One can't always tell for sure what's a serious expression of WikiClique cultism and what's a clever parody of it, but this one certainly smells like a parody... and a humorous one at that.

No, it looks like the work of a 15 year old with no sense. Laughable, but not a parody.

This sort of outing MUST NOT BE TOLERATED!!!!1! - it is absolutely inappropriate for you to be making incorrect (and how do I know they're incorrect? never you mind) speculations about the real-life identity of this blogger. Someone should ban you. And then ban you again for good measure.

If Krimpet were outing (or attempting to out) a high-ranking
member of WP, s/he probably would be banned from WP.
And banned again from WB. And wikien-l, if s/he posts there
too.

But since WordBomb is an 'evil WR member', like myself, WP
considers it perfectly acceptable to out his other pseudonyms,
if he has any others.

Sorry, I don't have anything to do with that blog. However it does give me some ideas...
And Krimpet...apparently you've not been paying attention. Assuming WordBomb to be behind every shot at the Cabal is soooooo September, 2007. If the past month has demonstrated anything, it's that the list of people with a motive to do so is long and distinguished.

I just assumed that Krimpet was joining in the post modern irony and parody nature of the blog. Which mocks idiotic Wikipedia admins who falsely accuse everyone of being Wordbomb among other things.

That's what Krimpet was doing right? unsure.gif

Truth be told, I thought it was him too, the "Born at night, but not last night" seemed like a dead giveaway... but I guess it's just some misdirection by whatever genius is behind it.

(also this should probably be moved to the wikipedia in blogland forum)

What evidence could possibly have been found on March 13, 2008 to justify placing the "sockpuppet" tag on an account that hadn't posted since September 2007?

Other than increasingly strident WikiParanoia, that is...
