Actually, the FBI stuff was sort of related, because Looch has been called a "stalker" on and off WP by JzG, even though it was clear to those of us that participated on WikiAbuse that there was at least as much stalking going on by JzG as there was by Looch...if not more (read: almost certainly much more....)
If Looch called the authorities everytime that JzG called him a stalker, there would be an awfully large file somewhere....although I don't think that any of it would be actionable, as far as I can tell (of course, not being a lawyer...)
Could anybody link me to places that JzG has called me a "stalker?"
Wiki Witch of the West - I was very confused what you were talking about. Then I figured out that you are Durova, and it made more sense. Also, sorry I misquoted you in my initial post in this thread. It was Ryulong who said the quote in my sig, not you. I mixed it up.
You asked me something about Eyrian. That name is not ringing a bell. Did I have interactions with Eyrian on Wikipedia? I'm not saying I didn't...I just don't remember.
How do you feel about the other editors? Let's start with Curse of Fenric, who quit the site and never returned while you refused to come clean about the BooyakaDell account being you.
I just glanced through every last one of Curse of Fenric's edits. The issue was that I was prodding the Australian professional wrestler articles which he argued did not deserve to be prodded and were prodded in bad faith. I do not see a single - not even ONE - Australian professional wrestler article which CoF edited which remains on Wikipedia as of today. That tells me that I was right all along that the wrestlers that he said were notable were really not notable. If they were notable, their profiles would still remain on Wikipedia. Every single one of those wrestler articles have been deleted, and so have many of the promotion articles he worked on, including Wrestle Zone Wrestling and Professional Championship Wrestling (Australia). I disagreed with the articles that he thought were notable enough to be included on Wikipedia, and it appears that the rest of the community did as well.
Hey SirFozzie, good to hear from you. In response to what you said about Burntsauce - it says at List of Banned Users
under the name Burntsauce, "Banned as a meatpuppet of community-banned user JB196." Whether the official reason reads "meatpuppet" or reads "sockpuppet," in my opinion, it is clear that many (most?) people involved thought Burntsauce was me (and Burntsauce wasn't me). It also says basically the same thing here
This is all going back very far, but as I recall, one of my gripes was always that the standard protocol for banning somebody was not followed in my initial ban (of the account JB196). With Burntsauce, Alkivar, etc. there was at least a formal protocol, but with me, as far as I can remember/tell, there was no such standard protocol. Anybody can still see the whole thing (with Deskana changing the 48 hour block to indef) for themself on my JB196 talk page. If the standard protocol had been followed for my JB196 account, there never would've been any reason for me to sockpuppet. What I was doing was far far far from blatant vandalism; therefore, there should have been some sort of process initiated before I was banned. As far as I can recall, there were never any instances of me sockpuppetting while I had my JB196 account, right? Heck, even TJ Spyke was sockpuppetting while his TJ Spyke account was (and in fact, it still is) intact.
Furthermore, the discussion
which the WP:List of Banned Users page says was what led to my community ban, actually happened months after my JB196 account was banned. There never was a community ban until the sockpuppeting began. What there was was a ban by Deskana which spiraled into disaster. What I'm saying is...I was already banned long before that discussion ("Probable_socks_of_banned_user:_seeking_community_agreement_to_ban") was initiated!BREAKING NEWS:
Another user banned as a sockpuppet whose not me! I just found this now: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:ReverseStabber
I have no idea who ReverseStabber is, but it says they're a sockpuppet of me! How many more accounts are there who've been banned as me and aren't me that I don't know about??????????????
FURTHER EDIT: And another person who was wrongly banned as a sockpuppet of me that I just found: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...oldid=167565544
And look who made the ban: Durova! http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=...%3AJohnEMcClure
I would appreciate if you could address this, Durova. I do not understand how JohnEMcClure resembled me at all. He did not make a single wrestling article edit that still exists, as far as I can tell. Also, I do not agree with what you said here
in regards to Burntsauce ruining articles. I think Burntsauce helped many articles.
Scandalous, I tell you!
Imagine what I'd find out if I actually spent more than two minutes looking for this stuff...This post has been edited by Looch: Tue 8th December 2009, 7:21am
