I'm afraid this is one of those instances where the "auto-close thread after x days" feature might have come in handy...

why has dtobias made comments such as the one at the bottom here, when he is actually on this forum? Was it before he joined or is he being tongue-in-cheek? You have to go in the actual main talk history to see some of the comments, rather than that archive. http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=119293180

It's time for them to get their own Pythonesque Spammish Inquisition.

With 4-part harmony and 2-part melody.

(And some really painful lyrics.)

It appears Betacommand has a few threads about him (and more likely to follow before he's banned). Should we have a forum for him? The oldest thread goes back to April 2008.

I'd like to see Jonathan Hochman [Jehochman] [added to the list, DUROVA mentored him.

If U do a Google search of his name + Wikipedia, U'll see how Hochman is in the business of canvassing clients so he can make Wiki articles about their company.

Most of his posts are in the administrative areas. He claims to like to write about shipwrecks but he's most busy banning people from 9/11 related articles. (See my userpage how he banned me.)

He graduated from Yale (a recruiting ground for CIA agents) and then went to work a few years in Russia (or maybe USSR then), the CIA would certainly have an interest in useing him as an asset. (Bush, Senior, went to Yale and later sold oil well drilling equipment in the USSR, as U know, Bush went on to head the CIA.

Big discussion at a 9/11 forum, with me included, about recent sockpuppet/meatpuppet investigation in the WP article about Controlled demolition of the WTC. Hochman and George William Herbert are also mentioned in the 9/11 forum thread.

I think you will find that JH banned you under the consensus that your advocacy of The Controlled Demolition of the WTC was beginning to get beyond tiresome. You may find that the mods at WR have even less patience, especially if you start promoting the Jewish conspiracy angle as well.

My vote for understatement of the year. Can tell you're a Brit just for that one comment alone.

We don't do POV bans here. In fact, we do very few bans of any kind. Our members are entitled to conspiracy theorize to their hearts' content, provided they keep in mind that the overall objective of this forum is to provide a public service by illuminating the dark corners of WikiCorruption, and we frown on editors who try to supercede this mission with personal schticks and wakning. That said, the remedy is usually to move offending posts to the off-topic fora, not to ban the editor.

For more information on this topic, see our posting rules.

As far as a "notable editor" subforum for Jhochman is concerned, it has been a long time since we added one. As I recall, the criterion was five or more threads on the topic of the editor in question. It looks to me like Jehochman makes the cut. Are there any objections?

I'd question the need – all but one of those threads dates from last year, and most of them seem to be incidental to his spats with Durova and Elonka in 2008. No strong opinion, though.

He's a member here, so maybe we should just ask him? Most of those threads aren't really about him specifically - some may have started out that way, but he somehow ends up being a minor player in whatever dispute brought them about.

If we're essentially saying that these "Notable editors" subforums are a kind of "Hall of Shame" for egregiously nasty WP'ers, I'd probably vote against such a subforum for Mr. Hochman. I'm not sure he qualifies as "abusive," at least not chronically so... He's definitely over-officious, at times annoyingly smug, and I don't think he's the sort of person I'd want to hang out with on weekends. But if those things were the primary arbiters of who "gets in" and who doesn't, we'd have quite a few more of those subforums than we do now. blink.gif

Point taken, and also the point about most of his threads being outdated. Let's see what others have to say.

I did not say that the WR mods would ban for having a POV about the events of September 11, but would likely get tired even quicker of having every possible thread hijacked to express that view that which happened eventually at WP.

Different emphasis.

Another triumph for the Cirt fanboi mob.

Can we modify the subtitle for the FT2 forum? How about "Wikipedia's leading animal lover"?
