocked. Raul? Your move!

Let the checkuser begin. I'm half tempted to spare them the trouble and spill the beans here, but I will make them work for this one time.

The drama has died down on ANI. Now I'm indef-blocked but not banned, which seems not to make any difference. I was celebrating the fact that I got banned (it was either that or adminship I wanted, and getting banned is easier) but then I saw everyone opposing the ban and thought "Darn!" But more socking is unlikely to change the status quo.

It was an experiment to see how trigger happy the admins were. I won and lost simultaneously.
