Fans of irony will enjoy the latest
at Talk:Lyndon LaRouche, where a new batch of pro-LaRouche socks have been caught up in Will Beback's dragnet, and Janey and Johnny are holding forth on how socks must never be allowed to comment on the talk page.
This is rather odd.
The mostly inactive David Gerard had quietly blocked four accounts
as checkuser-confirmed sockpuppets of Gnetwerker (now known as 7265 (T-C-L-K-R-D)
). Two of the accounts, Guillermo Ugarte (T-C-L-K-R-D)
and ClarkLewis (T-C-L-K-R-D)
, were interrupting the status quo on LaRouche-related pages. In the 4 years and 3000 edits
before being blocked, Gnetwerker (or his various prior socks that I checked) never touched those.
A day later, Cirt tags ClarkLewis but not the other 3 and recreates "Category:Wikipedia sockpuppets of Gnetwerker"
.Did he check with SlimVirgin who deleted that page along with dozens of others last year "as agreed"
. I wonder what was agreed, and if it has now been breached?
Will Beback had been so sure
that the account Guillermo Ugarte was a returning Herschelkrustofsky.
I have now analyzed Guilermo Ugarte's contributions and find that they follow the same pattern as the HK socks. Based on that analysis, on the similarity of edits, and on the new account's arrival shortly after the blocking of previous socks, I am confident that this is another HK sock account. I can give more details by email. ·:· Will Beback ·:· 18:42, 31 October 2008 (UTC)
Using the intersecting contributions tool
, we see that three of the four newly blocked accounts, besides editing LaRouche stuff, do share some common interests with Gnetwerker.
Gnetwerker and Hiro Antagonist (135 edits | registered at: 2008-09-09)
Gnetwerker and ClarkLewis (146 edits | registered at: 2007-03-17)
Gnetwerkwer and Guillermo Ugarte (10 edits | registered at: 2007-06-28)
So ¿Quién es mas macho? The checkuser wielding David Gerard or Will Beback with his finely-honed linguistic skills?
